Denver Broncos TEs Jeff Heuerman and Noah Fant will compete for the starting tight end job during training camp, but Heuerman will enter camp as the clear favorite for the job, in the opinion of 9News.com's Mike Klis.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see who will start at tight end. Fant likely has more fantasy value at this point and probably can be stashed on a bench until he starts. Heuerman could be a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman agreed on a two-year deal Friday, March 15, to remain with the team. The deal is worth a maximum of $9 million and includes $2 million in guarantees for 2019.
Huddle Up: Heuerman caught 31-of-48 targets for 281 yards and two TDs last season -- all career highs -- but his campaign ended after 11 games due to broken ribs and bruised lung. If Heuerman can stay healthy (he's played in 37 out of a possible 48 games during three seasons in Denver), he could be a high-end TE2 sleeper given new quarterback Joe Flacco's past success connecting with tight ends.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (ribs, lung) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: The Broncos' tight end room is in shambles. If you're desperate then the best bet to take over the starting position is Matt LaCosse, who caught three passes for 34 yards and found the end zone last week.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (ribs, lung) sustained broken ribs and a bruised lung in Week 12 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers and will miss the remainder of the season.
Huddle Up: Heuerman had started to come on in recent weeks as a streaming option in fantasy, but this injury obviously puts an end to that. The Ohio State product has struggled to stay healthy since entering the league in 2015 and is not a must-hold in dynasty leagues. Matt LaCosse will most likely take over his role in the offense and can be considered a low-end streamer.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman caught 10 of his 11 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Heuerman entered the game with just 15 catches, so it remains to be seen if he is going to play a larger role going forward. Unless you are desperate for tight end help, you can take a wait-and-see approach with him.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman posted four receptions for 57 yards on seven targets in the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Heuerman did a good job getting free late on a 36-yard reception. The Broncos need someone to step up for the injured Jake Butt, and the former Ohio State standout did a good job in this one. Still, he is nothing more than a low-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against the Jets.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman is considered to be the 'likely starter' at tight end in 2018, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com. 'I've been fortunate to learn from some older tight ends the last couple of years and I'm ready,' Heuerman said. 'I'm ready to take on that leadership role, that No. 1 role and go from there.'
Huddle Up: With Case Keenum now the starting quarterback in town, tight end could be a position of considerable value after Kyle Rudolph tied for the team-lead last season with eight touchdowns for the Vikings. However, Heuerman doesn't appear to have much potential and can probably be nabbed off the waiver wire after drafts, if desired. Jake Butt probably has the higher ceiling, too.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman is entering his third season with the Broncos, although he sat out 2015 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. General manager John Elway believes 2017 is the year Heuerman needs to break out. 'This would be the year,' Elway said, 'We're waiting for Jeff to make the big step.'
Huddle Up: The Broncos are pretty thin at tight end, but it's hard to be excited about Heuerman given his injury history and lack of production. He can be avoided unless Virgil Green or A.J. Derby is injured.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman - a third-round pick in 2015 - is not assured a roster spot, according to general manager John Elway.
Huddle Up: Heuerman flashed a bit toward the end of last season, but the tight end room is getting crowded in Denver. The Broncos like A.J. Derby, drafted Jake Butt in the fifth round and also have Virgil Green in the stable. Heuerman's best bet to secure a roster spot might be to have Butt spend his rookie season on the Reserve/Injured list to fully hear his torn ACL. Either way, he is a long way from fantasy relevance.

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (hamstring) has been limited in organized team activities with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: There's been a bit of buzz about Heuerman as the heir to Owen Daniels in Denver's version of the Gary Kubiak offense, but if he can't get on the field it will be tough for him to carve out that niche.
