Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Back running again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Anderson, who tore his right meniscus in October, has started running on a treadmill and expects to be ready once training camp begins, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

Anderson's knee injury and subsequent surgery left him unavailable for the final 10 weeks of this season. While that offered more opportunities to rookie Devontae Booker, the Broncos' running game finished 27th league-wide. As a result, Anderson, who had Denver's lone 100-yard rushing game this season, figures to lead the team's backfield attack once healthy. In beginning to run again, Anderson has cleared a hurdle on his road to recovery, which he anticipates to culminate with a training-camp return. Should that transpire, Anderson's injury, along with Denver's trouble running the ball, could see him enter the season with a cooler fantasy stock than last season, but his starting status would figure to benefit him nonetheless.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Tops 1,000 yards again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanders (foot) caught 79 passes (on 139 targets) for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games played this season.

Sanders was forced into exit early from Denver's season finale due a foot injury, but that only came after he put together a third straight 1,000-yard season since joining the Broncos. Despite dealing with the respective growing pains of quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, Sanders' 79 catches and 139 targets both marked the second-most over his seven-year career. Coming off a three-year, $33 million extension signed in September, the veteran has also now scored at least five touchdowns in four consecutive campaigns. With former Chargers coach Mike McCoy slated to become the Broncos offensive coordinator, Sanders could benefit from an attacking scheme build around the team's playmakers, The Denver Post reports, particularly if the club's quarterback play improves in 2017.

Broncos' Matthew Paradis: Undergoes hip surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Paradis underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right hip Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

Paradis' operation earlier this week precedes a second surgery on his left hip in approximately three weeks. His doctor believes, "Matt will come back as a much better athlete -- more agile, more explosive -- and really be able to utilize his hips going forward." Paradis is set for a lengthy road to recovery, but he's slated to be at full health by the start of the 2017 regular season.

Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Finishes rookie season on the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch completed 59 percent of his passes for 497 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in a little over two and a half games of work. He added 25 yards on 11 carries.

Lynch was expected to see about a half of action in Denver's season finale against Oakland. The flow of the game, according to former head coach Gary Kubiak, dictated that Trevor Siemian stuck in there, however. Lynch came into Denver with many believing that he'd need a red-shirt year or two before being able to compete. After an impressive debut in the second half of Week 4's win over Tampa Bay, Lynch proved that to be a case - often appearing lost in progressively less effective starts against Atlanta and Jacksonville. Lynch flashed a big arm and impressive mobility for a player his size at points during the season, but also looked out of sync with receivers and flustered by rushers. The front office will certainly be looking for strides from Lynch in 2017 and general manager John Elway has indicated that the plan is to have Siemian and Lynch duke it out this off season. As will be the case for many Broncos, Lynch's value will be tied to the incoming coaching staff. Kubiak was known for preferring an under-center offense that suited his one-cut run blocking scheme. It will be interesting to see whether Lynch's next offensive coordinator opens up the playbook a bit, incorporating more shotgun spread concepts and boot-action looks that made him a top pick.

Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Finishes season with 18 touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Siemian completed his first season as a starter having completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also added 57 yards on the ground on 28 attempts.

It was a very up and down campaign for Siemian, who was on Denver's roster all of last season but didn't attempt a pass. In some ways, the stats paint too flattering of a picture as - Week 3's win over Cincinnati and Week 13's loss to Kansas City removed- Siemian's touchdown:interception ration falls to 11:10 and his yards per attempt drops from 7.0 to 6.5. He also benefited from many dropped interceptions. On the flip side, the first-year player stood strong under a near-constant rush and had the defending champs in the playoff picture for much of the season. There is little doubt that management will be looking for 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch to give Siemian a run for his money in training camp. Siemian, who has credited former head coach Gary Kubiak for drafting him when others wouldn't, will has his future tied to the incoming staff. A key development will be whether quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp, who personally visited Siemian and worked him out before the draft, is retained. Knapp worked with lead candidate Vance Joseph under Kubiak in Houston and also runs a similar West-Coast system as another top candidate, Kyle Shanahan.
