Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

The Broncos released Jeff Heuerman.

This release is a bit of a surprise for a former third-round tight end that's chipped in nicely on offense for Denver, but this will give Heuerman an opportunity to find another team well ahead the start of the season. At the moment, Heuerman is off the fantasy radar.

The Broncos are re-signing Jeff Heuerman.

Mike Klis of 9News first reported the deal, which is reportedly two years, $9 million. Heuerman came on strong toward the middle of last season, including a ten-reception, 83-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Texans in Week 9; but he suffered broken ribs and a bruised lung in Week 12, which knocked him out for the rest of the season. Heuerman is expected to enter 2019 as the team's starting tight end, a spot that could deliver TE1 fantasy value with Joe Flacco at quarterback.

Jeff Heuerman is out for the season.

This is surprising, as it's unclear when Heuerman was hurt in yesterday's win over the Steelers. It's an unfortunate end to a soldi season for the fourth-year tight end, especially after he came on strong in recent weeks including a ten-reception performance in Week 9. Heuerman's season ends with 31 receptions for 281 yards and a touchdown in 11 games. Matt LaCosse, who caught a touchdown yesterday, is the next man up for Denver, but he's not a recommended fantasy pickup. We look forward to seeing Heuerman back on the field next season, and we hope he's feeling better soon.

Jeff Heuerman catches two passes in Week 12.

Heuerman gained 44 yards on his two receptions versus Pittsburgh, with the receptions going for 29 and 15 yards. Heuerman is playing well for the Broncos, so he's in the TE1 mix in a great matchup against the Bengals in Week 13.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman caught four passes for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

It was a somewhat quiet day for Heuerman after a breakout game before the bye, but he saw a healthy five targets, and Case Keenum didn't really get going until the team's final drive. Heuerman won't be anything more than a low-end TE2 for next week's matchup against the Steelers.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman goes for 10/83/1 in loss to the Texans.

Heuerman was great on a team-high 11 targets, as he consistently made defenders miss on short receptions and helped set up the would-be game-winning field goal with three grabs on the game's final drive (unfortunately, Brandon McManus missed a 51-yard attempt). The 25-year-old scored last week, but it was surprising to see him suddenly operate as the No. 1 option in the passing game, and he's worth picking up for all fantasy owners seeking help at the position. However, the Broncos have a bye in Week 10, so you'll have to wait for Heuerman to potentially get in lineups.

Jeff Heuerman scores in Broncos' loss.

Heuerman caught one pass for four yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs. This was Heuerman's first touchdown this season, and he's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Jeff Heuerman caught three passes for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Heuerman saw a healthy six targets in a good matchup, but he couldn't take advantage with a big day. The 25-year-old will look for his first touchdown of the season on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Jeff Heuerman catches two passes in Week 5.

Heuerman gained 18 yards on his two receptions. He's not a recommended fantasy option right now.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman leads team in receiving as Broncos fall on Monday Night Football.

Heuerman caught four passes for 57 yards in the loss, including a 36-yard reception on the final drive of the game to put Denver in Chiefs territory. The 25-year-old started with Jake Butt (knee) done for the season, and he showed well against Kansas City. That said, he isn't a recommended fantasy option for Week 5 against the Jets.

Heuerman gained seven yards on his two receptions (four targets) in the Week 3 loss. He's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment,

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman catches one pass in Week 17 loss.

It went for nine yards. Heuerman finishes his sophomore campaign with nine receptions for 142 yards and two touchdowns. It would be a surprise if he turned into a fantasy option next season.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman catches long touchdown in Broncos' win.

Heuerman was target once against the Colts, catching a deep pass down the middle of the field for a 54-yard touchdown. It was a perfect throw by Brock Osweiler, and Heuerman did the rest by throwing a stiff arm and getting into the end zone. Heuerman isn't a recommended fantasy option, as he has only eight receptions this year.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman caught one pass in Sunday night's loss to New England.

It went for four yards. Heuerman isn't a fantasy option as he shares snaps with A.J. Derby and Virgil Green.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman catches one pass in Week 8.

Heuerman gained 11 yards on his lone reception. His role simply isn't big enough to be a fantasy option.

Jeff Heuerman | Free Agent TE

Jeff Heuerman catches first career touchdown in SNF loss.

Heuerman scored on a 13-yard pass in the fourth quarter, and he finished with two catches for 24 yards. The former third-round pick isn't a fantasy option heading into next week's matchup with the Chargers.
