TE - FA
Former third-round pick TE Jeff Heuerman has been released by the Denver Broncos
The Broncos drafted Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam in the 2020 NFL Draft to work alongside Noah Fant, so the days seemed numbered for the five-year Broncos veteran. The 27-year old will now look for work elsewhere in the NFL.
Jeff Heuerman had three receptions for 15 yards on five targets in the Broncos' 23-20 win over the Chargers Sunday.
Heuerman saw two more targets than Noah Fant Sunday but only managed 15 yards. He is best avoided for the fantasy playoffs.
Jeff Heuerman had one reception for 26 yards on three targets in the Broncos' 20-17 win over the Chargers Sunday.
Heuerman is the second TE in a low-volume passing offense and is best left off of fantasy teams.
Jeff Heuerman brought in both of his targets for 20 yards in the Broncos' 27-16 loss to the Packers Sunday.
Heuerman is best avoided in fantasy as the TE2 in Denver.
Broncos tight end Jeff Heuerman (shoulder) was not listed on the team's Thursday injury report ahead of their Monday night matchup against the Raiders. He had been limited earlier in the week with a shoulder injury.
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.
