Denver Broncos

AFC West

Fantasy Impact: Heath was claimed by the Broncos last season after he was released by the Texans. He played in Houston for three years prior to his release. Heath only has 34 tackles and three sacks during his three-year career, but the product out of Michigan State will get an opportunity to further his career as a defensive end in Denver.

Former Broncos S Will Parks has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A homecoming for the former 2016 sixth-round selection out of Arizona. Parks is from Philadelphia and went to Germantown HS. He’ll look to bolster up the Eagles secondary after playing four seasons with the Broncos. The Eagles are in need of safety help after losing Malcolm Jenkins in free agency to the Saints.

QB Joe Flacco has been told he’ll be waived by the Broncos with a failed physical designation. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Flacco started just eight games in 2019 for the Broncos, and after one year with the team, he is on his way out. The former Super-Bowl MVP is now a free agent and will look to join a team that needs a veteran presence on the offensive side of the ball. The Broncos appear to be handing the reigns over to QB Drew Lock, who impressed late last season after stepping in for Flacco.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports the Broncos have decided to franchise tag Justin Simmons. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Simmons and the Broncos will look to secure a long-term deal, but for now the 26-year old safety will remain in Denver for at least one more season. He recorded 93 tackles (65 solo), four interceptions and 15 passes defensed over 16 games in 2019. Simmons is one of the top safeties in the league, and is expected to command around $11-$13 million annually per season.

Speaking with the media about a potential contract extension with running back Phillip Lindsay, Broncos general manager John Elway said “we’ll see where everything falls after free agency, after the draft (and) how much money we have. We would like to be able to do something. Obviously, Phillip’s been great. If we can do something, we’ll try.” (Source: The Denver Post)

Fantasy Impact: As an undrafted free agent, Lindsay could sign an extension this year versus the need to wait until after his third year. Lindsay is currently in line to play for close to the league minimum in 2020 at a position that is notorious for short careers and injuries. Of course, if he turns in another strong campaign in 2020 his price would only go up in 2021. It will be interesting to see what the team does with Lindsay, who has made no indication that he will hold out for a new deal. Lindsay is currently the RB24 in our early expert consensus rankings.

While Bradley Chubb won't be ready for OTAs, he is expected to return for training camp, according to the Broncos. (Source: James Palmer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chubb's 2019 season ended early due to an ACL injury, but the hope is that he'll be able to return for the 2020 season and be full-go for training camp. The former fifth-overall pick only saw the field for four games in 2019 after accruing 12 sacks in 16 contests in 2018, his rookie season.

Broncos general manager John Elway told reporters that second-year player Drew Lock will continue to be the team's starting quarterback in 2020. (Source: Mike Klis on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lock showed some flashes in 2019, throwing five touchdown passes over his first two NFL games. However, he was less inspiring down the stretch with QBRs of 52.0 or less in each of his final three contests. While Lock isn't likely to be relevant in 1QB redraft leagues in 2020 -- currently QB27 based on our expert consensus -- he is an interesting player in dynasty leagues, especially those that use two quarterbacks.

The Denver Broncos D/ST allowed 477 yards and had two sacks and one fumble recovery in a 16-15 win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the best fantasy day for the Broncos Sunday as they allowed big yardage to the Raiders while posting just two sacks and one turnover. They did manage to repeatedly turn Oakland away in the red zone to come away with their fourth win in the last five games. This unit will be drafted as a top-12 option next season.

Brandon McManus was 3-for-4 on field goal and 1-for-1 on extra point attempts in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: McManus heads into next season as a potential fantasy starter if Denver can find more consistency on offense through developing Drew Lock and upgrading the offensive line.

Category: Game Recaps

DaeSean Hamilton had five receptions for 65 yards on six targets in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hamilton lead Denver in receiving Sunday and was second in targets. He will merit late-round consideration in drafts next season if Denver does not bring in another option to play along with Courtland Sutton.

Category: Game Recaps

Tim Patrick had one reception for 14 yards on two targets in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Patrick was well behind Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton in targets Sunday and does not merit fantasy consideration.

Category: Game Recaps

Noah Fant had one reception for four yards on two targets in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another terrible game for Denver's promising rookie tight end. Despite his struggles at the end of the season, he flashed enough to merit low-end TE1 status heading into next season.

Category: Game Recaps

Royce Freeman rushed twice for a loss of four yards and brought in his only target for eight yards in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Freeman is clearly playing second fiddle to Phillip Lindsay and will enter next season as nothing more than a handcuff.

Category: Game Recaps

Courtland Sutton had four receptions for 52 yards on eight targets in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Sutton had a mediocre stat line in Sunday's finale for the Broncos but will enter next season as a low-end WR1.

Category: Game Recaps

Kareem Jackson had a monster performance on Sunday, recording six solo tackles, five assisted tackles, one TFL, three passes defended, one interception, and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown, helping lead the Broncos to a 38-24 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: If you had the foresight to start Jackson, your team would surely be benefitting from the highest scoring IDP from the morning games. His touchdown came on a bizarre sequence of events, as Alexander Johnson dislodged the ball from Keke Coutee, Jeremiah Attaochu picked up the loose ball, then handed it off to Jackson, who returned it 70 yards. Though he had his best game of the year, it'll be hard to trust Jackson next week against the Chiefs.

Derek Wolfe suffered an apparent left elbow dislocation in the fourth quarter of a 23-20 win over the Chargers and will get an MRI on Monday to confirm his injury. Up until that point, Wolfe had recorded two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, two TFLs, two sacks, and three QB hits.

Fantasy Impact: Wolfe stepped up in the absence of Von Miller and had a major impact on this game, disrupting Chargers' quarterback Phillip Rivers all day. Wolfe set a new career-best with his seven sacks on the season, though it may be overshadowed by his possible season-ending injury. With pass-rusher Bradley Chubb already out for the year, Denver may have problems getting to Deshaun Watson next week.

Category: Injury Updates, Game Recaps

Jeff Heuerman had three receptions for 15 yards on five targets in the Broncos' 23-20 win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Heuerman saw two more targets than Noah Fant Sunday but only managed 15 yards. He is best avoided for the fantasy playoffs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller (knee) is up in the air for Week 13 but is "trending in the right direction" to play. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rapoport is suggesting that Miller is "50/ 50" to play in Sunday's tilt against the Chargers. And while he may be "trending in the right direction," nothing is certain. If Miller sits, the Chargers offense, more so, their passing game, will have a much easier time getting by in Week 13.

Category: Injury Updates

Brandon Allen completed 10-of-25 passes for 82 yards with one interception in the Broncos' 20-3 loss to the Bills Sunday. He added two rushes for eight yards.

Fantasy Impact: Allen was absolutely horrible Sunday and it wouldn't be at all surprising to see Denver turn to Drew Lock for next week's game against the Chargers.

Category: Game Recaps

Todd Davis put up nine solo tackles, four assisted tackles, and one TFL, but the Broncos lost to the Bills, 20-13.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has provided a steady floor each week with his ability to get a solid amount of tackles but doesn't really excel at anything else. He can be a low-upside pick if you are in dire need of help, but there are likely better options out there.
