Quarterbacks

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Case Keenum569.3370409923.313.742.5144.51.31.6248.81
Following a breakout season with the Vikings, Keenum signed a free-agent deal with the Broncos to give them their most stable quarterback situation since Peyton Manning. More than anything, however, the presence of Keenum is a boost to the fantasy value of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders although Keenum is a viable streaming option who should have a handful of solid performances in 2018.

Running Backs

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Royce Freeman201.6856.86.718.2136.50.41.6138.73
It seems likely that Freeman will become the lead guy at some point during the season even if he doesn't begin the season in that role. A four-year starter for the Ducks, the 230-pound back rushed for 5,621 (5.9 YPC) yards and 60 touchdowns in his career while adding 79/814/4 receiving.
Devontae Booker149.7568.94.624.7214.90.52.5103.98
With the Broncos releasing C.J. Anderson this offseason, Booker has a chance to enter the season as the starter even if he doesn't end the season in that role. The Broncos used a third-round pick on Royce Freeman, who should overtake Booker at some point during the season.
De'Angelo Henderson38142.50.89.372.50.4028.7
Phillip Lindsay4.519.40.15.744.50.208.19

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Demaryius Thomas83.81106.26.90001.6148.82
Thomas is coming off his worst season (83/949/5) since breaking out in 2012 (Peyton Manning's first year in Denver). Signing Case Keenum may not return Thomas to the days of 90/1,400/10 numbers he posted from 2012 to 2014, but a bounce-back campaign to the tune of 85 catches and 1,100 yards seems reasonable with steadier quarterback play.
Emmanuel Sanders76.41023.84.61.36.500.6129.43
While Sanders missed four games, his 2017 numbers (47/555/2) were nearly half of his 2016 production (79/1,032/5). Before last season, Sanders had three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and there is a reasonable chance that he bounces back with Keenum under center.
Courtland Sutton43.7557.23.50001.274.32
Highly productive at SMU and generating August buzz, Sutton is already entrenched as the team's WR3 along with Thomas and Sanders in three-wide sets. If either DT or Sanders were to miss time, Sutton could be a weekly top-36 option in those instances.
DaeSean Hamilton18.4224.51.50000.330.85
Carlos Henderson10.4134.20.72.29.700.517.59
Jordan Taylor2.631.50.20000.43.55
Isaiah McKenzie1.513.800000.12.98

Tight Ends

Jake Butt35.1393.14.20000.164.31
Fully healthy after missing all of 2017 with a torn ACL, Butt has some sleeper appeal.

Austin Traylor7.594.50.80000.114.05
