Broncos WR3 job up for grabs

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

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.

Texans WR DeVier Posey (calf, probable) took full practice reps Friday and is probable for Week 16. Posey may draw the start if DeAndre Hopkins is ruled out.

Andre Johnson (concussion) considered day-to-day

Tuesday, December 9, 2014, 9:30am - [Full Article]

Texans WR Andre Johnson must undergo the league’s five-step concussion protocol before his status for Sunday's game at Indianapolis can be determined.

“That’s exactly where it stands though,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “He has to pass the concussion test to be able to be cleared. I would say that’s definitely a day-to-day thing.”

Fantasy Impact:

If Johnson can't start, O'Brien said wide receiver DeVier Posey is a candidate to play. Posey has been inactive for each game this season. Johnson left early in the second quarter after suffering a helmet-to-helmet hit by Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith. The All-Pro receiver headed for the locker room after being examined on the field by team’s medical staff.

Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins ACTIVE for MNF

Texans Inactives
Jeff Adams T
Josh Aubrey DB
Jadeveon Clowney OLB
Darryl Morris DB
DeVier Posey WR
Jumal Rolle DB
Tom Savage QB

Fantasy Impact:

As expected, RB Arian Foster and WRs Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are active for Monday night. It's a great matchup for Foster owners against Pittsburgh while we have Johnson as a low end WR2 and Hopkins a WR3 against a better Steeler passing defense.

He threw back-to-back touchdown passes during a red zone drill -- both perfectly placed to receiver Devier Posey and then to running back Arian Foster.

Just a few minutes later, Ryan Fitzpatrick launched a ball to the back of the end zone, high enough that only receiver Andre Johnson could catch it. Johnson tip-toed in-bounds in throwback Andre Johnson fashion, and was enveloped by his teammates.

"I thought Fitzy came out here and worked very well today," Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien said.

One of the Texans’ hardest-working players is third-year receiver DeVier Posey.

Posey (6-1, 210) stays after practice every day working with the JUGS gun. Other receivers and tight ends always join Posey after practice, but long after the others are gone, he remains.

Posey catches passes from every angle. He faces the machine. He turns his back to the machine and turns right to make catches, then turns left to make more receptions.

When Andre Johnson sat out the offseason program, Posey benefited by getting more repetitions in the OTAs. There’s a good chance he could be the team’s most improved receiver.
