Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 13
Jeudy had 4 receptions for 77 yards on 6 targets in Week 13’s loss to the Chiefs.
Jeudy led the Broncos in receiving yards as he slightly edged out stud RB Javonte Williams by 1. Jeudy tied for 2nd on the team with 6 targets but was the only Bronco to flash any juice as he averaged almost 20 yards per catch.
Jeudy has been a disappointment this season as he dealt with multiple injuries and doesn’t have any games with 80+ yards or 10+ targets.
Perhaps Jeudy will show some upside in the last month of the season, but it has not happened yet.
Jeudy should be viewed as a WR3 in a great Week 14 matchup against the Lions.
Week 10
Jeudy offered limited production in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles but continued his encouraging usage. His 9 targets led all Broncos, checking in 3 ahead of Noah Fant and Tim Patrick, who tied for 2nd.

In his 3 games back, Jeudy has now seen target shares of 15.4%, 28.6% and 25%. Jeudy’s playing time has trended up. He played on 77.4% of Teddy Bridgewater’s dropbacks in his Week 8 return game. That climbed to 80% in Week 9 and then 89.5% vs. the Eagles.

Bridgewater’s limited upside as a passer figures to challenge Jeudy a bit, but we’ll take that level of usage and treat Jeudy as a mid-range WR3. The remaining schedule isn’t kind to WR fantasy scoring, but that figures to hurt Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick on the outside more than slot man Jeudy, who can get by on target volume.
Week 9
He made a team-high 6 catches on 8 targets for 69 yards. At Dallas, the Broncos threw passes behind the line of scrimmage and let Jeudy gain yardage on his own. The strategy worked in a game when the Broncos totaled a season-high 190 yards against a porous rushing defense.
Jeudy appears to have recovered from a high ankle injury that sidelined him for 6 weeks. The 2nd-year WR has caught 16 of 19 targets this season. He is a reliable 3rd-down receiver. In his NFL career, 48 of his 68 receptions have gone for a 1st down. The down side is that he has scored just 3 TDs. Jeudy is a better choice in PPR formats.
Week 8
Jeudy was a tad limited in his return from Week 1’s high-ankle sprain. He played 72% of Denver’s offensive snaps and ran a route on 77% of pass plays. Both marks trailed WRs Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick.

Jeudy tied for the team lead in targets … with 4. QB Teddy Bridgewater attempted just 26 passes and spread it around, with 7 Broncos garnering 3-4 targets.

Jeudy at least caught all 4 of his looks for 39 yards, highlighted by 18- and 7-yard grabs to set up RB Melvin Gordon’s game-winning TD.

Jeudy looked good in this one and, most importantly, didn’t re-injure that ankle. His playing time should grow going forward. But it’s tough to project big volume in a conservative Broncos offense with a deep group of pass-catchers.

Consider Jeudy a weekly WR3 with upside.
Week 1
Jeudy looked like the complete package in Week 1 before his day was cut short due to a high-ankle sprain early in the 3rd quarter. He led the team in yards with 72 on 6 receptions, being targeted 7 times. When healthy, he will be an absolute nightmare for teams to plan for.
The Broncos placed him on IR after the game, and Jeudy is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. We’d try to keep him stashed on fantasy benches as a potential difference-maker in the 2nd half of the season.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Opportunity wasn’t a problem for Jeudy as a rookie last year. He ranked 21st among WRs with 113 targets and 6th with 1,541 air yards.
  • But Jeudy finished just 46th among WRs in PPR points and 44th in non-PPR.
  • QB play was the primary problem. Denver ranked 26th in passing yards, 25th in passing TDs, 31st in completion rate and 24th in yards per attempt.
  • Pro Football Focus charted just 58.0% of Jeudy’s targets as catchable. That ranked 83rd among 84 WRs with 50+ targets.
  • Jeudy also contributed to the inefficiency, though, with 12 drops and an 18.8% drop rate -- both the 2nd worst marks in the NFL.
  • Jeudy dropped just 8.3% of his catchable targets in his final college season. We’re not overly concerned about his hands.
  • Speaking of his college days, Jeudy was an awesome-looking prospect coming out of Alabama. He posted a 68-1,315-14 line and won the Biletnikoff Award as a sophomore and followed that up with a 77-1,163-10 line as a junior. He was 1 of the best route runners we’ve seen coming out in a while and drew comparisons ranging from Keenan Allen to Stefon Diggs to Odell Beckham. Denver took Jeudy with the 15th overall pick of last year’s draft.
  • The Broncos traded for QB Teddy Bridgewater in April. He’ll compete with QB Drew Lock for the starting job.
  • Bridgewater sports a career 66.5% completion rate and 7.3 yards per attempt average -- much better than Lock’s 59.1% completion rate and 6.6 yards per attempt through 2 seasons.
  • Whether Lock takes a significant step forward in 2021 or Bridgewater beats him out, Jeudy should get better QB play this season than last.
  • Jeudy will face more target competition this year with the return of WR Courtland Sutton, who played just 31 snaps before tearing his ACL last year.
    • Sutton commanded 124 targets -- a 24.6% share -- back in 2019.
  • The Broncos also return WRs K.J. Hamler and Tim Patrick and TE Noah Fant.
  • OC Pat Shurmur returns for his 2nd season with the Broncos in 2021.
    • The 2020 Broncos ranked 19th in pass attempts and 20th in pass rate.
    • Shurmur has tended to be a pass-leaning play caller, with 9 of his previous 11 NFL offenses finishing top 16 in pass attempts.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jeudy had a frustrating rookie season, struggling with drops and poor QB play. His hands weren’t an issue at Alabama, so we’re not worried about that. And the QB play should be better in 2021 -- whether it’s Drew Lock improving or Teddy Bridgewater taking over.

Volume is a slight concern with Courtland Sutton returning and Noah Fant back. But Jeudy remains a super intriguing, young player capable of a breakout 2021 season.

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.
