    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch received a public show of support for his work ethic Sunday, April 16 - not long after DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus said in a radio interview some of his sources questioned his work ethic and study habits. Mike Klis of 9 News Denver called Broaddus' claims 'inappropriate and false'.

    Huddle Up: Klis suggests Broaddus is speaking for the Cowboys because it is well known Dallas wanted Lynch in the draft last spring. Whether Broaddus' sources are right or wrong, Lynch has some work to do in order to overtake Trevor Siemian and earn the starting job many expected he would have locked down by now.

  • Posted: 4/16/2017 11:10am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is reportedly having trouble 'buying in' to things like an 'early in, late out' attitude, according to DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus, who spoke with some of his sources in Denver recently.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was considered a project coming out of the draft last spring, so he was already behind the curve. With that said, he looked far from ready in limited game action as a rookie, and this report - if true - would go a long way in explaining why that was the case. Nevertheless, Lynch will have his chance to silence the critics this summer as he battles Trevor Siemian for the starting job in camp.

  • Posted: 4/15/2017 1:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has been working on improving his footwork this offseason and hopes to win the starting quarterback job during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Lynch received limited playing time as a rookie and posted 497 yards, two touchowns and one interception in 2016. Trevor Siemian may have an edge at this point of the competition, but Lynch will have a chance if he plays well during the preseason. Fantasy owners should consider the Broncos starter a No. 2 quarterback no matter who wins the competition.

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch might not necessarily be a shoo-in for the starting job in 2017, as QB Trevor Siemian has impressed with his demeanor. 'Talking to people in the building, the thought process is that even though they picked (Lynch) in the first round, (Siemian) is in mind to be the guy moving forward for the next couple of seasons,' NFL Network's James Palmer said.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was drafted in the first round as the future in the Mile High City, but his draft status does not appear to make a difference right now. The team likes what they're seeing from Siemian and Lynch might be years away from fantasy value in re-draft leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 12/7/2016 10:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie QB Paxton Lynch will get ready to play in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday, Dec. 7. QB Trevor Siemian (foot) might practice Thursday, Dec. 8, but the starting signal caller is up in the air and Kubiak said both Siemian and Lynch are preparing.

    Huddle Up: Lynch didn't overwhelm in Week 13 in his second start of the season. If he gets the nod again, he is only worth a look as a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 1:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch was 12-of-24 for 104 yards in a 20-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Dec. 4.

    Huddle Up: Lynch, starting in place of QB Trevor Siemian (foot), has played a little here and there when Siemian has been out. He still needs some seasoning, as evidenced by a lackluster performance against one of the NFL's worst defenses. As long as Lynch is in, receivers like Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be lesser plays.
