Week 2: vs Chicago Bears

All TE vs CHI

FBG says: Bad matchup. Joe Flacco had a disappointing debut as a Bronco, completing just 21-of-31 pass attempts and just one touchdown, which came on the final drive against a prevent defense. Flacco was under some pressure throughout the night as his offensive line had a tough time in pass protection, and he was not the most accurate on a number of throws throughout the night. Wide receiver Cortland Sutton is not complaining after Week 1, however, as he finished as the top receiver with seven receptions from eight targets and 120 yards. Sutton was a favorite target of Flacco and showed some solid chemistry, appearing to be the top option in the passing game for the Broncos. Emmanuel Sanders was not far behind though, as he too finished with a strong stat line of five receptions for 86 yards and the lone touchdown despite being held to just one catch before halftime. Phillip Lindsay was also involved through the air with four receptions for 23 yards as he made some hay on dump-offs. Beyond these three, there appeared to be no other relevant options in this passing offense--especially as tight end Noah Fant seemed to struggle in his NFL debut. The Bears played a strong game against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last week, limiting them to just 203 passing yards and a single passing touchdown. Both Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara were sharp in coverage as no single Bears wide receiver had more than four receptions--including Davante Adams who could haul in just half of his targets for 36 yards under this tight coverage. Even Buster Skrine--the newcomer and noted weak link in this cornerback group--had a solid showing as he didn't allow a reception in limited snaps from the slot. He faces a higher level of talent this week though, as slot receiver Emmanuel Sanders should have the edge in his matchup. The Bears defensive line also showed out well as they racked up seven hits and five sacks on Rodgers. With an offensive line that struggled against a mediocre Raiders defensive front and matchup disadvantages for his outside receivers, Joe Flacco should be in for a long game this Sunday.

Broncos | Three officially on IR (Mon Sep 2, 04:18 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb), RB Theo Riddick (shoulder) and TE Jake Butt (knee) were officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 2.

Our View: Lock is the 2019 second-round pick who could be the future franchise quarterback of the Broncos. Riddick could be the team's leading pass-catching back when healthy. Butt has only played in three games during his two seasons with the Broncos and is still dealing with the knee injury that cost him most of the 2018 season.
