Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is not expected to play in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders due to a hamstring injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

A former first-round pick, Jeudy was injured in late August, making this a tough turnaround for him to be ready for Week 1. Courtland Sutton should receive a major boost in fantasy and the prop market with Jeudy expected to be out. 

Jerry Jeudy injury status for Week 1 game against Las Vegas Raiders

Jeudy is listed as questionable for Week 1, but he is not expected to suit up against the Raiders. If he had been able to play, Jeudy would have recovered in less than three weeks from his hamstring injury.

Best prop bet for Denver Broncos if Jerry Jeudy is out

Courtland Sutton OVER 55.0 receiving yards

Someone has to catch the ball for the Broncos, and Sutton is the most likely answer with the team’s No. 2 receiver in this game likely being rookie Marvin Mims. I also think second-year tight end Greg Dulcich should be heavily involved. 

Sutton cleared 55 receiving yards in eight games last season despite Denver’s offense being one of the worst in the league. I think he can put together a strong game in Week 1 in Sean Payton’s offense. 

Whether you want to tail or fade this prop for Sutton, DraftKings Sportsbook has an offer for bettors to win either way on Sunday.

Raiders-Broncos spread moves following Jerry Jeudy injury news

The Broncos were four-point favorites against the Raiders earlier this week, but that line has moved down to 3.5 with the news that Jeudy is likely out. 

Denver will have to find other answers at receiver with Tim Patrick done for the season and Jeudy nursing this hamstring injury.

When he’s on the field, Jeudy is probably the most-talented receiver on this Denver team. The issue is that he’s missed time in each of the last two seasons.

  • Sept. 2020: Chest Rib Sprain/Pull – did not miss time
  • Nov. 2020: Shoulder – did not miss time
  • Nov. 2020: Pedal Ankle Sprain/Pull – did not miss time
  • Sept. 2021: Pedal Ankle (high) Sprain Grade 3 – went on IR, missed six games

  • Aug. 2023: Thigh Hamstring Strain Grade 2 – expected to miss Week 1
