Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 6/5/19 2:58pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Lindsay took over the starting job last season and should continue to receive a majority of the touches at running back. He can be considered at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues in 2019.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 6/4/19 2:58pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) could return sooner than people think, according to head coach Vic Fangio on Tuesday, June 4. Fangio said his prediction wasn't based on any medical update. The receiver played just the first 12 games of the 2018 season before being placed on injured reserve.
Huddle Up: Sanders totaled 868 yards and four touchdowns off of 71 catches. The 32-year-old will enter the 2019 campaign atop a depth chart including Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Tim Patrick, and with new QB Joe Flacco. He's a fringe WR2.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 6/2/19 5:35pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) has been able to participate in individual drills during OTAs but has not yet been cleared to catch passes.
Huddle Up: Lindsay is coming off an excellent rookie year, and he should enter the season as Denver's top back. As long as he is 100 percent by the time Week 1 rolls around, he should deliver RB2 production.
Jordan Taylor - WRPosted 5/31/19 11:29pm ET
Minnesota Vikings WR Jordan Taylor is the 'one to watch' for the team's third receiver spot, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Andrew Krammer, who notes Taylor's familiarity with assistant head coach Gary Kubiak, who is helping offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski overhaul the offense.
Huddle Up: There's a void on the Vikings depth chart after Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, and Taylor might be the one to fill it. He has good size and experience under Kubiak, and QB Kirk Cousins recently called him a "diamond in the rough." We're a long way from Week 1, but Taylor is a name to watch as we draw closer to the 2019 opener.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 5/24/19 6:54pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton said he has spent the offseason working with retired WR Anquan Boldin to improve his route-running and with trainer Tony Villani to boost his speed.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Sutton is putting in the work, and while he was a bit of a disappointment after Emmanuel Sanders was injured last season, he still has a chance to emerge as Denver's top receiver. He's a WR4 with upside entering 2019.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 5/20/19 5:36pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum received the first snap during team drills Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Keenum will compete with Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation in drafts, but Haskins likely will have some value in keeper leagues.
Noah Fant - TEPosted 5/19/19 11:29am ET
Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant is a better receiver than blocker but will likely split time during his first season with veteran Jeff Heuerman in the opinion of a veteran beat reporter.
Huddle Up: Even as a rookie, Fant figures to finish as the Broncos' most productive fantasy tight end, but the time split is problematic, making the first-round pick no more than a low-end TE2.
Noah Fant - TEPosted 5/18/19 6:44pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant could 'emerge as a difference maker in Year 1' for the offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Denver has been searching for a tight end for a while, and Fant has the speed and athleticism to create matchup problems. He also a quarterback in Joe Flacco who loves throwing to his tight ends. It could be a recipe for fantasy success, and Fant has a chance to reach TE1 territory sooner rather than later.
Drew Lock - QBPosted 5/16/19 9:09am ET
Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock says fellow QB Joe Flacco has been a positive influence this offseason. 'He's taught me a lot so far,' Lock said. 'He's dealing with trying to win football games, and I'm dealing with trying to learn. We're in the same quarterback room. He's been great to me.'
Huddle Up: Lock gets the hype as the shiny new QB brimming with potential, but aside from injury, expect the veteran Flacco to start all the Broncos' games this season and finish as a QB2 in fantasy.
Drew Lock - QBPosted 5/9/19 9:39am ET
Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock has a number of on-field adjustments to make as the team enters its rookie minicamp Friday, May 10. 'Drew obviously has a lot of talent -- he's got a lot of arm talent -- but he's got to work on a lot of different things, too,' general manager John Elway said. 'When you look at what he did in college offensively, he was in the spread and wasn't under center very often. With what we're going to do offensively, he's going to have a lot of work to do.'
Huddle Up: Elway and the Broncos are smitten with Lock's potential, but he projects as more of a longer-term project and will likely spend the 2019 season backing up veteran Joe Flacco.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 5/7/19 7:06pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) began running in cleats last week and has added lateral movements to his workout in recent days, although he has not attempted to start running an entire route tree as of Tuesday, May 7. 'When I do run full speed, I feel good. I wouldn't say we're ahead of schedule, I wouldn't say we're behind schedule. I just feel like we're somewhere in between. We'll see how it goes once I start running routes and how I feel to see if I'm ready to go. .. 'It's been feeling good. Still sore every now and then,' Sanders told the Denver Post.
Huddle Up: Sanders went on to say new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello's playbook reminds him of Bruce Arians' when the duo worked together in Pittsburgh from 2010-11 at the beginning of the receiver's pro career. It's always difficult to predict how a player will be able to bounce back from the type of injury he suffered, making him something of a risky fantasy WR3 at best entering 2019.
Noah Fant - TEPosted 5/4/19 7:28pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant will be Denver's version of San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle, according to one NFL executive.
Huddle Up: While it is premature to pencil Fant in for elite fantasy production, he does have the speed and athleticism to be a matchup nightmare for defenses. The Broncos need for a playmaker at the position further boosts his stock, and Fant is worth a look as a TE2 in redraft leagues.
Jake Butt - TEPosted 5/3/19 11:53pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) is unlikely to finish the season with the team, in the opinion of ESPN's Bill Barnwell, who sees TEs Noah Fant and Jeff Heuerman ahead of Butt, blocking his path to playing time.
Huddle Up: Knee injuries have ruined Butt's career. Until he proves he can stay on the field he doesn't belong anywhere near fantasy rosters.
Drew Lock - QBPosted 4/28/19 7:25pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock will 'compete for the backup role' and learn from QB Joe Flacco in 2019, according to general manager John Elway.
Huddle Up: Elway confirmed what already seemed obvious. Lock is going to stay on the sidelines for at least a year, and it could be longer if Flacco plays well. Lock is a stash candidate in dynasty leagues at this point.
Drew Lock - QBPosted 4/26/19 4:59pm ET
Missouri QB Drew Lock was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 42nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Lock likely will sit behind Joe Flacco for at least one year, so he can be avoided in standard leagues. He should have some value in keeper leagues since he should be starting in aa few seasons.
Noah Fant - TEPosted 4/25/19 7:26pm ET
Iowa TE Noah Fant was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 20th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have been searching for a weapon at tight end for a while now. Fant's size and athleticism could make him a matchup nightmare in the passing game, especially in the red zone. His production could fluctuate from one week to the next, but his touchdown potential makes him worth a look as a TE2.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 4/17/19 7:48pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is at the team's minicamp, but either doing side field work or no work at all. 'He's still under the medical people's orders. He's fine, but he can't just twist (the wrist) right now,' head coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Lindsay had a few months to get himself back to 100 percent. He came out of nowhere last season as an undrafted rookie to emerge as a must-start fantasy option. The former Colorado State product won't sneak up on anyone this season. Assuming he is fully healthy he will be a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in 2019.
Andy Janovich - RBPosted 4/7/19 9:06am ET
Denver Broncos FB Andy Janovich could see an expanded role in 2019 under new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello. As the quarterbacks coach with the San Francisco 49ers last season, Scangarello comes from an offense which featured FB Kyle Juszczyk on 662 snaps -- 264 more than any other fullback in the league. Janovich, meanwhile, played 239 offensive snaps in Denver in 2018, rushing twice and catching eight passes.
Huddle Up: Janovich still isn't likely to have stand-alone fantasy value himself, but a potential vulture alert for Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman owners.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 4/3/19 11:26pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) might be able to return for organized team activities (OTAs) in May/June, general manager John Elway suggested. However, Lindsay said Wednesday, April 3 that he would not pin an exact date on his comeback. 'For me, I put no time limit on my injury right now,' Lindsay said. 'When I'm ready, I'm going to be ready.'
Huddle Up: Lindsay posted 1,278 combined total yards rushing and receiving with 10 touchdowns in his rookie season of 2018, and he will enter 2019 as a must-start fantasy option. Whether or not he participates in OTAs or not, it sounds like he'll be more than ready for training camp and the preseason.
Jake Butt - TEPosted 3/26/19 8:15am ET
Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) thinks he's about five months away from returning and hopes to be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Butt could be a late-round flyer, but he has torn his ACL three times now. That's something to consider when looking for upside late in drafts.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 3/24/19 9:08am ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is unlikely to be ready for the team's draft-week bonus minicamp as he recovers from wrist surgery, head coach Vic Fangio said Sunday, March 24.
Huddle Up: No real worries at the moment as this has been the planned recovery time all along. As long as Lindsay is cleared to go for most of training camp, he'll remain a RB2 draft consideration.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 3/16/19 5:37pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is one of the players QB Joe Flacco said he is 'excited' to work with in 2019.
Huddle Up: A lot was expected out of Sutton after Emmanuel Sanders went down late last season, but he didn't see a jump in production. He will now have Joe Flacco throwing him the ball, which doesn't exactly move the needle either. Sutton enters 2019 in the WR3/WR4 range.
Jeff Heuerman - TEPosted 3/15/19 10:48am ET
Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman agreed on a two-year deal Friday, March 15, to remain with the team. The deal is worth a maximum of $9 million and includes $2 million in guarantees for 2019.
Huddle Up: Heuerman caught 31-of-48 targets for 281 yards and two TDs last season -- all career highs -- but his campaign ended after 11 games due to broken ribs and bruised lung. If Heuerman can stay healthy (he's played in 37 out of a possible 48 games during three seasons in Denver), he could be a high-end TE2 sleeper given new quarterback Joe Flacco's past success connecting with tight ends.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 3/10/19 9:51am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) tweeted Sunday, March 10, that's he's 'wayyy ahead of schedule' in his recovery from an Achilles tendon tear suffered in December.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have indicated they will pick up Sanders' option for 2019 despite the injury and the fact that the wideout turns 32 this month. And if he does indeed make a strong recovery and doesn't miss any games in 2019, Sanders is a WR2 consideration as he projects to be the No. 1 target for new QB Joe Flacco.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 3/7/19 2:21pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum is receiving trade interest from the Washington Redskins, and both teams are motivated to make the trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Keenum likely would compete with Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job next season. Owners in fantasy leagues probably can avoid the situation since neither quarterback would be a starting option.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 3/7/19 3:00pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum will be acquired by the Washington Redskins in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source. The Redskins will also receive a 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the deal. Keenum has also agreed to restructure his contract. The Broncos will pay $3.5 million of his 2019 salary, while the Redskins will pay the other $3.5 million. He will also receive a $500,000 bonus from the Broncos.
Huddle Up: Keenum likely will compete for the starting quarterback job with Colt McCoy during training camp, but neither quarterback is a strong fantasy option.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 2/27/19 1:42pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum could be traded this offseason, but general manager John Elway prefers to keep Keenum. If Keenum were to stay he would likely need to agree to a pay cut or restructured deal in the $7 million range (plus incentives), according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.
Huddle Up: Keenum is in an awkward position with Joe Flacco expected to start. He struggled mightily in his first year in Denver but has shown starter prowess elsewhere. Nonetheless, Keenum is not on the fantasy radar at this time.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/27/19 1:03pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders' option will be picked up, according to general manager John Elway.
Huddle Up: The Broncos needed Sanders to stay on as a veteran leader for an otherwise young receiving group. There is the grim reality that he may be over the hill in wide receiver years, but he's capable of at least a WR3 campaign.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 2/21/19 9:29am ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum said in a podcast posted Thuesday, Feb. 22, that he was 'shocked' when general manager John Elway called him the previous week to inform him that the team was trading for Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco. As a result, there is now rampant speculation that Keenum will be traded or released, and he said he is preparing for a number of options. 'You know, really, it's really open-ended right now,' Keenum said of his future. 'We don't know what's going to happen, there's still a lot up in the air. This is really fresh. So a lot of these emotions that we're talking about are still kind of going on, still happening. So who knows what's going to be in store? I don't for sure,. God does. But we'll be ready for whatever God has in store for us next.'
Huddle Up: Although he didn't have much around him in Denver by late last season, Keenum disappointed in fantasy and reality. Look for him to be dealt for a low-round draft pick and serve as a backup, most likely providing a veteran option behind a young QB.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 2/14/19 10:36am ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum could likely be obtained in a trade for a fifth-round draft pick, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Thursday, Feb. 14. Keenum could be one of the top backups in the league, according to Motensen, and the Tennessee Titans would be an ideal landing spot.
Huddle Up: Titans starting QB Marcus Mariota hasn't played a full year in any of his four pro seasons so far, and he missed three starts this past season with injuries, so Keenum would certainly project as better option than current backup Blaine Gabbert, who had a 74.9 rating and threw as many interceptions (four) as TD passes while making a trio of starts.
