Hamilton did very little early in his rookie season but got some chances down the stretch and showed well. He had at least five receptions four straight games to end his season. He also scored twice in those games. He did not top 50 yards in a game, though. Hamilton showed well as a possession receiver and should serve as the No. 3 or slot receiver for the Broncos this season. Hamilton is a very good route runner. He gets in and out of his breaks in a hurry. He has plus hands, catching the ball very well. He isn't a great deep threat, though, and is just so so after the catch.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hamilton can improve some on last year but his ceiling is a little limited. He'll get his catches but his yards and touchdown totals won't be anything to write home about. He could get around 60 receptions for 600 yards with five or so scores.
When the Broncos drafted Courtland Sutton and Daesean Hamilton in 2018, everyone fully expected them to take over as the two starting WRs in 2019. While that looks to have come true, it was Sutton who was to be the "Demaryius Thomas" while Hamilton was to be the "Emmanuel Sanders." A funny thing happened in 2018: Sutton got his chance to be the top guy and completely flopped. Meanwhile, Hamilton closed at the year averaging 9.5 targets over his final four games. Admittedly that is a small sample size and the Broncos have changed quarterbacks, but Sutton was not being targeted as often as Hamilton over that span. I'm not suggesting Hamilton is a lock to be the primary option in Denver's passing game, but he has legitimately WR2 upside and is being severely overlooked. The discrepancy in ADP between Sutton and Hamilton is completely unjustified. Hamilton is poised to operate as the primary slot receiver and his competition for targets is minimal. Hamilton is looking at the possibility of a 120 target season. His ADP is certain to climb in the coming months, but I expect him to remain a value up until opening weekend.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton had his best game of the season last week, but still has yet to carve out a significant role in the Broncos offense. The 2nd-year receiver could see a benefit from a Denver passing game that looked like it found a groove last week, as well as the fact the Broncos will likely be playing from behind in a majority of games this year. However, until he finds consistent production, Hamilton should be on waivers in most leagues.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton had one of his best performances of 2019 as the passing attack for Denver was in full force. With that being said, it was still far from a standout game for the 2nd-year Penn State product. Hamilton hauled in three of five targets thrown his way, totaling 57 yards on the afternoon. This is the most impressive that Hamilton has looked all year and he will look to build on it as he lineups against the Los Angeles Chargers secondary next week.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton has been a disappointment to start the 2019 season. He has struggled the last two weeks, and there is no reason that owners should give him the benefit of the doubt to flip the script against a stout Green Bay Packers Defense. If Hamilton is still on your bench in hopes he can figure things out, keep him there this week and out of your starting lineup.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton struggled once again in Week 2, as the Broncos lost their home-opener versus the Chicago Bears. In similar fashion to Week 1, the Penn State product failed to haul in the targets thrown his way, only catching two of six passes that signal-caller Joe Flacco threw his way. This tallied 15 yards on the game, far below the production of the other pass catchers on the team. Hamilton has yet to provide any reason for owners to consider starting him, let alone keep him on their roster, as he should be a scratch in all leagues in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton had an extremely disappointing performance in Week 1, which further hurt his stock as his fellow receivers excelled on Monday evening. The 24-year-old receiver hauled in two of four passes thrown his way for five yards, having a rough stretch where he dropped a must grab touchdown pass, followed by a drop on his next pass from quarterback Joe Flacco. Hamilton should be on waivers or benches in most leagues following his abysmal week one performance.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton currently holds very little fantasy relevance in week one as the Broncos face the Oakland Raiders on Monday night. Hamilton is currently the third receiver on the Broncos depth chart and should get some looks in week one from Joe Flacco in his first game as a Bronco. However, he most likely won't have enough production to justify starting him in most leagues. That being said, the 2nd-year Penn State product does have enough upside to roster him in very deep leagues.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton hauled in two catches for 21 yards on Monday night, also getting a red-zone look from Joe Flacco that was overthrown to Hamilton. The 2nd-year product from Penn State continues to make strides in his second year on the roster with the Broncos, as he looks to carve out a role in the Broncos 2019 offensive scheme. Hamilton is currently getting flex value in deep leagues and is a player to keep an eye on as the season continues to approach,
Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton (knee) said his knee bothered him at the end of last season. He spent much of the offseason training in Florida and focused on putting weight on and getting stronger and faster. Hamilton said his knee is feeling great now as training camp approaches. The 24-year-old fourth-round pick had 30 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season. He could make some noise in deeper leagues as the No. 3 wideout behind Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton this season.
Denver Broncos second-year wide receiver Daesean Hamilton said he is building chemistry with quarterback Joe Flacco during organized team activities. "Were getting all the reps together and building that chemistry. Working with Joe so far has been great. Throughout training camp and OTAs, hes had great command of the offense and is putting us in the right positions as an offense," Hamilton said. The 24-year-old will look to have a bigger role in 2019 after catching 30 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season.
