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.''
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.
