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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
