After two consecutive losses, the Denver Broncos are looking a lot like the Denver Broncos of 2011, and not much like the hype that surrounded them going into 2012.
In Week 4, the Broncos host the Oakland Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and look to bring their record back to an even standing.
It's been a toss-up deciding whether or not to start Broncos like Peyton Manning and Willis McGahee in fantasy leagues this year. Some tough defenses paved the way for Denver through three weeks.
This week, Denver faces a defense that's not quite up to par with its previous three opponents.
Not to be taken lightly, the Oakland Raiders have played seriously tough opponents themselves so far in this young season, but it seems like maybe this will be a less difficult game for Manning and his offense in Week 4.
Here, we'll take a look at the stat projections for Denver's starters and a few of their key reserves against Oakland. Maybe afterwards, the choice to put Manning and company in your fantasy lineup won't be so hard to make.
