As training camp kicks off for the Denver Broncos, the quest to find the Broncos’ top fantastic players continues to intensify.
In our previous episode, we had the opportunity to assess the fantastic values of Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater ahead of the 2021 NFL season.
Head coach Vic Fangio has announced that Lock will be taking the first team shots to start training camp. Not only is this a huge confidence booster for Lock, but it also builds the confidence of many fantasy owners. If Lock can prove he’s QB1 coming out of camp, the rest of the squad should see a significant increase in fantastic value.
On the other side, former Panthers starter Teddy Bridgewater takes the second team representatives to camp. Many insiders initially thought it would be Bridgewater who would run the quarterback before entering the camp, but Fangio decided otherwise.
Bridgewater’s experience as a successful NFL starter has given younger guys like Jerry Jeudy some serious chemistry training. Now that Jeudy will be taking snapshots with Lock, it will be interesting to see if the fantasy owners pass Jeudy on to subsequent turns.
Today’s topic in the Denver Broncos’ fantasy world is arguably the most important position of this team: wide receivers.
This season may be one of the season for the Denver Broncos wide receiver body. With the return of Courtland Sutton, the Denver Broncos have all of their receivers healthy and ready to roll for training camp.
More importantly, Sutton’s return also gives fantasy owners a glimpse of how the Broncos will line up their receivers for the first week of the 2021 season.
The Broncos currently have Sutton listed as the team’s best receiver at WR1, meanwhile Jerry Jeudy is returning to his original position on the depth board. Jeudy played the majority of snaps last season as the main receiver in Sutton’s absence. KJ Hamler completes the starting core as the team’s tertiary gap enters training camp.
Let’s not overlook the always surprising receiver, Tim Patrick. Patrick may be listed as the team’s fourth wide receiver to go to camp, but he could provide the deep boost the Broncos have been looking for all last season. His speed and ability to create open space should be something fantasy owners consider doing on draft night.
Moving from the first to the fourth, we’re going to take a look at what each Denver Broncos receiver brings to the fantasy table ahead of 2021.
