Denver Broncos: Fantasy football week two advice
By Tylor Walden
Need some fantasy advice with your lineups? We take a look at popular and perhaps some unknown players, including Denver Broncos players that might help.
FOOTBALL IS BACK! Want to hit it big in daily fantasy or just want to make sure you have the right guys in your lineup? You’ve come to the right place!
This is going to take a different approach besides saying to just play your studs. Instead, this will highlight some guys you might not be thinking about or will just hammer home favorite plays/matchups of the week. I’m going to list my favorite five plays at each of the position (QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF). Welcome to the five by five!
I will break down the Broncos options first and then get right into the main analysis.
* NOTE: The main analysis will not include the Thursday, Sunday, and Monday night games as those aren’t on the main slate. I will list out my favorite plays for those at the end.
BEARS AT BRONCOS
* NOTE: I’m not a huge fan of anyone in this game besides the defenses, to be honest. Vegas has a total of 40 in this one, so somebody will score some points.
DEN: Sutton, Lindsay, Freeman, Broncos D
Courtland Sutton had himself a coming out party against Oakland on Monday night. He looked powerful after the catch. He caught with his hands instead of his chest (c’mon DaeSean!). He ran solid routes (and many of them)! He was just great and was a consistent target of Joe Flacco. If he is gonna get that kind of volume (eight of Flacco’s 31 attempts, 26% target share, most on team).
Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman are always in play with how many rushing attempts the Broncos would like to have (they still had 23 runs in a game they were trailing) but I would have to give the edge to Lindsay as he is more game script independent (had six targets, third on team).
The last three home openers for the Broncos allowed the following: 24 points to the Seahawks, 21 points to Chargers, and 21 points to the Panthers. In those games, the Broncos defense produced two, one, and one interceptions and six, one, and three sacks respectively.
Mitchell Trubisky threw a pick and allowed five sacks in his home opener. He is no Russell Wilson, Philip Rivers, or Cam Newton and the Green Bay Packers on the road are no Denver Broncos at home.
