Tim Patrick, WR , Denver Broncos
Patrick had four catches for 39 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the New York Giants. But the bigger impact happened outside of him, as Broncos’ wide receiver Jerry Jeudy apparently escaped what looked far worse with only a high ankle sprain. Jeudy had six receptions for 72 yards before being injured.
Jeudy is in line to miss some time, and Patrick is in line for a bigger role while he’s out. From Week 2-Week 6, if we tab Jeudy’s absence at something like 4-6 weeks, favorable matchups are on the slate against the Jacksonville Jaguars (Week 2), New York Jets (Week 3) and Las Vegas Raiders (Week 6).
Patrick had 51 catches and six touchdowns last year, on his way to a finish in WR4 range regardless of scoring format. While Jeudy is out, with timeline TBD, he’s a worthy WR3/WR4 in leagues with 12 or more teams.
