Player Outlook

Hamler is expected to be the No. 4 receiver for the Broncos this season, but he has minimal Fantasy value coming into the year. He's not worth drafting in most leagues. The Broncos' top three receivers are locked in with Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, and Hamler should be No. 4 if healthy. He's coming back from last year's torn ACL suffered prior to Week 4, but he's expected to be healthy for the start of the season. With Russell Wilson now the quarterback in Denver, there could be plenty of big plays for Hamler this season. But unless he's producing at a high level on a consistent basis, it will be hard to trust him as a Fantasy starter in most formats.

Player News
  • Hamler (knee) may be placed on the PUP list to begin training camp, Troy Renck of Denver7 ABC reports. Hamler got in some work during the offseason program but mostly seems to have been held out of team drills at June minicamp. He's coming back from an ACL tear suffered in late September, with the timing giving him a decent chance to be ready for Week 1 even if he does start camp on the PUP list. The 2020 second-round pick projects as Denver's No. 4 receiver, behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy (groin) and Tim Patrick.

  • Hamler (knee) practiced Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Hamler tore his left ACL at the end of September last season and was sidelined for OTAs last week, but he was able to participate during the Broncos' light practice Tuesday. Denver will likely be cautious with the Penn State product during the offseason to avoid any potential setback, but it's still encouraging to see him participating in team activities. With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick all ahead of him on the depth chart, the 2020 second-round pick will have an uphill battle to fantasy relevancy, but it remains to be seen how Denver's new QB Russell Wilson will divvy out targets.

  • Hamler (knee) is at Day 1 of Denver's OTAs, but he isn't participating, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Hamler tore his left ACL at the end of September last season, but there have been numerous reports that the 2020 second-round wideout is well ahead of schedule heading into the 2022 campaign. Regardless, the Broncos are likely to be extremely cautious with the Penn State product to avoid any potential setback. With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick all ahead of him on the depth chart, Hamler faces an uphill battle to fantasy relevancy, but it remains to be seen how Denver's new QB Russell Wilson will divvy out targets. If healthy, the 22-year-old speedster could carve out a sizable role in the Broncos' new-look offense during the 2022 campaign.

  • GM George Paton relayed Friday that Hamler is "well ahead of schedule" in his recovery from a torn left ACL, The Athletic's Nick Kosmider reports. The report adds that Hamler, who sustained his injury back on Sept. 26, has progressed to the point that he was able to run routes and catch passes from Denver's new QB Russell Wilson last month. While it remains to be seen when Hamler will be able to practice without restriction, the 2020 second-rounder noted, "I expect myself to be ready before the season." Given that the Broncos also roster Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick, there's not a clear path for a high volume of targets for Hamler as the 2022 campaign approaches, but considering the team's major upgrade at quarterback, the 22-year-old speedster could carve out fantasy utility down the road if presented with added opportunities if/when injuries hit Denver's wideout corps.

  • Hamler is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn left ACL, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. While that's an encouraging report, there's still no precise timetable yet for the wideout's return to the field. That said, given that Hamler sustained his injury back on Sept. 26, it seems likely that he'll be able to recover in time to re-establish his role in Denver's offense this summer. The 2020 second-rounder saw action in just three games last year, and he'll rejoin a deep WR corps that also includes Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick.
