Emmanuel Sanders contributed just two catches for 15 yards on eight targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Coming off his best game of the season, Sanders was completely ineffective in Sunday’s defeat. He had an especially difficult time in the second half, failing to catch any of his five targets after halftime. Sanders gets a good matchup against Oakland next week, but it’s tough to endorse him as anything more than a WR2/3 given the anemic state of Denver’s offense.

Demaryius Thomas corralled five-of-nine targets for 64 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Thomas was held without a catch in the first half. He made a terrific catch over Dre Kirkpatrick for a 17-yard touchdown while cutting the Bengals’ lead to three with just over five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. That touchdown was the 55th of his career, tying him with Shannon Sharpe for the second-most receiving touchdowns in team history. Thomas has followed up a 13-game touchdown drought by scoring in three straight games. He’ll look to make it four in a row next week against the Raiders.

Virgil Green secured two-of-four targets for 13 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Playing in place of AJ Derby (who was waived/injured on Saturday) and Jeff Heuerman (knee), Green offered nothing as a pass-catcher, though he did open up lanes for C.J. Anderson and Devontate Booker in the running game. He was actually out-snapped by Austin Traylor, who was promoted off the practice squad earlier in the week. Green won’t be a streaming option against the Raiders in Week 12.

C.J. Anderson managed 37 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries while catching two-of-three targets for 19 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Anderson got off to a hot start for Denver, converting a fourth-and-two opportunity in the first quarter and scoring a goal-line touchdown later on the same drive. The touchdown was his first since Week 2. Aside from that drive, Anderson was mostly a non-factor, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry with a long run of seven yards. Anderson coughed up a fumble after taking a massive hit from Vontaze Burfict in the fourth quarter and was both out-touched and out-gained by second-year back Devontae Booker. Those two should see close to an even workload next week at Oakland.

Jamaal Charles totaled seven yards on three carries Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Charles was in on just four-of-82 offensive snaps. It was easily his lightest workload of the year as Denver's backfield duties were mostly split between C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. With Booker healthy, Charles seems to be getting phased out of the Broncos’ offense. He won’t be on the fantasy radar next week at Oakland.

Devontae Booker rushed for 44 yards on 14 carries while adding five grabs for 54 yards on six targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

The 19 touches were his most since Week 13 of last year while his 98 yards from scrimmage also represented a new season-high. Four of Booker’s five catches came in the second half with Denver in catch-up mode. He was on the field for 18 more snaps than C.J. Anderson and out-touched him 19-15. It looks like Denver’s backfield, which was once dominated by Anderson, has devolved into a two-man timeshare. Both players will be in the RB3 mix next week at Oakland.
Nov 19 - 9:23 PM

Andy Dalton completed 15-of-25 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns while notching four yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

It wasn’t a big yardage day for Dalton, which was probably to be expected against a tough Broncos secondary. That being said, Dalton did well to lead three touchdown drives including two in the first half. He zipped a one-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft off a play-action pass in the first quarter before threading the needle on a 29-yard score to Alex Erickson early in the second frame. Later he recognized a mismatch with A.J. Green, who beat Bradley Roby for an 18-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dalton has now gone his last four games without throwing an interception after being picked off eight times over his first six outings. He gets the Browns at home in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 9:20 PM

Joe Mixon went for 49 yards on 20 carries while securing two catches for no yards on two targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

He out-touched Giovani Bernard by an overwhelming 22-4 margin, though obviously the huge workload didn’t amount to much as Mixon stumbled to just 2.5 yards per carry. His longest run of the afternoon went for all of eight yards. Mixon’s volume is finally trending in the right direction but he’s not much use to fantasy owners when he’s constantly running intro brick walls. Next week he’ll face the Browns, who bottled him up for 29 yards on 17 carries in Week 4.
