Broncos vs. Chiefs: Fantasy football projections featuring Peyton Manning, Jamaal Charles, Demaryius Thomas

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections in the Week 12 matchup between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos at 1:00 PM ET in Week 12. By all rights this game should be a laugher, with the two teams heading in opposite directions, but there are still some interesting fantasy matchups. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Denver Broncos

The big news of the week was Willis McGahee going down for the season with a gruesome knee injury, so Ronnie Hillman is the new starter. The Broncos expect to monitor his touches closely, so don't look for much more than RB2/flex production. Other than that, the offense is as reliable as they come in fantasy. Peyton Manning is firing on all cylinders and his receivers have benefited as a result. Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker are both safe plays this week.

Kansas City Chiefs

Wow, where to begin? The team has completely fallen apart and the coaching staff should be updating their resumes by now. Brady Quinn is getting the start as Matt Cassel has probably taken his last snap in KC. Expect him to feed Jamaal Charles, still the only reliable fantasy play on this putrid offense. Dwayne Bowe is probable with a neck injury, but I don't expect much out of him with Quinn slinging the ball around. Other than Charles, stay far, far away from this team.
