Albert Okwuegbunam inactive for Week 1

Denver Broncos rookie tight end Albert Okwueggunam is inactive for Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Expected to step into a large role with Courtland Sutton ruled out with a sprained AC joint. The talented rookie tight end will join Sutton and KJ Hamler on the sidelines. There has been no indication if Albert O aggravated the hip injury he was dealing with last week, or if he is healthy inactive with Jake Butt taking his place on the active roster. Noah Fant gets another bump with this news.

Albert Okwuegbunam (hip) returns to practice

Broncos rookie TE Albert Okwuegbunam (hip) has been cleared to practice.

Fantasy Impact

"Albert O" has been out of action the past few days with a hip issue. Denver's fourth-round pick from this past April, Okwuegbunam isn't a lock to see much action this season.

Albert Okwuegbunam signs rookie deal with Broncos

Fourth-round pick out of Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam has signed his four-year, $4M contract with the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Okwuegbunam will also receive a $749,040 signing bonus that is included in his deal. “Albert O” as they call him was one of Drew Lock’s favorite and most reliable targets at Missouri when they played together in 2017 and 2018. Okwuegbunam caught a whopping 17 TDs from Lock those two seasons. It’ll be interesting to see if the chemistry is still there between Lock and his newest weapon, but don’t forget the Broncos still have young up-and-comer Noah Fant at the position. He himself is on the verge of a breakout season, so Okwuegbunam may have to wait his turn to produce at a high level. We may however see some instances in the red zone where Albert O is used for his 6-foot-5 frame.

Albert Okwuegbunam selected No. 118 by Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos have selected tight end Albert Okwuegbunam with the No. 118 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Broncos clearly had a vision in this year’s Draft, and that was to surround QB Drew Lock with as much offensive firepower as possible to ensure his success and ability to grow as a potential franchise quarterback. The TE out of Missouri joins WRs Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler as selections made by GM John Elway thus far. At 6’5” and 258 pounds, Okwuegbunam ran a 4.49 40. He’s a physical specimen who can really stretch a defense down the seam. He’ll team up with TE Noah Fant in Denver to create a very solid 1-2 punch for Lock at the position. Fant remains a borderline TE1 even with the addition of Albert O.
