Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 15:11:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McManus should be expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks. If you're not afraid to spend on a kicker at FantasyScore, McManus ($3,600; 7.2% of cap) could be a fine play.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker feels great physically and is ready to return to the team, but he stopped short of committing to playing in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. "That's a coach's decision," Welker said. " ... I'm preparing like I'm going to play." Welker was back on the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Welker has been physically cleared and is going through the game plan with the team this week, so we'd expect him to suit up against the Seahawks. You won't have to worry about Welker at FantasyScore this week, since he's not eligible, but plan to return him to your standard lineups if he's active.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Welker won't be available at FantasyScore this week, but he should be returned immediately to all standard lineups against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: As mentioned previously, Welker is not guaranteed to play in Week 3. He is priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a cheap gamble to take this week, but it's a very poor matchup.

Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. played 81 of 86 defensive snaps in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs after playing in only 39 snaps in Week 1. It's a sign that he's making good progress after knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Welker should be good to go in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He's a low-end WR2 option, but there's always the injury/concussion risk.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has been a fine fantasy option in the first two weeks despite not reaching the end zone. His usage in the offense could take a hit, though, if Wes Welker returns in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas dropped three passes in the team's Week 1 game, but he says the rough outing is behind him, and he expects to fix the problem. "My main thing was trying to get the ball up the field too fast," Thomas said. "So, this week has been mainly watch the ball in before I make the move."
Fantasy Tip: Thomas had just four catches for 48 yards in Week 1, but he left a lot of yardage on the table because of the drops. Meanwhile, he was targeted a team-high 11 times so the poor performance was likely a one-game occurrence. Thomas is the highest-priced receiver in FantasyScore at $8,000 (16% of cap) in Week 2, but he could live up to his price tag against a Kansas City defense that he torched for 227 yards in two meetings last year.

Fantasy Tip: He should be owned and could be a solid start in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to avoid Welker in the upcoming week, even if he is able to suit up and play. Let him knock the rust off before relying upon him for one of your lineup spots.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is eligible to return to the field in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 14, following the agreement between the league and NFLPA on terms for the new drug policy.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Welker will be activated by the team since he hasn't practiced all week, and FantasyScore owners probably want to wait a week to see how he produces before plugging him back into the active lineup.
