With Courtland Sutton out, Tim Patrick will see more targets alongside rookies Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler and Tyrie Cleveland. Additionally, third-year pro DaeSean Hamilton and second-year pro Diontae Spencer, a former CFL star who is the Broncos’ punt returner, will also need to elevate. The depth in the receivers’ room has Patrick still feeling confident about the unit’s potential, even minus its injured Pro Bowler.
Even with a young, talented group of WRs, the story said the onus is on Patrick after spending his offseason training with Sutton and Hamilton in Miami and Atlanta, where Patrick sought to bring more refinement to his game. Patrick is a name to keep an eye on but probably isn't on a lot of radars this week, and, the QB situation isn't ideal as either Jeff Driskel or Blake Bortles will be under center until Drew Lock comes back.
