Fantasy Football Stock Report: Broncos HC Gary Kubiak names a starting QB?

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

“But I think, going into the camp, I think Coach Kub kind of let us know he’s going to go with Mark [Sanchez] and give Mark the opportunity to see what he can do and then go on from there.”

It looks like the reports from earlier this week were false, as they stated that Trevor Siemian had a legit shot at being the Broncos starter. As of now, it looks like a two pony race at quarterback, with Sanchize and Siemian, with rookie Paxton Lynch far behind. If last year showed us anything, it is that the Broncos defense is good enough to carry mediocre quarterback play to a Super Bowl. CJ Anderson would be a good fantasy selection this year, especially in Kubiak’s offense and the Broncos’ defense. One would have to think that Demaryius Thomas and Emmaunel Sanders will show inconsistency, though.

“The Jets see Forte as their lead back, replacing Chris Ivory, but he is going to get plenty of rest in a rotation that includes Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson. The main question with Forte is how much tread he has left on the tire. He had a remarkable workload in Chicago. He leads the NFL in all-purpose yards (12,718) since he entered the league in 2008. Forte is now 30, which is seen by most as the point where running backs fall off the cliff. Forte is out to prove them wrong.”

We mentioned this earlier in the week that the Jets RB situation is a little muddy with Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson, and this report confirmed that notion. Forte will be the lead guy, but he could lose receptions and goal line opportunities to Powell and Robinson, which will annoy fantasy owners. Forte is being drafted at a top-15 RB and it looks like that is too high right now. Don’t be that guy.

“The 2015 first-round pick [Nelson Agholor] had a disappointing rookie season (23 catches, 283 yards), partly because of a high ankle sprain. He could blossom as the featured receiver in Pederson’s interpretation of a West Coast-style offense.”

I was high on Nelson Agholor as a rookie last season and boy, was I burned by the former Trojan. As of now, we would stay away from Agholor until he proves it on the field, but fantasy owners might give him a second chance, especially after ESPN’s Phil Sheridan labeled him as the clear Week 1 starter. He deserves a late-round flier in a deep league.

Not strictly fantasy:

  • Ben Watson was named the starting TE in Baltimore, but he has to fight off Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams and Dennis Pitta. Stay away… Stay far, far away.
  • Josh Gordon met with Fuhrer Goodell on Thursday, which is a step in the right direction towards reinstatement
  • As he should, Ray Rice claims he will donate his entire 2016 salary to a domestic violence charity if he gets a NFL contract
  • The Titans want Dorial Green-Beckham to come back to training camp in better shape. A tiger doesn’t change its stripes.
