  Broncos | Julius Thomas probable for Monday    Sat Dec 20, 03:15 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) is probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: He's a TE1 for your fantasy team. However, that's on the lower end of the TE1 scale since the Broncos have been running the ball on 54 percent of their offensive plays over the last month.

  Broncos | Saturday injury report    Sat Dec 20, 03:15 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) and OT Paul Cornick (toe) are out for Week 16. RB Juwan Thompson (hip, knee), OT Ryan Clady (thigh), CB Kayvon Webster (shoulder) and RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) are questionable. C Will Montgomery (knee), TE Jacob Tamme (ribs), OT Chris Clark (back) and WR Cody Latimer (concussion) are probable.

Footballguys view: Hillman might play this week, but we think the Broncos hold him out one more week. The Bengals surface is artificial, and the team doesn't want to risk Hillman re-aggravating his injury.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas probable    Sat Dec 20, 03:11 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is probable for Monday night's game with the Cincinnati Bengals after practicing fully Saturday, Dec. 20.

Footballguys view: We like Thomas as a WR1 this week. Yes, the Broncos are a run-heavy team now but Thomas is Peyton Manning's favorite target.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson listed as probable    Sat Dec 20, 03:09 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, and is probable for Monday night's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Anderson was a full participant all week in practice. The Broncos are a run-heavy team now, and Anderson has been averaging over 27 carries per game over the last month. Expect him to put up RB1 numbers in Week 16.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning takes normal snaps    Sat Dec 20, 02:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) took a similar amount of snaps Saturday, Dec. 20, as he has all season, according to head coach John Fox, before being listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Brock Osweiler is unlikely to play in this big game for the Broncos in Week 16. However, in Week 17 we could see Osweiler for about a half against the hapless Oakland Raiders.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning questionable    Sat Dec 20, 01:56 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Yeah, we don't see this as a problem. Manning should have a better day than he's had over the last three weeks, but that's only good for a low-end QB1 for fantasy owners in Week 16.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders sent home    Sat Dec 20, 12:58 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is not participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, because he was sent home with flu-like symptoms.

Footballguys view: Broncos head coach John Fox expects Sanders to make the trip to Cincinnati for Monday Night Football. "Yes I do, but we'll see what happens tomorrow. That's when we leave." Fox said in his Saturday press conference. Sanders is facing a tough Bengals secondary, and we've seen his role reduced in recent weeks as the Broncos have become a run-heavy team. Consider him more of a low-end WR2/flex play in Week 16.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas back to full health?    Fri Dec 19, 02:16 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) looks closer to 100 percent at practice Friday, Dec. 19, than he has at any time since suffering his left ankle injury against the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Thomas isn't quite a top five option, but he's still one of the best of the rest now that he's healthy and Peyton Manning isn't sick.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Hillman isn't all that much help for fantasy owners, and shouldn't be in lineups. C.J.Anderson is an RB1 and we don't expect him to give up enough work for Hillman to be relevant.

Footballguys view: Nobody is worried about Manning, and owners will have him locked into the QB1 spot on their rosters against a Cincinnati Bengals defense which has been inconsistent at best this year.

The Denver Broncos re-signed TE Dominique Jones Thursday, Dec. 18. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning to play two more years?    Thu Dec 18, 08:50 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's contract runs through the 2016 season, and beat writer Mike Klis believes Manning will play out the contract.

Footballguys view: The Broncos can only hope they get a little more time before it's the "Brock Osweiler Show" as the drop off will naturally be significant. It's interesting to note that Osweiler's contract will run out before Manning's. This means Denver could move on after Manning without ever seeing Osweiler play significant snaps. In shorter term news, we see Manning as a solid QB1 during Fantasy Championship Week.

  Broncos | Hopeful Ronnie Hillman returns    Thu Dec 18, 01:00 AM

The Denver Broncos are hopeful RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) will be able to return for the Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22, or for the regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Dec. 28.

Footballguys view: They certainly would like the depth as Juwan Thompson and Jeremy Stewart won't instill oodles of confidence if C.J. Anderson goes down. Not that Hillman has been a Pro Bowler, but he is consistent enough to feel more comfortable with if there is an injury. Anderson, by the way, is a tremendous RB1 start this week.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson's workload to be monitored?    Wed Dec 17, 02:50 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has averaged 27.25 carries in the last four games, and his workload may need to be monitored by the team as the playoffs approach. However, it helps that Anderson started his midseason run with a completely fresh body since not being a featured back since his sophomore year in college. Denver had planned to cut Anderson's carries in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, but QB Peyton Manning falling ill changed the game plan. In the last two weeks, Anderson has 50 carries for 143 yards for a 2.9 yards-per-carry average. Before that, he was averaging 5.4 yards per carry. RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) is hoping to return in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals, which could take some pressure off Anderson.

Footballguys view: Hillman may not return in Week 17, so the Broncos could use a little bit more of Juwan Thompson and Jeremy Stewart. Anderson is the starter and will be the lead back even when Hillman is back. It's wise for the Broncos to monitor his carries as the team has a plan to play deep into the postseason. Anderson is key for that offense if they want to do just that.

  Broncos | Virgil Green continues to play    Tue Dec 16, 05:21 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green continued to lead the team's tight ends in snaps with 50 in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, even with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) back on the field. Thomas played just 29 snaps in his first game back from injury. OT Chris Clark also lined up as an extra tight end for seven snaps in the team's first two possessions. TE Dominique Jones played four snaps at tight end.

Footballguys view: Green leads the team in snaps at the TE position because he is a great blocker, and the Broncos are a run-heavy team.

  Broncos | Broncos balancing offense    Tue Dec 16, 05:20 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (illness, thigh) was 17-for-20 passing for the second straight week in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, but this time he threw for 233 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Broncos have tried to balance out their offense in the last three weeks as Manning has completed 17, 14 and 14 passes respectively in those games. He was also ill against the Chargers, but Denver is adjusting to defenses as they try to take the middle of the field away from No. 18. Manning's 28 completions in Weeks 14 and 15 are his lowest total in consecutive games since 2005, and his 45 completions in the last three games are the lowest three-game stretch of his career.

Footballguys view: There was a larger day in place for Peyton Manning, but his flu-like symptoms altered the game plan. Manning was throwing up into a towel during timeouts, and he required treatment at halftime to even play. The Broncos are more of a run-heavy team now, but there will be matchups where Manning looks a bit like his old self.

  Broncos | Cody Latimer cleared to practice    Mon Dec 15, 04:19 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and will be able to practice this week.

Footballguys view: That's awesome....now we just wish the Broncos would actually use him. Dynasty owners don't lose faith here. Latimer has a ton of talent, and he fits right in with this amazing 2014 rookie WR class. However, in Denver he's buried on the depth chart behind Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker. We'll see Welker likely move on next year, and that could catapult Latimer into the starting lineup outside opposite Thomas (assuming Sanders moves to the slot). That's a great scenario for Latimer, and plenty of reason for dynasty owners to keep him or add him.

Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) is out for the remainder of the season after suffering another left knee injury versus the San Diego Chargers in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Broncos here. Their linebacker corps is already an injury-depleted group. Trevathan is their best linebacker in coverage. Now, they'll have to lean on younger players like Lamin Barrow or Corey Nelson.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning fine for Week 16    Mon Dec 15, 10:00 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh, illness) is not expected to be in danger of missing Week 16. The thigh injury is believed to be related to his illness, and the team isn't concerned.

Footballguys view: Manning suffered from flu-like symptoms on Saturday night, but he played Sunday and was decent. This isn't the same Broncos offense as before, and fantasy owners who relied on Manning to get to the championship game should look for better options in Week 16. Denver is going to be run-heavy the rest of the way this season.
