Fantasy Forecast: Broncos offense should run wild on defenses all season

(Continued)

Either way, the Broncos are going to make a lot of fantasy owners happy this season.

On the other end of the spectrum is the New York Jets. I ask you: Is there a single Jet you really want to own?

Maybe Bilal Powell at running back, but beyond that not much else. Santonio Holmes is already hurt with a foot injury and questionable for Week 1. Clearly, you don’t want either of the Jets quarterbacks, Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez. And really, the team’s ineptitude at QB brings down the rest of the offense into its spiral of despair.

It’s hard to see any offensive player on this roster being productive enough to merit playing in anything other than maybe a bye week.

He was a popular sleeper before the season, and it’s easy to see why. I think wideout T.Y. Hilton is poised to have a breakout season for the Colts.

Hilton appeared to come into his own late in 2012, posting four games of over 100 receiving yards after the halfway point. He led all rookie wide receivers in TDs (7) and was second in receiving yards (861). With a year of experience and more time to mesh with quarterback Andrew Luck, Hilton should improve upon those already strong numbers. I think he is a must start in most of his games this season.

Rob Gronkowski has been participating in Patriots practice all week, but I find it hard to believe he’ll be ready to go against the Bills tomorrow.

The tight end has been listed as a ‘limited’ practice participant all week and the team designated him as doubtful for the opener. Of course, getting any injury information out of Bill Belichick is like pulling teeth, but even with his monotone statements yielding no actual information, it’s hard to believe the Patriots would risk exposing Gronkowski to further injury by rushing him back too soon — especially considering they’re facing one of their all-time punching bags in the Buffalo Bills.
