Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in a 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Sutton caught his first touchdown pass of the year, but he had topped 70 receiving yards in his previous three games. He appears to be the No. 1 option for Russell Wilson and a high-end WR3 for fantasy owners.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy caught four of his five targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Through four games, Jeudy has two solid outings and two absolute duds. He and Russell Wilson could develop better chemistry as the year goes on, but Jeudy looks like a matchup-based flex play for now.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon rushed three times for eight yards and lost a fumble in a 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Gordon has had issues hanging on to the ball this year, and the fumble may have played into his lack of involvement against Las Vegas. That being said, the veteran could be in line for a big workload moving forward if Javonte Williams misses time with a knee injury.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) was on crutches after leaving the Week 4 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, and head coach Nathaniel Hackett said Williams will have an MRI on Monday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: If Williams is forced to miss playing time, Melvin Gordon would be the biggest beneficiary from a fantasy perspective. It's speculation, but he is likely to be sidelined for at least Week 5, because as luck has it, the Broncos face a quick turnaround with a Thursday game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (neck) practiced in full on Friday, Sept. 30, and carries no designation into Week 4.
Huddle Up: Gordon will continue to serve as one half of what is almost a 50-50 split in the Denver backfield, along with Javonte Williams. With Gordon averaging 14 touches per game and going up against a Las Vegas Raiders defense ceding the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs, Gordon is a touchdown-dependent flex play in Week 4.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (neck) was limited in practice on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: This is the second straight limited session for Gordon, so we'll have to see if he can get in a full session on Friday, although it's quite conceivable Gordon could play after three limited sessions. Despite the notion the Broncos would feature Javonte Williams more in 2022, Gordon has seen just three carries less and is averaging 14 touches per game. The veteran is on the radar as a touchdown-dependent flex play until further notice.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (neck) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Gordon has received at least 10 carries in all three games this season but has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last two games. He likely will continue to share playing time with Javonte Williams but may not be more than a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Jeudy had a 100-yard game with a score in his first game, but was limited to just one grab and three targets last week against Houston when he was nicked up. He is a risky fantasy play for the SNF game against a strong Niners D.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hip,knee) is officially active for the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Hamler has been targeted only once so far this season but is still a deep threat in the passing game. Fantasy players probably have better options available and can keep Hamler on the bench.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (knee, hip) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source. He will participate in pregame warmups just to be sure.
Huddle Up: Jeudy was listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in just one of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He makes a risky fantasy play this week since the Broncos won't play until Sunday night, so owners who are thinking of rolling the dice with Jeudy should have a backup plan in place if he is deactivated.

Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams leads all running backs with 16 targets through two games.
Huddle Up: Williams has 22 rushes for 118 yards and 12 catches for 75 yards through two games. He's 13th in PPR fantasy points. Melvin Gordon has 22 rushes for 105 yards and three grabs for 20 yards, placing him 40th in PPR points. Williams should only be involved more as we progress.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (knee/hip) practiced in full on Friday, Sept. 23, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Hamler's questionable tag is curious since he got in a full session on Friday, but for now it looks like he'll go. It has been a quiet start to the season for Hamler but he could see more run if Jerry Jeudy (questionable) is ruled out.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (knee/hip) turned in a limited practice on Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: After not practicing on Wednesday and Thursday, Jeudy was able to get in a limited session to close out the week. Reports on the ground are that Jeudy looked good in practice but fantasy managers will be rolling the dice if they go with him, as the Broncos don't play until Sunday night. KJ Hamler is a possible contingency plan but he's nothing more than a dart-throw flex play.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (knee/hip) was limited at practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: After not practicing at all last week with the same injury issues, back-to-back limited practices to start this week means Hamler is trending in the right direction. If he's good to go, Hamler won't have any fantasy relevance unless Jerry Jeudy (rib/shoulder) doesn't play, which is very possible after he hasn't practiced at all this week. Hamler would be a dart-throw flex play if Jeudy sits.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (rib/shoulder) was not at practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Jeudy has one more day to get in a practice or else he'll likely be ruled out for Week 3. If he can't go, KJ Hamler (knee/hip) will be worth a look as a dart-throw flex play, but he's also on the injury report, so make sure Hamler is active before inserting into lineups.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: While a limited practice on Friday would give him a shot of playing Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers, it seems more likely than not that will happen. KJ Hamler (knee, hip) is also hurt but is getting in limited practices so far this week. If both Jeudy and Hamler are not able to go in Week 3, Kendall Hinton could start opposite Courtland Sutton. If that happens, Sutton could be a target hog again after drawing a look on 11 of Russell Wilson's 31 throws in Week 2.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) is not practicing on Wednesday, Sept. 21, head coach Nathaniel Hackett said.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: While Jeudy's injury isn't thought to be serious, his status for Week 3 remains up in the air. If Jeudy can't go, expect to see plenty of Courtland Sutton, and KJ Hamler should see an expanded role if healthy.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (chest, sternum) is considered day-to-day after exiting the first quarter with a chest or sternum injury in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: This news comes as a small relief to fantasy managers after the receiver missed seven games due to injury in 2021. Unfortunately, managers have become all too familiar with inconsistency from Jeudy. It remains to be seen if having Russell Wilson can change that, but the third-year receiver needs to be considered a WR3 option at best for now.

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught seven of his 11 targets for 122 yards in a 16-9 win over the Houston Texans in Week 2.

Huddle Up: With Jerry Jeudy leaving with an injury, Sutton was targeted early and often. If Jeudy misses time, Sutton could deliver WR2 numbers.

Huddle Up: Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton may see a few additional targets with Hamler ruled out and both can be starting options in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hip, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Huddle Up: Hamler has missed the first two practices and could be a game-time decision for the Week 2 game. He was only targeted once in the first game and can be avoided even if he plays this week.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (knee/hip) is listed as questionable for Week 1, head coach Nathaniel Hackett said on Saturday, Sept. 10.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Hamler will suit up, but he's best left on your bench in Week 1 anyway until we see what his role is. Hamler will have serious competition for targets, with Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Albert Okwuegbunam all in the mix. Consider Hamler a WR4 with upside for now.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hip, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

Huddle Up: Hamler was able to play in the final preseason game and appears to be on track for the Week 1 game. He will see a handful of targets if active but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson agreed to a five-year, $245 million extension Thursday, Sept. 1, that includes $165 million guaranteed. He's now under contract for seven years and $296 million.

Huddle Up: Wilson figures to receive a boost with the talent in the backfield around him, and he could return to his midrange QB1 status in fantasy.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler recorded three catches for 18 yards in the preseason Week 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, Aug. 27.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: This was Hamler's first game action since suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament last season. The third-year pro is officially on track to play in the opener, but it'll be hard to trust him in lineups early on with Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy ahead of him in the pecking order. Hamler should be rostered in dynasty formats but is a boom-or-bust WR4 for now.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (knee) may receive some snaps in the final preseason game if he is cleared to play, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett.

Huddle Up: Hamler has not played since early in the 2021 season, so a few series could be helpful for him to prepare for the regular season. He could see a handful of targets each game and could be a late round option in drafts.
