|Elway committed to improving at quarterback|
Denver making changes after offense flounders in 2017
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Jan 3, 9:38 am
|The Denver Broncos laid the failure in 2017 at the feet of the quarterback. After watching Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, and Paxton Lynch flounder all season, GM John Elway stated the obvious on Tuesday: Denver's "No. 1 goal" is to upgrade the QB spot this offseason. "I think there is no doubt we've got to get better at that position," Elway said, via the team's official website. "For us to have a chance to get better, we've got to get better at that position."

FFToday's Take: Denver will be among the numerous teams entering the offseason with plans on adding a quarterback after the team posted a 76.0 QB-rating (31st in the NFL) and threw the most interceptions in the league. Denver's roster is in more of a "win now" phase so look for them to be active in free agency starting with Kirk Cousins (if he is not given franchise tag).
| Signs point to Osweiler getting the start|
Lynch appears gimpy in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 22, 3:00 pm
|All signs point to the Denver Broncos starting Brock Osweiler at quarterback Sunday at Washington.
Osweiler is expected to start not because he deserved the promotion after he came off the bench and led the Broncos to a 25-13, come-from-behind win last week at Indianapolis. He is expected to start because Paxton Lynch doesn’t appear quite healthy enough to play the bulk of a 60-minute game. (9 News in Denver)|
FFToday's Take: The Broncos have yet to name a starting QB but Lynch (ankle) appeared gimpy in practice. He split reps with Osweiler 50-50 during the week. If he's unable to go this week, expect Lynch to start Week 17 against the Chiefs. In related news, Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) appeared to be limited on Friday. He's a candidate for the Inactive list on Sunday.

Revolving door at QB continues for Denver
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 21, 3:45 pm
|At 3-7 and with a six-game losing streak in hand, the Denver Broncos will formally announce Wednesday that Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, sources told ESPN. The team's quarterbacks were to be informed of the decision Tuesday, and coach Vance Joseph is expected to announce the move to the team Wednesday morning. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Broncos have thrown in the towel on the 2017 season and are now auditioning their young quarterback. Brock Osweiler has been keeping the seat warm for Lynch who has been dealing with a shoulder injury since training camp. The matchup is decent for Lynch who faces a Raiders defense that has yet to pick off a pass this season.
