Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam is expected to play more of a 'move tight end' and 'hybrid receiver/tight end role' on offense in 2022, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett, who added he is 'excited to get the ball in (Okwuegbunam's) hands.'
Huddle Up: This is not an unexpected comment from Hackett as Okwuegbunam was the big reason why Denver was probably willing to part with Noah Fant in the Russell Wilson trade. How Albert O. slots into the passing game after Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy is another story, but it seems realistic to project an average of five to seven targets for him. If Okwuegbunam is on the high end of that and Wilson continues to rely heavily on his tight ends in the red zone, then Albert O. could easily end up being a very good fantasy TE1 option.

Denver Broncos WR Albert Okwuegbunam posted three catches for a team-high 58 yards in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Okwuegbunam did a decent job in this one, but he isn't someone to worry about for fantasy purposes outside of deeper leagues. The Broncos travel to meet the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 16.

Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam on Saturday, Oct. 30, is being activated off the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Albert O, who had nine receptions for 57 yards and a TD in his first four games, is not a viable fantasy starting option outside of deep tight end-premium leagues but he likely will siphon some looks away from No. 1 TE Noah Fant.

Drenver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) on Saturday, Oct. 9, will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Just in case you were using him a deeper or tight end-premium league, Okwuegbunam will now miss at least three games after being injured in practice this week. In the meantime, this could mean more looks for TE Noah Fant, who is second on the team in targets with 27.

Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) sustained a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday, Oct. 6, and isn't practicing Thursday. He also is in danger of missing the team's Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Definitely take note if you've been using Albert O in a super-deep or tight end-premium league.

Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam is 'definitely ready' to be the starter if TE Noah Fant (leg) is unavailable against the New York Giants in Week 1, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
