2021 Fantasy Outlook
After Denver's Week 5 bye, it appeared that there was a concerted effort to get Okwuegbunam involved in the passing game. The 2020 fourth-rounder recorded 10 catches on 14 targets, including four red zone targets, in the team's first three games after the bye. Part of that was due to an injury to Noah Fant, who missed the first game of the aforementioned stretch, but even when Fant returned in the following contest, Okwuegbunam put together his best performance, catching all seven of his targets for 60 yards. An ACL tear in Week 9 ended his rookie season early, but Okwuegbunam should be available for training camp and profiles as Denver's No. 2 tight end behind Fant. Read Past Outlooks

Okwuegbunam secured all four of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.
ANALYSIS
Through two weeks, Okwuegbunam's involvement in the Denver offense has remained consistent. The 23-year-old played 56 percent of offensive snaps in Week 1 and 54 percent in Week 2. It appears the Broncos' coaching staff is staying true to their desire to get the 6-foot-5, 258-pounder more involved in his second year. Even so, Okwuegbunam is hard to trust in fantasy lineups as he will likely be dependent on touchdowns to provide any sort of value. The tight end's best path to production would come if starter Noah Fant ever has to miss time with an injury. Okwuegbunam and the Broncos get a soft matchup against the Jets in Week 3.

He enjoyed his two best collegiate seasons while playing with Lock, amassing 17 receiving touchdowns, and figures to be TE3 with some red-zone upside in Year 1.
