The Broncos traded for Mark Sanchez earlier this year, and there's a chance he begins the season as the starter. He has experience working in this run-heavy, play-action heavy offense from his days in college at USC. Sanchez has the desired athleticism to execute the play-fakes and bootlegs required in the Gary Kubiak system. During his time as the starter with the Jets, Sanchez led the team to two AFC Championship Games on the back of a strong defense. The Broncos have the league's best defense, so Sanchez won't be asked to do much if he is the starter. In fact, Sanchez never had a 1,000-yard receiver when he was with the Jets. Now, he's got two such WRs in star wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Even if Sanchez is the Week 1 starter, the Broncos want 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch to take over at some point this season. (May 17)

Broncos | Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian gridlocked (Tue Jun 14, 02:44 PM) - Denver Broncos QBs Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian are 'looking each other in the eye' for the starting quarterback position, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. QB Paxton Lynch is the clear No. 3 quarterback at this point.

Our View: Siemian was airmailing passes at practice on Tuesday. He's got a big arm but little control or consistent accuracy. Sanchez makes some boneheaded throws from time to time, but he's in more control of where the ball is going than Siemian. We think Sanchez begins the season as the starter. The development of Paxton Lynch will determine how long Sanchez remains in the top spot. Fantasy owners need to downgrade the WRs in the Broncos passing attack. They'll run the ball as much as possible this season.

Broncos | Consistency key for Denver QBs (Tue Jun 14, 02:27 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still holds the starting spot for now, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch assume the No. 2 and No. 3 positions, respectively. Kubiak did add that he's looking for the most consistent quarterback to be the starter.

Our View: The most consistent passer at this time is Sanchez. That's not an exciting option for fantasy owners, and WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will see their numbers impact this year. We see Thomas as a mid-range WR2 and Sanders as a WR3/flex with upside.
