Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy injured his right arm in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. Texans. He went straight into the medical tent. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Jeudy is questionable to return with a shoulder injury.

Update: Jeudy has been ruled out.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton tallied 4 catches for 72 yards in Monday’s loss at Seattle. Sutton tallied 30 yards on a scramble-drill play, then drew an overthrown end zone target on the very next snap. Later, he drew a pass interference call on another deep pass. On the day, Sutton matched Jerry Jeudy in targets (7). It’s only a matter of time before the deep balls hit here, especially as the entire offense settles into a new system. Next up is a home date with Houston and top draft pick (CB) Derek Stingley.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy finished Week 1 with 4 grabs, 102 yards and 1 score. His first target didn’t come until late in the 2nd quarter, but Jeudy made it count on a 67-yard deep ball on 3rd and 2. He roasted the CB on that one and dodged 2 tacklers en route to the end zone. Jeudy added a late drop on a short-range pass, but the takeaway here remains overwhelmingly positive. He matched Courtland Sutton in targets (7) and led the team in yardage. Next up is a home game with Houston.

One of the biggest fantasy football questions in Denver this year is who will lead the team in receiving, both in terms of targets and production. ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold says a trend has emerged: "[Russell] Wilson has shown in training camp he's going to move the ball around to find the matchups he likes. But he's also shown in practices and the joint workouts with the Dallas Cowboys that when he really needs a completion or has been moved off his spot by the pass rush, he's going to look for [Courtland] Sutton. There is always the question of whether those tendencies will hold up in games. [Jerry] Jeudy is too good a route-runner -- and Wilson has spent plenty of time working with him -- to not be a factor (Jeudy often attends the quarterback meetings)." Legwold goes on to compare the situation to when Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker both put up big numbers with Peyton Manning in 2012. Thomas beat Decker by 19 targets and 9 receptions that season, but both finished among the top 9 PPR wideouts. "If both are healthy all the way through the season, they're both going to likely have their best years," Legwold adds. If we get production like that, this question ultimately won't matter because both WRs will have paid off their ADPs. Nevertheless, it's a question we'll all keep trying to answer until fantasy-draft season ends.

Broncos WR Tim Patrick tore his right ACL in Tuesday's practice, insider Mike Klis reports. Patrick will miss the entire 2022 season. The timing of the injury at least gives Patrick a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2023 campaign. He signed a 3-year, $34 million extension last November. We had Patrick projected for 85 targets, so this opens up a lot of potential volume for Denver's other pass catchers. WR Jerry Jeudy, WR Courtland Sutton, TE Albert Okwuegbunam and TE Greg Dulcich all get boosts in the rankings. But the biggest winner is WR K.J. Hamler, who has a clear path to the #3 job if he can make it back from last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett complimented WR Jerry Jeudy for his work early in training camp. “I love the way he’s attacked this training camp up to this point,” the new HC said. “I know it’s early, but he’s been really great, seeing him around working hard and everything. He’s a very focused person and asks great questions, coaches me, calls me out a couple times, which is awesome. He’s definitely capable of doing a lot of different things.” The Broncos aren’t yet in pads, but it’s a positive development following Jeudy’s offseason groin injury. He remains a WR2.

Nick Kosmider of The Athletic expects Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy to lead the team in receptions. That matches our expectation. Kosmider writes that Denver’s offense will “better utilize Jeudy in space and allow him to be the target of deep attempts from Russell Wilson.” The Broncos, of course, are breaking in a new offense led by HC Nathaniel Hackett and OC Justin Outten. See where Jeudy stacks up at a crowded WR position.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy left Monday's OTA session with a groin issue, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. HC Nathaniel Hackett called it a "little tweak" afterward. This doesn't seem like a significant concern for the time being. But, as we saw with Washington WR Curtis Samuel last year, groin injuries can be tricky. We'll keep a close eye on Jeudy when training camp opens next month.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that a judge has signed off on the district attorney's motion to drop charges against Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy. That aligns with the mid-May request by Jeudy's girlfriend to have those charges dropped. It also closes the case against Jeudy, almost certainly leaving no risk of further action by the NFL.

The Associated Press reports that Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy's girlfriend on Friday asked a judge to dismiss the misdemeanor charges against him. Jeudy was arrested after allegedly locking some of the woman's belongings in his car to keep her from leaving town. The woman said she contacted police merely to "monitor the situation." We'll see if this case goes anywhere else, but Jeudy doesn't appear to be in danger of facing any league discipline.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy has been released from jail on bond. He appeared in court beforehand, where a judge said that there was no threat of physical violence during the incident. The female victim in the case (reportedly the mother of Jeudy's son) said she never felt threatened by Jeudy and doesn't feel threatened now. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation but do not expect Jeudy to be suspended.

3:45pm EDT 5/12/22

According to beat writer Zac Stevens, Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was arrested Thursday morning in Colorado. We don’t have any further details at this time, but we’ll share them as the story develops.

Update: Jeudy faces charges of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor. This doesn't look like an incident that will draw a suspension, so we're not adjusting Jeudy's projections right now.

The Broncos fired HC Vic Fangio. He won just 7, 5 and 7 games across 3 seasons with Denver. No word yet on OC Pat Shurmur, but we imagine he'll also be gone. We'll see who GM George Paton tabs as his new HC.

Update: The Broncos have also fired OC Pat Shurmur, according to insider Mike Klis.

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick have been activated from the COVID list. They'll be back for Saturday's game vs. the Chiefs.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was placed on the COVID list on Friday, making him a long shot to play vs. the Chargers on Sunday. WR Tim Patrick is also on the COVID list, so Denver will likely be down to WRs Courtland Sutton, Kendall Hinton and Diontae Spencer. Sutton and TEs Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam should get target boosts this weekend, but it's still tough to get excited about any of them with QB Drew Lock.

Broncos WR Tim Patrick has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. Patrick has averaged 5 targets per game this season, so his absence leaves some extra volume for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant. It'd still be tough to trust any of those guys in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Broncos HC Vic Fangio confirmed on Wednesday that QB Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. QB Drew Lock will make his 1st start of the season in that one. The 3rd-year QB is the polar opposite of Bridgewater: big-armed, aggressive but inaccurate. We'll see exactly what Lock means for Denver's WRs, but we'd try to avoid Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos and WR Courtland Sutton have agreed to a 4-year, $60.8 million extension with $34.9 million guaranteed, his agency tells NFL Network. Sutton was set to hit free agency in March but is now signed with Denver through the 2025 season. Denver also recently extended WR Tim Patrick through 2024. WR Jerry Jeudy is also under team control through 2024. Now if the Broncos could just find a QB ...
