Denver Broncos McDaniels: Dawkins, Ayers, Goodman, McBath, Woodyard, Bailey, Royal, Vickerson, Lloyd won't practice. Doesn't mean they won't play Sun.

Honestly they still have not commented on the severity of McBath's injury and that's worrisome. I think he might have a high ankle sprain but that's about all I've heard...

Dawkins (knee) we know will be out until after the bye, and Ayers is out for minimum 6 weeks.

Woodyard = hamstring still

Goodman = thigh

Bailey took that shot to the ribs and is probably just recovering

Vickerson = Groin (no updates on severity)

Royal = Groin (no updates on severity)

Lloyd is probably just a veteran getting some needed rest because I hadn't heard about any injuries w/him...

This is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. Clady, Dumervil, Harris, Moreno, Buckhalter, Goodman, Dawkins, Kuper, Thomas, Decker, Ayers, Moss, McBath...

We need to scrap the injury report and start reporting on which players are actually healthy for the week.

I thought it was reported that they felt it might be closer to six weeks than three months he'd be out?

If so we could be looking at having him back for the last 6 weeks of the season if so. There's still every chance we'll still have plenty to play for in those weeks, and regardless Ayers is a guy who is really going to benefit from every bit of PT he can get so even if we're 4-7 when he comes back you want him out on the field getting used to his position.

I know injuries are a part of the game but ever since we won the back to back bowls, that's been the major story with the Denver Broncos: Major Injuries. Every year it's the same old story with this team, some years worse than others. It's as if we have been cursed or something, we are hardly ever at full strength in order to compete. This is just another one of those years that is worse than others. I feel like crying. :(

Eddie Royal-WR-Broncos Oct. 21 - 1:02 pm et

Eddie Royal (groin) is being held out of practice again on Thursday.

It's not looking good for Royal's chances of playing this week against the Raiders. Jabar Gaffney will get a slight bump in value, and rookie Demaryius Thomas' snaps will increase at the No. 3 receiver.

Could be a real big week for Thomas. He's likely going to get first team reps all week and he'll likely play a big role in the game plan since he's a much better match-up on Oakland's nickel corners than Lloyd and Gaffney on their #1 and #2 corners.

Yep can see Decker in the slot a lot this game, throw Chokeland off a bit with little game film on him at WR. Big strong tough kid with great route running and money hands could bring real match up problem for them in the slot.

Imagine Gaffney might take some of the slot load as well.Depends on whats up with Lloyd. Seriously hope thogh that both Royal AND Lloyd are not out for the game! We've got to get over this injury bug to so many key guys.

I don't think Lloyd would because they have been using him to stretch the field.

Oakland only has one good corner, I would like to see Lloyd and Bey bey stretching the field at the same time on Sunday.

Oakland has a horrible run D, this might be the spark needed to get our run game going.

Should be a combination of Decker and Thomas I would think. Thomas isn't technically the slot backup, but he's clearly the #4 WR and he's got such raw athletic talent. You can plug him in anywhere.

I don't want to see Thomas in the slot.

His body type (long & lean) is prone to injury at that position. Being hit by two tacklers which happens a lot in the slot is not a hit a long guy does well with, his long body leverage works against him. For the same reason I hope he never has return duty again.

Denario Alexander available in your league? He's going to blow up big for the Rams. He's a big, fast WR who is now stepping into a starting job, he'll be Bradford's go to guy in the red zone starting this week.

A lot of leagues list Patriot's RB Danny Woodhead as a WR (NFL.com's do and I believe ESPN.com's do as well). He's a fantastic option there since he's a safe bet for 5-10 carries and 5-10 targets in the passing game. His floor is better than almost any WR thanks to his rushing and he offers breakout potential thanks to his speed and elusiveness. Its almost a disgrace that he's still listed as a WR by most sites.

Dropped his stock isn't really the word for it.

Alexander has had four surgeries on his left knee. He couldn't pass a physical at the time of the combine and there was no guarantee that he'd ever be able to pass one. The first three were ligament issues and the fourth a cartilage problem. Signing him was the flyer of all flyers.

Which is why the home town team (the Rams, he played at Mizzou) are the ones who rolled the dice on him.

They also supposedly gave him a well above normal contract extension for a UDFA PS call up, locking him up for several years.

Yep.

On my FF team the only AFC West players I have are Broncos. I do not acquire divisional rivals and I do not start guys against the Broncos if at all possible. I'd rather lose every game in my league than ever cheer on someone opposing the Broncos.

Of course, FF is easy as hell if you know what you're doing. Its just a bunch of people throwing out their opinions on how a player with project within a statistical grading system, which makes it highly exploitable. As I pointed out before, a guy like Danny Woodhead being listed at WR is a major flaw that can easily be exploited. If he continues his 5-10 carries, 5-10 targets track of the last three games he'll be a top 25 WR in non-PPR and possibly a top 10 or 15 guy in PPR.

Sure, for casual fans. But no self respecting real fan of a team would ever let FF sway his loyalty to his team.

Its great at keeping the casual fan who has a half dozen different teams they bandwagon on interested week in and week out. I enjoy the statistical aspects of it (and as a result I think fantasy baseball is better) myself, but yes, the "fans" of a team who pull for their team to fail so a FF player can go off is weak ****.

Well to add him I have to cut either royal orBenjarvis green. I do have Chris Johnson, Jammal CHarles, Micheal Bush, Ryan Torrain so I probably could do it. I just don't like giving the league a RB who is getting touches.

I will wait until last minute. Cut Green, then maybe add Denario but I was also thinking maybe the other ram WR. Amendola?

I play in several leagues.

My Broncos come first and foremost on game day, but fantasy football adds another dimension of enjoyment to football for me.

I enjoy drafting my teams and then tinkering with them and building a team that can take me far in the playoffs.

It's something you can do with your buddies to compete in. In my big money league, it's a great way for me and lot of my old buds to keep in touch and talk some trash. Plus, I usually do well and make some extra dollars in my money leagues.

I'll draft players for Oakland, Kansas City, or San Diego....but if they are playing Denver, I would rather have my Broncos shut them down and try to win with my other players.

I have been playing since the paper and pencil, pre-Internet days....I think my first year was 1991. I am amazed at how the popularity of fantasy football has grown since then.

I don't know how anybody has time for that crap. Or the inclination.

Let me explain it then.

1) FF allows people, usually in an office, to socialize with one another and do something fun.

2) Many times there is a small to medium amount of money involved that, if you win, is a nice payout. When your odds are merely 12:1 without any other factors, that's pretty good. You dont get that in Vegas. Add to the fact that many people that play FF are pretty shrewd on who is good and can make roster moves to improve their chances to the detriment of others.

3) It promotes the viewing of other teams and other games outside of your favorite team and allows you the fan, a better understanding of all the teams in the league.

That's tough. You might want to avoid making a move this week and take your lumps, but get active trying to consolidate some of that depth into elite starters. Something like bundling an ok WR and RB together to get an elite WR for example.

And I think the game so far has answered your question on Amendola. He's their Welker/Royal type. Inconsistent but when he goes off he can change a week for you.
