Fantasy Impact:

In 2020, a rookie Ojemudia started all 16 games for the Denver Broncos, playing over 78% of the team's snaps. But in 2021, Ojemudia played just 85 snaps, appearing in two games before a hamstring injury put him on injured reserve. Heading into 2022, the Broncos have second-year corner Patrick Surtain starting on the outside, but they lost CB Kyle Fuller, who played the second most snaps at the position for the team at 66%. There's a path for Ojemudia, who had six pass deflections and four forced fumbles in his rookie season, to find his path back on the field in his third season alongside Surtain and CB Ronald Darby. The Broncos' defense has an average draft position of DST9, according to FantasyPros, and this will only strengthen the team's depth.
