Fantasy Slant: Broncos Name Trevor Siemian Starting Quarterback

The Denver Broncos on Monday made the obvious decision to name Trevor Siemian the team's starting quarterback over second-year player Paxton Lynch. This comes following an off-season program in which Lynch himself was downright disastrous on the field. 

In no way is this a glowing endorsement of Siemian after he struggled with an uneven performance as a first-year starter last season. Instead, it simply means he's bee named the Broncos' starter over a less-attractive option. 

Siemian, 25, is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him complete 60 percent of his passes for 3,401 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Though, he did put up seven of those interceptions in his final seven games. He's not a fantasy relevant options. And in reality, the Broncos' quarterback situation makes both Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas less than attractive options through a fantasy lens.
