News: 6 days agoCoach Nathaniel Hackett indicated Friday that he believes Hamler is on track in his recovery from the season-ending ACL he suffered in Week 3 of the 2021 season, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Spin: Hamler has been practicing -- though not quite yet at full speed in 11-on-11 drills -- and barring any setbacks, it looks like he'll be ready for the Broncos' season opener. The 2020 second-rounder had until recently been expected to begin the coming campaign working behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick (knee). However, with Patrick having been placed on season-ending IR this week, Hamler's profile in the team's offense is expected to increase, with his ability to stretch the field potentially meshing well with new franchise QB Russell Wilson's approach and skill set.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hamler is entering his third NFL season after his 2021 campaign was derailed by a torn ACL suffered in Week 3. The 2020 second-round pick had produced 74 yards on 10 targets prior to the injury. Hamler made some noise as a rookie (30-381-3 receiving line), but his efficiency was very poor; he ranked near the basement in catch rate (53%), YPT (6.7), YPRR (1.2) and drop rate (8.8%). Hamler is a small (5-foot-9, 178 pounds) and fast slot WR who has competition for targets with Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy ahead of him on the depth chart. The arrival of Russell Wilson helps his cause, but Hamler has a tough path to consistent fantasy value. Consider the 23-year-old in the later rounds.
