Russell Wilson550.6359415731.939.9147211.51.29303.07
Brett Rypien41.425.5287.71.721.046.710.10.0517.62

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. Denver's new head coach has said about the pace of play, "as fast as [Wilson] wants to go, I want to go." Barring injury, Wilson should once again finish as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in 2022.


Javonte Williams214.4954.16.4346.5342.22.7207.66
Melvin Gordon152.3662.54.826.7206.71.5138.07
Mike Boone21.391.60.534.835.60.320.1
Damarea Crockett0000000

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 bit of a blow to Williams' upside (until 2023), but Gordon himself has said that the team wants Williams "to be the guy."

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 Broncos want Williams "to be the guy" and the workload will favor Denver's second-year back, Gordon should get enough work to put him into flex consideration.


Courtland Sutton77.91077.87.9000194.13
Jerry Jeudy79.2997.87.41.811.70.05185.25
K.J. Hamler43.4557.84.44.520.30.14106.75
Montrell Washington9.2117.80.900021.78
Tyrie Cleveland7.195.60.700017.31
Jalen Virgil2.533.30.30006.38

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 be positioned to have the best season of his career. The 6-foot-4 receiver has averaged 15.2 yards per reception so far in his career.

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 (disappointing) 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.


Albert Okwuegbunam50.4568.94.5000109.09
Greg Dulcich31353.42.700067.04
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. With Noah Fant now in Seattle and Greg Dulcich out for at least the first four games, Albert O. has plenty of upside in what should be a much better offense in 2022 with Russell Wilson under center.

Greg Dulcich: The season-ending injury to Tim Patrick seemed as though it would create more opportunities for Dulcich, but the former Bruin will miss at least the first four games of the season as he starts his NFL career on short-term IR. A former walk-on wide receiver that converted to tight end at UCLA, Dulcich is a threat to make plays down the field as he averaged 18.26 yards per reception over his past two seasons at UCLA combined (68/1,242/10).
