The Broncos have named QB Trevor Siemian their starter. The news was 1st reported by 104.3 The Fan in Denver and has since been confirmed by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. HC Vance Joseph is expected to announce the decision later today. The team really had no choice here. QB Paxton Lynch hasn't taken a step forward in his 2nd season, struggling in practice and averaging an ugly 3.7 yards per attempt through 2 preseason games. Siemian, meanwhile, has been solid-if-unspectacular. He's connected on 14 of 18 preseason passes for 144 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs. Siemian is conservative but generally accurate and safe with the football. He ranked 26th among QBs in fantasy points per game last year and isn't more than a low-end QB2 in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian entered Saturday night's 2nd preseason game after QB Paxton Lynch but might have emerged from it atop the team's depth chart. Lynch threw for a lackluster 39 yards on 9-of-13 passing against the 49ers. He piloted 3 scoring drives, but they accounted for just 11, 26 and 12 total yards. Siemian then marched the team in for a TD -- a nice back-shoulder throw to WR Jordan Payton to beat coverage -- on his 1st possession. He finished 8-of-9 for 93 yards and a 128.2 QB rating (vs. Lynch's 72.3). Neither option looks stellar as a fantasy football target, but Siemian continues to look like the steadier play for Denver, which can't be a bad thing for the WRs' fantasy values.

Broncos HC Vance Joseph announced that QB Trevor Siemian will start Thursday night's preseason opener. But QB Paxton Lynch will start the 2nd exhibition. This remains an open competition. But Siemian drawing the 1st start does nothing to dispel this morning's report that he's in the lead. Preseason performance figures to determine who's under center come Week 1.

Yahoo's Charlie Robinson hears from Broncos staffers that Trevor Siemian is winning the team's QB competition "by default." He's been steady-if-unspectacular early in camp, while Paxton Lynch has failed to take a step forward. "If you believe the practice tape that others have watched, Lynch has lost every single practice session to Siemian," Robinson writes. "His sparse collection of good days has been – at best – on par with Siemian’s good days. Lynch’s bad days have been exponentially worse." Denver's front office would prefer their 2016 first-rounder to win this job, but they'll go with Siemian if he gives them a better chance to win. It sounds like that's still the case at this point. Neither of these guys is a fantasy option outside of 2-QB leagues, but Siemian is the target if you're dabbling in Broncos QBs.

What was originally believed to be a Grade 3 shoulder separation for Broncos QB Trevor Siemian turned out to be a Grade 5 injury. When he went under the knife in January, his doctor discovered torn ligaments where the clavicle, scapula and AC joint connect. Siemian was slapped with a 4-6 month recovery timeline but still expects to be ready for the start of OTAs in May. He's slated to compete for the starting job with 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch. It's certainly worth noting that Siemian played through the serious shoulder injury for much of this past season after it occurred in Week 4.

Siemian missed 1 game with a left foot sprain and another with a left shoulder sprain in 2016, his first year as a starter. He underwent minor left shoulder surgery after last season, a procedure that he called “optional.” He’ll battle Paxton Lynch for the starting gig this summer.
