(12/15/14) Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury, the Denver Post reports. Trevathan was activated prior to Sunday's game after missing 11 of Denver's first 13 games with two separate fractures in his left knee. He re-aggravated the injury in his first game back in Week 15 against San Diego.
Marshall is in the midst of his most productive season in the league, posting 113 total tackles and two sacks on the year.
Denver will face the Bengals in Week 16.
Broncos defense keeps rolling
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) The Broncos DST unit continued their strong run in Week 15, in a 22-10 win over the Chargers.
The Broncos held the Chargers to just 288 yards of total offense, and allowed just two scoring drives in all. They forced a pair of turnovers, both on interceptions from Philip Rivers, though failed to sack the quarterback in the game.
The Broncos are in the midst of their best stretch of the season, having recorded at least 12 Fantasy points in each of the last three games. They will look to keep the streak up in Week 16, with the Bengals on the way, and should be worth starting for Fantasy purposes for that matchup.
Another big day for Broncos DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/14) Coming off a Week 13 performance in which it equaled its season high in Fantasy points, the Broncos DST had another fine showing Week 14 against Buffalo. It allowed 415 yards as the Bills spent most of the day playing catchup, but only 17 points. The Broncos also had four sacks and three takeaways, including two interceptions and one fumble.
According to standard CBSSports.com scoring, the performance yielded the Broncos DST 14 Fantasy points, giving it just six games with double-digit Fantasy points this season but two in a row. It did OK against the Chargers, its Week 15 opponent, back in Week 8, giving up 21 points on 306 yards, but you'll find safer options in 12-team leagues.

The Broncos DST is hoping that a lot of money spent in the offseason can lead to positive results this year. The Broncos added three high profile players on defense this offseason in DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, and they also spent their first-round pick on cornerback Bradley Roby. They lost Champ Bailey, but the upgrade with the younger Talib should help at cornerback. If Von Miller (ACL) can return at 100 percent than the Broncos should have a much-improved pass rush, and the Broncos DST should be able to improve from their No. 13 finish last season when they had 17 interceptions, 41 sacks, nine fumble recoveries and five touchdowns. We like the Broncos DST as a No. 1 Fantasy option, and they should be drafted with a late-round pick in all leagues.
