Scouting report

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. New York Giants

In the win over the Raiders two weeks ago, Trevor Siemian had his first game of 2017 without a turnover. However, he threw for a season-low 179 yards with 1 TD. During the first quarter of the season, Siemian has averaged 222 passing yards while throwing 7 TDs and 4 interceptions. After the week off, he’ll be facing a Giants defense allowing 225 yards per game through the air. Once again, Siemian makes for more of a QB2 play.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Oakland Raiders

In his first road game of the season last week at Buffalo, Trevor Siemian had a bit of a rough game, especially when under pressure. He threw for 259 yards, but threw zero touchdowns, and he was picked off twice and sacked three times. While it was the first time this year he didn’t throw for a score, he has thrown at least one interception in all three contests. This week, back at home, Siemian faces a Raiders defense that was lit up by Kirk Cousins last Sunday night. While Cousins benefitted from a couple of short passes that turned into long gainers, Oakland has allowed over 250 passing yards per game. Consider Siemian a low-end QB1 play this week.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Buffalo Bills

What a performance Trevor Siemian put on versus the Cowboys last Sunday. He threw for 231 yards and 4 TDs, spreading the ball around to eight different targets. Siemian also ran for 14 yards, but he was also responsible for two turnovers. Buffalo has allowed just 354 total passing yards through the first two weeks and this will be Siemian’s first road test of the season. He should be used as just a QB2 option in what could be a low-scoring affair.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Last Monday versus the Chargers, Trevor Siemian was quite effective, throwing for 219 yards and 2 touchdown tosses (surprisingly, both to Bennie Fowler) and scored another touchdown on the ground. However, he was sacked four times and threw an unfortunate interception that let the Chargers back in the game. This week he’ll remain at home, but will face a Cowboys defense that hassled Eli Manning last Sunday night. Without Odell Beckham, the Giants managed just 223 total yards. While Siemian was able to move the Denver offense last week and has solid weapons to throw to, he remains nothing more than a QB2 option.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Once again Trevor Siemian beat out Paxton Lynch in the preseason and will be the Broncos starting quarterback to start the year. In 14 games last season under Gary Kubiak’s conservative offense, Siemian averaged 243 passing yards and threw for 18 scores. In the two contests versus the Chargers, he totaled 506 yards through the air with one touchdown and one interception. Even with the strong weapons he has in wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, you’re better off looking elsewhere for your Week 1 quarterback.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

After earning the starting job last season, Trevor Siemian posted decent numbers in 14 games, throwing for 3,401 yards and 18 TDs to only 10 INTs. Under Gary Kubiak’s system, the offense was fairly vanilla, and the conservative game plan limited Trevor’s numbers. However, in Week 3 contest versus a Bengals team that forced Siemian to throw, he torched them to the tune of 312 yards and a career-high four TDs. He still has great WR weapons to throw to in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who can both take a short pass and turn it into a big gain.

Fantasy Downside

While Siemian has the accuracy and the mindset to remain the team’s starting QB, the Broncos traded up in last year’s draft to take Paxton Lynch, and you have to figure at some point they’d like to see what they truly have in him. While Siemian was serviceable as the team's signal-caller, he passed for less than 250 yards four times and missed two-and-a-half games due to injury. Like Lynch, who is more the deep ball threat, Siemian will be learning a new offensive system under OC Mike McCoy.

2017 Bottom Line

The former seventh-round pick heads into the regular season as the No. 1 QB on the depth chart, but will receive some doubts if he has a bad game. While Siemian emerged again as the top signal-caller to start the season, the Broncos have a challenging schedule and could fall out of the playoff race early in a tough division. If that happens, expect to see Lynch under center. With that in mind, neither QB makes for a good fantasy draft pick with the uncertainty surrounding the position.

DEN QB Trevor Siemian - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Oakland
Last Sunday night in Kansas City, Trevor Siemian and the Denver offense again struggled to put points on the board. Trevor was just 17-of-43 for 183 yards and an interception. The Broncos just haven’t been moving over the past month, especially on the ground. At Oakland in Week 9, Siemian threw for 283 yards and two scores.
