  Broncos | Tony Carter drawing interest    Sat Oct 25, 05:11 AM

Denver Broncos CB Tony Carter has drawn interest on the trade market prior to the Oct. 28 deadline. CBs Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby have taken away some playing time from Carter, leaving him as an odd man out.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman continues to impress    Fri Oct 24, 01:25 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman continues to run with confidence in the absence of RB Montee Ball (groin), and Ball will likely find it hard to win his starting job back when he's healthy. He showed impressive footwork and showed breakaway speed in the team's Week 8 win over the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 23, and he could have easily finished with two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Hillman is established as a strong RB2 going forward. Montee Ball is not going to get a full feature back job when he returns, if he is even the starter.

  Broncos | Wes Welker an afterthought in Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker had just two catches for five yards on two targets in Week 8, and he's averaging just 36 yards per game this year, which is less than half his average (77) in the last seven seasons.

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson handles goal-line duties    Fri Oct 24, 12:14 AM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson had seven carries for 24 yards, including a pair of short touchdown runs, in the team's Week 8 victory Thursday, Oct 23.

Footballguys view: Don't expect this Jerome Bettis-esque stat line to be repeated again. Ronnie Hillman had a few scores called back, and Thompson scored once as the up back lined up in front of Hillman in a goal line set. He is still the back to handcuff to Hillman if you want to secure the top two option in the Denver running game right now.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders scores three TDs    Fri Oct 24, 12:06 AM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had nine catches on nine targets for a team-high 120 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Sanders hadn't hit paydirt through the first five weeks, but we know that was just a temporary condition. He has the same low WR1/high WR2 value that Eric Decker had last year.

  Broncos | John Boyett cut    Thu Oct 23, 03:27 PM

The Denver Broncos released FS John Boyett from their practice squad Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Don't allegedly get drunk, threaten a bartender, punch a cabbie, run from the cops, steal a shovel to hide from cops by covering yourself in mulch then tell the arresting officers to get Elway on the phone. It's not the plot for a South Park episode....that's what Boyett was charged with doing Wednesday.

  Broncos | No new deal for Julius Thomas soon    Thu Oct 23, 11:21 AM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is not expected to have contract extension talks with the team during the season. Thomas will be a free agent this offseason, and the two sides are expected to talk after the season.

Footballguys view: Hopefully this won't be a distraction, but so far it hasn't bothered Thomas that we can see. Expect another top TE1 game this Thursday against the San Diego Chargers and another zero or two added to his contract demands this offseason.

  Broncos | No deal with Demaryius Thomas yet    Thu Oct 23, 11:19 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is not expected to have contract extension talks with the team during the season. Thomas will be a free agent this offseason, and the two sides are expected to talk after the season.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have several players due contracts, including key receiver Thomas. After a sluggish start, Thomas has gone HAM on opposing defenses, with 26 catches for 521 yards and five touchdowns over the last three weeks. It's safe to say he should be in your lineup as a WR1 this week and also safe to say that Denver GM John Elway had best save some of that care dealership money for his top wide receiver. Maybe Peyton Manning can kick in a few Papa Johns pizzas or something. Either way, Demaryius Thomas is looking at a big-money deal for his next contract.

LB Steven Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable, while SS Quinton Carter (hamstring), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), RB Juwan Thompson (knee) and FS T.J.

  Broncos | Montee Ball to miss Week 8    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Ball may be back in the lineup around Week 11....but his role may have drastically changed. Ronnie Hillman has looked good as a starter for the team over the last two weeks. That means Ball may return to the lineup as a reserve back behind Hillman. We'll see if Hillman can maintain his success on the ground....and hang onto the rock while Ball is still out.

  Broncos | Week 11 Return for Montee Ball?    Tue Oct 21, 08:45 PM

In a recent interview on ESPN Denver radio, Mike Klis of the Denver Post speculated that Montee Ball might be able to return by the Week 11 game against the St. Louis Rams. At this time, it seems like Ball is still a couple of weeks away from returning from the groin injury he suffered in the Week 5 game against the Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Ball might return to a much different role. Ronnie Hillman has been productive as the team's starter over the last two weeks. If Hillman continues to produce (and hang onto the rock), we could see Ball as a backup. Right now, Juwan Thompson serves as the primary backup behind Hillman.

  Broncos | Montee Ball out again Tuesday    Tue Oct 21, 05:31 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was not at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: There are some close to the team speculating the Broncos could be targeting a Week 11 return for Ball. That week, the Broncos travel to St. Louis to play the Rams. In the meantime, Ronnie Hillman is the lead back for Denver. We can recommend him as a high upside RB2 the way things have been going over the last two weeks.

  Broncos | Kapri Bibbs was attracting outside interest    Mon Oct 20, 07:06 PM

Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs was attracting interest from other teams on the practice squad, and the Broncos elevated him to their active roster because they didn't want to lose him to another team. The move reflects more on outside interest for Bibbs than it has anything to do with replacing RB Juwan Thompson (knee), who has been dealing with a sore knee. Thompson was able to practice Monday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: Bibbs looked good in the preseason for the Broncos. His greatest asset is balance, and he's proven to be a better receiver than expected. He's going to be the fourth-string back for the Broncos behind Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus not practicing    Mon Oct 20, 04:58 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) did not practice Monday, Oct. 20. The Broncos didn't officially conduct a practice, so McManus' designation is an estimation.

  Broncos | Montee Ball remains out    Mon Oct 20, 04:55 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice again Monday, Oct. 20. The Broncos didn't actually practice, so Ball's designation is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Yep...and when he comes back, he may not be the starter for the Broncos anymore. Ronnie Hillman has done a good job as the team's lead back while Ball has missed time with this groin injury. The team is firing on all cylinders offensively, and their ground game looks better with Hillman than it did with Ball. We'll see how this shakes out when Ball returns to the practice field...perhaps next week.

  Broncos | Monday practice report    Mon Oct 20, 04:37 PM

Ward (knee) practiced in full. The Broncos didn't hold a practice, so the designations are an estimation.

Footballguys view: The note fantasy owners should take here is on Thompson. The last two weeks he has been limited on the first day of practice. This week, he's good to go. Thompson will play as a reserve back behind Ronnie Hillman.

  Broncos | Omar Bolden has concussion    Mon Oct 20, 03:41 PM

Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 7 game and is going through the concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Bolden is a reserve defensive back for the team, and he also plays special teams. We could see Tony Carter activated if Bolden isn't ready to go on Thursday night against the Chargers.

  Broncos | Blowout ends Peyton's night early    Sun Oct 19, 10:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning left the Week 7 game against the San Francisco early in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score. He led Denver to a 42-10 lead early in the fourth quarter before giving way to QB Brock Osweiler. Manning finished the game 22 of 28 for 318 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Footballguys view: Osweiler's appearance is the ultimate rich man/poor man for the Broncos. It's either great (blowout win) or terrible (Manning hurt) when we see the third-year quarterback in the game. Osweiler is only under contract through 2015, while Manning is under contract through 2016. There's a chance we never see Osweiler play meaningful snaps for the Broncos if Manning continues to play at a high level.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning sets NFL record    Sun Oct 19, 09:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw his third touchdown of the first half of Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers to WR Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter. It was the 509th touchdown pass of Manning's career, as he moved into the top spot in NFL history for career touchdown passes.

Footballguys view: Manning is in the greatest ever discussion, and he continues to win fans with his dominant fantasy production.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning ties NFL record    Sun Oct 19, 07:36 PM

The Denver Broncos have declared OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, DL Mitch Unrein, RB Montee Ball, LB Shaquil Barrett, CB Tony Carter inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Latimer won't see the field unless the Broncos suffer injuries at wide receiver. Ball won't be back any time soon.

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson at No. 2 RB    Sat Oct 18, 04:39 PM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is slotted behind RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart, and he is a versatile back. He never rushed for more than 500 yards in a season in college, but he caught the ball well, blocked well and played special teams. He even started a game at linebacker in college.

Footballguys view: Hillman is the guy to own and a low-end RB2 against the Niners. Thompson would be an interesting guy if he had to step in long term but no more than an RB3/flex unless we get a chance to see something.

  Broncos | Montee Ball unlikely to regain role    Sat Oct 18, 04:38 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will have a difficult time regaining the featured-back role this season after his injury. It's beat writer Mike Klis' opinion that Ball never fully recovered from his appendectomy, which could have been a precursor to his groin injury.

Footballguys view: We will see what really happens but it could be that Ball is going to have to earn that job all over again. Ball just didn't look right this season so Klis may be right. Don't give up on him in dynasty, and he's worth the roster spot for redraft unless you're in desperate need of a starter.

  Broncos | Von Miller sheds knee brace    Fri Oct 17, 08:34 AM

Denver Broncos OLB Von Miller (knee) has shed the brace on his knee, which is an indicator he's all the way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Miller has five sacks in six games thus far.

Footballguys view: The Broncos D/ST becomes more attractive with Miller providing a strong pass rush presence opposite free agent pickup Demarcus Ware with opponents most likely playing from behind against Peyton Manning.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas works with Tony Gonzalez    Thu Oct 16, 10:38 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. 'I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year,' Thomas said. 'I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better.'

Footballguys view: The work Thomas did this offseason is certainly helping him dominate this season. He's the top tight end in fantasy football, and Thomas is leading the league with nine touchdown receptions so far. With the way that he's catching touchdowns on such a frequent basis, he could surpass the single-season record (17) for touchdowns by tight ends in a season (Rob Gronkowski, 2011).

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) missed his second straight practice this week Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: LOL. He shouldn't even be on the practice report this week. We know Ball is going to be out for an undetermined amount of time. Ronnie Hillman is a RB2/flex play in Week 7.

The Denver Broncos placed LB Danny Trevathan (knee) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Oct. 14, with a designation to return, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's not a big surprise with this news item. Trevathan should be out about six weeks with this latest fracture to his left leg. He missed most of the season dealing with a small fracture below his left knee cap after suffering the injury in training camp. He can return to play in the Broncos' 14th game Dec. 14 at San Diego.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman propels running game    Mon Oct 13, 02:12 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman ran for 100 yards Sunday, Oct. 12, against the New York Jets while RB Juwan Thompson gained 38 yards on the ground. It was the team's highest single-game rushing total so far this season.

Footballguys view: We got some clarity in the Broncos running back situation this week. Hillman is the main back, and he's not losing many touches to rookie Juwan Thompson. Expect this split to get a bit closer together in the near future. Hillman's 24 carries will be difficult to repeat each week because of his small size.
