Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Following unsuccessful attempts of trading C.J. Anderson, the Broncos released their former No. 1 back.

Fantasy Impact:

Anderson turned 27 in February and just rushed for his first 1,000-yard season in 2017. It's likely he'll land somewhere soon, and if it's with a team where the depth chart isn't too crowded, he should remain in the fantasy RB2 realm.

As for the Broncos, their RB depth chart currently consists of Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson. It would be surprising if they don't add at least one back via the draft.

Broncos sign punter Marquette King

Thursday, April 5, 2018, 2:44pm - [Full Article]

The Denver Broncos have signed punter Marquette King to a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

It didn't take King long to find a new gig after being released by the Oakland Raiders last week. He should be an upgrade over Riley Dixon, whom King bested in average yards per punt (47.4 to 45.6), net yards per punt (42.7 to 40.2), and punts downed inside the 20-yard-line (28 to 20) last season, according to King should be the top overall pick in punter-only fantasy leagues that awards bonus style points for celebrations.

QB Trevor Siemian being traded to the Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings needed a backup QB, and the Broncos had a surplus of them after signing Case Keenum, so a deal has been worked out between the two teams to send Trevor Siemian and a 2018 late-round pick to Minnesota in exchange for a draft pick in 2019.

Fantasy Impact:

The former seventh-round pick, Siemian seems to have already exceeded expectations after being a starting QB in Denver. He will now become Kirk Cousins' backup in Minnesota.

WR Allen Robinson to sign with the Chicago Bears

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Adam Schefter is pulling a late-night shift in the NFL breaking news department. First, he broke the news that QB Case Keenum plans to sign with the Denver Broncos, and now he's reporting that WR Allen Robinson will become a Chicago Bear as soon as free agency opens.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bears clearly need a No. 1 WR, and Robinson fits the bill. He only played in one game last season, but he's not that far removed from a breakout career season in 2015, when he caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Kendall Wright led the Bears last season with 59 catches for 614 yards. No Bears receiver caught more than one touchdown last season. A healthy Robinson should quickly become a favorite target of Mitch Trubisky.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 17. West should be able to play against the Broncos and may see a big workload if the team rests Kareem Hunt.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Lynch will get the start this week.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) ruled OUT for Week 17

Troy Renck - [Full Article]

After missing practice all week, Sanders has been ruled out for the Broncos' season finale versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Fellow WR Cody Latimer will also miss the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Demaryius Thomas will be the No. 1 WR for Denver this week in a great matchup, according to our aFPA metric—the Chiefs rank 27th vs. WRs in aFPA. We have Thomas ranked as a top-16 WR across the board. Bennie Fowler should also see an uptick in targets.

Broncos will start Paxton Lynch (ankle) at QB if ready

Tuesday, December 26, 2017, 10:00am - [Full Article]

And as the football week begins Tuesday, the Broncos will again face a decision regarding whether Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback.

Lynch, who is recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 12 against the Raiders, practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Broncos’ game in Washington. He was a full participant Friday, but Osweiler started and played the entirety of Sunday’s contest.

Head Coach Vance Joseph noted earlier in the week that Lynch’s health would play a key role in determining whether he would start vs. Washington.

Following Sunday’s game, Joseph reiterated that point.

“Our goal is to see him play, so absolutely,” Joseph said. “If he’s ready to go next week, he will probably play for us.”

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch and Osweiler actually split reps leading up to the Washington game. With lots of QB questions heading into next season, the Broncos would clearly like to see more of Lynch.

Broncos WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) and Cody Latimer (thigh) OUT Week 16

Patrick Smyth - [Full Article]

Injury report update for the Broncos: WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) and Cody Latimer (thigh) did not make the trip to Washington and have been downgraded to out for Sunday's game.

Related Players: Demaryius Thomas

Fantasy Impact:

Expect Demaryius Thomas to see a ton of targets Week 16 with Denver now without its second and third WRs.

Friday, December 22, 2017, 5:37pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. Beat writer Mike Klis said that Sanders is on the “doubtful side of questionable” for Week 16. If he’s out, Cody Latimer should see a bump in targets.

Friday, December 22, 2017, 5:37pm

Broncos WR Cody Latimer (thigh, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 16.

Friday, December 22, 2017, 5:37pm

Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 16. Perine looks very iffy to play after injuring his groin in practice this week. LeShun Daniels was placed on injured reserve, so Kapri Bibbs could see a lot of touches in a bad matchup against the Broncos.
