2012 Team Outlook: Denver
WR Jason Hill, --- - Low Potential
Hill is new to Denver and will have to find his place in the wide out bunch. Thomas, Decker and Stokely/Caldwell seem to be locked into the depth chart, meaning the new guy is likely no more than a fill-in guy. For the Broncos, not fantasy owners.
TE Jacob Tamme, DEN - Solid/Safe Pick
Tamme follows Peyton Manning to Denver from Indy and now battles for playing team with Joel Dressen. Both have both been reported to be working with the first team, but expect Tamme to be the primary option (We might even get to see the athletic Julius Thomas if he gets worked into some plays, but...). Tamme is a solid pick with his knowlegde of the playbook and he might be favored by Manning.
TE Joel Dreessen, DEN - Deep-league Only
Dreessen joins Denver this season. He is another big TE target for Manning. I think he an Tamme will rotate in the position and be assigned to plays that best fit their skillsets. Look for Dressen and Tamme to be on draft lists. The order they go in could be interesting.
PK Matt Prater, DEN - Solid/Safe Pick
Prater kicked game-winning field goals in nearly half of Denver's 2001 campaign. He is a solid kicker who rarely misses an extra point and has just over a 78% career field goal percentage. Prater wil be worth your draft this season with a Manning led offense.
Denver Defense - Bye Week Fill-in
Denver's defense is working to iron out the wrinkles. They have plenty of speed down the sides of the field and now has to work on containment of the run and tackling. This defense has the ability they now have to put it all together. I am looking forward to seeing how this defense progresses with such a power projected offense.
