Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman (sore knee) is close to returning to the field, Troy E. Renck of reports.

On the Broncos' posted depth chart Heuerman remains listed as the starter, followed by Jake Butt, Austin Traylor, Matt LaCosse, Brian Parker and Troy Fumagalli. In Heuerman's absence from practice, Austin Traylor and Jake Butt have seen first-team reps. From a fantasy standpoint, Denver's tight ends are not viewed as bankable commodities, though if Butt can stay healthy, he has some upside as a pass-catcher.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Still not at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman (knee) isn't practicing Wednesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

With Heuerman missing the early part of training camp due to knee soreness, Jake Butt and Austin Traylor have both been getting reps with the first-team offense. The No. 1 tight end job seems to be up for grabs, though the winner is unlikely to see a heavy flow of targets. The Broncos may end up deploying a committee at the position, in which case Heuerman likely would spend most of his time blocking. Butt is the upside choice among the group.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Dealing with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman is dealing with knee soreness and could be limited in training camp, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Heuerman is slated to start at tight end for the Broncos, but Jake Butt and Austin Traylor could see additional reps with the first team throughout training camp if Heuerman is sidelined due to knee soreness. The issue sounds relatively minor, however, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Heuerman return to full activity later this week.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Ready for top job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman should be the favorite for the Broncos' No.1 job, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Klis' logic is essentially that, because Jake Butt -- the apparent future at the position for Denver -- missed all of his 2017 rookie season to a torn ACL, Heuerman should be considered the 2018 de facto starter. The point is fair, but ignores the fact that teams start inexperienced players all the time and that Heuerman, who also tore his ACL ahead of his 2015 rookie season, hasn't done much in Mile High. Since being drafted in the third round in 2015, Heuerman has just 18 catches and, though he has proved to be dangerous up the seam, has never established himself as starter material. After a position shakeup at the end of last season, it was undrafted Austin Traylor who garnered more snaps than Heuerman, 179 to 139, during the final five games of the year. If Heuerman ends up as the team's starter it will be because he finally turned it on this offseason, not because he has provided any previous production to warrant the job.

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.
