K.J. Hamler Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Broncos waived WR K.J. Hamler with a non-football illness designation. Hamler announced that he's been diagnosed with pericarditis, a mild heart irritation. “I’ve got a great treatment plan with medicine and am taking a quick break to get this all taken care of so I can get back to doing what I love," Hamler said. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Hamler is expected to miss "weeks, not months" and that the Broncos would eventually like to bring him back. We'll keep you updated on Hamler's status, but he's off the fantasy radar for now.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler has been placed on the non-football injury list to open training camp. He's still recovering from March's partially torn pectoral. Hamler was expected to miss 4-6 months, which has his availability for the start of the season in jeopardy. Hamler has no place on redraft fantasy rosters.

The Broncos signed WR Marquez Callaway to a one-year deal. He spent his first two NFL seasons under new Broncos HC Sean Payton in New Orleans, tallying 21-213-0 and 46-698-6 receiving lines. Callaway joins Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and K.J. Hamler in Denver's WR room. Jeudy and Sutton have been bandied about as trade candidates (although Payton recently shot those rumors down), while Patrick (ACL) and Hamler (pectoral) are rehabbing major injuries. There's a chance that opportunity opens up for Callaway in Denver, although we'd still consider him no more than a last-round flier in best-ball drafts for now.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler recently underwent surgery to repair a partially torn pectoral he suffered while training, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Hamler is expected to be sidelined for four to six months, which means he'll miss the entire offseason program and potentially training camp. It's just another setback for a guy who's piled up a lengthy injury history. Hamler is off the redraft radar at this point -- and his dynasty value is fading fast.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) has been placed on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 4 games. Hamler is safe to drop from all redraft rosters. The 2020 2nd-rounder has played in just 23 games through nearly 3 NFL seasons and is running low on dynasty value.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Ravens. He returned to a limited practice on Friday for the first time since going down in Week 10. We’ll see if Jeudy suits up for Sunday’s game vs. the Ravens, but he’d be a risky fantasy play if he does. WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) remains out for Week 13

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and K.J. Hamler (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That has both guys trending toward missing this weekend's game vs. the Ravens. We'll see if they're able to get on the practice field 1 of these next 2 days.

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and K.J. Hamler (hamstring) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. WR Kendall Hinton (shoulder) is listed as questionable. WR Courtland Sutton and TE Greg Dulcich should be Denver's top 2 targets in this weekend's plus matchup.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler will miss the "next few weeks" with his hamstring injury, HC Nathaniel Hackett said Wednesday. Hamler has not been able to stay healthy as a pro, appearing in just 23 games over the past 3 seasons. He's not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues -- and his dynasty value is fading fast.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Hamler is now looking unlikely to play vs. the Titans this weekend, which would leave behind a few extra targets for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Greg Dulcich.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's a new injury coming off the bye week. We'll keep an eye on Hamler over the next few days, but he shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is active for tonight’s game vs. the 49ers. With WR Jerry Jeudy playing, Hamler is just a DFS tournament flier in this one.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should be good to go. Hamler’s Week 3 fantasy projection depends heavily on WR Jerry Jeudy’s status.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (rib, shoulder) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday night, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow. WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. After playing 40 snaps in the opener, Hamler missed practice all last week and was inactive for the Texans game. It looks like he has a shot to return for Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers -- and is certainly needed with WR Jerry Jeudy banged up.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. It looks like he suffered a setback after playing 40 snaps in the opener. Hamler’s absence this weekend frees up a few targets for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Albert Okwuegbunam.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) has missed the first 2 practices of the week. He played 40 snaps in last week's opener but might have suffered a setback after last year's torn ACL and dislocated hip. We'll see how Hamler is listed on Friday's final injury report.

7:21pm EDT 9/12/22

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is active for tonight's game vs. the Seahawks. He'd been listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. There's a chance that Hamler is on some type of snap count tonight, his 1st action since last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hip, knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week. We're expecting Hamler to be active on Monday, but it's possible that he's on some type of snap count in his first action since last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip. Hamler would be a shaky Week 1 fantasy play.
