Denver Broncos roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Denver Broncos sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Denver Broncos.

Denver’s biggest offseason moves centered around the draft, as they grabbed wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler to go along with Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant. They also picked up running back Melvin Gordon to add to their backfield. The team has weapons both on offense and defense, but second-year quarterback Drew Lock’s progress as a starter is the key to the season.

Player News

High fantasy/betting impact

* RT Ja’Wuan James opted out — August 3

James only started three games in 2019 due to a knee injury, but was expected to start at right tackle this year. This hurts the Broncos’ line depth and continuity.

* Bradley Chubb says he will be 100% for Week 1 following ACL surgery. — August 1 — Source

Chubb is a huge part of the Broncos pass rush, which was hurt last season due to his absence. A healthy Chubb elevates the Broncos defense.

Low fantasy/betting impact

* Claimed OT Darrin Paulo off waivers — August 30

* Signed WR Cody White — August 23

* Signed OT Demar Dotson — August 12

Elijah Wilkinson slots into the right tackle spot after Ja’wuan James opted out, but the team needed a backup.
