  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Logs one catch

    Hamler caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.

    Hamler's disappointing performance Sunday does not reflect a lack of involvement in the team's offense. In fact, the speedy wideout played on 71 percent of the Broncos' snaps in Week 2, which was way up from 36 percent in the season opener. Hamler's increase in playing time was certainly expected with fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy being placed on injured reserve after suffering a high ankle sprain. The 2020 second-round pick was touted throughout training camp as being a versatile weapon for Denver's offense, but that just hasn't translated on Sundays yet. Although he is hard to trust from a fantasy standpoint, Hamler will look to get going in another favorable matchup when the Broncos host the Jets in Week 3.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Collects three receptions

    Hamler caught three of four targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.

    Hamler was tied for third in targets with fellow wideout Tim Patrick, behind only Noah Fant and Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy's exit from the contest with a high ankle sprain likely will cause the wide receiver to miss multiple weeks. In his absence, Hamler figures to benefit and be used more in Denver's passing attack. The 2020 second-round pick will have a chance to take a step forward when the Broncos visit the Jaguars in Week 2.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Ready for Week 1

    Hamler (illness) doesn't appear on the Broncos' initial Week 1 injury report released Wednesday.

    An illness kept Hamler out of the Broncos' preseason finale, but he's good to go for Sunday's season opener against the Giants, which will mark starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's regular-season debut with Denver. Given that the 2020 second-round pick is behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick in Denver's wideout pecking order, steady weekly volume could be hard to come by for Hamler to start the season.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Sits out preseason finale

    Hamler (illness) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Hamler participated in pregame warmups, though ultimately he did not play. That was the expected outcome, and he has now been sidelined with a non-COVID-related illness since Aug. 24. For now, the issue doesn't appear likely to threaten Hamler's availability for Week 1 against the Giants. Assuming he is able to suit up, he's likely to serve as the team's third receiver behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Making case to play Saturday

    Hamler (illness) took part in pregame warmups before Saturday's preseason game versus the Rams, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    Hamler was absent for most of the practices this week, the result of a non-COVID-19 illness. Coach Vic Fangio told Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com on Thursday that Hamler "probably won't play" in the Broncos' exhibition closer. But the second-year wide receiver now appears as if he's attempting to give it a go. If Hamler is cleared to take the field, he likely will join Courtland Sutton (knee) and Jerry Jeudy in three-wide sets.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Misses another practice

    Hamler (illness) isn't practicing Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Hamler is missing a second consecutive practice due to a non-COVID-related illness. As long as the 2020 second-round pick remains sidelined, Tim Patrick will get an opportunity to handle No. 3 receiver reps without competition.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Unlikely for Saturday

    Hamler (illness) isn't likely to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

    Hamler missed practice all week with a non-COVID-19 illness, though by Thursday he'd at least made enough progress to observe from the sideline. The temporary absence shouldn't be a big factor in his competition with Tim Patrick for the No. 3 receiver role, especially after Hamler caught three passes for 107 yards and two TDs over the first two weeks of the preseason.
