Broncos K Brandon McManus is not eligible to be activated from the COVID list in time for Saturday's game against the Bills, according to insider Mike Klis. So Taylor Russolino will kick for Denver in this one. Avoid the situation in fantasy lineups.

Broncos K Brandon McManus announced that he's headed to the COVID list as a close contact. If he can avoid a positive test, he'll be cleared in time for Saturday's game against the Bills. We'll keep an eye on the situation.

The Broncos have released K Brandon McManus.  He missed 4 of his 13 FG attempts this season, including 2 from under 50 yards.  Denver simply lost faith in him as their guy heading down the stretch.  We'll see who the Broncos bring in to replace McManus, but he won't be a strong fantasy option.  McManus attempted just 13 FGs in 11 games -- 30th league wide.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos are considering a kicker change.  Brandon McManus missed a 33-yarder yesterday and is now 9 for 13 (69.2%) on the season.  Denver is reportedly planning on working out kickers this week.  We'll see if they sign one, but McManus isn't a reliable fantasy option regardless.

The Broncos have traded a 7th-round pick to the Giants in exchange for K Brandon McManus.  Denver needs a kicker for the first 4 games with Matt Prater suspended.  It looks like McManus is their guy.  The rookie nailed his only 2 preseason FG attempts, 46-and 47-yarders, and has a booming leg.  He drilled a 75-yarder in practice, according to the New York Times' Bill Pennington.  McManus will be an intriguing fantasy spot starter kicker for Denver's high-powered offense.  The Giants, meanwhile are sticking with K Josh Brown.
