Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) missed the first game of his career in last week's win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but he returned to full practice this week and will suit up for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. With both Mims and Courtland Sutton (concussion) out last week, Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught two passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. Denver has nothing to play for on Sunday, so expect Mims and other young players to get more run against the division-rival Raiders. It doesn't mean the 21-year-old will be a worthwhile low-cost DFS play, though, especially with quarterback Jarrett Stidham making another start. In his first 15 NFL games, Mims has produced just 21 receptions on 32 targets for 361 yards and one touchdown.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring), who had been listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday, is officially inactive for Week 17 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. The 21-year-old has accrued 21 catches, 361 yards, and one touchdown while also playing a key role on special teams over the course of 15 games in his rookie campaign. Denver finds itself shorthanded at wide receiver with Mims and Courtland Sutton (concussion) sidelined, leaving Jerry Jeudy as Denver's top receiver for this divisional clash.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) isn't expected to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. The rookie has 361 yards and a touchdown off 21 receptions this season, making him the third-most productive wideout for Denver. With Courtland Sutton (concussion) out in Week 17, Mims could have gotten more involved. However, now that Mims is out of the equation, Jerry Jeudy (illness), who is expected to play, should see even more attention. There's also room for guys like Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Brandon Johnson, and Adam Trautman to receive extra targets. But with Jarrett Stidham under center, nobody on the offensive side of the ball can be trusted to be a viable source of fantasy production.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) is currently considered as questionable for the upcoming Week 17 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. The rookie wideout popped up on the injury report on Thursday. Mims was a limited participant on Thursday, but didn't practice at all on Friday. Given the Broncos current situation, it wouldn't be shocking to see them sit Mims if he's not 100 percent healthy. The fantasy value for this offense has dropped quite a bit with Jarrett Stidham expected to be under center. It's probably best to avoid Mims even if he's active for this game.

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) was added to the Week 17 injury report on Thursday following his limited practice. It remains to be seen if Mims' downgrade in practice status is an actual injury that could keep him from playing this Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers or if it's something more minor and he was just being rested on Thursday. We should know more on the 21-year-old's status on Friday. If he plays, Mims could be in line for a bigger role if Courtland Sutton is unable to clear the league's concussion protocol. Even if Sutton is inactive and Mims is active, the young speed pass-catcher should be avoided in starting fantasy lineups in Week 17 with quarterback Jarrett Stidham now running the Broncos' offense.

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. could very well get behind the Detroit Lions secondary for a big play in Week 15's Saturday night showdown, but it's also pretty unlikely. Mims has mainly been a special-teams standout as a kick returner in his first NFL season. On the offensive side, he made most of his noise in 2023 early in the year and has totaled only 18 catches for 298 yards and one touchdown on 26 targets over 13 games. The 21-year-old speedster saw a brief uptick in involvement following the Week 9 bye, but he was back down to 37% of the offensive snaps played last week and hasn't caught more than two passes or exceeded 47 receiving yards in a game since the team's 50-point blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. Even though the Lions D is one of the better matchups for receivers, Mims doesn't belong in starting fantasy lineups in Week 15.

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ribs) was on the team's injury report again this week but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and has been cleared to play in Week 14 against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Even in a great matchup against the Chargers' shaky secondary this weekend, Mims cannot be trusted in starting fantasy lineups. The 21-year-old speedy deep threat is well behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy in terms of snaps played on offense and hasn't had more than two receptions in a game since Week 3. Mims just hasn't been involved enough in the game plan and has 16 receptions on 23 targets for 287 yards and one touchdown in his first 12 NFL games in 2023. Since the Week 9 bye, he has five receptions for 41 yards on nine targets, adding three carries for an additional 16 yards.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ribs) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. An injury to Mims' ribs limited his practice reps during Wednesday's session, but a return to full activity on Thursday firmly puts him on course to be active for Week 14's home contest versus the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. A three-game stretch with 233 receiving yards and a touchdown from Weeks 2 through 4 seem like a distant memory at this point for the 21-year-old second-round rookie, who has managed just 45 scoreless yards over the subsequent eight outings dating back to Week 5. Assuming he is available for Sunday's action, Mims would line up to take on his normal complementary role as a situational deep threat for quarterback Russell Wilson behind top targets Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.
Dec 8, 2023 12:54 AM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ribs) was limited by a rib injury on Wednesday as his team began preparing to take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14. Mims dealt with a hamstring injury leading up to last week's game but his injury status now shows a rib injury as what is ailing him. Mims will have chances on Thursday and Friday to get upgraded to a full practice. Stay tuned.
Dec 6, 2023 9:31 PM EST
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) was on this week's injury report but was removed after putting in a full practice on Friday. Mims will be active in Week 13 against the Houston Texans, but he shouldn't be in starting fantasy lineups. The 21-year-old has dabbled on offense in his first NFL season, but he's been more valuable to Denver as a return man on special teams. Mims has a grand total of only 15 catches on 21 targets for 282 yards and one touchdown in 11 games this year. He's played over 50 percent of the offensive snaps in a game just twice. Mims is always a threat to make a big play down the field given his speed, but he just hasn't been involved enough on offense to make him a realistic fantasy weapon.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. was limited with a hamstring injury on Wednesday. Mims will now have chances on Thursday and Friday to get in a full practice as his team gears up to face off against the Houston Texans in Week 13. That being said, Mims has not been a major piece of the Denver offense in what has been his rookie season.
Nov 29, 2023 8:50 PM EST
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. has been on the field much more in the last two weeks, but it has amounted to only two receptions on four targets for 12 yards. During Denver's four-game winning streak, Mims has three catches on six targets for 12 yards and he has had more than two receptions in a game just once all year -- back in Week 3 when he had three in the 70-20 loss to the Dolphins. While the 21-year-old has impressive speed and big-play abilities, he's mostly been a factor for Denver on special teams as a returner and not as a pass-catcher in his first year in the NFL. He's always a threat to make a big play down the field, but he's not worth a starting spot in fantasy lineups, especially in Week 12 against the best defense in the league in the Cleveland Browns.

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ankle) was on this week's injury report but will be fine to play on Sunday night versus the Minnesota Vikings after practicing in full on Thursday and Friday. The Broncos discussed the possibility of getting Mims on the field more on offense during their Week 9 bye, and he played a season-high 69% of the offensive snaps in the Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills. However, that translated to no catches on one target. The speedy 21-year-old deep threat made some noise down the field early on in 2023 and is fourth on the Broncos with 246 receiving yards, but he has no business in starting fantasy lineups despite a good matchup in Week 11 against the Vikings secondary. Mims hasn't caught more than two passes in a game since Week 4 and has two receptions for four yards in the last five contests.
Nov 18, 2023 1:43 PM EST
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday but upgraded to full participation for Thursday's session, putting him on the right track to be available to play on Sunday night in a showdown against the visiting Minnesota Vikings. Fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy (hip) was added to the injury report on Thursday, so Mims could be looking at his highest snap percentage in Week 11 if Jeudy is ultimately out or limited in any way. Mims played a season-high 69% of the offensive snaps coming out of the bye in the Week 10 win against the Buffalo Bills, although it only led to one target. The 21-year-old hasn't had more than one target in a game since Week 4 and has two receptions for four yards in the last five games. At best, he'd be a deep-league flex dart throw for his big-play abilities.
Nov 16, 2023 11:17 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday with an ankle issue. While the rookie wideout was dynamic in the return game in the Broncos' Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football, he's seen just four targets over the last five weeks on offense. Even if he can get in a full practice before the Week 11 contest against the Minnesota Vikings, the rookie receiver has zero fantasy value until further notice.
Nov 15, 2023 6:59 PM EST
The Denver Broncos were reportedly looking at ways to get speedy deep-threat rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. more involved in their offense during their bye last week. Mims is third on the team in receiving yards with 246, but he hasn't played more than 39 percent of the offensive snaps in a single game and has just two catches on three targets for four yards in the last four games. The 21-year-old big-play threat could have some deep-league flex appeal if he becomes more involved, but fantasy managers can likely ignore him until it actually happens. Mims should stay on benches for the Week 10 Monday night showdown in Buffalo against the Bills.
Nov 11, 2023 1:47 PM EST
Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton indicated that rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. could be more involved in the offense coming out of their bye week. "We're going to work our tails off to move that needle to where he's getting opportunities," Payton said. It doesn't mean that Mims is all of a sudden going to be worth a spot in starting fantasy lineups against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10, but it's worth watching. The 21-year-old had just one catch for no gain in the Week 8 upset win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but he did play a season-high 40.8 percent of the offensive snaps in that contest. Mims has an impressive 22.4 yard-per-catch average in his first NFL season, but he's caught only 11 passes for 246 yards and one TD in his first eight games. For now, he'll continue to be a boom/bust deep threat in Denver's offense behind receivers Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.
Nov 6, 2023 12:27 PM EST
Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. shouldn't be counted on to do much of anything in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mims has just two targets, one catch, and four receiving yards over the last three weeks. He has just one single target in the last two weeks alone and seems to be getting phased out of the Denver offense. Heavy snow is expected for the Broncos' game against the Chiefs in Week 8, so we can expect a slower-paced contest with more running than passing. For the season, Mims has 10 catches on 13 targets for 246 yards and a touchdown. At this point, it feels like Denver would need to trade either Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy for them to involve Mims in the offense more. He can be dropped in regular season formats at this point but he remains a hold in dynasty leagues.
Oct 28, 2023 2:48 PM EST
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. has shown us in recent weeks just how ugly it can get if you toss him into your starting lineup. The 21-year-old big-play threat has just one catch for four yards in the last two weeks combined, and he wasn't even targeted in the Week 6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs while playing 23% of the offensive snaps. On the bright side so far in his first NFL season, Mims is second on the team with 246 receiving yards while averaging a hefty 24.6 yards per catch. The problem is, he only has 10 receptions to this point and hasn't played more than 35% of the snaps in a single game. Mims could bust out with a big catch down the field in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers, but are you really willing to risk that when considering his floor? We didn't think so.
Oct 21, 2023 1:13 PM EST
Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. showed his floor in the Week 5 loss to the New York Jets last Sunday, catching his only target for a four-yard pickup. Mims may be leading the Broncos with 246 receiving yards and 24.6 yards per reception in the first five games of his NFL career, but he's extremely boom-or-bust for fantasy purposes due to the fact that he just hasn't been on the field enough to make a consistent impact through the air. The 21-year-old speedy deep threat has been on the field slightly more the last two games, but he still hasn't exceeded 35 percent of the offensive snaps in a single game and probably won't as long as both Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy are healthy. There will be more splash plays for Mims deep down the field, but they will be few and far between and impossible to predict for fantasy managers heading into the Thursday night battle against the Kansas City Chiefs.
