Latimer caught eight of 15 targets for 76 yards during the 2016 season.
Just three years ago, Latimer looked like a combination of size and speed that was destined to do big things in Denver's passing offense. Instead, he's nabbed just 16 passes and one touchdown in three season and enters a contract year as more of a value on special teams than on offense - not exactly what one would hope for from a second-round pick. A more wide open attack under new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy may conjure up some of the production Latimer enjoyed in a spread offense at Indiana, but it's perhaps even more likely that Latimer will be playing football elsewhere sooner than later.
Latimer hauled in his only target against Jacksonville, a 10-yarder.
Latimer, who has been inactive more often than not in recent weeks, was pushed into duty against Jacksonville with Bennie Fowler on the mend and Jordan Norwood in the dog house. He managed just one catch in Denver's ice-cold offense. It was the former second-rounder's first reception since Week 3 and he's trending downward. The recent free-agent acquisition of Marlon Brown and promotion of Kalif Raymond don't show much confidence in Latimer's abilities as a receiver or returner.
Latimer passed the league's concussion protocol prior to being ruled inactive for Week 7, but he should be able to return to game action Sunday against the Chargers. He has just three catches for 22 yards on five targets throughout the 2016 regular season, keeping his fantasy value limited to the deepest of leagues.
Latimer was able to clear the league's concussion protocol earlier in the week, but was unable to practice until Saturday, when he did so on a limited basis. His status is very much up in the air at this point, but more will be known regarding Latimer's situation as game time nears.
