WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

The Broncos are releasing DaeSean Hamilton.

Hamilton is coming off a torn ACL last spring and was set to be traded to the 49ers, so he's set to draw a lot of interest on the open market (including likely from San Francisco). The former fourth-round pick out of Penn State is an intriguing versatile potential addition to a receiving corps.

The Broncos waived DaeSean Hamilton.

Hamilton is the second player in the past couple of weeks that the Broncos have waived following a serious injury sustained away from the team facility. However, it's worth noting that Denver was planning on trading or waiving Hamilton before the injury. Hamilton faces a lengthy rehab process from his torn ACL, but we'll see if another team claims him to get him in the building with an eye toward 2022.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton tore his ACL, according to Taylor Bisciotti.

This is just terrible luck right after it was reported yesterday that Hamilton was going to be on the move to another team via either a trade or waivers, which would have given the fourth-round pick an opportunity to perhaps win a big role in an offense. Instead, the Penn State product is now facing a lengthy rehab and might miss the entire 2021 season. We wish Hamilton luck on his recovery.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

The Broncos are waiving DaeSean Hamilton.

The 2018 fourth-round pick was unable to find a large, consistent role in the Broncos offense, but he's an intriguing potential pickup for another squad looking for receiver help. Hamilton caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns in three seasons with Denver.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton (knee) is officially active for Week 11.

Hamilton was expected to be ready to go coming off the bye, and he is indeed active against the Vikings. Hamilton has some PPR upside, but there are probably better options for your fantasy lineup in standard-sized leagues.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton is dealing with a hamstring injury.

This helps explain why Denver signed receiver Nick Williams this morning. NFL Network's James Palmer says the team is "optimistic" and feel Hamilton's hamstring injury could've been worse, and the hope is that it's a short-term injury. However, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio notes that hamstring injuries can linger, so we'll see. He almost certainly won't play in the Hall of Fame Game next Thursday, but hopefully he's ready for Denver's second preseason game on August 8.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton catches five passes in Week 17.

Hamilton gained 49 yards on his five receptions against the Chargers. The rookie receiver's first NFL season ends with 30 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games, but he had at least five receptions and 40 yards in each of his last four games after Emmanuel Sanders' season-ending Achilles injury. Heading into 2019, we really like the Penn State product's ability, and he'll be a breakout candidate in his second season.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton scores in Week 16 loss.

Hamilton caught six passes for 40 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown in the second half. The rookie has now gone for solid lines of 7/47/1, 7/46, and 6/40/1 this month, and he will try to keep it going next week in the season finale against the Chargers. Consider Hamilton a decent FLEX option in all formats.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton catches seven passes against the Browns.

Hamilton gained 46 yards on his seven receptions in the Broncos' Week 15 Saturday night loss. The rookie receiver was targeted a team-high 12 times in the game, and he now has seven receptions in each of the past two games since Emmanuel Sanders' season-ending Achilles tear. Hamilton looked to be open on a deep ball late in the game, but Case Keenum's throw was out of bounds. Particularly in PPR leagues, Hamilton looks like a solid low-floor option for fantasy finals.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton catches first career touchdown against the Niners.

Hamilton caught seven passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 14 loss, with the score coming on a one-yard pass to the flat to bring the Broncos within one possession in the fourth quarter. This will probably be the first of many NFL touchdowns for Penn State's all-time leader in receptions, and he remains a very strong hold in dynasty leagues. Hamilton is also worth a look in redraft leagues if he's still available, particularly in PPR leagues. He'll look to make it two straight games with a score this Saturday night against Cleveland.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton catches one pass in Week 12.

Hamilton gained 13 yards on his lone reception against the Steelers. The rookie from Penn State is a strong dynasty-league option, but he's not a must-own in redraft leagues.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton caught one pass in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

It went for four yards, and he was targeted twice. Hamilton had missed a month with a knee injury, but he should be able to settle in as a nice No. 3 wideout the rest of the way. Next week, the Penn State product will get a tough draw with Steelers slot cornerback Mike Hilton, so he's better left on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton (knee) was a full participant in today's practice.

We'll let you know if anything changes when the final Week 11 injury report is released tomorrow, but Hamilton should be set to return about a month after he injured his knee on Thursday Night Football in October. The rookie receiver could have a sizable role for the rest of this season with Demaryius Thomas now in Houston, so he's worth a look as a fantasy pickup in deeper leagues.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton (knee) is out for Week 9.

Hamilton remains week-to-week with his knee injury, but he should have a chance to return after the team's Week 10 bye week. With Demaryius Thomas now on Houston, Hamilton should have a good opportunity to play a lot down the stretch.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton (knee) has been officially ruled out for Week 8.

Hamilton is considered week-to-week while dealing with his knee sprain. Hopefully the rookie receiver is feeling better soon so he's able to get back on the field.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton (knee) is out for the rest of tonight's game.

Hamilton took an illegal hit while he was trying to field a punt, and his leg was turned awkwardly. Being ruled out immediately isn't a good sign, but at least Hamilton was able to walk over to the sideline under his own power. Hopefully the rookie receiver's injury isn't too serious, but more information should become available in the next day or so.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton catches all three targets against the Jets.

Hamilton gained 44 yards on his three receptions in the Week 5 loss. The rookie receiver isn't getting enough opportunities to be a fantasy asset in standard leagues at the moment, but he's a very strong dynasty-league hold.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton doesn't catch a pass in Week 3.

The rookie receiver has a positive long-term outlook, but he's off the standard-league fantasy radar for now.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton doesn’t catch a pass in Week 2.

Hamilton doesn’t need to be owned outside of dynasty leagues at the moment.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

DaeSean Hamilton doesn't catch a pass in NFL debut.

The fourth-round rookie receiver from Penn State didn't catch a pass, but he received some time on offense for the Broncos. The future is bright for Hamilton, but he's not a fantasy option at the moment.

DaeSean Hamilton | Free Agent WR

The Broncos have selected Penn State wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton with the 113th pick (fourth round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Denver went with a wide receiver in the second round when they selected SMU's Courtland Sutton, and they get another target for Case Keenum with the former Penn State star. Perhaps John Elway is getting his next Demaryius Thomas (Sutton) and Emmanuel Sanders (Hamilton) in this draft, and both guys have the ability to develop into that. There's a chance Hamilton earns immediate snaps in the slot for the Broncos, but it's unlikely to lead to much fantasy success in 2018.
