Projected Win Total

The Broncos over/under currently sits at 7.0, after they went 6-10 last season. The additions of Joe Flacco, Noah Fant, Kareem Jackson, Bryce Callahan and Ja’Wuan James, along with the coaching change to Vic Fangio, are why the Broncos are projected to improve this season.

 

Strength of Schedule

SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

QB: 27th
RB: 11th
WR: 31st
TE: 10th

 

Passing Game

QB: Joe Flacco, Drew Lock
WR: Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick
WR: DaeSean Hamilton, Juwann Winfree
WR: Emmanuel Sanders, River Cracraft
TE: Noah Fant, Jake Butt

After a disappointing season in the passing game, I only see improvement for this unit going forward. A new veteran quarterback is only going to help the sophomore receivers, in Hamilton and Sutton, and rookie Noah Fant. You are able to get these weapons at solid value in fantasy drafts, with Sutton being taken the highest, at WR38. He has a great opportunity, and potential, to out-perform his draft position. Sutton will also be Flacco’s go-to target for is downfield bombs. Outside of Sutton, the other receivers do not provide much value in redraft leagues this season.

 

Running Game

RB: Phillip Lindsay, Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker
2018 OL Run Rank: 6th

After a strong season for the offensive line and rushing attack, it seems as if it is only going to get better. The addition of a top end O-Line coach in Mike Munchak will only make this unit better. Signing Ju’Wan James in free agency will help even out the loss of Pro Bowl center Matt Paradis. All in all, the Broncos rushing game is going to be a top five unit for the 2019 season.
