Running back Adrian Peterson makes it clear who he expects to start opening day.
“With Case Keenum, the quarterback runs everything, right?” Peterson said this weekend at SportsCon 2019 in Dallas, via Patrik Walker of 247Sports. “Offensively, we really look good with Case Keenum back there. He’s a veteran. He’s been in the league for a long time. He’s a gunslinger. He’s a guy that’s going to throw the ball and spread it around.”
The story said Peterson is high on Haskins, too, believing all the former Ohio State star needs is time and reps. But there might not be enough time or enough reps to get Haskins ready to start Week 1. Keenum, 31, has started 54 games, including 39 in the past three seasons. He became a bridge quarterback once Washington drafted Haskins 15th overall.
DEN QB Case Keenum - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Last Monday in Oakland the Broncos fell behind by multiple scores in the first half, which meant Case Keenum had more pass attempts than the Broncos coaching staff would have preferred. He finished with 202 yards through the air and two TDs tosses – the first time since Week 12 that he threw for more than one score. In the Denver win in November at Los Angeles Keenum threw for 205 yards and he remains a QB2 option for the rematch.
