Denver Broncos Stock DOWN
WR Jerry Jeudy
It is no secret that fourth-year receiver Jerry Jeudy had a rough performance in Los Angeles following a noisy week in the media. Just a week after displaying visible frustration over a lack of targets in Houston, Jeudy failed to capitalize off of multiple opportunities that quarterback Russell Wilson awarded him throughout the game. Jeudy failed to properly catch a deep ball in the first half and also failed to keep both of his feet in bounds on what would have been a touchdown reception to end the first half. Overall, it was certainly a forgettable performance for the former first-round pick with high expectations.
CB Fabian Moreau
While he certainly did not have the worst performance, veteran cornerback Fabian Moreau is starting to finally show some weaknesses against opposing offenses. In back-to-back weeks, Moreau has been beaten in man coverage for significant deep balls that have resulted in touchdown drives. If not for allowing a 57-yard reception to Chargers first-round pick Quentin Johnston, the Broncos would have likely shut out the Chargers on the road.
Johnston, covered by Moreau, also went on to total three receptions for 91 yards in the contest having the best game of his rookie season, despite being labeled as an early bust by NFL fans and media. Moreau's coverage against deep-route running will certainly have to improve if he wishes to re-sign with the Denver Broncos in 2024.
