DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Greg Dulcich is set to kick off his sophomore NFL campaign in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Dulcich ran a ton of routes last season as a rookie, but his statistical production was limited by Denver's general offensive ineptitude and Russell Wilson's struggles as a passer. Dulcich would normally be primed for a potential second-year breakout given his usage last season, but new Head Coach Sean Payton brought in old friend Adam Trautman to work alongside Dulcich in the TE room this year. In fact, the Broncos are currently listing Dulcich as the TE2 behind Trautman for Week 1. Dulcich is a superior pass catcher to Trautman, but Dulcich's usage is being threatened and the offense could be bad again if Sean Payton can't redeem Russell Wilson. Dulcich is best left on benches this week so we can see how he is used under Payton.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - 2023 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Greg Dulcich's 33-411-2 line on 55 targets may not jump off the page, but it was his rookie season in what was a disastrous Denver passing game in 2022. Perhaps the most encouraging stat from Dulcich's rookie year is his 84.1% route participation, which ranks alongside the elites at the TE position. Any TE that runs a route that often will be of interest in fantasy, and there is room for cautious optimism regarding Dulcich's outlook heading into his second pro season. First off, rookie TEs rarely make a big impact in fantasy but are good candidates for production jumps in their second season. Second, the incompetent Nathaniel Hackett has been replaced by offensive guru Sean Payton as Head Coach in Denver, which provides hope that there is systemic improvement on the horizon for the Broncos offense. Dulcich's receiving numbers from last season don't stand out, but nothing stood out about what was going on in Denver on the offensive side of the ball in 2022. Dulcich is going to be running a ton of routes for the new-look offense this year, so he will be a big part of any Russell Wilson redemption tour and that will show up in his box score.

Fantasy Downside
Dulcich will still be catching passes from Wilson, who was downright bad for most of last season. Anyone banking on Dulcich as their fantasy TE1 will have to hope Wilson bounces back in a big way this year. It's also unclear where exactly Dulcich will fall in the target hierarchy. He will definitely be behind Jerry Jeudy, and could also fall behind Courtland Sutton or rookie Marvin Mims depending on how those players perform in the preseason. There is a strong possibility the Broncos' pass catching group turns out to be one big committee behind Jeudy once the regular season starts. Dulcich is interesting in a playing-time sort of way, but there is a wide range of potential outcomes for him in terms of fantasy.

2023 Bottom Line
Dulcich's ADP puts him right on the border between low-end TE1 and high-end TE2. That seems appropriate given he is the clear pass catching at TE for the Broncos, who have a lot of uncertainty on offense heading into the season. If you believe the Broncos bounce back in a big way, Dulcich makes for a very interesting gamble at TE. If you believe we'll see more of the same offense in 2023, Dulcich will not be a viable starter in most fantasy leagues.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
Greg Dulcich has yet to practice this week due to hamstring issue he suffered near the end of Week 16's game against the Rams. Dulcich will likely have to get on the practice field in some capacity Friday to have any chance to suit up on Sunday. If Dulcich ends up playing, he is fine as a low-end TE1 with Russell Wilson back under center. If Dulcich misses this week's game, none of his backup options make for interesting fantasy plays.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Los Angeles Rams
Greg Dulcich suffered greatly from Russell Wilson's absence in Week 15 as he only saw two targets, catching one of them for 11 scoreless yards. Dulcich's two targets were his fewest in any game this season and he had seen eight in back-to-back games before last week's dud. The good news is Wilson looks set to return in Week 16 to take on the Rams in LA, and he clearly has more of an eye for Dulcich than Brett Rypien showed in his spot start. The Rams defense has been below-average this season in terms of fantasy production allowed to opposing tight ends, setting Dulcich up well for some success with his starting quarterback under center. Shake off last week and re-engage Dulcich as a low-end TE1 in Week 16.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Arizona Cardinals
After a strong showing in Week 13, Greg Dulcich only managed 42 yards on three catches in Week 14 despite seeing eight targets. Dulcich continues to get great usage for a rookie tight end, but the generally poor quarterback play in Denver this season has rendered him extremely inconsistent for fantasy managers. Russell Wilson is going through concussion protocol which is concerning for Dulcich's projection this week, but at least he gets to face off with the Cardinals, who boast the worst defense against opposing tight ends in the entire NFL. Dulcich's volatile production can be frustrating, but he still profiles as a low-end TE1 this week.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Greg Dulcich saw seven targets and caught six balls for 85 scoreless yards in Week 13 as one of the lone bright spots in an offense devoid of excitement. Now Courtland Sutton is hurt and looks like he will miss time, meaning it will be Dulcich, Jerry Jeudy, and Kendall Hinton catching passes from Russell Wilson on Sunday against the Chiefs. There isn't much to get excited about on the offensive side of the ball in Denver, but Dulcich continues to get great usage for a rookie tight end and the Broncos will run out of alternatives for targets given the injuries on their depth chart and the prospect of having to try to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and Co. Dulcich still doesn't have much touchdown upside in arguably the league's worst offense, but he is a TE1 given the state of his position for fantasy.

DEN TE Greg Dulcich - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Baltimore Ravens
With an 86% snap share and a route run on 76% of Denver's passing plays, we hope Greg Dulcich got in enough cardio on Sunday to keep him entertained because the Broncos' offense is a tough watch these days, and Dulcich is feeling the effects in the box score. Even on that playing time, Dulcich only saw three targets, catching two of them for 11 scoreless yards. Most tight ends in Dulcich's range are touchdown-dependent, which is a big problem because the Broncos don't really score touchdowns and currently sit dead last in the NFL with 14.3 points per game. As much as Dulcich's underlying usage looks tempting for fantasy, he is nothing more than a desperation start at this point.
