John Elway and Shannon Sharpe lead the way for the Denver Broncos – The Athletic

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the creation of fantasy football, The Athletic reviews the best fantasy players and fantasy seasons in NFL history.

A detailed look at the system used to rate historical fantasy performance can be found in our Top Fantasy Players of All Time introduction page, but here is a brief summary.

Fantasy player performance is adjusted through the era so that players who dominated during low-scoring eras can compete against players who racked up huge point totals in higher-scoring eras.

Once these adjustments are made, players are then credited for having a starter-caliber season (one point), a quality season (one point), an impact campaign (1.5 points), or being an elite starter (two points). These points stack up and are measured in both non-PPR and PPR and serve as the basis for determining who the best fantasy players in NFL history are.

Now that we’re done with the preliminaries, let’s take a look at the best fantasy players in Denver Broncos team history!

(Note: The numbers listed below are for the player’s performance on the Broncos.)

Quarterback – John Elway

The amazing part of Elway’s fantastic career is that he was much better in the second half than he was in the first.
