WR DaeSean Hamilton - Denver Broncos
|6-1, 205||Born: 3-10-1995||College: Penn State||Drafted: Round 4, pick 2018|
Week 14: at Houston Texans
FBG says: Good matchup. Drew Lock's NFL debut went reasonably well as he led the Broncos to a win with 134 passing yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He made some great plays last week, but he also took few risks with just 4.8 passing yards per attempt while throwing an ugly interception in the fourth quarter. This pedestrian passing performance was nothing new for this Denver offense that ranks 31st in the league with just 187.4 passing yards per game and is tied for last with only 11 passing touchdowns. Courtland Sutton, on the other hand, had a huge day last week as he made up over half the total passing yards for this offense (74 of 134) while catching both touchdowns. Sutton has not consistently found the end zone by any means this season but he has been a consistently targeted option for this passing offense and has posted over 70 receiving yards in 8-of-12 games on the year. Beyond Sutton, it is tough to rely on anyone else for consistent production in this passing offense. The Texans own one of the worst passing defenses in football, giving up the fifth-most passing yards per game (262.9) and touchdowns (25). Quarterbacks have passed for three or more touchdowns against Houston in six of their last eight games, while the only two outliers with fewer than three touchdowns came against struggling Colts and Raiders passing offenses. They are lacking consistent pressure on quarterbacks with one or fewer sacks in five of the last seven games as this defensive line is indeed struggling without star edge rusher J.J. Watt. Play from their defensive backs has also been quite disappointing, especially as three of their starters continue to play through relatively recent injuries. Courtland Sutton will have a clear advantage in this one as the Texans should give Drew Lock a decent chance to excel in his second career start.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs LAC (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Hamilton worked out of the slot but couldn't draw many looks on a day were Courtland Sutton stole the show. He secured a couple of short passes and dropped an easy completion that could have gone for a score late in the 4th quarter.
2019 Week 12 vs BUF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hamilton worked into the receiver rotation, but posted yet another goose egg on one target.
2019 Week 8 vs IND (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hamilton posted a disappointing dud in the first game without Emmanuel Sanders on the roster. He did most of his work from the slot, and was out targeted and out snapped by Fred Brown.
2019 Week 7 vs KC (5 / 2 / 4 / 0 rec)
Hamilton worked as the third receiver, but couldn't get anything going as Flacco spent most of his night on the turf. Hamilton lost yardage on his first target of the game, a short out route. He picked up a few yards on a slant later in the same drive. Rumors are circulating that the Broncos might be fielding offers for Emmanuel Sanders, which would definitely be a boost for Hamilton's value. Hamilton sports a similar skill set to Sanders- fast, sharp routes out of the slot with good run after the catch ability, but also the speed to make plays downfield.
2019 Week 6 vs TEN (2 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Even with Emmanuel Sanders sitting out the second half with a knee injury, Hamilton was targeted just twice. He caught a curl route from the slot and turned it upfield for a few extra yards in the 3rd quarter. He did sniff the end zone as he was tackled at the 5 yard line on a crossing route in the 3rd quarter.
2019 Week 5 vs LAC (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hamilton was active, but didn't draw any targets on a day that didn't ask much of Flacco or the passing game.
2019 Week 4 vs JAX (5 / 3 / 57 / 0 rec)
Hamilton worked well out of the slot, showing off a diverse skill set on several impressive plays. He made a nice double move on an out and up route in the 2nd quarter and an impressive catch as he leaped over his defender, bringing the ball in for a 28 yard gain. He had another catch on a slant route in the 3rd. Hamilton snagged a short dumpoff pass from Flacco and turned it into a big gain up the left sideline with some nifty running in the 4th quarter.
2019 Week 2 vs CHI (6 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Hamilton worked as the third receiver behind Sanders and Sutton, pulling in a couple of short completions in the second half of the game. He was targeted in the end zone by Flacco on a deep crossing route in the 3rd quarter.
2019 Week 1 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Hamilton's first catch was part luck, part great reflexes as Courtland Sutton cut in front of him on a slant route and deflected the ball, where Hamilton deftly plucked it from the air for a short gain. Hamilton was forced out of bounds on what was nearly a beautiful toe-tapping catch later in the 2nd quarter. Hamilton caught one more pass for no gain in the 3rd quarter as Flacco threw behind him on what could have been a big play. Hamilton's biggest play of the night was a bad one, as he dropped a touchdown at the end of the 3rd quarter, forcing the Broncos to settle for a field goal.
