Denver Broncos

AFC West

Fantasy Impact: Gordon was considered doubtful entering the weekend. Javonte Williams should be viewed as a legitimate RB1 in his absence. The Broncos and Chiefs square off on Sunday Night Football, a prime time spot for the rookie’s highly anticipated feature back debut.

The Denver Broncos D/ST allows 13 points while recording three sacks, two interceptions, and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Chargers' QB Justin Herbert was flustered Sunday as the Broncos D/ST continued to make plays. The team was led by two Patrick Surtain II interceptions, including one that was returned 70 yards for a touchdown halfway through the fourth quarter. This D/ST continues to put up good fantasy numbers, but fantasy playoff matchups against the Bengals, Raiders, and Chargers won't be an easy feat.

Brandon McManus perfect in Week 12

Mon, Nov 29th 11:11am EST
By Lee Wehry

Broncos K Brandon McManus goes 4-for-4 on PATs in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: McManus is a very good kicker, but he finds himself on a team with a floundering offense, and the opportunities just aren't there. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere if possible.

Broncos TE Noah Fant has three receptions for 12 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Fant has scored less than ten fantasy points in five straight games and hasn't found the end zone since Week 6. He can be considered a TE2, but at this point, his fantasy value is likely touchdown dependant.

Category: Game Recaps


Broncos WR Tim Patrick has 2 receptions for 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Patrick is now the fourth option in a run-heavy offense. Moving forward he's a dart throw and his value is solely touchdown dependant.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton has two receptions for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Sutton was only targeted three times, and this marks the fourth-straight game he's recorded 40 yards or less. It seems that Jerry Jeudy's return and ultra-conservative game plans have sapped any fantasy value he once had. Hopefully, this offense can get on track in Week 13 against a Kansas City D/ST currently ranking in the bottom half of the league against the pass.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy catches two passes for 25 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Much like the backfield, this offense seems to have WRs by committee. Bridgewater completed passes to nine different players with none getting more than three receptions. Moving forward, it's hard to trust a Broncos wideout in starting lineups, the volume just isn't there.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams rushes 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown and has three receptions for 57 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Coming out of the bye, fantasy managers were hoping this would be the week that Williams took over the lead role in Denver, but that wasn't the case. Although more productive, he was out-touched by Melvin Gordon 17-to-18. He remains a viable FLEX option, but his ceiling is still lowered due to the split workload. Nevertheless, Williams has a solid matchup in Week 13 against a Chiefs D/ST that's middle of the pack against the run.

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater goes 11-of-18 for 129 yards and one touchdown and adds two rushes for 10 yards and another score on the ground in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Despite missing the second quarter with an injury, Bridgewater put together an impressive game. He made plays when it mattered and led his team to victory. Bridgewater also had a nifty 10-yard scamper for a score in the first quarter. He remains a QB2 but has a tough matchup on Sunday night in Week 13 against a surging Chiefs D/ST.

According to the team media sources, the Broncos have activated pass rusher, Bradley Chubb, off injured reserve. (Source: Broncos)

Fantasy Impact: After spending nearly the entire season on injured reserve with a knee injury, the Broncos have activated third-year pass rusher, Bradley Chubb, off injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact: Lock has been sidelined the past two games. Teddy Bridgewater will remain Denver's starter once the team returns from their Week 11 bye.

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam has three receptions for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Almost all of Okwuegbunam's receiving yards came on a single 62-yard catch and scamper early in the second quarter. His athleticism is intriguing, but with Noah Fant as the TE1 for the Broncos, his production is far from guaranteed. Okwuegbunam's real value is likely injury-based for the time being.

Defensive End Von Miller has been traded to the Los Angeles Rams, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miller will now join forces with an already impressive defensive front in LA, making this defense that much more potent. This should be viewed as a high-end defense the rest of the way that can generate lots of points off of sacks while limiting the opposing team's running game.

Broncos WR Kendall Hinton has 5 receptions for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Hinton had a decent two-game stretch, that included eight receptions and a touchdown. However, With Jerry Jeudy designated to return from IR, Hinton may have seen the last of his opportunities in Denver for now.

The Denver Broncos activated running back Mike Boone from injured reserve on Saturday. (Source: Denver Broncos on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Boone will not be relevant from a fantasy football perspective behind Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon.

Fantasy Impact: Brown could see some action on Sunday, but he is not relevant from a fantasy football perspective.

Fantasy Impact: The 21-year-old has been playing well through the first four games of his career. Surtain was eventually ruled out due to injury, and we'll monitor the practice reports on him throughout the week. His absence would certainly hurt the Broncos' defense.

KJ Hamler (ACL) placed on IR

The Broncos placed WR KJ Hamler (ACL) on injured reserve. (Source: Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: As expected. Hamler will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after tearing his ACL in Sunday's Week 3 game against the Jets. The second-year wideout should be close to full strength by the time the 2022 campaign rolls around. Courtland Sutton will continue to operate as Denver's No. 1 pass-catcher for now.

David Moore signing with Denver

The Denver Broncos have signed wide receiver David Moore from the Raiders practice squad. (Source: Brandon Krisztal on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It was expected that Denver would make a move after they lost KJ Hamler to an ACL injury. The Broncos needed depth at wide receiver behind Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick after losing both Hamler and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) to injuries early in the season. Moore likely won't be very relevant from a fantasy football perspective.

Ronald Darby, CB for the Broncos, was placed on IR with a hamstring injury. He will be out at least three weeks. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This injury allows first-round rookie Patrick Surtain to step into the starting lineup. One of the most pro-ready prospects Alabama has produced in recent memory will get to go toe-to-toe with some of the worst passing offenses in the league in JAX, NYJ, and BAL.
