Denver Broncos Fantasy Football News 2019

Broncos LB Todd Davis is questionable for Sunday's game agains the Bears. He put in limited practices all week after missing Week 1 with the calf injury that kept him out all summer. We'll see about Davis' status Sunday afternoon, but IDP owners shouldn't plan on using him in most cases.

Broncos LB Todd Davis is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Raiders. Davis missed nearly all of training camp and the preseason with a calf injury that continued to keep him out of practice over the past week. His absence hurts a thin Denver LB depth chart but boosts the IDP upside of fellow ILB starter Josey Jewell. Elsewhere on the defense, slot CB Bryce Callahan is questionable with a foot injury that limited his practice participation all week. That's good news for Raiders rookie slot WR Hunter Renfrow, who sports some deep PPR upside.

Broncos LB Todd Davis expects to be ready for the regular-season opener next Monday night, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. Davis has been out of practice since suffering a calf injury on the 1st day of training camp. We wouldn't plan to use him in IDP lineups for that 1st game against the Raiders. But Davis cracked the top 20 among fantasy LBs last season and is worth rostering in leagues of at least moderate depth.

Broncos ILB Todd Davis suffered a partial tear in his right calf and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. That leaves Denver sorting through inexperienced backups to play next to 1st-time starter Josey Jewell. Davis' timeline still puts him in play for the regular-season opener. We'll see how ready he is come late August. Jewell, meanwhile, looks like a potential sleeper for IDP fantasy football drafts. If you've seen our LB rankings, then you already know that's how we view him.

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.
