2021 Fantasy Outlook
After a 15-target Week 16 last year in which Jeudy had only six catches and several egregious drops, he exploded for 7-5-140-1 in Week 17, including a spectacular 92-yard catch-and-run TD, showing why he was the second wide receiver taken in the 2020 draft. All told, Jeudy had 13 drops, one of the highest totals in recent memory (though mercifully eclipsed by Diontae Johnson's 15) and pedestrian per-play output (7.6 YPC). On the bright side, he showed he could stretch the field with 16.5 YPC (2nd) and four catches for 40-plus yards on only 113 targets. At 6-1, 193, and running a 4.45 40, Jeudy is a smooth route runner, unusually polished for his age. And he seems to play faster in pads. The problems for Jeudy, aside from the drops, are poor QB play and competition for targets. Teddy Bridgewater will be the Week 1 starter, with Drew Lock available in reserve. Courtland Sutton, a rising star in his own right, should be back from a torn ACL, while Tim Patrick, the biggest and most efficient Broncos receiver from a year ago, is still around after signing a second-round tender. KJ Hamler, a 2020 second-round pick, will also get a shot, and 2019 first-rounder Noah Fant is developing as one of the league's top pass-catching TEs. Jeudy has the talent and pedigree to emerge as the No. 1, but he's a long shot to be among the league leaders in targets. Read Past Outlooks

September 14, 2021
Jeudy (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
ANALYSIS
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos are expecting Jeudy to miss 4-to-6 weeks after he suffered a right high-ankle sprain in Sunday's victory over the Giants. That timeline makes it unlikely that he'll be ready to go when first eligible to come off IR on Oct. 10 in Pittsburgh, but a return in Week 6 versus the Raiders could be in play for the second-year wideout. In the meantime, the Broncos are expected to turn to KJ Hamler to fill out three-receiver sets alongside Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, and all three pass catchers should benefit from added looks while Jeudy is sidelined.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
In a rookie class loaded with talented receivers, Jeudy stands out as perhaps the best. He had 24 touchdown catches the last two seasons and averaged 12.6 and 10.6 YPT in 2018 and 2019, respectively, at Alabama. At 6-1, 193, he has only average size but good speed (4.45 40) and uncanny quickness and burst. He's a smooth route runner with a knack for getting open, good hands and excellent vision while running after the catch. He's a rare combo of raw athletic talent, football intelligence and polish. Landing in Denver with the 15th overall pick, Jeudy should start as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Courtland Sutton, with second-round selection KJ Hamler like serving as the No. 3. Second-year quarterback Drew Lock will have to improve, but if he does, there should be enough to go around for the team's top two targets and either Hamler or last year's first-rounder, tight end Noah Fant.
