Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) ‘probably’ won't be ready by training camp

Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post is reporting that TE Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) is progressing well, but may not be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Okwuegbunam suffered a torn ACL in Week 9 against the Falcons last season. He was productive before suffering an ACL tear. The 23-year-old TE hauled in 11 receptions on 15 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown across four games in 2020. Albert O “probably” won't be ready for the start of training camp, but is progressing well in his recovery. When healthy, Okwuegbunam is expected to serve as the Broncos backup TE behind breakout tight end Noah Fant.

Albert Okwuegbunam (torn ACL) out for the season

Albert Okwuegbunam suffered a torn ACL in Week 9 vs. the Falcons and will miss the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Tough blow for Albert O., who had been coming onto the scene of late for the Broncos. With Okwuegbunam now sidelined for the remainder of the season, expect Noah Fant to remain very busy as the feature tight end going forward.

Albert Okwuegbunam has one catch in Week 8, but makes it count

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam caught his only target for a 9-yard touchdown in Week 8's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Okwuegbunam saw 13 targets in Weeks 6 and 7 as Noah Fant worked his way back from an ankle injury, but was relegated to just one against the Chargers on Sunday. He did make his lone reception count, as it went for a 9-yard TD. Okwuegbunam was also the target of Drew Lock's pass that led to a pass interference call in the end zone, ultimately setting the stage for Denver's last-second victory. With Fant back in the lineup, he has no fantasy relevance at this time.

Albert Okwuegbunam leads Broncos with 7 catches, 60 yards in loss to KC

Albert Okwuegbunam caught 7-of-7 targets for 60 yards in a 43-16 loss to the Chiefs in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Albert “O“ as they call him was the Broncos’ leading pass-catcher in Week 7 with a game-high seven catches and 60 reception yards. This comes a week after he saw six targets in his first NFL game action. It seems like Okwuegbunam and QB Drew Lock are re-establishing their rapport that was built in college at Missouri. He makes for a low-end TE2 next week when the Broncos host the Chargers.

Albert Okwuegbunam catches two passes for 45 yards in NFL debut

Denver Broncos rookie TE Albert Okwuegbunam caught two passes for 45 yards in an 18-12 win over the Patriots on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Okwuegbunam had six targets on Sunday, which was second on the team behind WR Tim Patrick. He showed off the athleticism that made him a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft and could be in line for more playing time after having a decent outing in his professional debut. Noah Fant is still week-to-week with an ankle injury, so the opportunity is there in the short term for Okwuegbunam.
