|Paxton Lynch in mix for starting QB job|
Broncos leaving options open at QB
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 20, 9:00 am
|With a new head coach and a new offensive staff in place in Denver, the Broncos have an opportunity to go in a new direction. According to Mike Klis of KUSA, the Broncos are prepared to give 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch a chance to win the starting job this offseason, and want to push him toward that goal. (ProFootballTalk)|
FFToday's Take: It makes sense for the new regime as Trevor Siemian proved to be a capable but not outstanding quarterback in 2016. There's been speculation that Tony Romo would like to play in Denver but there's been no indication that the Broncos are interested in the veteran QB.

Both QBs to see playing time in season finale

|Trevor Siemian will start Sunday when the Broncos host the Raiders in their regular season finale. But he and rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch are expected to get playing time. (Denver Post)|
FFToday's Take: With the Broncos out of the playoffs, rookie Paxton Lynch will get some playing time in the season finale. Neither quarterback will be viable fantasy play in Week 17.
|"Good chance" Paxton Lynch starts finale|
Broncos eliminated from playoffs Week 16
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 26, 6:20 pm
|With the exception of the most recent game at Kansas City - his only clunker of the season - Trevor Siemian earned the Denver Broncosí No. 1 quarterback job, one of the most exalted positions in all of sports. But first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch has to start this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
And thereís a good chance he will, even if Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak wasnít ready to make such a pronouncement Monday, a few hours after returning from his teamís embarrassing Christmas Night performance in Kansas City. (9News)|
FFToday's Take: Kubiak can be excused for not making up his mind yet after the Broncos got back to Denver early Monday morning, but it makes too much sense to give their first-rounder another chance to start in what amounts to a meaningless game for them this weekend. With that said, Lynch has struggled mightily in his limited action, so the Oakland Raiders D/ST makes for a solid play in DFS or Week 17 championships.
