We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores told reporters last week that his quarterback situation has been finalized and Josh Rosen will start the remainder of the season. With the team is eyeballing the top draft pick and needing to evaluate the youngster, this is a good thought. However, Rosen did not play well against Washington and was pulled in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Flores seems conflicted between getting Rosen experience and trying to win – something not recommended for a team “tanking for Tua”. The game Sunday was a battle of evenly-matched teams and the Dolphins should feel good about where they are in the rebuilding process. Flores did tell reporters after the game that Rosen was the starter going forward.
With the Denver Broncos on the outside looking in for the playoff chase, the team may turn to rookie Drew Lock if mathematically out of the playoffs. He has shed his thumb brace and threw on the field before the Week-5 upset of the Los Angeles Chargers. Lock can resume practicing with the team this week and must sit out eight games while on injured reserve. This is a team that needs to rebuild but has thought of itself as a contender. With a potential top-5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Broncos need to evaluate Lock for the future. He is no “lock” to be the 2020 starting quarterback if Denver is in a position to select a top passer in the upcoming draft class.
