2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The starting quarterback job in Denver is one of the most highly contested, extremely important training camp battles in the entire league this offseason. The job is primarily expected to be a battle between newcomers Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch, but keep an eye on Trevor Siemian who has already spent a year in the system and has been the recipient of quite a bit of praise from the coaching staff.

Nevertheless, the man who most believe will start the season behind center for the Broncos is the only player who has played a meaningful NFL snap thus far in his career – Sanchez. A quarterback who once led his Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship appearances, Sanchez has seen quite a fall from grace in recent seasons as he will now be playing for his third NFL team after his runs in Philadelphia and New York fizzled out.

Taking over as the starting quarterback for a team that won the Super Bowl just a few months ago is a daunting task on its own, but replacing arguably the greatest quarterback of all-time, Peyton Manning, is going to be on the mind of whoever ends up winning this job. Sanchez has been in a similar situation when he replaced another one of the all-time greats, Brett Favre, the season after Favre left the Jets.

Of course, Sanchez now steps into a situation where he has much higher expectations, but it’s worth considering that he’s not replacing a prime Manning. He’s replacing the version of Manning who played the worst football of his career, who nearly lost his job to Brock Osweiler, and was statistically speaking one of the worst quarterbacks in recent memory. Manning’s 9-to-17 touchdown-to-interception ratio was humiliatingly bad and quite frankly was one of the main reasons why the Broncos weren’t expected to completely run through the AFC Playoffs on their way to the Super Bowl in 2015. Despite Manning’s terrible play, the Broncos were still able to get the job done where it counted – on the scoreboard. Much of that came from the reality that while Manning was a shell of his physical prime, he was still mentally sharp and was able to get players into the right positions to succeed.

At this point, it would be extremely difficult for Sanchez to be worse than Manning from a statistical standpoint. Sanchez has never been a great fantasy performer in the past, but he also hasn’t often had the type of weapons that he does in Denver. There’s practically no question that the Broncos’ passing game is going to be more efficient than it was a season ago. However, it’s also worth noting that the Broncos likely passed the ball more often in 2015 than head coach Gary Kubiak would have preferred. This could mean better efficiency from the position in terms of touchdowns and turnovers, but it might also mean fewer yards.

Sanchez projects as a QB2 in most formats, but does have the upside to produce QB1 numbers in favorable matchups. The other thing to keep in mind with Sanchez is that while he will likely start the season for the Broncos, that doesn’t mean that he will keep the job all season. If the coaches don’t like what they’re seeing and particularly if the team starts the season with more losses than they expected, Sanchez could be on a short leash. Playmaking rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch is looming behind him on the depth chart and Trevor Siemian knows the playbook the best of the three, meaning that he could be given an opportunity if the wheels really begin to fall off the track.
