The Denver Broncos had two had two players with breakout performances in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals: running back Willis McGahee and wide receiver Eric Decker. However, both could see their fantasy football affected negatively this week. Let's break down the Broncos for fantasy purposes:
QB: Kyle Orton returns to Tennessee, where the Broncos pulled off a 26-20 victory last season. He threw for 341 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Through two games, Tennessee has allowed an average of 172 yards per game. Orton is in between Luke McCown and Joe Flacco in terms of quarterbacking. Sit, keep as backup
RB: Willis McGahee picked up 101 rushing yards with Knowshon Moreno out with a hamstring injury. Moreno, though, is likely to return to the field this week. How much playing time he will get is another question. John Fox wants to play the hot hand and that means McGahee, but Moreno would still be likely to get 10 carries or so. Start McGahee, sit Moreno
WR: Eric Decker emerged as a fantasy star last week with five receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns. He benefited as a result of Brandon Lloyd being inactive for the game and Eddie Royal going down with a groin injury. Royal is out for at least two weeks while Lloyd could return this week. Decker is still a good start if Lloyd returns, but a repeat of last week's performance could be in doubt.
