|One of the league leaders in unrealized air yards as a rookie, Jerry Jeudy was unable to get into a consistent rhythm with quarterback Drew Lock in 2020. Unfortunately he'll likely have to deal with some truly bad quarterback play again as the Broncos opted to pass on quarterback in the draft, instead turning to a competition between the disappointing Lock and veteran Teddy Bridgewater.
It's worth noting that Jeudy didn't help his quarterbacks at times, as he was also one of the league leaders in dropped passes, but he was overall quite good on a per-snap basis. His route running appeared to be excellent and he finished the season with 856 yards on 52 catches. Jeudy will now be joined by 2019 rookie Courtland Sutton, who missed almost the entire 2020 season with a torn ACL and MCL, which should allow Jeudy to see less attention from the defense, even if it will likely also mean fewer total targets for him.
Unlike Sutton who could see a serious downgrade in efficiency if Bridgewater becomes the starter, Jeudy is the kind of receiver who could make things happen regardless of which quarterback is throwing him the ball. He's a tactician as a route runner while still having the ability to make plenty of plays down the field. That, along Sutton's rehabilitated knee, makes Jeudy the safer of the two starting Broncos receivers, even if he doesn't have quite the upside this season that Sutton could.

Broncos suffering losses at WR

FFToday's Take: The Broncos are already missing Jerry Jeudy (multiple weeks) and now must rely on Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick as their top two wideouts. Tight ends Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam could see their usage increase in the short term.

FFToday's Take: Jeudy was taken to the locker room on a cart but it appears he escaped a season-ending injury. He posted a 6-72 line on 7 targets before exiting. He'll likely miss multiple weeks. Expect Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler to pick up the slack.
