Broncos | Brock Osweiler expected to start next year

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:24:26 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is expected to be the Broncos starting quarterback next season if they can sign him to an extension, even if QB Peyton Manning decides that Super Bowl 50 isn't his final game. Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said Monday, Feb. 1, that Osweiler has done everything to put himself in a position to start for Denver next year. President and general manager John Elway said he's excited about Osweiler and is "hoping to get something done with Brock this offseason." Osweiler can become a free agent March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler looked good in his first extended starting run at quarterback, but he'll have his ups and downs as he continues to learn. He could eventually become a starting fantasy quarterback, but all things considered next year he'll likely project as a solid backup option if he's starting in Denver or elsewhere.

Broncos | Denver not looking ahead

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 12:02:22 -0800

Denver Broncos president and general manager John Elway won't comment on the future of QBs Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, saying the team is "staying in the moment" right now.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos would be crazy to stick with Manning for another season after a disappointing 2015 season in which he threw almost twice as many interceptions as touchdowns and missed six weeks with injury. Osweiler appears to be Denver's QB of the future, but contract negotiations could be tricky. Even if No. 18 lands with another team in 2016, he shouldn't be considered a fantasy starter.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler looking for three-year deal?

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:08:53 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent QB Brock Osweiler will command a deal in the range of a three-year, $36 million deal this offseason, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of how Denver's season ends, Peyton Manning probably won't be in there plans for 2016 and beyond. Osweiler had his ups and downs during a starting stretch this year, but he proved enough to be seriously considered as Denver's starter of the future. If he re-signs with the Broncos, he could be a solid backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Peyton Manning wasn't going to be benched

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:55:15 -0800

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said he never considered benching QB Peyton Manning in favor of QB Brock Osweiler in the second half of the divisional round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. "No," Kubiak said. "We were struggling because we didn't catch the ball. We would have had a really big first half. There was 100 yards of plays we left out there. We just need to keep plugging away."

Fantasy Tip: Manning had only 222 yards and no touchdowns against a very beatable Pittsburgh secondary, but he wasn't helped by drops from his receivers. The New England Patriots won't present a much easier matchup for No. 18, but it all will come down to how well Denver can run the ball.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler questionable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 15:24:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is questionable for the divisional round against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) should be good to back up Peyton Manning on Sunday barring a setback. He has zero fantasy value at this point, though.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler will be available

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:23:21 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) is expected to be able to serve as QB Peyton Manning's backup in the divisional round game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Jan. 17. Osweiler is set to practice Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been pretty banged up since he relinquished the starting quarterback job to Manning, and he likely wouldn't have been active if the Broncos played in the wild-card round. In a backup role now, you can forget about Osweiler in fantasy.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler to practice Friday

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 12:29:04 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) is expected to return to practice Friday, Jan. 15, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) will back up Peyton Manning against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional round, so Osweiler has no FantasyScore appeal whatsoever.

Broncos | No Brock Osweiler at practice

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 11:45:41 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) remains out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 14. He is set to be the backup to QB Peyton Manning in the divisional round against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: With Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) being relegated to backup duties to start the playoffs, he has zero fantasy appeal. He's beat up, too, so there's a chance Trevor Siemian may have to back up Manning against Pittsburgh.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler doesn't practice

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 12:16:53 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee, shoulder, elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: This could just be a rest day for Osweiler ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) as he did participate in practice earlier this week. He is dealing with a slew of injuries right now, though. Of course, he won't be starting this week as the Denver Broncos turn to Peyton Manning ($8,700, 17.4%) once again, so he shouldn't be in your starting lineup anyway.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler practicing

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:24:28 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee, shoulder, elbow) is participating in practice Monday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has been dealing with several injuries over the past few weeks, but it appears like he will be available for the divisional round playoff game. Osweiler will be the No. 2 quarterback with Peyton Manning returning to the starting lineup. Manning could be a solid option on FantasyScore against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 10:20:53 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee, shoulder, elbow) will not practice Saturday, Jan. 9, as originally hoped.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning is the starter for the divisional round, anyway. He'll be a QB1 option on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler has knee strain

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 15:07:52 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) suffered a low-grade strain to the medial collateral ligament of his right knee in Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers, according to sources. He was injured at the seven-minute mark of the second quarter. He was very sore Monday, Jan. 4, and stayed in Denver during the team's three day break to receive treatment. Osweiler is expected to be ready to take practice repetitions next week.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning was named the starter for the divisional game next weekend, and this likely played some part in Gary Kubiak's decision. Osweiler is expected to be fine to serve as Manning's backup, but you can obviously ignore him in fantasy.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler to sit again

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 10:26:57 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) won't practice until Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: He won't start in the divisional round as Peyton Manning (foot) was named the starter earlier today. Manning will be a QB1 option on FantasyScore.

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 09:36:10 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Jan. 7. He's expected to be ready for the divisional round.

Fantasy Tip: He won't start, however, as Peyton Manning (foot) was named the starter earlier today. Manning will be a QB1 option on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler lifted in second half

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:34:36 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler was lifted midway through the third quarter of the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers in favor of QB Peyton Manning (foot).

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has started since Manning last played Nov. 15, but the Broncos are struggling in Week 17 and the Kansas City Chiefs are winning their game and threatening to steal the AFC West Division title. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Broncos | Peyton Manning checks into game

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:34:04 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) checked into the Week 17 game midway through the third quarter against the San Diego Chargers, replacing the ineffective QB Brock Osweiler.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos were desperate, down 13-7 midway through the third quarter to the Chargers, with the Kansas City Chiefs winning against Oakland. If the Chiefs win, and Broncos lose, the Broncos would slip from a first-round bye to a wild-card road game if the Chiefs continue to win. It's desperation time, thus Manning coming in for a spark.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler, Peyton Manning probable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 13:39:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (elbow, shoulder, ribcage) and QB Peyton Manning (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and are listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will be the starter against the Chargers and has posted decent numbers over the last few games. He will have a favorable matchup this week and could be a decent option for owners on FantasyScore. Manning ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will serve as the backup but could regain the starting role in the playoffs.

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 15:03:11 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (elbow, shoulder, ribcage) and QB Peyton Manning (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will be the starting quarterback against the San Diego Chargers this week but Manning ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) expected to be the backup. Osweiler has played well over the last few weeks and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore because of his favorable matchup.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler better at fast pace?

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 12:24:26 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler started clicking in the Week 16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals when the Broncos were behind by two scores early and they went with the no-huddle, shotgun offense. Osweiler was 17-for-24 for 192 yards and a touchdown when in the no huddle and shotgun offense against a strong Bengals defense.

Osweiler appeared more comfortable with the quick pace, and he operated in a no-huddle offense in high school and at Arizona State. "I enjoy it," Osweiler said. "I haven't had too much experience in the game, but it's certainly something I very comfortable with." The quick pace also serves to camouflage the Broncos weakness, their offensive line. Osweiler also finished 4-for-6 on third downs with the up-tempo attack.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has surely had his ups and downs so far, as any young quarterback usually does. He's come close to three straight 300-yard games, but remember that the San Diego Chargers held him to only 166 yards with a touchdown and interception earlier this month. There's a lot to like about Osweiler, but his ceiling is somewhat limited in the regular season finale.

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 23:10:55 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (elbow, shoulder, rib cage) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) faces a strong FantasyScore matchup against a banged up Chargers team playing out the string. He is an attractive play with a tempting price tag.

Broncos | Peyton Manning could be backup

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:18:35 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) will practice this week and will back up QB Brock Osweiler in Week 17 if he's healthy enough.

Fantasy Tip: Denver's quarterback situation is somewhat cloudy after the regular season finale. Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is starting this week, but the big question is whether or not Manning will be healthy enough to start in the playoffs. As for Osweiler, the San Diego Chargers pose a tough test, and he should not be viewed as a QB1.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler in line to start again

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:51:11 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler appears to be in line to start again in Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers after the Broncos Week 16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 28. It was reported earlier Monday that QB Peyton Manning (foot) could start the regular season finale if Denver lost to the Bengals. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said there is "no chance" Manning would start if Osweiler played well Monday. "Yeah, I've said that. Nothing has changed with Brock," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "If something would change, players would know first."

Fantasy Tip: It's not official yet, but it'd be a surprise if Denver went to Manning ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) right now. Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been inconsistent at times and has looked great at other times. It's normal for a young quarterback without much experience. The San Diego Chargers held Osweiler in check in their first matchup, and they've been pretty tough for opposing quarterbacks for much of the year. Osweiler isn't the most attractive option in Week 17.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler has more thump on throws

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:44:41 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas compared QBs Brock Osweiler and Peyton Manning before the team's Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 28. "You know, Brock is a different type of quarterback," Thomas said, "so you know his (ball) is for sure faster with a little more thump behind it. Peyton doesn't really have a route he can throw hard on unless it's a short route. That's the main thing." Thomas caught at least eight passes for 90 yards in five games with Manning under center this year, and Osweiler has provided Thomas with just one of those performances.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) continues to be up and down but has flashed signs of brilliance in Denver's offense. He definitely has a much stronger arm than Peyton at his stage of his career, but it's hard to compare the two. It looks like Osweiler will be in line to start in Week 17, too. The matchup isn't great for FantasyScore owners, especially since the San Diego Chargers held Osweiler to just 166 yards not too long ago.

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:26:25 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder, elbow) will be treated for a left elbow injury to go with his separated left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to be fine for Week 17. Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has a decent matchup against the San Diego Chargers and is a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler nearly posts 300 yards

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 22:21:02 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler went 27-for-39 for 299 yards and one touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler has thrown for at least 296 yards in each of his last three games and has four touchdowns during that span. There is a good chance that he will start in Week 17 as well, so he could be a starting option in deeper league since he has a solid matchup against the San Diego Chargers.

Broncos | Peyton Manning may start in Week 17

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 17:20:33 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) may be the starting quarterback for the Week 17 game against San Diego Chargers if he is healthy enough to play and if QB Brock Osweiler struggles against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16. Osweiler will be the starter if he plays well against the Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has missed the last few games because of his foot injury but could play in the regular season finale if the team needs to win. Owners will need to monitor the situation throughout the week.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler inefficient downfield

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 16:27:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler has recorded a 17.9 passer rating with he has thrown passes over 20 yards this season, which is the lowest rating among qualified quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is coming off a solid performance in Week 15 when he threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns but has struggled during the final second half of the last two games. Owners could consider starting him but should not expect big numbers against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will remain the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. QB Peyton Manning (foot) regaining the starting role has been put on hold, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is a midrange option against the Cincinnati Bengals on FantasyScore for Monday Night Football.

Broncos | Peyton Manning wants to face San Diego

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 09:19:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) said he will be ready to play in Week 17's game against the San Diego Chargers, during an interview with ESPN's Lisa Salters. However, QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) is expected to remain the starter for the rest of the season, despite dealing with a Grade 2 separation to his non-throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Manning ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) may have already thrown his final pass in a Broncos uniform, although he is holding out hope that he can return to action. He has not practiced this week and it is uncertain if he will be healthy enough to serve as Osweiler's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) backup for the Monday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Even if Manning does return this year, he would be a very risky play in FantasyScore.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler has separated shoulder

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 09:11:26 -0800

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) will remain the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, even though he is dealing with a Grade 2 separation in his left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) injury is to his non-throwing shoulder and he was able to serve as a full participant in practice throughout the week, so it shouldn't affect his performance. However, he should not be viewed as anything more than a midrange starting option in FantasyScore.

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 20:54:45 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25. The team did not conduct a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has played well at times since taking over the starting job and has eight touchdowns in six games. Osweiler will be facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense this week and is not the best option for owners.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler takes part in practice

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 14:02:55 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been a bit inconsistent over his last few starts with strong play in the first half and some problems in the second half. Osweiler will be facing a Cincinnati Bengals defense that plays well against opposing quarterbacks, which makes him a risky option for owners.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler the starter going forward

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 12:43:51 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback going forward, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a big surprise, as this was really the case already. As long as Peyton Manning isn't healthy enough to start then Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will be under center. Osweiler has made his inconsistencies evident since starting, despite flashes of success. He's still a backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler has eye issue

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 12:33:23 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (eye, shoulder) said his eye was bothering him Wednesday, Dec. 23, and he will visit with a doctor. He said his shoulder is fine.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) eye and shoulder injuries don't appear to be an issue. He is starting in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Osweiler has been up and down in his extended run as starter, and that'll likely continue against a tough Bengals defense on Monday night. He's a midrange starter on FantasyScore, at best.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler struggling in second half

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 09:45:06 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler's quarterback rating in the first half of his starts this year is 109.4, but it drops 44 points in the second half. His sack rate also goes way up in the second half, rising from one sack every 19.8 dropbacks in the first half to one every 9.5 dropbacks in the second half. The Broncos have been outscored 36-0 after halftime in three December games.

Fantasy Tip: Ups and downs are expected from any quarterback starting for the first time in the NFL, and Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is no different. The Cincinnati Bengals have been tough on opposing quarterbacks this year, so it definitely won't be all smooth sailing for him Monday night, and his ceiling surely won't be as high as it was against Pittsburgh last week. He's a weaker daily pick this week.

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 09:14:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will start Monday, Dec. 28, in Week 16 with QB Peyton Manning (foot) likely to be out. Manning isn't expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) had a huge game last week and is a midrange option against the Cincinnati Bengals on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Peyton Manning could be backup this week

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:57:13 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is expected to return to practice this week and have a goal of doing more work with less pain. Head coach Gary Kubiak said he'd be comfortable with having Manning serve as the backup to QB Brock Osweiler in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals even if Manning isn't 100% healthy. Manning is likely to take practice off for Christmas Friday, Dec. 25. "We're trying to work him back to where we feel like he can go play, where he can be himself," Kubiak said. "That's been the plan all along. We're not there yet."

Fantasy Tip: Manning is highly unlikely to be named the starter against the Cincinnati Bengals, and there's still a chance he doesn't play again for the Broncos. If Manning does start again this year, he'll be a huge risk for those considering him in daily formats.

Broncos | Denver's QB situation unchanged

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:54:23 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler said he hasn't heard anything yet regarding the Broncos quarterback situation. Head coach Gary Kubiak will make a plan for QB Peyton Manning, but nothing has changed as of now.

Fantasy Tip: As has been the case the last couple of weeks, this situation will need some monitoring as the week continues. Manning returned to practice last week, so he may be closer to starting this week. Don't make any decisions yet if you're considering a Broncos quarterback for Week 16.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler's shoulder is OK

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 13:43:47 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) said his shoulder is OK, jokingly adding that he would have to be killed to not be on the field.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear at this point in the week if Osweiler or Peyton Manning will start Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. Osweiler probably played his best half of football in the first half yesterday, but he has really struggled in the second half of Denver's last two games. The Bengals have been an elite pass defense this season, too, so Osweiler should not be started on your fantasy teams even if he starts for the Broncos.

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler led four straight scoring drives in the first half of the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15, becoming the third quarterback in team history to throw three touchdowns and run one in in the same game. However, Osweiler and the Broncos had six straight punts in the second half as he battled through an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler played excellent in the second half and then he and the offense looked completely lost in the second half. The same thing happened in Week 14. With a young quarterback like Osweiler starting for the first time, ups and downs are expected. Despite the big numbers against Pittsburgh, he's not a safe sleeper pick in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals defense.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler tosses three scores

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 18:59:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler completed 21 of 44 passes for 296 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 34-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler is averaging just over 300 yards in his last two starts, but with Peyton Manning potentially returning soon, Osweiler could find himself back on the bench.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler taking a lot of sacks

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 10:41:30 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler has been sacked 17 times in four starts since taking over for QB Peyton Manning (foot) a month ago. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver's Week 15 opponent, ranks fifth in the league with 38 sacks through 13 games. Manning was sacked just 15 times in the nine games he played. "A little bit of both," Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler said. "Pulling the ball down and not being sure of where he goes with it. Obviously, Peyton knows where he's going with it all the time. This guy, sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't." The Broncos haven't scored a touchdown in 23 consecutive offensive drives, and they had just 34 yards rushing on 21 attempts in Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: This game could quietly become a shootout for the Broncos if they fall behind early. Although Pittsburgh is good at getting after the quarterback, they struggle mightily stopping the passing game and rank 31st against the pass. That makes Osweiler ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) a deep sleeper pick on FantasyScore after he threw for over 300 yards last weekend.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler struggling

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 10:02:51 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler has the most three-and-outs (18) since he took over as quarterback in Week 11. Denver hasn't scored a touchdown in 23 drives.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a good matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his play doesn't lend much confidence as a midrange FantasyScore grab.

Broncos | Denver QB situation is week-to-week

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 12:47:41 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will start this week and is expected to play well, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak isn't making any decisions on who will be the starter after this week. The decision on who to start will be on a week-to-week basis.

Fantasy Tip: This all depends on Peyton Manning's foot and how it responds during practices and increased activity. For now, Osweiler ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as a starting fantasy quarterback, although he does have a decent matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler will start

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 15:20:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will start in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) isn't the most reliable starting fantasy quarterback, but he's not the worst option this week on FantasyScore as the Pittsburgh Steelers have been relatively accommodating to opposing quarterbacks. He's a medium-risk, medium-reward play in Week 15.

Broncos | Brock Osweiler expected to start

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 14:05:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is expected to start in Week 15 despite the Broncos not naming a starter yet. QB Peyton Manning (foot) is still expected to practice some this week, too.

Fantasy Tip: It's too risky to start Manning ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) this week, both for the Broncos and for fantasy owners. He's not at 100% and still needs time to heal and start practicing again. In the meantime, Osweiler ($6,500, 13.0%) should be viewed as a low-end QB2.

Broncos | Peyton Manning still needs to prove health

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 11:58:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) still needs to practice and prove his foot is healthy enough to play on before being able to play. The Denver Post's Troy Renck said it would be a surprise if Manning played this week. Neither Manning nor QB Brock Osweiler has been named the starting quarterback for Week 15 yet.

Fantasy Tip: Again, the Broncos have a crucial tilt with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, so they probably want to have a couple more days to fully determine Manning's health and availability before deciding on a starter. An unhealthy Manning is riskier than a healthy Osweiler. Stay tuned.
