The Broncos are coming off a historic offensive season that carried them to the Super Bowl where they were promptly shut down by the Legion of Boom. One thing that can be easily lost in their massive fantasy football point output was that Denver ran the ball enough to transform Knowshon Moreno from a fantasy disappointment to the #5 scoring RB in standard leagues last season.
The reason that there isn’t a Broncos RB higher than 10th on my top 80 list is definitely not due to the offensive system which is a fantasy machine for everyone involved. The question is who will be involved since there is a definite lack of proven options in the Denver backfield.
Whoever gets the carries in Denver will face defenses focused on stopping Peyton Manning and should find plenty of space to operate. They’ll also get plenty of chances to score since the Broncos offense is so incredibly efficient. So the big question when it comes to Broncos RB is how high to you rank unproven options that have huge upside in a great offense.
Here’s where I put each of the Broncos RB in my top 80 and a quick forecast on what I expect from them from a fantasy football perspective this season.
