Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: It's looking increasingly likely that Patrick, the Broncos' leading in receptions (23), yards (354) and receiving TDs (2), could miss his first game of the season. Check back, though, Friday to see if he can get on the field.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 29, wearing a helmet and pads.
Huddle Up: A definite positive step for Lindsay, who was held out of workouts Wednesday. The running back, who has been the team's most effective runner the last two games with 180 yards on 32 carries, still must clear the concussion protocol, but he appears to be trending in the right direction.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Jeudy is struggling to live up to his draft stock through six games and is a low-floor WR3 play in most matchups with just one touchdown on the season and only two catches in each of his last three games.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Lindsay will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so his status for Week 8 is uncertain. Melvin Gordon will receive most of the work if Lindsay is ruled out and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back this week.

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick (hamstring) is day to day due to a hamstring issue, according to head coach Vic Fangio Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Patrick has emerged as a high-upside FLEX play despite Denver's questionable quarterback play. He has plenty of time to get right and fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his practice status.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol as of Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Broncos RB Melvin Gordon will handle a bigger workload if Lindsay is to miss more time. RB Royce Freeman played 18 offensive snaps but isn't worth a roster spot in anything but very deep leagues.

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant had three receptions for 38 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Oct. 25.
Huddle Up: Back in action after missing Week 6 with an ankle injury, Fant tied for the team lead with seven targets on Sunday. Once you get past the top handful of tight ends all you're looking for is opportunity, and Fant is consistently targeted in Denver. That gives him decent TE1 potential each week.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy caught two passes for 20 yards in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: After catching 13 passes in his first three NFL games, Jeudy has caught just six in the last three. He still has upside with Courtland Sutton out for the year and Tim Patrick dealing with a hamstring issue, but the rookie is more long-term depth than anything else right now.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon had 17 carries, 68 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Oct. 25. Gordon, who caught two passes for 12 yards, also lost a pair of fumbles.
Huddle Up: Gordon's first fumble was of the traditional variety, but the second one came on a poor toss on an attempted flea flicker. Ball security was an issue for him with the Chargers, who Gordon will face for the first time as opponents this Sunday. Keep an eye on Phillip Lindsay's status as his availability is likely to affect Gordon's value significantly.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock completed 24 of 40 passes for 254 yards and two interceptions in a Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He also ran three times for eight yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Lock hasn't thrown a TD pass since Week 1 and has tossed four interceptions in two games since returning from a shoulder injury. Expect Denver to lean on the ground game and defense whenever possible in an effort to keep things simple for Lock. The second-year QB shouldn't be owned outside of the deepest of leagues.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hamler has missed a month because of the injury but should have a role in the passing game this week against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has a chance to be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Fant's practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status for Week 7. He is a big part of the passing game when healthy and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end if active.

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick caught four passes for 101 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Patrick posted his second straight 100-yard game and appears to be taking over as the team's No. 1 receiver. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver next week against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed for 26 yards on eight carries against the New England Patriots in Week 6. He also caught one pass for four yards.
Huddle Up: Freeman received a bigger role with Melvin Gordon out but was held in check. He should be avoided in all leagues against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon could receive a potential three-game suspension from the National Football League and jeopardize the $4.5 million full guarantee on his 2021 base salary as a result of being cited for driving under the influence Tuesday, Oct. 13. If he serves the suspension next year at his current salary, Gordon would lose nearly $800,000 in game checks. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: According to multiple sources, the Broncos do not plan to fine or suspend Gordon, who has apologized for his actions. He had been on track to play in Week 6's game versus the New England Patriots before being sidelined with strep throat. Phillip Lindsay will see the bulk of the carries in his absence and is worthy of consideration as a low-end RB2 or flex option in most formats. When healthy, Gordon should be viewed as a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
