Broncos TE Greg Dulcich was knocked out in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Rams with a hamstring injury. He caught 4 of 8 targets for 39 yards and a score before exiting. We'll see if the rookie can make it back for Week 17's meeting with the Chiefs.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. It’ll be his first action since Week 13.

Broncos RB Latavius Murray (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He got in 2 limited practices this week and was listed as questionable, but we haven’t heard anything about him being limited in this one.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (hamstring) enters Week 16 listed as questionable after logging limited practice all week. Teammate WR Kendall Hinton (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's contest vs. the Rams. Prior to getting hurt in Week 13, Sutton had been a favorite target of QB Russell Wilson. The Rams present a fairly neutral matchup for fantasy purposes. This is a matter of how much fantasy managers should trust Sutton in his first game. We view the wideout as a high-end WR4/deep league flex option in Week 16.

Broncos RB Latavius Murray (foot) was a limited practice on Friday and carries a questionable injury designation for Week 16's game vs. the Rams. On Thursday, Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said that multiple players, including Murray, were held out of practice due to the turf surface. The game will be played on a turf field at SoFi Stadium, and Hackett believes the limited exposure was best. Definitely an odd quote but it does provide some context. Murray is the RB16 overall in PPR scoring since Week 11 largely on the back of heavy usage. That said, the Rams are the 7th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs in 2022. Murray is best viewed as a flex option in Week 16.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion on both Wednesday and Thursday this week. Sutton is seemingly on track to return from his hamstring injury for Sunday's game against the Rams. He led the Broncos with 7.6 targets per game across 7 outings with a healthy QB Russell Wilson and healthy WR Jerry Jeudy earlier this season. But Sutton still ranked just 41st among WRs in fantasy points per game in that span.

Broncos RB Latavius Murray (foot) did not practice on Thursday after logging limited participation the day before. We consider Murray an RB3/flex option in Week 16 vs. the Rams. As such, if you have safer options who play in Saturday games, you may want to pivot there. The schedule handed fantasy managers so many Saturday games this week that the waiting game may prove to be difficult on this front.

Broncos RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since Week 11 -- his 2nd game with the Broncos. Edmonds will not be a fantasy option the rest of this season, but his return could ding RB Latavius Murray's volume a tad. We'll see if Edmonds is able to play vs. the Rams on Sunday.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich managed just 1 catch for 11 yards on 2 targets in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. He ranked 2nd on the team in routes, according to Pro Football Focus, trailing only WR Jerry Jeudy. Yet Eric Tomlinson led Denver TEs in targets (3), catches (3) and yards (28) and snared the team's only TD reception. He did so despite running only 6 total routes, 22 fewer than Dulcich and 12 fewer than TE Eric Saubert. Jeudy led the team in targets (8), receptions (7) and yards (76). QB Brett Rypien totaled 197 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on 21-of-26 passing.

The Cardinals somehow managed to let Broncos RB Latavius Murray run for 130 yards and a TD on 24 carries in Sunday's Denver victory. Murray hit runs of 35 and 21 yards, averaging 5.4 per rush overall. RB Marlon Mack ran 5 times for 37 yards and a TD, adding 4 receptions for 26 yards on 4 targets. His target count tied for 2nd on the team, and Mack ranked 2nd along in catches. Murray caught his only target for 12 yards. RB Devine Ozigbo mixed in for 2 carries for 2 yards.

Broncos WRs Courtland Sutton (hamstring) and Kendall Hinton (hamstring) are out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. That leaves some combination of WRs Brandon Johnson, Jalen Virgil, Freddie Swain and Montrell Washington behind WR Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy and TE Greg Dulcich should be the clear top 2 options in the passing game.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. HC Nathaniel Hackett said Friday that Wilson has actually been medically cleared, but the team is holding him out as a precaution. QB Brett Rypien will make his 2nd start of the season this weekend.

Broncos WRs Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton remained out on Thursday with their hamstring injuries. They're both looking unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend, which would leave WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Greg Dulcich as the clear top-2 options in the passing game.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson was limited in practice on Thursday. This marks an improvement from yesterday, when Wilson was sidelined. We’ll continue to track his progress through the concussion protocol. If active, he’ll profile as a QB2 against Arizona. Denver’s currently implied for only 19.5 points.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's looking unlikely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals, which would leave Brett Rypien under center.

Broncos WRs Courtland Sutton (hamstring) and Kendall Hinton (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll see how they progress throughout the week. If they're unable to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Greg Dulcich will be the clear top 2 receiving options for Denver.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett admitted Monday that "it doesn't look good" for RB Mike Boone to play again this season after going down with an ankle injury in the loss to the Chiefs. That'll leave Denver's backfield to Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack the rest of the way. Murray tallied 8 carries and 5 targets to Mack's 3 carries and 3 targets vs. Kansas City.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy led the Broncos in every receiving category Sunday, but 1 made his fantasy line special. Jeudy caught 8 of 9 targets for 73 yards and 3 TDs in the loss to the Chiefs, snagging 2 scoring tosses from QB Russell Wilson and another from QB Brett Rypien after Wilson left with a concussion. The TDs obviously made for Jeudy's biggest fantasy line of the year, producing his 2nd PPR total of 20+ points. (The last came in Week 1.) TE Greg Dulcich ranked 2nd with 8 targets but caught only 3 for 42 yards. WR Kendall Hinton checked in 3rd with 6 targets and 2nd with 5 catches (for 38 yards).

Before a concussion knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, Broncos QB Russell Wilson threw for 247 yards and 3 TDs. That marked the 1st time this year he had thrown more than 2 TD passes and just the 2nd time he had tallied more than 1. Wilson reached 20 fantasy points for just the 2nd time all year, adding 57 yards on the ground. We'll see how soon he can make it back from the concussion, but the injury and string of terrible fantasy outings before Sunday makes him tough to pay any attention to in 1-QB fantasy football formats.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson exited early in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs to be checked for a concussion. QB Brett Rypien has replaced him. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson has been ruled out with a concussion.
