Broncos CB Kayvon Webster suffered a thumb injury in Thursday's loss to the Chargers, and will undergo surgery on Friday.
The Broncos are calling him week to week. A third-round rookie, Webster has been playing major snaps with Champ Bailey (foot) sidelined.
Vincent Brown caught three passes for 54 yards in San Diego's Week 15 win over the Broncos.
Brown's 54 yards actually led the team on a night where San Diego dialed up only 19 passes, mustering 166 yards through the air. Embarrassingly for the summer sleeper, Brown's 54 yards were his second most of the season. He'll remain off the fantasy radar for Week 16.
Virgil Green wasn't targeted in Denver's Week 15 loss to the Chargers.
As the Denver Post reported pre-game, Green got the "start" in the slot over Jacob Tamme, but it was WR Andre Caldwell who ended up filling in for Wes Welker. Green has just six catches on the season, and will remain well off the fantasy radar for Week 16.
Jacob Tamme caught one pass for nine yards in Denver's Week 15 loss to the Chargers.
As the Denver Post reported pre-game, Tamme came off the bench behind Virgil Green, though neither player ended up replacing Wes Welker in the slot. Those honors fell to Andre Caldwell, who posted a team-leading 6/59/2 line. Send Tamme back to the waiver wire for Week 16.
Eddie Royal caught three passes for 46 yards in the Chargers' Week 15 win over the Broncos.
Royal drew a team-leading six targets on a night where the Bolts dialed up only 19 pass attempts. A more valuable "real life" than fantasy player, Royal shouldn't be anywhere near fake football lineups for the final week of the playoffs in Week 16.
Ladarius Green wasn't targeted in the Chargers' Week 15 win over the Broncos.
Green was on the field for a decent amount of snaps, but was largely called on to block as the Bolts went with a run-heavy game-plan. Green's upside is through the roof, but he's not getting a chance to showcase it with Eddie Royal (toe) back in the fold. Green is an elite hold in Dynasty leagues, but will be off the radar for the final week of the fantasy playoffs.
Antonio Gates caught two passes for 23 yards in San Diego's Week 15 win over the Broncos.
Gates' catches were his only two looks on a night where the Bolts dialed up just 19 pass attempts. Both of Gates' grabs moved the chains on third down, but the veteran tight end has now cleared 6.2 fantasy points only once in his past nine games. Owners need to do better for the final week of the fantasy playoffs in Week 16.
Filling in for Wes Welker in the slot, Broncos WR Andre Caldwell caught six passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's Week 15 loss to the Chargers.
Pre-game speculation had either TE Jacob Tamme or TE Virgil Green picking up Welker's slack, but instead it was Caldwell, who drew a team-leading 10 targets. His scores were the Broncos' only two touchdowns of the night, and his first since Week 1. It was a random, albeit solid, effort for a player who entered Week 15 with all of five catches. Caldwell stepped up when his team needed him, but with Welker likely returning for Week 16, he remains miles from fantasy relevance.
