Kendall Hinton questionable for Week 11 vs. Raiders

We break down the news that Kendall Hinton has a shoulder injury and isn’t practicing to start the week. What it means for Week 11 and beyond.

Friday update: Hinton is questionable. He will likely be a game-day decision. If he plays, he has some sleeper status with Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler out.

Friday update: Hinton returned to practice Friday, per Zac Stevens. We’ll see if this is enough practice time for him to play or not.

Thursday update: Hinton was once again missing from practice on Thursday, per Mike Klis. This is not a good sign for his availability this week. With Jerry Jeudy also missing practice on Thursday and K.J. Hamler out for a couple weeks, the receiver room is getting barren. Courtland Sutton, Jalen Virgil, Montrell Washington and TE Greg Dulcich are currently the only healthy pass catcher who saw the field last week.

The Denver Broncos will take on the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11 of the NFL season. Their offense has sputtered out of the gate as they are adjusting to having Russell Wilson under center. They have also dealt with several injuries, and this week will be no different. Wide receiver Kendall Hinton is dealing with a shoulder injury and will miss practice on Wednesday. This news comes on the heels of teammate KJ Hamler missing the next few games with his injury, so Hinton was expected to have an expanded role in the offense.

Fantasy football implications for Week 11

Hinton doesn’t usually have any fantasy value, but with Jerry Jeudy dealing with an ankle injury, he just might. Hinton saw a big bump with Jeudy injured last week against the Titans. He caught 4-of-5 targets for 62 yards in that matchup and will get to face possibly the worst pass defense in the NFL this week against the Raiders. But, if Jeudy plays, he would go back to fantasy benches.
