Broncos | Tavarres Kings continues to shine

Denver Broncos WR Tavarres King (thigh) has carried over his momentum from offseason workouts into training camp. He was troubled by a thigh injury for most of offseason workouts, but he is healthy now and turning heads. "He's done a good job. We didn't get to see a ton of him during (offseason workouts)," offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "But he's made some big plays down the field. He is catching the ball fairly consistently, and he's done a good job of not being the guy we are calling out to fix things. He studied his book, obviously, this summer and made sure he wasn't going to be the guy making mistakes."
That's high praise for a rookie. King looks to be the frontrunner for the fourth receiver job. Anywhere else, that might mean minimal fantasy appeal, but he should still have a handful of targets each week even with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Eric Decker healthy. If one of those guys go down to injury, remember the rookie for add-drops.
