DaeSean Hamilton’s Stretch Run Fantasy Upside as Broncos’ New Slot WR

In his first meaningful NFL action, Broncos rookie WR DaeSean Hamilton made a splash filling in for the recently lost Emmanuel Sanders. Manning the slot, Hamilton was peppered with 9 targets, hauling in 7 for 47 yards and a TD. Though this may seem like an out-of-nowhere performance to ignore, we’ve been documenting Case Keenum’s love for his slot weapons ever since August; in fact, this is what had us all-in on Sanders in the first place. Staring at a massive target void, with juicy matchups, and at only 7% owned, Hamilton could be a two-week rental that wins titles.

For those who missed this preseason: Keenum relentlessly targeted Adam Thielen out of the slot in Minnesota. The Vikings’ WR logged a 25% slot target share, which led all WRs in 2017 (per PFF). Moreover, Thielen’s 32% third-down target share trailed only Keenan Allen and tied DeAndre Hopkins. Meanwhile, Sanders was absolutely exploding throughout 2018, as he was fantasy’s No.12 WR before going down. Hamilton now slides right into this invaluable role, and if the first week was any indication, he could similarly thrive.

Yes, he’s no Sanders. Still, Hamilton brings some serious size to the seams at 6’1″ and runs consistent routes. He tracks the ball well downfield, can adjust his body to the catch point, and was constantly described as a high-character asset from all around him. Moreover, Hamilton has unfrightening matchups with Cleveland and Oakland to close out the 2018 fantasy year. For those hurting at WR yet still alive, give Hamilton a long look.
