Broncos hire Vic Fangio as head coach

The Broncos are hiring former Bears DC Vic Fangio to be their next head coach.

Fantasy Impact

Fangio is the only coaching hire that has been made this off-season who has a defensive background. The 60-year-old oversaw the league’s top defense this season in Chicago. Gary Kubiak is reportedly moving from the front office back to the field as offensive coordinator. Fangio’s first mission will be to find a quarterback capable of taking Denver to the playoffs.

Broncos to fire Vance Joseph

The Broncos will fire head coach Vance Joseph.

Fantasy Impact

Joseph was at the helm for back-to-back losing seasons in Denver, and the front office elected to make a change. There are some around the organization that say John Elway is also a problem, but he'll continue to stick around while the team transitions to their next head coach. Joseph could return as a defensive coordinator as soon as 2019 if he doesn't take time off.

Denver D/ST puts up strong effort in loss to Chargers

The Denver Broncos D/ST allowed 276 yards and had two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and one sack in a 23-9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

This loss wasn't on the Denver defense. The offense gave up a fumble-recovery touchdown and two-point conversion return and turned the ball over four times. This unit will need to upgrade in the secondary in the offseason and is likely to see a coaching change.

Denver D/ST struggles in loss Oakland

The Denver Broncos D/ST allowed 273 yards and a punt-return touchdown while posting one sack in a 27-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

The Broncos failed to down a punt in the first quarter and allowed a 99-yard touchdown return to Oakland. They struggled to generate a pass-rush all night in the loss. Denver struggled to slow down Doug Martin and could not stop Oakland's short passing game Monday.

Denver Broncos expected to fire Vance Joseph

The Denver Broncos are expected to fire their head coach, Vance Joseph, at the end of the season.

Fantasy Impact

This is per a league source. There were reports that the team was considering replacing Joseph with former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan a year ago, but it's not clear who would be in line to replace Joseph at the end of the season. Joseph has posted an 11-19 record over his 30 games thus far.
