Cody Latimer caught one pass for four yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.
Latimer should have had a touchdown on a slant in the second quarter, but the pass bounced off his hands. Latimer has reportedly shown well in practice, but he once again struggled to show up in a game. With Emmanual Sanders and Demaryius Thomas ahead of him on the depth chart, Latimer will need an injury to become a consistent fantasy option. He has six receptions for 61 yards this preseason.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said "everything's in place" for WR Cody Latimer to "have a big year."

With Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders missing time during OTAs and training camp, Latimer has run with the starters for most of the offseason. He has reportedly made several big plays in practice, but he has yet to show that playmaking ability in the preseason. Latimer will struggle to make a consistent fantasy impact behind Sanders and Thomas, but he will be a hot commodity if either goes down.

Cody Latimer caught one pass for eight yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

It was his only target of the night. Latimer was starting in place of Emmanuel Sanders, who was out with a hamstring injury. The second-year wideout has done everything the Broncos have asked him to this preseason. Unfortunately, Latimer won't reach his full fantasy potential unless Sanders or Demaryius Thomas misses extended time.

Cody Latimer caught four balls for 49 yards in the Broncos' preseason opener Friday night.

Latimer was the go-to receiver with Brock Osweiler, who started the game with Peyton Manning resting. Latimer made difficult catches both along the sideline and in the middle of the field. Despite a nonexistent rookie year, Latimer remains a high-ceiling talent who is simply blocked in Denver right now.

Cody Latimer is making "catch after catch" through the first few days of Broncos camp.

Per team reporter Andrew Mason, Latimer has been impressive every day so far. It's certainly a good sign after he played just 37 snaps as a rookie and confirmation that he has the No. 3 wideout job locked. The concern is that new schemer Gary Kubiak loves two-tight-end sets and Peyton Manning's volume will dip sharply this year. Neither Demaryius Thomas nor Emmanuel Sanders has missed a game since 2011.

Coach Gary Kubiak said he's "really excited" about second-year WR Cody Latimer.

"I’m really excited about what he can bring and I know he’s a lot better now than when he started," Kubiak said. "I’m excited moving forward." While Demaryius Thomas held out of all offseason team activities as he searched for a new contract, Latimer was the one working opposite Emmanuel Sanders with Peyton Manning and the first-team offense. That's something he rarely got to do as a rookie. "I think that this is going to be the year that he jumps on to the map -- on to the scene," Sanders said. "I think he’s going to have a big year." Latimer should be a fixture on offense in three-wide sets with Sanders kicking inside.

Cody Latimer believes he lost snaps to Andre Caldwell last season because he didn't know what he was doing on the field.

Latimer has vowed to not let that happen this year, immersing himself in Gary Kubiak's playbook and attending Peyton Manning's workouts at Duke. During OTAs and minicamp, Latimer ran with the first-stringers in place of unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas. As long as Latimer stays on course at training camp, he'll enter the season as the No. 3 wideout.

According to Yahoo's Charles Robinson, Broncos WR Cody Latimer "checked out mentally" during his rookie season.

Latimer has an abundance of physical tools, but wasn't mentally bought in as a rookie. Robinson reports Latimer was "unmotivated" by his low depth-chart standing, and took "a laid back approach to pretty much everything that comes along with NFL preparation." While the 2015 offseason reports have been glowing, this is an obvious red flag for Latimer's short- and long-term outlooks.

Cody Latimer is soaking up first-team reps at Broncos OTAs as unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas stays away from workouts.

"There's going to have to be some young receivers (who) really step up, and Cody's one of those guys," coach Gary Kubiak said. "I think it's a very competitive situation right now. But, yes, it's an important month for Cody." The 56th overall pick in last May's draft, Latimer runs 4.44 at 6-foot-3, 215 and has a 39-inch vertical. He projects as Denver's No. 3 receiver this year.
May 27 - 9:21 PM

Cody Latimer says he saw so little playing time as a rookie because he didn't fully grasp Peyton Manning's offense.

It's not particularly surprising. The Broncos also had wideouts in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders that were simply better than Latimer. "It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer acknowledged. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower." Latimer worked out with Manning at Duke University this offseason and is in position to be Denver's No. 3 receiver.

Cody Latimer worked out with Peyton Manning at Duke University this offseason.

Earning Peyton's trust is a good idea, especially as Denver institutes a new offense. Latimer only saw four targets last season, but that's sure to rise with Wes Welker out of the picture. Despite immense physical tools, we remain skeptical Latimer will see enough 2015 opportunity for stable WR3 value.

Emmanuel Sanders said Cody Latimer is a "special player" and thinks "this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene."

Latimer is drawing rave reviews from virtually everyone in the organization and is entrenched as the No. 3 wideout. He'll play outside in three-wide formations, with Sanders kicking into the slot. However, we'd be more excited about a statistical leap if Gary Kubiak didn't prefer "12" formations and the Broncos weren't planning on reducing Peyton Manning's volume. Latimer's snap and target count are a concern.

The Broncos are expected to line up in three-wide formations less often this season.

New coach Gary Kubiak prefers to execute his run-first, play-action scheme out of two-tight end personnel. That hasn't been Peyton Manning's style in the past, but it has to be now with his arm in such decline. Cody Latimer is still a very exciting prospect as a talented No. 3 wideout in an explosive offense, but he'll need an injury to Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders in order to realize a true breakout.

Apr 2 - 8:23 AM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak expects second-year WR Cody Latimer to "make a big jump" in 2015.

"He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice," Kubiak said. "I think as the year went on he just showed he's got a lot of skill." The Broncos have made it clear they want Latimer to be their No. 3 wideout after limiting him to 37 snaps as a rookie. With Wes Welker no longer in Denver, Latimer projects as the outside receiver in three-wide formations across from Demaryius Thomas, with Emmanuel Sanders in the slot.
Mar 28 - 3:15 PM

VP John Elway has made it "pretty clear" the Broncos would like Cody Latimer to be their No. 3 wideout in 2015.

Demaryius Thomas will be the No. 1, Emmanuel Sanders the No. 2 and the hope is that Latimer makes enough strides as an NFL sophomore to be No. 3. That would normally be a really exciting role for a player in a Peyton Manning offense, but we're expecting more two-wide formations and run-centric gameplans from new head coach Gary Kubiak. Still, Latimer is in position to make a major statistical leap after he played just 37 snaps as a rookie.
