Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Javonte Williams Note

The rookie RB found the end zone for the first time since Week 3, though the touch split with Melvin Gordon remained the same as it has all season. Denver's backfield dynamics don't appear to be changing absent an injury, but Williams' talent remains worth betting on. He totaled 111 yards from scrimmage against the Chargers on Sunday, including 57 as a pass catcher. Williams is among the league leaders in advanced metrics such as PFF's elusive rating, Next Gen Stats' success rate, and more.

Melvin Gordon III Note

Gordon continues to see a slightly bigger workload than Javonte Williams, but for the most part this is a true 50-50 timeshare. Both RBs would benefit tremendously from an injury to the other one as they each play in all game situations.

Jerry Jeudy Note

The 22-year-old wideout hasn't erupted since returning from his ankle injury, but the underlying numbers are extremely encouraging. Entering Week 10, Jeudy has been targeted on 25% of his pass routes this season. For comparison, Courtland Sutton has been targeted on 19.8% of his pass routes, and that number has fallen since Jeudy's return. The second-year wideout looks poised for a strong finish to the 2021 campaign. Go get him.

Courtland Sutton Note

Sutton ran a route on 94% of Denver's dropbacks in Week 3 and was up to 98% in Week 4. This type of utilization suggests he's fully recovered from last year's ACL tear. Sutton would benefit from Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) being able to play in Week 5.

Tim Patrick Note

Patrick finished second in routes (81%) and tied for first in target share (22%) among Denver pass catchers in Week 3. KJ Hamler (ACL) is out for the season, which makes Patrick a low-end FLEX option until Jerry Jeudy (ankle) returns.

Noah Fant Note

Denver was finally trailing for most of the game in Week 4, which led to Fant putting up a 28% target share while catching six passes for 46 yards and a score. He remains an efficient player, but the Broncos simply don't like to throw the ball while leading. Moving forward, Fant should only be considered a strong start in games where we expect Denver to be playing catchup.

Teddy Bridgewater Note

Teddy Bridgewater has the early lead in the starting QB sweepstakes for the Broncos simply because they traded picks for him. Teddy was serviceable last year at times but didn't light up the stat sheet. The Denver offense is loaded with talent. It's all about whether they can stay healthy. Javonte Williams could help this backfield led by Melvin Gordon (for now) and take pressure off whoever is under center to find Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant, and others down the field. The play calling has been very conservative, though, under Vic Fangio, and neither Drew Lock nor Teddy Bridgewater feels like anything more than a placeholder for whoever is next.
