Denver Broncos

AFC West

Adam Trautman, the 26-year-old tight end for the Denver Broncos, had a forgettable Week 2 performance against the Washington Commanders.

Fantasy Impact: Trautman failed to reel in any receptions despite being targeted once, leaving him with a goose egg in the receiving yards and touchdowns columns. This lackluster performance contributed to the Broncos' narrow 35-33 loss. So far this season, Trautman has been targeted six times, securing five receptions for 34 yards, but he's still searching for his first touchdown. Currently ranked as TE48 for the week and TE33 for the season, Trautman will need to step up his game when the Broncos face the Miami Dolphins next week. His single target in Week 2 came late in the 4th quarter. Fantasy managers will be hoping for a more impactful performance in Week 3.

Despite the Denver Broncos' heartbreaking 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders in Week 2, 25-year-old wide receiver Brandon Johnson put on a show.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson, who currently ranks as the WR10 for the week and WR24 for the season, was targeted three times, hauling in two receptions for 66 yards. His catches resulted in touchdowns, including a stunning 50-yarder in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter. Johnson's performance this week brings his season totals to four receptions on six targets for 97 yards and two touchdowns. Despite a strong performance, the nature of his deep-play TDs exemplifies a lack of opportunity that will limit his upside.

Despite the Denver Broncos' heartbreaking 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders in Week 2, young wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. emerged as a beacon of hope for the Mile High City.

Fantasy Impact: The 21-year-old dynamo was a model of efficiency, turning his two targets into two receptions for a whopping 113 yards and a touchdown. His 60-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter was beautiful, showcasing his speed and playmaking ability. Mims also contributed on the ground, rushing for 10 yards. His performance this week has catapulted him to WR12 in the weekly fantasy rankings, a significant leap from his season-long rank of WR30. Looking ahead, Mims and the Broncos will face off against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, where he'll look to continue his upward trajectory and hopefully see more consistent targets.

Despite the Denver Broncos' heartbreaking 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders in Week 2, 27-year-old wide receiver Courtland Sutton put up a commendable performance.

Fantasy Impact: Sutton was targeted seven times, hauling in five of those for a total of 66 yards. Although he didn't find the end zone this week, his consistent involvement in the Broncos' passing game is a promising sign for fantasy managers. Sutton's season stats now stand at 12 targets, 9 receptions, 98 receiving yards, and 1 touchdown, earning him a respectable WR32 ranking for the season and a WR43 ranking for the week. His most notable play was a 21-yard catch in the fourth quarter, demonstrating his ability to make big plays when it counts. Looking ahead to Week 3, Sutton and the Broncos will face off against the Miami Dolphins, providing another opportunity for Sutton to showcase his skills and boost his fantasy value.

In a heart-stopping Week 2 showdown, Jerry Jeudy of the Denver Broncos put up a modest performance against the Washington Commanders, ending the game with 3 receptions for 25 yards on 5 targets.

Fantasy Impact: The 24-year-old wide receiver currently ranked WR71 for the week and WR88 for the season, couldn't find the end zone, leaving his fantasy managers wanting more. Despite the Broncos' narrow 35-33 loss, Jeudy showed flashes of his potential with a couple of key catches, including an 11-yard gain in the first quarter and a 7-yard gain in the second. Fantasy managers are still waiting for the 2020 first-rounder to reach his potential. Looking ahead, Jeudy hopes to bounce back against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, and fantasy managers will keep a close eye on his performance.

Despite the Denver Broncos' nail-biting 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders, 28-year-old running back Samaje Perine's performance was less than stellar.

Fantasy Impact: With only one carry for a meager 4 yards, Perine's ground game was virtually non-existent. However, he did manage to make a slight impact in the passing game, hauling in 3 of his 4 targets for a total of 20 yards. His lack of touchdowns, both on the ground and through the air, left fantasy managers wanting more. Currently ranked as RB40 for the week and RB32 for the season, Perine's fantasy value is dwindling. His performance in Week 2 did little to boost his stock, and with the Miami Dolphins on the horizon, Perine will need to step up his game if he wants to climb the fantasy rankings.

Javonte Williams, the 23-year-old Denver Broncos' running back, put up a respectable performance in Week 2 against the Washington Commanders, despite the Broncos' narrow 35-33 defeat.

Fantasy Impact: Williams carried the ball 12 times for 44 yards, including a 15-yard dash in the first quarter. He also added 14 yards on two receptions, proving his dual-threat capabilities. However, the end zone remained elusive for Williams, as he failed to score a touchdown. His season stats now stand at 96 rushing yards on 25 carries and 19 receiving yards on six receptions. Currently ranked as RB24 for the week and RB31 for the season, Williams will look to improve his numbers next week against the Miami Dolphins. Despite the lack of touchdowns, Williams' consistent yardage makes him a reliable option for fantasy managers as he continues to show his health.

Despite a heartbreaking 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders, Denver Broncos' QB Russell Wilson put on a show in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: The 34-year-old veteran threw for 308 yards and three touchdowns, completing 18 of his 32 attempts. He also added 56 yards on the ground, showcasing his dual-threat capabilities. A pair of turnovers marred Wilson's performance, but his overall output was enough to secure him the QB3 ranking for the week. Wilson has amassed 485 passing yards and five touchdowns on the season, with a single interception, earning him the QB5 spot in season-long rankings. His ability to make plays with his arm and his legs makes him a valuable asset in fantasy football. Looking ahead, Wilson and the Broncos will face off against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3, where he'll look to bounce back from this week's loss and continue his strong start to the season.

Wil Lutz connected on all four of his extra-point attempts Sunday and both of his field goal attempts as the Broncos fell to 0-2 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Lutz missed a couple of kicks in his Broncos debut but was perfect in Week 2 despite the team's loss. Playing in Denver, Lutz will have the advantage of the high altitude, but he will have to prove consistently accurate to be worth starting in fantasy. Lutz and the Broncos travel to Miami in Week 3 for their road opener.

The Broncos got lit up by Washington on Sunday, allowing 35 points and failing to force a turnover, but the defense was saved from a disastrous fantasy output with an impressive four sacks.

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos got torched from the second quarter onwards and, despite four sacks, could not stop the Commanders' offense. Denver has fallen to 0-2, with both losses coming at home to teams not expected to make the playoffs. Next up for the Broncos defense is a tough matchup against the high-flying Miami offense in the team's first road appearance of the season.

Greg Dulcich (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve by the Denver Broncos according to Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dulcich was expected to miss several weeks, so this move should come as no surprise. Adam Trautman should continue to see the majority of the snaps at tight end until Dulcich is eligible to return ahead of a Week 6 Thursday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Lil'Jordan Humphrey, who caught a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 1 loss vs. Vegas, has been promoted to the team's active roster, per Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Humphrey spent time with Sean Peyton during his tenure in New Orleans, and now the Broncos have officially added the veteran WR to their active roster. With Jerry Jeudy still working his way back from a hamstring injury, Humphrey could continue to see more looks, although it is likely rookie WR Marvin Mims will continue to be more involved as the season moves forward.

Phillip Dorsett II has been elevated from the practice squad for Denver's matchup against the Raiders. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dorsett signed with Denver's practice squad after being released ahead of the roster cutdown deadline, and now he's being elevated to the active roster for Sunday's game. He's unlikely to see a big role, however, and he almost certainly won't be fantasy relevant in the team's season opener.

Jaleel McLaughlin is expected to earn significant snaps out of the backfield as early as Week 1. The rookie should be "counted on right from the start," according to Parker Gabriel of the Denver Post. (Source: Denver Post)

Fantasy Impact: Gabriel labeled McLaughlin as the star of training camp. The undrafted free agent drew the praise of head coach Sean Payton and will compete for snaps during the season-opener versus Las Vegas, especially with Javonte Williams (knee) fresh off his ACL tear and Samaje Perine likely limited to passing downs. McLaughlin is an appealing dynasty buy and could even work his way into redraft relevance this season.

The Denver Broncos have signed RB Dwayne Washington to their practice squad. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Washington was signed by the Broncos two weeks ago but was part of the final cuts Tuesday. The former seventh-round pick will provide the Broncos with depth at running back should he get called up to the active roster at any point.

The Denver Broncos have waived WR Marquez Callaway. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Callaway joined the Broncos as a free agent after spending his first three seasons with the Saints. Despite a down season in 2022 in which he only totaled 16 receptions, Callaway could have suitors that are in need of wide receiver depth.

The Denver Broncos have waived RB Tony Jones Jr. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Jones joined the Broncos as a free agent in March, but lost his roster spot to rookie Jaleel McLoughlin. The 25-year-old is definitely a practice squad candidate if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

The Denver Broncos have kept TE Nate Adkins on their 53-man roster. (Source: Chris Tomasson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The 24-year-old undrafted free agent impressed enough in camp to make the roster. Adkins likely will have limited fantasy value considering Adam Trautman and Greg Dulcich should see the bulk of the snaps at tight end.

The Denver Broncos have waived WR Michael Bandy. (Source: Chris Tomasson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Bandy was entering his first season with the Broncos, but may end up on their practice squad after not making the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old appeared in 10 games with the Chargers last season, tallying 89 receiving yards on 10 receptions.

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos brought in Laulile to be a camp body earlier this offseason, but he failed to work his way up the depth chart and earn a roster spot. The team is now waiving him, and any team can claim him now or wait until he clears waivers and pick him up as an unrestricted free agent in a couple of days.
