Broncos Beat: Use of two-TE formations will limit WR Cody Latimer's production

Denver Broncos - [Full Article]

Andrew Mason of the Broncos website:

I was asked recently on a radio appearance about Cody Latimer's fantasy value, and I think he's worth a late-round flyer based on his potential, and if there's an injury to one of the top two receivers, he's going to be targeted frequently. But with the Broncos making use of "12" and "21" personnel more often than in past years, I don't know that Latimer will see enough targets to be an every-week fantasy starter, even though his performance, skill set and improved command of the scheme screams, "quality NFL starter."

Fantasy Impact: 

Latimer had a disappointing rookie season and wasn't even able to beat out Andre Caldwell. As Mason stated, new HC Gary Kubiak favors two-TE sets, so Latimer’s snaps may be limited. The third receiver in Baltimore didn’t even play half the snaps under Kubiak. However, Latimer’s talent may force him into a larger role, but that remains to be seen.
