Bottom Line

Mims didn’t find enough playing time as a rookie last year to be a fantasy factor. But he flashed big-play ability in limited action and had a strong prospect profile coming into the league.

Jerry Jeudy’s departure gives Mims an opportunity to earn a much bigger role in 2024. Highlight his name as a later-round sleeper in fantasy drafts.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Mims caught 22 passes for 317 yards and one TD in 16 games as a rookie last year.
  • He ranked 113th among WRs in PPR points per game and 107th in non-PPR.
  • 49% of Mims’ receiving yards came in Weeks 2 and 3.
    • He finished those weeks WR17 and WR41 in PPR points.
    • He didn’t finish better than WR46 in any other week and was WR70 or worse 12 times.
  • Mims was a part-time player for the majority of the season. He played just 38% of Denver’s offensive snaps across his 16 games and only reached a 50% snap rate twice (69% in Week 10 and 56% in Week 11).
  • Mims was deployed primarily as a deep threat.
    • His 15.2-yard average target depth ranked 11th among 112 qualifying WRs.
    • 34% of his targets came 20+ yards downfield – the 10th highest rate among 119 qualifiers.
    • Mims caught five of those 11 deep targets for 246 yards and one TD. His 97.3 Pro Football Focus deep receiving grade ranked 30th among 119 qualifying WRs.
  • Mims’ 11.4 yards per target ranked fifth among 112 WRs with 30+ targets last year.
  • But his 1.54 yards per route – a better measure of WR play – ranked just 53rd.
  • Mims averaged just 0.23 yards per route in those two games in which he topped a 50% snap rate.
  • Mims made bigger contributions last year in the return game. He averaged 16.4 yards on kick returns and a huge 26.5 yards on punt returns, fueled by a 99-yard punt-return TD in Week 3. He was selected to the Pro Bowl as a returner.
  • The Broncos made Mims the 63rd overall pick of the 2023 NFL Draft. He led Oklahoma in receiving yards all three years on campus, leaving school with a huge 19.5 yards-per-catch average. Then he blazed a 4.38-second 40 time at the Combine.

What to Expect in 2024

  • The Broncos traded WR Jerry Jeudy to the Browns this offseason. He’s ranked second on the team in targets each of the past two seasons, with shares of 17.5% and 17.0%.
  • Denver returns WRs Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, Brandon Johnson, and Lil’Jordan Humphrey and added WRs Troy Franklin and Josh Reynolds.
  • HC Sean Payton said in March that he anticipates a bigger role for Mims this season.
    • "I really think the only thing that really stopped his progress as a receiver was us and trying to find roles,” Payton said. “The key is for us, and I say us as coaches in game planning, is evolving ... We'll see [Mims' role] expand.''
  • The 2023 Broncos ranked 24th or lower in offensive plays, pass rate, and pass attempts. With the same coaching staff and rookie QB Bo Nix likely at the controls, this projects as a conservative, run-leaning offense again this season.
  • Nix is coming off two strong seasons at Oregon. But he struggled at Auburn prior to that and was generally viewed as a second-round prospect.
  • Nix is unlikely to be a significant upgrade – and might be a downgrade – on Russell Wilson, who ranked a respectable 19th in Pro Football Focus passing grade last year.
  • Nix rarely threw deep at Oregon, registering the 13th lowest rate of passes 20+ yards downfield last year. But he was effective on deep balls, ranking sixth in completion rate, 14th in passer rating, and fifth in PFF passing grade on throws of 20+ yards.

Jerry Jeudy, WR CLE

8:07am EST 12/31/23

Jerry Jeudy expected in, Marvin Mims expected out Week 17

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (illness) is expected to play vs. the Chargers today, while WR Marvin Mims (hamstring) is not, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mims seemingly hurt his hamstring on Thursday and then did not practice on Friday. With WR Courtland Sutton (concussion) also out, the Broncos are down to Jeudy, Brandon Johnson, Lil'Jordan Humphrey, and Phillip Dorsett at WR. Jeudy is the only viable play in season-long fantasy leagues.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. WRs Jerry Jeudy (illness) and Marvin Mims (hamstring) are listed as questionable. Jeudy didn't practice on Friday but should be fine by Sunday. Mims' availability looks much shakier after being added to the injury report on Thursday and then missing practice on Friday. We'll look for updates on those guys on Sunday morning.

The Broncos placed WR Brandon Johnson (hamstring) on IR. Johnson has seemingly been standing in the way of a full-time role for WR Marvin Mims. But before you get too excited about the rookie, we need to tell you that Denver elevated WR Tre'Quan Smith from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Smith, of course, has a history with HC Sean Payton from their New Orleans days. We'll keep a close eye on Mims' usage vs. the Chiefs on Sunday, but he'd still be a total flier in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Broncos WR Brandon Johnson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then didn't practice on Friday, so he looks legitimately iffy for this one. Johnson isn't a fantasy factor, but his absence might force Denver to put WR Marvin Mims in something close to a full-time role.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) is not expected to play vs. the Raiders today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jeudy got in three limited practices this week and should have a good chance to play Week 2. His absence today leaves Courtland Sutton and Marvin Mims as Denver's top two WRs. TE Greg Dulcich could also pick up extra routes and targets with Jeudy out.
