2021 Fantasy Outlook
Jewell, a 2018 fourth-rounder, emerged as a quality starter for Denver last season, compiling five-plus tackles in all but two games. The Iowa product seemingly lacks the ideal athleticism to star in Vic Fangio's system, but at least to start the coming season Jewell projects to start alongside Alexander Johnson, with 2021 third-round pick Baron Browning waiting in the wings should Jewell struggle.

Jewell will have surgery on his torn pectoral Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jewell was placed on IR Tuesday and is set to miss the remainder of the season. Justin Strnad is likely to serve as a starting inside linebacker for the foreseeable future, but the Broncos also signed Micah Kiser off the Rams' practice squad this week.

Andy Segedin takes a deep dive into how the Broncos will fare under new coach Vic Fangio, among other pressing topics.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted in the fourth round of the 2018 draft as an heir apparent at inside linebacker, injuries to Brandon Marshall pushed Jewell into the starting lineup early. He finished his rookie campaign with nine starts, 58 tackles, four tackles for loss, and three passes defended. Marshall is in Oakland now and a calf injury to Jewell's presumed tandem partner, Todd Davis, has further accelerated Jewell's development as the sophomore has been calling the defense until Davis returns. Inside linebackers have put together some prolific seasons under head coach Vic Fangio and, while Jewell isn't quite the athlete of some of Fangio's former studs, the team showed its faith in him by eschewing other potential options in the draft and free agency.
