Denver Broncos July Scouting Report
The Broncos mini camps are over and the Broncos are off until training camp begins July 18th. Single-game tickets will go on sale July 16. Denver will travel the fewest miles in the AFC West - 14,270.
Game management is a big deal to HC Vic Fangio. He wants to be great at the end of both halves and at situational football. He likes to give his players a lot early, so by the middle of training camp, they are ready and not learning something new in camp.
What to watch in training camp: how the offensive line gels/who emerges; QB Joe Flacco to TE Noah Fant; can the defense return to top form; can Flacco be the answer at quarterback; is their a running back number 4; will there be two full backs on the roster; which young wide receivers and tight ends emerge; who will the defensive front seven be; which defensive backs will make the cut; who will be the return men? The hot spots will be wide receivers, corner backs, and tight ends. The Broncos have some promising young talent on their roster who will be the team’s key building blocks going forward: Sutton, Fant, Lock, Lindsay, Freeman, Chubb, …..
Signed third-year DL DeShawn Williams; signed three tryout players from rookie mini camp: TE Bug Howard; OL Nathan Jacobson; DL Deyon Sizer
Waived: TE Temarrick Hemingway; DL Jaylen Johnson; DL Cashaud Lyons; OT Brian Wallace.
The Broncos figure to be conservative, hurting the upside of all players. Lindsay is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. Freeman has upside as a sleeper pick. If your league has deep rosters, it’s worth it to try to draft them both. It’s difficult to see Lindsay as a long term workhorse. The defense could be a top 10 defense and a sneaky pick in 2019 as Fangio means improvement. Sutton has a lot of upside (WR2) and opportunity. Flacco and Sutton's strengths complement each other. The uncertainty of Sanders return sets Hamilton up for a breakout year and makes ER Tim Patrick a late round flier. Noah Fant could be an outlier for a quick development at tight end. K Brandon McManus is a backup kicker in fantasy, while Flacco should remain on the waiver wire.
