With Demaryius Thomas no longer on the roster and Emmanuel Sanders out over the final month of his rookie season, DaeSean Hamilton posted 25 grabs for 182 yards and two TDs. During that four-game span, Courtland Sutton had to go against opponents’ top DBs as the No. 1 WR, so Hamilton thrived, being targeted 38 times in December. He has excellent speed, with the ability to turn a short pass into big gains.
Heading into the regular season, Hamilton will be the Broncos No. 3/slot WR, which may limit his playing time and targets. Despite his quickness, he averaged just 8.1 yards per reception in ’18.
Even with the expected upgrade at QB in Joe Flacco, don’t expect a big season from Hamilton, especially if Sanders is able to make it through the entire season. He showed promise as an underneath receiver, running precise routes, but look for him to finish with around 500 yards for the season.
