Broncos Beat: It's on TE Albert Okwuegbunam

From a skill standpoint, Albert Okwuegbunam is the Broncos’ best receiving option at tight end, at least until Greg Dulcich gets more time on the field. Eric Tomlinson and Eric Saubert are blockers/short-area receivers and Andrew Beck is part tight end/part fullback.

“Albert has the ability to run away (from defenders),” Russell Wilson said during camp. “I’ve been pretty hard on him. We’ve been pushing (him) and he’s working his butt off every day.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said the Broncos could prioritize targeting the TE in the red zone this year. It even had a quote from GM George Patton who said Wilson targets the TE "a lot." It added WR Tim Patrick, who is out for the year, was expected to be a key target in the red zone, but now it could be the TEs. When Dulcich is back from injury, both TEs could be on the field together. We've been on this here at 4for4, reporting earlier this summer when a beat writer wondered if Dulcich could be a player to step in for Patrick. For now, it will be Albert O until Dulcich can get back, and there seems to be a lot of hype surrounding Albert O in the fantasy community. But the return of Dulcich could eventually put a dent in Okwuegbunam's fantasy value.
