RB Trent Richardson UP
So much for him being injury prone. Trent Richardson is, by all accounts, having a phenomenal pre-season and Training Camp and has gotten himself down to 225 pounds and in phenomenal shape. With Norv Turner as his offensive coordinator, he’s locked into a massive workload and should surpass the 318 touches he had last season. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry last year thanks to injuries sapping his effectiveness, but he’s much more talented than that and he has a very strong offensive line in front of him.
Projection: 280 carries for 1260 rushing yards 11 total touchdowns 56 catches for 450 receiving yards (237 pts standard, 293 pts PPR)
WR Kenny Britt DOWN
I liked Kenny Britt as a sleeper because he was getting through the off-season without any off the field incidents or any injury problems. However, he’s going to miss the Titans’ final pre-season game with recurring knee problems and has reportedly had problems with swelling for a while. He might just n...

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Broncos rookie running back Montee Ball was working with the starting offense today.
Yes, it was RB Montee Ball working with Peyton Manning's first-team offense. Ronnie Hillman was carrying around a football everywhere.

With the regular season under two weeks away, it looks like Ball may end...
Denver Broncos fans will have to see Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco around Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Downtown Denver for over a week as the NFL puts up signage to promote its annual Kickoff
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning spent over a decade in Indianapolis and he would wave his arms up and down, the stadium would get quiet. No, it’s not an egotistical thing, Manning is one of the greatest at the line audible callers, but it doesn’t work if his offense can’t hear him. In a somewhat strange request, the QB wants the Denver faithful to ‘pipe down’ so to speak.
For a fourth straight season, Razzball will be interviewing local NFL beat writers for some actual in-depth football knowledge to shed some additional light on our fantasy football knowledge. Keep your eye out for an interview for every NFL team through the summer. This installment comes courteous of Bronco Mike from leading Denver Broncos blog Mile High Report:
1) Thanks for...
Denver safety Quinton Carter has landed on season-ending injured reserve for the second straight year.
Carter started 10 games as a rookie in 2011 and had interceptions in consecutive playoff games that year. But a torn right hamstring at an indoor practice the following summer led doctors to discover he needed surgery on his left knee. He played in just three games in 2012 before...
Top intangibles, undersized quarterback, but if Katz was three inches taller and he could be house hold name. Looks poised throwing the ball. A Top competitor. Exceptional athlete. Showed some flashes of ability as a passer. Very good runner and scrambler for a quarterback. Interesting developmental type. Has enough going for him to be considered. Catch up with Denver Broncos rookie...
According to Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com, the Denver Broncos center J.D. Walton will go from the active PUP list to the reserve PUP list, which excludes him from the roster and restricts his return to action for the first six weeks of the regular season.
John Fox swears he hasn't lost confidence in Ronnie Hillman even though the second-year running back has had back-to-back games with fumbles returned for touchdowns.
Still, it was rookie Montee Ball who got most of the work Monday with Denver's starters for the first time all summer.
''It's just practice,'' Fox said. ''I wouldn't read too...
From time to time the NFL does something smart like start the season with a marquee match-up on Thursday prior to the rest of the league kicking things off a few days later on Sunday. They also tend to do a few stupid things from time to time.
Like hang a huge banner of Joe Flacco on Mile Stadium.
I get why. Next Thursday the 2013 NFL regular season kicks off in Denver...
Let's say you are a Denver Bronco season ticket holder. You've paid thousands of dollars for the privilege of going to eight regular season games. You also know, on some level, that you are locked into this behavior, since it took you years to get them to take your money. You are so all-in for your team that you, well, agree to go to regular season games in...
A scheduling error forced the Baltimore Ravens to open the 2013 season on the road, but was a giant Joe Flacco banner outside the Denver Broncos' stadium the solution?
The Denver Broncos will return to the field in 2013 to take another shot at a Super bowl run under the command of Peyton Manning. As the Broncos add key weapons to cement themselves as one of the NFL’s elite teams, the Chiefs, Chargers and Raiders look to revamp and reload. The Broncos should have no problem mopping up the AFC West, but it will be interesting to see how the rest...
The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens are set to kick off the 2013 NFL season next Thursday in a game that will be nationally televised on NBC. As a way of promoting both teams and hyping up the first official game of the year, the NFL has put up signs and billboards around Sports Authority […]
