Broncos Beat: WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer will replace Wes Welker's production

ESPN - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Jeff Legwold: "Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer - those are your two primary players, as the Broncos replace Wes Welker's production in the offense."

Fantasy Impact: 

Andre Caldwell wasn't mentioned in the video, but Legwold was focusing on Latimer and Sanders' extra work with Peyton Manning, something that Caldwell doesn't necessarily need since he and Manning have played together for a while now. So it's not clear if he was inferring that Latimer and Sanders would pick up the slack due to the extra work, or if he has seen some other indication that this will be the case. Regardless, with Welker out, there are targets and snaps to be distributed, and all three players should see a larger role. We won't know if Latimer or Caldwell is the better start until we see their usage, though we're betting on the larger Latimer having a red zone role, which enhances his value.
