Case Keenum

Recommended Posts

As far as impact on the team goes, I'd wager Keenum is the biggest upgrade any team has made this offseason. He's worth at least 4 wins by himself for Denver. They had BY FAR the worst QB play in the NFL last year. 

In fantasy, he'll certainly help Thomas and Sanders, but he's likely a mid to low-end backup himself.

Actually probably true

Lunch Special: Should the Broncos pass on QB

I’m glad you’re back from vacation. (9NEWS reporter Mike) Klis has been an over-the-top salesman on everything Broncos. Seems like (Case) Keenum is a hall of famer and Vance (Joseph) should be given a lifetime contract. Uggggg.

Kiz: Does Case Keenum rhyme with rebuilding? Keenum is what he is. A capable NFL back-up that played very good football for one season, with the support of a very solid Minnesota Vikings defense. Could Keenum get the Broncos to the playoffs? Absolutely. Keenum is a bust if he fails to do anything less than ride the coattails of Von Miller to the postseason. But to know what the Broncos really think of Keenum, all you have to do is follow the money. It’s a 2-year deal. Keenum isn’t the long-term answer. He’s a bridge. Question is: A  bridge to where? To Paxton Lynch? To a QB selected in the the draft? To the next time that John Elway has to pull a veteran QB out of his … scouting reports on free agents?

There is a misperception about Keenum being a so-called bridge QB.

A bridge would be someone like McCown or even Tyrod Taylor...you know what their ceiling is.

Keenum's floor is well above 2017's Broncos QB crew...but Elway believes Keenum also still has upside potential (mostly consistency and decision-making) that can throw for 4K-plus yards and get them back to the Super Bowl.

Lynch has even more physical talent but not enough reps for Elway and Kubiak to definitively conclude whether he is the next Jake Locker...or Jared Goff. Releasing him to take on another QB project would be premature.

Keenum is either a bridge to an improved version of himself or to Lynch...the Broncos won't be drafting a QB at #5. This year, at least.

I agree mostly but Lynch is burnt toast.

Well a two year contract does say he is a bridge....if baker mayfield is available at 5 they are taking him....

Possibly but in some ways it would have been crazy to give him more than 2 years even if they believe in him, based on his career.  And no other team was going to offer much more than that so why give a longer contract then they have to.

How are people feeling about Case in Denver? In a 2 QB league and thinking about trying to trade for him as a second QB (QB's are hoarded so pickings are a bit slim).  Seems like he has decent weapons, could have pretty good season, but also a little concerning Minny didn't seem too interested in bringing him back.

After watching Eli Manning's inept performance in last night's match vs. Eagles, I wouldn't be surprised if Giants' GM Gettleman / HC Shurmur would at least make a phone call to Broncos GM Elway to inquire the trade availability of Keenum.  It's obvious that Broncos don't know how to cater to his strengths (i.e. more play-action).  Hopefully, Elway would listen and relent to whatever their trade offer and start swagging with Chad Kelly.

The Giants are not good. No way they trade for a guy like Keenum. They're going to to get a high pick in next year's draft and take their QB then. Why ruin that?

Case Keenum completed 25-of-41 passes for 322 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Broncos' 23-20, Week 6 loss to the Rams.

It was Keenum's second-straight 300-yard game, though he hardly looked good doing it. A huge chunk of Keenum's yards came on a pair of underthrown deep balls to Demaryius Thomas and Courtland Sutton. Keenum's arm appeared limited all afternoon. Keenum briefly checked out at the end of the first half as he was evaluated for a concussion, but he thankfully cleared. With just eight total touchdowns through six games, Keenum is barely staying on the QB2 radar. He gets the Cardinals on Thursday Night Football for Week 7.

Coach Vance Joseph remains committed to Case Keenum as the Broncos' starting quarterback.

"Case is our quarterback," Joseph said after yet another Broncos loss on Sunday. Keenum was checked for a concussion at the end of the first half, and sophomore Chad Kelly came into a standing ovation from Broncos fans to kneel it out on the final play of the second quarter. Kelly was also tremendous in the preseason. Keenum hasn't been the worst of the Broncos' problems, but his play also leaves the rest of the team zero margin for error since he's simply unable to deliver anything more than mediocre quarterbacking. There haven't been more than a couple worse starting quarterbacks in the league through six weeks. Keenum is tied for the league lead with eight interceptions, and only Josh Allen and Marcus Mariota have worse passer ratings.

Case Keenum completed 14-of-21 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Broncos' 45-10, Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Keenum added four carries for four yards. They're disappointing numbers considering the lopsided nature of the score, though five Cardinals turnovers kept setting the Broncos up with gorgeous field position, limiting Keenum's yardage opportunities. The Broncos' defense also housed a pair of pick sixes. Lastly, Emmanuel Sanders threw a 28-yard touchdown on a trick play. Keenum has been barely playable in two-quarterback leagues this season, but he will be a top-18 option against the Chiefs' barely-there defense in Week 8.
