Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum has been working hard during organized team activities to learn his new offense under offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. "Case is working hard," Musgrave said. "It's a new system for him, it's a new system for everybody. Case is getting — exclusively — all the reps with the ones. We're not splitting them like you would if you didn't have an established starter, so he's getting more concentrated work, and it's paying dividends." Keenum had a career year in Minnesota last year, throwing for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns in 15 games. He'll surely make Denver's offense better than it was last year, which will help receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, but Keenum is still more of a QB2 target from a fantasy perspective.
Free-agent quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency opens on Wednesday, according to sources. Keenum won't be back with the Vikings in 2018 after surprisingly leading the team to an NFC title appearance, as Minnesota is expected to land free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. Known as more of a game manager, the 30-year-old Keenum racked up 3,547 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 15 games last year. He'll be the favorite to start in Denver next season, but the Broncos could also draft a quarterback early and have him compete with Keenum in training camp. While Keenum can put up decent numbers for fantasy owners in the right matchups, he's mostly a fantasy backup. Receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders disappointed last year due to poor quarterback play and injuries, and while Keenum won't drastically improve their outlooks, he shouldn't hurt them as much as the trio of Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler did.
Free-agent quarterback Case Keenum could become a candidate for the New York Jets if they lose out on free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. Re-signing quarterback Josh McCown is another option for Gang Green. Keenum surprised everyone and led the Vikes to the NFC title game in 2017, going 325-for-481 for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions in 15 games. He was helped by Minnesota's solid core of receivers, though, and he remains more of a game manager. Moving to New York would make him far less attractive to fantasy owners.
