Fantasy football advice

The Broncos’ offense should be avoided at all costs by fantasy managers as they head into this matchup against the Chiefs. A 51-14 loss to the Rams on Christmas was the cherry on top of their disappointing season, and at this point, there’s not much left to go on. If Dulcich is out, Eric Saubert will likely come in at tight end to face the Chiefs.

If Dulcich returns to practice and does end up playing, he could be an option to start at tight end, as the Chiefs are in the upper half of fantasy points allowed to opposing TEs. However, remember that you’ll be working with this Denver offense if you do start him.
