  Broncos | Royce Freeman could start    Sun Jul 15, 12:33 AM

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will be given every opportunity to earn the starting job, according to retired SS Steve Atwater.

Footballguys view: Devontae Booker has fans in the Denver organization, but he hasn't done anything to show that he's a favorite to take over this backfield after the departure of CJ Anderson. Booker will still play a role in the passing game in any event, but Freeman should be better between the tackles, and he's at least adequate as a blocker and receiver. Freeman's weak competition could equal upside as a mid-round pick.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas still confident    Sat Jul 7, 12:03 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he needs to clean up some drops but still views himself as a No. 1 receiver.

Footballguys view: Last season, Thomas had his streak of 1,000 yard seasons snapped because the quarterbacks throwing him the ball were beyond bad. While he's not the receiver he used to be, we think the addition of Case Keenum will be a big help. That won't vault him back to WR1 status, but could put him in a low-end WR2/high end WR3 category.

  Broncos | Bradley Roby to enter starting lineup    Thu Jul 5, 03:38 PM

Denver Broncos CB Bradley Roby will be the starting cornerback opposite CB Chris Harris Jr. this season.

Footballguys view: He's going to play on almost every snap, so we like his upside, but we wouldn't go out of our way to snag him if your IDP league combines all defensive backs. There are much better safety options, so he isn't really worth the roster spot. If your league requires cornerbacks though, he's worth a look after the big dogs are gone and the draft is in the mid-to-late rounds.

  Broncos | Royce Freeman signing contract    Thu Jul 5, 02:04 PM

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman is signing his four-year rookie deal Thursday, July 5, according to a source. The deal includes a $997,020 signing bonus, but other financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: There's a path for Freeman to win this job with only Devontae Booker ahead of him. Freeman works well in space, but also can fight for the hard yards, and catch the ball. Booker has not shown the consistency to assume he can hold onto the job, or stay healthy. So while Freeman might start as Robin to Booker's Batman, he might find himself driving the Batmobile sooner than later. His ADP is tracking as a solid RB3 right now but we think that needle moves towards "ascending" by year's end.

  Broncos | Tom Heckert Jr. leaves team    Mon Jul 2, 09:41 PM

Denver Broncos senior personnel advisor Tom Heckert Jr. announced Monday July 2, that he will step away from his current role in order to focus on his health.

Footballguys view: The former Eagles and Browns general manager was the director of pro personnel for the Broncos 2015 Super Bowl champion. Gary Kubiak will be the lone senior personnel advisor with Heckert's departure.

  Broncos | Bradley Chubb a perfect fit    Sun Jul 1, 09:16 PM

Denver Broncos DE Bradley Chubb's ability to stop the run on the strong side makes him the perfect 'tag team' partner to LB Von Miller, according to retired DL DeMarcus Ware.

  Broncos | Troy Fumagalli on track for training camp    Thu Jun 28, 09:42 PM

Denver Broncos TE Troy Fumagalli (hernia) said he will '100 percent, no question' be ready to participate in training camp after having to miss all 13 organized team activity and minicamp workouts.

Footballguys view: Fumagalli is a talented rookie tight end who impresses on the football field because of his strong hands and run-after-the-catch ability. He's not a blocker, but Fumagalli can be dangerous as a seam ripper down the middle of the field. Fumagalli will compete for a spot on the depth chart behind Jeff Heuerman and Jake Butt.

  Broncos | Royce Freeman has an opening    Mon Jun 25, 11:00 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has the opportunity to be the team's lead back, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Freeman is going to compete in training camp with Devontae Booker for the starting job. The Broncos are going to be a run-heavy team, and fantasy owners need to watch this situation closely to see if one back emerges as the bellcow. Booker has done little to impress (3.6 YPC average) in two years, and Freeman could have RB2 value for fantasy owners if he's the lead back for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Big role for Royce Freeman?     Sat Jun 23, 10:28 PM

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has a chance to do 'Kareem Hunt type things,' according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Brooks called Freeman one of his favorite sleepers in the 2018 NFL draft. Freeman is going to have a chance to lead the way on the ground for the Broncos. They've been saying for months that they are going to be a run-heavy team...and it fits their strength (playing defense). Freeman will have to prove himself in pass protection and show better than incumbent Devontae Booker in training camp. There's some RB2 value for fantasy owners in Denver's backfield.

  Broncos | Bradley Chubb contract details    Fri Jun 22, 06:53 PM

  Broncos | DaeSean Hamilton earning trust    Thu Jun 21, 11:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton can be counted on to run the proper routes, according to QB Case Keenum. 'To have a receiver that you can count on to be in the right place at the right time, that's always a huge plus,' Keenum said.

Footballguys view: Hamilton's route-running was among the best in this year's draft class, which should get Hamilton on the field early in his career. This could be the last year for Emmanuel Sanders in Denver, with Hamilton poised to take his spot and Courtland Sutton projecting as the Demaryius Thomas replacement stylistically.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton winning over QB    Thu Jun 21, 11:22 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is a 'friendly target,' according to QB Case Keenum. 'I like throwing him the football,' Keenum said.

Footballguys view: Keenum is surely referring to Sutton's huge frame and strength in the air. He should get work immediately as a third receiver with Emmanuel Sanders moving inside to the slot on passing downs. He's not necessarily a late-round target, but if either of Sanders or Demaryius Thomas miss time, he'll be on our waiver wire priority list.

  Broncos | Menelik Watson may be on bubble    Wed Jun 20, 05:06 PM

Denver Broncos OT Menelik Watson could be on the roster bubble during training camp if the team believes OT Elijah Wilkinson or OT Cyrus Kouandjio can handle the swing tackle job.

Footballguys view: The Broncos had a 'hole' at right tackle last year according to GM John Elway...and that was Watson. He failed to stay healthy (yet again) and did not impress during his first season with the Broncos. He's competing for the right guard job with Kouandjio or Jared Veldheer lining up at right tackle in 2018.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch staying ready    Sun Jun 17, 10:16 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch said he is 'very comfortable' running offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's playbook and remains confident that he can lead the offense if called upon.

Footballguys view: Lynch has looked better this offseason and may have finally figured out what it takes to be a pro. A first-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Lynch has failed to beat out Trevor Siemian for two years. Now, Siemian is gone to the Vikings and Lynch now has no shot of being the starter so long as free agent addition Case Keenum is healthy. The team hasn't given up on Lynch just yet...and they may be the only people that have faith in Lynch to 'get it' and play up to his potential.

  Broncos | Big role for DaeSean Hamilton?    Sat Jun 16, 11:43 PM

Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton should 'play plenty' this season, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Hamilton has been an impressive rookie during Broncos OTAs and mandatory minicamp. When he wasn't burning Bradley Roby on the outside, Hamilton was seen making plays over the middle as a slot receiver. He's not the fastest or the quickest, but Hamilton knows how to manipulate coverage, set up defenders and get open. The rookie could be the eventual replacement for Emmanuel Sanders (2019?) on the outside. This year, he might be involved as a slot receiver but on a run-first team Hamilton is unlikely to do much for fantasy owners in redraft leagues. We LOVE him in dynasty formats though (and fellow Broncos rookie WR Courtland Sutton too!).

  Broncos | Denver adds three to roster    Fri Jun 15, 08:30 PM

Free-agent DT Caushaud Lyons (Vikings) and DE Antonio Simmons (Buccaneers) and undrafted free-agent LB Bo Bower (Iowa) signed with the Denver Broncos Friday, June 15. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

  Broncos | Jake Butt impressing coach    Thu Jun 14, 10:35 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) is 'obviously a playmaker,' according to head coach Vance Joseph, and Joseph said he is 'very excited' with Butt's progress.

Footballguys view: Butt is your classic 'Y' tight end with an all-purpose skill set. He missed all of his rookie season in 2017 while recovering from a knee injury suffered in Michigan's bowl game. The former Wolverine has a dash of Kyle Rudolph to his game, which is potentially great news for QB Case Keenum. We'll monitor Butt in dynasty leagues.

  Broncos | Jordan Taylor likely to go on PUP list    Thu Jun 14, 02:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Taylor (hip) is expected to begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Taylor was well behind Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and second rounder Courtland Sutton, and fighting for a roster spot Isaiah McKenzie, Jordan Leslie and others. This setback will make it much harder to stick.

  Broncos | Carlos Henderson may not make team    Wed Jun 13, 03:17 PM

Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson (hamstring) is at risk of missing the final roster if he can't get back on the field, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Henderson, a third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, missed his rookie season due to a thumb injury. He looked lost on the field before that injury, but the team was anxious to see what he could do this year as potentially their slot WR. Henderson now has a hamstring injury that is keeping him off the field. He's already fifth (at best) on the depth chart and will need a major turnaround to make the 53-man roster.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas sidelined by toe    Wed Jun 13, 03:13 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (toe) has not been allowed to participate in minicamp because of a sore toe. He wanted to practice Wednesday, June 13, but head coach Vance Joseph did not permit him to do so. Thomas will not practice Thursday, June 14, either.

Footballguys view: All reports indicate this is not a big issue. The Broncos want to be cautious with Thomas and not rush him out there for a June minicamp. Thomas is a seasoned pro who almost had 1,000 yards receiving last year even though the Broncos had a clown car at quarterback with guys like Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. With Case Keenum entrenched as the starter, we could see Thomas get back to his 1,000-yard ways (with perhaps 90 catches). He's a WR2 for fantasy owners in 2018.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware hired to coaching staff    Wed Jun 13, 11:36 AM

Retired NFL DE/OLB DeMarcus Ware was hired Wednesday, June 13, by the Denver Broncos as a pass-rush consultant on a part-time basis, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.

Footballguys view: It will be great for the Broncos to have a resource like Ware around. In this role as a consultant, Ware can dip his toe into the coaching waters without having to sacrifice a ton of time. The Broncos won a Super Bowl (50) with Ware as a defensive leader, and guys like Von Miller and Bradley Chubb should greatly benefit from his presence/guidance.

  Broncos | Two Broncos will be ready for camp    Tue Jun 12, 03:15 PM

Denver Broncos OG Ronald Leary (back) and OT Jared Veldheer (ankle) will be good to go for training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Leary is their starting left guard and Veldheer should be their starting right tackle. Neither one has participated this offseason, and that's a bit of a concern for a team who wants to run the ball and needs their offensive line to gel.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has minor foot issue    Tue Jun 12, 03:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) tweaked his foot at minicamp Tuesday, June 12.

Footballguys view: Thomas has been looking good on the practice field up to this point. Nagging injuries have always been something Thomas has dealt with and played through...mostly at a high level. The team will take it easy on him with the plan to have him ready full speed at the start of training camp.

  Broncos | Shane Ray will have bone fusion    Tue Jun 12, 03:03 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray's (wrist) surgery on his left wrist will include bone fusion.

Footballguys view: Ray may miss the first month of the regular season, even though he's hoping to be ready for Week 1. A first-round pick in 2015, Ray's career has been set back by injury. This wrist problem required three surgeries last year and seriously impacted his game in 2017. Without Ray, 2018 first-round pick Bradley Chubb will get plenty of time to showcase his pass-rushing ability.

  Broncos | De'Angelo Henderson still limited    Tue Jun 12, 05:29 AM

  Broncos | Shane Ray will have surgery Thursday    Mon Jun 11, 07:09 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) will undergo surgery on his left wrist Thursday, June 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Ray's wrist injury required three surgeries last year and he struggled playing through the injury. This year, we'll see 2018 first-round pick Bradley Chubb likely start on the outside opposite Von Miller. The hope is that Ray only misses two or three regular season games, but he could return sooner than expected.

  Broncos | DaeSean Hamilton flashing potential     Sat Jun 9, 12:32 AM

Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton could be a 'diamond in the rough,' according to WR Emmanuel Sanders.

Footballguys view: Hamilton doesn't lose much speed when making his breaks, and he's a refined route runner. The Penn State product will be groomed to eventually (2019?) replace Emmanuel Sanders as the team's no.2 wide receiver. He could get some work in three- and four-wide receiver packages as a rookie in 2018.

  Broncos | More on Shane Ray    Thu Jun 7, 08:08 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) will have his fourth surgery on his left wrist in less than a year. He'll have a clean-up surgery related to the previous one and will likely miss the start of camp.

Footballguys view: At points this offseason, there has been talk in Denver about rookie Bradley Chubb replacing Ray as the big time pass rusher for the Broncos across from Von Miller. This makes that argument null, as this will cost Ray at least some of his 2018. Denver declined Ray's 2019 option, so he is a free agent after this year.

  Broncos | Shane Ray to undergo second surgery    Wed Jun 6, 08:15 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) will need another surgery on his wrist.

Footballguys view: Ray can return sometime in the first month of the regular season if all goes well. It's a blow to a pass rusher in the final year of his rookie contract. A first-round pick in 2015 for the Broncos, the team declined his fifth-year option largely due to the injuries that have held him back.

  Broncos | De'Angelo Henderson remains sidelined    Wed Jun 6, 06:22 PM

Denver Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson (obqlique) was once again held out of organized team activities Wednesday, June 6, due to a slight oblique strain.

Footballguys view: Henderson has been getting some first-team reps for the Broncos in OTAs a week or so ago. He's a compact back who can make defenders miss in the open field. Henderson was inactive for most of his rookie season in 2017, but this year he's vying for a larger role. Rookie Royce Freeman and third-year pro Devontae Booker are likely the lead backs for the Broncos in 2018.

  Broncos | Shane Ray may have surgery    Tue Jun 5, 03:11 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) is seeking a second opinion on his injured left wrist, but he could need surgery, according to a source. The procedure would not end his season, however.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Broncos pass rusher here. Ray struggled through an injury-riddled season in 2017 and his weight dropped to around 220 pounds. He's gained the weight back and measured in around 245 pounds for OTAs. The wrist soreness he's experienced is not a good sign and he may require a fourth surgery (he had three last year) on the injury.

  Broncos | Shane Ray back for camp?    Mon Jun 4, 04:09 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray's (wrist) goal is to be ready for training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

  Broncos | Von Miller misses OTAs    Mon Jun 4, 03:54 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 4.

  Broncos | De'Angelo Henderson misses practice    Mon Jun 4, 02:49 PM

Denver Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson (oblique) did not participate in organized team activities Monday, June 4, because of a slight oblique strain.

Footballguys view: Henderson was getting some first-team reps in OTAs. A compact back (5'7" 208 pounds), Henderson didn't do much as a rookie as he was inactive for most of the season. Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker are likely the top two backs to compete for the starting job in 2018 but Henderson is a bit of a sleeper to keep an eye on in the preseason.

  Broncos | Shane Ray to be limited    Mon Jun 4, 02:48 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) will be held out of some workouts moving forward because he is dealing with soreness in his wrist. Ray underwent three surgeries on the wrist last season.

Footballguys view: This is the same wrist that slowed down Ray in 2017. He has gained weight back after losing pounds due to this injury. Ray was down around 220 pounds last year but is checking in around 245 pounds during OTAs. The Broncos didn't pick up his fifth-year option, so Ray is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019. If he has a big year, Ray is going to get paid. The Broncos selected Bradley Chubb with the 5th overall pick to start opposite Von Miller. Ray has talent but is clearly not in the long-term plans for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders absent    Mon Jun 4, 02:03 PM

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders were not present for organized team activities Monday, June 4.

Footballguys view: According to head coach Vance Joseph, both Thomas and Sanders had personal matters to attend to. The Broncos drafted two WRs this year that dynasty owners should be excited about. Both Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton have the makings of solid NFL players who could perhaps have star potential in the future. Thomas and Sanders are the top two wideouts for now, but Sutton and Hamilton are clearly being groomed to take over (perhaps in 2019?).

  Broncos | Troy Fumagalli unable to take part in OTAs    Sun Jun 3, 02:47 PM

Denver Broncos TE Troy Fumagalli (hernia) was unable to participate in OTAs after undergoing surgery last month for a sports hernia.

Footballguys view: Fumagalli has vacuum hands and can create mismatches over the middle of the field due to his size/speed combination. We'll see how he fits into what the Broncos want to do on offense this year. Jake Butt should be their lead tight end, but veteran Jeff Heuerman is there too and his presence complicates things. Heuerman thinks he's the lead tight end because of his seniority (Butt a second-year pro, Fumagalli a rookie) but that is far from a sure thing. Only dynasty owners should be monitoring this situation.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch improving    Sat Jun 2, 11:17 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has been the best quarterback on the roster at making 'smart decisions' with the ball during OTAs, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.

Footballguys view: Lynch has looked better than ever before...in practice...with no pads on. The team (read; John Elway) may still believe in Lynch, but the 2016 first-round pick has failed to win the starting job in two years. This season, Lynch is no way in contention for the top spot. He's not relaxing per head coach Vance Joseph, but Lynch has always flashed with no/little pressure. Put him in pads when the tackling is live and then we'll see what kind of improvement he's really made.

  Broncos | Case Keenum the unquestioned starter    Sat Jun 2, 10:08 PM

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has been taking all of the first-team reps during OTAs, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said the exclusive work is paying dividends.

Footballguys view: The team is settled entering the 2018 season because 'The Decision' of Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian was a huge distraction last year...and it failed miserably. Siemian was traded to the Vikings, while Lynch was told he can compete with Chad Kelly for the no.2 job this year. According to Broncos players, Keenum has already taken charge of the huddle and the team seems to be responding positively. We'll see if they keep up this momentum in training camp and the preseason.

  Broncos | Bradley Roby back at practice    Wed May 30, 01:53 PM

Denver Broncos CB Bradley Roby (illness) returned to organized team activities Wednesday, May 30, after missing practice Tuesday, May 29.

Footballguys view: Roby is taking over for Aqib Talib (Rams) in 2018, and the team needs him to come through with a big season. Those shoes are huge to fill, but Roby is in the final year of his rookie contract and has a ton to play for himself. The Broncos pass rush should be improved this year with a healthy Shane Ray and top-5 pick OLB Bradley Chubb. That should help the back end of the defense (and Roby) tremendously.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay could return punts    Fri May 25, 11:34 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is seeing time as a punt returner during OTAs.

Footballguys view: The Broncos picked up Lindsay as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado this year. He's small (185 pounds) but tough, quick and plays with a lot of heart. The Broncos could keep him on the roster as a change-of-pace back and return man in 2018.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly may be No. 2 QB    Fri May 25, 08:31 PM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly will compete with QB Paxton Lynch for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, according to general manager John Elway. Kelly and Lynch has been splitting snaps evenly with the second-team offense during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Somebody get our guy Cecil Lammey smelling salts, because he probably about fainted hearing the Broncos might get a little outlaw country under center this year. Kelly has all the tools you might want, but injury concerns as well as attitude and off field issues killed his value in the 2017 NFL Draft. But if he has his head on straight, he could end up being the long term answer for the Broncos at quarterback.

The Denver Broncos signed third-round CB Isaac Yiadom to a four-year contract worth $3.687 million - including a signing bonus of $761,516 - on Friday, May 25, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Yiadom is a smart player who always finds himself around the ball. He's a physical corner who is going to learn behind solid pros like Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby.

  Broncos | Jake Butt looking sharp    Thu May 24, 10:22 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) said his surgically repaired knee 'feels great' following organized team activities Thursday, May 24, and QB Case Keenum said he couldn't tell Butt was recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Butt has Kyle Rudolph-like ability, but it may take some time for him to play up to his potential after missing his rookie season in 2017. He's your classic 'Y' tight end, an all-purpose player who can contribute as a blocker and receiver. With Case Keenum's efficiency in the red zone, Butt could be in for a few touchdowns in 2018.
