2015 NFL Draft – 23rd Overall Pick – Broncos Draft Shane Ray

After trading up five spots, the Broncos drafted defensive end Shane Ray.

Ray is an animal on defense with relentless energy and top-10 ability. His speed is an asset as well but is smaller compared to other edge rushers.

Ray could have gone much higher but character issues, along with a run-in with police just this week, caused Ray to drop a bit. However, if he can avoid trouble, he can be a great compliment, and eventual heir, to Demarcus Ware on the end. For IDP purposes, he’ll be good for sacks only.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Denver beats Oakland, 37-21

  • Peyton Manning did Peyton Manning things, throwing for 374 yards and three touchdowns all while going 32/37 on pass attempts. He’s one of those where age doesn’t matter in fantasy, he may win you a championship by himself.
  • The three-headed monster also known as Denver’s running game had carries of 12 (Knowshon Moreno), 11 (Montee Ball), and 9 (Ronnie Hillman). Hillman won this round with 66 yards. Ball wasn’t far behind at 61 but did have a late fumble. Ball is still the better dynasty prospect as they used the higher draft pick but nothing is certain there.
  • Oakland defensive end Lamarr Houston continues to be a bright spot with a sack and forced fumble. Houston is an underrated end that has some big play potential as one of the only talents on the Oakland defense and would make a fine DL2 on your dynasty fantasy team.
  • On the other hand, Oakland running back Darren McFadden had nine yards on 12 carries. He’s off the dynasty map until further notice.
