Broncos DST beginning to stand out


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) After back-to-back standout performances against the Cardinals (who didn't have their starting quarterback at the time) and the Jets (who haven't had a starting quarterback in ages), the Broncos defense kept the ball rolling in Week 7, only this time against a 49ers team that had just hung 31 on the Rams in Week 6.

The Broncos limited Colin Kaepernick and company to 17 points on 310 yards, recording one interception and a season-high six sacks, including three by DeMarcus Ware and two by Von Miller. They've now allowed an average of 18.0 points on 243.0 yards over their last three games, recording a total of 13 sacks.

Because the Broncos are so good offensively, you might expect them to play a soft defense that doesn't sweat yardage surrendered in garbage time, but that hasn't been the case. The Broncos haven't allowed 400 yards in a game since Week 1 against the Colts, and they have yet to allow more than 26 points in a game.

The Broncos DST is looking like the kind you can play in Fantasy even when the matchup is less than favorable. Week 8 against San Diego might be pushing it a bit, though. If you don't want to roster two DSTs, you shouldn't feel like you have to make a change, but the Broncos DST may not project as a top-12 unit for that matchup.


Broncos DST makes most of matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) One week after allowing a season-low 215 yards to the Cardinals, the Broncos outdid themselves Week 6 at the Jets, allowing just 204 yards and 17 points, which equaled a season low.

It was the kind of performance that was expected to some degree given the Jets' struggles this season. They've now allowed the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs this season.

The biggest play for the Broncos defense was a 22-yard interception return by Aqib Talib late in the fourth quarter. It was their first touchdown on the defensive side of the ball this season. They also recovered a fumble and recorded a season-high four sacks.

Obviously, the Broncos have benefited from good matchups the last two weeks, but they have enough playmakers on the defensive side of the ball for their DST to remain a factor Week 7 against San Francisco. It's not a must-start Fantasy unit, but it's a serviceable one.


Broncos LB Von Miller stuffs stat sheet and Geno Smith


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Broncos linebacker Von Miller was the leading contributor to a strong defensive effort Sunday in a defeat of the host Jets.

Miller racked up six tackles, including two of the team's four sacks. He had four hits on quarterback Geno Smith and added one pass defensed.


Broncos take advantage of Cardinals' weakness


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Already without their starting quarterback, the Cardinals played most of the second half without their backup Week 5 at Denver when Drew Stanton went down with concussion-like symptoms early in the third quarter. The Broncos DST took advantage, not only limiting the Cardinals to 20 points on 215 yards but also recording three sacks.

The 215 yards were 165 better than their previous season best. The three sacks tied a season high.

The Broncos DST has forced only three turnovers this season, but it's been a steady Fantasy unit otherwise. It could be in for its best performance of the season Week 6 at the Jets, who were just shut out by the Chargers in Week 5.


Danny Trevathan expected to start vs. Arizona


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan, who has missed the first three games due to a knee injury, is expected to start in Week 5 against the Cardinals, John Fox told the media on Monday, per the Denver Post.

"Danny has tremendous speed and explosion. I have seen him progress every season, every game," coach John Fox said Monday. "I thought Brandon Marshall stepped in and did a real good job. But we welcome back Danny."


Danny Trevathan on track for Week 5 return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan, who has missed the first three games due to a knee injury, was able to practice Tuesday and Wednesday. He remains on track to return to the Broncos' lineup in Week 5 against the Cardinals.

"I feel good, just getting ready, man, keep grinding my way back," Trevathan said, per ESPN. "Just working to get back in there. … I can’t wait." 


Von Miller notches sack in Week 2 win vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Broncos linebacker Von Miller racked up seven total tackles and a sack in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.

Miller was held to just one tackle and no sacks in the season opener but fared better Sunday. Unfortunately, he did leave the game with a groin injury in the second half, according to the Denver Post. Miller may be limited in practice this week depending on the extent of the injury. The Broncos travel to Seattle in Week 3 for a Super Bowl rematch.


Broncos DST can't come up with turnovers in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Broncos DST managed just two sacks and no turnovers in the team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.

It was a disappointing result for the defensive unit, matching up against an offensive line that looks more exploitable than last year's group. They gave up 28 first downs to the Chiefs offense, allowing 11 successful conversions on 16 third-down attempts. The 2-0 Broncos have a tough test ahead in Week 3 with a trip to Seattle on the docket.


Brandon Marshall registers game-high 10 tackles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Playing for the injured Danny Trevathan (knee), Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall recorded a game-high 10 tackles in the Week 1 win over the Colts. Marshall made eight solo stops and two tackles for loss and also broke up a pass.

According to Pro Football Focus, Marshall missed only one tackle.


DeMarcus Ware pays immediate dividends


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware made an immediate impact for his new team, racking up 1.5 sacks in the Week 1 win over the Colts. Ware looked fully healthy after battling injuries last year.

In addition to the sacks, Ware hurried quarterback Andrew Luck three times. Ware faces the Chiefs at home Week 2.


David Bruton dealing with dislocated shoulder


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Broncos linebacker David Bruton suffered a dislocated shoulder Sunday against the Colts, coach John Fox told reporters Monday. He is day to day moving forward, with the team's next game set for Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Broncos DST shows off new look


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The revamped Broncos DST pressured Colts quarterback Andrew Luck into some mistakes Week 1. The unit hit Luck six times, getting 1.5 sacks from defensive end DeMarcus Ware and another sack from linebacker Nate Irving.

Safety Rahim Moore intercepted a pair of deflected passes. Linebacker Brandon Marshall, replacing the injured Danny Trevathan, made a game-high 10 tackles, two for loss, and broke up a pass. Denver stuffed Luck on a 4th-and-goal sneak attempt from the 1.

The rejuvenated Broncos DST gets a juicy matchup Week 2 when the Chiefs visit Denver.


Rahim Moore picks off a pair


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Broncos safety Rahim Moore intercepted two deflected passes in the Week 1 win over the Colts.

Moore, who had two interceptions all of last season, got his first pick in the first quarter when Andrew Luck overthrew tight end Dwayne Allen and corner Aqib Talib tipped it. In the fourth quarter, tight end Coby Fleener couldn't handle a high throw from Luck and Moore dove for the interception.

Moore added three tackles. He'll play the Chiefs in Week 2.


Four on Broncos D listed as probable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Broncos enter Week 1 against the Colts mostly at full health, as all but two players listed on the injury report for Sunday's game are expected to play.

On the defensive side of the ball, defensive backs Chris Harris (knee) and Kayvon Webster (ankle) are joined by defensive linemen Malik Jackson (not injury related) and Terrance Knighton (knee) as probable for the game. All four should be available to play, after getting through all of practice throughout the week. 


Tony Carter exits game with neck injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Broncos defensive back Tony Carter left Saturday's preseason game against the Texans with a neck injury, per ESPN. He was involved in a collision with fellow defensive back Omar Bolden in the third quarter and was unable to return. He finished the game with two total tackles prior to the injury.

Von Miller expected to make return Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Broncos linebacker Von Miller should make his preseason debut Saturday against the Texans, almost exactly eight months to the day since he tore his ACL, the Denver Post reports.

"I've had a lot of practice at full speed," Miller said. "And with all the practicing here with the Texans, I think it will help make the game seem a little easier. I'm excited."

The Broncos have been practicing with the Texans in recent weeks. Miller is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, and Saturday could be the only tuneup he needs, with just one preseason game left. 


DeMarcus Ware gets to the QB in preseason opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Broncos defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware shined in his preseason debut Thursday against the Seahawks.

Ware played just in the first quarter of the game, but recorded a sack and two quarterback hurries in the game.

Ware joined the Broncos after being a salary cap casualty for the Cowboys. He is also recovering from offseason elbow surgery and coming off a career-low six sack season. 


Broncos signs former Browns DE Brian Sanford


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Aqib Talib only guaranteed one year


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) The Broncos gave defensive back Aqib Talib a massive six-year, $57 million contract in free agency, but have an out if things don't go well in the first year. According to USA TODAY Sports, just the first $11.5 million of Talib's contract is fully guaranteed, so the team could get out of the contract with just a $4 million cap hit in 2015.

Talib's deal also includes $13 million in combined base salaries for 2015 and 2016, however they are only guaranteed in the event of injury. He is scheduled to make an extra $500,000 in 2014 if he plays all 16 games, something he has yet to do in his NFL career. 


Broncos pull off stunner, sign Aqib Talib


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Broncos' defense proved their undoing last season, so they have set about rebuilding the unit in free agency. The Broncos signed defensive back Aqib Talib to a six-year deal worth $57 million according to ESPN.com Tuesday, with $26 million in guaranteed money.

Talib has enjoyed a career resurgence in two years with the Patriots, finishing 2013 with four interceptions and 41 tackles in 13 games en route to a Pro Bowl selection. 


Denver in the lead for DeMarcus Ware's services


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) The Broncos have emerged as the frontrunner to land recently released defensive end DeMarcus Ware, according to a report form ESPN.com Tuesday.

Ware was only notified by the team of his impending release Tuesday, given his $16 million salary cap hit for the 2014 season. The process is moving quickly for the 31-year-old, seven-time Pro Bowler, despite recording just six sacks last season, the lowest total of his career.

LaCanfora: Champ Bailey will get new deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is expected to get a new contract in the near future to restructure his deal, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that there's "no way" Bailey is making $9 million in 2014, which would cost the Broncos $10 million against the cap. LaCanfora writes that the Broncos will look to sign him to a lesser deal at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Bailey played in just five games in 2013 with 14 tackles and no interceptions. It was the first time in his career he failed to record an interception.
