Broncos' Matt LaCosse: Nursing shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaCosse was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice due to a shoulder injury, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Despite seeing the overwhelming share of snaps at tight end the last two weeks after Jeff Heuerman (ribs/lung) was moved to injured reserve, LaCosse has only drawn two targets, hauling in one for a three-yard gain. LaCosse's ability to take part in the Broncos' first session of the week suggests the shoulder issue shouldn't prevent him from suiting up Saturday against the Browns, but his minimal production to date renders him little more than a dart throw for fantasy purposes.

Broncos' Matt LaCosse: Logs 80 percent snap share
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaCosse played 80 percent of the snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

You wouldn't know it from his one-target, zero-catch stat line, but LaCosse did actually take on a much larger role in the first game after Jeff Heuerman (ribs) suffered a season-ending injury. The added playing time could translate to pass-catching production in matchups that force the Broncos to throw more often, but the team can probably get by with another run-heavy game plan Week 14 in San Francisco. LaCosse has been efficient with his limited opportunities this season, catching 14 of 22 targets for 171 yards and a touchdown.

Broncos' Matt LaCosse: Set for larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaCosse is primed for a larger role with Jeff Heuerman (ribs/lung) expected to miss the rest of the season, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

LaCosse already took advantage during Sunday's 24-17 win over Pittsburgh, hauling in three of four targets for 34 yards and the first touchdown of his career. While his questionable blocking may prevent him from stepping into a three-down role, LaCosse has been much more efficient than Heuerman in the passing game, producing 12.2 yards per catch and 8.1 per target, with one reception for every 12.9 snaps. There's some potential for LaCosse to emerge as a real fantasy asset, but only if Brian Parker doesn't absorb a large share of the vacated snaps. It'll be something to keep an eye on Week 13 in Cincinnati.

Broncos' Matt LaCosse: Helps spark rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaCosse caught one of two targets for nine yards during Sunday's 23-22 win over the Chargers.

It was another modest game for LaCosse, who has just been held to a single catch in four of his last five games, but it was big. With the Broncos facing second-and-16 in the closing seconds, a quick completion to LaCosse made it third-and-manageable, and Case Keenum and Courtland Sutton delivered from there. Next up is a stingy Steelers pass defense giving up just 227 yards per game.

Broncos' Matt LaCosse: Picks up big gain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaCosse nabbed a 44-yard pass during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Houston

LaCosse set up Denver's first touchdown of the game in the second quarter when he slipped out on a corner route and sprinted up the sideline for a 44-yard gain. LaCosse has been held to just a single target in two of his last three games, but he's worth watching following the bye. Denver doesn't have much experience at receiver following the departure of Demaryius Thomas. More two-tight-end sets might make sense, especially given the success they had throwing to Jeff Heuerman and LaCosse against Houston. A middle-of-the-pack Chargers defense awaits in Week 11.
