Summary

Drew Lock missed most of his rookie season due to a thumb injury suffered in the preseason, but he was able to start five games for the Broncos at the end of the 2019 season. In those games, Lock went 4-1 as the starter and showed flashes of being the franchise quarterback the Broncos have been looking for since Peyton Manning retired. Those games were enough for the Broncos brass to commit to the young quarterback and basically build the entire offense around him for the 2020 season. He will get to work with a new offensive coordinator as former New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur is now in charge of the Broncos offense. Shurmur got some good football out of rookie quarterback Daniel Jones last year and now gets to work his magic on Lock. The offense should be more high-powered than it was last season, not only because of Lock's experience and Shurmur's hiring but also because of the top-tier talent added this offseason. The Broncos have built their offense around Lock. Adding top-tier talent at the wide receiver position in 2020 first-round pick Jerry Jeudy and second-round pick K.J. Hamler should boost the offense. Things start with Lock's favorite target, Courtland Sutton, who should continue to ascend as one of the best young rising stars in the league today. Add in 2019 first-round pick TE Noah Fant and Lock's favorite target from college, 2020 fourth-round pick Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam, and you can see how Lock should be quite effective in year two. Lock has a big arm and there isn't a window or a spot on the field he won't challenge. He is athletic enough to keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. Lock is a charismatic leader and his teammates have bought in on him leading the team in 2020 and perhaps beyond. Make no mistake about it, 2020 is a try out for Lock to continue as the team's starter. The pressure is on him to perform at a high level and win games to get this team back in the playoff conversation. If Lock suffers a sophomore slump, then many changes could be made in Denver and they could try and find a replacement for Lock. He is an exciting QB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2020. Partly because of his skill set but also partly because of the improved weapons around him. The Broncos want to score more touchdowns and it will be Lock leading the way. Expect them to be more aggressive offensively than they have been in years past with the primary benefactor being Lock. (May 9)

Broncos | Drew Lock throws two INTs (Sun Oct 18, 03:44 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock went 10-for-24 for 189 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

Our View: Lock wasn't very nuanced in his play and forced the ball to his college teammate Albert Okwuegbunam. He also threw two picks late that gave the Patriots a chance to win. He doesn't seem like anything but a desperation play, even in 2QB/Superflex leagues. Lock faces the Chiefs next week, which won't be as tough a draw as the Patriots secondary.
