Jerry Jeudy Has Made Progress In New Offense

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jerry Jeudy received a three-year, $52.5 million extension from the Browns less than a week after being acquired from the Denver Broncos in a trade this offseason. Jeudy didn't participate in the on-field portion of minicamp due to an undisclosed injury. He may not have been taking on-field reps during offseason practices, but he was at the facilities and has been seen as the receiver who could benefit the most from choice routes in offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey's scheme. Receivers coach Chad O'Shea said Jeudy has "made so much progress learning the offense" despite not getting on the field yet. The former first-rounder was a bust in his four years with Denver and will be the clear No. 2 behind Amari Cooper in Cleveland. He should see plenty of time in the slot and has a chance to bounce back with the Browns, but he's currently being drafted as more of a WR5/6 in fantasy.

Jerry Jeudy To Open The Year In The Slot?

The Athletic's Zac Jackson believes that the Cleveland Browns plan to open the year with new wide receiver Jerry Jeudy in the slot and Amari Cooper and Cedric Tillman out wide. Jeudy also has the ability to play outside, and Elijah Moore will also see snaps both inside and outside. David Bell is likely the No. 5 receiver, and any other player wanting to get into the immediate mix at the position would need a big summer performance and come with special teams ability. Jeudy was held out of spring practices with a minor injury, so he should be ready to go for training camp this summer. The former first-rounder from Alabama has lined up slightly more than half the time so far in his NFL career, but he's been a disappointment to this point and won't have a ton of fantasy upside as long as Cooper stays healthy in 2024. Jeudy should be considered more of a WR4/5 heading into his first year in Cleveland.

Jerry Jeudy Sitting With Minor Injury

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (undisclosed) is sitting out of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday with a minor undisclosed injury. Jeudy's injury doesn't appear to be serious at all, but the Browns aren't going to push their new receiver this offseason. The 25-year-old should be ready to rock for training camp at the end of July, but meanwhile, he's missing valuable repetitions with quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) as he learns a new offense. Jeudy signed a lucrative three-year extension with Cleveland after being acquired in a trade with the Denver Broncos this offseason. The former 15th overall pick by Denver in 2020 out of Alabama has yet to play a full season in four years in the NFL and should be viewed as more of a WR4/5 with a low ceiling and floor in fantasy heading into his first campaign with the Jets behind Amari Cooper.

Jerry Jeudy Agrees To Three-Year Extension With Browns

The Cleveland Browns are signing wide receiver Jerry Jeudy to a three-year contract extension worth up to $58 million. The deal includes $41 million guaranteed. The organization sent 2024 fifth and sixth-round picks to acquire Jeudy from the Denver Broncos last week, and they wasted no time offering him a new deal. Jeudy, a former first-round pick in 2020, has hauled in 211 passes for 3,053 yards and 11 touchdowns through his first 57 NFL games. He has failed to reach 900 yards in three of his first four seasons. Cleveland appears to be high on him and his chances to reignite his career with new surroundings. He is slated to start alongside Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore in three-wide sets.

Browns Restructure Jerry Jeudy's Contract

The Cleveland Browns restructured the contract of newly acquired wide receiver Jerry Jeudy on Friday to create more than $10 million in 2024 salary cap space. Jeudy is entering the fifth-year option season on his rookie deal and hasn't reached any kind of extension with the Browns since being acquired from the Denver Broncos last weekend, so the restructure likely adds void years to his deal. The 24-year-old former first-rounder from Alabama didn't live up to expectations in Denver in his four years with the team, accumulating 211 catches for 3,053 yards and 11 touchdowns in 57 games (44 starts). He's now set to serve as the No. 2 wideout in Cleveland behind Amari Cooper while taking passes from quarterback Deshaun Watson. Perhaps the change of scenery will do him well, but he'll also be battling for targets with slot man Elijah Moore.

Browns Trade For Jerry Jeudy

The Cleveland Browns are sending a 2024 fifth-pick and 2024 sixth-round pick in exchange for Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Cleveland reportedly tried to trade for the former first-rounder at the trade deadline during the 2023 campaign, so they now get their target. After posting 972 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2022, Jeudy regressed to 758 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 2023. He now gets a change of scenery and a chance to turn his career around. Given the struggles of quarterback Deshaun Watson, it's tough to get too excited about Jeudy's fantasy prospects, especially while sharing a field with Amari Cooper. David Njoku and Elijah Moore round out the crowded pass-catcher group. This move could mean a small boost for Watson's fantasy outlook, but it's tough to see a path toward top-24 upside for Jeudy.

Jerry Jeudy Saves His Best For Last

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy had his best game of the year in a meaningless 27-14 Week 18 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Although Jeudy only hauled in three of his six targets on the day, he went for 79 yards and caught just his second touchdown of the year on a 24-yard strike from quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Jeudy's six targets were second to only running back Javonte Williams' nine, and Jeudy surprisingly was very productive despite Courtland Sutton returning from a concussion to close out the year. Overall, it was a disappointing year for the former first-rounder, finishing with 54 catches on 86 targets for 758 yards in 16 games. With the Broncos expected to transition away from quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason, Jeudy's best path to more fantasy intrigue in 2024 could be a trade out of Denver.

Jerry Jeudy Unlikely To Finish On A High Note

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was a distant No. 2 receiver behind Courtland Sutton all year and wasn't able to do anything significant (three catches for 54 yards) in the Week 17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers with Sutton out due to a concussion. The former first-rounder has just one touchdown all season long and has been outside the top-50 receivers this year in half-PPR points per game despite ranking 48th at the position with 81 targets. In the Week 18 regular season finale against the Las Vegas Raiders with Sutton returning from his concussion, it's unlikely that Jeudy suddenly breaks out in the final game of the year with quarterback Jarrett Stidham running the offense. Fantasy managers looking for upside in DFS and season-long contests in Week 18 should ignore Jeudy.

Jerry Jeudy Manages 54 Yards In Week 17

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was expected to do some damage given how shorthanded this roster is at wideout. However, Jeudy was held in check throughout most of this game by the shaky Los Angeles Chargers defense. He hauled in three of his five targets for 54 yards in the win. To be fair, Jeudy did have backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham under center, but he didn't play too bad on Sunday. This has been a disappointing season for Jeudy and that will likely continue in Week 18. Fantasy managers might be able to use Jeudy has a flex option, but don't count on him for the regular season finale versus the Las Vegas Raiders.

Jerry Jeudy Suiting Up Versus Chargers

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (illness) is officially active for Week 17 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He had been listed as questionable but will suit up, which is good news for the Broncos given that both Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) are inactive. With Denver shorthanded at wide receiver, Jeudy has a chance to lead the team in targets this week. However, his upside is limited with Jarrett Stidham taking over at quarterback. Managers should view Jeudy as a high-end WR4 option this week.

Dec 31, 2023 3:23 PM EST


Jerry Jeudy Should Be Good To Go On Sunday

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (illness) is anticipated to suit up on Sunday against the Chargers. The wideout appeared on the injury report because of an illness. However, it appears he's feeling better, so he should be good to go in Week 17, barring a setback. Jeudy hasn't had the breakout year most had envisioned entering the 2023-24 campaign. He has just 48 catches. Even worse, he's only found the end zone once. However, with Courtland Sutton (concussion) out versus Los Angeles, Jeudy should be the No. 1 receiver. But Jarrett Stidham will be under center, so Jeudy is hard to trust from a fantasy standpoint.

Jerry Jeudy Listed As Questionable For Week 17

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (illness) is listed as questionable heading into the Week 17 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. Jeudy popped up on the injury report on Friday with an illness. The severity of the issue is unknown, so the Broncos are likely going to take this as day-to-day. That means, Jeudy could very well end up as a game-time decision for this weekend. Honestly, Jeudy isn't going to have great fantasy value anyway especially with Russell Wilson likely headed to the bench. Jeudy will be a possible WR4 in PPR formats for this game.

Jerry Jeudy Sees Five Targets In Week 16

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy hauled in three of his five targets for 44 yards in the team's 26-23 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Jeudy was poised for a big outing when No. 1 wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) left the game in the first half and did not return, but saw limited production. The former Alabama wideout has not been a strong fantasy option this season, eclipsing 80 total yards just once this year with only one touchdown on the season. Jeudy's fantasy status could be elevated if Sutton misses the team's Week 17 matchup against the Chargers, but he remains a boom-or-bust option with an unreliable floor.

Jerry Jeudy Looks To Carry Over Week 15 Success Against New England

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who is coming off a three-catch 74-yard performance in Week 15, checks in a low-end WR3 in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. The 74-yard "explosion" from Jeudy was his highest yardage total since Week 3 when he totaled 81 yards against the Miami Dolphins. However, there just simply isn't enough volume in the Denver passing attack to make Jeudy anything more than a WR3 on Sunday Night Football. He's never seen more than seven targets in any game this season and teammate Courtland Sutton is quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite red zone target. Jeudy is nothing more than a dart-throw FLEX play in the fantasy playoffs.

Jerry Jeudy Leads Broncos In Receiving In Week 15

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy wasn't all that efficient in the 42-17 blowout loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 15 on Saturday, but he was still able to have one of his most productive games of the year, catching three of his seven targets for a team-high 74 yards. It was the 24-year-old's highest yardage total since Week 3 and it comes a week after he had just two catches for 16 yards in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. It was also nice to see Jeudy lead the Broncos with his seven targets, which was also a season-high. Despite the nice performance in this one, Jeudy still has only found the end zone once in 13 games this year and is going to continue being a low-upside WR4/flex in deeper fantasy leagues heading into a Week 16 clash against the New England Patriots on Christmas Eve next Sunday night.

Dec 17, 2023 1:26 PM EST


Jerry Jeudy Still A Shaky Flex Play In Favorable Matchup

It's now or never for Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. The 24-year-old former first-rounder has had a dud of a season to this point with 42 receptions on 63 targets for 507 yards and only one touchdown in 12 games. He's also coming off a two-catch, 16-yard performance in the Week 14 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Jeudy hasn't been a top-50 fantasy wideout this year, although he does have an excellent matchup on Saturday evening against a Detroit Lions defense that has surrendered the fourth-most half-PPR points per game (35.9) to the position in the last five weeks by giving up 65 catches for 899 yards and eight touchdowns. He's going to need to be much more efficient with the limited looks he gets than he's been all year, though, which still makes him a risky WR4/flex in deeper fantasy leagues.

Jerry Jeudy's Week 14 Marred By Missed Opportunities

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy's Week 14 performance will mainly be remembered by what could have been. Jeudy couldn't get his second foot in bounds on a would-be touchdown pass from quarterback Russell Wilson in the second half, and he also had a ball go through his hands on a pass attempt deep down the field. All in all, the 24-year-old first-rounder finished with one of his worst games in what has been a frustrating season in the 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Chargers by catching two of a team-high six targets for an uninspiring 16 yards. Jeudy still has only one touchdown reception in 2023 and now has 16 or fewer receiving yards in two of the last three games. It's been all about Courtland Sutton and not Jeudy in Denver's passing game this year, making him a hard-to-sell WR4/flex going forward.

Dec 11, 2023 12:24 AM EST


Jerry Jeudy Has Upside As WR4/Flex In Week 14

We wouldn't blame anyone for not considering Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy as a flex option the rest of the way in 2023. After all, he's faded into the background in Denver's passing game behind Courtland Sutton and his career-high nine touchdowns this year. Jeudy has reached 50 receiving yards seven times in 11 games, but he has just 491 receiving yards and one touchdown to show for it. With that said, the 24-year-old could pay off as a deep-league WR4/flex in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Bolts defense is vulnerable through the air and have allowed the third-most half-PPR points per game (33.2) to the position, including 13 total touchdowns, which ties for fifth-most in the NFL. The former first-rounder could pay off for fantasy managers that take a chance on him if he can connect on a few deep hookups with quarterback Russell Wilson in this one.

Dec 9, 2023 2:00 PM EST


Jerry Jeudy Has Yet Another Mediocre Stat Line

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy reached 50 receiving yards for the seventh time in 11 games in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Houston Texans. However, he caught only three passes on four targets for 51 yards and did not find the end zone. The 24-year-old did have a nice 41-yard catch in which he was forced down just before reaching paydirt for what would have been only his second touchdown of 2023. Jeudy's three catches tied for the team-high in Week 13 in a contest in which quarterback Russell Wilson only chucked the ball 26 times. Jeudy has been underwhelmingly consistent and will continue to have a low ceiling for fantasy managers if teammate Courtland Sutton keeps taking away all of the scoring chances for the Broncos through the air.

Jerry Jeudy A Low-Upside WR4/Flex Against Houston

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (groin) was on this week's injury report with a groin injury but practiced in full on Friday and will play on Sunday. He will be hoping to finally make some noise in Week 13 on the road against the Houston Texans. He's coming off his worst performance of the year, catching two of his three targets for 11 yards in the win over the Cleveland Browns. The Broncos could have some success through the air this Sunday against Houston, but Jeudy has found the end zone only once in 2023 and is a distant No. 2 to Courtland Sutton. On top of it, the Texans secondary has allowed just six touchdowns to wideouts all year. The lone reason for optimism from Jeudy as a WR4/flex option in deeper fantasy leagues is the fact that he has seen at least five targets in all but two games this year and has reached 50 receiving yards in six of 10 games.
