2019 Fantasy Outlook
Entering the final quarter of the season, the 2018 fourth-rounder had just five receptions for 61 yards to his name. Following the season-ending injury to Emmanuel Sanders, Hamilton blossomed - leading the Broncos with 25 receptions during the season's final four games. He averaged just 7.3 yard per catch during that span and though he doesn't have the kind of straight-line speed that can take the top off of a defense, his game depends more on sharp routes than athleticism. If Courtland Sutton is able to stress defenses up the sideline and rookie Noah Fant controls the seam, Hamilton could become a high-volume target underneath for Joe Flacco. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Hamilton returned healthy for the Broncos' offseason program, seemingly destined for a key role after the team did little to upgrade its wideout group this spring. The 2018 fourth-round pick frequently operated from the slot as a rookie, handling a much larger role after Emmanuel Sanders suffered a torn Achilles in early December. Hamilton averaged 70 snaps, 9.5 targets and 6.3 catches over the final four weeks, yet he landed between 40 and 49 receiving yards in each game while almost strictly catching short passes. He produced 16.2 yards per catch and nine touchdowns during his senior season at Penn State, so there's potential for more downfield impact. Hamilton's role in 2019 will partially depend on the health of Sanders, who also saw frequent slot work last season. Courtland Sutton appears locked in for one starting job outside, with Tim Patrick also a candidate for snaps. The quarterback situation doesn't appear any better than it was last season, featuring 34-year-old Joe Flacco and rookie second-round pick Drew Lock in place of the departed Case Keenum.

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.
