Coaching Matters: 2021 Denver Broncos Coaching Staff Preview

Jerry Jeudy - Fantasy Football Rankings, NFL Injury News, Draft Sleepers

After every NFL season, NFL teams take the time to evaluate not only the players but also the coaching staff and front office as well. While many teams choose to retain the same head coach, offensive coordinator, and defensive coordinator, a few other teams opt to go in a new direction with their coaching staff.

One team that managed to maintain their core coaching staff this offseason was the Denver Broncos, with head coach Vic Fangio, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell all returning for the 2021-22 season.

This article will look at the potential impact this coaching staff will have on the players and try to pinpoint the Broncos players' fantasy values in it.

Editor's Note: Our incredible team of writers won two writing awards and received 12 award nominations by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association. A big congrats to our very own Byron Lindeque (Golf) and Jordan McAbee (NASCAR) for both winning Writer Of The Year awards!

2021 Offense

2021 Offensive Coordinator: Pat Shurmur

Pat Shurmur was hired as the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator in 2020 after being fired from the New York Giants. Before joining the Broncos, Pat Shurmur was an offensive coordinator for St. Louis Rams (2009-2010), Philadelphia Eagles (2013-2015), and Minnesota Vikings (2016-2017), and also a head coach for the Cleveland Browns (2011-2012) and New York Giants (2018-2019). Let's dive into some statistics from Shurmur's prior experiences as an offensive coordinator to get a better understanding of how the Broncos may utilize their offensive players in 2021.

Pat Shurmur Takeaways & Expectations

Over the course of Pat Shurmur's 185 game career as an offensive coordinator or head coach, his offense has averaged a middle-of-the-pack number of passes with 35.92 passing attempts per game. It has continued to hover around this range the past two years he's had offensive play-calling duties, with the 2019 New York Giants attempting 37.94 pass attempts per game and the 2020 Denver Broncos attempting 34.75 passes per game. It is important to note that the 2020 Broncos passing attempt averages are dragged down a bit because of a game against the New Orleans Saints where the team didn't have any quarterbacks eligible to play due to COVID protocols and ended up only attempting nine passes - the entire game. The Broncos averaged 36.47 passing attempts per game over the other 15 games of the season, so it is likely Shurmur has his offense attempt slightly more passes than the league averages in the 2021 season.

Besides passing, it's also important to look at the amount of rushing work that a quarterback may receive since it can provide a major boost to their fantasy production.

For the most part, Pat Shurmur has not seen his quarterbacks take off and run much because it was not a part of his quarterback's game (Michael Vick in 2013 and maybe Colt McCoy in 2011 are the only exceptions). This has resulted in Shurmur's QB room averaging just 2.78 carries per game over the course of his career, and his offenses being below the league average in this area for much of his career. Overall, the winner of the Broncos' starting quarterback job will likely get a decent amount of passing work but a below-average amount of work on the ground and stick to more of the QB2 range from a fantasy perspective.

Examining Pat Shurmur's running back rooms over the course of his career it's a pretty positive outlook. In the 185 games that Shurmur's been an offensive coordinator or head coach, his running back room has averaged 0.65 rushing touchdowns per game which is around league average. In addition, his running backs have averaged 23.11 carries per game which is above the league average.

Pat Shurmur has been pretty reliable in providing his running backs with work on the ground over the course of his career. But besides the amount of volume (carries) on the ground that Shurmur has historically provided, we also need to consider how that volume has been distributed over the course of his career - is Shurmur rolling with a bell-cow or a running back by committee approach?

Examining the season carries data, Shurmur has generally taken a bell-cow approach to the running back position, with multiple seasons where his lead back on the season saw more than 70% of the carries. Prior to the draft, it looked like Melvin Gordon was going to be the beneficiary of this approach, but after the team selected Javonte Williams early in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft there's a lot more uncertainty about who will be the lead back. Because of this the battle for the Broncos starting running back job will be one to watch closely as training camp approaches.

The final aspect we should look at concerning Pat Shurmur's running backs is how much he has traditionally utilized them as pass-catchers. Over the course of his career, Shurmur's running back room has averaged 6.65 targets per game.

Shurmur has generally provided his running backs with an average amount of targets over the course of his career, but in the 2020 season, he provided his tailbacks with the least amount of targets per game of his 12-year career. While we should expect some bounce-back to the norm of around six running back targets per game for the 2021 season, this will be something to watch for going forward.

Overall, Pat Shurmur will provide his running backs with plenty of carries, has been successful with the bell cow approach, and gives his running backs a mediocre number of targets in the passing game. Based on this information, the Broncos lead back should get plenty of opportunities to put up numbers in the 2021 season - it's just a matter of figuring out who that will be between the veteran Melvin Gordon and the rookie Javonte Williams.

Looking at the wide receiver position, Shurmur has provided his wide receivers with 20.29 targets per game over the course of his 185 game career as an offensive play-caller.

Shurmur's wide receiver usage has stayed remarkably consistent over the course of his 12-year career as a play-caller, staying between 18.19 targets per game and 24 targets every year. This middle-of-the-pack usage suggests that the Broncos can definitely support one fantasy-relevant wide receiver and maybe even two if the quarterback play can improve.

Lastly, Shurmur's historical usage of tight ends is extremely encouraging. Over the course of his career in an offensive coordinator or head coaching role, Shurmur's tight end room has averaged 8.18 targets per game.

Clearly, Pat Shurmur will give his tight ends a lot of work in the passing game, which makes Noah Fant one of the most intriguing options at the tight end position outside of Travis Kelce, George Kittle, and Darren Waller. In addition, Albert Okwuegbunam could have some value if Fant ends up missing any time during the season.

Fantasy Relevant Players: Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater, Javonte Williams, Melvin Gordon III, Royce Freeman, Mike Boone, Courtland Sutton, KJ Hamler, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, Seth WilliamsAlbert Okwuegbunam, and Noah Fant

 

2021 Defense

2021 Head Coach: Vic Fangio

Vic Fangio had to wait a long time for his first head coaching opportunity, but that opportunity finally came in 2019 when he was hired to be the newest head coach of the Denver Broncos. Prior to joining the Broncos, Fangio was a defensive coordinator in the NFL for the Carolina Panthers (1995-1998), Indianapolis Colts (1999-2001), Houston Texans (2002-2005), San Francisco 49ers (2011-2014), and Chicago Bears (2015-2018). Let's take a look at some of Fangio's defensive statistics over the past couple of years, as well as over the course of his career.

Year Games Points Allowed Pass Yds Given Up Run Yds Given Up Plays Against Yds/Play Turnovers Forced
2019 Broncos 16 19.75 225.56 111.44 62.69 5.38 1.06
2020 Broncos 16 27.88 237.94 130 65.19 5.64 1
Fangio's Career Averages (DC/HC) 336 21.42 218.34 113.87 63.33 5.25 1.58

 

2021 Defensive Coordinator: Ed Donatell

Ed Donatell has been working with Vic Fangio for a long time and has helped lead some great defenses over the course of his career. Prior to being hired as the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator in 2019, Donatell had previously served as a defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers (2000-2003) and Atlanta Falcons (2004-2006) and also worked in the secondary with the Denver Broncos (2009-2010), San Francisco 49ers (2011-2014), and Chicago Bears (2015-2018). Let's take a look at some of the team defensive statistics of some of Donatell's teams during his time as a defensive coordinator.

Year Games Points Allowed Pass Yds Given Up Run Yds Given Up Plays Against Yds/Play Turnovers Forced
2019 Broncos 16 19.75 225.56 111.44 62.69 5.38 1.06
2020 Broncos 16 27.88 237.94 130 65.19 5.64 1
Donatell's Career Averages (DC/HC) 144 20.78 213.56 113.54 63.31 5.17 1.83

Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell's career defensive statistics have been pretty great overall, with especially strong numbers in points allowed, passing yards given up, yards allowed per play, and turnovers forced. However, the poor performance by the Broncos defense in 2020 does raise some concern about the type of performance we should expect from the team for the 2021 season. Considering many of the team's star defensive playmakers were out with injuries for a significant portion of the regular season last year, it's probably best to chalk 2020 up as a mulligan and expect a return to solid play going forward. Based on this information, the Denver Broncos D/ST is a strong bounce-back candidate for the 2021 season and could be a sneaky defense pick late in your fantasy draft.
