The Denver defense has been a dominant force in 2015, nearing the top of the NFL in most defensive statistical categories.
While leading the NFL in yards allowed through three weeks, fantasy owners of the Denver D/ST unit are particularly interested in the 11 sacks (t-3rd) and 10 forced turnovers (2nd) from this group. Fantasy's top scoring D/ST will again be a strong play in Week 4 as they host the Minnesota Vikings in Denver. Oct 2 - 1:39 AM

The Denver Broncos D/ST is the top scoring fantasy defense through two weeks of play.

The Denver defense is off to a fantastic start to the 2015 season, forcing seven turnovers and recording six sacks in just two games. The Broncos are also allowing just 243.5 yards of total offense per game after facing Baltimore and Kansas City to start the season. In Week 3, Denver travels to Detroit to face the Lions and dinged up quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Broncos D/ST will be a top-three play option this week in fantasy leagues as they look to continue their torrid start.

The Denver Broncos D/ST allowed the fewest total yards among NFL defenses in Week 1, giving up just 173 yards to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Denver defense stepped up when needed on Sunday with Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense managing to muster up just four Brandon McManus field goals. Cornerback Aqib Talib came up with a clutch 51-yard interception return for a score late in the third quarter that put Denver ahead for good as they squeaked out a 19-13 victory. The Broncos D/ST will now be on short rest as they travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs on Thursday night, but the Denver defense is a start-worthy group in fantasy leagues as they look for a repeat defensive performance.

The Denver Broncos led all NFL teams with 20 sacks in the 2015 preseason.

A seven sack performance against Seattle in Week 1 set the tone for the Denver defense, as they would continue to bother opposing quarterbacks throughout the entire preseason. The Denver defense was ninth in the NFL with 41 sacks in 2014, and appears ready to build on that success this season. The Denver D/ST is a solid season-long option and a back-end starting D/ST in fantasy leagues in Week 1 when they host Baltimore.

The Denver Broncos secondary will be missing it's starting strong safety in Week 1 after T.J. Ward received a one-game suspension.

The suspension, for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, was handed down on Thursday and will leave the Denver secondary shorthanded as they host the Baltimore Ravens to start the 2015 season. David Bruton or Omar Bolden will likely fill-in at SS for the Denver D/ST group that will be near the low-end of startable Week 1 fantasy options.
Sep 3 - 9:59 PM

The Denver Post tabbed new safety Darian Stewart as a "great fit for Wade Phillips’ defense."

The Post also noted that Stewart is the only prominent "new" starter on the Denver defense. Stewart is a new arrival from Baltimore and will attempt to fortify the Denver defense that is being selected 11th among fantasy D/ST units in fantasy drafts. The Broncos defense will be a middling option in Week 1 for fantasy owners as they host Joe Flacco and the Ravens at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver.
