  Broncos | Denver to use rotation on O-line    Sat Sep 24, 09:40 PM

  Broncos | John Phillips to start at TE    Sat Sep 24, 05:59 PM

Denver Broncos TE John Phillips will start at tight end in Week 3 in place of TE Virgil Green (calf). TE Jeff Heuerman will also be active for the game.

Footballguys view: Phillips is a big-bodied blocker with little fantasy value. Jeff Heuerman is expected to be the primary pass-catching TE with Green out.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian still adjusting    Sat Sep 24, 04:04 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said QB Trevor Siemian is still adjusting to the speed of the NFL but needs to make better decisions with the ball.

Footballguys view: Siemian doesn't challenge a defense with his arm, and he's thrown three interceptions in two games. The Broncos spent a first-round pick on Paxton Lynch in the 2016 NFL draft, and he could get onto the field at some point this year if Siemian doesn't start to play better. Siemian faces a tough challenge against the Bengals in Week 3 in what is his first road start in the NFL.

  Broncos | Virgil Green hopeful for Week 4 return    Sat Sep 24, 02:00 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) has already been ruled out for Week 3 against Cincinnati Bengals, but he is optimistic he'll be ready to go in Week 4 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: This week the Broncos will turn to Jeff Heuerman as their leading TE. Some could consider him a sneaky DFS play because of his low price. We'd prefer to wait and see here as Heuerman did little of note in training camp.

  Broncos | Denver's Friday injury report    Fri Sep 23, 07:46 PM

Denver Broncos OT Donald Stephenson (calf) and LB DeMarcus Ware (forearm) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and have been ruled out for Week 3. WR Bennie Fowler (elbow), LB Corey Nelson (ankle), LB Dekoda Watson (elbow) and S Justin Simmons (hand) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. C James Ferentz (knee), TE Jeff Heuerman (ankle), OT Ty Sambrailo (ankle, elbow) and DE Billy Winn (back) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas not on injury report    Fri Sep 23, 07:44 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Thomas's hip issue did not seem to materially affect him in Week 2. He said he has been dealing with it for years, so we won't ding him in projections while he's playing through the injury. That he is not on the injury report is a terrific sign for his season-long outlook with this injury.

  Broncos | Virgil Green ruled out    Fri Sep 23, 07:40 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

Footballguys view: John Phillips gets the start, but he's not a viable fill-in. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders could get an extra target or two with Green on the sidelines.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas fully practices    Wed Sep 21, 07:14 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Thomas looked much better in practice on Wednesday than he did a week ago. He should be considered a WR2 for fantasy owners in Week 3.

  Broncos | Virgil Green absent from practice    Wed Sep 21, 03:54 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) did not participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: He's considered day-to-day with this calf injury. If Green can't play against the Bengals on Sunday, we may actually get to see Jeff Heuerman.

  Broncos | Bennie Fowler could be active in Week 3    Tue Sep 20, 11:59 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak indicated he hopes to have WR Bennie Fowler (elbow) active for Week 3.

Footballguys view: The Broncos aren't going to fill the air with footballs as Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders fantasy owners will tell you. Fowler is an interesting dynasty prospect who could work as a no.3 receiver behind those two stars. However, he'll be splitting time/targets with Cody Latimer and Jordan Norwood.

  Broncos | Denver receivers face tough test    Mon Sep 19, 04:07 PM

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders face a stingy Cincinnati Bengals pass defense in Week 3. The Bengals have allowed a combined nine catches for 108 yards to New York Jets WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown through the first two weeks of the season.

Footballguys view: Not only do the Broncos WRs face a tough test, but QB Trevor Siemian also faces a tough defense. We've seen Siemian check down multiple passes as the Broncos starter over two games. That may not work against a swarming Bengals defense who is playing at home.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware out a while     Mon Sep 19, 03:35 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos LB DeMarcus Ware (forearm) will undergo surgery on his fractured forearm Tuesday, Sept. 20. He is expected to miss four to five weeks, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: No problem for a team with so much depth like the Broncos. Last year's first-round pick LB Shane Ray should be bumped up the depth chart. Shaq Barrett will get more reps as a rotational pass-rusher for the Broncos while Ware is out.

  Broncos | Donald Stephenson likely out 2-3 weeks    Mon Sep 19, 02:15 PM

Denver Broncos OT Donald Stephenson (calf) sustained a calf injury during a Week 2 win over the Indianapolis Colts and is expected to miss two to three weeks. Darrion Weems took over at right tackle following the injury and is expected to replace him in the lineup.

Footballguys view: Weems actually played right guard. It was starting RG Michael Schofield who bumped out to right tackle. Schofield started there last year for the Broncos but didn't grade out well. We'll see if Weems (who can also play tackle) goes outside with a week of practice before Sunday's game against the Bengals in Week 3.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware may miss three weeks    Mon Sep 19, 10:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos LB DeMarcus Ware (forearm) is likely to miss at least three weeks with a broken bone in his forearm.

Footballguys view: There's no word yet on whether or not Ware needs surgery to repair his ulnar fracture. With surgery, the recovery time would be longer. The Broncos should reveal more about Ware's injury in the near future.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas will play    Sun Sep 18, 03:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

Footballguys view: We will be watching Thomas closely to look for signs of routes that he will have trouble running and how he responds after hits on the hip. He's more WR3/Flex than WR1 this week, and with a lot of risk.

  Broncos | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 18, 03:26 PM

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas likely to play Sunday    Sun Sep 18, 10:39 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, the club wants him to participate in pregame warmups before a final decision is made.

Footballguys view: Break ties against Thomas, who should run a limited route tree and carries a risk of in-game re-injury. The Colts secondary is so poor that he could still have a strong day on fewer targets, but the talk by Thomas about the injury and way he has been limited in practice is a bad sign for his Week 2 numbers.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas may be game-time decision    Sat Sep 17, 04:37 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) may be a game-time decision for the team's Week 2 game, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Thomas had a good -- but limited -- week of practice. Consider him a WR3 against a bad (and banged up) Colts defense. If Thomas is down -- or limited on a snap count -- we could see Emmanuel Sanders do more as a receiver on Sunday.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas questionable    Fri Sep 16, 04:34 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Thomas is looking like a game-time decision, although he looked better as the week went on in practice. His upside is capped a bit by his hip issue, but the matchup against the Colts is so good that Thomas still deserves WR2 consideration if he is active, despite the risk of an in-game aggravation.

  Broncos | Derek Wolfe back at practice    Fri Sep 16, 01:57 PM

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas 'on track' for Week 2    Fri Sep 16, 01:47 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) appeared to look much better running routes Friday, Sept. 16, than he has at any point earlier in the week, according to Denver7 Sports' Troy Renck.

Footballguys view: Our Cecil Lammey reported something similar. Thomas isn't as risky as Sammy Watkins was last night, and it's a good sign that his form is getting better as the week goes coming off of extra rest after Week 1's Thursday night game.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas expects to play in pain    Fri Sep 16, 10:00 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) expects to play in pain in Week 2 with a hip injury that he said he has dealt with for a while.

Footballguys view: Thomas has a great matchup against the Colts this week, but he's only a low WR2/strong WR3 at best. The Broncos passing volume is way down from last year, and unless Andrew Luck can have success against their fierce defense, the Broncos should be able to control this game.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas limited again    Thu Sep 15, 07:12 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited in practice again Thursday, September 15. He participated in 'roughly' a third of the snaps, but they were more significant ones than previous practice sessions in which he was limited.

Footballguys view: Thomas looked better in practice today than he did on Wednesday according to our very own Cecil Lammey. We'll see if Thomas can practice more fully on Friday. Consider him a WR3 for fantasy this week, and see if you can find a way to get Emmanuel Sanders into your lineup as a flex.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas limited    Wed Sep 14, 07:25 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: By practice reports, Thomas looked sore on the field. Even head coach Gary Kubiak said as much at his press conference. The team expects Thomas to play with what basically comes down to pain tolerance. This hip injury has us concerned, so it may be a bigger day for Emmanuel Sanders than it is Thomas on Sunday against a bad Colts secondary. Find other options if you can, if things change by Friday we will let you know.

  Broncos | Von Miller contained by Colts    Wed Sep 14, 11:30 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller has no sacks in four career games against the Indianapolis Colts, which is the most games Miller has against any opponent without recording one.

Denver Broncos FS Darian Stewart was fined $18,231 Wednesday, Sept. 14, for his hit on Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Stewart was flagged on the play late in the game against the Panthers. Flying in to hit Newton, Stewart ended up making contact with the QBs helmet. It was one of many rough hits Newton took against the Broncos in Week 1.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to practice Wednesday    Mon Sep 12, 02:19 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) is 'feeling better' and expected to return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Thomas should be limited in practice this week as he deals with this hip injury. The Broncos have the Colts at home on Sunday, and Thomas should be able to take advantage of a weak Colts D. If he plays, consider Thomas a WR2 with upside in Week 2.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas has hip injury    Sun Sep 11, 10:21 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip) underwent an MRI exam Friday, Sept. 9, after suffering a hip injury during Week 1's game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Sept. 8. He will receive a second opinion on his results, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Cody Latimer would be next in line outside, but we won't rush to pick him up. This could make tight end Virgil Green a more prominent target if Thomas misses time. It's not a good sign for the team to seek a second opinion and we have to be open to Thomas missing time or playing at a limited level of effectiveness while he rides out this injury.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker not involved    Fri Sep 9, 12:50 AM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker had three carries for eight yards and lost a fumble and was not targeted in the passing game in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Booker fumbled on his first carry, but looked better on subsequent carries. The bigger problem is that CJ Anderson was dominant and gave the Broncos little reason to mix Booker in. He might not be the clear handcuff to Anderson if he fumbles again. Booker's value is down off of Week 1, but next week's matchup against the Colts should give him a chance to recover.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian mediocre in win    Fri Sep 9, 12:39 AM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian completed 18 of his 26 passes for 178 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and ran five times for 20 yards in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Siemian made two big mistakes on the Carolina half of the field, letting a dumpoff get batted and intercepted and trying to float one over a downfield defender with pressure in his face. Still, he was calm in the pocket, executing cleanly, and not afraid to use his legs. He's still a fringe fantasy quarterback, but it should only get better for Siemian and the Broncos against the Colts next week.

  Broncos | Quiet night for Demaryius Thomas    Fri Sep 9, 12:34 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had four catches for 48 yards on six targets in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Thomas was more involved early, but didn't have a chance for a big game against the Panthers young corners because the Broncos nursed a lead for part of the second half. He might have trouble living up to his third round ADP with Emmanuel Sanders looking like a 1A and not a 2 to his 1, but Trevor Siemian's performance against a tough defense was still encouraging for Thomas owners.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson shines in Week 1    Fri Sep 9, 12:08 AM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson had 20 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown and four catches for 47 yards and a touchdown in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Anderson might go in the first round of late drafts. He looked as good as he has in his entire career, dragging tacklers, winning collisions, and using terrific footwork and vision to maximize the gains in Gary Kubiak's offense. He might be the #1 ranked running back next week facing the Colts.
