Jeudy is a candidate for a breakout season in Denver, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic.
Jeudy enters his second year with the Broncos with high expectations based on his rookie campaign. Despite dealing with a nagging ankle injury at times last season and playing with three different starting quarterbacks, Jeudy amassed 856 receiving yards in 2020. Looking ahead, the return of fellow wideout Courtland Sutton from an ACL injury should open up even more opportunities for Jeudy in the middle of the field, where his impressive skills as a route runner can shine. Though the Broncos still need to decide who will be delivering the ball to Jeudy and Co. in 2021, a noticeable step forward in production for the 22-year-old receiver is a plausible outcome.

Jeudy sat out practice Tuesday due to a stomach bug, but he displayed no ill effects when he returned to the field Wednesday. While Denver has yet to name a starting quarterback heading into Week 1, Jeudy and Courtland Sutton (knee) should give either Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater a dangerous wideout duo to work with.

Jeudy's issue doesn't seem like a long-term concern, but it could prevent him from taking the field for some valuable minicamp time. Even if he does miss a couple days, Jeudy should be ready for the start of training camp as he gears up for his sophomore NFL campaign. He finished his rookie campaign with 52 catches for 856 yards and three touchdowns over 16 games, and a relatively normal offseason in 2021 should improve his odds of taking a step forward in his second season.
Jeudy hauled in 52 of 113 targets for 856 yards and three touchdowns while playing in all 16 games during the 2020 season.
The first-round rookie arrived in Denver as a skilled route runner who was expected to make a splash in the NFL right away, and while his production was solid enough, the 21-year-old didn't quite dominate on the level some might have anticipated. Spotty quarterback play and Jeudy's own issues with drops -- his 8.8 percent drop rate was the 12th-highest in the NFL -- contributed to the wideout logging a league-low 52 receptions among all players who were targeted 100-plus times. Expect a rebound in 2021, as Jeudy will get his first full NFL offseason and the return of Courtland Sutton (ACL), who should take some of the pressure off the Alabama product.
Jeudy caught five of seven targets for 140 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-31 loss to the Raiders. He also caught a two-point conversion.
The rookie finally flashed the talent that made him the 15th overall pick in the 2020 draft, and his sensational 92-yard catch-and-run for a TD in the fourth quarter looked like it might prove to be the winning score before the Raiders struck back in the final minute. Jeudy finished an up-and-down season with a 52-856-3 line on 113 targets, but he didn't miss a game and could be poised to take a big step forward in Year 2, particularly if the Broncos find an upgrade over Drew Lock under center.
Jeudy caught six of 15 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Chargers.
The rookie receiver struggled with drops all afternoon, including one in the end zone in the third quarter that proved to be crucial in a game decided by a field goal. The 15 targets were a season high for Jeudy, but it wasn't enough to snap him out of his prolonged slump -- over his last seven games, he has only a 17-232-0 line despite a whopping 45 targets. Jeudy will try to close out his first NFL campaign on a high note in Week 17 against the Raiders.
Jeudy secured one of five targets for 19 yards during Saturday's 48-19 loss to Buffalo.
Despite being drafted as the second receiver in the 2020 NFL draft class at the No. 15 overall, Jeudy's 40 receptions ranked just ninth among rookies entering Week 15. Drew Lock and the receiving corps weren't able to get on the same page against the Bills, as Denver wideouts remained without a catch until the 0:29 mark of the second quarter. The Alabama product has been particularly cold down the stretch, with a total of four receptions for 66 yards over his past four games combined. A Week 16 matchup against the Chargers' 10th-ranked pass defense provides more reason to stray away from Jeudy in fantasy lineups, but he did post his second-highest receiving output of the season (73 yards) against Los Angeles in Week 8.

Jeudy has been managing an ankle issue of late and was listed as limited on Tuesday's report, but he's now slated to play Saturday against the Bills. He'll be looking to build off a two-catch, 42-yard effort (on four targets) in Denver's Week 14 win over the Panthers. Prior to that, Jeudy had been limited to just one catch combined in Weeks 12 and 13.

Jeudy has been battling an ankle issue for most of the past month, with his production suffering as a result. In four games with the injury in tow, he's managed just six catches (on 17 targets) for 84 yards and no scores. Due to the inefficient use of his looks, it's difficult to trust Jeudy at the moment, especially with a tough matchup Saturday versus the Bills.
Jeudy caught two of four targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 32-27 win against the Panthers.
The first-round rookie contributed a 31-yard gain late in the second quarter Sunday, but otherwise, it was a fourth consecutive quiet outing from Jeudy. The Alabama product has gone scoreless in five consecutive appearances while also failing to exceed 45 yards over any of his past four games. Jeudy hasn't been commanding the requisite volume of a receiver drafted in the top 15, posting eight targets Weeks 13 and 14 combined with Drew Lock in the lineup. That doesn't include a no-catch, one-target Week 12 showing when practice squad WR Kendall Hinton was pressed into starting at quarterback against the Saints. An upcoming Saturday matchup against All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White and the Bills does little to spark optimism.

This ankle injury held him back over the last two weeks, as he caught just one pass for five yards in that stretch. Following back-to-back full practices to close out the week, Jeudy has officially been cleared for Week 14 and will look to put those woes behind him. Through 12 games, the rookie first-rounder leads the Broncos with 82 targets and sits second to Tim Patrick with 594 receiving yards.
Coach Vic Fangio relayed that Jeudy (ankle) is slated to practice fully Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Jeudy has approached Denver's last two games listed as questionable, but his full participation Thursday indicates that the rookie wideout is distancing himself from the ankle issue that may have contributed to the consecutive fantasy duds he posted in Weeks 12 and 13. The No. 15 overall pick in the 2020 draft thus will look to engineer a bounce-back effort Sunday against the Panthers.

Jeudy is coming off back-to-back quiet efforts, including a one-catch, five-yard performance in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. In that context, rolling with Jeudy in Week 14 fantasy lineups carries some risk, though coach Vic Fangio believes the wideout is "in a good spot" health-wise as this weekend's game against the Panthers approaches, according to Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site.
Jeudy (ankle) had just one reception (four targets) for five yards in Sunday's 22-16 loss to Kansas City.
Jeudy turned in his worst performance of the season with an actual professional quarterback under center, so it wouldn't be surprising to find out that he was limited by the ankle that had been bothering him leading up to Sunday's contest. Tim Patrick shined in the national spotlight (four catches, 44 yards and two touchdowns), but Jeudy has been the more effective receiver over the course of the year with 101.0 air yards per game and 4.3 yards after the catch. If the rookie can get fully healthy prior to Week 14's matchup against Carolina, we could see a solid statistical output with Drew Lock now fully back and a soft matchup on deck.

As is running back Phillip Lindsay (knee). It remains to be seen if Jeudy ends up limited at all Sunday, but assuming no in-game setbacks, the wideout's Week 13 fantasy outlook is bolstered by the fact that top signal-caller Drew Lock is back in action. Last weekend, the team's passing game was thwarted by a series of events that led to practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton being pressed into action as the team's QB in a 31-3 loss to the Saints. In the process, Jeudy was targeted just once and didn't record a catch.

The same applies to running back Phillip Lindsay (knee). While the duo's Week 13 status won't be confirmed until the Broncos' inactives are posted prior to Sunday night's 8:20 ET kickoff, it's worth noting that both players were listed as full participants in Friday's practice. Assuming Jeudy does suit up, it remains to be seen if he'll be at full strength, with Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site relaying that coach Vic Fangio noted Friday that if Jeudy and Lindsay are able to play Sunday, it's possible they could be somewhat limited. "Not limited tremendously, but yeah, obviously if their injury starts aggravating them a little bit they could be (limited), yes," Fangio acknowledged.

After logging time in every practice this week, Jeudy is trending in the right direction toward an appearance this weekend. Earlier Friday, coach Vic Fangio told Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com that he expects Jeudy to suit up Sunday, and he "won't be limited much" if he does, per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com. Jeudy has earned at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps and as much as 89 percent in each of the first 11 games of his career, but his output has been a bit sporadic.

This marks Jeudy's third consecutive session after being listed as limited Wednesday and Thursday. It'll be interesting to see if he elevates to a full practice to cap Week 13 prep, but no matter what he's able to do the Broncos will clarify later Friday whether he's questionable or doesn't have a designation at all for Sunday's game at Kansas City.
Jeudy (ankle) will remain limited at practice Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Back-to-back limited sessions set the stage for Friday's injury report to clarify whether the wideout approaches Sunday night's game against the Chiefs listed as questionable or free from a Week 13 injury designation altogether. Eleven games into his rookie campaign, Jeudy's 37 catches (on 78 targets) have yielded a team-high 589 receiving yards and two TDs.

Jeudy was also limited last Friday, but he was able to suit up in Sunday's loss to the Saints. He didn't record a catch in the game, but that was mostly a byproduct of the Broncos running an extreme run-heavy offense while practice squad wideout Kendall Hinton was pressed into starting duties at quarterback. With Drew Lock in line to return under center Week 13 versus the Chiefs, Jeudy's fantasy prospects are looking up, assuming his ankle issue doesn't prevent him from playing in the divisional game.
