Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is likely out closer to six weeks with a high ankle sprain.
Huddle Up: KJ Hamler (3 catches, 41 yards) and Tim Patrick (4-39-1) figure to benefit most from Jeudy's absence. They each had four targets last week, and they could both be worthy of flex plays if they continue to produce that way with even more looks coming.

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is expected to miss four to six weeks because of his high ankle sprain, according to sources. Jeudy is not a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list at this point.
Huddle Up: The Broncos likely will look to KJ Hamler and Tim Patrick to fill in for Jeudy over the next few weeks. They can both be short-term options for fantasy players and could be flex option in some leagues if they have favorable matchups.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 1 versus the New York Giants and will be out a few weeks, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: This was the expected outcome and tosses some cold water on what many expected to be a breakout season for the second-year receiver. Especially considering how violent Jeudy's cuts are on his routes, it would be wise for fantasy managers to assume he may not return to form this season even if he returns to the field in mid-to-late October. In his absence, Courtland Sutton should step up as the team's go-to receiver. Tim Patrick also should find his way back on the fantasy radar, and K.J. Hamler may be able to do the same.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) had X-rays on his ankle and they were negative Sunday, Sept. 12. According to reports, he suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 1 game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: The good news is he didn't suffer a fracture, but he likely will need to miss some time. That's good news for the short-term fantasy outlooks of KJ Hamler and Courtland Sutton. Noah Fant also could see an uptick in action, too.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) left the Week 1 game against the New York Giants due to an apparent ankle injury, and he was carted off the field.
Huddle Up: It certainly didn't look good on the replay, as he was going down after a reception and a defender inadvertently fell awkwardly onto his lower leg. KJ Hamler and Courtland Sutton will be forced to fill some of the void if Jeudy is sidelined.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was selected as Athletic beat writer Nick Kosmider's team breakout candidate, saying that the second-year wide receiver has looked 'sharp' during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Jeudy had a slightly disappointing rookie season, finishing second on the team and 46th among all wide receivers with 155.6 PPR points. Even with fellow Broncos WR Courtland Sutton returning from injury, Jeudy should be in the running for a WR3 finish this season.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy is the 'main guy sticking out' among the receivers during minicamp, according to Taylor Brooks of KDVR.com.
Huddle Up: Jeudy had an inconsistent rookie campaign, but he ended on a high note, catching 11 passes on 22 targets for 201 yards in the final two games. If the Broncos are able to find stable quarterback play, Jeudy could push for WR3 production.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (illness) left practice early Tuesday, June 15, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: Jeudy should be fine for training camp and will be a top-three receiver for the Broncos in 2021. He should see plenty of targets in the passing game and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos Wr Jerry Jeudy on Thursday, Feb. 4, said he's aiming to improve this offseason. 'At the end of the day. I can't control the QB,' Jeudy said. 'I can only focus on me and what I need to do to get better, making easier for the QB to make the throw. I don't put it on the QB.' .
Huddle Up: As a rookie, Jeudy led the team with 856 receiving yards on 52 catches but only caught 46 percent of his targets and had just three TD grabs. More consistent QB play would certainly boost Jeudy's numbers, but fewer drops and more consistency on his end would go a long way as well. He's a low-end WR3 for now.

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was targeted on a catchable pass on just 59 percent of throws by his quarterbacks in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Jeudy, the 15th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, finished with 52 receptions for 856 yards and three touchdowns on his 113 targets while playing all 16 games. He was clearly used as the No. 1 receiver but didn't receive the necessary help from QB Drew Lock. The Broncos are said to be evaluating the QB position heading into the offseason. Jeudy will have less fantasy value than he had last draft season unless an upgrade is made.
