Player Outlook
Mims is a sleeper receiver thanks to his rare speed. He'll compete for playing time this preseason with the Broncos. Though Mims found the end zone just once as a rookie, he did manage to rack up at least 16 receiving yards on eight of his 22 receptions. That kind of efficiency will get him noticed in Denver, where there's fierce competition expected for all of their receiving roles this preseason. View Mims as a late-round pick in all kinds of leagues, but especially in Best Ball formats.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Feels better in second offseason

    Mims said things are going "a lot smoother" for him in his second NFL offseason, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. In addition to having a much better understanding of Sean Payton's offense, Mims mentioned that he's "as healthy as I've been in a long time." The 2023 second-round pick was limited by hamstring injuries last spring and summer, though that didn't stop him from having a big impact early in the season, including four receptions of 38 or more yards and a kick-return TD within the first four weeks. While Mims remained effective on special teams apart from a pair of lost fumbles, he had only 135 receiving yards on 22 targets in his 12 appearances after Week 4. The NFL's new kickoff rules figure to make Mims even more important for Denver's special teams this year, and he should also be part of a competition for the No. 2 receiver job opposite Courtland Sutton. If not Mims, it'll likely be Josh Reynolds, Troy Franklin or Tim Patrick (Achilles) stepping up as the No. 2 receiver, though a rotation also is possible.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Stock on rise after Jeudy trade

    Mims projects to be the team's No. 2 target after Jerry Jeudy was traded to the Browns on Saturday, Zac Stevens of reports. Head coach Sean Payton made a point of mentioning his affinity for Mims after the Broncos selected the Oklahoma product in the second round of last year's draft despite not having any obvious need at wide receiver with Courtland Sutton and Jeudy on the roster. That hype quickly faded, as Mims amounted to more of a deep-ball specialist when the aforementioned duo was both healthy, but the soon-to-be 22-year-old will have plenty of time to succeed in the offense this season with Saturday's trade confirmed. Mims' success will obviously depend on who ultimately takes over as the Broncos' next signal caller, but it's unclear if the team will lean toward a rookie or build around one of the few established veterans expected to be on the open market come the new league year.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Finishes underwhelming rookie year

    Mims ended the 2023 regular season with 22 receptions on 33 targets for 377 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. He added nine rushes for 30 yards and scored one kick return touchdown. Mims entered the 2023 campaign with expectations of being a contributor in Denver's offense, yet his rookie season was mostly underwhelming. Behind both Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy on the depth chart, the 21-year-old wideout often found himself competing for playing time with Brandon Johnson and Lil'Jordan Humphrey for the third receiver spot. When teammate Tim Patrick (Achilles) landed on injured reserve in training camp, many assumed that Mims could establish himself early on, but Denver's coaching staff was committed to easing him into the offense. The Oklahoma product flashed his speed and playmaking ability in his limited opportunities, so its possible that he could be a larger part of the Broncos' offensive plans in 2024. What remains to be seen is who will be throwing him the ball, as the team is expected to part ways with Russell Wilson in the offseason.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Practices fully Thursday

    Mims (hamstring) returned to a full practice Thursday. Mims, who was inactive for the Broncos' Week 17 win over the Chargers, logged a limited practice Wednesday, but the wideout's return to a full session a day later sets the stage for him to suit up for his team's season finale against the Raiders on Sunday. In 15 games to date, the 2023 second-rounder has logged a 21-361-1 line on 32 targets, a pace that has limited the rookie's fantasy lineup utility to deeper formats.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Won't play Sunday

    Mims (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers. With Mims and Courtland Sutton (concussion) both unavailable Sunday, look for Jerry Jeudy to lead the Broncos' Week 17 wideout corps, while Brandon Johnson, Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Michael Bandy and Phillip Dorsett are also candidates to contribute to the team's passing attack versus Los Angeles. Mims will now target a potential return to action next weekend against the Raiders.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Added to injury report

    Mims was a limited participant at practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Mims practiced fully Wednesday, but his status now needs to be monitored ahead of Sunday's game against the Chargers, especially with fellow wideout Courtland Sutton (concussion) missing his second straight practice Thursday. If Mims is able to play this weekend, he'll be working with a new quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who has replaced Russell Wilson as the Broncos' starter for the final two games of the season.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Week 17 Waiver Priority List

    The Broncos could be without Courtland Sutton (hamstring) in Week 17 against the Chargers, which should put Mims and Brandon Johnson (1 percent rostered) in line for more work opposite Jerry Jeudy. I'm hopeful Mims gets a bigger role given his upside, and he had three catches for 63 yards in Week 16 against New England when Sutton was injured, although Mims lost a fumble on a kickoff return. Johnson had three catches for 47 yards and a touchdown on five targets against the Patriots, and both Denver receivers could be viable options in deeper leagues if Sutton is out against the Chargers, who are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers this year.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Held catchless in Week 15

    Mims carried the ball once for eleven yards and failed to secure either of his two targets in Saturday's 42-17 loss to the Lions. Mims was held without a catch for the fourth time this season as he continues to be used sparingly in Denver's offense. The rookie wideout played 26 of the Broncos' 64 offensive snaps Saturday, with Lil'Jordan Humphrey (37) handling No. 3 receiver duties behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. Mims' limited usage keeps him far off the fantasy radar for a Week 16 matchup with the Patriots.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Two grabs in win

    Mims caught two of three targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 24-7 over the Chargers. Mims played 25 of the Broncos' 67 offensive snaps Sunday, running behind Courtland Sutton (50), Jerry Jeudy (38) and Lil'Jordan Humphrey (38). The rookie wideout continued his disappointing 2023 campaign, as he's now recorded just 18 receptions for 298 yards and one touchdown. Mims' limited usage will continue to keep him off the fantasy radar when the Broncos visit the Lions in Week 15.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Targeted twice against Texans

    Mims caught one of two targets for five yards and carried the ball once for eight yards in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Texans. After averaging a 57 percent offensive snap share since Denver's Week 9 bye, Mims saw his playing time decrease in Week 13 and played just 31 percent of snaps. As has been the case throughout the 2023 campaign, the rookie's role in the offense is not consistent enough to warrant much consideration for fantasy purposes. Mims will continue to struggle to see meaningful usage when the Broncos face the Chargers in Week 14.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Cleared to play vs. Texans

    Mims (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Mims avoided the Broncos' final Week 13 injury report by upgrading to full practice participation Friday after a pair of limited sessions. The rookie out of Oklahoma should continue to work as Denver's return man on special teams while filling a depth role at wide receiver. Mims has caught more than two passes in a game only once in his young career while chipping in one receiving touchdown and one kick return touchdown.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Limited by hamstring issue

    Mims was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Mims will have two more chances to increase his practice activity this week and clear up any concern about his availability for Sunday's game against the Texans. That said, with Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy (groin) ahead of him in the pecking order at receiver, Mims profiles as a speculative fantasy lineup option for the Week 13 slate.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Targeted once in win

    Mims failed to catch his lone target and rushed once for minus-11 yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Packers. Mims' frustrating start to the 2023 campaign continued Sunday, as the wideout was held without a catch and lost yards on his one carry in the contest. The rookie played 18 of 59 offensive snaps, the lowest of any Denver wide receiver. The Broncos' coaching staff appears firmly committed to bringing the Oklahoma product along slowly this season despite flashing his playmaking ability with several opportunities. Up next for the Broncos is a rematch with the Chiefs. Mims failed to record a target in their first matchup, and the 21-year-old should continue to be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes as Denver hosts Kansas City in Week 8.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Not targeted in loss

    Mims failed to record a single target in Thursday's 19-8 loss to the Chiefs. Mims played just 23 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps Thursday, his lowest snap share of the season. In addition, the rookie wideout was held without a target for the first time in six weeks. Fantasy managers hoping for Mims to become more involved in Denver's scheme have been disappointed as the Broncos' coaching staff has yet to fully integrate him into the offense. On a day when the Broncos could have used a spark through the air, Mims earned the fewest snaps of any of Denver's wide receivers. The 21-year-old's talent is undeniable, and though it's possible that things open up for him in coach Sean Payton's plans later in the season, he remains extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes with his current usage. Nonetheless, Mims will once again hope to take a step forward and be more involved in the team's game plan when the Broncos host the Packers in Week 7.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Minimal involvement in loss

    Mims secured his only target for four yards in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Jets. Mims was an afterthought in the Broncos' offense Sunday, earning a season-low one target in the contest. The rookie wideout saw the field for just 33 percent of Denver's offensive snaps, playing behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Brandon Johnson. Despite Mims' impressive playmaking ability, the Broncos' coaching staff has yet to fully unleash him on offense. On tap is a Thursday night matchup with the Chiefs, a game that will likely require the Broncos to air it out in order to keep up with the high-powered Chiefs offense. The 21-year-old will look to bounce back in this Week 6 matchup when the Broncos head to Kansas City.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Makes impact in blowout loss

    Mims brought in three of five targets for 73 yards, rushed once for three yards and returned two kickoffs for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' 70-20 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Mims showed off his playmaking ability for the second straight week, recording a 38-yard grab while also offering a brief reprieve from a second-half Dolphins onslaught with a 99-yard kickoff return TD after Miami had jumped out to a 63-13 lead. Mims could continue carving out a bigger role in an offense that's looked better under new head coach Sean Payton, with his next opportunity to do so coming in a Week 4 road matchup against the Bears.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Displays big-play ability

    Mims caught both of his targets for 113 yards and a touchdown while rushing twice for 10 yards in Sunday's 35-33 loss to Washington. Mims wound up breaking the century mark while finishing as Denver's leading receiver despite seeing just two targets all game. The second-round rookie saw the same number of targets last week, but he turned those into just nine yards. The stark contrast should warn fantasy managers not to get too excited after this huge game, as Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy both started for the Broncos and had more targets than the rookie. That said, if Mims were to carve out a larger role on offense via an injury or depth chart change, he would stand to gain significant fantasy value. Mims' next chance to impress will come against the Dolphins next Sunday.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Catches two passes in debut

    Mims caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Raiders. Despite talk of a potentially expanded role early in the season with Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) sidelined, Mims was on the field for just 17 of the Broncos' 64 offensive plays Sunday. The rookie wideout played behind Courtland Sutton, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Brandon Johnson in snap percentage, and his two targets tied for the lowest total of the group. In the first regular season game of the Sean Payton era, Russell Wilson ultimately targeted 11 different players over 34 attempts in the passing game. With that said, it's possible Denver's coaching staff chose to ease Mims into action in his debut, but his impressive talent should lead to his increased involvement in the offense moving forward. Jeudy's injury status is still uncertain, but if he can return this week, Mims' upside could be capped when the Broncos host the Commanders in Week 2.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    We'll see how long Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) is out, but Mims should play a prominent role this season even when Jeudy is back. Tim Patrick (Achilles) being out for the season will keep Mims on the field in three-receiver sets along with Jeudy and Courtland Sutton, and this is the first receiver Sean Payton added to the roster after taking over as the head coach. Mims is worth a late-round flier in all leagues, and he's worth adding for up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Broncos' Marvin Mims: Could step up for Jeudy

    Coach Sean Payton said Thursday that Mims will play a lot in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams and may otherwise be asked to step up in the WR room if Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) misses time, Zac Stevens of reports. Jeudy is scheduled for an MRI following his early exit from Thursday's practice. He and Courtland Sutton have been the team's top two wide receivers all spring/summer, with Mims a clear favorite for the No. 3 role ever since Tim Patrick suffered an Achilles tear July 31. The rookie now has some chance to open the year in a top-two role, as the competition for playing time is less than formidable -- namely Brandon Johnson, Marquez Callaway, Kendall Hinton -- in the event of Jeudy missing regular-season games.
