2020 Fantasy Outlook
Spencer finished 10th in the league with 644 total return yards in 2019 but managed just 37 yards on nine offensive touches. Expect more of the same in 2020. Despite rookie KJ Hamler's sub-4.3 speed, coach Vic Fangio has reaffirmed his confidence in Spencer as the team's returner on both punts and kicks. That should be enough, absent a stark change of plans, to keep Spencer on the roster, even if his role on offense remains extremely limited. Read Past Outlooks

Among league's best punt returners
WRDenver Broncos
January 14, 2021
Spencer returned 16 punts for 253 yards and 15 kicks for 281 yards over the course of 11 games. On offense, Spencer caught three of six targets for 26 yards and rushed three times for 19 total yards.
ANALYSIS
Spencer finished the season ranked seventh in the league in punt return yards. That success didn't translate to kick returns, where he finished 30th. Given his minimal role on offense, it'll be interesting to see what the Broncos do with Spencer this offseason as he enters exclusive-rights free agency. Rookie Tyrie Cleveland, who showed flashes as a receiver in the season finale, also looked good as a kick returner midseason when Spencer missed time midseason, while fellow rookie KJ Hamler handled punt returns.
