2019 Fantasy Outlook

$Signed a one-year, $501,000 contract with the Steelers in January of 2019. Waived by the Steelers in August of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Broncos in September of 2019.
Fumbles in win
WRDenver Broncos
November 4, 2019
Spencer caught one of three targets for no gain during Sunday's 24-19 win over Cleveland. He added a punt return of 20 yards, kick return of 17 yards and fumbled during the contest.
Spencer put his own defense in a bind midway through the second quarter when he took a screen deep in Denver's own territory and had the ball punched out as he was trying to wiggle up field. The optimist will note that Denver is trying to be creative in getting Spencer the ball, while the pessimist will point to Spencer's fumble and minimal offensive production this season and call him a returner rather than a true receiver. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Spencer's speed and elusiveness makes him an obvious candidate for gadget plays, but he probably won't see half of the Broncos' offensive snaps, like he did Sunday, in many future games. Tim Patrick's (hand) impending return from injured reserve should knock Spencer down the depth chart sometime shortly following next week's bye.
