Joel Dreessen, TE, Denver Broncos
School: Colorado State
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
In his first season playing for the Denver Broncos after playing numerous seasons as the second fiddle to Owen Daniels in Houston, Joel Dreessen went for a career high 41 receptions but was pretty unimpressive as only half of those went for first downs, only 4 of those were for 20 or more yards and while he did visit pay dirt a solid 5 times he only had 356 receiving yards.
Don’t expect those numbers to improve much as quarterback Peyton Manning has two great options at the wide receiver position to target as well as another tight end to toss the pigskin to. When draft day comes up, keep this former Colorado State star on the board. He should not be drafted in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

I’ve finally come to terms with how quickly the season ended for the Denver Broncos, although it ended in a rather unexpected way. The team had finally started to gel behind quarterback Peyton Manning during the second half of their week six-game in San Diego where the Chargers were dominating on both sides of the ball. The Broncos came out in the second half as a team possessed...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS

Considering the Broncos demands this week, the band may be breaking up. Dumervil signed a hefty 6 year, 61.5 million dollar contract in 2010 with the Josh McDaniels regime, just before John Elway joined the Denver front office.

We would not be surprised to see the Denver Broncos make a few splashes this offseason. Between the Darrelle Revis situation and the many big-name free agents about to hit the open market, chances are that Denver will be buzzed about this spring.
But once all of that buzz dies down, the draft will be right around the corner. The Broncos currently have...
The Denver Broncos were a few inches away from hosting the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. Just a few inches from another Brady –vs- Manning showdown; however, thanks to a misplay by safety Rahim Moore—the Broncos’ season was ended shorter then they had planned. A season that went as perfectly as President … Continue reading »
