View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Hamler’s 2021 season ended when he tore his left ACL and dislocated his left hip in Week 3.
  • He needed surgery on both the knee and hip but was able to resume running and run routes with new QB Russell Wilson in March.
  • Prior to going down, Hamler caught 5 of 10 targets for 74 scoreless yards in about 2.5 games worth of action.
  • As a rookie in 2020, Hamler posted a 30-381-3 line on 56 targets across 13 games. He ranked 92nd among WRs in PPR points per game.
  • Hamler missed 3 games as a rookie with a hamstring injury and concussion. He also tore an ACL as a high school senior in 2016, sustained a concussion at Penn State in 2018 and was unable to work out at the 2020 Combine due to a hamstring injury.
  • Hamler checked in at just 5’9 and 178 pounds at the Combine.
  • He played 92% of his snaps from the slot at Penn State and has played 62% of his snaps in the slot for the Broncos.
  • When healthy, Hamler figures to slot in as Denver’s #4 WR behind Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, who’s coming off a nice 2021 and got a 3-year, $34 million extension in November.
  • Wilson will be a big QB upgrade in 2022. He struggled after suffering a right finger injury last October. But Wilson was excellent before that and had shown no signs of decline the previous few seasons.
  • Patrick will play under a new coaching staff this offseason after the Broncos named Nathaniel Hackett their HC.
    • It’s Hackett’s first crack at a HC gig. He has 8 years of NFL OC experience: 2013-2014 with the Bills, 2016-2018 with the Jaguars and 2019-2021 with the Packers.
    • Hackett’s Bills and Jaguars offenses – piloted by E.J. Manuel, Kyle Orton and Blake Bortles – were run leaning. But Hackett went pass heavier when he hooked up with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers ranked 7th, 9th and 11th in situation-neutral pass rate the last 3 seasons.
  • With Wilson and Hackett in town, we’re projecting the Broncos to pass at a tangibly higher clip than they did last season.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Hamler’s first order of business is recovering from last September’s torn ACL and dislocated hip. After that, he still has plenty to prove after 16 mostly underwhelming games to open his NFL career.

Hamler gets a big QB upgrade this season with the arrival of Russell Wilson. But he’ll likely be 4th on Denver’s depth chart behind Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick. Hamler would need an injury to at least 1 of those guys to have a shot at reliable fantasy value.

Hamler questionable for Week 3

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should be good to go. Hamler’s Week 3 fantasy projection depends heavily on WR Jerry Jeudy’s status.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (rib, shoulder) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday night, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow. WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. After playing 40 snaps in the opener, Hamler missed practice all last week and was inactive for the Texans game. It looks like he has a shot to return for Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers -- and is certainly needed with WR Jerry Jeudy banged up.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. It looks like he suffered a setback after playing 40 snaps in the opener. Hamler’s absence this weekend frees up a few targets for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Albert Okwuegbunam.
