Broncos QB Russell Wilson went just 15-of-27 passing for 214 yards in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Rams. He tossed 1 TD vs. 3 INTs and took 6 sacks in the game. Wilson gave way to QB Brett Rypien for the team's final 2 possessions (1 of which produced a Rams pick-6). We'd bet on Wilson returning to the lineup for Week 17 against the Chiefs but would hope to not have to use him in fantasy football lineups.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. HC Nathaniel Hackett said Friday that Wilson has actually been medically cleared, but the team is holding him out as a precaution. QB Brett Rypien will make his 2nd start of the season this weekend.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He's looking unlikely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals, which would leave Brett Rypien under center.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson exited early in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs to be checked for a concussion. QB Brett Rypien has replaced him. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson has been ruled out with a concussion.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Friday morning that QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) will start Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars, barring a setback between now and then. Wilson, of course, had been struggling even before this hamstring injury. He's just a QB2 in Week 8 fantasy lineups, but we'd still consider him a tangible upgrade over QB Brett Rypien.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Monday that QB Russell Wilson is "trending" toward playing against the Jaguars in London on Sunday. Wilson missed Sunday's loss to the Jets with a partial hamstring tear. "He did everything he could to try to be there, but it was just a little early with that short week," Hackett added. "So hopefully, we’ll see him out there and if not, we’ll be smart with him too.” Denver does have a Week 9 bye following this game. We'll see if that factors into the starting-QB decision.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy led the team in targets (11), receptions (7) and receiving yards (96) in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He accounted for 23.9% of QB Brett Rypien's 43 pass attempts, 29.2% of his completions and 42.7% of the receiving yards. Rookie TE Greg Dulcich following, tying WR Courtland Sutton for 2nd on the team at 9 targets. He caught 6 of them for 51 yards. Sutton managed just 3 receptions for 23 yards. We'll see about QB Russell Wilson's status (hamstring) for a Week 8 visit to Jacksonville.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson has a partially torn hamstring, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That tends to be a multi-week injury, per Rapoport, so "there was virtually no chance" Denver was letting Wilson play vs. the Jets today. The Broncos play the Jaguars in London next week and then get a Week 9 bye, so it seems likeliest that Week 10 is the next time we see Wilson. We'll see how QB Brett Rypien fares today.

The Broncos plan to start QB Brett Rypien in Sunday’s game against the Jets. QB Russell Wilson will be out with his injured hamstring. That decision was reportedly made after a Saturday throwing session for Wilson. This matchup already looked good for the Jets’ D; it certainly doesn’t look any worse now. Check out the updated projections for the Rypien-led Broncos.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. HC Nathaniel Hackett called him a game-time decision on Friday. Wilson, of course, was struggling before dealing with this hamstring injury. Hopefully you don’t need him in Week 7 fantasy lineups. If Wilson is out this weekend, Denver would turn to QB Brett Rypien.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson's hamstring injury could be "fairly significant," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said Tuesday. Wilson is getting an MRI to get a better look at the damage, but it sounds like his status for at least Week 7 is in question. QB Brett Rypien is Denver's backup. We'll pass along an update on Wilson when we get one.

Broncos QB Drew Lock is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Chargers with a right shoulder injury. We'll update his status when we know more. QB Brett Rypien is in for Denver.

Update: Lock returned in the 2nd quarter.

Broncos QBs Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, Blake Bortles and Jeff Driskel are all ineligible to play against the Saints on Sunday due to COVID contract tracing concerns to Driskel, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We'll see whether this game gets played tomorrow -- and what the hell Denver does on offense if it does. Insider Mike Klis throws out Kendall Hinton as an option at QB. He's on Denver's practice squad as a WR but was a 3-year starting QB at Wake Forest. This is a mess and you should try to avoid all Broncos in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Broncos QB Drew Lock will start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, according to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. Lock is officially questionable with a rib injury, but it sounds like he has healed enough to play. That likely helps the upside of the Broncos' passing game -- assuming he's near full strength in what he can do.

Broncos QB Drew Lock is "uncertain" for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after suffering a rib injury in yesterday's loss to the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Denver would turn to either Brett Rypien or Jeff Driskel under center if Lock is out. We'll watch his practice participation this week.

Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Patriots. Insider Benjamin Allbright expects QB Brett Rypien to get the start vs. New England and Lock to return for Week 6. Avoid this situation in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's James Palmer hears that Broncos QB Brett Rypien will start Thursday night's game against the Jets. Rypien stepped in for QB Jeff Driskel vs. the Bucs last week, completing 8 of 9 passes for 53 yards and a INT in mop-up action. The 2019 undrafted free agent was a 4-year starter at Boise State, where he completed 64% of his passes, averaged 8.4 yards per attempt and compiled 90 TDs vs. 29 INTs. Maybe you take a shot on Rypien in a plus matchup in 1-game DFS contests -- but he's not a legitimate option in season-long fantasy lineups.
