WR - DEN - IR
Week 12 Outlook
The Broncos placed WR KJ Hamler (ACL) on injured reserve.
As expected. Hamler will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after tearing his ACL in Sunday's Week 3 game against the Jets. The second-year wideout should be close to full strength by the time the 2022 campaign rolls around. Courtland Sutton will continue to operate as Denver's No. 1 pass-catcher for now.
Broncos WR KJ Hamler will miss the remainder of the 2021 NFL season with a torn ACL.
Brutal. It's another significant injury suffered by a young Denver wideout. Hamler's absence will further increase opportunities for Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick. Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is still a few weeks away from returning.
Per the Denver Broncos, WR KJ Hamler has been ruled out the rest of the game against the Jets with a knee injury.
After injuring his knee in the first quarter, Hamler will not return for the rest of the game. There is no word on the severity of his knee injury. Expect Tim Patrick to receive more snaps and targets in his absence.
Broncos WR KJ Hamler caught one pass for 5 yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.
The game script dictated Hamler's usage on Sunday, as the Broncos had no reason to take deep shots. Hamler is a solid bench-stash for deeper leagues but is a real boom or bust from week to week.
Broncos WR KJ Hamler caught three passes for 41 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Unfortunately, Hamler dropped a 56-yard bomb in the end zone with no one within a country mile of him. Hamler will likely be a popular waiver-wire pickup with Jerry Jeudy dealing with a high ankle sprain, but he could end up being the definition of boom or bust on a weekly basis.
