WR - DEN
Week 3 Outlook
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network is reporting that the Broncos are waiving WR DaeSean Hamilton.
The Broncos reportedly had trade talks involving Hamilton. Denver was unable to finalize a deal and ultimately decided to waive him, saving $2.8 million in cap space. Hamilton was the odd man out in a loaded Broncos receiving group. The 26-year-old will most likely be claimed by another NFL team within the next few days. He caught 23-of-44 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games in 2020. Hamilton is 189th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings and is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues formats.
The Broncos have been receiving inquiries about DaeSean Hamilton, according to Mike Garafolo, and he will be moved "for the right price."
Hamilton is the fifth receiver for the Broncos - behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler, and Tim Patrick - and is on the last year of his deal, so a potential trade is best for both parties. Hamilton totaled the highest yards per reception last season, according to Garafolo, totaling 23 receptions on 44 targets (12.74 YPR) for 293 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He totaled a 27.2% slot rate, as well. A change of scenery may make the receiver fantasy-relevant next season.
DaeSean Hamilton caught 4-of-5 targets for 82 yards and a score in the Broncos' 31-30 comeback victory over the Chargers in Week 8.
Hamilton saw increased opportunity with Tim Patrick (hamstring) inactive for this one. The 25-year-old isn't a strong bet for fantasy production moving forward, though the Broncos do have a nice matchup against the Falcons in Week 9.
Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton caught 1 of 3 targets for nine yards in Denver's Thursday night win over the Jets.
Hamilton remains a side note in Denver's offense and should not be rostered at this time.
DaeSean Hamilton was not targeted in the Broncos' 28-10 loss to the Buccaneers Sunday.
Hamilton is buried on Denver's depth chart and does not merit fantasy consideration.
