QB Kyle Orton Leading The Way In Denver

Colorado Springs Gazette - [Full Article]

Although the Broncos traded for Brady Quinn and drafted Tim Tebow, Denver head coach Josh McDaniels has made it clear to anyone who asks that Kyle Orton is still the team's starting quarterback.

"It's clear Kyle is ahead," McDaniels said. "There's no question. Kyle’s certainly got a great grasp on what we’re doing and he’s performing very well right now in the spring and the two younger guys are trying to push."

Fantasy Impact: 

Orton will be ahead for awhile, but all signs point to Tebow, aka "The Greatest American Hero" eventually taking over. Quinn is the least likely to see significant playing time, although one never knows with McDaniels. Tebow will be part of some packages early on, helping to negate what little fantasy stock Orton has. Unless you are in a keeper league and think Tebow is the real deal, it's best to stay away from all three Denver quarterbacks.
