Heuerman finished last season on injured reserve with broken ribs, so missing Week 1 would not have been a good start as he looks to carve out a role in a new Denver offense. Rookie first-round tight end Noah Fant is ahead of Heuerman on the depth chart, so it will likely take a combination of the former struggling and the latter playing well before Heuerman is relevant in most fantasy formats.
