Mims caught two of three targets for 24 yards and rushed once for 11 yards in Sunday's 29-12 win over the Browns.
Sunday marked Mims' second straight week with two grabs on three targets. The rookie's modest production with his opportunities shows that he has yet to truly be unleashed in Denver's offense. With that said, it appears that head coach Sean Payton is making an effort to get Mims more involved in the offense. Before the Broncos' Week 9 bye, the speedy wideout was averaging just a 29 percent offensive snap share. In the three games since the bye, his snap share average has increased to roughly 57 percent. As is the case with many rookie receivers, it's possible that Mims could push for more opportunities as the season progresses. Even so, the 21-year-old won't make for a trustworthy fantasy option in Week 13 against the Texans.

Mims brought in two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Vikings.
Mims operated as the Broncos' No. 3 wide receiver Sunday, as his 31 offensive snaps were behind just Courtland Sutton (44) and Jerry Jeudy (39). Despite the recent increase in his involvement, the rookie wideout's production has failed to catch up. The talent is there for Mims to make big plays for an offense that could use a spark, but it seems that working him into the scheme is not a major priority of the coaching staff. The 21-year-old will remain extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes when the Broncos host the Browns in Week 12.
Mims (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Coming out of Denver's Week 9 bye, Mims played a season-high 69 percent of the offensive snaps and ran 28 routes against the Bills on Monday but was targeted just once. The Broncos are a run-oriented offense, and Mims is behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy (hip/limited Thursday) in the target pecking order.
Mims (ankle) was listed as limited on Wednesday's practice estimate, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
In Monday's 24-22 win over the Bills, Mims logged a season-high 52 (of a possible 75) snaps on offense, while working alongside fellow WRs Courtland Sutton (65 snaps) and Jerry Jeudy (49 snaps). Despite the uptick in playing time, the rookie second-rounder didn't record a catch versus Buffalo and thus remains a speculative fantasy option in advance of this weekend's game against the Vikings.
Mims failed to catch his lone target and rushed once for minus-3 yards in Monday's 24-22 win over the Bills.
Though Mims' stat line was extremely disappointing Monday, his 69 percent offensive snap share was by far his highest of the season. In fact, the rookie wideout's 52 snaps ranked second among Denver's wideouts behind Courtland Sutton (65) and ahead of Jerry Jeudy (49). Mims is a talented receiver who pose can pose problems as a deep threat, so his increased playing time is a step in the right direction for the Oklahoma product. It appears the Broncos' coaching staff wants to get him more involved on offense, so it's possible the 21-year-old could see more targets start to come his way in the passing game. Mims will look to use his playmaking ability to take a step forward when the Broncos host the Vikings in Week 11.
Mims secured his only target for zero yards in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Chiefs.
Mims lone catch in the contest was his first grab since Week 5, albeit for no gain. The talented rookie wideout played on 40 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps Sunday, his highest snap share of the season. The increase in playing time was likely due to the absence of veteran Brandon Johnson (hamstring) being placed on injured reserve, as Johnson had played ahead of Mims for most of the season to this point. Even with added opportunity, Mims was an afterthought in Denver's offensive attack, as his one target was the fewest of any pass catcher who saw an opportunity through the air from Russell Wilson. The Broncos go on a bye in Week 9, but the 21-year-old will hope to be more involved in the passing game when Denver plays the Bills on Nov. 13.
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 staffs 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.
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 in undeniable, and its possible that things open up for him in coach Sean Payton's plans later in the season, but he is 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.
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.
