Week 20 Projections

Season Projections
8/28/16: With Week 3 of the preseason in the books, it appears that Trevor Siemian will start the season as the Broncos' No. 1 QB. But Paxton Lynch is closing fast and we expect him to overtake Siemian by mid-season. As for Mark Sanchez, he's shaping up as the No. 3 QB, that's if he even makes the team. 8/22/16: With Denver head coach Gary Kubiak stating that Paxton Lynch is still in the running to start in Week 1, this officially becomes a situation to avoid. It wouldn't surprise us if Trevor Siemian, Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch all started games this season. 7/5/16: After Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset with the Lombardi Trophy and Brock Osweiler hightailed it to Houston for a starting gig and a big money contract, the quarterback-needy Broncos traded for Sanchez. During his last two years as a backup with the Eagles, Sanchez amassed a 4-6 record in 10 spot starts, averaging 267.6 passing yards per game and racking up an 18:15 TD-to-INT ratio. The mobile Sanchez's arm is strong enough to make all the throws, however, his accuracy is streaky, and the 29-year-old signal caller has been turnover prone. While Sanchez is likely to start in Week 1, he's considered a band-aid until Denver's 2016 rookie first-round selection, Paxton Lynch, is ready to take the reins. The Broncos operate a conservative run-first attack and lean on their ferocious defense to win games, so big fantasy friendly passing games are rare in their offense. Even though Sanchez has two elite targets in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, he'll be used mainly as a game manager and will throw just enough to keep opposing defenses honest. Sanchez's value will depend on how many games he gets to start and the matchups. Sanchez will also have to beat out second-year QB Trevor Siemian, which while expected, is not a given.
