  Broncos | Make two roster moves    Mon Aug 3, 04:41 PM

Denver Broncos WR Kyle Williams (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 3. WR Corbin Louks was subsequently signed.

Footballguys view: Louks may have a shot at making the practice squad, but that is certainly a longshot. In his first day of camp, Louks showed good quickness after the catch according to our very own Cecil Lammey.

  Broncos | Kyle Williams injured    Sat Aug 1, 02:15 PM

Denver Broncos WR Kyle Williams (Achilles') suffered at least a partially torn Achilles' tendon in practice Saturday, Aug. 1, according to a source. He may be out for the season.

Footballguys view: An Achilles' injury at this point in his career would likely end his playing days.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall making progress    Fri Jul 31, 07:37 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) said his injured foot is around 90% at this point. Marshall has shown improvement since he worked with the rookies Monday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Marshall should be a tackling machine for the Broncos this year so long as he's healthy. He's starting as the team's "Sam" (strong-side inside) linebacker.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas runs routes    Fri Jul 31, 12:23 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas ran routes with teammate WR Emmanuel Sanders Friday, July 31, in practice. Thomas has been eased back into the mix after a contract dispute.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning to rely on run game?    Thu Jul 30, 08:21 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will need to rely on the run game in 2015, according to general manager John Elway Thursday, July 30. 'What I can say, late in my career, that was my best friend, the running game. And I think that running game will be Peyton's best friend also,' said Elway.

Footballguys view: C.J. Anderson has the ability to be among the league's leading rushers. He'll be a centerpiece for the Broncos and help set up the play-action passing game for Manning. Anderson could finish as a top-5 fantasy running back, while Manning should finish as a top-10 fantasy quarterback--even on a more balanced offense.

  Broncos | Virgil Green to be eased in    Thu Jul 30, 08:14 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (hamstring) will be eased in slowly during training camp, as a precaution for the hamstring issues that slowed him down during minicamp.

Footballguys view: Green is one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. The Broncos have a ton of question marks on the offensive line, so having Green up front to help block would be a great benefit.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to come back slowly    Thu Jul 30, 04:48 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will be eased back into the offense this offseason because of his late return to the team. The Broncos want to gauge where Thomas is physically before he's cleared for full contact practices.

Footballguys view: Thomas has missed the entire offseason program as he waited for a new long-term deal from the Broncos. It's the smart move to ease him into action. Thomas should be able to catch 100 passes this year in the Gary Kubiak offense.

  Broncos | Jake Long not an option now    Thu Jul 30, 03:29 PM

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Rams) met with the Denver Broncos Thursday, July 30, but the team will not be signing him at this time.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are updating their emergency list right now. Long has worked out for both the Giants and the Broncos recently, but neither team gave him a contract offer. We'll see if he can latch on with one of these teams (or someone else) during training camp.

  Broncos | Jake Long will visit    Wed Jul 29, 04:49 PM

Free-agent OT Jake Long (Rams) will visit the Denver Broncos Wednesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: There are four spots on the Broncos offensive line that will be different from the lineup at the end of the 2014 season. If added, Long would provide them depth at left tackle. Currently, Denver is slated to start 2015 second-round pick Ty Sambrailo as Peyton Manning's blind-side protector.

  Broncos | Shane Ray ready for camp    Mon Jul 27, 02:29 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (foot) said his foot is 100% and he will be ready to fully participate in training camp.

Footballguys view: Ray has the potential to eventually be one of the best pass-rushers in the league. This season, Ray should work as a part-time player who can rotate in at linebacker to keep Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware fresh.

  Broncos | Derek Wolfe suspended four games    Fri Jul 24, 01:48 PM

Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe was suspended four games by the NFL for testing positive for a performance enhancing drug. Wolfe said he took a medication he didn't know was banned.

Footballguys view: The Broncos were relying on Wolfe to be a starter this year under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Without him for the first month of the season, the Broncos will turn to Malik Jackson and Vance Walker as their starters at defensive end. Wolfe's run-stuffing ability could be missed while he's suspended.

  Broncos | Virgil Green expected to see more targets    Wed Jul 22, 02:47 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green is expected to receive more playing time this season and receive more targets than he has had in the past.

Footballguys view: Green should post career-best numbers this year, but that's an easy prediction since Green only has 23 catches in his four-year career. He's an underrated receiver, but Green is a fantastic blocker. With so many question marks on the offensive line, Green may stay in to block more than those calling him a "sleeper fantasy tight end" would think.

  Broncos | Fewer targets for Emmanuel Sanders?    Mon Jul 20, 10:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had a breakout season and Pro Bowl appearance in 2014, but with a tweaked offense under head coach Gary Kubiak the receiver might see fewer passes thrown his way.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be dialed into this story. Sanders admitted earlier this year that he'll likely see fewer targets and receptions in 2015, but he's aiming to surpass 1,000 receiving yards again. We feel in the Kubiak offense Sanders could post 75 catches for around 1,000 yards with 5-7 touchdowns on the year. Kubiak will utilize the tight end position more in addition to emphasizing the running game more than the team did under John Fox. This change in philosophy will alter the numbers for Sanders.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas catching up    Mon Jul 20, 10:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is signed to his five-year deal, but he missed all of the offseason workouts and organized team activities (OTAs), so it will take a bit of time before he is up to speed.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine things will take that long for Thomas. He'll be there for the opening day of training camp, and we'd guess by two weeks in Thomas will be up to speed. Gary Kubiak has said the wide receivers have the most to learn because of the terminology.

  Broncos | Andre Caldwell in a contract year    Mon Jul 20, 10:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell is in the final year of his contract. He will be battling other receivers for backup spots, but is believed to be at the top of the list for the No. 4 job. He could be especially useful if he works his way into a kickoff return job.

Footballguys view: Caldwell has not impressed when given a larger role with the Broncos. He's already been passed on the depth chart by Cody Latimer, and there's no guarantee that he makes the final roster.

  Broncos | Jordan Norwood making comeback    Mon Jul 20, 10:18 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) appears to be completely healed from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last summer. He did well in organized team activities (OTAs), and was running crisp routes. He is in the mix to serve on punt-return duties.

Footballguys view: Norwood was on track to make the team last year as a reserve receiver and as a return man. He seemed to be back near full strength during offseason workouts, and his play could push a guy like Andre Cadlwell off the roster.

  Broncos | David Porter competing for spot    Mon Jul 20, 10:17 PM

Denver Broncos WR David Porter could be competing for a practice squad spot during training camp and the preseason, but he is not believed to have a shot at a 53-man roster spot.

Footballguys view: Porter caught 74 passes for 954 yards and 10 touchdowns in 51 games while at TCU. He is working to show that he should stick around on the practice squad as a developmental slot receiver.

  Broncos | Jordan Taylor has good hands    Mon Jul 20, 10:16 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Taylor (undisclosed) dealt with an undisclosed injury during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp. However, he caught multiple deep passes during offseason practices. 'He catches everything around him and he's gone up and made a couple plays on some deep balls, which have stood out,' QB Peyton Manning said during minicamp.

Footballguys view: Taylor is an interesting player to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He's tall (6'5") and can win above the rim. During his college career at Rice, Taylor showed the ability to track deep passes over his shoulder. Taylor is a deep target with big-play ability. He could stick around in Denver on the practice squad to further develop his skill set.

  Broncos | Bennie Fowler is a big target    Mon Jul 20, 10:14 PM

Denver Broncos WR Bennie Fowler posted five grabs for 55 yards last preseason, but wound up on the practice squad for the season. He is a big target at 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, and if he uses his frame well in the preseason he could manage to work his way onto the 53-man regular season roster.

Footballguys view: Fowler might make the final roster this year. He can make difficult catches seem routine, and Fowler has good strength after the catch. Fowler is fearless when running routes over the middle, and he was a reliable target in the preseason last year.

  Broncos | Nathan Palmer is longshot for job    Mon Jul 20, 10:11 PM

Denver Broncos WR Nathan Palmer is in the hunt for a spot on the 53-man roster, but he likely needs an outstanding training camp and big play in the preseason to land a job.

Footballguys view: Nathan Palmer has bounced around with the San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins, almost exclusively on the practice squads of each team. He was activated for one game last year, but he has to be considered a longshot to make the final roster.

  Broncos | Kyle Williams getting a look    Mon Jul 20, 10:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Kyle Williams is looking to make an impression on special teams to earn a roster spot in training camp and the preseason. He has averaged 24.0 yards per kickoff return, and 8.1 yards per punt return.

Footballguys view: Williams also has fumbled once every 15.5 opportunities during his career, something he needs to cure if he wants to find a job. Most remember two major blunders by Williams when he was with the 49ers in the 2012 NFC Championship Game.

  Broncos | Solomon Patton has unique skill set    Mon Jul 20, 10:09 PM

Denver Broncos WR Solomon Patton has a unique skill set, and he is likened to former Broncos WR and kickoff return man Trindon Holliday. He is in the mix for a spot on kickoffs and punt returns, but needs to show even more explosiveness to stick around. He could even have spot use on offense, but he needs to take care of the ball better.

Footballguys view: Patton has tremendous speed and quickness. He could make the team as a kick returner and give the team a playmaking receiver for depth.

  Broncos | Isaiah Burse will get chance    Mon Jul 20, 10:08 PM

Denver Broncos WR Isaiah Burse narrowly missed out on a job last season as the punt return man, but he went to the practice squad instead and finished the season there. He needs to show development as a slot receiver in training camp and the preseason, but could be in the mix for a job if things break right.

Footballguys view: Burse has good explosion and change-of-direction ability. As a slot receiver, Burse can be dangerous in the open field. This skill set also helps him impress as a return man.

  Broncos | Coach excited about Cody Latimer    Mon Jul 20, 06:34 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer showed improvement during offseason workouts while working with the starting offense, and head coach Gary Kubiak is excited about Latimer will add to the offense. 'I'm really excited about what he can bring and I know he's a lot better now than when he started,' Kubiak said. 'I'm excited moving forward.'

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should be excited by Latimer, and re-draft owners should consider him a late-round flier in deeper drafts. Latimer didn't do much as a rookie, but incredible natural talent is there. He's a big receiver who can play above the rim, and Latimer makes difficult catches seem routine. Latimer will play on the outside opposite Demaryius Thomas when the team utilizes three-wide receiver sets.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has lofty goal    Fri Jul 17, 07:31 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he wants to break the single-season receiving record this season. Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson set the record in 2012 with 1,964 yards.

Footballguys view: We're not going to say Thomas can't reach that mark, but it is certainly a lofty goal. Under Gary Kubiak, former Texans receiver Andre Johnson caught over 100 passes in five different seasons. We think Thomas could catch around 100 passes this year with double-digit touchdowns to boot.

  Broncos | Will have plan for Von Miller    Fri Jul 17, 03:26 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller is slated to become a free agent next season. His value will supposedly be in the range of $14 million. While it is a whole season away, vice president John Elway said the Broncos will have a plan to sign Miller.

Footballguys view: With Demaryius Thomas signed to a new long-term deal, the team can turn their attention to Miller. He should thrive in the Wade Phillips defense, and the Broncos may slap the franchise tag on him next offseason to give themselves more time to work out a deal that could be $100 million or more.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to play lighter    Fri Jul 17, 01:19 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he plans to play lighter this season, and he's feeling faster than in the past. He also said that his ankle is fully healed after it bothered him the last few games of last season.

Footballguys view: Thomas is going to play about 5-10 pounds lighter than he did last year. It should help his quickness off the line of scrimmage, and we don't think it will impact his ability to win at the point of the catch. He's a WR1 for fantasy owners, and even in a well-balanced Gary Kubiak offense we could see Thomas snaring around 100 catches in 2015.

  Broncos | Hillman no lock on a roster spot    Thu Jul 16, 09:38 PM

Andrew Mason, from DenverBroncos.com, reports that fourth-year running back Ronnie Hillman has to find some footing on the roster. With C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball leading the way, Juwan Thompson providing a power gear and last-year's practice-squad runner, Kapri Bibbs, showing flashes of brilliance in OTAs, he's in the thick of a crowded field and by no means has a lock on a roster spot.

Footballguys view: This year is a make-or-break season for Hillman with the Broncos. He looked good (briefly) starting for the Broncos before getting hurt last year. Hillman may not be higher than fourth on the depth chart at this time. With Bibbs standing out in OTAs and minicamp, Hillman could be on the outside looking in when the final roster is determined.

  Broncos | More on Demaryius Thomas' deal    Thu Jul 16, 11:12 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will receive $22 million in 2015. He will receive an $11 million signing bonus, $6.5 million in roster bonus and a $4.5 million salary, which are all guaranteed. He has a fully guaranteed $13 million salary in 2016. His $8.5 million salary in 2017 is guaranteed against injury, and the full salary becomes guaranteed in the league year. In 2018, he has a a $4 million option, plus an $8.5 million salary. None of this money is guaranteed. He has a $14 million salary in 2019, which isn't guaranteed. There are no incentives or escalators in the contract.

Footballguys view: Most of the guaranteed money comes in the first two years of the contract. It just so happens that Peyton Manning has two years left on his deal--and there's a feeling he could be playing through 2016 so long as he stays healthy. Thomas is a cornerstone player who can help the team now and in the post-Manning era.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas in elite company    Wed Jul 15, 08:21 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is 1-of-3 wide receivers in NFL history with 1,400 yards and 10-plus touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. Marvin Harrison and Jerry Rice are the only other two players to have accomplished the feat.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a special wide receiver--one of the best in the game, and now he's compensated as such. He'll be catching passes from Peyton Manning over the next year or two. After that, Thomas will help the production of whatever quarterback the Broncos have under center.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has been working    Wed Jul 15, 04:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had already been sent the offensive playbook and practice video from organized team activities and minicamp this offseason.

Footballguys view: Thomas will show up at training camp and take a few days to get acclimated to the new offense. We don't believe he'll have any problem getting up to speed. With new long-term contract in hand, Thomas is a sure-fire WR1 for fantasy owners. He's got a current ADP of WR5 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas agrees to deal    Wed Jul 15, 03:40 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal that includes $43.5 million guaranteed, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wow. Things come together quickly at deadlines in the NFL. Dez Bryant got his deal, and just like that--Thomas gets his deal that is close to what his Cowboys counterpart received. The Broncos are focusing on a championship run this year, but Thomas will get to help them in the post-Manning era too. Based on reports out of Denver, it looks like most of Thomas' guaranteed money comes in the first two years of his deal.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas still not close to deal    Wed Jul 15, 01:16 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has not made progress in his contract talks with the Broncos. The Broncos have made four contract offers to Thomas this offseason with the last offer being made over a month ago. The last offer was strong in terms of guaranteed money but did not have the average salary per season Thomas is looking for. That offer to Thomas remains on the table.

Footballguys view: Stay tuned here. The deadline for franchise-tagged players is at 4pm ET.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas an elite receiver    Tue Jul 14, 07:45 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is second in the NFL with 28 100-yard receiving games in the regular season and postseason combined since 2011. He had 10 100-yard games in 2014, with seven coming in consecutive weeks. Thomas' 226 yards in a win over the Arizona Cardinals last year set the single-game franchise record, and his 1,619 receiving yards set a single-season franchise mark. The last three years with QB Peyton Manning at quarterback for Denver, Thomas has had three straight years with at least 92 catches, 1,430 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. He's the third player in league history with three straight seasons of at least 1,400 yards and at least 10 scores, joining Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison.

Footballguys view: Numbers don't lie (in this instance), Thomas is an elite receiver. However, what is the expected production level after Peyton Manning retires? The Broncos must take that into consideration. Also, the wide receiver position is chock full of incredible talent (look at the last two rookie classes). This negotiation is much more complicated than "Thomas puts up great numbers" and that's why Thomas may not get the deal he wants from the Broncos.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas might miss games    Tue Jul 14, 07:22 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas can't be ruled out from missing games while awaiting a new contract. Thomas will not be at training camp on time if no deal has been reached.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Thomas missed games in the regular season. However, we could see Thomas missing a week or two of training camp if no long-term deal can be reached before Wednesday's deadline to do so.

  Broncos | Big gap with Demaryius Thomas    Tue Jul 14, 06:11 PM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas and the Broncos still have a big gap to astringe before the deadline tomorrow, July 14. Thomas supposedly wants to be the top-paid wide receiver in the league. If a deal is not reached before the deadline, Thomas and Denver will have to cease long-term deal talks for the season.

Footballguys view: In other news, water is wet. Thomas could be playing on the one-year, $12.8 million franchise tender in 2015. With Von Miller set to be a free agent in 2016, Thomas may be looking to play elsewhere next season. The Broncos could also elect to use the franchise tag on Thomas once more.

  Broncos | Von Miller affecting Demaryius Thomas?    Tue Jul 14, 05:18 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas and the Broncos have not agreed on a long-term deal despite the deadline for doing so being Wednesday, July 15. The Broncos have already exchanged proposals with Thomas and his agent, but Thomas wants more money. One reason Denver may be hesitant to pay Thomas more is because LB Von Miller will become a free agent after this season. Miller is expected to cost at least $14 million per year, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

Footballguys view: The Broncos could always use the franchise tag on either Thomas or Miller next offseason. Miller is going to be able to shine perhaps brighter than ever under new defensive coorindator Wade Phillips. We wouldn't be shocked to see Miller snare 15-20 sacks in 2015. If he puts up those type of numbers, Miller is going to see a huge pay day for 2016 and beyond.

Thomas is not seeking money similar to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson, he is seeking more than Megatron's deal.

  Broncos | Extension for Osweiler?    Mon Jul 13, 09:56 PM

Cecil Lammey, from ESPN Denver and Footballguys.com, reports the general feeling is that Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler could get a contract extension with a strong performance in the preseason. Osweiler is entering the final year of his contract, but he was drafted as the heir apparent behind Peyton Manning.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners need to take note. Osweiler seems like a perfect fit for the Gary Kubiak system. In fact, CB Chris Harris compared Osweiler to Ravens QB Joe Flacco because of his size (6'7") and rocket arm. Osweiler is athletic enough to run the bootleg, and he's made improvements to his release point and footwork as a pro. Taking over an offense with weapons like Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas (provided he's signed long term) would certainly boost Osweiler's potential. Stay tuned.

  Broncos | Cody Latimer seen as third WR    Mon Jul 13, 02:45 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer is viewed as the Broncos' third wide receiver this year behind WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Latimer said he feels more prepared than he was in his rookie season last year.

Footballguys view: Latimer is a must-own in dynasty leagues. Fantasy owners in re-draft leagues are wise to take Latimer as a late-round flier. Latimer is going to have his role limited by the nature of the Gary Kubiak offense, but incredible natural talent is there.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas not close to deal    Mon Jul 13, 01:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas appears unlikely at this point to receive a long-term contract before the July 15 deadline, according to a source.

Footballguys view: At this time, it doesn't look like Thomas is going to get a new contract. That means he'd have to play the 2015 season on his one-year, $12.8 million franchise tender. Next offseason, Thomas could break the bank with a deal that rivals (or bests) what Calvin Johnson got from the Lions. The Broncos would have the option of slapping the franchise tag on him again or signing him to a new deal next offseason.

  Broncos | Teammate confident in Cody Latimer    Sun Jul 12, 02:30 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer is ready to have a bigger role in the offense this season, according to WR Emmanuel Sanders. 'No doubt, Cody has everything he needs to be one of those guys to make an impact in this league,' Sanders said. 'We expect big things ... you could see it in practice last year; he's ready to do some things.'

Footballguys view: Latimer might pick up some of the slack left in the red zone by Julius Thomas signing in Jacksonville, but Gary Kubiak's offense will use more two TE sets and fewer three wide sets, making Latimer unsuitable to be more than a bench stash to capitalize on an injury to Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders, or possibly plug in when the Broncos appear to have a shootout on the schedule.

  Broncos | Brock Osweiler continues learning    Wed Jul 8, 07:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler hasn't been taking the ability to learn from QB Peyton Manning for granted. 'I'd be lying to you if I said it hasn't been tough to not play over the past three years,' Osweiler said Tuesday, July 7, on Yahoo! Sports Radio, 'but the one thing I do know is ... that I'm going to work on a daily basis with one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game and I guess I really just want to make the most of that situation,' said Osweiler.

Footballguys view: Osweiler's rookie deal is over this year, so the Broncos handling of him will indicate their assessment of his progress and the money thrown at him from other teams will indicate what the league thinks of Osweiler. With more than a few teams still looking for a long-term answer, look for Osweiler to get more money than proven starters at some positions.

  Broncos | Denver tight ends to form platoon?    Wed Jul 8, 03:35 PM

Denver Broncos TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green could both see enough snaps this season to be considered starters, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com.

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green worked out with QB Peyton Manning during his sessions at Duke University this offseason. It is another indication he could be ready to see starter-type snaps in the regular season, even with the addition of TE Owen Daniels.

Footballguys view: Green is more of the blocking tight end and Daniels has worked with head coach Gary Kubiak for his entire career, so don't expect Green to overtake Daniels in fantasy value. Still, if he's ready for more work in the passing game, Green could keep Daniels from being a TE1 for fantasy leagues by splitting the TE production more equally than he did with Julius Thomas.
