  Broncos | Tough matchup for Peyton Manning?    Tue Sep 30, 11:52 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has struggled against current Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles in the past, throwing eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in five meetings with Bowles-coached defenses.

  Broncos | Chase Vaughn waived    Mon Sep 29, 05:59 PM

Denver Broncos LB Chase Vaughn (undisclosed) was placed on no-recall waivers from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 29.


  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas bothered by drops    Thu Sep 25, 01:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has one touchdown catch this year and four dropped passes. Thomas had five dropped passes all of last season. 'I just haven't been consistent, and it bothers me,' Thomas said. 'I think about it, I keep practicing hard, doing the things I need to do. I want to make it right.' Thomas has been bothered by a left foot injury at times, but he hasn't missed any practice time and has played 93 percent of the offensive snaps through three games.

Footballguys view: Thomas has underperformed his draft slot for sure and right now seems to be no better than a WR2, as opposed to the WR1 he was supposed to be. We hope a week off will help the offense get synced up and get Thomas back on track. You might be able to buy low on him with a frustrated owner and that's a recommended move.

  Broncos | Danny Trevathan eyeing Week 5 return    Tue Sep 23, 04:28 PM

Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) is expected to be back at practice with the team next week, according to head coach John Fox. Trevathan said he'd be at around 75 percent for practice next Tuesday after the bye week, and his goal is to play in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Getting Trevathan back will be a boost for the Broncos offense. He's one of the best weak-side linebackers in the game, and Trevathan excels in coverage.

Denver Broncos LB Lerentee McCray (knee) will continue to rehab his sprained right knee, and he is hoping to be cleared to practice next Monday.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders leads in receptions    Tue Sep 23, 04:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders leads the NFL with 25 catches through three weeks, and he's third with 334 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: LOL at the doubters who questioned the role/ability of Sanders. Denver clearly had a vision for Sanders, and he's working out even better than most thought. He doesn't score many touchdowns--maybe five or six this year--but he's quicker and faster in the Eric Decker role. Expect Sanders to set carer highs in both receptions and receiving yards this year.

  Broncos | Montee Ball working on run game     Mon Sep 22, 10:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is averaging 3.4 yards per carry this season, and the team is averaging almost 42 fewer rushing yards per game than a year ago. Ball said Monday, Sept. 22, that the team will focus on fixing the run game heading into the bye week. 'Right now, we need a lot of work on it,' Ball said. 'It starts up front, starts with the tight ends, and with the running backs too. Collectively, we all need to sit down and focus on it, and I believe we will.'

Footballguys view: The ground game is not working for the Broncos. Backup C.J. Anderson has looked better over three weeks than Ball has. The entire ground game struggled in the Week 3 game against Seattle. We'll see Ball get more of a shot to prove himself, but fantasy owners should be holding onto Anderson just in case.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has been inconsistent    Mon Sep 22, 01:02 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas finished with four catches for just 31 yards in the team's Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but QB Peyton Manning targeted him nine times in the game. Thomas dropped a pass and had a big gain taken back by a penalty. He has caught nine passes for 110 yards and a touchdown through three games this year, and he has been very inconsistent so far. 'I really can't tell. It was a fast game,' said Thomas when asked if the Seahawks' coverage led to his decreased numbers. 'I had an opportunity to make plays and didn't. I feel like I had my chances. I have to make my plays. Two plays that I had my hands on the ball, they broke up. But I feel like I have to come down with those.' He continues to say that contract talks haven't been a distraction. Thomas also dealt with foot and ankle issues in Week 3, but he refused to use it as an excuse.

Footballguys view: There's no question that "Bey Bey" is not quite himself. Thomas has been getting peppered with targets, but he's dropping too many and his timing with Peyton Manning just seems off. The Broncos have a bye this week, so perhaps some of these issues can be worked on. We still like Thomas as a WR2 with WR1 upside, but he's no longer the "set it and forget it" WR1 he was entering the season.

  Broncos | Virgil Green will not return    Sun Sep 21, 05:45 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (concussion) was diagnosed with a concussion in the first half of the Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he will not return.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas leaves briefly    Sun Sep 21, 05:13 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) left the Week 3 game in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks due to a foot injury. He has reportedly been dealing with the injury for a while. He limped off, was evaluated by the training staff, and was able to return.

Footballguys view: Thomas doesn't have his normal edge today. Emmanuel Sanders is shouldering most of the load for the Broncos receivers in this one.

The Denver Broncos have declared CB Tony Carter, OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, LB Lerentee McCray, OT Michael Schofield, LB Danny Trevathan, DT Mitch Unrein inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Latimer is only getting farther from the field with the return of Wes Welker.

  Broncos | Wes Welker good to go    Sun Sep 21, 10:01 AM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) had no setbacks in practice this week and will play Sunday, Sept. 11. However, there's no guarantee on number of snaps he'll receive in a crowded offense.

Footballguys view: Welker has low upside in a tough matchup with his effectiveness and number of snaps unknown.

  Broncos | Wes Welker ready to play    Fri Sep 19, 02:37 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has practiced with the team all week and is ready to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He practiced in full all week, and he's listed as probable for Sunday, Sept. 21. 'It's been great,' head coach John Fox said of Welker's work this week. 'He's a veteran guy that attacks preparation, and he's had a great week.' Welker is expected to play, but he may not see a normal number of snaps as he would have if he had practiced more with the team before his suspension.

Footballguys view: Welker is still a low upside play against a very tough Seahawks defense in Seattle on a likely limited snap count.

  Broncos | Wes Welker's health a non-issue    Thu Sep 18, 01:32 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) practiced with the team Wednesday, Sept. 17, which was his first on-field work since Labor Day, and he said he was cleared medically 'about a week or so ago.' "I appreciate their concern, I do,' Welker said. "But at the same time, I feel great. I feel sharp and ready to go.' Head coach John Fox said that Welker's suspension, from a health perspective, may have been a 'blessing in disguise' for Welker.

Footballguys view: We felt that Welker's time off could indeed be helpful for him (and his health) long term. Our own Cecil Lammey has said that the team will definitely use him and have been working to put packages together for him specifically. They won't overwhelm him, Lammey says, but could use him in the red zone quite frequently. This doesn't impact Emmanuel Sanders as he was replacing Eric Decker but might take away a little bit of Julius Thomas' red zone targets. There is some uncertainty here so we are cautious--this first time out he's no more than a WR4 and you should keep your expectations a little low until we see how the Broncos use him.

  Broncos | Wes Welker not committing to Week 3    Wed Sep 17, 05:06 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are being coy when talking about Welker's potential role in Week 3 against the Seahawks. We think he plays, and we think he'll be used on a limited basis. Welker could produce like a "what the heck" flex play with upside if he does play on Sunday.

  Broncos | Wes Welker to return to slot    Wed Sep 17, 04:31 PM

  Broncos | Wes Welker reinstated    Wed Sep 17, 10:46 AM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been reinstated Wednesday, Sept. 17, after a new drug testing agreement was reached.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. Expect the team to take a "less is more" approach with Welker. They should still give him high-value targets when the team is near the red zone, but he may not get double digit targets like he did in 10 of the 13 games he played in 2013. Welker is a threat in the red zone, but we can only recommend him as a "what the heck" flex play in Week 3 against Seattle.

  Broncos | Von Miller, Lerentee McCray expected to play    Mon Sep 15, 06:55 PM

Denver Broncos LBs Von Miller (groin) and Lerentee McCray (knee) are both expected to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. Miller is the starter and has the ability to be a dominant pass-rusher for the Broncos. McCray is his backup and has played well as a reserve strong-side linebacker.

  Broncos | Wes Welker to be reinstated    Mon Sep 15, 05:03 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will officially be reinstated following the agreement of a new drug policy.

Footballguys view: Welker should be ready to go for the Week 3 game against the Seahawks. The team could use a "less is more" approach with Welker going forward. Another concussion in the preseason (his third over the last nine months) should give the team pause when considering him running routes into traffic. Welker's return does not cut into the role for both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. It might take a few red-zone targets away from Julius Thomas.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders reaches century mark    Mon Sep 15, 12:39 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders led the team with eight catches for 108 yards in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.

Footballguys view: Sanders called Denver "wide receiver heaven" for a reason. He's clearly a major part of the passing game, and we don't expect his target total to dip that much upon the return of Wes Welker. Sanders is the replacement for Eric Decker, and he doesn't run the same routes as Welker does...even though he can play the slot if necessary.

  Broncos | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 14, 03:18 PM

The Denver Broncos have declared SS David Bruton, CB Tony Carter, OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, LB Danny Trevathan inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Latimer appeared to have a chance to get early playing time with Wes Welker's suspension, but the team is content to keep him inactive in deference to the veterans. He can be dropped in shallow bench leagues, and maybe more, but be ready to pick him up if there's news of any involvement in the potent Peyton Manning offense.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas vows to fix drops    Sat Sep 13, 10:16 PM

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 expects the 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.'

Footballguys view: Peyton Manning has been known to help his receivers have bounce back weeks. Don't be surprised if Thomas is the #1 overall fantasy receiver this week.

  Broncos | Wes Welker out for Week 2    Sat Sep 13, 04:17 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is not on the 53-man roster Saturday, Sept. 13, and will not play Sunday, Sept. 14, in Week 2.

Footballguys view: We're not surprised by this news. Welker will be back soon enough. When he returns, beat writers like Klis are expecting a "less is more" approach with the veteran receiver. With the emergence of Emmanuel Sanders, Welker is more like a flex play with upside in the new-look Broncos offense.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman expected to be active    Fri Sep 12, 06:04 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (illness) is expected to be active in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: CJ Anderson's role as the backup could be in jeopardy, but he has shown more in limited playing time than Hillman has in multiple opportunities to impress. Anderson is still the Broncos back to own if Montee Ball goes down.

  Broncos | Wes Welker cleared from concussion    Fri Sep 12, 05:54 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol, and he would be able to play in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs if he is cleared by the NFL surrounding a possible new deal on a drug agreement. However, that doesn't mean he'd be active for the game.

Footballguys view: Welker is a low-end flex play if he goes on Sunday. He has a high ceiling but the extent of his use - if he is active - is unknown.

  Broncos | Re-sign Nathan Palmer to practice squad    Thu Sep 11, 12:45 PM

The Denver Broncos re-signed WR Nathan Palmer to their practice squad Thursday, Sept. 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Broncos moved Palmer onto the active roster to take Wes Welker's roster spot, but he gets moved back down to make room for other players. The team could be getting Welker back if the NFL/NFLPA implement the new drug policy and eliminate the suspensions under the old policy.
