Denver Broncos - 2015 Projections

Denver Broncos

Overall Outlook
The Denver Broncos have a bad taste in their mouths after getting by Indianapolis in a home playoff game last year. The reason for the loss was Peyton Manning's injuries, which made him much less effective than earlier in the season. To correct the problem, Denver has chosen to limit Manning's attempts throughout the season to keep him fresh for January. This strategy therefore, bodes well for C.J. Anderson, who is expected to carry to running game in Denver. We project the Broncos to put up solid, more balanced numbers on offense, have decent defensive production, and believe the team will compete for an AFC title again in 2015.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: TE Owen Daniels, TE James Casey, G Shelley Smith, C Gino Gradkowski, DE/DT Antonio Smith, DE/DT Vance Walker, ILB Reggie Walker, S Darian Stewart
Key losses: WR Wes Welker, TE Julius Thomas, TE Jacob Tamme, G Orlando Franklin, C Will Montgomery, DE/DT Mitch Unrein, NT Terrance Knighton, ILB Nate Irving, S Rahim Moore

Offensive Outlook
With Peyton Manning, C.J. Anderson, Demaryius Thomas, and Emmanuel Sanders in the fold, the Denver offense will be elite again in 2015. We don't expect production as high as a few years ago, but we still see very strong output out of Denver.

Projections - 2015
QB1 - Peyton Manning - Passing - 4500 yds / 36 tds 
RB1 - C.J. Anderson - Rushing - 1100 yds / 10 tds  Receiving - 55 recs / 450 yds / 3 tds
RB2 - Montee Ball - Rushing - 250 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 20 recs / 150 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Demaryius Thomas - Receiving - 105 recs / 1475 yds / 12 tds
WR2 - Emmanuel Sanders - Receiving - 95 recs / 1150 yds / 9 tds
WR3 - Cody Latimer - Receiving - 45 recs / 525 yds / 4 tds
TE1 - Owen Daniels - Receiving - 50 recs / 600 yds / 8 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Broncos defense was very good in 2015, ranking 3rd in yards allowed and 16th in points allowed. With a unit lead by DeMarcus Ware, Von Miller, TJ Ward and Aqib Talib, we see the Broncos remaining a top 10 defense in 2015, especially late in the season, where the Broncos play four of their last six games at home.  

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Derek Wolfe - 40 total Ts / 4 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
DE2 - Malik Jackson - 35 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 1 total TO
DT - Sylvester Williams - 40 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 1 total TO
OLB1 - Von Miller - 95 total Ts / 15 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
OLB2 - DeMarcus Ware - 45 total Ts / 9 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
ILB1 - Brandon Marshall - 125 total Ts / 2 sacks / 5 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
ILB2 - Danny Trevathan -  120 total Ts / 2 sacks / 6 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
CB1 - Aqib Talib - 65 total Ts / 0 sacks / 12 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
CB2 - Chris Harris - 55 total Ts / 0 sacks / 14 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
S1 - T.J. Ward - 85 total Ts / 1 sack / 6 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
S2 - Darian Stewart -  60 total Ts / 0 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
