We break down the news that KJ Hamler has a hamstring injury. What it means for Week 13 and beyond.

Friday update: After learning that Hamler had a setback with his hamstring, it was inevitable that he would be ruled out and he has. We can’t expect him back next week either.

Thursday update: Head coach Nathaniel Hackett told reporters that Hamler had a setback with his hamstring injury, per Mike Klis. It sounds like he will miss this week for sure and possibly more.

The Denver Broncos are not having the best luck with wide receiver injuries this season. Right now they have both Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler not practicing on Wednesday. Hamler’s hamstring injury has kept him out the last three games.

We knew Hamler would be out for a while, but with injured reserve being a four game stint, four games is usually when we start expecting an injured player to return to practice if he wasn’t placed on I.R. We’ll see if he can still get back to practice this week.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

With Jeudy and Hamler out, Kendall Hinton has seen a good amount of targets. The Broncos offense has been so bad that no one receiver has been able to become consistent of late. Jeudy had been the closest to that consistency. Courtland Sutton does see enough work to be a weekly start, but he has just one touchdown on the season, giving him a low floor.
