Gameday update: Jeudy is expected to play through the shoulder injury he suffered last week, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. He should continue to be one of Drew Lock’s top targets while Patrick and Hamler provide support.
The Denver Broncos have a few options for fantasy owners to choose from at the wide receiver position. For those who have Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick or K.J. Hamler on the roster, here’s a breakdown of the trio of wideouts.
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, K.J. Hamler
Denver’s wide receivers had a productive day in their last time out, though it could’ve been much better with Jeudy catching seven of 14 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown. Hamler had a nice day with six catches on 10 targets for 75 yards, and Patrick added a touchdown catching four of nine targets for 29 yards.
Jeudy had been hitting his stride as a rookie, but he is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury. He was limited in Thursday’s practice, but head coach Vic Fangio said he expects Jeudy to play on Sunday.
The Bronco wide receivers will take on the Las Vegas Raiders on the road. Las Vegas allowed 326 passing yards to Justin Herbert and the Las Angeles Chargers, led by Keenan Allen, who caught nine of 11 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Assuming Jeudy can play this weekend, he can be used as a wide receiver No. 3 with upside, and he is probably going to be the only Denver wideout worth starting.
