Denver Broncos Fantasy Football News 2019

Former Texans DB Kareem Jackson has agreed to a 3-year deal with the Broncos. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it'll pay out $33 million, with $23 million of that guaranteed. Jackson spent time at both CB and safety with the Texans, primarily lining up at corner. He finished 2018 as the #14 graded CB by Pro Football Focus, garnering his best PFF grade since 2014. We'll see where Jackson lands in Denver's defense, heading into his age-31 season.

The Broncos are set to hire Vic Fangio as their HC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fangio has 14 seasons of experience as an NFL defensive coordinator but has never been a HC at any level. We'll see who he tabs to run his offense.

Update: Denver has named Gary Kubiak its new OC. Kubiak has 22 seasons of experience as an NFL HC or OC, including 13 with the Broncos. He's landed an impressive 19 units inside the top 16 in total yards and 11 in the top 5.

Broncos OLB Von Miller (ankle) and ILB Brandon Marshall (knee) are active for today's game against the Chiefs.

Broncos OLB Von Miller (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. HC Vance Joseph said Miller will be in the lineup, though, according to Pro Football Talk. If you're planning to use Miller, then he should be good to go. LB Brandon Marshall (knee) is also questionable. He has become a weak IDP contributor.

Broncos LB Todd Davis (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Jets. He's a decent flex option for IDP leagues that allow 4+ LBs into weekly lineups.

Broncos LB Todd Davis (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall is active for today's game against the Ravens. He entered the day questionable with a knee injury but looks OK for normal IDP usage. Marshall sits in LB3 range at best, playing less than 100% of defensive snaps so far.

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens with a knee injury. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited workout Friday. A active Marshall will not be worth trusting in most IDP leagues in Week 3. Rookie Josey Jewell would likely start in his place if Marshall's inactive.

The Broncos spent the 5th pick of the NFL Draft on N.C. State DE Bradley Chubb. We'll see exactly how he fits into Denver's front, though Chubb seems more likely to stay at DE rather than OLB -- where Denver already sports Von Miller and Shane Ray. Chubb's arrival should certainly help the team defense and presents plenty of IDP upside. He racked up 10 sacks each of the past 2 seasons and tallied 44 total tackles for loss over that span.

The Broncos have ruled S Justin Simmons out for Thursday night's game against the Colts because of an ankle injury he suffered while celebrating during Sunday's win over the Jets. The Denver Post reports that Simmons is also likely to land on IR. That's not a huge loss for IDP owners or the defense but could further hamper the Broncos' TE coverage, an area that has been a defensive weakness anyway. Simmons' status is good news for Colts TE Jack Doyle this week.

Broncos DT Domata Peko (knee) and DE Derek Wolfe (neck) each left Sunday's loss to the Raiders on a cart and did not return. Each player will face further testing on Monday. Neither would be a big loss for IDP owners, but losing them would hurt an already shaky defense.

Broncos OLB Shane Ray (wrist) and DT Domata Peko (illness) are active for today's game against the Raiders. Both entered today questionable. Both are also low-level IDP options, at best, that you shouldn't have been waiting on.

Broncos ILB Todd Davis (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. He missed the past 2 weeks but appears ready to return. We'll see what his playing time looks like. He topped out at 83% in Week 6 but has reached 60% just 1 other time.

Broncos ILB Todd Davis (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. That can only help the tackle outlook for fellow ILB Brandon Marshall.
