2018 Fantasy Outlook
Denver's coaching staff worked with Hamilton during the Senior Bowl and reportedly viewed him as the soundest route runner of the bunch before selecting him in the fourth round. He never came close to matching the 82 receptions he had as a freshman, the potential product of a Penn State offense that rode Saquon Barkley. That said, he did manage to score nine touchdowns as a senior, matching the combined total from his first three seasons. Though not a burner, Hamilton's refined routes, strong hands and experience in the slot could make him an early contributor. He ranked second among the draft's receiver in team quarterback rating when targeted in the slot in 2017, per Pro Football Focus. Read Past Outlooks

Has future as underneath target

January 3, 2019
Hamilton finished 2018 having caught 30 of 46 targets for 243 yards and two touchdowns.
ANALYSIS
During training camp, some thought that Denver's fourth-round pick Hamilton, and not the team's second-rounder Courtland Sutton, was destined to be Denver's No. 3 receiver in 2018. In the end, Sutton's raw, big-play ability won out and Hamilton struggled to find a rhythm and missed extended time with a MCL sprain. His abilities as a savvy underneath target showed through down the stretch, however, as he averaged 6.25 catches off of 9.5 targets per game during the season's final four weeks following Emmanuel Sanders' season-ending Achilles' injury. Hamilton scored both of his touchdowns on the season during that span. Sanders may return to provide an established threat in 2019, but it's easy to see a Denver passing attack that is eventually based around attacking with fellow youngsters Sutton and Tim Patrick down the sidelines and deep while Hamilton and his much-hyped route-running takes hold of the middle of the field.
