Offseason 'progress was obvious' for Broncos WR Cody Latimer

Denver Broncos - [Full Article]

No player benefitted more from Demaryius Thomas' absence during the Broncos' offseason than Cody Latimer. With the three-time Pro Bowler not under contract, Latimer got the repetitions with the first team that eluded him last year, and the progress was obvious.

"I’m really excited about what he can bring and I know he’s a lot better now than when he started," HC Gary Kubiak said. "I’m excited moving forward.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Latimer is a player to monitor this offseason, especially with the news that Emmanuel Sanders is going to play the slot in three-receiver sets. Latimer had a disappointing rookie season and wasn't even able to beat out Andre Caldwell. 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. Latimer’s talent may earn him a larger role, but that remains to be seen.
