Week 11: vs Cincinnati Bengals
FBG says: Bad matchup. With Brock Osweiler at the helm, there's little reason to be hopeful for the Broncos passing game. Osweiler has again proven a sub-mediocre quarterback, generally incapable of moving the ball or avoiding drive-killing sacks and turnovers. He showcased a great connection with Emmanuel Sanders in Week 11, connecting 5 times for 114 yards in the first half, only to fall apart in the second. It's hard to imagine what Osweiler brings to the offense that Trevor Siemian doesn't - he's completed just 52.1% of his throws, with 3 interceptions - but he'll remain the starter for at least another week. We saw against the Patriots that Osweiler's presence doesn't doom Sanders' or Demaryius Thomas' fantasy outlooks, since they absolutely dominate the offense's attention, but it certainly caps their upsides. We may not see this passing game threaten 250 yards again this year. In Week 10, the Bengals continued their strong (and sometimes overwhelming) 2017 run of pass defense. This is a top-five NFL unit in both raw yardage and net yardage allowed per attempt, and it's allowed just 3 days of 250+ yards on the season. The dynamic pass rush and solid coverage unit have combined to suffocate opposing wideouts; through 9 games, only 2 opponents (Geronimo Allison and Marqise Lee) have reached 75 receiving yards, while both Antonio Brown (65 on 10 targets) and T.Y. Hilton (15 on 7) have been more or less neutralized. This group will provide tough sledding to virtually any NFL passer, and it's almost appropriate to pity Brock Osweiler right now.

Latest NewsBroncos | Isaiah McKenzie will be inactive (Fri Nov 17, 09:36 PM) - Denver Broncos WR Isaiah McKenzie will be inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 Sports. Our View: No surprise here. The rookie has five fumbles on returns this year and his last fumble (against the Patriots in Week 10) was finally enough. He's a slot WR/return man with little value in dynasty leagues.
