    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is the backup to QB Case Keenum, head coach Vance Joseph said Friday, March 16, although the team continues to look at top quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft. 'Paxton is still young,' president of football operations John Elway said. 'We still have high hopes for Paxton. He's a young guy that is talented. He's been here for two years and had a tough year last year with the injuries and everything, but we still have high hopes for Paxton to come in here and compete and continue to grow as a quarterback. That is the expectation for Paxton.'

    Huddle Up: The team might have high hopes for Lynch, but if they draft another prospect in the first-round it might never happen for Lynch in the Mile High City. Case Keenum will be starting in 2018, while also mentoring a young quarterback. It might not be Lynch he is mentoring.

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 29, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 17 start against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Lynch will make the start, but he is apparently not 100 percent and his status during the game will be a matter of how much pain he can endure apparently. He is not a recommended fantasy starter even if he were fully healthy.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 9:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is still bothered by his ankle, and the injury will be a 'factor' in Week 17, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.

    Huddle Up: If you needed another reason not to start Lynch this Sunday, here it is. Even against a watered-down Chiefs defense the second-year pro is a risky play with a low ceiling.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 3:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Lynch is expected to be the starting quarterback this week but may be without some of his receivers because of injuries. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 3:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Lynch appears to be in line to start the regular-season finale, but he isn't someone to rely upon as a streaming option in seasonal play or even as a low-end DFS option.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 1:45pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) will receive playing time in Week 17, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Lynch will start the game, but owners will know more about his role later in the week. He has only received limited playing time this season and can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 4:25pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Lynch is still a candidate to start for the Broncos this week, so owners can monitor the situation over the next few days. He has only received limited playing time this season and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 4:48pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Lynch is a candidate to start in Week 16 if he is healthy enough, but the team has not made a decision at this point. He has received only limited playing time this season and can be avoided in all leagues if he starts.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 8:39am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) could start the final two games if he's healthy enough to play as the team wants to evaluate him.

    Huddle Up: Lynch doesn't hold much fantasy value except in dynasty leagues; and that may be waning as well.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 5:56am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is expected to be medically cleared to resume playing Sunday, Dec. 17, and will return to practice as a full participant later in the week.

    Huddle Up: No decision has been made on who will start Week 16's game versus the Washington Redskins Sunday, Dec. 24, but neither Lynch nor Brock Osweiler should be viewed as a viable fantasy option.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 12:03pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) will be sidelined for two to four weeks with a high-ankle sprain. QB Trevor Siemian will return as the starter.

    Huddle Up: Siemian made the most sense anyway, so the Broncos are being forced to do themselves a favor. Siemian played well after replacing Lynch in Week 12, but he still can't be trusted as a fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 5:08am ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is day to day with a minor ankle injury, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was ineffective and may not start even if he's healthy. Regardless, he's only worth consideration in dynasty leagues.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 3:21pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) left the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders due to an ankle injury and he will not return.

    Huddle Up: Lynch didn't generate much in the way of offense, and he left with his offense being held off the scoreboard so far. Trevor Siemian was the backup for the game, so he entered in Lynch's stead.

  • Posted: 11/21/2017 12:39pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will be announced as the new starting quarterback for Week 12 Wednesday, Nov. 22, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: In three career games Lynch has been mediocre at best, throwing for 497 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. What makes Lynch intriguing is his size and athletic ability as he can tuck the ball and run too. That being said, stay away from him from a fantasy perspective. He's too risky this close to the playoffs.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 3:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch worked as the No. 2 quarterback in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, and he took passing plays with the starting offense with QB Brock Osweiler (shoulder) limited in practice.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Vance Joseph said Osweiler is expected to start in Week 11, but he hasn't decided on the backup between Lynch and Trevor Siemian. Lynch has long-term fantasy appeal, but no use in seasonal leagues.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 7:47am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from a shoulder injury and could take over as the starting quarterback as soon as Week 10, according to sources. The team would like to evaluate him this season but want to wait until he is completely healthy.

    Huddle Up: Lynch received limited playing time last season and posted 497 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in three games. Lynch likely will not be a starting option in fantasy leagues this season but could be a No. 2 quarterback.

  • Posted: 8/28/2017 9:58am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) will miss multiple weeks, but his injury just requires rest and rehabilitation.

    Huddle Up: Lynch's only value is in dynasty formats at this point.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 9:52pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) exited the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 26, with a right shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Lynch had already lost the starting gig to Trevor Siemian, but if the injury turns out to be serious, it would ease some concerns about Lynch taking over at some point and make Siemian a little easier to trust as a fantasy backup, albeit a low-end backup.

  • Posted: 8/16/2017 9:22pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has received 'considerably more' first-team reps this week than he ever had during training camp. In a joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, August 16, there were five 'team' periods of 11-on-11 football, with Lynch getting three and QB Trevor Siemian receiving the other two. It was also 'pretty much that way' during the team's practices over the prior two days.

    Huddle Up: Lynch is slated to start the club's next preseason game on Saturday, so that has a lot to do with him getting this type of workload. Denver is expected to announce their starting quarterback going into the new season in the next week, but no matter who emerges from this battle, they shouldn't be counted on as your QB1 in any format entering Week 1.

  • Posted: 8/12/2017 6:32pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch looked more comfortable going through his progressions during practice Saturday, Aug. 12, according to Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan.

    Huddle Up: Lynch is struggling to beat out Trevor Siemian for the starting gig, and it doesn't seem like he'll help fantasy owners any time soon. It doesn't hurt to stash him in dynasty leagues if you have the space, but he can be ignored in redraft formats.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 10:47am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will start the second preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Trevor Siemian appears to be in the lead in the competition, but Lynch has a higher ceiling for fantasy purposes. Lynch is more of a dynasty option than a speculative QB2 at this point.

  • Posted: 6/25/2017 9:01am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch 'played with greater fearlessness' and made significant strides over the final two weeks of the team's offseason program, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

    Huddle Up: Klis has been solidly in Trevor Siemian's corner all offseason, so this is a fairly big deal. While Klis is not suggesting Lynch has overtaken Siemian, he does acknowledge the second-year quarterback's 'game is now in legitimate position to compete once training camp opens July 27.' If Lynch can wrestle the starting job away from Siemian, he should be considered a low-end fantasy QB2 option.

  • Posted: 6/11/2017 5:49pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch 'remains a work in progress' heading into minicamp, according to beat writer Mike Klis.

    Huddle Up: Trevor Siemian has to be considered the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but regardless of who is under center for the Broncos, fantasy owners should be able to find a better option. Lynch could be worth stashing in keeper formats.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 1:44pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is noticeably more confident and feels more comfortable, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck.

    Huddle Up: Two of the biggest growing pains for young quarterbacks are increasing confidence and comfortability. Those traits should continue to progress as Lynch becomes more and more acclimated to the NFL. Lynch will need to beat out Trevor Siemian this offseason in order to become a starter, though. And if he does become a starter, he still won't be close to QB1 consideration.
