Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (right shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Paxton Lynch played in three games as a rookie in 2016, completing 59 percent of his passes for 497 yards and two touchdowns. He is a former first round pick that the Broncos would like to get on the field to see what he can do. Paxton has great size at 6-foot-7 and a powerful arm he’s not afraid to use. If he does take the field during the regular season, he’ll be throwing to two great WRs in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Fantasy Downside

In two starts last season filling in for the injured Trevor Siemian, Lynch looked timid and was given a conservative game plan. In a Week 13 win at Jacksonville, Lynch threw for just 104 yards on 24 attempts, with his longest completion going for a meager 18 yards. Like Siemian, Lynch will be learning a new system under OC Mike McCoy.

2017 Bottom Line

Siemian won the starting nod heading in to the regular season, but the Broncos brass would really like to see Lynch take over the position at some point. The performance of the team during the first half of 2017 will dictate who the signal-caller will be down the stretch. Look for Siemian to be under center for the first half, with Lynch potentially taking over during the second half. Neither makes for a strong draft pick unless you’re in a two-quarterback league and can afford to ride out a true competition winner.
