There's another quarterback change up in Denver.

The Broncos are starting Paxton Lynch in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and James Palmer reported.

Fantasy Impact:

This isn't really a surprise after the change in offensive coordinator Monday. Lynch may have some upside but the entire offense has struggled and their offensive line hasn't been very good, so it's hard to imagine Lynch performing any different than Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler. Still, the Broncos want to see what they have in Lynch, who gets a nice matchup against the Raiders in his first start.

Broncos could make QB decision Tuesday

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.

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.

Broncos fire OC Mike McCoy

The Broncos' losing streak now has its first casualty.

Denver has fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the move.

Fantasy Impact:

Adam Schefter reports the team promoted Bill Musgrave to the OC position. The Broncos are struggling at QB as well as the offensive line, so it's hard to expect Musgrave to come right in and work miracles. Paxton Lynch was the backup to Brock Osweiler Sunday and Trevor Siemian was inactive so it's possible starting Lynch at QB could be another change the team makes.
