C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/16/18 7:40am ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be released Monday, April 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Anderson had a so-so year, but he rushed for a career-high 1,007 yards, with three scores and a 28-224-1 receiving line. He'll be in the RB3 mix in fantasy in the right situation.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 4/16/18 7:58am ET
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker is atop the depth chart after the release of RB C.J. Anderson Monday, April 16.
Huddle Up: This is subject to change as it's possible the team could draft Saquon Barkley if he makes it to No. 5. Booker has rushed for a paltry 3.6 yards per carry in 253 career rushes. If he's in position for a big workload, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/15/18 6:42pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said he will be at the start of the offseason workout program Monday, April 16, and he is using the rumors that he was being traded as motivation.
Huddle Up: There is still no guarantee that Anderson will be with the Broncos when the season begins, but if he does remain the starter in Denver, he has RB2 potential.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/10/18 9:04am ET
The Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins reportedly had a verbal agreement in place to trade RB C.J. Anderson for OT Ja'Wuan James before the Dolphins 'surprisingly nixed' the deal, according to Denver 7's Troy Renck.
Huddle Up: It seems as though Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who was Denver's offensive coordinator for the first two seasons of Anderson's career, has tried to get him to Miami in each of the three years he has been in charge. The report confirms the Dolphins have doubts about committing to Kenyan Drake full-time and the Broncos wouldn't mind parting with Anderson to get out from under the $4.5 million they will open him for the upcoming season.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 3/29/18 8:20pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson has to win his one-on-one matchups to help out WR Demaryius Thomas and WR Emmanuel Sanders, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'We're counting on that kid to come in and play for us, especially in the slot,' Joseph said.
Huddle Up: Henderson won't have much value in redraft leagues as Denver's third receiver, but he is worth owning in dynasty formats.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 3/28/18 3:49pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is no longer a trade target for the Miami Dolphins since the Dolphins signed Frank Gore.
Huddle Up: Gore likely will be sharing playing time with Kenyan Drake next season and should see a decent amount of touches. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues. Anderson is still with the Broncos at this point, but his status is uncertain. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back if he starts for the Broncos.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 3/25/18 7:06pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson 'may or may not' be back with the team in 2018, general manager John Elway said Sunday, March 25.
Huddle Up: Anderson has RB2 potential if he remains atop the depth chart in Denver's backfield, but his value could drop if he lands elsewhere or if the Broncos add another back early in the draft.
Brandon McManus - PKPosted 3/18/18 4:28pm ET
Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus' $2.25 million salary for 2018 became fully guaranteed on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: McManus, who made just just 75 percent of his field goals in 2017, has seen his total points go down in each of his past two seasons. He ended up with just 99 points in 2017, but could rebound with 100-plus points if the team is better. Kicking well above sea level will always make a Denver kicker a solid fantasy option.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 3/16/18 1:30pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is the backup to QB Case Keenum, head coach Vance Joseph said Friday, March 16, although the team continues to look at top quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft. 'Paxton is still young,' president of football operations John Elway said. 'We still have high hopes for Paxton. He's a young guy that is talented. He's been here for two years and had a tough year last year with the injuries and everything, but we still have high hopes for Paxton to come in here and compete and continue to grow as a quarterback. That is the expectation for Paxton.'
Huddle Up: The team might have high hopes for Lynch, but if they draft another prospect in the first-round it might never happen for Lynch in the Mile High City. Case Keenum will be starting in 2018, while also mentoring a young quarterback. It might not be Lynch he is mentoring.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 3/16/18 2:07pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has $1 million in annual incentives, and they're entirely based on playoff wins.
Huddle Up: Playoff wins do not mean anything to fantasy owners, who will be done by then. However, if he is able to realize those incentives it likely means he played at a high level during the regular season for his fantasy owners. He has one of the better one-two wideout duos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so expect big things out of Keenum.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 3/14/18 3:00pm ET
The Minnesota Vikings are finalizing a trade for QB Trevor Siemian from the Denver Broncos, a source said Wednesday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Siemian will serve as the backup to newly added QB Kirk Cousins in the Twin Cities. He will have no fantasy appeal unless Cousins suffers some sort of long-term injury.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 3/13/18 10:40am ET
The Denver Broncos officially exercised the $4 million option bonus in WR Demaryius Thomas' contract Tuesday, March 13, locking him $12.5 million between salary and bonuses in 2018.
Huddle Up: Thomas is coming off a pair of disappointing seasons - for him anyway - but the Broncos appear confident the 30-year-old's production is more of a result of a bad quarterback play than a decline of skill. It's a reasonable assumption. While the expected addition of Case Keenum probably won't resuscitate Thomas' value to where it was when Peyton Manning was around, he should be able to enjoy another 90-catch, 1,000-yard season in 2018.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 3/13/18 7:21pm ET
The Denver Broncos are expected to move on from QB Trevor Siemian, and they have already fielded calls from interested teams, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Siemian started 24 games for the Broncos, but his services are no longer needed with Case Keenum signing in the Mile High City to be the team's starting signal caller. He'll likely go somewhere to be a backup and that means the days of fantasy consideration in deeper leagues are in the rear-view mirror.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 3/12/18 9:52am ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is not expected to be released at this point, but the Broncos are willing to listen to trade offers for Anderson.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Anderson may not be with the Broncos next season. He probably will be the starting running back no matter where he plays in 2018 and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 3/11/18 8:17pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is expected to have his $4 million option for 2018 officially picked up in the next day or two, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.
Huddle Up: This was the plan all along for Thomas, and even if the quarterback situation in Denver remains messy, he should at least be a WR3. If the Broncos land a reliable starter, he could easily return to WR2 status.
Carlos Henderson - WRPosted 3/4/18 5:54pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson (hand, wrist) has a chance to serve as the team's No. 3 receiver behind WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Henderson spent the season on the Reserve/Injured list. 'Carlos, unfortunately, broke the hand or the wrist and was not able to go (in 2017). We drafted him in the third round last year. We're excited about him, too,' president of football operations John Elway said.
Huddle Up: Henderson could find himself with immediate fantasy appeal if he is the No. 3 wideout in the Mile High City, especially if the team adds an NFL caliber signal caller in the draft or via free agency.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 2/28/18 1:03pm ET
Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are expected to remain in Denver, according to general manager John Elway. Thomas' $4 million option will be picked up.
Huddle Up: It makes sense that the Broncos would keep arguably their two best offensive players if they want to entice a better quarterback to town. Thomas can be drafted as a WR2 no matter who the quarterback is with Sanders capable of low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 numbers.
Jake Butt - TEPosted 2/24/18 3:15pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) likely will work with the first-team offense during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Butt missed the entire 2017 season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see what role Butt will have in the passing game. He could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in deeper leagues.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/23/18 1:20pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) said his rehab is going well and believes his ankle is at around 95 percent.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Sanders' situation this offseason to see if he will stay with the Broncos or if he will join a new team. He has been a solid receiver over the last few years and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver in 2018.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 2/21/18 12:43pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is expected to be on the trading block this offseason as the Broncos look to add at the position via free agency and/or the draft.
Huddle Up: Siemian was never able to find his groove in 2017. When he was healthy he was prone to turn the ball over much too often. Perhaps a team like the Arizona Cardinals would be willing to part with a late-round pick since Denver's former offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, now serves in the same role in Arizona. Nonetheless, Siemian is not a starting fantasy quarterback.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 2/19/18 3:33pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson could be pursued by the Miami Dolphins again if he were to be released by the Broncos. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and new running backs coach Eric Studesville both coached Anderson in Denver and Miami gave Anderson an offer just two years ago before it was matched by the Broncos.
Huddle Up: It's a potentially sensible move, but Anderson needs to be released first. Kenyan Drake would still have the most potential in Miami's backfield, but Anderson would certainly hurt his fantasy ceiling. This is all conjecture at this point, but stay tuned as free agency approaches.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 2/17/18 8:00pm ET
The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.
Huddle Up: Booker has flashed some potential with limited touches, and his fantasy value would receive a big boost if Anderson ends up elsewhere next season.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/14/18 10:22am ET
Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders could both stay on the roster in an effort to better lure a big-name quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanders, in particular, had been rumored to be traded or released this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Broncos need more money to make a good pitch to someone like Kirk Cousins. If they keep Thomas and Sanders then they'll likely released Aqib Talib and C.J. Anderson. If they do land a top quarterback then the fantasy value of both Thomas and Sanders will naturally increase.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/10/18 9:22am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders could be placed on the trade block this offseason because of his salary and his uncertain durability, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala. Sanders missed four games this season because of an ankle injury and is scheduled to have salary cap hits of around $10.9 million and $12.9 million over the next two seasons.
Huddle Up: Sanders had a disappointing 2017 season with only 555 yards and two touchdowns. He has been a solid receiver since entering the league but may be on the move during the offseason. He can be a starter for most teams in the NFL and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his team.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 2/10/18 9:20am ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has a $1 million option in his contract that would trigger the final two years of the contract if exercised, and the Broncos have until the middle of March to make a decision on the option. The team would take on $3.1 million in dead money if they decide to decline the option. Thomas would count around $12 million and $17.5 million in the cap space over the next two seasons if the option is picked up.
Huddle Up: Thomas saw a small drop in his stats this season but still finished with 83 receptions, 949 yards and five touchdowns. Thomas should be a starting receiver for a team in 2018 and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Von Miller - LBPosted 1/31/18 10:34am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would be welcomed by Denver Broncos LB Von Miller. 'Kirk could take us over the edge,' Miller said, 'but that's the National Football League. There are a lot of teams that need Kirk.'
Huddle Up: Miller is right, and some of those teams have a lot more salary cap space than the Broncos, although Cousins has said he wants to be on a winning team. Even if Cousins joins the Cleveland Browns or New York Jets, he will remain a QB1 candidate.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 1/12/18 6:35pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas could be asked to restructure his contract or be cut, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 Sports, because of a provision that allows Denver to void the final two years of his contract if his $4 million option bonus is not picked up by the end of the league year on March 14.
Huddle Up: Thomas failed to reach 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011. Denver's quarterback situation certainly didn't help, but age is not on his side either. If Denver lands a proven quarterback or if Thomas ends up with a better offense, he may have one more big year in him. For now, consider him a WR3 with a safer floor in PPR formats.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/31/17 7:57pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had 83 catches for 949 yards in 2017, finishing with fewer than 90 receptions and less than 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011.
Huddle Up: Thomas should remain with the Broncos in 2018, but unless Denver can figure out its quarterback situation, he will likely underperform again next year.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/29/17 3:57pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 29, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 17 start against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Lynch will make the start, but he is apparently not 100 percent and his status during the game will be a matter of how much pain he can endure apparently. He is not a recommended fantasy starter even if he were fully healthy.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/28/17 11:34am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Sanders appears to be headed for another missed game. If he and Cody Latimer both can't play again then Bennie Fowler should start opposite Demaryius Thomas. In that case, Thomas would be the only startable Denver receiver.
