Denver Broncos News

Trinity Benson, Playing time decreases

Benson caught one of three targets for 24 yards during Monday's 35-17 loss to Detroit.

Analysis: Despite Tyrell Williams (concussion) watching from the sidelines, Benson logged less snaps than he did in Week 1 as Quintez Cephus stole the show amongst Lions wide receivers. However, Benson had a chance to salvage his day with a touchdown on the last drive only for a Packers cornerback to get his hands on the ball at the last second. If Williams remains sidelined in Week 3, Benson could get another realistic chance to produce in a home matchup against Baltimore.

Brandon McManus, Remains perfect in win

McManus connected on all three of his field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: McManus connected from 32, 40, and 46 yards in the contest. Through two weeks, the veteran kicker has been perfect on all field-goal and extra-point attempts. McManus will look to keep the streak going in Week 3 when the Broncos host the Jets.

Albert Okwuegbunam, Catches four passes

Okwuegbunam secured all four of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Through two weeks, Okwuegbunam's involvement in the Denver offense has remained consistent. The 23-year-old played 56 percent of offensive snaps in Week 1 and 54 percent of snaps in Week 2. It appears the Broncos' coaching staff is sticking true to their desire to get the 6-foot-5, 258-pounder more involved in his second year. Even if this is true, Okwuegbunam is hard to trust in fantasy lineups as he will likely be dependent on touchdowns to provide any sort of value. The tight end's best path to production would come if starter Noah Fant ever has to miss time with an injury. Okwuegbunam and the Broncos get a soft matchup against the Jets in Week 3.

Emmanuel Sanders, Second in targets

Sanders hauled in two of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: The production is pretty empty and the misfires show the veteran is still getting his rhythm down with quarterback Josh Allen, but brighter days are certainly ahead for the Sanders in this high-powered offense. While he has a modest 100 yards and has yet to see the end zone through two games, he's also seen 14 targets already. Sanders' 50 snaps Sunday were second on the team behind Stefon Diggs.

K.J. Hamler, Logs one catch

Hamler caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Hamler's disappointing performance Sunday does not reflect a lack of involvement in the team's offense. In fact, the speedy wideout played on 71 percent of the Broncos' snaps in Week 2, which was way up from 36 percent in the season opener. Hamler's increase in playing time was certainly expected with fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy being placed on injured reserve after suffering a high ankle sprain. The 2020 second-round pick was touted throughout training camp as being a versatile weapon for Denver's offense, but that just hasn't translated on Sundays yet. Although he is hard to trust from a fantasy standpoint, Hamler will look to get going in another favorable matchup when the Broncos host the Jets in Week 3.
