Broncos vs. Ravens: Fantasy football projections featuring Peyton Manning, DeMaryius Thomas and Ray Rice


We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 15 matchup between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.

The Broncos will travel to Baltimore in what could be an NFL Divisional Playoffs preview. The semifinals are here for most leagues, so owners will need all the help they can get from these two rosters. In order to help you set the best lineup for this crucial playoff week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Denver Broncos

The Ravens have been known to keep QBs in check, but they're a little banged up and Peyton Manning should have some success. DeMaryius Thomas and Eric Decker should be locked and loaded in all lineups.

Knowshon Moreno has been a marvelous addition to fantasy teams and he received a career-high carries in his last game against the Raiders. He should be viewed as a high-end RB2.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens said goodbye to offensive coordinator Cam Cameron this week, so it should be interesting to see what happens with Ray Rice. Rice shockingly ranks just 12th in carries, but there's a good chance that the Ravens will need a heavy dose of him to try and keep Manning off the field.

The Broncos are also scoring in bunches, so Joe Flacco might have to count on Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Boldin has been more reliable than Smith lately, but Smith and his big-play ability gets a slight edge over Boldin in our projections.
