Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick

Jerry Jeudy, had his coming out party v the New York Jets on a national stage. His 48 yard touchdown energized a down trodden fan base. But, if you look at underlying numbers he had fairly limited usage. He had just four targets and caught two of them. The disparity in the huge catch and the rest of his season where his previous long was 25 is worth noting. He is a boom or bust, low end flex option.

Patrick had a similar game, netting a huge 40 yard TD vs the Jets. He did have slightly more targets with seven, while pulling in six of them. Depending on who is quarterback and the run heaviness of the offense, I’d stay away from both unless necessary.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Patrick for his increased usage. Sit Jeudy for boom or bust reasons as he has to show more consistency.
