  • Courtland Sutton Has Foot Evaluated During Practice

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (foot) suffered a foot injury during practice on Saturday. However, after being evaluated, he returned to the field. With Tim Patrick (knee) tearing his ACL, Sutton is expected to see plenty of targets this season from new signal-caller Russell Wilson, especially in the red zone. The 26-year-old finished 2021-22 with only 58 catches for 776 yards and two touchdowns. Yet, with Wilson in the equation, Sutton could be in store for the best season of his career.

  • Albert Okwuegbunam May See More Red Zone Looks

    Denver Broncos tight end Albert Okwuegbunam could see more targets moving ahead after Tim Patrick (knee) was lost for the year. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett emphasized the need for others to step up on the offensive end this season, especially inside the red zone, an area where Patrick has thrived over the years. With Noah Fant now in Seattle, there will be plenty of chances for Okwuegbunam to get involved. He'll likely share snaps with rookie Greg Dulcich, but his upside in deeper fantasy formats may be higher than ever. There is also streaming potential for the 2020 fourth-round pick, even more so if Dulcich is limited early in the season due to his nagging hamstring issue.

  • Javonte Williams, Melvin Gordon III Could See 70-30 Split

    Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams could be unleashed in the newly revamped offense this season, according to team reporter Cecil Lammey. Melvin Gordon III was brought back to the Denver backfield on a one-year deal well after free agency opened so it is no surprise that the young stud running back might be in for a significant workload. Williams has been getting most of the first-team reps during camp, as in six out of the seven practices he has worked with the starters. If Williams does in fact lead the way in a 70-30 split, he could be valued as an elite RB1 with league-winning upside. As of now, his draft price reflects Gordon having a similar role to last season, where the two saw a dead-even split.

  • Tim Patrick Suffers Season-Ending ACL Injury

    An MRI exam confirmed on Tuesday that Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL in training camp practice. It's the third straight year the Broncos have lost a star receiver to a season-ending ACL injury, joining Courtland Sutton in 2020 and KJ Hamler last year. Running back Damarea Crockett also went down in practice on Tuesday with an apparent knee injury, and the team fears it's also significant. With Patrick now out for all of 2020, Hamler, who was just activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday, will have a prime opportunity to serve as the No. 3 for quarterback Russell Wilson behind Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. Hamler, who could break out as a deep threat for Wilson, should start slowly rising up draft boards.

  • Tim Patrick Carted Off With Injury Tuesday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick (knee) was carted off the field at training camp practice on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury. DNVR Sports' Zac Stevens is reporting that Patrick suffered a possible knee injury. The 28-year-old wideout wasn't putting weight on his right leg as he was taken to the locker room. He is one of the more underrated receivers in the NFL and is stuck in a crowded receiver room in Denver, but he's an important piece to Denver's offense, when healthy. Patrick finished the last two years with 700-plus receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns in 31 games. If he's forced to miss significant time, it will open the door for KJ Hamler (knee), who just came off the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday, to see extra playing time with new quarterback Russell Wilson.

  • Broncos WR details injury-aided therapy journey

  • KJ Hamler Expected To Come Off PUP List Monday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler (knee, hip) is expected to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday, according to a league source. Hamler has rebounded from ACL and hip surgeries better than expected, and the Broncos will get their speedy deep threat back in training camp. Denver's offense is crowded at receiver with Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick, but when healthy, Hamler might be the team's best deep threat for a quarterback (Russell Wilson) who is extremely effective at delivering deep bombs down the field. Most fantasy managers in standard-sized leagues will pass on Hamler on draft day, and while he'll probably be inconsistent in his weekly production, he could have some big games as well.

  • Broncos, Russell Wilson Yet To Begin Extension Talks

    Both the Broncos and Russell Wilson have expressed the obvious desire for a long-term partnership, a scenario introduced by the historic trade package sent to the quarterback’s former team. But the sides are operating methodically here. No negotiations are believed to have taken place yet, Jeff Howe of The Athletic notes (subscription required). Wilson is […]

  • Javonte Williams Getting First Look With Starters

    Denver Broncos second-year running back Javonte Williams has gotten the first look with the starters each day of training camp practice so far, but Melvin Gordon has also received some snaps with the starters as well. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett continues to say he sees an active role for both players in the offense. The Broncos have big plans for Williams, but Gordon was re-signed to help carry the load in the backfield. Last year, Gordon was often the nominal starter on game days, but that's likely to be flipped in 2022. Depending on the actual touch distribution on a weekly basis, Williams has clear RB1 upside in an offense that should be much more explosive with quarterback Russell Wilson at the controls. Gordon, meanwhile, will be a handcuff options/RB3/flex in fantasy.

  • Russell Wilson Speeding Up Broncos Offense

    Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Wednesday that it will be up to quarterback Russell Wilson to set the pace for the offense during training camp and into the season. And after two days of practices, it's clear Wilson wants to press his foot firmly on the accelerator. The increased pace of the offense is unmistakable, even when measured against the workouts of the offseason program. The Broncos ranked 28th in the league in pace of play last year, according to Football Outsiders, with an average play time between snaps of 29.45 seconds. The Seahawks under Wilson in 2021 ranked sixth. A fast-paced offense doesn't always mean an efficient offense, but this should be good news for a Wilson-led Broncos offense in 2022, and Wilson should be seen as a top-10 fantasy QB in his new digs.

  • KJ Hamler Officially Placed On PUP List

    Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler (knee) has been officially placed on the active/PUP list. This was the expectation all along, but it has finally been made official. The 23-year-old is recovering from a torn ACL and dislocated hip that he suffered during Week 3 of last season. Hamler missed part of his rookie year and barely played last season. That being said, the Broncos are going to be cautious with Hamler going forward. Once healthy, Hamler is expected to compete for the WR3 spot on the roster. His fantasy value could be on the rise with Russell Wilson under center in Denver. Fantasy managers in deep and dynasty formats might want to consider stashing Hamler.
