The Broncos have applied the franchise tag to S Justin Simmons. The 27-year-old has spent all 5 of his seasons in Denver, since arriving as a 3rd-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has spent the past 4 as a full-time starter, topping 90 tackles each of the past 3 years and collecting 12 INTs over that span. Simmons has finished each of the past 2 seasons among the top 12 fantasy DBs. Expect him to land around there in our 2021 IDP rankings.

The Broncos have placed the franchise tag on S Justin Simmons. Barring a trade, he'll remain in the role that has made Simmons a nice IDP contributor the past 2 years.

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.
