The NFL season is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about fantasy football. The Denver Broncos are a great team to be involved with in fantasy football. They have a lot of great players on their roster, and it would be a shame to have not accounted for their stats in your projections. In this article, we will name our top 5 fantasy football players for the Denver Broncos in 2020.
Harris had quite the draft season. He went from being undrafted in 2019 to being selected in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. This year, he’ll be playing outside linebacker for the Broncos, but he was primarily a safety in college. He’ll have his hands full with the NFL learning curve, but he’s got a great deal of talent. You can write him off as a rookie, but you can also write him off as being overrated. He’ll be a solid 3-4 starter for Denver in Year 1.
If you’re looking for a safety to draft in your fantasy football drafts this summer, then Simmons is your guy. He’ll be entering his third season in the NFL, and in that time, he’s amassed over 100 tackles and 6 interceptions. He was originally drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, he didn’t sign with Oakland and instead joined the Broncos’ practice squad. Over the past two seasons with Denver, he’s started 37 of the 47 games he’s been active for and been a key contributor on the defensive side of the ball. He’s reliable, and although he won’t set the world on fire with his stats, he’ll be a good start for your fantasy football team.
While Harris and Simmons bring versatility and talent to the table, McSorley offers you a different kind of value. He’s a known commodity at this point, having played previously for Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. He was also a member of the New England Patriots practice squad from 2015-2018. McSorley has starting experience and offers value as a backup quarterback, either outside or inside the locker room. Perhaps most importantly, he can contribute to the field in a variety of ways. He’s a complete back-up who can contribute on special teams.
Finally, we have Isaiah McKenzie, who is returning from injury for the 2020 NFL season. In 2019, he saw limited action as he rehabbed from a torn ACL, so he won’t have the stats to fall back on. However, he has a lot of potential, and as long as he avoids any more injuries, he’ll be worth drafting in your fantasy football drafts.
The above players all have a good case for best fantasy football player, but we have to go with Harris for now. He had one of the best draft seasons in 2020, rising all the way to fifth round where the Broncos selected him. He’s still relatively unproven, but he has everything you look for in a backup quarterback. He’s powerful, accurate, and can make all the correct adjustments during a game. He’s smart and brings a new dimension to the table for Denver. He’s a great pickup if you’re looking for a quarterback to back up in your leagues.
