Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Jeudy is in line for a bigger role in the passing game with Courtland Sutton out for the season. He will see plenty of targets this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) has been declared inactive for the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Lindsay is making progress but is still at least a week away from returning. Melvin Gordon will continue to receive most of the work at running back and can be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Lock is expected to miss at least two weeks because of the injury, so Jeff Driskel will take over as the starting quarterback. Driskel should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues this week.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Jeudy appears to have a good chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He is in line for a bigger role in the passing game with Courtland Sutton out for the season and can be a No. 3 receiver if he plays this week.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is listed as doubtful for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Lindsay is making progress but likely will miss at least one more game because of the injury. Melvin Gordon will continue to receive most of the work at running back and can be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) has been getting healthier each day, but he is still expected to be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: The Broncos' passing game is a mess right now with Courtland Sutton (knee) already done for the year and Drew Lock (shoulder) expected to miss multiple games, so an absence from Jeudy is far from ideal. Assuming the rookie is forced to sit, Denver's top three receivers would be Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler and DaeSean Hamilton. Patrick and Hamler would be the best of the bunch to roll with in fantasy if owners have no other alternative, but this is a passing attack to avoid outside of Noah Fant at the moment.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) is participating in practice Friday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: This has been Lindsay's first on-field work since getting injured in Week 1, but he's still likely to miss a second straight game with the hope of having him available on a short week next week with the Broncos playing Thursday against the New York Jets. In the meantime, it will be the Melvin Gordon show again Sunday in Week 3.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ribs) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Jeudy's fantasy stock takes a hit this week with QB Drew Lock expected to be out of the lineup. He should remain stashed on the bench.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Lindsay can still be stashed on the bench in deeper leagues. Melvin Gordon will continue playing a larger role for as long as Lindsay is sidelined and will be a mid-tier RB2.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Lock is still expected to miss multiple games, but he can be stashed on the bench in two-QB leagues. Jeff Driskel is a deep streaming option for desperate fantasy managers.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) will not be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because there is a chance that Lock has a quicker recovery than expected.
Huddle Up: Lock's timetable is believed to be two to six weeks, so he could be ready for the Week 5 game. Jeff Driskel will be the starting quarterback while Lock is out and could be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) is expected to miss two to six weeks with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.
Huddle Up: The Broncos will turn to Jeff Driskel in his absence. Driskel fared well in relief in Week 2 and is a capable replacement for Lock in superflex leagues, but he will not be an advisable starter in one-quarterback formats. That will particularly be the case in Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Updating an earlier report, Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: The rebuild is about to kick another gear, and DaeSean Hamilton figures to see starter time. He should be scooped up as depth in most leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy hauled in four of his seven targets for 62 yards in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Jeudy missed some time in the first half after taking a shot to the ribs on an over-the-middle catch, but he was able to return. As long as Courtland Sutton continues to struggle with injuries in the early going, the rookie is going to see a steady amount of targets. It's unclear if Jeudy will benefit or suffer if Jeff Driskel is forced to start for the next few weeks, so the No. 15 overall pick in this spring's draft should be considered a low-end WR3 in Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant caught four of his five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fant also added a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: In case anyone believed Fant's 81-yard, one-score effort in Week 1 was a fluke, it wasn't. The second-year tight end scored from 20 yards out late in the third quarter and also had a 22-yard grab against arguably the best defense in the league. He'll have his hands full again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he's quickly emerging as a player that needs to be in fantasy lineups just about every week.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon ran for 70 yards on 19 carries and added two catches on three targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Gordon was featured with Philip Lindsay (toe) sidelined and found much more success early on than Saquon Barkley did against this same defense in Week 1. The Broncos figure to continue riding Gordon hard for however long Lindsay needs to recover, but his path to fantasy success is unlikely to get much easier in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Consider Gordon a low-end RB2 at best in that matchup.

Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel came on in relief of an injured Drew Lock (shoulder) and finished 18-of-34 for 256 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Week 2 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Driskel has turned himself into a capable backup NFL quarterback and flashed at times when called upon, and it's no small feat to do what he did in this game against such a quality defense. Given that Lock was seen in a sling after his exit, it's likely Driskel will need to start multiple games for the Broncos. He should be a decent superflex option for however long he is needed, but he shouldn't be starting in most fantasy leagues in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (leg, knee) left the Week 2 game early because of a knee injury and leg cramping and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Huddle Up: Sutton was dealing with an injury prior to the injury, so fantasy players will need to check on his status after the game. He is a starting option when healthy, but his status for Week 3 is uncertain.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (rib) suffered a rib injury during the Week 2 game but is considered probable to return.
Huddle Up: Jeudy has played well in his first game and a half and should have a bigger role in the passing game as the season goes on. He can be a No. 3 or flex option in leagues when healthy.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) will not return to the team's Week 2 game because of his shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: Jeff Driskel will finish the game as the starting quarterback and likely will keep the job if Lock misses more time. Driskel would only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Hamler will be making his NFL debut this week, but his role in the passing game is uncertain. He could be a flex option in some leagues, but fantasy players could also wait to see him play in a game before considering him for their lineups.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has been ruled out for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon will receive most of the work at running back with Lindsay unable to play. He will be facing one of the top defenses in the NFL this week but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.
