Emmanuel Sanders Not Much of a Factor Against Texans

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught six of nine targets for 47 yards in the Broncos loss to the Texans Sunday. Houston deserves plenty of credit in limiting the Broncos aerial attack, but Sanders has now averaged just 52 yards receiving over the Broncos last two after back-to-back 100-plus yard days in Weeks 6...

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay picked up 60 yards on 17 carries while adding 24 yards on two receptions in the Broncos 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday.

Case Keenum Finally Ends Interception Streak

Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum completed 26 of 42 pass attempts for 290 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday.

Jeff Heuerman Puts Up Career Numbers

Denver Broncos tight end Jeff Heuerman brought in 10 of 11 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday.

Denver Broncos Defense Offering Sneaky Value

There's no denying that the Houston Texans offense is talented enough to be one of the most prolific in the NFL. There's also no denying that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has been sacked 26 times this season (second to only Eli Manning). The Denver Broncos defense has picked up 13 sacks over their last three... Read More

Emmanuel Sanders is the No. 1 Receiver He's Been All Season

A matchup with the Houston Texans hasn't been fruitful for most wide receivers this season, but Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has received 8.1 targets per game - a number which should rise with the departure of Demaryius Thomas. The Broncos coaching staff has been vocal in wanting to provide some of their younger... Read More

Devontae Booker Warrants Flex Consideration in PPR Formats

Denver Broncos running back Devontae Booker took full advantage of Royce Freeman's ankle injury to the tune of 101 scrimmage yards in Week 8 and should again see some additional run Sunday when the Broncos take on the Houston Texans.

Phillip Lindsay Remains First in Line to See the Bulk of Carries

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman has yet to practice with the team this week and appears unlikely to suit up for the team's Week 9 matchup against the Houston Texans, opening the door for running back Phillip Lindsay to see the bulk of the carries for the second straight week. Lindsay has been highly... Read More

Case Keenum a Low-End Streaming Option in Week 9

Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum has still failed to complete a game this season in which he did not complete a pass to the opposing team. That's not good. What is good is the fact that Keenum has averaged 280.5 passing yards over the Broncos last four contests while tossing seven touchdowns (four interceptions). Houston... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/1/18): NBA DFS Lineups

It may come to you in the form of religion, maybe it's addiction or any of the countless credences I will not expend the time or energy to list, but us humans have a tendency to believe in something(s) larger than ourselves.

RotoBaller NBA Recap: Drama Reigns Supreme

It was Game 2 of the opening round of the 2012-2013 NBA Playoffs. Russell Westbrook nonchalantly crossed midcourt and decided to pull off one of those casual, I'm too cool to signal for a timeout so I'm just going to point at the ref deals. A play we see at least once a game -... Read More

Courtland Sutton Paces Broncos Sunday

He only brought in three passes, but Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton led all Broncos with 78 receiving yards in their 23-30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Sutton appears to be Demaryius Thomas' successor, but one thing seems fairly clear at this point, Sutton's fantasy value will be limited as long... Read More

Tim Patrick Records First Career NFL Touchdown

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick brought in a 24-yard pass from quarterback Case Keenum late in the second quarter of the Broncos 23-30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs for his first career NFL touchdown.

Devontae Booker Takes Advantage of Opportunity

After being buried on the depth chart behind Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman through the season's first seven weeks, Denver Broncos running back Devontae Booker capitalized on Freeman's ankle injury to the tune of 101 yards from scrimmage (78 yards on nine carries and 23 yards on four receptions). Unfortunately, this appears to be a... Read More

Case Keenum Continues Down Treacherous Path

Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum extended the NFL's longest active interception streak to eight games in the Broncos 23-30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.

Phillip Lindsay is Still Very Good at Football

Many expected Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay to shine in the absence of fellow RB mate Royce Freeman. He didn't disappoint. Lindsay's performance wasn't quite enough to lead the Broncos to a victory Sunday, but he picked up 95 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries while adding an additional 17 yards on three... Read More

Week 8 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchup Analysis

Man, I was hoping this would be the season where someone would knock the (5-2) New England Patriots off the AFC East throne... It's not. They're on their way to their 10th-straight division title and when they defeat the (2-5) Buffalo Bills on Monday night, it'll be nothing more than an assertion of continued dominance... Read More

Brandon McManus a Solid Bye-Week Option

Having kicked his way to 58 fantasy points on the season, Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus is tied for the 10th most fantasy points at the position and at 8.3 fantasy points per game, he makes for a viable option this week with four teams on bye. The Chiefs have allowed their opponents to find... Read More

Denver Broncos Defense Enters the No Fly Zone

Once coined the "No Fly Zone" due to their prowess in shutting down their opponent's aerial attacks, this Denver Broncos defense/special teams unit finds themselves as the ones in the no fly zone for fantasy owners this week, as they'll head to Arrowhead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Largely due to their 33... Read More

Demaryius Thomas Remains a Risky Play for Fantasy Owners

It seems likely that Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas will remain a Denver Bronco by the time we reach the Oct, 30 trade deadline, and barring an unexpected turn of events, he'll be donning the blue and orange while running routes against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. Having found the end zone... Read More

Emmanuel Sanders Hoping to Erase Week 4 Dud

We're not ready to call Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders matchup-proof, but his 86.1 receiving yards per game rank 13th among WRs this season and his 24 percent target share offers him a relatively high weekly floor. Sanders had (arguably) his worst game of the season in Week 4 against the Chiefs -- five... Read More

Devontae Booker Looks to Capitalize on Increased Role

Heading into the 2018 offseason, many figured Denver Broncos running back Devontae Booker would be the team's featured back. Well, he'd been relegated to a tertiary role by the time the preseason concluded and seven weeks and 1.9 carries per game into the regular season, it's clear that role isn't large enough to garner much...

Weeks 5 and 6 saw Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum average 349.5 passing yards while tossing four touchdown passes -- exceeding his total of three from the three games prior -- and averaging 20.3 fantasy points per game.

Backfields to Avoid - Rest of Season

I’m not ashamed to admit that there are certain things in life that, frankly, I’m just simply too good for. Fast food restaurants inside of gas stations, for example. No, thank you.
