Russell Wilson530.5334.23952.223.3411.94552531.93264.45
Jarrett Stidham33.920.8240.71.531.195.619.60.1716.35

Russell Wilson: Wilson's debut season with the Broncos was a flop. He set career lows in completion percentage (60.5%), TDs/TD% (16, 3.3%) and passer rating (84.4). From Weeks 1 to 13, Wilson had only one top-12 weekly performance (Week 4), but he exceeded 24 fantasy points in three of his final four games in 2022. Transitioning to Sean Payton's offense improves optimism about Wilson's 2023 outlook (just ask Payton himself), but he is better drafted as a fantasy QB2.


Javonte Williams177.7781.94.9838.5276.71.5163.99
Samaje Perine152.8649.44.0529.8220.11.3133.95
Jaleel McLaughlin48.7209.41.224.637.70.235.53
Michael Burton5.617.40.173.927.30.18.04

Javonte Williams: Handling seven touches including four receptions in Week 2 of the preseason, Williams (knee) described getting tackled as "the biggest hurdle ... left with the whole recovery process." Returning to game action this quickly after tearing multiple ligaments is extremely impressive, to say the least. Through 21 career games, Williams has 250 carries for 1,107 yards (4.4 YPC, 52.7 YPG), 59 receptions for 392 yards and a total of seven touchdowns.

Samaje Perine: Perine is poised for a "significant role" in Denver's backfield throughout the season, and potentially an even more significant role in the early part of the season even though Williams won't miss any regular-season games to start the year. Sean Payton has a long history of giving substantial workloads to the team's second back.


Courtland Sutton70.8960.
Jerry Jeudy68.7964.45.52.719.60.08166.23
Marvin Mims54.1689.74.1000120.62
Brandon Johnson9.6115.30.700020.53

Courtland Sutton: After missing nearly all of 2020, Sutton has appeared in 32 of 34 games over the past two seasons and has averaged 61/803/2 over that time. Like with Jeudy, Sutton should benefit from the offensive coaching upgrade. Given the number of injuries including to Jeudy (hamstring), it's possible that Sutton outscores all of Denver's receivers this season.

Jerry Jeudy: Jeudy set career highs in receptions (67), yards (972) and touchdowns (six) on 100 targets over 15 games in 2022. Jeudy had 53-plus yards in 10 of his final 11 games if we exclude Week 10 (when he played only one offensive snap). During that 11-game stretch, Jeudy posted a 60/842/5 line with a 72.3% catch rate and 10.14 yards per target. Given the offseason coaching change and Jeudy's production last season when healthy, he has the potential for even better numbers in 2023. Speaking of his health, however, Jeudy is dealing with a hamstring injury that could impact his early-season availability.

Marvin Mims: Tim Patrick missed all of 2022 with a torn ACL, and unfortunately he'll now miss all of 2023 with a torn Achilles. Meanwhile, the Broncos waived KJ Hamler with an NFI designation as he tends to a heart condition (pericarditis). Now Jeudy is dealing with a hamstring injury that could potentially sideline him to open the season. The unfortunate rash of injuries to the Broncos' wide receivers opens the door for Mims, the team's second-round pick, to immediately take on a large role within the passing offense.


Greg Dulcich45.6563.93.400099.59
Adam Trautman18.5213.81.300038.43
Chris Manhertz8.9100.60.600018.11
Nate Adkins223.10.10003.91

Greg Dulcich: Dulcich had 33 catches for 411 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games as a rookie in 2022. Sean Payton said Dulcich has "a unique skill set. He's got traits. In the passing game we use the term, 'Joker' where you can get matchups."
