Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Just as he did during his rookie season, Hamilton disappointed for much of 2019 before picking up steam during the season's final few games. Troubling was that the typically sure-handed Hamilton posted a drop rate of 7.7 percent, which would have ranked in the bottom 20 in the league had he qualified with enough targets. Courtland Sutton will be returning as WR1, and Tim Patrick and Diontae Spencer are aces on special teams. The Broncos just drafted three wide receivers, placing Hamilton firmly on the roster bubble heading into 2020.
Entering the final quarter of the season, the 2018 fourth-rounder had just five receptions for 61 yards to his name. Following the season-ending injury to Emmanuel Sanders, Hamilton blossomed - leading the Broncos with 25 receptions during the season's final four games. He averaged just 7.3 yard per catch during that span and though he doesn't have the kind of straight-line speed that can take the top off of a defense, his game depends more on sharp routes than athleticism. If Courtland Sutton is able to stress defenses up the sideline and rookie Noah Fant controls the seam, Hamilton could become a high-volume target underneath for Joe Flacco.
Denver's coaching staff worked with Hamilton during the Senior Bowl and reportedly viewed him as the soundest route runner of the bunch before selecting him in the fourth round. He never came close to matching the 82 receptions he had as a freshman, the potential product of a Penn State offense that rode Saquon Barkley. That said, he did manage to score nine touchdowns as a senior, matching the combined total from his first three seasons. Though not a burner, Hamilton's refined routes, strong hands and experience in the slot could make him an early contributor. He ranked second among the draft's receiver in team quarterback rating when targeted in the slot in 2017, per Pro Football Focus.
