  Broncos | Jake Butt on track for camp    Sat Jun 22, 04:10 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) said he will be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Butt will have to stand out to make the team now that they took Noah Fant in the first round and also have Troy Fumagalli and Jeff Heuerman on the roster.

  Broncos | Royce Freeman working with starters    Fri Jun 21, 09:21 PM

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has taken snaps with the first-team offense during spring practices with RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) still rehabbing.

Footballguys view: Freeman struggled in the Broncos running game last year but should be a better fit in the Shanahan zone running that new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello will implement. While Phillip Lindsay has been recovering from a wrist injury, Freeman has had a chance to impress the new regime and earn a larger role than the one he had last year. We'll see if he can carry over the momentum to training camp.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus welcomes competition    Fri Jun 21, 12:16 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus says he is comfortable with free-agent PK Taylor Bertolet receiving an invitation to training camp. 'I've had another kicker in camp with me every other year,' McManus said recently. 'It's nothing that I'm not used to and it's always good to have someone competing against you. And it's not just (Bertolet). There are 31 other jobs out there and a bunch of others kicking as well.'

  Broncos | Ron Leary good to go for camp    Thu Jun 6, 02:32 PM

Denver Broncos OG Ronald Leary (Achilles' recently began to take reps with the first-team offense in the team-period drills during organized team activities and has been cleared to practice fully during training camp.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay on track for camp    Wed Jun 5, 05:58 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Lindsay should be ready for the start of camp, but don't be surprised if the Broncos ease him back into action. They're playing in the Hall of Fame Game and have five preseason games this year. There's no need to rush the 2018 Pro Bowl running back. Royce Freeman has looked outstanding in OTAs and mandatory minicamp. We should see Freeman cut into Lindsay's touches a bit this season.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders ahead of schedule    Tue Jun 4, 05:58 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) could return sooner than people think, according to head coach Vic Fangio on Tuesday, June 4. Fangio said his prediction wasn't based on any medical update.

Footballguys view: Sanders played just the first 12 games of the 2018 season before being placed on injured reserve. He's been seen at Broncos OTAs running in a straight line but has yet to make cuts at full speed. At this point, it seems like Sanders should be good for the start of the regular season.

  Broncos | Tim Patrick ready for next step    Sun Jun 2, 09:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick said he is playing with more confidence than he was last year. 'Going into this season, now I know I can play,' Patrick said 'This year, I'm going to take over.'

Footballguys view: Patrick has a fierce mindset on the football field. He's got a great size/speed combination and is a sleeper we've been hanging onto in deep dynasty formats. He's third or fourth on the Broncos depth chart right now, and we're excited to see if he can earn an opportunity for more snaps/targets in 2019.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay not fully recovered    Sun Jun 2, 08:35 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) has been able to participate in individual drills during OTAs but has not yet been cleared to catch passes.

Footballguys view: This is an important situation for Fantasy GMs to monitor. Lindsay had surgery in late December to repair his wrist and has been working through a long recovery. He has not caught passes or taken handoffs in practice due to the wrist. He's still wearing a brace, but the hope is Lindsay will be ready some time early in training camp. Due to their appearance in the Hall of Fame Game, the Broncos start training camp in mid-July.

  Broncos | Jake Butt starting drills    Sun Jun 2, 08:31 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) has begun taking part in individual drills during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Butt has worked back from three major knee injuries during his football career. We know he has talent but he's so oft-injured we don't get to see him for long. If healthy, Butt is arguably the best all-around tight end on the Broncos roster. The team did select Noah Fant in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft, so Butt would work into some form of TEBC if healthy.

  Broncos | More on Chris Harris' deal    Wed May 29, 09:58 AM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. will have a $9.8 million base salary with a $650,000 workout bonus and a $600,000 roster bonus. A $1 million option was already paid, which makes the deal worth $12.05 million.

  Broncos | Chris Harris Jr. reaches agreement on contract    Tue May 28, 07:53 PM

Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. agreed to a one-year contract adjustment Tuesday, May 28, for the 2019 campaign. It will see him make $12.05 million this coming season instead of his previously scheduled $8.9 million.

Footballguys view: Harris is one of the best cornerbacks in the game today. He did get hurt last year and missed five games. Harris did return and play in the Pro Bowl back in January (where he had an interception), so he's good to go now. He's got to get up to speed in the new Vic Fangio defense but that shouldn't take the veteran too long.

  Broncos | Chris Harris Jr. moves closer to deal    Mon May 27, 02:46 AM

The representatives for Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. and general manager John Elway continued to talk over the Memorial Day holiday weekend about a contract adjustment for Harris in 2019. The two sides have been moving closer to an agreement, a source said Sunday, May 26.

Footballguys view: It's been a couple of weeks that these two parties have been working on a deal. Harris is likely to get a pay raise this year, a much-deserved one, but that's it. The Broncos will let him hit the open market in 2020. If he has a great year in 2019, then Harris will break the bank. If his play declines during his age-30 season, then he might take a discounted deal...perhaps to stay with the Broncos.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton honing his craft    Fri May 24, 09:54 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton said he has spent the offseason working with retired WR Anquan Boldin to improve his route-running and with trainer Tony Villani to boost his speed.

Footballguys view: Sutton got a big opportunity last year, but frankly looked like a rookie in over his head at times. He'll be a very important player to monitor this summer for growth with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator. DaeSean Hamilton could end up being the better pick in PPR leagues if Sutton doesn't take a big step forward.

  Broncos | More on Noah Fant's deal    Fri May 24, 11:35 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant's four-year deal is worth a fully guaranteed $12,590,724.

Footballguys view: Fant is a rookie tight end in a great situation. He's in a TE-friendly offense under new Broncos OC Rich Scangarello (a Shanahan/Kubiak disciple) and with QB Joe Flacco who is known for targeting his tight ends early and often. Jeff Heuerman is no threat to Fant as a receiver, but the Broncos should have some form of TEBC...or just run 2-TE sets in 2019. We see Fant as an interesting TE2 with upside in his rookie season.

  Broncos | Noah Fant inks rookie deal    Thu May 23, 03:22 PM

Denver Broncos first-round TE Noah Fant (Iowa) signed a four-year contract that includes a fifth-year team option Thursday, May 23. Exact financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed, but the signing bonus is worth a reported $7.17 million.

Footballguys view: Fant could be one of the top rookie tight ends this year. He's going to be in a Rich Scangarello offense that has roots in the Shanahan/Kubiak offenses of Broncos past. Fant is going to be catching passes from a rejuvenated Joe Flacco...and quarterback known for targeting tight ends early and often. Look at the rookie as a sneaky TE2 with upside in 2019.

  Broncos | Drew Lock working with third team    Wed May 22, 02:25 AM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock continues to work the third team offense in OTAs, according to 9News' Mike Klis. QB Kevin Hogan has been receiving the second-team reps.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are making the rookie earn his spot on the depth chart. Lock has a big arm and can make off-platform throws with ease. He didn't really work from under center during his college career and will have to get used to that in the Rich Scangarello system. Lock could be the future for the Broncos but he is clearly behind Joe Flacco and has yet to beat out Kevin Hogan. We'll likely see Lock climb to No.2 on the depth chart during training camp.

  Broncos | DaeSean Hamilton limited by knee late in 2018    Tue May 21, 03:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton spent much of his offseason training in Florida to increase his weight and improve himself physically after struggling with a knee injury near the end of his rookie season, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. Hamilton added his knee feels 'great' now.

Footballguys view: Hamilton is a great route runner and is looking to make an impact as Denver's no.3 wide receiver. Courtland Sutton should be the leading receiver for the Broncos with Emmanuel Sanders (when healthy) working as a quality no.2 receiver. That doesn't leave much for Hamilton, especially considering TE Noah Fant could catch quite a few passes this season. Continue to monitor or roster Hamilton in dynasty formats while he works for a larger opportunity.

  Broncos | Noah Fant likely to split time    Sun May 19, 02:29 PM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant is a better receiver than blocker but will likely split time during his first season with veteran Jeff Heuerman in the opinion of a veteran beat reporter.

Footballguys view: Heuerman is going to be the primary blocker at the position. Fant is an effort blocker but the Broncos selected him in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft to be a receiving weapon. It's not outlandish to project 50 catches for Fant as a rookie, even splitting time in the Broncos offense. Fant has TE2 appeal with upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Broncos | Chris Harris not talking long term    Sun May 19, 09:46 AM

Denver Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. appears to be negotiating a short-term deal, or even a pay raise, for 2019 with the chance to hit the open market in 2020.

Footballguys view: Harris wants to be the highest paid corner in the league when it comes to average annual salary. The Broncos don't seem too excited to pay him over $15MM per year to get to that mark. Harris can still play at a high level, but the Broncos may only give him a raise this year with the opportunity to get a large payday (not likely with Denver) in 2020.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien has the tools?    Sat May 18, 10:14 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien showed great footwork and anticipation on his throws during rookie minicamp, according to Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan, and Lammey believes Rypien is 'ready to run' the Denver offense.

Footballguys view: Rypien had many more dropbacks from under center than most college quarterbacks. He had 48 passing attempts when working from under center in 2018. By comparison, fellow Broncos rookie QB Drew Lock only had five such attempts last year. Rypien doesn't have the big arm that Lock does, but he looks comfortable at Broncos rookie minicamp and OTAs so far this offseason. We think he's got the ability to be a solid backup and spot starter for years. Lock has a higher ceiling and could be a franchise quarterback, but he's got more to learn than Rypien does when it comes to running a pro-style offense.

  Broncos | Quick impact for Noah Fant?    Sat May 18, 09:44 PM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant could 'emerge as a difference maker in Year 1' for the offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Brooks is not too far off here. Fant, the Broncos 2019 first-round pick, is going to play in a Shanahan/Kubiak offense under new Broncos OC Rich Scangarello. That's one of the more TE-friendly systems in the league. Fant is also going to be catching passes from QB Joe Flacco, and he's known as someone who goes after the TE early and often. Fant is a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019 if he wins the starting job in training camp. Jeff Heuerman and Jake Butt are his competition for that spot.

  Broncos | Noah Fant, Drew Lock OK after crash    Thu May 16, 01:40 PM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant and QB Drew Lock were not injured Wednesday, May 15, when the shuttle vehicle they were riding in at Los Angeles International Airport collided with another vehicle.

Footballguys view: Good news here. The rookie duo is the future for the Broncos. Fant should be a favorite target of QB Joe Flacco this year and Lock waits behind Flacco in 2019.

  Broncos | Drew Lock praises Joe Flacco    Thu May 16, 12:09 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock says fellow QB Joe Flacco has been a positive influence this offseason. 'He's taught me a lot so far,' Lock said. 'He's dealing with trying to win football games, and I'm dealing with trying to learn. We're in the same quarterback room. He's been great to me.'

Footballguys view: Flacco said earlier this week that it was not his job to mentor Lock and that has created a lot of buzz on sports talk shows. It's not a big deal, as Flacco is known as a great teammate -- it just means that Lock has a responsibility (as well as the Broncos coaching staff) to get ready for the pros. Lock is not a threat to Flacco in 2019 and won't see the field as a rookie unless Flacco is banged up.

  Broncos | Jake Butt hoping for training camp    Wed May 15, 10:02 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) will 'hopefully' be ready to return by the start of training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Butt is out there at Broncos OTAs putting in some limited work. He does look good in drills and we'll have to see if he continues along well in his recovery. Butt is a talented 'Y' tight end with all-purpose ability. However, the Broncos selected Noah Fant (Iowa) in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft and he could be the leading receiver at the TE position for Denver this season.

  Broncos | Juwann Winfree under contract    Mon May 13, 08:30 PM

Denver Broncos sixth-round draft choice WR Juwann Winfree signed a four-year contract with the Broncos Monday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Winfree was the Broncos sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Coming out of the University of Colorado, Winfree didn't post the best numbers in his final season -- mainly due to a high-ankle sprain that bothered him in 2018. When healthy, Winfree has enough savvy as a route runner to get open consistently and there are some in the scouting community who swear Winfree's best football is in front of him. In super deep dynasty formats we'll monitor the young wideout.

  Broncos | Two players will be limited    Sun May 12, 04:31 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) and OG Ronald Leary (Achilles) will be limited during organized team activities because of injuries.

Footballguys view: Butt might trouble making the team with Noah Fant now penciled in as the top receiving tight end on the team after Denver spent a first-round pick on him. Jeff Heuerman, Troy Fumagalli, and Temarrick Hemingway will be his main competition for a roster spot. Leary should be eager to get back on the field to benefit from the addition of Mike Munchak as offensive line coach.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay to be limited during OTAs    Sun May 12, 04:28 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) will be a limited participant during organized team activities because of his wrist injury, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Even a limited role in OTAs is a good sign for Lindsay, who had a serious wrist injury at the end of the season. We'll be watching his progress closely with likely improvements in the Broncos offense (especially on the offensive line) fueling a more productive season.

  Broncos | Isaac Yiadom to be limited early    Sun May 12, 04:13 PM

Denver Broncos CB Isaac Yiadom (shoulder) likely will be limited during the first week of organized team activities but should be a full participant later in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Yiadom was a third-round pick last year and projects as a top backup at outside corner. He got some playing time last year because of injuries and then had to play through an injury of his own when he hurt his shoulder in Week 14.

  Broncos | Bryce Callahan should be ready    Sun May 12, 04:11 PM

Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot) will be ready for the start of organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Callahan was a big factor in the Bears defense's tremendous season last year and new head coach Vic Fangio knows how to get the best football from him after coaching him in Chicago. He should help even more now that it appears that Chris Harris won't be traded.

  Broncos | Joe Flacco only QB to work with starters    Sun May 12, 04:08 PM

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco will be the only quarterback that works with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Drew Lock falling to the second round means the Broncos shouldn't feel any pressure to rush him onto the field because of a heavy investment. Flacco should feel more secure and the offense should be suited to his strengths under first-year coordinator Rich Scangarello.

  Broncos | Chris Harris won't be traded    Sun May 12, 10:07 AM

The Denver Broncos will not be trading CB Chris Harris Jr., according to a source. An unidentified team had reportedly expressed interest in acquiring him several hours before the NFL Draft started but later backed off.

Footballguys view: Harris has been severely underpaid, even on his second contract with the team. The "no fly zone" has had a lot of turnaround and needs Harris as the keystone. The team should sign him to a long-term deal this year to keep him happy. If they don't, expect him to leave in free agency next year.

  Broncos | Drew Lock has adjustments ahead    Thu May 9, 12:39 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock has a number of on-field adjustments to make as the team enters its rookie minicamp Friday, May 10. 'Drew obviously has a lot of talent -- he's got a lot of arm talent -- but he's got to work on a lot of different things, too,' general manager John Elway said. 'When you look at what he did in college offensively, he was in the spread and wasn't under center very often. With what we're going to do offensively, he's going to have a lot of work to do.'

Footballguys view: Lock had five passing attempts from under center in 2018, and the Broncos offense under new OC Rich Scangarello is going to ask him to work from under center a lot. That's his first adjustment, but there are more. Lock has a big arm but needs to learn that he doesn't have to put full pepper on short-to-intermediate passes. He also needs to clean up his footwork to help improve his accuracy and Lock needs to also get a more consistent release point. Good thing he's got time as the backup to Joe Flacco in 2019.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders able to move laterally    Tue May 7, 10:06 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) began running in cleats last week and has added lateral movements to his workout in recent days, although he has not attempted to start running an entire route tree as of Tuesday, May 7.'When I do run full speed, I feel good. I wouldn't say we're ahead of schedule, I wouldn't say we're behind schedule. I just feel like we're somewhere in between. We'll see how it goes once I start running routes and how I feel to see if I'm ready to go. .. 'It's been feeling good. Still sore every now and then,' Sanders told the Denver Post.

Footballguys view: Sanders is on the right track for his recovery from Achilles' surgery but we probably won't see him do much in training camp or the preseason. Fantasy GMs need to recognize that second-year WR Courtland Sutton is going to be the Broncos no.1 receiver in 2019. That makes Sanders a valuable no.2 wide receiver in Denver, but it does hurt his fantasy stock. The Broncos won't fill the air with footballs this season, making Sutton more of a fantasy WR2 and Sanders in the WR3 range with upside.

  Broncos | Noah Fant draws lofty comparison    Sat May 4, 10:28 PM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant will be Denver's version of San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle, according to one NFL executive.

Footballguys view: That should get your attention. Kittle went to Iowa, like Fant, but was a fifth-round pick when he came out...not a first-round pick like Fant. In 2018, Kittle had 88 catches for 1,377 receiving yards and five touchdowns - production good for the no.2 fantasy tight end spot last season. Fant won't reach those levels as a rookie (or should we say he's unlikely to do that), but we wouldn't be surprised to see him catch 50 passes for the Broncos as a rookie. Not only is there a Kittle/Fant connection, but there's also a Kittle connection with new Broncos OC Rich Scangarello (he was with the 49ers last year as the quarterback coach).

  Broncos | Jake Butt's days could be numbered    Sat May 4, 02:53 AM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) is unlikely to finish the season with the team, in the opinion of ESPN's Bill Barnwell, who sees TEs Noah Fant and Jeff Heuerman ahead of Butt, blocking his path to playing time.

Footballguys view: We don't think that's the case for Butt...unless he gets hurt again. Butt is a good 'Y' tight end (all purpose) and gives the Broncos valuable depth at the position. Fant, the team's first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft, should be the lead tight end with Heuerman working as a blocker. That's great if everyone stays healthy, but Heuerman has never played a full 16-game season in four years of playing for the Broncos. It would be wise to keep Butt around.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders progressing well    Fri May 3, 03:11 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) was spotted running with cleats for the first time Friday, May 3 - his first such activity since suffering a torn Achilles on Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Sanders should be back on the field sometime around training camp. We should see second-year pro Courtland Sutton take over as the no.1 receiver for the Broncos. If healthy, Sanders makes for a fine no.2 receiver.
