Broncos HC Vic Fangio plans to split reps evenly between QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock this offseason. "It will be something that at the end of the day, maybe not at the end of every day but over the course of OTAs and training camp, it’ll be 50-50," Fangio said. That suggests that this is a wide-open competition. Lock and Bridgewater could hardly be more different: Lock an aggressive gunslinger, Bridgewater and more conservative but accurate passer. We'll see how this shakes out, but neither guy can be considered more than a QB3 in best-ball drafts right now. Of course, whoever wins the job will have some fantasy upside thanks to Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Noah Fant.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Panthers are trading QB Teddy Bridgewater to the Broncos for a 6th-round pick. That seems like a surprisingly small price, but Bridgewater is due nearly $23 million this year and would still carry $5 million in dead money on the 2022 cap if released after this season. His departure clears the way for Sam Darnold to take over the offense -- if Carolina doesn't go QB in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. In Denver, we'd bet on a competition between Bridgewater and Drew Lock for the starting gig. This trade might not necessarily take the Broncos out of the NFL Draft QB market. But it at least suggests they don't expect to land a 2021 starting candidate at the position. Bridgewater threw just 15 TD passes in his lone season with Carolina. If he earns the starting job in Denver, he'll find a talent-rich set of pass-catchers that includes Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant and K.J. Hamler.
Broncos QBs Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles have tested negative for COVID and been cleared to return to the team. Lock will be back under center for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. That puts guys like WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant back in play for Week 12 fantasy lineups.
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 (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. We’re not expecting the rib injury to be a factor — but Lock is a low-end QB2 vs. a tough Miami pass defense.
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 (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. He reportedly looked good in Friday’s practice and seems on track to start. But Lock is a lower-end QB2 vs. a sneaky tough Miami pass defense.
Broncos QB Drew Lock has a "chance" to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lock is reportedly dealing with an injury to a muscle around his ribs -- "kind of an oblique-type injury," Rapoport adds. Lock isn't expected to do much in practice on Wednesday but should get out there on Thursday and/or Friday. We'll monitor his progress.
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.
