2021 Fantasy Outlook
After Denver's Week 5 bye, it appeared that there was a concerted effort to get Okwuegbunam involved in the passing game. The 2020 fourth-rounder recorded 10 catches on 14 targets, including four red zone targets, in the team's first three games after the bye. Part of that was due to an injury to Noah Fant, who missed the first game of the aforementioned stretch, but even when Fant returned in the following contest, Okwuegbunam put together his best performance, catching all seven of his targets for 60 yards. An ACL tear in Week 9 ended his rookie season early, but Okwuegbunam should be available for training camp and profiles as Denver's No. 2 tight end behind Fant. Read Past Outlooks

Knee - ACL
May 17, 2021
Okwuegbunam (knee) got limited on-field work in during Monday's practice, George Stoia of The Denver Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
Okwuegbunam is roughly five months removed from undergoing surgery to repair his torn right ACL. While he certainly isn't back to full health yet, it's encouraging to see the tremendously athletic tight end progressing well in his recovery. Coach Vic Fangio previously said that Okwuegbunam might not be fully healthy for the start of training camp, but it appears that he still could be on track for Week 1.

He enjoyed his two best collegiate seasons while playing with Lock, amassing 17 receiving touchdowns, and figures to be TE3 with some red-zone upside in Year 1.
