Broncos first-round WR Jerry Jeudy‘s production has tailed off in recent weeks, as he has just four catches for 42 yards in his past three games. Though he was dancing on camera before this past week’s game against the Chiefs, Jeudy expressed frustration on Twitter after the game and another quiet night from a target standpoint. However, Broncos HC Vic Fangio said Jeudy is in good standing.
“Well, the last three games, the game before this past one [against the Saints] obviously he wasn’t going to get many balls thrown to him that day,” Fangio said via Denver 7’s Troy Renck. “I don’t think he’s hit the wall at all, I just think he’d like to have more catches and I don’t know of any receiver that doesn’t feel that way. I’m glad he’s a little frustrated that he’s not getting more production. We want our guys to feel that way. I don’t know what he said or didn’t say on Twitter, but I’m okay with Jerry. Jerry’s in a good spot.”

- Per Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star, Chiefs DB coach Sam Madison says they’ve been working practice squad CB Deandre Baker against the starting receivers in practice: “He has some skills. He has some tools. I see why he was a first-rounder.”
