Week 8: at Denver Broncos

All WR vs DEN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Philip Rivers had a modest day passing the football two weeks ago, when Denver rolled into San Diego - 18/29 for 178 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -12 yards. Hunter Henry led the team in receiving that day with eight targets for 6/83/1 receiving, followed by Tyrell Williams (three for 3/28/0) and Travis Benjamin five for (3/17/0). Unfortunately, this week Henry is in the concussion protocols and looks iffy to play on Sunday - look for Antonio Gates to pick up the slack while Henry gets his head right again. It was bombs away for Rivers in Atlanta last weekend, 27/44 for 371 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -23 yards. Tyrell Williams (10 targets for 7/140/0 receiving) and Antonio Gates (10 for 5/38/0) were the most heavily-targeted players by Rivers last week, with six for 3/58/0 flowing to Dontrelle Inman and five for 4/54/0 going to Travis Benjamin - Melvin Gordon had seven targets for 6/53/1 to claim the lone TD - Henry managed three for 1/16/0 before his injury. So far this year the Broncos are the number one pass defense in the land with 175.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with four passing scores given out vs. five interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 22 sacks (first in the NFL) generated. From Week Five to Week Seven of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Denver has averaged 12.9 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (second-least in the NFL); and 6.5 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (least in the NFL); with 7.4 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (12th-most). At Mile High Stadium, this is a very tough matchup for Rivers and company.
