Broncos | John Elway confident in Paxton Lynch

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:18:55 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch could become a starting quarterback a lot sooner than most people believe, according to general manager John Elway. "Is that going to happen tomorrow? Probably not, but you never know when it can happen," Elway said. "We think he's going to be ready quicker than a lot of people think." Elway said the team selected Lynch because of his athletic ability and strong arm.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is expected to compete for the starting job during training camp but is not the favorite for the job. He could see playing time in 2016 if Mark Sanchez struggles early. Lynch will not be a strong fantasy option if he plays this upcoming season but should be valuable in keeper leagues.

Broncos | Coach excited about Paxton Lynch

Fri, 06 May 2016 15:03:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is a player that head coach Gary Kubiak is excited about, but Kubiak said Lynch has a long way to go before he can be a starting quarterback. Kubiak indicated Lynch looked a little overwhelmed during practice Friday, May 6, but believes Lynch will pick things up quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch should have a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job, but Mark Sanchez probably will be the favorite entering training camp. Lynch would not be a great fantasy option if he wins the starting job and would be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues. Lynch should be valuable in keeper leagues since he should start in a year or two.

Broncos | Paxton Lynch working under center

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:07:20 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch took all of his snaps under center during practice Friday, May 6. Lynch played in a spread offense over the last few seasons but has been working under center since his 2015 season at Memphis ended. He said he is familiar with the offense since it is similar to what Memphis used when he was a freshman, but the terminology is more complicated.

Fantasy Tip: It is believed that Lynch will be given the chance to compete for the starting job during training camp, but he probably will need some time before he is ready to start in the NFL. Lynch could be an attractive option in keeper leagues but would not be a great option in standard leagues even if he wins the starting job.

However, Miller isn't expected to show up for workouts this week.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez staying focused

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:57:19 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still views himself as a starting quarterback and believes Denver drafting QB Paxton Lynch was affirmation of his starting status. "Absolutely, that's the message I've received," Sanchez said. "I'm thrilled with the opportunity."

Sanchez hasn't let Lynch or any potential trades change his focus. "I just kind of learned with time, who knows what's going to happen and who cares? What are you supposed to do? Meet your teammates, develop a relationship with them, learn the playbook, get involved in the community, that's it, those three things."

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is certainly approaching this situation with maturity. He's probably the safer option as a starting quarterback for Denver, at least in 2016. Lynch appears to be the quarterback of the future. Neither Sanchez nor Lynch should be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback this season, though.

Broncos | Devontae Booker to play early?

Sun, 01 May 2016 18:56:46 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker should push for playing time as a rookie, according to beat writer Jeff Legwold.

Fantasy Tip: Booker figures to be more of a long-term option than Ronnie Hillman, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Booker take over as the third-down back. He is worth a late-round flier in PPR formats.

Broncos | Denver takes Devontae Booker

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:12:35 -0700

Former Utah RB Devontae Booker was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 136th pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Booker is of the same running back mold as Ronnie Hillman, and he gives the Broncos more versatility in the backfield. C.J. Anderson will still be the main man, and Hillman will play a significant complementary role, but Booker is a good deep sleeper consideration with more value in PPR formats.

Broncos | No Brian Hoyer for Denver

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:11:11 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez does have the edge right now and is the safer starting option for the Broncos in 2016. It's important for Lynch to become acclimated to Denver's offense and the feel of the NFL this year. Lynch is likely the future of Denver's quarterback position, but his growth process will take some time. Sanchez is not a QB1 and should only be started as a bye-week replacement in good matchups.

Broncos | Paxton Lynch to compete for starting gig

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:48:11 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will compete with QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian for the starting job, according to executive vice president John Elway.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez should be considered the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but he would be a lower-end QB2. Lynch has intriguing potential in dynasty and keeper leagues, but he may need at least a year to develop.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue big-name QB

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:28:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is no lock to start as a rookie, and even if he does beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting gig, he would be a low-end QB2.
