Albert Okwuegbunam May Fall Back Into Anonymity

Denver Broncos rookie tight end Albert Okwuegbunam was second on the team with six targets in his NFL debut in the Week 6 win over the Patriots, catching two passes for 45 yards. It was a nice showing for the large-bodied and speedy tight end in his first-ever NFL game. But with Noah Fant (ankle) trending up to return in Week 7 against the Chiefs, the 22-year-old Missouri product could go back to being a healthy inactive this Sunday. When Fant is healthy, he's been one of quarterback Drew Lock's favorite targets, and that is especially true with receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) out for the year. Even if Fant misses another game, Okwuegbunam would be a desperation low-end TE2 in the deepest of leagues.

Albert Okwuegbunam Makes Debut Against Patriots

Denver Broncos rookie tight end Albert Okwuegbunam saw the field for the first time in his NFL career on Sunday against the Patriots and caught two of his six targets for 45 yards in the 18-12 win. With Noah Fant (ankle) inactive, the rookie tight end was the preferred choice for quarterback Drew Lock over tight end Nick Vannett, who caught his only target for seven yards. Okwuegbunam's six targets were also second on the team behind Tim Patrick. The fourth-round pick is athletic and fast for his size (6-foot-5, 255 pounds), but he'll likely fade into the background again once Fant returns from his injury, possibly in Week 7 against the Chiefs. It's clear, though, that Lock likes throwing to his tight ends, which is great news for Fant's fantasy managers.

Broncos Add Another Pass-Catcher With Albert Okwuegbunam

The Denver Broncos used the 118th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to add yet another pass-catcher for quarterback Drew Lock. Missouri tight end Albert Okwuegbunam will join a Broncos draft class that already includes wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler, who were their first and second picks, respectively. At 6-foot-6, Okwuegbunam is a huge red-zone target, as evidenced by his six touchdowns in just nine games last season. He should contribute as a rookie in two-tight end sets playing behind 2019 draftee Noah Fant. With all of Denver's offensive weapons now in tow, it's unlikely that Okwuegbunam will carve out a huge role in his rookie season, however.
