You can find a more detailed, audio version of this on our iHeartRadio channel, but here's the cliffnotes from the Broncos/Ravens game.
Julius Thomas is legit. He's not scoring 23 fantasy points every week, but he is a startable tight end with Top 5 upside. He was actually my "sneak of the week" as a guy that was owned in just 20% of ESPN leagues, and that paid off. Manning looked for him a lot (7 targets) and Thomas has the big play potential to break lots of scores this year.
The Broncos runningbacks scared me going into the game, and still scare me. It's not even the split workload (Moreno 9, Ball 8 carries). It's the lack of workload. This very well could've just been a result of the game plan, but the Broncos called 45 passing plays...and 23 runs. That's New Orleans Saints territory, which would deem any of the Denver runningbacks useless to fantasy owners most weeks. I want to see a little bit more from them before I start them. Ever.
Marlon Brown is very good, and should be owned in deeper leagues. If Jacoby Jones' injury will keep him out for a period of time, Brown should be picked up in 10-12 team leagues as well.
Dallas Clark - wanna see more, but he's definitely worth a shot. Flacco won't throw the ball 62 times every week.
