Jerry Jeudy 2020 Outlook

I was extremely impressed with what I saw last night. The drops aren't something I'd worry about long-term. My takeaway was just how much separation he was getting. Clearly the route-running hype was true. 

Lotta mouths to feed in a mediocre offense but Jeudy is definitely the real deal.

I didn't watch the game but Jeff Driskel's stat line is absolutely respectable given the Steelers' brutal defense. Nothing about my outlook on Jeudy changes, really. Just being patient and hopeful that he blooms into a WR2 at some point.

 

Edit: Just learned of Sutton's potentially serious knee injury, so that's a boost of confidence in possibly flexing Jeudy next week. Broncos got Tampa Bay and New York Jets coming up.

Dude gets open but can’t catch. 

Really hoping it's just a case of the rookie jitters. Again, beating this dead horse again, but no preseason snaps for a rookie is a tough recipe for success. The upshot is his route running looks to be all it was billed to be, he's crisp. Given the targets (7-8 per so far) and the route running, he's earned another 2-3 weeks on my bench to see if he can move past this drop zone... With Sutton's potentially year-ending knee issue, this could be a leeg winner if he can just apply a bit more stick-em...

Did he have more drops game 2? Saw the big drops week one, didnt see much of the game week 2.

Yes, he dropped one over the middle that even prompted one of the announcers (Aikman, if memory serves) to say (and I'm paraphrasing from memory, but believe I've caught the intent): "Jeudy's gotta start coming down with those balls across the middle. Not every ball is going to be perfectly thrown, but that's a ball you need to come down with in the NFL."

Well, he will have lots of targets from which to perfect his catching. 

The announcers did say that he had a history of drops in college as well, but that they were usually the result of focus turning upfield before securing the catch (and that the same was true of week 1). I wasn't able to watch week 1, but that's something you can overcome with practice and focus, if you are hungry enough to take that coaching seriously. He seems really hungry to succeed, in all the interviews and such I've watched, so I'm holding some hope that he'll overcome in the long run. I think he'll have a blowup game or two early this year, but the back half of this year is when he really settles in. They already target him a bunch and he's got high draft capital along with the loss of their alpha, so I have a hard time not seeing this guy entering start-worthy land by 2H (and could be much sooner if he can be coached into prioritizing "maintain the catch" over "get downfield".

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said WR Jerry Jeudy will be a game time decision for Week 3 against the Bucs. 

Jeudy was listed as questionable. He was targeted seven times last week against the Steelers. If he's inactive this Sunday, rookie KJ Hamler -- who made his debut last week -- becomes a sneaky fantasy play. The speedy wideout could default into volume in what's likely to be a pass heavy Denver offense. Hamler got seven targets while playing 62 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Week 2.

Rib injury, practiced in full Friday but I'd still listed as game time decision.

Anyone happen to see how he looked Sunday? He seems to have a relatively safe 8-10 point floor in PPR. I'm probably gonna be forced to start him as my WR2 this week, hoping he can pull off a big game vs the Jets.

 

Yeah, I'm in the same boat my friend. 

The bigger concern might be the change at QB though.
