  • Greg Dulcich A Low-End TE1 Against Panthers

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich has had two straight games of very little production for his fantasy managers, totaling just five receptions on nine targets for 41 receiving yards and no touchdowns. Last week against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, he had four catches on five targets for 30 yards. The good news is he was tied for second on the team with his five targets, so quarterback Russell Wilson continues to look his way. The bad news is the Broncos offense isn't good at all, keeping the 22-year-old's upside on the low end of the spectrum as a low-end TE1 for fantasy managers in a Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers on the road. The Panthers defense is around the middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed per game to the tight end position.

  • Kendall Hinton To Have Elevated Role Against Carolina

    For the second straight week, Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton should serve as the team's No. 2 wideout with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) ruled out in Week 12 on the road against the Carolina Panthers. In last week's overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, Hinton played 88 percent of the offensive snaps and caught all three of his targets for 57 yards, his second-highest receiving total of the season. In the last two games, the 25-year-old has seven catches on eight targets for 119 yards. The slot weapon won't have a ton of upside in Denver's low-scoring offense, though, and he's not much of an option in the red zone. At best, Hinton will be a low-floor, low-ceiling WR4/flex in very deep fantasy leagues this weekend.

  • Courtland Sutton Has Another Big Opportunity In Week 12

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 80 yards in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) inactive due to injury. Jeudy and KJ Hamler (hamstring) have been ruled out again in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, so Sutton should safely lead all of Denver's pass-catchers in targets on Sunday. The 27-year-old had a couple of big plays down the field last weekend, and fantasy managers will be hoping he and quarterback Russell Wilson can connect on some more against the Panthers. Sutton's floor is scary in the Broncos' lackluster offense this year, but the guaranteed target load will put him on the WR2/3 borderline this weekend.

  • Marlon Mack Can't Be Trusted In Broncos Debut

    Denver Broncos running back Marlon Mack will make his debut with the team in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, but he cannot be trusted as an option for starting fantasy lineups behind lead back Latavius Murray. Mack is getting an opportunity with Chase Edmonds (ankle) on Injured Reserve and after the Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III this week. While he should see some touches behind Murray this weekend in Carolina, the impending return of Mike Boone (ankle) could push Mack to third on the RB depth chart in one of the worst offenses in the NFL in 2022. The 26-year-old will have an opportunity to impress Denver's coaching staff in Week 12, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect much at all. Mack didn't play a single offensive snap in two games with the San Francisco 49ers earlier this year.

  • Latavius Murray To Operate As Lead Back In Week 12

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was removed from the Week 12 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, a defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to RBs per game in half-point PPR settings this year. The Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III and Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve, so Murray should benefit as the unquestioned lead back for the Broncos this weekend. In his five games with Denver, Murray has 63 carries for 209 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and three touchdowns, adding 11 catches for 56 yards. The 32-year-old is slightly more attractive as an RB3/flex in fantasy lineups, but his lack of efficiency in one of the league's worst offenses shouldn't inspire much confidence, even in a good matchup.

  • Russell Wilson A Low-End QB2 Against Panthers

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has had an extremely disappointing season in his first year in Denver. He enters a Week 12 road matchup against the Carolina Panthers as the QB22 in overall fantasy points and he's thrown more than one touchdown in just one game in 2022 in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders. In the rematch against Vegas last weekend, Wilson completed a season-high 77.42 percent of his 31 attempts, but he went for just 247 yards and no touchdowns. There's no reason to think he'll suddenly go off this Sunday against a middle-of-the-pack Panthers pass defense, especially since Wilson will be without receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) for the second straight game. Wilson has proven he's a low-end QB2 this year in fantasy without much upside at all.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Ruled Out For Week 12

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) have both been ruled out for Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett. Jeudy and Hamler missed practice all week and will miss yet another game. In their absences, Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton will continue to be quarterback Russell Wilson's top two receivers. Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 80 yards in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, and he'll once again have WR2 upside in Week 12 as Wilson's go-to target. Hinton will merely be a deep-league flex option, but he has very little upside in Denver's low-scoring offense.

  • Latavius Murray Limited Again In Practice Thursday

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Murray's status is worth watching heading into this weekend's game against the Carolina Panthers. If for some reason he's unable to play, the Broncos would be extremely thin in the backfield after releasing Melvin Gordon III earlier this week. Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve. If he's active, Murray will be Denver's primary back and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in Denver's anemic offense. With Gordon gone and Edmonds on the shelf, Marlon Mack is now the handcuff option for fantasy managers that have Murray rostered.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Listed As DNPs Thursday

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) were both listed as non-participants in practice on Thursday for the second straight day. Unless they can return to practice on Friday, things are trending in the wrong direction for both Jeudy and Hamler to be able to play this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. If both Jeudy and Hamler miss another game, Kendall Hinton will see more playing time as the No. 2 receiver behind Courtland Sutton in Week 12. With Jeudy and Hamler out last weekend against the Las Vegas Raiders, Sutton caught five of seven targets for 80 yards, while Hinton caught all three of his targets for 57 receiving yards. Sutton will have WR2 upside if Jeudy misses another game.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Miss Practice Wednesday

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) did not take part in practice on Wednesday, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett. Both players are viewed as day-to-day for Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, but it's not a good start to the week for them. Both Jeudy and Hamler were sidelined in the Week 11 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, and Hamler also missed the previous game against the Tennessee Titans. If both Jeudy and Hamler miss another game this weekend, Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton will continue to serve as the team's top two pass-catchers. Sutton had five catches on a team-high seven targets for 80 yards on Sunday, while Hinton went for 57 receiving yards on three receptions.

  • Chase Edmonds Placed On Injured Reserve

    Denver Broncos running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) has been placed on the injured reserve. He'll miss the next four games while he recovers from a high-ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 11. This is bad timing with the team recently waiving Melvin Gordon III. Latavius Murray will be the lead back for the team being. Marlon Mack figures to get mixed in as well, but Murray is the much better fantasy option between the two.

  • Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler Both Day-To-Day

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and K.J. Hamler (hamstring) are both day-to-day, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett. There is optimism that the two receivers could return for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Technically, Jeudy has missed just one week so far, though he was sidelined for most of Week 10 after picking up his ankle injury on the opening drive. The 23-year-old has 30 catches, 449 yards, and three touchdowns this season. He has should be viewed as a WR3 in fantasy football upon his return. Meanwhile, Hamler, who isn't on the fantasy radar, has been sidelined since Week 8. He has seven catches for 165 yards in 2022.

  • Chase Edmonds Suffers High-Ankle Sprain

    Denver Broncos running back Chase Edmonds suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Edmonds is expected to miss multiple games. Despite this, the Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III, so Latavius Murray looks to be the clear lead back in Denver. He'll have RB2 upside with an RB1 weekly ceiling if he scores a few touchdowns. Marlon Mack and Devine Ozigbo will likely serve as committee backs behind Murray, but neither warrants much fantasy consideration.

  • Melvin Gordon III Waived By Broncos

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III has been waived by the team just a day after fumbling for the fifth time this season. This is somewhat of a surprise since newly acquired running back Chase Edmonds suffered an ankle injury in the Broncos' Week 11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. That said, this will be Latavius Murray's backfield moving forward, with Marlon Mack and Devine Ozigbo likely having somewhat of a role. For now, Gordon's fantasy managers should wait to see if he is claimed off waivers or signed as a free agent before deciding whether or not to drop him from rosters.

  • Broncos Defense Unimpressive In Overtime Loss

    The Denver Broncos' defense struggled against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11, forcing zero turnovers and amassing just one sack, courtesy of Josey Jewell. When all was said and done, Jewell and teammate Alex Singleton tied for the most tackles on the team, recording 11 apiece. The unit ultimately fell apart, allowing a game-ending Davante Adams touchdown in overtime. Despite Denver's struggles on Sunday, they're worth streaming against the woeful, Baker Mayfield-led Panthers in Week 12.

  • Brandon McManus Hits Four Kicks Sunday

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus went 3-for-4 on field goals and 1-for-1 on extra points during Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. His lone miss came on a blocked attempt. The 31-year-old has made just 79.2 percent of field goals in 2022, and with the Broncos' offense struggling, he can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues.

  • Greg Dulcich Catches Four Passes In Loss

    Denver Broncos tight end Greg Dulcich hauled in four of five targets for 30 yards during Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He has asserted himself atop the Broncos' depth chart and ranks as a high-end TE2 over the remainder of the season. Although Sunday's performance didn't quite match the 12.1 fantasy points per game he produced from Weeks 6 to 8, it was refreshing to see him bounce back after logging just 2.1 points last week. He's worth starting against the Panthers in Week 12.

  • Russell Wilson Produces Mediocre Stats In Week 11

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson completed 24 of 31 passes for 247 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11. He added eight rushing yards but was also sacked three times. Even against a subpar Raiders defense, Wilson's production was unappealing. He'll remain a low-end QB2 against the Panthers next Sunday.

  • Chase Edmonds Downgraded To Out Sunday

    Denver Broncos running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders, the team announced. He rushed two times for six yards before exiting the contest. Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray will continue to handle the majority of rushing duties in his absence.

  • Kendall Hinton Officially Active Sunday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton (shoulder) is officially active for Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He had been listed as questionable. Hinton is expected to operate as the Broncos' No. 2 receiver this week with K.J. Hamler (hamstring) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) sidelined. The 25-year-old had four catches for 62 yards last week and is a fine FLEX option in deeper leagues this Sunday.

  • Justin Simmons Will Play In Week 11

    Denver Broncos safety Justin Simmons (knee) will suit up for the Week 11 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. He missed last week's game, but was able to practice all this week. It appears Simmons is feeling good enough to get back on the field this weekend. Simmons has missed six of the first 10 games this season, but makes an impact when he's on the field. His return will give this defense a boost heading into their Week 11 contest.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Won't Play In Week 11

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jeudy and Hamler did not practice this week and were ultimately ruled out. Jeudy dodged a significant injury when he was hurt early in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, while Hamler is expected to miss the next few weeks with a hamstring issue. Courtland Sutton, Jalen Virgil, and Kendall Hinton (shoulder) would be quarterback Russell Wilson's top targets for Week 11.

Jonas Griffith aggravated a foot injury in practice Thursday, according to 9News’ Mike Klis, who adds the starting […]

  • Broncos Defense Is A Top-10 Fantasy Unit This Week

    The Denver Broncos defense may only be tied for 17th in the NFL in total fantasy points through the first 10 weeks of 2022, but you can't overlook the fact that they're allowing the fewest points per game (16.6), the fewest passing yards per game (174.4) and the second-fewest total yards per game (290.4) in nine games played. They've been lacking in takeaways (just 10), but they'll be facing a Las Vegas Raiders team that is reeling heading into Week 11. Two of their better playmakers on offense, tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) and receiver Hunter Renfrow (oblique), are on Injured Reserve. Running back Josh Jacobs gashed Denver's D for 144 rushing yards and two TDs back in Week 4, but if they can slow him down on Sunday, they should be a solid unit for fantasy managers.

  • Brandon McManus A Low-Ceiling Streamer Against Raiders

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus heads into a Week 11 matchup against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders tied for 20th among kickers in total fantasy points through 10 weeks. He'll also be facing a Raiders team that has been on the stingy side when it comes to fantasy points allowed to opposing kickers on a per-game basis. McManus has attempted just three field goals in the team's last three games, and he had just one extra point and one field goal in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Fantasy managers should probably look for better streamers than McManus, who kicks for the lowest-scoring offense in the NFL. In Week 4 against Vegas, the 31-year-old made his only field-goal attempt and made two of his three extra points.

  • Greg Dulcich Should Bounce Back In Week 11

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich had the worst game of his young career in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, catching just one of four targets for 11 yards. In his previous three contests, Dulcich found his way onto the TE1 radar by catching 12 of his 17 targets for 182 yards and one touchdown. Despite last week's stinker, the 22-year-old should see plenty of targets with both Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Kendall Hinton (shoulder) trending towards missing Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders defense has also allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position in half-point PPR scoring in 2022. Dulcich will have a great chance to bounce back into TE1 territory this weekend.

  • Jerry Jeudy, Kendall Hinton Not Practicing Thursday

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Kendall Hinton (shoulder) are not practicing on Thursday. It's Jeudy's second straight missed practice this week, while Hinton has been downgraded after he was a limited participant on Wednesday. The Broncos said they dodged a major injury with Jeudy when he was hurt early in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to play this Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. And with Hinton's status now in question as well, the Broncos may have to lean on rookies Jalen Virgil and Montrell Washington behind Courtland Sutton this weekend. Sutton is looking like a high-end WR2 as a likely target hog if Jeudy doesn't get cleared. KJ Hamler (hamstring) is set to miss a few weeks.

  • Courtland Sutton Could Have A Big Game In Week 11

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton finally showed some signs of life in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, securing six of his 11 targets for 66 yards. It came after a three-game stretch in which he had just six catches on 16 targets for 50 scoreless yards. Jerry Jeudy (ankle) left the game with an injury early and never returned, leading to Sutton being peppered with targets from quarterback Russell Wilson. The same thing could happen this Sunday against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders if Jeudy is unable to play. In the first meeting against Vegas in Week 4, Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 52 yards and his only touchdown of the year. Everyone in Denver's low-scoring offense has a scary fantasy floor at this point, but Sutton will have high-end WR2 upside this week if Jeudy is inactive.

  • Latavius Murray A Low-End RB3/Flex Against Raiders

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III remains the team's "starter," but Latavius Murray continues to see his fair share of the backfield work. In his four games with Denver since Javonte Williams (knee) was lost for the season, Murray has seen 46 carries for 160 yards and two touchdowns, adding seven receptions on nine targets for 33 yards. In that same time frame, Gordon has seen 30 carries for 94 yards and a TD, adding nine catches (14 targets) for 86 yards. Murray will be facing a Raiders defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to RBs in half-point PPR scoring, but this Broncos backfield timeshare is tough to trust in the lowest-scoring offense in the NFL. The 32-year-old will have to find the end zone to justify a starting lineup spot as a low-end, touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.

  • Melvin Gordon III Still The Best Bet In Broncos Backfield

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III had a decent fantasy day in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, carrying the ball seven times for 24 yards while catching four of a season-high-tying six targets for 46 yards. However, he's seen double-digit carries only once in the last four games and continues to lose valuable touches, especially near the goal line, to Latavius Murray. With Chase Edmonds also in the picture now, Gordon's fantasy floor is dangerously low in a Broncos offense that scores just 14.6 points per game, the lowest in the NFL. The 29-year-old could see more targets again if receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is unable to play, but he's become a volatile touchdown-dependent RB3 for fantasy. Gordon enters Week 11 as the RB41 in half-point PPR scoring.

  • Russell Wilson Has A Good Matchup Against Raiders

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has a good matchup in Week 11 against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, but can he deliver for fantasy managers? Wilson had his best fantasy performance against the Raiders back in Week 4, when he went 17-for-25 for 237 yards and two touchdowns, also adding a rushing TD on four carries for 29 yards. The Raiders are reeling, and their defense has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to signal-callers this year. However, Wilson heads into Week 11 action as the QB22 in overall fantasy points this year and could be without one of his favorite receivers in Jerry Jeudy (ankle). But if there was ever a week to stream the 33-year-old as a high-end QB2, Week 11 against the Raiders would be it.

  • KJ Hamler To Miss Some Time

    Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler (hamstring) will miss the next few weeks, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett. The third-year receiver missed last week's 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans because of the injury. Unfortunately, injuries aren't anything new to Hamler. The former Penn State wide receiver has missed 16 games over the past two years because of injuries. With Jerry Jeudy (ankle) also dealing with an injury, Kendall Hinton and Jalen Virgil could see an increase in snaps and targets this week against the Las Vegas Raiders.

  • Jerry Jeudy Could Play This Week

    The Denver Broncos believe they dodged a major injury with wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle), who is being considered day-to-day. There's a chance he will be able to play in Week 11 against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. Jeudy injured his ankle early in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans and was quickly ruled out, but his injury turned out to be mild in nature, so he may not have to miss any time at all. Fantasy managers will want to pay attention to the 23-year-old's practice status this week leading into Sunday's game. Before his injury on Sunday, Jeudy was becoming a better fantasy play with quarterback Russell Wilson looking to him more in previous games. If he's out or limited, Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton would be Denver's top two receivers.

  • Billy Turner Placed On Injured Reserve

    The Denver Broncos placed offensive tackle Billy Turner (knee) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday, so he'll miss at least the next four games. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Monday that Turner was week-to-week after he was injured in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. An already bad Broncos offense really can't afford anymore offensive line injuries with Cameron Fleming (quadriceps) also hurt. If Fleming cannot get the green light to play this Sunday against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, Quinn Bailey could get the start at right tackle. It's more bad news for quarterback Russell Wilson, who has already been sacked 29 times in eight games in 2022.

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy left the game against the Tennessee Titans after the first play for the offense and was carted to the locker room and quickly ruled out. However, his injury is considered to be mild, a huge sigh of relief for the Broncos as his injury looked like it could be serious. It's too early to know if he'll play against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11, so fantasy managers will need to monitor his status heading into a favorable matchup for wide receivers. The upside of all Broncos' players is limited in a poor offensive attack, but Jeudy has value as a big-play threat for Russell Wilson.

  • Jerry Jeudy Heading For MRI Exam On Monday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is getting an MRI exam on his injured ankle on Monday, but the belief is that he strained a muscle behind his ankle in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, according to a source. Jeudy couldn't put any pressure on his ankle on Sunday and couldn't run routes, which is why he didn't return to the game after leaving early in the first half. It sounds like there's a very real possibility that Jeudy could miss multiple games, but we'll have a better idea on his timetable once the MRI results come back. The 23-year-old was trending up heading into Sunday's game, catching 13 of 18 targets for 159 yards and a touchdown in two previous games, so it's a tough break for Jeudy and his fantasy managers. If he misses any time, Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton would operate as the top two receivers.

  • Broncos Defense Doesn't Do Much For Fantasy Managers

    The Denver Broncos defense limited the league's leading rusher, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, to just 53 rushing yards in the 17-10 loss in Week 10 on Sunday. They surrendered just over 300 total yards to Tennessee and once again gave the offense a chance to win the game. But in fantasy leagues, they didn't do much, sacking quarterback Ryan Tannehill only once while creating just one turnover (a fumble recovery). Denver's pass rush probably won't be as potent without Bradley Chubb the rest of the way, and they've struggled to generate consistent takeaways all year. However, a Week 11 date with the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders will likely put them on the streaming radar yet again. The Raiders offense has both tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) and receiver Hunter Renfrow (oblique) on Injured Reserve.

  • Brandon McManus Attempts Just Two Kicks In Week 10

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus wasn't very active in the 17-10 Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. McManus attempted just two kicks in the game, making a 39-yard field-goal attempt and his only extra-point try for just four points in most fantasy leagues. The 31-year-old has a strong leg and is one of the most accurate kickers in the league, but he's become a much too volatile streaming option at the kicker position for fantasy managers. McManus and the Broncos offense will face the Las Vegas Raiders for the second time this season next weekend. In the Week 4 affair, McManus made two of his three extra-point tries and his only field goal when the team scored a season-high 23 points.

  • Greg Dulcich Falls Flat In Loss To Tennessee

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich had his worst game as a professional in just his fourth NFL game in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, finishing with only one catch on four targets for a season-low 11 yards. Dulcich was on the TE1 radar in fantasy coming into this game after catching 12 of his first 17 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown in three games, but he was a disappointment against the Titans. It was even more frustrating due to the fact that receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) left with an injury early in the first half and never returned. It wasn't what his fantasy managers were hoping for after he led Denver in receiving in Week 8, but Dulcich will have TE1 potential in Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders if Jeudy is unable to play.

  • Kendall Hinton Has His Best Game Of The Season

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton had his best game of the 2022 season in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, mainly because Jerry Jeudy (ankle) left early in the first half and never returned. Hinton finished the 17-10 defeat with a season-high four catches for 62 yards on five targets. His 62 receiving yards were only four yards shy of the team high, and his five targets were third on the team. The 25-year-old entered Week 10 with six catches (seven targets) for 108 yards and no touchdowns, so he hasn't been anywhere near the fantasy radar in one of the worst offenses in the NFL. However, if Jeudy is unable to play in Week 11 against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, Hinton could have some very deep-league WR4/flex appeal if you're in a real pinch.

  • Courtland Sutton Bounces Back In Loss To Titans

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton finally avoided complete disappointment for his fantasy managers in the 17-10 Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Sutton caught six of a team-high 11 targets for 66 yards after totaling just six catches on 16 targets for 50 scoreless yards in the previous three games combined. It helped Sutton's cause when receiving teammate Jerry Jeudy (ankle) left the game early and never returned. Although the 27-year-old didn't find the end zone, he had five more targets than any other Broncos player on the day and had some nifty catches to sustain drives while averaging 11 yards per reception. If Jeudy is unable to play in Week 11 against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, Sutton will have obvious WR2 upside as quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target. Sutton had his only TD of the year in the first meeting against Vegas in Week 4.

  • Jalen Virgil Comes Out Of Nowhere With 66-Yard Touchdown

    Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Jalen Virgil came out of nowhere in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday for his first career reception, which just so happened to be a 66-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Russell Wilson in busted coverage from the Titans secondary. The 24-year-old from Appalachian State was mostly a return specialist in his college days, and he had yet to play a snap in the NFL with the Broncos before this game. It's safe to say that this was an anomaly with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) getting injured early in the game on Sunday. Fantasy managers shouldn't read anything into this fluky long TD. If Jeudy misses time with his injury, Kendall Hinton will likely operate as the Broncos' No. 2 receiver.

  • Latavius Murray Sees Team-High Nine Rushing Attempts

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray continued to share the backfield with Melvin Gordon III in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Murray had a team-high nine carries for just 24 yards (2.7 yards per carry), adding three catches on three targets for 23 receiving yards in the 17-10 loss. Gordon is the "starter," but Murray has out-carried him in three of the last four games and has also found the end zone two times. Recently acquired Chase Edmonds had three touches for only nine yards as the RB3 in this one, but he could be involved more down the stretch, further cementing both Murray and Gordon as volatile touchdown-dependent RB3/flex options in one of the worst offenses in football.

  • Melvin Gordon III Sees 11 Touches In Week 10

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III finished the 17-10 Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with seven rushing attempts for just 24 yards (3.4 yards per carry) while adding four catches on his six targets for 46 receiving yards. Gordon got the "start" and finished second on the team in targets after receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) went down with an injury early in the game. However, he was out-carried nine to seven and out-touched 12 to 11 by backfield mate Latavius Murray. The 29-year-old's receiving work was nice to see, but that will probably only continue if Jeudy misses additional time with his injury. Chase Edmonds (only three touches) could get more involved moving forward, too. In this low-scoring offense, Gordon's low-volume role makes him a volatile touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.

  • Russell Wilson Throws For 286 Yards, One Touchdown

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson went 21-for-42 for 286 yards in the 17-10 Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The 286 yards were his second-highest total of the season, but he threw only one touchdown, was intercepted once and was sacked six times for 38 yards. Wilson ran the ball seven times for just eight yards. It didn't help that he lost one of his favorite targets, receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle), to an injury early in the first half. The 33-year-old continued to mostly run for his life behind a bad offensive line while dinking and dunking, averaging a weak 6.8 yards per attempt. It was a very mediocre effort against a defense that had been friendly to QBs this season. Wilson could have better luck in a Week 11 rematch against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, but he can't be trusted as much more than a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

  • Broncos Hoping Jerry Jeudy's Injury Isn't Serious

    The Denver Broncos are hoping that wide receiver Jerry Jeudy's (ankle) injury isn't serious. "We're hoping that we dodged a bullet there," head coach Nathaniel Hackett said. Jeudy was injured early in the Week 10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, was carted to the locker room and never returned. Before leaving the contest, Jeudy failed to reel in his only target from quarterback Russell Wilson. Courtland Sutton dominated the target share (11) with Jeudy banged up, with running back Melvin Gordon III having the second-most targets with six. Fantasy managers will have to keep a close eye on Jeudy's progress next week to see if he'll have a chance of facing the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11. If he can't play, Kendall Hinton would likely continue to serve as Denver's No. 2 wideout.

  • Jerry Jeudy Downgraded To Out Sunday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. He suffered the injury on the opening drive and was helped to the medical tent. Jeudy finishes the day with one target and zero catches. Denver will be forced to proceed with Courtland Sutton, Greg Dulcich, and Kendall Hinton as its top pass-catchers.

  • Jerry Jeudy Questionable To Return Sunday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is questionable to return against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. He suffered a painful injury on the opening drive and was helped to the medical tent. If he is unable to return, Denver will be forced to proceed with Courtland Sutton, Greg Dulcich, and Kendall Hinton as its top pass-catchers.

  • Kendall Hinton Active For Broncos

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton (illness) is active for the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans. Hinton came into this one listed as questionable after dealing with an illness this week. With KJ Hamler (hamstring) ruled out, Hinton should serve as the team's No. 3 receiver behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. However, tight end Greg Dulcich will most likely be ahead of Hinton on the target totem pole on Sunday, and in Denver's lackluster offense, Hinton is not a realistic option for starting fantasy lineups against Tennessee. The 25-year-old pass-catcher has only six catches on seven targets for 108 yards and no touchdowns for Denver in six games this season.

  • Justin Simmons Won't Play In Week 10

    Denver Broncos safety Justin Simmons (knee) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to KOA's Benjamin Allbright. The 28-year-old had been listed as questionable coming out of the bye week but evidently needs a little more time to recover. The 28-year-old has appeared in four games this season, racking up 23 tackles, one fumble recovery, and one interception.

  • KJ Hamler Ruled Out Against Titans

    Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Week 10 contest against the Tennessee Titans. Hamler was injured in practice on Wednesday and didn't practice the rest of the week. With Kendall Hinton (illness) questionable, the Broncos could be short-handed on receiving depth behind starters Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy this weekend. If Hinton is unable to play, Montrell Washington will likely serve as the No. 3 wideout. Hamler has no business being rostered in 12-team fantasy leagues, as he's recorded just seven catches on 14 targets for 165 yards and no touchdowns in seven games this year in the Broncos' disappointing offense. His absence will open up a few targets for Denver's other pass-catchers against Tennessee.

  • Broncos Defense Must Stop NFL's Leading Rusher

    The Denver Broncos defense has been strong this year while limiting opponents to just 16.5 points per game in eight contests, which is the second-best mark in the NFL. They also allow the second-fewest total yards per game at 288.4. And they'll be facing a Tennessee Titans offense that scores just 18.6 points per game. How well they fare in Week 10 will come down to whether they can stop the NFL's leading rusher, Derrick Henry, on the ground. Denver's D won't be as potent after trading away top pass-rusher Bradley Chubb last week, and they're allowing 122.6 rushing yards per game. They'll be worth streaming in fantasy this weekend for their ability to limit points, but they will need to create turnovers, something they've struggled with in 2022, in order to post a big game against Tennessee.

  • Brandon McManus A Volatile Streaming Option

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus just hasn't been given enough kicking opportunities in Denver's lackluster offense to be a consistent fantasy option. Heading into Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans, he ranks as the No. 18 kicker in fantasy scoring. He's tied for fourth with 19 field-goal attempts, which is good, but he's also tied for 20th in the league with just 10 extra-point tries in eight games played. McManus is going up against a Titans defense this Sunday that has allowed only 5.8 fantasy points per game to opposing kickers, which makes it a bad matchup. The 31-year-old has a strong leg and is usually dependable, but fantasy managers can probably find better upside streaming options this weekend at kicker.

  • Greg Dulcich Has Become A TE1

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich has gotten to work quickly in the first three games of his NFL career. He debuted in Week 6 with two catches, 44 yards and a touchdown on 71 percent of the offensive snaps. Dulcich followed that up with 10 catches (14 targets) for 138 yards in his next two games before last week's bye. The 22-year-old led the team in receiving in Week 8 and has a nice matchup on tap in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans, a defense that is allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position in half-point PPR scoring. At the most shallow position in fantasy, you can't argue with Dulcich's 17 targets in his three games played. He could only become a bigger weapon for quarterback Russell Wilson moving forward.
