ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos and Saints are "finalizing compensation" that would allow Sean Payton to become Denver's HC. The big potential winner here, fantasy wise, is QB Russell Wilson. He'll come off easily the worst performance of his career to work with the HC that helped Drew Brees become Drew Brees in New Orleans. Of course, Brees was just 27 in his 1st season with New Orleans, after the Chargers allowed his rookie contract to expire and Brees to hit the open market. Russell Wilson just completed his age-34 season. Plenty of surrounding talent should remain, with WRs Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy still under contract, TE Greg Dulcich entering Year 2, and WR Tim Patrick and RB Javonte returning from knee injuries. Among his 15 years as Saints HC, Payton had 13 consecutive offenses rank among the top 10 in total yards. His teams also finished top-10 in points 12 times.

Update: Schefter reports that Denver is sending its 2023 first-rounder and 2024 second-rounder to the Saints for the rights to Payton and New Orleans' 2024 third-rounder.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) logged full practice on Friday and doesn't carry an injury tag ahead of Week 18 vs. the Chargers. Jeudy ranks as the WR8 overall in PPR since Week 13 with 39 targets in that span. The Chargers' defense presents a tough draw, ranking 5th-best in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA over the last 3 weeks. Volume alone should keep Jeudy within WR2 consideration in fantasy lineups this week.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Thursday for the 2nd day in a row. Friday's report will give us a better idea about Jeudy's chances for suiting up in Week 18 vs. the Chargers. Check back again tomorrow for further analysis.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) logged limited participation at Wednesday's practice. It's too soon to tell if Jeudy is in jeopardy of missing Week 18 vs. the Chargers. Check back as we learn more about his status as the week evolves.

Broncos RB Marlon Mack will miss Sunday's finale vs. the Chargers with the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 17, according to insider Mike Klis. That'll leave Denver's backfield to Latavius Murray and Chase Edmonds. Murray tallied 12 carries and 6 targets to Edmonds' 7 carries and 3 targets in last week's loss to the Chiefs.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson scored twice on the ground in Sunday's 3-point loss to the Chiefs. He totaled 27 rushing yards on 4 carries, including the TDs from 16 and 4 yards out. Wilson added 222 yards and a TD (plus an INT) passing, finding TE Albert Okwuegbunam for a 25-yard score. WR Jerry Jeudy led the team in targets (8) and catches (7) but collected just 38 yards. WR Courtland Sutton followed with a 4-44 receiving line on 6 looks. Denver closes out vs. the Chargers at home in Week 18.

Broncos RB Marlon Mack hurt his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and is questionable to return. His absence leaves Denver's backfield to Latavius Murray and Chase Edmonds.

11:30am EST 1/1/23

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so it’s safe to assume that Jeudy won’t be at 100% today. See where Jeudy sits in the Week 17 WR Rankings.

8:40pm EST 12/30/22

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring) has been placed on IR. He'd already been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and will now also miss the finale. Dulcich dealt with a few different injuries this year but flashed when healthy, finishing with a 33-411-2 line in 10 games. He currently ranks 18th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and 21st in yards per route run among 39 TEs with 30+ targets. We're not optimistic about QB Russell Wilson's chances of bouncing back in 2023, but Dulcich will be worth considering as a TE2 in early 2023 fantasy football drafts.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (hamstring) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury tag for Week 17 vs. the Chiefs. WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) was a limited participant all week and is listed as questionable. An absence from Jeudy would create an interesting opportunity for Sutton to step up in a neutral matchup vs. the Chiefs. However, Jeudy is the wideout we prefer for fantasy purposes. Jeudy has received a whopping 27 targets over the last 3 games and stands to be a high-end WR2 option if he suits up. Sutton did fairly well last week after missing a pair of games with this same hamstring issue. He's a WR3/flex option on Sunday. WR Kendall Hinton (hamstring) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Chiefs. The rookie didn't practice at all this week due to this ailment. It's onto 2023 with Dulcich for fantasy purposes.

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Courtland Sutton (hamstring) participated in a limited capacity again on Thursday. Friday's report will give us a more concrete outlook of their statuses for Week 17 vs. the Chiefs. The same goes for TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring), who did not practice for the 2nd day in a row. We'll let you know more tomorrow.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant at practice on Wednesday. With Week 17's game vs. the Chiefs scheduled for a Sunday kickoff, there's plenty of time for Dulcich to increase activity and receive the green light to play. Continue to monitor this situation as the week unfolds.

Broncos RB Latavius Murray (NIR/rest) received the day off from practice on Wednesday. It's not unusual for veterans to sit out Wednesday practices, so no need for alarm. We'll check back on Murray's status for Week 17 vs. the Chiefs tomorrow.

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Courtland Sutton (hamstring) both participated in a limited fashion on Wednesday. It's still early enough in the week for both pass-catchers to suit up for Week 17 vs. the Chiefs potentially. We'll have a better idea of their statuses tomorrow.

Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory and Rams G Oday Aboushi had their suspensions reduced to fines on appeal. The league suspended both players 1 game for fighting after Sunday's game. But they'll both be available to their teams for Week 17 now.

The NFL has suspended Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory and Rams G Oday Aboushi for a game after the 2 threw punches at each other after Sunday's game. That means Gregory will miss the final week of the fantasy football season in most leagues, while the Rams will go without a player who spent the past 2 weeks in the starting lineup. That won't help an O-line that has already ranked among the league's worst this season.

The Broncos have fired HC Nathaniel Hackett, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. So Hackett doesn't even make it a full season in Denver. His tenure was a disaster from the start and ends with an embarrassing 51-14 loss to the Rams on Christmas. We'll see who the Broncos tab as their interim HC, but we doubt the move has much of a fantasy impact over the final 2 weeks of the season.

Update: Senior assistant coach Jerry Rosburg has been named Denver's interim HC, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The 67-year-old has spent much of the last 2 decades as a special teams coordinator and has no head-coaching experience at any level.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson went just 15-of-27 passing for 214 yards in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Rams. He tossed 1 TD vs. 3 INTs and took 6 sacks in the game. Wilson gave way to QB Brett Rypien for the team's final 2 possessions (1 of which produced a Rams pick-6). We'd bet on Wilson returning to the lineup for Week 17 against the Chiefs but would hope to not have to use him in fantasy football lineups.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy caught 6 balls for 117 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams, leading the team in both categories and targets (10). WR Courtland Sutton returned from his hamstring injury to post a 5-64 receiving line on 7 targets. TE Greg Dulcich grabbed the team's only TD among 4 catches for 39 on 8 targets. Denver closes out the fantasy football season (in most leagues) at Kansas City. Denver tallied 263 yards and 4 TDs passing in the Week 14 meeting with the Chiefs, who have been a slightly positive scoring matchup for WRs but strongly positive for QBs.
