With Brock Osweiler, Broncos could use TE more

Brock Osweiler is under center and Gary Kubiak is running his preferred set of play calls, which means the tight end is more heavily involved in Denver.

In Osweiler's first start last week, tight ends Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis were the Broncos' two leading receivers, combining for 10 caches and 137 yards.

Davis caught a team-high six passes from Osweiler after snagging just two in his previous two games with the Broncos. The tight end said his rapport with the young quarterback was on point from his first practice in Denver.

"Sometimes it takes awhile to get on the same page and develop that chemistry with a quarterback," Davis said, via the Denver Post. "But with this guy, it's like we connected from Day One."

Fantasy Impact: 

Denver acquired Davis at the trade deadline to help replace the production lost when Julius Thomas left for Jacksonville. With Osweiler physically able to perform Kubiak's bootleg-action plays, tight ends will have a bigger role in the coming weeks, the story said. We thought it could take some time, but Davis is certainly someone to monitor if you're looking for help at the TE position.
