Fantasy Football Outlook: Denver Broncos

Hi, I am going to give you a fantasy football outlook on all 32 teams. I will be doing this in alphabetical order. It will be 32 teams in the next 32 days. I will be giving a fantasy stud, fantasy bust, fantasy breakout player, fantasy sleeper, top fantasy rookie, and since some leagues do defensive players – instead of team defensive, I will be doing top fantasy defensive player. So let’s get this started. Please follow me on Twitter @aaron_truesdale.

Fantasy Overview:

The Broncos do have some young stars so it was difficult to find a fantasy stud, however, these are the players I came up with to look for and avoid in fantasy football.

Fantasy Stud: Brandon McManus K

A Kicker? I know, not the most ideal fantasy stud but I don’t like leaving a category empty. So I went with McManus because he is one of the top kickers in the game. When you’re looking for a consistent kicker, go with Mcmanus. I know I could have gone Bridgewater here but I don’t know if he will even be the starter this season. Sorry it’s the best I could do for the Broncos.

Fantasy Bust: Melvin Gordon III RB

Gordon is a running back I would avoid in fantasy football drafts this season. His numbers declined last year and I think it’s safe to assume that his decline will continue this season. Now that they’ve drafted Javonte Williams, Gordon’s days as a fantasy running back are numbered.

Fantasy Sleeper: K.J. Hamler WR

Hamler will be an under-the-radar pick for fantasy owners. He might not be even drafted at all. This is the year Hamlin could be a late-round steal for owners and could be one of those fantasy picks that help win a championship in fantasy football. He will be a wide receiver two by season’s end.

Fantasy Breakout: Jerry Jeudy WR

Jeudy will be a sure-fire wide receiver one by season’s ends. He will put up good numbers and will burst into the fantasy football scene this season. He can be a mid-round pick as a wide receiver two or three that a fantasy football owner will strike gold with. So have tons of confidence in Jeudy this fantasy football season.

Top Fantasy Rookie: Javonte Williams RB

Gordon’s days are numbered in Denver. Williams will burst into the season week one and never look back. Gordon will be Williams’ backup after week one. So you can trust Javonte Williams as a running back two this season.

Top Fantasy Defensive Player: Von Miller

If Von Miller can stay healthy all year, he is a top-tier fantasy football defensive player. He will terrorize the opposing offense and teams will game plan him. He will likely go mid-round of fantasy drafts but if you are willing to take the high risk there will be a high reward. I would say the high risk is worth it because the reward is much better.

I hope you enjoy my Team Fantasy Outlooks. Please comment to let me know what you think I welcome the feedback. I also will be more than happy to discuss any player or team further.

    Well, for one thing, in the league I play in (on ESPN.com), participants don’t pick a player for each position. You pick a whole team’s defense…

      I know most leagues do team defenses but I know of leagues that do individual defensive players as well so I am trying to help them prepare as well.
