QB - DEN
Week 2 Outlook
Drew Lock completed 22-of-33 passes for 216 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' 16-14 loss to the Titans Monday night. He added three rushes for five yards.
Lock showed great mobility in the pocket Monday and made some nice plays. His inexperience also showed at moments in missed easy completions and two fumbles he was fortunate not to lose. The offense looked competent Monday and will be better with Courtland Sutton (shoulder) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) back soon from injury. Lock is a solid QB2/3 in superflex formats.
QB Drew Lock has been throwing to WR Jerry Jeudy daily at an area field in Denver.
Lock has had throwing sessions with Jeudy the past two weeks at an area field in Denver. The Broncos’ facilities should be opening sometime in the near future. Lock is entering his first year as the Broncos’ starting QB and is building a rapport with the rookie wideout. Jeudy is expected to start opposite Cortland Sutton as Denver’s WR2. He is currently 54th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings, but a strong rapport with Lock will only increase his fantasy value.
John Elway told James Palmer in a recent interview that the Broncos are “going to build around Drew (Lock) and give him that opportunity to take the (starting) job.”
The Broncos are heading in to the upcoming Draft and the 2020 season with no plans to compete the starting quarterback job. Elway did state that “by no means has Drew made it.” But then he went on to say, “we believe he’s got the potential to do it (take the reigns as the starter and run the offense for the foreseeable future).” Lock was praised for his preparations on and off-the-field, and coming from a Hall of Fame quarterback, that praise certainly has legs to stand on. Lock currently sits at #26 in the FantasyPros consensus rankings.
Broncos general manager John Elway told reporters that second-year player Drew Lock will continue to be the team's starting quarterback in 2020.
Lock showed some flashes in 2019, throwing five touchdown passes over his first two NFL games. However, he was less inspiring down the stretch with QBRs of 52.0 or less in each of his final three contests. While Lock isn't likely to be relevant in 1QB redraft leagues in 2020 -- currently QB27 based on our expert consensus -- he is an interesting player in dynasty leagues, especially those that use two quarterbacks.
Drew Lock completed 17-of-28 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday, He added six carries for 29 yards and lost one fumble.
Lock played an efficient game while winning his fourth game in five starts for Denver. He will be an intriguing late-round QB target next season.
