Broncos WR3 job up for grabs

ESPN - [Full Article]

Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are locked in as the top-two WRs for the Broncos.

Bennie Fowler has gone from the Broncos’ practice squad in 2014 to the guy who looks like the solid No. 3 receiver on the defending Super Bowl champions.

And Cody Latimer, the Broncos’ second-round pick in the 2014 draft, has crossed some football valleys and has slowly started to show the potential the Broncos believe he has always had. He has battled confidence issues at times, struggled with some assignments and arrived to his third season with eight career catches.

Add it up and the remainder of the wide receiver group could be scrapping for one spot. Jordan Norwood, Jordan Taylor, Kalif Raymond, DeVier Posey, Bralon Addison and Mose Frazier all have had their practice moments.

Fantasy Impact:

Latimer has made himself into one of the best special teams players on the roster, the story said. That seems to indicate he'll have a roster spot. Of course, the QB situation is still up in the which hurts the value of all the Bronco WRs right now. But whomever wins the WR3 job will at least be worth noting.

Denver deep at WR

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Last year, there were Denver Pro Bowlers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders and not much else, as those two pass catchers accounted for 80 percent of the team's production at wide receiver.

This year, coaches are excited about the leaps being made by holdovers Bennie Fowler, Jordan Norwood and Cody Latimer, all of whom stepped it up in the playoffs and are now vying for the No. 3 receiver job this summer.

They're joined by two free agent acquisitions familiar with Kubiak's system in DeVier Posey and Marlon Brown.

''I've said from day one: that really has the chance to be the strength of our team,'' HC Gary Kubiak said Sunday. ''It's going to be really hard to make our team at that position.''

Fantasy Impact:

The bad news is the QB position is up in air right now. Mark Sanchez could be the starter and has been inconsistent through most of his career but especially as of late with the Eagles. The battle for the team's WR3 spot could have some fantasy impact so it's worth monitoring.

Trevor Siemian QB

Fantasy Impact:

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will play in Week 10 but likely won't be 100-percent in this contest. He was listed as questionable during the week. As expected, Peyton Manning and C.J. Anderson are active.

Friday, November 13, 2015, 6:45pm

Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 10. Norwood has served as the team’s WR3 when healthy and may play a bigger role if Emmanuel Sanders is out against the Chiefs.

Friday, November 13, 2015, 6:45pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 10. The lack of practice reps this week are concerning, and it looks like Sanders is in real danger of missing Week 10. The Broncos play late on Sunday, which doesn’t help. Jordan Norwood, Andre Caldwell and Bennie Fowler are the next men up, with Cody Latimer a distant fourth in that group in snaps played this season.

Thursday, November 12, 2015, 6:09pm

Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015, 6:46pm

Shane Ray LB
Trevor Siemian QB
Shelly Smith G
Kyle Williams WR

Fantasy Impact:

Both Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson are active. Hillman had a thigh injury last week while Anderson was dealing with an ankle injury, but was considered probable. The two will likely split carries again this week but Hillman may not be 100-percent.

Friday, November 6, 2015, 6:19pm

Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 9.

Broncos Beat: Montee Ball, Cody Latimer are the 'biggest disappointments' of camp

Friday, September 4, 2015, 7:24pm

Denver Post - [Full Article]

The Denver Post named Montee Ball and Cody Latimer the "biggest disappointments" of camp.

Biggest disappointment: Montee Ball failed to gain traction in the new offense. He is a smart player, a hard worker, but he does not look like the player he was at Wisconsin or even during his rookie season. There haven't been many holes to run through, but in the NFL you have to make tacklers miss and break tackles, which Ball has not done with any consistency.

Receiver Cody Latimer also failed to make big plays, which could cost him snaps as Andre Caldwell and Jordan Norwood receive opportunities before him.

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds as if Latimer may not have a solid hold of the WR3 spot. He's not going to play much if HC Gary Kubiak sticks with his usual two-TE sets. Ball has fallen down the depth chart and is in danger of getting cut.
