DeMarcus Ware says he's never felt better
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Broncos pass rusher DeMarcus Ware says he's never felt better in the past couple of years. He's slimmed down this offseason -- down to the 250-pound range, according to the Denver Post -- in an effort to be faster. Last season he put on weight as the Cowboys moved to a 4-3 scheme after being in a 3-4 for so long. 

"I feel better than I did the last two years going into the season," Ware said. "Stronger, faster. I feel flexible."

Ronnie Hillman the better backup bet behind Ball?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

In a projection of the Broncos 53-man roster, ESPN's Jeff Legwold wrote that rusher Ronnie Hillman would be the backup to starter Montee Ball while fellow running back C.J. Anderson wouldn't make the team. Anderson had been receiving some positive attention this offseason. 

Undrafted rookies Brennan Clay and Juwan Thompson also figure into the competition to back up Ball, and both of those players have a shot to make the roster, according to Legwold. Clay is a good pass catcher and Thompson is a bigger back who can pass protect and work on special teams.

Emmanuel Sanders adds different dimension for Denver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos are expecting big things from new receiver Emmanuel Sanders this season, reports the team's official website.

"Well, when you watch him on film from when he was at Pittsburgh, you just see that quickness off the line, the vertical speed, his ability to separate down the field," said offensive coordinator Adam Gase in June. "It's a different kind of dimension for us."

Added fellow receiver Demaryius Thomas: "Sanders is too fast. He's quick and fast at the same time. Some guys are quick, fast, and you've got Wes [Welker], who's quick. Sanders is quick and fast. But I think it'll be great for the team, because he can go over the top, he can be quick, he can go inside. I think it's a big pickup for us. I think he'll be great."

The Broncos not only view Sanders as a replacement for Eric Decker but also as an insurance policy in case Welker gets hurt since Sanders has experience in the slot. But when everyone is healthy, Sanders will remain mostly on the outside in Decker's place.

"They're different body types, and Eric had his way of finding ways to get open and catching the ball and making plays down the field, and making big plays underneath and creating," Gase said. "Emmanuel can do the same thing. It's just going to be in a different way."

Broncos have faith in Montee Ball
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos are putting their faith in running back Montee Ball, reports ESPN.

The report says the Broncos view Ball as the player they "have cleared the way to shine most." The report also adds Ball earned that optimism by how he played down the stretch last season.

He was the most effective runner with the ball in his hands over the last six weeks of the season/postseason. The Broncos have seen vast improvements in his work as both a receiver and blocker in the passing game.

Cody Latimer on schedule for season opener
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos rookie receiver Cody Latimer is on schedule to be ready for the regular-season opener after suffering a fracture in his foot during the predraft process, ESPN.com reports.

Latimer was limited at minicamp but did show how he could be an asset "at winning the ball in contested situations," per the report. He faces an uphill battle for early playing time, but Latimer has the talent to eventual serve a key role for the Broncos.
