Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum averaged 16.1 fantasy points over his last five games before the team's Week 10 bye. But, more importantly, he went into the bye on the heels of his first interception-free game of the season. Keenum told the media, "Its fire-all-the-bullets-in-the-chamber... time for this offense, but unfortunately, he'll draw a Chargers defense which has limited opposing QBs to one or fewer touchdown pass in four of their last five contests while accumulating five interceptions and 18 sacks. He's trending upward, but consider Keenum a low-end, 2-QB league option in advance of this less than favorable road matchup.
Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum completed 26 of 42 pass attempts for 290 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday. Keenum was largely underwhelming for the majority of the afternoon, but managed to finish the game interception-free for the first time this season and led the Broncos on what wouldve been a game-winning drive had kicker Brandon McManus been able to connect on a 51-yard field goal attempt as time expired. Keenum and the Broncos get a Week 10 bye before heading to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers in Week 11.
Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum has still failed to complete a game this season in which he did not complete a pass to the opposing team. That's not good. What is good is the fact that Keenum has averaged 280.5 passing yards over the Broncos last four contests while tossing seven touchdowns (four interceptions). Houston has allowed just 13 passing touchdowns on the season (tied for the eleventh-fewest), but are dealing with a number of injuries on the defensive side of the ball and have been susceptible to giving up yards through the air at various points throughout the season. There are likely safer streaming options available in 10/12-team leagues, but Keenum could provide solid value in deeper leagues and 2-QB formats this week.
