Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Grabs two touchdowns in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman nabbed nine of 18 targets for 142 yards and two touchdowns during the 2017 season

Heuerman put up eerily similar numbers to 2016, nine catches for 142 yards in 2017 as compared to nine catches for 141 yards in 2016. The big difference was that he manged to score his first two career touchdowns this season, nearly three years after being drafted in the third round out of Ohio State. Heuerman has flashed, at times, his ability to split safeties and make big plays like his 54-yard touchdown against the Colts in Week 15. He hasn't made those plays with any level of consistency though and faces a contract year in 2018 in which he looks to potentially start the offseason behind 2017 fifth-round pick Jake Butt and Austin Traylor, an undrafted free agent who ended up getting starter-level snaps at points during the season.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Hauls in 54-yard touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman brought in his sole target for a 54-yard touchdown in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts.

The third-year tight end scored his second touchdown of the season when he caught a perfectly thrown Brock Osweiler pass down the seam late in the third quarter and then fought off a pair of defensive backs to get in the end zone. It was only Heuerman's eighth catch and 14th target of the campaign, so fantasy success has clearly been few and far between for the Ohio State product. However, with Osweiler now slated to be under center for the final two games of the season due to Trevor Siemian's shoulder injury, he'll potentially be able to continue building a rapport with the former when Denver takes on the suspect Redskins defense in Week 16.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Heuerman showing enough improvement in his recovery from the knee issue to return from a two-game absence, he'll be included in a three-way timeshare at tight end with Austin Traylor and Virgil Green. That arrangement seemingly cannibalizes the minimal fantasy value of all three involved.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Listed as questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman (knee) is listed as questionablefor Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Heuerman was inactive last week, but he returned to full practice Friday, suggesting that he has a solid shot to return to action Sunday. In that scenario, he'll contend with Austin Traylor and Virgil Green for snaps at tight end, an arrangement that doesn't provide Heuerman with much bankable fantasy upside in Week 13.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

With Heuerman inactive and A.J. Derby (shoulder) no longer in the mix, the Broncos' Week 12 tight end corps should once again be led by Austin Traylor and Virgil Green.
