And as the football week begins Tuesday, the Broncos will again face a decision regarding whether Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback.

Lynch, who is recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 12 against the Raiders, practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Broncos’ game in Washington. He was a full participant Friday, but Osweiler started and played the entirety of Sunday’s contest.

Head Coach Vance Joseph noted earlier in the week that Lynch’s health would play a key role in determining whether he would start vs. Washington.

Following Sunday’s game, Joseph reiterated that point.

“Our goal is to see him play, so absolutely,” Joseph said. “If he’s ready to go next week, he will probably play for us.”

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch and Osweiler actually split reps leading up to the Washington game. With lots of QB questions heading into next season, the Broncos would clearly like to see more of Lynch.

Fantasy Impact:

Outlets are saying the Broncos haven't made a decision about their starting QB for Week 16. It would make sense for the team to want to start Lynch, but he may not be ready because of an ankle injury.

Broncos staying with Trevor Siemian at QB this week vs Jets.

Related players: Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Impact:

Siemian showed some signs of life relieving Lynch back in Week 12, but couldn't do much against the Dolphins on the road this past week. The good news is Siemian has a nice matchup against the Jets but likely isn't going to make our top QBs for Week 14.

Paxton Lynch has high ankle sprain. Out this week, maybe longer. Trevor Siemian will be Broncos starting QB vs. Miami, per league source.

Related players: Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Impact:

Siemian looked pretty good in relief throwing for 149 yards and two scores in the Broncos' loss to the Raiders. With a high ankle sprain for Lynch, Osweiler could start the next few weeks.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch’s ankle injury is considered day-to-day, sources say.

Related players: Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Impact:

The injury is considered not serious Rapoport said in the tweet. Lynch has tests today and the team has a QB decision to make, Rapoport also added. Siemian would seem the likely starter this time around should Lynch not be able to suit up. He took over for Lynch against the Raiders and threw for 149 yards and two TDs.

Broncos could make QB decision Tuesday

Denver Post - [Full Article]

OC Bill Musgrave won’t have a player the caliber of Oakland’s Derek Carr at his disposal as he prepares a game plan with the stated objective of completing more passes. HC Vance Joseph said Monday the Broncos have not decided on a quarterback for Sunday’s game at Oakland—that decision could come Tuesday—but it could be 2016 first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch, who would be making just his third career start.

Related players: Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Impact:

A move to Lynch would make sense for a new coordinator coming into his first week of action. Osweiler and Trevor Siemian haven't played well behind a sketchy offensive line so it may also be a struggle for Lynch, too, if he's named the starter.

Sunday, November 19, 2017, 3:04pm

Broncos Inactives
Lorenzo Doss CB
DeAngelo Henderson RB
Jeff Heuerman TE
Cyrus Kouandjio OT
Isaiah McKenzie WR
Trevor Siemian QB

Related players: Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Impact:

Interesting to note, Lynch will be the backup today to Osweiler and Siemian is inactive.

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 6:46pm

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Thomas should be fine to face the Patriots. Since 2015, Brock Osweiler has targeted Thomas on 28.7% of his passes as the quarterback for the Broncos.

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 6:46pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Sanders is good to go for Week 10. Since 2015, Brock Osweiler has targeted Sanders on 16.4% of his passes as the quarterback for the Broncos.

Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) says he's 'close'

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 1:30pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Broncos announced on Monday that Brock Osweiler will be making another start at quarterback when they take on the Patriots in Denver on Sunday night, which wasn’t much of a surprise given coach Vance Joseph’s take on where Paxton Lynch is after dealing with a right shoulder injury in the first half of the season.

“Close. I feel like right now if I was needed to play, obviously I’m going to help the team however I can,” Lynch said, via the Denver Post. “But that’s up to the training staff to decide. … I think they’ve done a good job with me so far in the training room and my reps and what not. I know they wanted to ease me into it, so it’s what they’re doing.”

Fantasy Impact:

Joseph said Lynch hasn't played football as a result of the injury and that it wouldn't be fair to Lynch and the team to throw him in there. It sounds like Lynch just needs to get back up to speed. A loss this week may quicken the process. Odds seem pretty good Lynch will see the field sooner rather than later the way this season is going for Denver.

Report: Broncos to stick with Brock Osweiler at QB

Broncos sticking with Brock Osweiler as starting QB this week vs. Pats, sources tell 9News.

Related players: Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian

Fantasy Impact:

Osweiler struggled against the Eagles, who haven't been great defending the pass. Osweiler gets another good matchup against the Patriots this week, but he's hardly a safe fantasy option outside of deeper QB leagues. This seems more about Lynch likely not being ready to play because of his shoulder.
