News: 15 hours agoHamler (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Spin: Hamler is set to return to the field for the first time since Week 4, when he aggravated a hamstring injury that had first cropped up back in training camp. The rookie second-round pick stands to be in the mix as Denver's third wide receiver behind Tim Patrick and Jerry Jeudy.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Denver nabbed Hamler with the 46th pick of April's draft. The Penn State product is an explosive but extremely undersized (5-foot-9, 178 pounds) receiver who has drawn Tavon Austin comps due to his small frame, terrific speed and versatility. Hamler's hands are an issue (nine drops last season), and his size will surely limit his scoring opportunities and perhaps his fantasy upside. He figures to be busy as a slot weapon (89% slot last season), returner (81 combined kick and punt returns at PSU) and rusher (13 carries in 2019) in Denver. He'll be the favorite for a substantial Week 1 role, but the presences of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant, Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay leave Hamler unlikely to find his way to consistent rookie-season fantasy value. He's worth a late pick only in deep PPR leagues.
