The Denver Broncos used multiple tight end sets on 83.8% of their Week 11 plays with QB Brock Osweiler under center as opposed to using three-wide receiver sets 60% of the time with QB Peyton Manning playing. TE Vernon Davis was more involved as a result, and the Broncos ground game was successful.
Fantasy Tip: There's no question that Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) becomes much more intriguing with Osweiler playing, and the tight end had his best game of the season (six catches, 68 yards) against the Chicago Bears. However, a Week 12 matchup against the New England Patriots won't be easy, meaning Davis should still be considered much more of a sleeper daily play at the position.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 13:51:58 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler took 52 of 69 offensive snaps in Week 11 under center, and he didn't turn the ball over once. He'll be facing a New England Patriots defense in Week 12 that has given up an NFL-low 182 points this year, and they are allowing just 14 points per game in their last four contests. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is 11-4 against rookie quarterbacks in his career.
Fantasy Tip: It won't be easy sledding for Osweiler ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) in his second career start against the Patriots. The smart money says you should avoid Osweiler as a sleeper play on FantasyScore.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 11:26:06 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is not Denver's permanent starting quarterback for the rest of the season, according to sources. QB Peyton Manning (foot) is expected to start again once he is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler performed well enough in Week 11 to earn another start in Week 12. Of course, the fact that Manning isn't 100% doesn't hurt his chances. Osweiler's matchup with the New England Patriots is decent, but he shouldn't be your first choice at quarterback.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:52:31 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will make another start against the New England Patriots in Week 12, according to team sources.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler was serviceable to his fantasy owners that took a chance on him in his starting debut against the Chicago Bears. He has the physical skills to succeed in Gary Kubiak's offense, but the Patriots and master planner Bill Belichick will be a tough matchup for the youngster. We don't recommend using him on FantasyScore in his second career start.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:45:05 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler went 20-for-27 for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Chicago Bears in Week 11.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler played well in his first start of the season and did not turn the ball over. He should continue to be the starter for the time being and may be a possible sleeper option against the New England Patriots in Week 12.
Fri, 20 Nov 2015 09:18:19 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler has looked really good, according to two of his teammates. "Oh, he's ready. He looks good," LB Brandon Marshall said. "He looks really good. I'm excited, and I think everybody is excited to have him out there." "He's looked excellent throughout the year. In the preseason, he looked phenomenal," added LB Von Miller. "When he got in the game, he was able to make some stuff happen, and he didn't even expect to be playing last week. That's pretty encouraging." Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said the team won't be changing the playbook at all with Osweiler set to start in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has more mobility that could actually make him a better fit for Gary Kubiak's preferred offense that features much more bootlegs and roll outs. He also possesses a much stronger arm than Peyton Manning in order to stretch the field. Osweiler could find decent success in his first career start, but he'll remain a deep sleeper on FantasyScore for now.
Wed, 18 Nov 2015 22:05:11 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is confident heading into his first NFL start in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, and head coach Gary Kubiak does not plan to water down the offense to make it simpler for the quarterback. "As far as volume of game plan and stuff, I'm very comfortable doing anything with him," Kubiak said Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be facing a Chicago Bears pass defense which actually ranks fourth in the NFL, allowing just 217.0 yards per game. So FantasyScore players looking for a bargain at the quarterback position might want to take a gander elsewhere.
Mon, 16 Nov 2015 12:51:01 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will start against the Chicago Bears in Week 11.
Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning is dealing with a partially torn plantar fascia, so this shouldn't be a big surprise. Osweiler is a decent flyer this week, but don't get your hopes too high.
Mon, 16 Nov 2015 10:11:37 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is expected to sit out some games, possibly a couple of weeks, as he battles plantar fasciitis in his foot, according to a source. QB Brock Osweiler would step in as the Broncos starter if Manning misses any games. Osweiler was 14-for-24 for 146 yards and a touchdown and an interception in relief of Manning in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Tip: Manning hasn't looked right in Gary Kubiak's offense this year and is now injured. It's probably time to cut bait in traditional leagues and look for another quarterback. Osweiler has more mobility and could be a better fit in Kubiak's offense, but he'll remain a deep sleeper based on matchup at FantasyScore.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 21:09:38 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler replaced the ineffective QB Peyton Manning in the third quarter of the Week 10 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs. Osweiler completed 14 of his 24 pass attempts for 146 yards, one touchdown and one interception while rushing three times for 18 yards.
Fantasy Tip: It's still unlikely head coach Gary Kubiak goes to Osweiler to start in Week 11 over Manning, unless his injuries keep Manning from being able to go. Manning had been dealing with a rib injury, as well as a foot issue. If Osweiler were to start in Chicago, he could have a decent game, but expect Manning.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 15:45:46 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler has replaced QB Peyton Manning (ribs) in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Tip: With Denver trailing, the team isn't going to risk Manning's health at the moment. The question right now: is it just his ribs or is there more going on? Wait and see what happens in the next day or so.
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 14:24:45 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning won't be benched in favor of QB Brock Osweiler, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. "No. Peyton is doing just fine."
Fantasy Tip: It's not all Manning's fault for the offensive struggles this year. An inexperienced and shaky offensive line hasn't helped matters, and the lack of a running game are the main culprits. The Cleveland Browns in Week 6 could help Denver's O get back on track, as they are a great matchup for the running game, and they've also allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks per game (23.9). Still, paying for Manning in daily games is hard to do until we see signs of life.
Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:10:19 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler hasn't been taking the ability to learn from QB Peyton Manning for granted. "I'd be lying to you if I said it hasn't been tough to not play over the past three years," Osweiler said Tuesday, July 7, on Yahoo! Sports Radio, "but the one thing I do know is … that I'm going to work on a daily basis with one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game and I guess I really just want to make the most of that situation," said Osweiler.
Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has a stronger arm than Manning, and he's benefited from watching one of the greatest play-callers work over the last three seasons. Osweiler should be targeted in dynasty leagues this season, as Manning is a candidate to retire before the 2016 season.
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 04:46:18 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was not the subject of talks that had him headed for the Houston Texans. Reports suggested some in the Broncos organization wanted to jumpstart QB Brock Osweiler and start the rebuilding process.
Fantasy Tip: This rumor was denied all the way to the top of the Broncos organization, including by John Elway himself. Manning will stay a Bronco for this season, and his 4,727 yards and 39 passing touchdowns suggest he will be a strong QB1 candidate and one of the first signal-callers off the board. Still, keep an eye out for injuries, as he was hampered by them late in the year.
Tue, 02 Jun 2015 14:15:59 -0700
Denver Broncos QBs Brock Osweiler and Zac Dysert received more repetitions Monday, June 1, during organized team activities as QB Peyton Manning sat out. Manning will continue to be given days off, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.
Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:20:47 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may not play as much as usual next season in order to give him more rest. Head coach Gary Kubiak has indicated that he will tailor the offense to benefit Manning, including running the ball more. Subsequently, QB Brock Osweiler could see more playing time if Manning's playing time is adjusted. Kubiak said he's impressed with how excited Osweiler is and knows he wants to play a part in the Broncos' offense. Kubiak said Osweiler's opportunity to play will come at some point. "I always tell young players nobody knows if you're taking care of your business until you're thrown in the fire."
Fantasy Tip: Manning has been an elite fantasy quarterback almost his entire career and he should still be considered as such. That being said, at age 39, he may not offer as much value as he has in previous seasons, especially with a new offense that will probably see the Broncos run the ball more often. Again, Manning should still be considered a top-tier fantasy quarterback as long as he's healthy.
Tue, 13 Jan 2015 13:44:27 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler continues to receive high reviews inside the organization as the eventual successor to QB Peyton Manning, according to sources inside the organization. Osweiler has gone 100-for-170 for 1,089 yards (6.4 yards per attempt) and a four-to-five touchdown-to-interception ratio of 12 preseason games and some mop-up appearances in the regular season since being drafted in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: We really don't know what the Broncos have in Osweiler until he sees extensive action on the field, and that could come next year if Manning retires. As far as Osweiler's fantasy value goes if he's the starter next year, he'd be a backup QB at best, with growing pains expected. Also, the likes of Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders would need to be significantly downgraded.
Sun, 19 Oct 2014 19:40:04 -0700
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning left the Week 7 game against the San Francisco early in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score.

Denver Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway said he does not regret the decision to select QB Brock Osweiler in the second round of the NFL Draft despite the acquisition of QB Peyton Manning last offseason. Elway believes Osweiler will be a franchise quarterback for many years to come. "My thought was, we wanted a guy for the future, No. 1," Elway said. "No. 2, if it didn't work out with Peyton, we could load up with a guy that we liked and who could be the guy for the next 10, 12 years. And No. 3, if Peyton did come back and play like he did, then Brock could get a great education of how things were supposed to be done as a quarterback, what you had to go through, to see one of the best of all time do it."
