    07/11/16RBDevontae BookerKneePROBABLEBooker's (knee) pass-catching ability could earn him early playing time, particularly in third-down situations, ESPN.com reports.

    Booker was taken during the fourth round this year, and despite coming off a February meniscus surgery, he's impressed with his hands during the Broncos' offseason program. Although C.J. Anderson projects as Denver's starting running back right now, Booker could push Ronnie Hillman for the backup job, which would feature third-down snaps and increase Booker's potential in PPR leagues.

    07/11/16QBMark SanchezThumbPROBABLESanchez has only a slight edge in the Broncos' quarterback battle, Troy Renck of The Denver Post reports.

    Back and forth the rumor mill goes. Sanchez's grip on the starting job seems to change daily - fueled by a few quotes from head coach Gary Kubiak and reporters' observations from segments of practices. The truth is that clarity into the Broncos' quarterback situation won't come until depth charts are released. Nobody ever mistook Sanchez for anything more than a veteran stopgap, but given that he's the only quarterback on the roster with a NFL passing attempt, it'd be a pretty big upset if he doesn't open the season as the starter.

    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
