Denver Broncos tight end Joel Dressen is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. We break down the fantasy implications.
Denver Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Dreessen is dealing with a rib injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. He should be ready to play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Dreessen has not been one of Peyton Manning's top options in the passing game this season. Jacob Tamme has gotten the majority of looks at the tight end position, so Dreessen does not have much fantasy value. Unless you are in a league that starts an abnormal amount of tight ends, leave Dreessen on the bench.
