Steven Johnson suffered a mild ankle sprain on Sunday. 

Johnson was the backup middle linebacker to Nate Irving, and if he cannot go in Week 8, then Lamin Barrow will get some time on defense. I would not suggest picking up Barrow in your IDP league.

Broncos have signed Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived Shaquil Barrett.

More practice squad moves that have zero impact for fantasy teams.

Brandon McManus did not participate in Monday's practice because of strained right groin.

Consider McManus day-to-day for now. Should he be limited or in danger of missing Week 8, the Broncos will sign another kicker.

Brandon McManus did not attempt a field goal Sunday but converted six extra point attempts.

The Broncos decided to go on a touchdown rampage, so McManus was left to extra point duties. Still, he kicks for the game's most prolific offense. He's an every week start.

DeMarcus Ware had four tackles -- three sacks -- during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

The Broncos defense played their best game of the year Sunday night, applying constant pressure to San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller combined for five sacks, an impressive feat to say the least.

Julius Thomas caught four passes on six targets for 27 yards during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

The touchdown streak has ended. Thomas scored in each of his first five games this season, and scored multiple touchdowns in three of the those games. He wasn't going to keep it up all season, as touchdowns are still one of the game's most fickle offensive stats. Still, you're not trading him unless you land a top tier RB1 or his teammate and surname compadre Demaryius. He's still the best Tight-End for fantasy purposes, although the gap between he and Gronkowski isn't as wide as it may have appeared a few weeks ago.

Emmanuel Sanders caught three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

TOUCHDOWN! Now that's what Sanders owners have been waiting for. After totaling 474 receiving yards through his first five games, he entered Sunday without a touchdown catch on his stat sheet. The monkey is off his back, and it should be the first of more than a few.

Wes Welker caught three passes on three targets for 50 yards and a touchdown during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Welker caught a 39-yard TD pass late in the first quarter, diving into the pylon from a few yards out. It Welker's first TD of the season, and it's hard to imagine they'll keep on coming with the amount of work Welker is getting -- not to mention the panoply of redzone options Peyton Manning has at his disposal. He's still nothing more than a boom-or-bust WR3.

Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes on nine targets for 171 yards and two touchdowns during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Demaryius Thomas has been on an absolute tear the last three weeks, totaling a whopping 521 yards and five touchdowns. With Calvin Johnson dealing with a high-ankle sprain and Dez Bryant a clear cut below, he appears to be in a two-man tier with Jordy Nelson as fantasy's Co-King at wide receiver.

Juwan Thompson carried the ball six times for 30 yards during the Broncos' 42-17 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Thompson played second fiddle to starter Ronnie Hillman, but did well with his limited carries. He's no more than an insurance policy for Hillman at this point, as Montee Ball is unlikely to regain his job upon returning from his groin injury.
