August 31. Not really a significant date for most. However, August 31st is the deadline for final roster cuts for all NFL teams, leaving players secure in their position or job hunting and heartbroken.

Broncos keep RB C.J. Anderson, release Lance Ball

The Denver Broncos decided Friday that undrafted rookie C.J. Anderson’s short preseason showing was good enough to land him a spot on the 53-man roster. Anderson, who rushed for 69 yards on 15 carries in the Broncos preseason opener at San Francisco, will take the spot of veteran 

2013 Fantasy Football Team Preview: The Denver Broncos

Note: This piece was originally written on July 14th by Matt Cott of and is one of many unique pieces that can be found in our 2013 fantasy football draft guide. None of this information has been updated since it was originally published. The Broncos lost Tebow and quickly became one of the best offenses in the NFL last season. They scored the second most points...

Denver Broncos not looking back

What a week. Football is back, and life is alright again. Last night, I got filled up on smoked chicken and a few Bud Lights and got to watch the Montana Grizzlies beat Appalachian State 30-6 under the lights of the Big Sky. Well, more accurately, under the newly installed stadium lights. Having said that, I have neglected the Denver Broncos this week. I got updates on my phone...

Ronnie Hillman, Julius Thomas announced as starters for Broncos

While the rest of the NFL announced roster cuts Saturday the Denver Broncos gave us some tasty depth chart news. The team's official website announced that Julius Thomas was named the Broncos' official starting tight end and Ronnie Hillman remains first in line at running back. It's not a surprise that Hillman got the nod despite his three preseason fumbles. He took...

Ronnie Hillman Fumbles; Montee Ball Recovers

Denver Broncos running backs must be able to pass protect for quarterback Peyton Manning. As Ronnie Hillman found out being the teams best pass blocker is not enough to keep you on the field. Hillman established himself early in training camp as the best pass blocking running back on the Broncos roster. Rookie Montee Ball struggled early in camp to pass protect and it continued...

A league of their own: AFC West poised for breakout year

The AFC West has been a joke for close to decade. Although possessing four of the most rabid fan bases, even the most zealous fan would admit that the AFC West has resided on the soft underbelly of not only the AFC, but the NFL as a whole in recent memory. Looking factually, the West hasn’t had an AFC Championship representative since 2007 and hasn’t had a Wild Card team since...

Broncos backup QB, looks sharp vs. Cardinals

There is a future quarterback plan at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters although John Elway would never dare draw it on paper. Wouldn't want any visible evidence for Peyton Manning to see. But if the laws of mortality hold the day will come when Manning now 37 no longer is the Broncos' starting quarterback. If it can happen in Indianapolis it can happen here. That...

The Ravens are going to get knocked off their high horse in Denver on opening night. Week 1 picks.

The Ravens played great in the playoffs last season beating the top AFC team on their way to the Super Bowl.  I've been very hard on Joe Flacco in the past but I gave him credit for leading them to a championship.  Now that we're heading into a new season, my criticism of Flacco remains.  He's lost Boldin and Pitta, not to mention Rice isn't getting any younger...

Thin at linebacker, the Denver Broncos claimed Adrian Robinson off waivers from Philadelphia on Sunday and released fullback Jacob Hester.

Ronnie Hillman Will Start Week 1

According to Gregg Rosenthal of, the Broncos announced that Ronnie Hillman will start at running back in Week 1.Fantasy Spin:Hillman took most of the first-team reps in training camp but fumbled three times this preseason. Denver will use a committee of Hillman, rookie Montee Ball and Knowshon Moreno. Ball has the highest upside long term.
