Game status: Jerry Jeudy is ACTIVE for Week 12.

Jerry Jeudy is listed as questionable on this week’s official injury report. The Denver Broncos wide receiver is dealing with an Achilles problem, but he was able to play through the same issue last week against the Dolphins. That’s a good sign that he’ll play this week against the Saints.

Fantasy impact: Jerry Jeudy (Ankle, achilles)

Jeudy was able to get in a limited practice on Wednesday before missing Thursday’s session. And while the team did not practice on Friday, they estimated the receiver with a limited designation.

The same injury was bothering the rookie last week. He still managed to get out on the field in that one, but only finished with a disappointing 37 yards on three catches. He was targeted eight times in that one. However, it’s hard to say if that stat line was the result of his injury, Miami’s defense, or Denver’s woeful passing attack. His value takes a big dip this week with Drew Lock and the rest of the quarterbacks out due to Covid-19. He’s worth a look in deeper leagues, but likely should be avoided.
