Bennie Fowler cements #3 spot, Latimer gets traded after the season, Sanders dominates.
We will go player by player for this one, starting with Bennie Fowler. Fowler is currently hurt, but when he comes back, he will come back with a chip on his shoulder. He ends the season with the second most touchdowns on the team, as he becomes a valuable redzone weapon.
In addition, Fowler ends with over 10 catches of 25+ yards on the season and 70 catches for over 750 yards in total. With so much focus on Thomas and Sanders, Fowler causes all kinds of problems for opposing defenses, while being a safety outlet for the young quarterbacks.

With Fowler proving to be so valuable on offense, and special teams, the team decided to move on from an underwhelming Cody Latimer. The former second round pick doesn’t catch more than 10 passes or go over 50 yards receiving.
That isn’t what pushes him to be traded. What does that is getting benched on special teams and losing his job there. Special teams is what has kept him there, and when Jordan Taylor steps up, the front office decided it is time to move one.
Finally there is Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders will put up big numbers this year offensively, but how he dominates is by the control he has over other defenses. He becomes such a force on offense, even when he doesn’t have the ball, that defenses start to fear him and treat him as the best receiver on the Broncos.
They start double and triple covering Sanders to just try to take him out of the game. This opens up the other receivers for Denver, especially Bennie Fowler. If that doesn’t cut it, Sanders still catches the most touchdowns for Denver, goes for over 1,500 yards and has over 25 catches of 25+ yards. Saying Sanders dominates it putting it nicely.
