Jerry Jeudy
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Denver Broncos
2021 Fantasy Outlook
After a 15-target Week 16 last year in which Jeudy had only six catches and several egregious drops, he exploded for 7-5-140-1 in Week 17, including a spectacular 92-yard catch-and-run TD, showing why he was the second wide receiver taken in the 2020 draft. All told, Jeudy had 13 drops, one of the highest totals in recent memory (though mercifully eclipsed by Diontae Johnson’s 15) and pedestrian per-play output (7.6 YPC). On the bright side, he showed he could stretch the field with 16.5 YPC (2nd) and four catches for 40-plus yards on only 113 targets. At 6-1, 193, and running a 4.45 40, Jeudy is a smooth route runner, unusually polished for his age. And he seems to play faster in pads. The problems for Jeudy, aside from the drops, are poor QB play and competition for targets. At press time, Drew Lock and recently-acquired journeyman Teddy Bridgewater will compete for the quarterback job, the likely weak point of an otherwise solid roster. Courtland Sutton, a rising star in his own right, should be back from a torn ACL, while Tim Patrick, the biggest and most efficient Broncos receiver from a year ago, is still around after signing a second-round tender. KJ Hamler, a 2020 second-round pick, will also get a shot, and 2019 first-rounder Noah Fant is developing as one of the league’s top pass-catching TEs. Jeudy has the talent and pedigree to emerge as the No. 1, but he’s a long shot to be among the league leaders in targets. (Of course, if the Packers trade Aaron Rodgers to the Broncos, move Jeudy — and everyone else — up at least 10 spots.) Read Past Outlooks

High hopes in Year 2
WRDenver Broncos
July 9, 2021
Jeudy is a candidate for a breakout season in Denver, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic.
ANALYSIS
Jeudy enters his second year with the Broncos with high expectations based on his rookie campaign. Despite dealing with a nagging ankle injury at times last season and playing with three different starting quarterbacks, Jeudy amassed 856 receiving yards in 2020. Looking ahead, the return of fellow wideout Courtland Sutton from an ACL injury should open up even more opportunities for Jeudy in the middle of the field, where his impressive skills as a route runner can shine. Though the Broncos still need to decide who will be delivering the ball to Jeudy and Co. in 2021, a noticeable step forward in production for the 22-year-old receiver is a plausible outcome.

14 days ago
This article looks at eight players whose prices are low enough that they carry no meaningful risk in Underdog best ball drafts, including Jonnu Smith in the 13th round.
2020 Fantasy Outlook
In a rookie class loaded with talented receivers, Jeudy stands out as perhaps the best. He had 24 touchdown catches the last two seasons and averaged 12.6 and 10.6 YPT in 2018 and 2019, respectively, at Alabama. At 6-1, 193, he has only average size but good speed (4.45 40) and uncanny quickness and burst. He's a smooth route runner with a knack for getting open, good hands and excellent vision while running after the catch. He's a rare combo of raw athletic talent, football intelligence and polish. Landing in Denver with the 15th overall pick, Jeudy should start as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Courtland Sutton, with second-round selection KJ Hamler like serving as the No. 3. Second-year quarterback Drew Lock will have to improve, but if he does, there should be enough to go around for the team's top two targets and either Hamler or last year's first-rounder, tight end Noah Fant.
