Weekly Writeup
Bridgewater posted 288-2-1 last week, but it came with a season-high in pass attempts (38). Next up is a strong Vegas pass rush that’s also improved in the back-end. Jerry Jeudy remains out with his high-ankle sprain.

Week 4
Bridgewater threw for 65 yards and a TD, completing 7 of his 16 attempts. These pedestrian numbers are due in large part to the QB being forced from the game at halftime due to a concussion.

It seems, at least as of now, that Drew Lock will start in Week 5. After taking over for Bridgewater, Lock completed 12 of 21 passes for 113 yards.

Bridgewater had been a serviceable option that most importantly facilitated fantasy points for his pass catchers. Lock can open this offense up but also provides a much lower floor.
Week 3
With Denver rolling 26 to 0 this week, Teddy Bridgewater’s 19-of-25 for 235 yards makes a ton of sense. He wasn’t asked to be aggressive with the ball or do too much. It was a run heavy game with a bit of passing mixed in.

This game featured his lowest passing yardage total and was the first time he failed to throw a passing TD. He had 2 TDs in each of the first 2 games.

Going forward, Bridgewater is an option in deeper formats or 2-QB leagues. He can be fine, but considering he will be down K.J. Hamler for the season and Jerry Jeudy for a few more weeks, his bevy of weapons is dwindling. Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant and Tim Patrick can be fine in plus matchups. But with a stellar Bronco defense, Bridgewater will be tasked with keeping the train on the tracks and not much more than that in the majority of contests.
Week 2
For the 2nd game in a row, the Broncos ran about 65+ plays and threw on just about half of them. Of course, playing with a lead again helped to keep the offense balanced, which allowed Bridgewater to be the most effective version of himself. With Jerry Jeudy out with an ankle injury, the QB leaned heavily on Courtland Sutton. Although they failed to connect on 2 big plays early, the chemistry came, and they accounted for almost half of the team’s passing yardage. Bridgewater also connected on TD passes to Noah Fant and Tim Patrick, but one of the missed connections to Sutton kept from adding a 3rd TD.
It's tough to complain about a start that has Bridgewater averaging 300 yards and 2 TDs. But playing with leads in both games has allowed him to play within himself. He also has excellent targets in Sutton and Fant, and hopefully before long, Jeudy, so the run after the catch ability they possess could help his weekly yardage totals despite moderate pass attempts. In addition, the offensive line is coached up very well by Mike Munchak, and the QB will likely have reliable protection to keep him from making too many mistakes.
Week 1
The Denver Bridgewater experience turned into a success after a Week 1 victory on the road against the Giants as the 7-year vet totaled 264 pass yards and 2 TDs on 28-of-36 passing. He connected with WR Tim Patrick for his first TD just before the half and followed up with a great 4th-down conversion pass to TE Albert Okwuegbunam that crippled the Giants’ hopes for a comeback — both of which required nifty footwork and great throws. Teddy hooked up with 9 different receivers, including 6 with at least 3 receptions. He looked most comfortable throwing to WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant (6 receptions each). He also added 19 yards on the ground.
Bridgewater is never going to be a top-tier QB despite the talent around him, but he continues to serve well as a QB2 in most formats. There is nothing flashy with his play and he usually makes sound decisions, which keeps his floor fairly high. He has a tasty matchup this weekend against a Jaguars squad that just gave up 37 points to a bad Houston team.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Bridgewater averaged 249 yards, 1 TD and .7 INTs on a 69.1% completion rate and 7.6 yards per attempt in 15 games for the Panthers last year.
  • He ranked 5th in completion rate and 11th in yards per attempt among 35 qualifying QBs.
  • Bridgewater’s career 66.5% completion rate ranks 3rd among 36 active QBs with 1,000+ attempts. His 7.3 yards per attempt ranks 16th.
  • The Broncos traded a 6th-round pick to Carolina for Bridgewater in April.
  • Barring a move for Aaron Rodgers, Bridgewater and Drew Lock will compete for the starting job this summer. HC Vic Fangio said those 2 will split reps “50/50” in training camp.
  • Bridgewater has been more efficient than Lock (59.1% completion rate, 6.6 yards per attempt) through this point in their careers.
  • Bridgewater beat Lock in Pro Football Focus passing grade each of the past 2 years.
  • Bridgewater has been more conservative than Lock. His average depth of throw in his 4 seasons with 100+ pass attempts: 7.9, 7.5, 6.1 and 7.6. Lock’s average depth of throw last year: 9.7.
  • If Bridgewater wins the starting job, he’ll be working with a strong group of pass-catchers in Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant, Tim Patrick and K.J. Hamler.
  • Bridgewater has averaged 13.7 rushing yards in 45 career games in which he’s played 90+% of the snaps. That’s a full-season pace of 220 yards that would have ranked 15th among QBs last year.
  • OC Pat Shurmur returns for his 2nd season with the Broncos in 2021.
    • The 2020 Broncos ranked 19th in pass attempts and 20th in pass rate.
    • Shurmur has tended to be a pass-leaning play caller, with 9 of his previous 11 NFL offenses finishing top 16 in pass attempts.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line

Bridgewater and Drew Lock will duke it out for the Broncos’ starting QB job this summer. There’s no doubt that Bridgewater has been better as a pro so far. So if Lock doesn’t take a big step forward, Bridgewater should win the battle.

If he does, he’ll have some spot-start appeal thanks to Denver’s strong group of pass-catchers and some rushing ability.
