Over 300-yard mark in record loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-24

Wilson completed 23 of 38 passes for 306 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Broncos' 70-20 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

Wilson authored what could arguably be the quietest 300-yard performance in history within the context of the game setting it transpired in. The veteran signal-caller was naturally overshadowed by numerous individual standout efforts on the opposite sideline, and by Miami's NFL-record 70 points overall. However, zooming in on Wilson's performance reveals a second straight encouraging performance from the recently maligned multi-time Pro Bowler, who connected with seven different targets on the afternoon and tossed a 12-yard touchdown to Courtland Sutton in the first quarter. Wilson now has a 6:1 TD:INT through his first three games and back-to-back 300-yard efforts for the first time since Weeks 3 and 4 of the 2020 season, sending him into a Week 4 road matchup with the Bears with plenty of momentum.

Posts vintage line in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Wilson completed 18 of 32 pass attempts for 308 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-33 loss to Washington. He added 56 rushing yards on six attempts.

Wilson turned back the clock and posted a stat line we haven't seen since his days in Seattle. It was the first time the 34-year-old threw for 300 yards with multiple scores since joining Denver last season. Wilson came out with a more-aggressive mindset as a passer and runner following an underwhelming debut under head coach Sean Payton in Week 1. He connected for two deep scores to Marvin Mims Jr. and Brandon Johnson, and his 56 rushing yards would have been the second-highest total from his entire 2022 game log. Wilson can regain a chunk of his depleted fantasy value if he can maintain this playstyle going forward, starting with a road matchup against the Dolphins next Sunday.

Mistake-free but quiet in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Wilson completed 27 of 34 passes for 177 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and added one rush for one yard in the Broncos' 17-16 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Wilson's first full game running new head coach Sean Payton's scheme resulted in a largely unremarkable performance save for his pair of five-yard touchdown passes to Courtland Sutton and Lil'Jordan Humphrey. The veteran signal-caller's numbers were otherwise mostly indistinguishable and even less robust than many of his disappointing 2022 stat lines, and the fact the lackluster season-opening performance came against a vulnerable defense in that of the Raiders' adds to the fantasy-related concerns. However, the fact Wilson was without his presumptive No. 1 receiver in Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) certainly played a part in his modest numbers, and he'll have an opportunity to up his production in a Week 2 home matchup versus the Commanders.

Not expected to play

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-26

Wilson and most of Denver's other starters aren't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Wilson played in Denver's first two preseason games and completed 10 of 19 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. He may not have top receiver Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) in the lineup when the Broncos host the Raiders in Week 1.

Plays just one drive Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-19

Wilson completed three of his six pass attempts for 24 yards and rushed for 25 yards on three carries in Saturday's preseason tilt against San Francisco.

Head coach Sean Payton said that Wilson and the starters would see 20 to 24 snaps against the 49ers, but he wound up limiting his starting quarterback to the opening drive (10 plays). There is no injury to report here, as Payton may simply have changed his mind mid-game. Wilson didn't do much from the pocket, but he did break off a 17-yard scamper, something we have seen less of from the 34-year-old in the later stages of his career. Wilson saw his stock drop farther than any player following his putrid 2022 campaign, so expectations should be lowered heading into the second year of a five-year, $245 million contract.

Expected to play 20-24 snaps Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-17

Coach Sean Payton noted after Thursday's practice that Denver's starters are slated to play "somewhere between ''20 and 24 plays'' in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers, Jeff Legwold of reports. In last Friday's preseason opener against the Cardinals, Wilson logged 20 snaps.

It remains to be seen how the Broncos plan to use key players in their preseason finale, but this weekend the team's key healthy starters are once again in line to see work, with the report also noting that RB Javonte Williams -- who is bouncing back from ACL surgery -- is in line to see action on 10-12 plays. Against Arizona last week, Wilson completed seven of 13 pass attempts for 93 yards and a touchdown before being relieved by Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci.

Finishes first exhibition strong

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-12

Wilson completed seven of 13 pass attempts for 93 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason loss to the Cardinals.

Wilson and most of the starters wound up playing 22 snaps on offense (four drives) after head coach Sean Payton said that they would be limited to 15 prior to kickoff. Perhaps Denver's starters refused to end the day after their first drive resulted in a three-and-out, which was then followed by two missed field goals (12 and 40 yards) off the leg of new kicker Brett Maher. The decision to send the starters back out there a fourth time turned out to be a smart one when the 34-year-old drove down the field and threw a 21-yard strike to Jerry Jeudy for a touchdown, which completely shifted the narrative of how the starters looked under Payton for the first time. Wilson still has a long road ahead in terms of restoring his status as a superstar, or even as a starting option in fantasy, but this was a start.

Starters to see 15 snaps Friday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-07

Coach Sean Payton said Wilson and the Broncos' first-team offense are in line to see roughly 15 snaps during Friday's preseason opener against the Cardinals, Zac Stevens of reports.

Wilson will be on debut for the first time since his rough 2022 campaign Friday, albeit in limited preseason action. Still, it will be worthwhile to track whether Denver's offense is able to operate more smoothly with Payton calling the shots, even if only for a series or two. Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci will be in line to take the field after Wilson finishes up under center in Arizona.

In line to see preseason work

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-07

Coach Sean Payton noted Saturday that the Broncos' starters, including Wilson, are slated to see playing time during the preseason, Parker Gabriel of the Denver Post reports.

With that in mind, Wilson is among the team's healthy key players who are candidates to see snaps in Friday night's preseason opener against the Cardinals. In the event that he does log snaps in the contest, we wouldn't expect it to be a long appearance for Wilson, with fellow QBs Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci also on track to see action versus Arizona.
