New York Giants WR Cody Latimer announced on his official Instagram account on Sunday, March 17 that he is returning to the team on a one-year deal. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Latimer posted 11 grabs for 190 yards and a touchdwon last season before missing 10 games due to a hamstring injury. With Odell Beckham Jr. moving on to Cleveland, there is a chance Latimer could see a larger role depending upon the other draft picks and personnel moves the team chooses to make. Still, he has had chances to make a splash before and hasn't really answered the bell.

New York Giants WR Cody Latimer ended up with four grabs for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys on six targets.
Huddle Up: Latimer entered the game with just seven receptions and 118 yards, so don't get too excited about this. We've seen Latimer have big games and work his way up the depth chart before, but he never can see to get over the hump.

New York Giants WR Roger Lewis could emerge as the No. 3 receiver this year ahead of WR Cody Latimer, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Even if Lewis wins the job, he figures to be fifth in the pecking order for targets. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues for now.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer (thigh) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Latimer has come on in recent weeks and actually just churned out his best performance of the season in last Thursday night's game against the Colts, but he's someone better served for deeper leagues. However, desperate owners could do worse than Latimer as a WR4, especially if Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) doesn't suit up this weekend.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer admitted to be "very hesitant" and "worried what everybody (such as retired QB Peyton Manning and head coach Gary Kubiak) thought" over his first two seasons. Latimer dropped weight in the offseason and is crediting his conditioning as one of the main reasons why he has stood out in training camp this summer. "Cody is in great condition. He can run all day, so you see him show up. The longer practices go, he tends to keep making plays. It's important to him. You can see it. It's a big year for him. We all know that. I think he's pushing really hard and doing a good job," Kubiak said.
Huddle Up: Latimer built on his solid camp with a seven-catch effort in the Broncos' preseason opener and now has to be considered the favorite for the No. 3 role behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders after Bennie Fowler suffered a small fracture in his elbow in the same game. Ability has never been a question for the 2014 second-round pick, so more solid preseason performances could lead to a potential fantasy-viable role down the road, although he's not quite there yet.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer had seven catches on eight targets for a game-high 82 yards in a 22-0 win over the Chicago Bears in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Latimer flashed quite often in training camp and could be on to something for the long haul. Unfortunately, Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas will gobble up the bulk of targets. Avoid the young receiver on draft day.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer has had a good training camp, and head coach Gary Kubiak praised him Wednesday, Aug. 3. 'It's been a good camp. Cody is in great condition. He can run all day, so you can see him show up. The longer practices go, he tends to keep making plays. It's important to him. You can see it. It's a big year for him. We all know that. I think he's pushing really hard and going a good job.'
Huddle Up: Latimer is not only behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, but also Bennie Fowler and Jordan Norwood. He is simply trying to keep a spot on the 53-man roster and isn't worth a spot in most fantasy leagues, unless one or two receivers ahead of him go down to injury.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer was arrested Monday, May 30 for failing to pay a one-year old traffic ticket. The wide receiver shelled out $311.50 to resolve the situation. Latimer originally called police as the alleged victim of a domestic dispute.
Huddle Up: Probably not enough here to warrant league action, but anytime a player gets arrested you can expect league officials to take a closer look.

Denver Broncos WRs Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler are expected to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp. Latimer has performed well during offseason workouts during the last few seasons but has not recorded great numbers during the regular season. Fowler had a decent role in the passing game in 2015 but injuries and inconsistency dropped him on the depth chart.
Huddle Up: This would be huge fantasy news two or three seasons ago, but with Mark Sanchez or Paxton Lynch expected to guide a run-first offense, it's far off the fantasy map for all but the huge or dynasty leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer (groin) left the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Latimer has been an afterthought in the Denver offense this season, so his absence was barely noticed fantasy-wise.
