2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Denver Broncos

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Denver Broncos.



Case Keenum575.2373.9414123.613.842.2143.51.31.6251.39
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, but Keenum is a viable streaming option who should have a handful of solid performances in 2018.
Paxton Lynch4.62.8290.
Chad Kelly1.20.780000000.32

Running Backs


Devontae Booker179.8674.35.427.9242.70.62.5122.7
With the Broncos releasing C.J. Anderson this offseason, Booker seems poised to enter the season as the starter, but I'm not sure that he'll end the season as the team's lead back. The Broncos used a third-round pick on Royce Freeman, who could/should overtake Booker at some point during the season.
Royce Freeman169.6720.85.912.
Booker may enter the season as the lead back, but it's more than possible that Freeman becomes that guy at some point during the season. 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.
De'Angelo Henderson35.5127.80.711.186.60.4028.04
Andy Janovich6.716.10.34.842.20.208.83
David Williams4.413.60.116.5002.61

Wide Receivers


Demaryius Thomas93.31231.67.50001.6164.96
DT is coming off his worst season (83/949/5) since breaking out in 2012. 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 90 catches and 1,200 yards seems reasonable with steadier quarterback play.
Emmanuel Sanders77.51038.
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 approaches that level of production with Keenum under center.
Courtland Sutton37.8480.12.60001.261.21
Highly productive at SMU, Sutton should get opportunities in three-wide sets for the Broncos, but he isn't on the re-draft radar (in standard-sized leagues) barring an injury to either Thomas or Sanders.
Carlos Henderson20.9267.
DaeSean Hamilton11134.20.80000.317.62
Jordan Taylor7.590.80.60000.411.88
Isaiah McKenzie2.926.70.10000.14.87
