9 News Denver reports that Broncos QB Mark Sanchez started practice as the first-string QB, but was benched after throwing an INT and was replaced by second-string QB Trevor Siemian. Siemian closed out practice with the rest of the first-string offense. (Source: 9 News Denver)
Fantasy Impact: This is probably just a motivational tactic, but it can’t be a good sign for Sanchez if the Broncos are willing to bench him over just one INT. Regardless of who wins the job, I would consider the Broncos starting QB undraftable even in the deepest leagues. I would also lower the value on WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders because of the poor QB situation.

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak told the media that Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will all receive "equal reps" during training camp. "The bottom line is we're gonna give them equal reps," Kubiak said. "It's an open competition. We've laid out our plan of how we're gonna rep them and those types of things so that we're getting an equal look at all of them. Tomorrow we line up. Mark's gonna go first, Trevor is gonna go second, Paxton is gonna go third. That will change on a day-to-day basis and how we do things. We just want to give them all an equal opportunity." Kubiak later indicated that there is no "timeline" on when he will make a decision on selecting a starter. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: Denver's quarterback position battle will heat up during training camp with Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch all working with the first-team. Early indications point to Sanchez emerging as the starter but a lot can change leading up to Week 1. Don't hesitate on selecting whoever is named the starter for the regular season in the upcoming fantasy draft as Denver's talent pool surrounding the signal caller is one of the league's elite.
