  Broncos | Nick Vannett talks up blocking    Fri Apr 3, 02:35 PM

Denver Broncos TE Nick Vannett on Friday, April 3, discussed his run blocking on a media conference call. 'I have always thought one of the traits need to have, you have to have some nasty,' Vannett said. 'It's not a cute job. It's not an attractive job. You are not going to get any stats from it. You know what, it's all mentality.'

Footballguys view: Vannett is likely to be the blocking tight end for the Broncos behind pass-catching tight end Noah Fant. He shouldn't be much of a fantasy factor in 2020.

  Broncos | Drew Lock readying for new offense    Fri Apr 3, 12:02 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock is throwing five days a week at a spot near his parents' home in Kansas City, during the coronavirus shutdown and has been studying the team's new offensive playbook while watching recent New York Giants film with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur coming aboard.

Footballguys view: Lock should work well in Shurmur's three-vert system. The offense is going to be more aggressive in 2020, and that's good news for Lock and his top target WR Courtland Sutton.

  Broncos | Nick Vannett deal becomes official    Thu Apr 2, 06:07 PM

Denver Broncos TE Nick Vannett was officially signed to a two-year contract Thursday, April 2. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Vannett is mostly a blocking tight end, but he can do more as a receiver if called upon. He'll serve as a reserve player behind Broncos starting tight end, and primary receiving tight end, Noah Fant.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay extension on back burner    Tue Mar 31, 09:41 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is set to become a restricted free agent in 2021, and while general manager John Elway has yet to completely dismiss the possibility of signing him to a long-term contract, he doesn't appear to be motivated to address the matter anytime soon.'We'll see what happens. ... That's not a guarantee,' Elway said.

Footballguys view: The Broncos made the move to add Melvin Gordon in free agency, thus supplanting Lindsay as the top option in the backfield. Not only did they add Gordon, but they made him the 6th-highest paid RB in the league by paying him $8 million per year. Lindsay is under contract but after back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons many thought the Broncos would re-work the 2018 undrafted free agent's deal. That may not be the case now.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton hard to bring down    Sun Mar 29, 05:34 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton led all receivers with 12 broken tackles on receptions in 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, former Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp tied for second among receivers with nine.

Footballguys view: Sutton is big, fast and physical. He had a breakout season as a sophomore in 2019 with 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. The best is still yet to come with Sutton as he did all that last year while working with three different (Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Drew Lock) quarterbacks last year. Expect him to be a favorite target of Lock with borderline WR1 production for Fantasy GMs.

  Broncos | Jeff Driskel deal gets finalized    Fri Mar 27, 05:36 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel's contract became official Friday, March 27, after being processed by the NFL.

  Broncos | Melvin Gordon motivated    Fri Mar 27, 01:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon said during a conference call Friday, March 27, that he's carrying a chip on his shoulder entering the 2020 season. 'It's huge,' Gordon said. 'A lot of people doubt my talent as a back. ... I'm going to use that as fuel. I know the player I am, I want to show that, and I'm going to show that. I'm going to show everybody I'm better than just average.'

Footballguys view: Gordon is going to be the feature back for the Broncos in 2020. He's got a nose for the end zone, can pick up short-yardage situations and is a good receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs can look to Gordon as a player with RB1 upside.

  Broncos | Melvin Gordon eager for pairing     Fri Mar 27, 12:22 PM

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon on Friday, March 27, said he's looking forward to joining holdover Phillip Lindsay in the Denver backfield. 'He (Lindsay) is a great back,' Gordon said. 'I watched him up close, in person, and these past few days I've been watching film on him as well. ... I think we could be a great one-two punch.'

Footballguys view: Gordon is going to be the bellcow for the Broncos in 2020 and Lindsay will be his backup. New Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur goes with one bellcow back and the reserve back doesn't get many touches. If healthy, Gordon should touch the ball around 300 times this season and has RB1 upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Broncos | Melvin Gordon expected to tote heavy load    Thu Mar 26, 07:48 PM

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon is believed to be in line for a bell-cow role in 2020, according to James Palmer of NFL Network Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: Gordon will be the lead back for the Broncos. They made him the sixth-highest paid running back in the league with an average annual salary of $8 million. Phillip Lindsay will work as a change-of-pace back.

Free-agent TE Nick Vannett (Steelers) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Denver Broncos Saturday, March 21, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Vannett has learned to be a better blocker as a pro. He is big and knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders as a receiver. Vannett will work behind second-year tight end Noah Fant.

Footballguys view: Gordon will now be the lead back with the Broncos. Sure, Phillip Lindsay will get worked in as well but we expect Gordon to lead the team in carries. We'll see if Lindsay can improve as a receiver and fill that Austin Ekeler-like role behind Gordon.

  Broncos | Joe Flacco let go    Thu Mar 19, 12:43 PM

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) on THursday, March 19 was informed that he is being waived with a failed physical designation, per source.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have turned things over to Drew Lock and have no need for Flacco on the roster after signing Jeff Driskel earlier in the week. Flacco was not designated a post-June 1 cut, so the Broncos save $10.05MM in cap space immediately.
