2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Denver Broncos

- Updated: Saturday, July 6th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Denver Broncos.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Joe Flacco434.4274.82888.814.349.7715.936.60.32158.95
Linked to Drew Lock leading up to the NFL Draft, the Broncos still got their man even though they waited until Round 2. Like last season when the Ravens drafted Lamar Jackson at the end of Round 1, it may only be a matter of time before Flacco hands the keys to the franchise over to Lock.

The Broncos ranked in the bottom half of the league in total offense, passing offense and scoring offense, so Flacco gives the team an upgrade, albeit a modest one, over Case Keenum. Over the past four seasons combined, Flacco has averaged just 6.32 Y/A, 40th out of 41 quarterbacks with at least 500 pass attempts over that span (via Pro Football Reference).
Drew Lock108.663.3781.93.583.269.633.60.2443.88
Lock may not make any starts in 2019 if the Broncos are able to stay in the playoff hunt, but I do expect Lock to make a couple of starts at the end of the season.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Phillip Lindsay207952.27.2541.83011.25176.32
From UDFA to Pro Bowler, Lindsay vastly exceeded the expectations that the fantasy community and general public had for him entering the season. Expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Lindsday (wrist) rushed for 1,037 yards (5.4 YPC), added 35 catches for 241 yards and scored a total of 10 touchdowns as a rookie. Even if the split with fellow second-year back Royce Freeman is narrower than last year's split, Lindsay should get more than the 227 touches he had as a rookie.
Royce Freeman157.1659.85.8915.282.10.15110.43
Overdrafted compared to his lofty 2018 ADP (mid-third round), Freeman carried the ball 130 times for 521 yards and five touchdowns and added 14 catches for 72 yards. With a more reasonable 2019 Fantasy Football ADP, Freeman is expected to see a boost in workload in his second season.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Courtland Sutton50.5742.44.420.840.03101.34
Perhaps I'm too conservative in my projections, but I currently have Sutton only slightly improving upon his rookie numbers (42/704/4).
DaeSean Hamilton63.2698.43.9500093.54
Over each of the final four games of last season, Hamilton had at least eight targets, five receptions and 40 yards. While he had just five total receptions before that point, Hamilton was fantasy's WR27 (and WR22 in PPR) during that four-game stretch. Of the team's top three receivers, Hamilton has the potential for the biggest year-over-year improvement and it wouldn't be a surprise if he finished as the team's most productive wideout when the season is over.
Emmanuel Sanders48.5586.92.431.310.40.1375.09
Missing four games in back-to-back years and now coming back from an Achilles injury, Sanders' rehab appears to be ahead of schedule. In only 12 games, Sanders had 71 catches on 98 targets for 868 yards (72.3/G) and four touchdowns and was the WR16 (WR15 in PPR) through Week 13 last season. Based on current ADPs, however, I'd prefer both second-year receivers -- Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton -- over Sanders.
Tim Patrick24.8319.90.992.111.60.0839.57
Juwann Winfree1.622.20.110002.88
River Cracraft0.89.60.040001.2

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Noah Fant36.7444.12.8400061.45
An athletic mismatch at tight end, Fant gives the Broncos a passing-game upgrade over Jeff Heuerman and Jake Butt even though rookie tight ends tend to struggle to make large fantasy impacts.
