With the exception of Elvis Dumervil, the other three Denver Broncos who were injured in Week 1's game against the Oakland Raiders are listed as questionable or better for Week 3's game against the Tennessee Titans. But the only one likely to play is wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the only player listed as probable.
Champ Bailey's hamstring, Knowshon Moreno's hamstring and D.J. Williams' elbow are likely to keep them out of this game. However, for fantasy purposes Moreno and Lloyd are the only ones that impact individual offensive positions on fantasy football teams.
Let's break down the positions once again:
QB: Kyle Orton is not a top-tier starter and if he is starting for a team it better be for a really deep league. He's not a bad option, but he's better as a backup.
RB: Even if Knowshon Moreno manages to get a few carries Willis McGahee should be a START after last week's 100-plus yard performance. He might not get as many carries this week, but Lance Ball isn't going to take away his opportunities in the end zone.
WR: Brandon Lloyd is probable for this game and he is Kyle Orton's favorite target. However, Eric Decker emerged last week as a solid option following his five-reception, 113-yard, two touchdown performance. START Decker and Lloyd, but look for Decker to be involved in the return game as well.
TE: Daniel Fells remains the starter and with rookie tight end Julius Thomas out he stands to gain a few more looks. However, that doesn't make him a great option. Could be a START at a flex position if needed.
K: Matt Prater is still going strong here.
DEF: Chris Johnson could run wild against this defensive line. Kenny Britt could take advantage of a secondary without Champ Bailey. SIT
