RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark logged six receptions for 63 yards in Friday's 30-13 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

The 32-year-old posted his best reception total since Week 11 and highest yardage total since Week 12. Denmark's importance to the offense goes up a notch whenever Weston Dressler (upper body) is sidelined, keeping him as a cost-effective and viable DFS option for the time being with the latter on the injured list. He'll look to turn in strong production again in Week 17 against the Stampeders.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark posted three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 28-19 win over the Eskimos.

The veteran continues to provide steady production, with Saturday serving as the seventh contest in the last eight in which he's posted at least three catches. Denmark has also scored three touchdowns in the last three weeks and is just one score away from equaling the career high of eight he established last season. The 32-year-old will look to reach that milestone versus the Tiger-Cats in Week 16.

September 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark tallied two receptions for 51 yards in Friday's 29-9 win over the Redblacks.

The veteran saw a notable drop in production as compared to the previous six games, contests in which he'd managed no fewer than four receptions and as many as eight. Denmark still eclipsed 50 yards receiving for the third consecutive game and could have a bigger role in Week 15 versus the Eskimos if Weston Dressler (upper body) is ruled out.

September 10, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught five passes for 65 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-28 win over the Roughriders.

It's the second time in three games Denmark has gotten into the end zone twice, giving the veteran WR six scores on the season. He hasn't topped 100 receiving yards in a game yet in 2017, though -- in fact, his season high is only 69 yards -- making him a boom or bust play for fantasy purposes.

September 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark totaled six receptions for 55 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Riders.

Denmark has been one of the steadiest sources of production in the Winnipeg air attack over the last five games. He's racked up 29 receptions for 250 yards and two touchdowns over that span, doing the majority of his work within close proximity to the line of scrimmage. It was certainly encouraging to see Denmark put up solid numbers despite Weston Dressler's return, and he'll look to continue on the same track in the Week 12 rematch against the Riders.

August 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught eight passes for 47 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 34-31 overtime win over the Alouettes.

His two scores bookended the scoring for the Bombers, as he caught a six-yard strike from Matt Nichols in the first quarter and then hauled in a 10-yard TD in the extra frame. Denmark's role as a possession option has him averaging a career-low 10.1 yards per catch in 2017, but as long as he continues getting open in the end zone he'll be able to maintain solid fantasy value.

August 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark notched seven receptions for 69 yards in Saturday's 39-12 win over the Ti-Cats.

The veteran wideout paced the Bombers in receptions, and both his catch and yardage totals served as season bests. Denmark has been serviceable in a secondary role in the Winnipeg offense thus far, with his targets having risen in the wake of Weston Dressler's absence due to a lower body injury. Denmark should once again play a fairly substantial role in next Thursday's potential shootout versus the Eskimos.

July 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught one pass for a 17-yard touchdown in Friday's 45-42 loss to the Lions.

It was his first TD reception of the year. Denmark is purely a depth option in Winnipeg, catching just six passes for 94 yards through four games, but the 31-year-old showed last season when Darvin Adams was out with an arm injury that he can still be productive when called upon.

June 16, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught three passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale.

Denmark tallied eight touchdowns in 10 games after joining the Blue Bombers midway through last year, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he reached paydirt Thursday. Denmark is set to open the season as the third option in Winnipeg's passing game behind Weston Dressler and Darvin Adams.

November 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark totaled 53 yards on three receptions in Sunday's 32-31 semi-final loss to the Lions.

Although he was relatively quiet Sunday while Ryan Smith and Weston Dressler took the lead, Denmark enjoyed a highly successful regular season in which he easily set a career high in touchdowns (eight) in just 10 games. The veteran receiver has amassed 359 receptions for 4,870 yards in six seasons in Winnipeg and doesn't look to be showing any signs of a downturn in production if the 2016 campaign is any indication.

November 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark will not play in Friday's game against the Redblacks due to an undisclosed injury, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

It's not clear why Denmark is sitting out Friday, but he is not listed on the depth chart for the Blue Bombers' regular season finale. Depending on the severity of his setback he should have a chance to return to action for Winnipeg's postseason run. Tori Gurley will get the start in Denmark's place this week.

October 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark notched 75 yards and a touchdown on six catches in Friday's 35-32 victory over the Lions.

The veteran now has an impressive five-game streak with a touchdown, notching at least four catches in each of those contests. Denmark's score Friday brought the Bombers within a Justin Medlock extra point of tying the game at 32 with 2:27 remaining. Denmark has become one of the most dependable receivers in the CFL for fantasy purposes this season, tallying no less than three receptions in any contest and scoring a career-high eight touchdowns.

October 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught four passes for 64 yards and a touchdown in Friday's loss to the Eskimos.

He's been a TD machine when he's been in the lineup, and Denmark now has six touchdowns in just seven games to go along with 39 catches for 533 yards. If he doesn't find his way back into head coach Mike O'Shea's doghouse, he should stay productive over the final four games of the season.

September 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark notched nine receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 36-34 loss to the Stamps.

The 30-year-old got into the end zone for the second straight week, while also hitting a high-water mark in receptions on the season. Denmark was a frequent and successful target of Matt Nichols throughout a memorable comeback from a 24-0 late second-quarter deficit. The Arkansas-Monticello product now now scored in four of the six games he's been active for this season, and his five touchdowns equal the career high he set in his CFL rookie campaign back in 2011.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark totaled 30 yards and a touchdown on three catches in Saturday's 46-29 victory over the Argos.

Denmark celebrated a return to game action after being held out as a healthy scratch last week, hauling in a key 15-yard touchdown in the third quarter that knotted the score at 29. The 30-year-old's score was his first visit to the end zone since he'd torn through this same Argos secondary for 195 yards and a pair of touchdowns back in Week 8.

September 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark will return to game action against the Argonauts on Saturday, Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290 Radio reports.

Denmark was a healthy scratch for last week's win over the Roughriders. The slotback's fantasy stock had been in a free fall as he was demoted from the first-team offense in practice, but the veteran now has a chance to reverse ship and help the Blue Bombers try to extend their winning streak to seven games. Remember, he ripped the Argos for 195 yards and two touchdowns in week 8.

September 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark is not expected to suit up Saturday against the Roughriders, TSN's Gary Lawless reports.

Denmark was bumped to the second team at Wednesday's practice, and it now looks like he will not suit up altogether this week. The Blue Bombers will provide their own update on Denmark's Week 12 status when they release their depth chart sometime Friday.

September 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark did not work with the starters during Wednesday's practice, according to Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290.

Denmark made an immediate impact for the Blue Bombers after debuting in Week 7, tallying 14 receptions for 264 yards and three touchdowns over two games. However, his contributions fell off over the last couple weeks, and they figure to further for the time being if he is no longer part of the starting lineup.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark secured five receptions for 53 yards in Friday's 32-18 victory over the Als.

The veteran wideout wasn't quite as spectacular as he'd been over his first two games of the season, when he'd tallied 14 receptions for 264 yards and three scores in Weeks 7 and 8. However, it was a rather muted night for the Blue Bombers' air attack overall, so Denmark largely made the most of his limited opportunities. He figures to continue serving as an important cog in the Winnipeg attack, particularly while Weston Dressler (lower body) and Darwin Adams (arm) remain sidelined.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark caught seven passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's win over the Argos.

The switch to Matt Nichols at quarterback three games ago has woken up the Blue Bombers' offense, but Denmark's return to the lineup has kicked it into another gear. In two games, the veteran slotback has caught 14 passes for 264 yards and three TDs. While it's highly unlikely he'll be able to maintain that pace, he should stay productive as long as Nichols is under center.

August 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark hauled in seven receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 37-11 victory over the Ti-Cats.

The 30-year-old helped make up for the absences of starting wideouts Weston Dressler and Darvin Adams, equaling Thomas Mayo for the team lead in receptions and notching a first-quarter touchdown following an explosive punt return by Kevin Fogg. Denmark was third on the Blue Bombers last season with 57 catches for 718 yards and three touchdowns before signing with the Roughriders in March, but returned to Winnipeg on July 31 following his release from Saskatchewan. The veteran wideout's role figures to fluctuate as the season unfolds depending on the health of the team's front-line receivers.

August 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Denmark is listed as a starting wide receiver on the depth chart for Wednesday's game against the Tiger-Cats, Drew Edwards of the Hamilton Spectator reports.

Denmark hasn't yet appeared in any games during the 2016 season, but in 2015, he caught 57 passes for 718 yards and three touchdowns over 18 game appearances. He'll start alongside fellow receivers Thomas Mayo, Kris Adams, and Rory Kohlert.
