The Denver Broncos spread the ball around a ton in their week one victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Phillip Lindsay’s stock got a huge boost.
The Denver Broncos are coming off of an incredible week for fantasy football, no matter what format you play in or which player on the roster you ‘own’.
The Broncos’ offense put up 470 total yards against the Seattle Seahawks, and the defense — though it gave up some big plays to the Seattle offense — racked up six sacks, two interceptions, and a fumble recovery.
Thanks to a down week in week one from the Oakland Raiders, fantasy football owners of Denver Broncos players (or the defense/special teams) are absolutely salivating at a matchup that seems to clearly favor Denver.
Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave pulled all the right strings and even though there were some misfires from Case Keenum (three interceptions), he still managed to throw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns, which made him the ninth-best quarterback in fantasy football.
What should fantasy football players be looking at from the Broncos in week two? Is it reasonable to expect a similar level of offensive success against the Oakland Raiders?
Thanks to the Broncos’ improved personnel offensively, I think it’s more than reasonable to expect sustained success, but it will be hard for the Broncos to consistently get as many guys as involved as they did on a weekly basis, and the hot hand is sure to change.
It won’t be similar to the inconsistency of, say, New England, but the Broncos have plenty of players worth putting in the starting lineup for week two. Let’s take a look at some of the top players and whether or not they are worth starting this week.
