WR - DEN
We didn't get the landing spot we'd hoped for with Jeudy, as he'll fight for targets with Courtland Sutton. That doesn't mean he can't be productive in fantasy, but rather that we need to dial back expectations. The Broncos are not going to be a high-volume passing offense, which limits the potential to Jeudy and the entire offense. He's best viewed as a WR4 right now who can potentially sneak into the WR2/3 conversation, though you shouldn't bank on it.
Jeudy is a phenomenal WR prospect, but he didn't exactly land in the best offense for immediate fantasy football production. Jeudy should be a fringe WR4/WR5 this upcoming season, but could see increased work if Courtland Sutton were to miss time for some reason.
Down a bit. Rookies are all going to be a little behind with this being a strange year for preseason football activities.
Jerry Jeudy was my favourite prospect entering the draft and he enters a backfield with a slot-shaped hole ready for him to fill it. The problem is the overall power of this offence, I just don't expect them to be very good. Even if things go well, the running backs will get a heap of touches, as will Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant, making it hard for Jeudy and his fellow rookies KJ Hamler and Albert O to make a big impact. I like Jeudy in PPR but he's unlikely to be much more than a flex option in his rookie season.
The offense can grow with Lock at the helm but none of the QBs paced above the bottom third in the league for ATT. Hard to project a huge step for Lock, while also expecting Jeudy to immediately come in and be productive in a low volume passing game. Sanders barely paced as a flex option while he was around last year. If they show they'd like to pass more in 2020 I'll come back to it. Bringing in Gordon doesn't scream that to me though.
Let me be clear. Sutton is a beast which only makes things laughable for Jerry Jeudy. Single coverage? Bwahahahahaha. Now just because I have him here, his market value isn't this high, however I highly encourage you to target and trade for him using available adp data and get something else in return. Speed, tempo and quickness will give DBs nightmares. There's not enough words to describe what he brings to the NFL. Tremendous after the catch and creative in the open field.
Should be a No. 2 WR in promising Denver passing game early on and could be a PPR star by Year Three
Broncos QB Drew Lock is going to drop back to pass and see Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant, K.J. Hamler and Jerry Jeudy running routes, and if he decides to hand it off he has Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsey. Lock will have a lot of pressure to perform in 2020. If you draft Jeudy, you hope he does just that.
