Russell Wilson550.6359415731.939.9147211.51.29303.07
Josh Johnson41.425285.71.70.996.718.40.0818.57

Russell Wilson: Wilson missed three games in 2021, his first season finishing outside the top 11 fantasy quarterbacks. While the Seahawks never seemed to want to let Russ cook, Nathaniel Hackett has taken an opposite approach. Recently Denver's new head coach said about the pace of play, "as fast as he wants to go, I want to go." Barring injury, Wilson should once again finish as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in 2022.


Javonte Williams214.4954.16.4344.9335.42.6205.58
Melvin Gordon152.3662.54.826.7206.61.5138.06
Mike Boone21.391.60.534.835.50.320.09

Javonte Williams: Sharing the load evenly with Melvin Gordon, Williams racked up 1,219 yards from scrimmage and scored seven touchdowns on 246 touches as a rookie in 2021. With MG3 re-signing on a one-year deal with the Broncos, it delivers a blow to Williams' upside (until 2023), but he's still a high-end RB2 entering 2022.

Melvin Gordon: Williams (14.47) edged Gordon (14.44) in touches per game, but Gordon missed one game (Week 13) and Williams had 29 touches for 178 yards and a touchdown in that outing. While the workload will favor Williams, Gordon should get enough work to perform as a flex-level producer.


Jerry Jeudy79.1995.27.41.811.70.05184.94
Courtland Sutton711004.17.3000179.71
K.J. Hamler43.2555.34.44.520.30.14106.4
Montrell Washington13.1162.21.200029.97
Seth Williams10.2126.6100023.76
Kendall Hinton664.40.500012.44

Jerry Jeudy: It's an understatement to say that Jeudy's fantasy trajectory is pointing upward following Denver's trade for Russell Wilson. The former first-round pick entered the NFL as a polished route-runner, but he produced two seasons of modest production in part due to the team's poor quarterback play. Entering his age-23 season, Jeudy is poised for a breakout season, barring injury.

Courtland Sutton: Sutton broke out in his second season (2019) with 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns, but then he tore his ACL at the beginning of the 2020 season. Given Wilson's accuracy as a deep passer, Sutton could turn out to be a significantly undervalued WR3 in fantasy drafts this summer. The 6-foot-4 receiver has averaged 15.2 yards per reception so far in his career.


Albert Okwuegbunam40.7457.63.700088.31
Greg Dulcich38.64423.300083.3
Eric Tomlinson4.848.90.40009.69
Andrew Beck18.90.10001.99

Albert Okwuegbunam: Okwuegbunam finished his second season with 33 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns. Nathaniel Hackett said this spring that the team will use Albert O. more as a "move tight end" and that he's "[e]xcited to get the ball in his hands."

Greg Dulcich: A former walk-on wide receiver that converted to tight end at UCLA, Dulcich is a third-round rookie that took more first-team reps than most might have expected earlier this offseason. Regardless of who "starts" between Okwuegbunam and Dulcich, the season-ending injury to Tim Patrick could create many additional opportunities for Dulcich. A threat to make plays down the field, Dulcich averaged 18.26 yards per reception over his past two seasons at UCLA combined (68/1,242/10).
