Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Two catches against KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton snared two of his three targets for 26 receiving yards during Sunday's 43-16 loss to the Chiefs.

Hamilton's reception and yardage totals from Week 7 mark season highs for the Penn State product, though it's been an inefficient year overall. He's hauled in just five of the 14 total passes thrown his way in 2020, while a 4.1 yards-per-target average severely caps his fantasy upside heading into a Week 8 matchup against the Chargers.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Has almost killer drop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton did not record a reception despite two targets during Sunday's 18-12 win over New England.

Leading 15-3 late in the third quarter, the Denver offense got the ball in Patriots territory after a fumble recovery. Facing third and short, Drew Lock took a shot down field and put the ball on Hamilton's hands, but the Penn State product lost it. The play would have put Denver inside the five-yard line, but instead the team had to settle for a long field goal. Hamilton has just three catches on 11 targets this season and has struggled with drops dating back to last season. Expect a very strong push from fellow Nittany Lion KJ Hamler once the rookie returns to form from a hamstring injury.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Shut out against Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton did not garner a target during Sunday's 28-10 loss to Tampa Bay.

Hamilton fielded 19 percent of the offensive snaps against the Buccaneers, but Diontae Spencer (one target) was the next-most involved receiver behind starters Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler. Even with Courtland Sutton (knee-ACL) unavailable for the rest of the season, it appears Hamilton may be no more than a peripheral contributor to the Broncos' passing game. He has six targets through the first three weeks of 2020, with Denver heading into a Thursday night matchup against the Jets.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Just misses game-clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught one of three targets for 18 years during Monday's 16-14 loss to Tennessee.

Hamilton's night could have been a lot brighter if he and Drew Lock had connected on a would-be touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Nursing a one-point lead, Lock launched a pass on third-and-long to the end zone, but the ball was overthrown and toward the sideline. Instead, the Broncos punted and Tennessee made the comeback. Hamilton is in a precarious spot on the Broncos' roster heading into Week 2. He was effectively the No. 3 WR for the opener, but depending on the health of Courtland Sutton (shoulder) and KJ Hamler (hamstring), Hamilton might not even be active Week 2.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Faces competition from draft picks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The selections of wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler in this weekend's draft pose a threat for Hamilton's role in 2020, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Just as he did to end his rookie campaign in 2018, Hamilton ended 2019 on a high note, collecting 11 of his 28 catches, 130 of his 297 yards, and his lone touchdown of the season in Denver's final two games. That didn't completely make up for him being in Joe Flacco's doghouse for much of the first half of the season or a key drop Week 13 against the Chargers. It was never a mystery that Denver was going to select a WR2 early to complement Courtland Sutton, but adding a second makes things interesting. Hamler, who attended Penn State with Hamilton, offers sub-4.3-40 speed from the slot. Head coach Vic Fangio told reporters that Diontae Spencer will be difficult to remove from his returner duties. That likely means that Hamilton, Tim Patrick, Fred Brown and 2019 draft pick Juwann Winfree are all competing for -- at most -- two roster spots.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Shows potential to end year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught 28 of 52 passes for 297 yards an a touchdown during the 2019 season.

Hamilton hadn't done much for most of the season, but he showed some life during Denver's final two games, with 39.2% of his catches and 43.8% of his yards coming in wins over Detroit and Oakland. Though he seemed to have fallen out of favor with Joe Flacco and Brandon Allen, 28 of his 52 targets came during Drew Lock's five-game audition. Hamilton is a nice option short and over the middle, but he doesn't seem to be an ideal option to stretch the field opposite Courtland Sutton. He may actually be well served if Denver, as expected, looks to upgrade the WR2 spot; with an extra threat on the outside, Hamilton may have more room to exert damage over the middle of the field.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Leads team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught five of six passes for 65 yards during Sunday's 16-15 win over the Raiders.

All five of Hamilton's catches went for first downs Sunday, including two third-down conversions. It's been a mostly dismal season for the Penn State product, but he'll finish on a high note as Denver's leading receiver in each of the last two games of the season. His value heading into his third season will likely be dependent on what Denver does in the draft and free agency. Upgrading the outside receiver spot opposite Courtland Sutton would appear to be a priority, which could push Hamilton into a more natural WR3/slot-receiver role.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Tallies first receiving TD of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught all six of his targets for 65 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-17 win against Detroit.

The 24-year-old wideout was trending towards a breakout performance, as his nine targets last week against Kansas City topped his previous season high by three. He was again highly involved Sunday, tying Tim Patrick for second on the team with six targets and finishing just one notch behind Kenny Golladay for a game-high 66 receiving yards. Hamilton closed out the 2018 campaign as one of the more productive receivers in fantasy, racking up 25 catches for 182 yards and two touchdowns over the final quarter of the regular season. He has a solid chance to wrap up 2019 with a bang as well, taking on an Oakland defense in Week 17 that ranks 27th against the pass.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Targeted nine times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught two of nine targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 23-3 loss in Kansas City.

Rookie Drew Lock looked Hamilton's way early and often Sunday with minimal results. Some of those miscues were poor passes by Lock, good plays by the Kansas City defense, and Hamilton definitely alligator-arming one or two in Sunday's snowy conditions. As the season winds down, it's been a disappointing sophomore season for Hamilton after the promise he showed to end his rookie campaign. If you're feeling optimistic, you can look at Lock's first three starts, see that Hamilton has been targeted 16 times and figure that with the season ending at home against Detroit and Oakland -- owners of the league's 31st- and 27th-ranked pass defenses, respectively -- Hamilton will have a shot to end 2019 on a high note.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Remains non-factor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught two of four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 38-24 win over the Texans.

Hamilton remains an afterthought in Denver's offense, with just 15 catches and no touchdowns this season. His value in redraft leagues is negligible.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Has big drop in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught two of three targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.

On his third quarterback of the season, Hamilton caught his first passes since Week 7 during Sunday's win, including a gritty catch over the middle to convert a first-quarter third down. That was all overshadowed late in the fourth quarter when, with the Broncos driving and the game tied, Hamilton ran a clear-out underneath and dropped the pass over the middle. Had he caught it, he would have had a path to the end zone for a 34-yard touchdown. Instead, the groans regarding the sophomore's performance this season continue. Hamilton has faded far behind fellow 2018 draftee Courtland Sutton and the recently healthy Tim Patrick. These next four games will be a WR3 tryout for 2020, and it starts with a matchup against Houston's 28th-ranked pass defense.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Catchless, again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton was unable to bring in his only target of Sunday's 20-3 loss in Buffalo.

Hamilton went catchless for the sixth time in 11 games this season. He hasn't recorded a reception since Week 7. Snaps continue to not be an issue for Hamilton, as he finished second among Broncos receivers Sunday with 33, 66 percent of the team total and one more than Tim Patrick. There will be a lot of discussion in Mile High this week as to whether Drew Lock (thumb) will make his pro debut, but with minimal production with both Joe Flacco and and Brandon Allen under center, it'd be a big ask to expect anything different no matter who starts at quarterback Sunday against the Chargers.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Available Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton (knee) is listed as active Sunday at Minnesota, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports.

After tweaking his knee at practice Thursday, Hamilton capped Week 11 prep with back-to-back listings of limited on the Broncos' injury report. On Friday, he expressed confidence in his ability to suit up to Zac Stevens of the, and he'll do exactly that Sunday. On the season, Hamilton has horrid efficiency marks, boasting a 47.8 percent catch rate, 9.6 YPC and 4.6 YPT on 23 targets through nine games. Moreover, with Tim Patrick back from injured reserve, Hamilton may not be better than third in the pecking order at wide receiver going forward.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

With Bryce Callahan known to be out with a foot injury, Hamilton is just one of three Denver players whose Week 11 status is uncertain. The wideout was at least optimistic about his status when asked about the matter Friday, telling Zac Stevens of he would be good to go for the weekend after tweaking his knee in Thursday's practice. In any event, the second-year player is a speculative fantasy option, given that he's been limited to 11 catches (on 23 targets) for 106 yards in nine games to date this season.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Present for practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton (knee) is practicing Friday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

The Broncos will reveal the extent of Hamilton's participation later Friday, at which point his status for the Week 11 game against the Vikings will also become apparent. The fact that Hamilton was out there Friday after not finishing Thursday's practice bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Hamilton was just added to the Broncos' Week 11 injury report, so it's possible that he tweaked his knee during Thursday's session. Friday's injury report should reveal whether the wideout's injury is a minor concern or something that could affect his status for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Not targeted in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton did not record a target during Sunday's 24-19 win over the Browns.

Hamilton didn't officially log a target, though Brandon Allen did throw his way once in the second quarter on a play that drew a defensive penalty. Still, zero catches in two games without Emmanuel Sanders would have been hard to predict a few weeks ago. Hamilton is WR2 in terms of offensive snaps, ranking second behind Courtland Sutton on Sunday with 32, but Denver has concentrated targets toward Sutton and Noah Fant since Sanders' departure, with 52 percent of the Broncos' targets going to the duo over the past two weeks. What small share Hamilton does have may shrink further after the bye with the impending return of Tim Patrick (hand).

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Catchless without Sanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton was unable to bring in his lone target during Sunday' 15-13 loss in Indianapolis.

The Emmanuel Sanders trade to San Francisco opened up an enormous gap in the passing offense that Hamilton figured to get first dibs filling. It didn't work out that way as Hamilton was held catchless for the third time this season and was even edged out in offensive snaps by Fred Brown, 46 to 45. The Broncos seem as though they will fill the void Sanders left behind by throwing it more to Courtland Sutton and the backs and tight ends, namely rookie Noah Fant. That would place Hamilton as no better than third or fourth in the pecking order in an offense that has looked horrid and will give Brandon Allen the first start of his career Sunday against Cleveland.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Looks like new No. 2 receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton will have an opportunity to climb up the depth chart at receiver following Tuesday's trade that sent Emmanuel Sanders to San Francisco, Cecil Lammey of Sportsradio 104.3 The Fan Denver reports.

Hamilton has struggled to build on the promising conclusion of his rookie campaign, the result of an incomplete rapport with Joe Flacco and an uncharacteristic bout of drops. After averaging one drop every 46 targets in 2018, he's had a drop every 5.5 targets in 2019. Hamilton will get the first crack at the No. 2 receiver job, but Tim Patrick (hand) is set to return from injured reserve in Week 11 and could seize the opportunity if Hamilton fails.

Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Reels in two passes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamilton caught both of his targets for 25 total yards during Sunday's 16-0 win over the Titans.

Once again, the stats don't show much, but Hamilton delivered Sunday, particularly on a 13-yard reception on second down midway through the third quarter in which the Penn State product weaved through the defense to set up the game's only touchdown. Hamilton has not yet formed a rapport with Joe Flacco, but he's still managed to see at least four targets in three of six games this season. Look for a fourth such game if Emmanuel Sanders (knee), who left the game at halftime and did not return, is unable to play Thursday against the Chiefs.
