9 News Denver's Mike Klis believes Devontae Booker was about to get "overtaken" by Kapri Bibbs before Bibbs suffered a year-ending ankle injury.

Grain of salt advised here because Klis was wrong about Bibbs potentially overtaking Booker once before, and because he allowed this was entirely his own opinion/guess by using the phrase "in my estimation." Still, it's a possible indication that the Broncos are indeed growing frustrated with Booker's lack of decisiveness and inability to generate positive gains. He has averaged just 2.80 yards per carry over the last five games. The Broncos claimed longtime Gary Kubiak pal Justin Forsett off waivers on Monday, and it would not be surprising if Forsett were mixed into the game plan as soon as Week 14 at Tennessee.
Dec 5 - 5:20 PM

Broncos placed RB Kapri Bibbs on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, ending his season.

It's a shame after Bibbs gave the Broncos some of their most explosive runs of the season in Sunday's win at Jacksonville. The Broncos will move forward with Justin Forsett as their No. 2 back behind shaky starter Devontae Booker, whose performance is seemingly getting worse every week. Bibbs is primarily a special teamer and not someone worth stashing in any Dynasty leagues.
Dec 5 - 5:16 PM

Broncos claimed RB Justin Forsett off waivers from the Lions.

The move became necessary insurance when Kapri Bibbs suffered a high ankle sprain, but it's not out of the question that Forsett assumes a legitimate role in Denver's backfield in the near future. Devontae Booker has struggled mightily in five straight games (2.80 YPC), while Forsett has full knowledge of Kubiak's offense after playing for him in Baltimore and enjoying the best year of his career with Kubiak coordinating the Ravens' 2014 offense.
Dec 5 - 4:05 PM

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 14 against the Titans.

It's not an ideal week for Marshall to miss with DeMarco Murray on the docket. The Broncos will turn to Corey Nelson next to Todd Davis at inside linebacker.
Dec 5 - 3:47 PM

Speaking Monday, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Trevor Siemian (foot) is doing a "lot better."

NBC Denver has reported there's "hope" Siemian returns against the Titans. He has shed his walking boot. The Broncos desperately need Siemian back. Paxton Lynch isn't ready for prime time, to put it mildly. Siemian's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Broncos return to practice.
Dec 5 - 3:15 PM

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs was spotted with a boot on his left ankle after Sunday's game.

Bibbs reportedly suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Jaguars, meaning he is going to be out at least a couple weeks. With Devontae Booker struggling and not much else on the depth chart, the Broncos will need to add someone off the street. Justin Forsett was just cut by the Lions.
Dec 5 - 9:31 AM

Denver 7's Troy Renck reports there is "hope" Trevor Siemian (foot) will play this week.

Renck reports Siemian's foot "has improved" since last week. He will be evaluated on Monday. The Broncos got the win against Jacksonville, but they won despite Paxton Lynch. With a tougher test against Tennessee on tap, the Broncos need Siemian on the field if possible.
Dec 5 - 9:24 AM

Virgil Green went catch-less on one target in Week 13.

He's been passed by AJ Derby as the Broncos' pass-catching tight end.
Dec 4 - 5:29 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-10 targets for 61 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over the Jaguars.

The Broncos only threw for 104 yards in this game with Paxton Lynch at quarterback, so Demaryius owners who started him should be wiping their brow that he came out with this much production. Trevor Siemian is battling a foot sprain and his status for Week 14 against the Titans is questionable. Thomas will be a WR2 if Siemian plays, and a boom-bust WR3 if Lynch gets another nod.
Dec 4 - 5:26 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught 3-of-9 targets for 28 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over the Jaguars.

The Broncos managed 104 passing yards in this game, so it's not surprising in hindsight that Sanders failed to hit his usual fantasy standards. Denver needs Trevor Siemian (foot) back for Week 14 against the Titans. If Siemian does return, Sanders will be an upside WR2 play in a quality matchup. If it's Lynch, Sanders will be a boom-bust WR3/flex option.
Dec 4 - 5:18 PM

Devontae Booker rushed 18 times for 35 yards and a touchdown and caught his lone target for two yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over the Jaguars.

Booker was severely outplayed by Kapri Bibbs (5-49 rushing) before Bibbs left with an ankle injury, leaving the backfield all to Booker. Booker saved his fantasy day with a six-yard touchdown run after a number of big-time runs on that specific drive by Bibbs. Booker's ineffectiveness has continued regardless of matchups and workload. He needs to be downgraded to a flex option in Week 14 against the Titans.
Dec 4 - 5:13 PM

Paxton Lynch completed 12-of-24 passes for 104 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over Jacksonville.

He rushed twice for 11 yards. The good news is Lynch avoided turnovers and took only two sacks after taking six in his Week 5 spot start against the Falcons. The bad news is Lynch struggled mightily for the second straight start and is a clear downgrade from Trevor Siemian, who was inactive Sunday with a foot sprain. In order to beat better teams than the Jaguars, the Broncos are going to need Siemian back. Denver heads to Tennessee for Week 14.
Dec 4 - 5:08 PM

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs left Sunday's Week 13 game with a high ankle sprain.

Bibbs was the Broncos' most effective rusher before the injury, piling up 49 yards on five carries. High ankle sprains are multi-week injuries.
Dec 4 - 2:51 PM

Broncos declared QB Trevor Siemian, WRs Bennie Fowler and Marlon Brown, OLs Casey Kreiter, Connor McGovern, and Billy Turner, and CB Lorenzo Doss inactive for Week 13 against Jacksonville.

Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback against the Jaguars.
Dec 4 - 11:39 AM

Lions released RB Justin Forsett.

Forsett had been a healthy scratch the last few weeks. He wasn't needed behind Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington, and Zach Zenner. Forsett has ties to Broncos HC Gary Kubiak, but seems unlikely to resurface this late in the season.
