Summary

Trevor Siemian spent most of last season as the starter for the Broncos. During that time, he did have a couple of big games but for the most part he struggled with consistency making plays to challenge a defense under pressure. Siemian was also hurt three times in 2016 with injuries to both shoulders and a foot injury. The injury to his non-throwing shoulder was the most severe (Grade 5) and it bothered him all season long. He is competing with 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the starting job in 2017. Siemian has to be considered the frontrunner due to his experience even though it's a 50/50 "open" competition according to new head coach Vance Joseph. During OTAs and minicamp, Siemian looked the same. He was largely working the short stuff but rarely wanted to challenge a defense deep. In order to win the starting job, Siemian will have to show more of a willingness to attack. (July 10)

Broncos | Trevor Siemian feeling better with offense (Thu Aug 10, 02:32 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian said he's felt like the offense has been clicking for him lately, like a switch was suddenly flipped. Siemian said he's felt more comfortable in the new offense and feels that he's in a good spot right now under new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

Our View: While this may be true, there are enough reports out of camp painting Siemian as average for us to not be too excited by this news. Unfortunately for John Elway, Paxton Lynch just doesn't seem ready, and he may be stuck with average again this year. Average might really be an improvement over last year, though, as Siemian was inconsistent and erratic far too much. Most Fantasy GMs seem to feel the same, as he is the 30th quarterback coming off the board in drafts despite two of the better receivers in the NFL to throw to.

Broncos | Trevor Siemian to start preseason opener (Mon Aug 7, 01:32 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will start the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 10.

Our View: No surprise here as Siemian has been the better player in training camp for most days. Head coach Vance Joseph still says this is an open competition and Paxton Lynch will start preseason game no2 against the 49ers the following week. If Lynch doesn't start playing better, it will be Siemian under center when the Broncos take on the Chargers in Week 1 of the regular season.

Broncos | Trevor Siemian winning QB competition (Sun Aug 6, 08:33 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has won 'every single practice session' against QB Paxton Lynch, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.

Our View: Siemian will execute the offense faithfully to the playbook and calls, but he won't add value to throws. It could help Demaryius Thomas get even more screen targets and high percentage plays, but overall this development means that pass offense won't take a big step forward unless Paxton Lynch does soon, but the clock is running out.
