Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will be eased back into the offense this offseason because of his late return to the team. The Broncos want to gauge where Thomas is physically before he's cleared for full contact practices.
Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a big shock. Thomas wasn't with the Broncos for the whole offseason as his contract extension was being determined and negotiated. Despite being brought along more slowly, Thomas should still pick up everything he needs to by the time the regular season rolls around. He should be one of the top wide receivers off draft boards.

Fantasy Tip: Green has not had more than nine receptions in any season since he joined the NFL but should have a bigger role this season. Green probably should not be selected in drafts this season but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is expected to move into the slot in three-wide receiver formations, so he'll still be a standout for fantasy owners in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). He might have slightly fewer numbers in standard formats, but he is still a strong WR2 or flex fantasy option in all formats.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is signed to his five-year deal, but he missed all of the offseason workouts and organized team activities (OTAs), so it will take a bit of time before he is up to speed.
Fantasy Tip: Remember, Thomas is learning new head coach Gary Kubiak's offense, so he will be playing catch-up during training camp and the preseason. Still, he can be expected to be a top fantasy target at his position, if not the top receiver in all formats.

Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell is in the final year of his contract. He will be battling other receivers for backup spots, but is believed to be at the top of the list for the No. 4 job. He could be especially useful if he works his way into a kickoff return job.
Fantasy Tip: Caldwell isn't expected to have a huge fantasy impact unless one of the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart suffers a long-term injury. Avoid him on draft day, but remember him off the waiver wire if injuries strike.

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) appears to be completely healed from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last summer. He did well in organized team activities (OTAs), and was running crisp routes. He is in the mix to serve on punt-return duties.
Fantasy Tip: Norwood could potentially push Andre Caldwell for a spot as the No. 4 receiver, working his way up from negligible fantasy appeal to minimal. But realistically he needs an injury or two to one of the top three receivers to have any meaningful targets and value.
