Draft note
by John Paulsen
Lock took over as Denver’s starter in Week 13 and proceeded to toss five touchdowns in his first two games. Unfortunately, that success didn’t continue as he was only able to muster two total touchdown passes against the Chiefs, Lions and Raiders over the final three games. His 13.6 PPG equates to low-end QB2 numbers, but there are a few reasons for optimism heading into 2020. Sophomore quarterbacks who struggle to produce in year one typically see their PPG increase by 25% in year two. Also, the Broncos made a concerted effort to improve his receiving corps by drafting Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler to go along with Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant. Lock projects to have one of the tougher schedules at his position but he should be a streamer in 2020.

DEN QB Drew Lock - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
After suffering a thumb injury during preseason, it took a while before Drew Lock took over for the Broncos, as he didn’t make his regular season debut until December. During the five games he started with the team, he went 4-1, with Lock completing 64% of his passing for just over 1,000 yards with seven TDs and three INTs. His best game came in Week 14 at Houston when he tossed for over 300 yards and three scores. Drafted as a gunslinger who likes to take risks, the second-year pro has a strong arm and, with the Broncos drafting Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler in the first two rounds, is now surrounded by loads of talent.

Fantasy Downside
Lock has only the five games of experience and a limited offseason, so don’t be surprised if he still plays like a rookie during the ’20 season. He threw for less than 210 yards in four of his five outings, averaging just 6.5 yards per attempt. While the projected starting WR corps is blessed with speed, it is very young, with a couple rookies and the No. 1 option, Courtland Sutton, entering his third year.

Bottom Line
There are high expectations for Lock and the Broncos offense with new OC Pat Shurmur, who last season helped rookie QB Daniel Jones pass for over 3,000 yards and 24 TDs in 13 games. The youngster will be helped by what should be a solid running attack with Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay. Even though the Denver offense is anticipated to be better this year, Lock is a still a second tier QB option with most of his upside coming in keeper leagues.
