FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: TREVOR SIEMIAN QB DENVER BRONCOS

When NFL training camps got underway this summer, it was widely assumed that veteran Mark Sanchez would earn the starting QB job with the Denver Broncos over the untested second-year man Trevor Siemian.  While Sanchez was far from dependable, his vast experience edge over the former 7th round pick out of Northwestern would surely win out.  Well as the preseason went along, it became clear that Siemian was the better passer and thus it was no surprise in the end when he was officially named the starter.  Still the designation carried zero fantasy football positivity as Siemian was way too green of a passer to defend on in our fake game and this despite the fact he was surrounded by big-time offensive talent such as wideouts Demaryuis Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and C.J. Anderson.

Fast forward three weeks and what we have now is a QB in Siemian who all of a sudden became a hot waiver target in fantasy football leagues all across the country.  That is what will happen when you go out and throw FOUR touchdown passes and 312 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals.  Showing big-time poise and accuracy in the pocket, Siemian looked like a young Peyton Manning as he helped both Thomas and Sanders go over 100 yards.  For the season now, Siemian has 5 touchdown passes and 3 interceptions and he has a great matchup versus the porous Tampa Bay Buc's defense this week.  Those in two-QB formats now should get the green light to start using Siemian, while those in single-passer leagues should bring him aboard as a backup.  Keep in mind that with Thomas and Sanders on the outside and Anderson's running keeping defenders honest, Siemian has one of the best setups in the game for a passer.  Completing 65.7 percent of his throws, Siemian's accuracy is his best attribute and helps overcome a moderate throwing arm.  Be that as it may, Siemian is no a story worth checking out this week and perhaps beyond.
