Healthy and lean at OTAs

Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-25

Wilson (knee) is participating in OTAs and said he feels "leaner and meaner" after losing some weight in the offseason, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Fitness was the least of his problems last year, but it's at least good to hear Wilson is healthy and feeling strong after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee this winter. The Denver offense has a bunch of other players coming back from more serious injuries/surgeries, namely RB Javonte Williams (ACL), LT Garret Bolles (broken leg) and WRs Tim Patrick (ACL) and KJ Hamler (torn pectoral). Even so, Wilson should be set up better under new coach Sean Payton than he was last year with Nathaniel Hackett, aided by pricey additions at left guard (Ben Powers) and right tackle (Mike McGlinchey) and a second-round pick at wide receiver (Marvin Mims). Any issues with the knee didn't seem to impact Wilson's mobility much last year, as a 55-277-3 rushing line in 15 games was an improvement from 43-183-2 in 14 games his final season in Seattle.

Recovering from knee procedure

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-22

Wilson, who is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee that he underwent after the end of the 2022 season, is expected to be healthy for OTAs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Wilson is reportedly already working out and throwing following his knee procedure, so he doesn't seem to be carrying any lingering health concerns heading into the offseason program. The Broncos are hoping that new head coach Sean Payton will be able to facilitate a bounce-back season from Wilson in 2023, after the nine-time Pro Bowler finished with just 3,524 passing yards and a 16:11 TD:INT over 15 games during his first year in Denver.

Positive end to poor season

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-08

Wilson completed 13 of 24 passes for 283 yards with three touchdowns and one interception and rushed eight times for 18 yards in the Broncos' 31-28 in over the Chargers on Sunday.

Wilson's efficiency was off the charts in terms of completion-to-yardage ratio, the product of averaging 11.8 yards per attempt. The veteran signal-caller's touchdown passes went to the unorthodox trio of Eric Tomlinson (three yards), Tyler Badie (24 yards) and Courtland Sutton (20 yards), but he still took a pair of sacks and struggled with his accuracy. Wilson has already vowed to do a top-to-bottom evaluation of his offseason preparation in order to put together an exponentially better 2023, and rumblings that offensive guru Sean Payton will be discussing the team's head coaching job with Broncos brass gives the multi-time Pro Bowler's outlook a potential boost for the time being.

Three total touchdowns in loss

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01

Wilson completed 26 of 38 pass attempts for 222 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs. He added 27 rushing yards and two touchdowns on four attempts.

After a disastrous Week 16, Wilson bounced back with his second solid fantasy performance against Kansas City this season. Prior to Sunday, the veteran rushed for just one touchdown all season. Wilson's mobility has always been a major part of his game, so the use of his legs to find the end zone was certainly a welcome sight. With that said, the Broncos have a lot to figure out on offense ahead of next season with Wilson at the helm. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Wilson plans to examine his preparation and offseason routine to avoid having another disappointing season. If the 34-year-old signal caller can stack this outing with another strong fantasy performance in Week 18 against the Chargers, it may give fantasy managers a glimmer of hope for Wilson to have a possible resurgence next season.
