2019 Fantasy Outlook
Cracraft piled up 2,701 yards from 2013 through 2016 in Washington State's wide-open attack. He didn't get a chance to gain yardage in the pros until Week 17 of the 2018 season, during which he hauled in a 44-yard reception. He isn't guaranteed to make it through Denver's logjam of young targets, but may - like Tim Patrick last year - make the final roster as a special-teams contributor and have the chance to move up the ladder. Despite just 12 returns for 40 yards in eight games, he was the Broncos' top punt returner in 2018 and also fielded three kicks during the season. Read Past Outlooks

Out at least a week

Oblique
July 20, 2019
Cracraft is expected to miss "at least a week" with an oblique injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Cracraft evidently picked up the injury fielding a punt late during Friday's practice. While the severity isn't known, the fact the second-year receiver is out at least a week is a bit troubling, especially considering two separate Broncos receivers retired this week potentially opening the door for Cracraft to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Juwann Winfree and Fred Brown stand to benefit the most with Cracraft's absence.
