2024 RTSports Outlook

Mims made a few big plays his rookie season but didn't get a lot of consistent work as the No. 3 or 4 receiver for the Broncos most weeks. He had 22 receptions for 377 yards and a touchdown. The positive is he averaged an impressive 17.1 yards per reception, showing his big-play potential. He just wasn't on the field a lot. The Broncos have some openings at receiver this season, so Mims could play a bigger role from day one with a strong offseason and training camp. As mentioned, Mims is a big-play threat at receiver. He can make plays after the catch and also run by defenders with his plus speed on deep routes. Mims is a bit of a limited route runner, though, and can struggle some with the contested catch.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Mims is a wild card. He has the potential to take a step forward this year, but will need the consistent work for that to happen. We just aren't sure that happens. Take him as a deep reserve and hope for the best. He could get around 40 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Many in the fantasy community were excited when the Denver Broncos traded up into Round 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft to take WR Marvin Mims Jr. at No. 63 overall, but the rookie WR finished with just 32 targets for 22 receptions to go along with 377 receiving yards and 1 TD, although Mims did average a whopping 17.1 yards per reception. After WR Jerry Jeudy was traded to Cleveland, Mims' only competition for targets will come from veteran WR Courtland Sutton, Josh Reynolds, and rookie WR Troy Franklin. The fantasy markets appear down on the Broncos' offense for 2024 as they will likely feature rookie QB Bo Nix under center, but this season will tell us a lot about just how great of a Head Coach Sean Payton truly is. Expect Mims to start the season as the team's slot WR, but his fate will likely be heavily tied to the success of his rookie quarterback. He can be very easily stacked at the very end of best ball drafts with Nix.

Player Notes
Jun 1 1:10pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. said he's feeling better heading into his second year in the NFL, and the electric return man will also get more chances to return kicks in 2024 with the new league rules. Mims averaged 26.5 yards per kickoff return last year and had one of the league's four return touchdowns. The second-round pick last year was a Pro Bowl returner in his rookie season, but he had only 22 catches for 377 yards and a touchdown as a receiver, with most of the production coming early in the year. The coaching staff struggled to find snaps for Mims behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy is now gone, but Mims will be competing for snaps with Josh Reynolds, Tim Patrick and rookie Troy Franklin. Mims has the potential to make noise as a deep threat once again, but unless an injury opens up consistent snaps for him on offense, he may just be more of a special teams asset for Denver in 2024.

The Denver Broncos are expecting to see growth from wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. as he heads into his second year in the league. "You're going to see a lot of growth from Year 1 to Year 2," head coach Sean Payton said. Mims, the team's second-round pick (63rd overall) in 2023 out of Oklahoma, averaged a healthy 17.1 yards per catch in his first NFL season last year but caught just 22 passes on 33 targets for 377 yards and only one touchdown in 16 games (seven starts). The 22-year-old didn't get all that many opportunities to get into a rhythm in his rookie campaign but showed potential as a deep threat down the field from time to time. His fantasy stock immediately got a boost when the team traded Jerry Jeudy to the Browns in the offseason, but he'll still have to show improvement in Year 2 in order to see playing time alongside Josh Reynolds, Tim Patrick and rookie Troy Franklin.

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) missed the first game of his career in last week's win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but he returned to full practice this week and will suit up for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. With both Mims and Courtland Sutton (concussion) out last week, Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught two passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. Denver has nothing to play for on Sunday, so expect Mims and other young players to get more run against the division-rival Raiders. It doesn't mean the 21-year-old will be a worthwhile low-cost DFS play, though, especially with quarterback Jarrett Stidham making another start. In his first 15 NFL games, Mims has produced just 21 receptions on 32 targets for 361 yards and one touchdown.

It looks as though Denver Broncos wide receivers Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) will both be returning after one-game absences to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. Both wideouts were upgraded to full participants in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Sutton and Mims still need to gain final clearance from the league's concussion protocol before Sunday, but it appears they are well on their way. The 28-year-old Sutton is sitting at only 770 receiving yards on 58 catches over 15 games this year, but he's scored a career-high 10 touchdowns. However, all that damage came with quarterback Russell Wilson, who is now benched. With Jarrett Stidham starting, Sutton is a DFS receiver to fade if he's active in Week 18.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (concussion) and Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) were both able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday ahead of their team's Week 18 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. Sutton and Mims both missed Denver's Week 17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers but appear to be on the right track heading into the regular-season finale. That being said, the Broncos are already eliminated from playoff contention so they could opt to err on the side of caution and hold their receivers out of action in Week 18. Stay tuned to both players' final injury statuses heading into the weekend. Jerry Jeudy, Brandon Johnson, and Lil'Jordan Humphrey served as the team's top receivers last week and would presumably do so again this weekend if Sutton and Mims don't play.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring), who had been listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday, is officially inactive for Week 17 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. The 21-year-old has accrued 21 catches, 361 yards, and one touchdown while also playing a key role on special teams over the course of 15 games in his rookie campaign. Denver finds itself shorthanded at wide receiver with Mims and Courtland Sutton (concussion) sidelined, leaving Jerry Jeudy as Denver's top receiver for this divisional clash.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) isn't expected to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. The rookie has 361 yards and a touchdown off 21 receptions this season, making him the third-most productive wideout for Denver. With Courtland Sutton (concussion) out in Week 17, Mims could have gotten more involved. However, now that Mims is out of the equation, Jerry Jeudy (illness), who is expected to play, should see even more attention. There's also room for guys like Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Brandon Johnson, and Adam Trautman to receive extra targets. But with Jarrett Stidham under center, nobody on the offensive side of the ball can be trusted to be a viable source of fantasy production.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) is currently considered as questionable for the upcoming Week 17 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. The rookie wideout popped up on the injury report on Thursday. Mims was a limited participant on Thursday, but didn't practice at all on Friday. Given the Broncos current situation, it wouldn't be shocking to see them sit Mims if he's not 100 percent healthy. The fantasy value for this offense has dropped quite a bit with Jarrett Stidham expected to be under center. It's probably best to avoid Mims even if he's active for this game.

Dec 28 7:50pm ET

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring) was added to the Week 17 injury report on Thursday following his limited practice. It remains to be seen if Mims' downgrade in practice status is an actual injury that could keep him from playing this Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers or if it's something more minor and he was just being rested on Thursday. We should know more on the 21-year-old's status on Friday. If he plays, Mims could be in line for a bigger role if Courtland Sutton is unable to clear the league's concussion protocol. Even if Sutton is inactive and Mims is active, the young speed pass-catcher should be avoided in starting fantasy lineups in Week 17 with quarterback Jarrett Stidham now running the Broncos' offense.

Dec 16 11:30am ET

Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. could very well get behind the Detroit Lions secondary for a big play in Week 15's Saturday night showdown, but it's also pretty unlikely. Mims has mainly been a special-teams standout as a kick returner in his first NFL season. On the offensive side, he made most of his noise in 2023 early in the year and has totaled only 18 catches for 298 yards and one touchdown on 26 targets over 13 games. The 21-year-old speedster saw a brief uptick in involvement following the Week 9 bye, but he was back down to 37% of the offensive snaps played last week and hasn't caught more than two passes or exceeded 47 receiving yards in a game since the team's 50-point blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. Even though the Lions D is one of the better matchups for receivers, Mims doesn't belong in starting fantasy lineups in Week 15.
