Denver boasted one of the league's best real-life defenses in 2022 but were sadly let down by their offense to allow them to accumulate points for fantasy football. They ended the year as the No. 28 DST, a far cry from their DVOA ranking at 10th overall. But with Sean Payton taking over as head coach, we should expect a major bounce-back effort from this defensive special teams unit. They were just one of 4 teams to fail to score a defensive TD, which is likely just bad variance. Buy back into Denver knowing they open the year with a very juicy schedule at home: Raiders and Commanders.
