Jeff Driskel Efficient In Relief Of Drew Lock

Denver Broncos quarterback Jeff Driskel led an unlikely comeback against the Steelers in Week 2 that ultimately fell short after Drew Lock (shoulder) was injured. Driskel took six sacks and absorbed 17 hits from a ferocious Pittsburgh defense, but the Broncos were 15 yards away from a stunning upset on the road. With Lock out at least several weeks, Driskel will continue to lead Denver's offense, beginning in Week 3 against the Buccaneers. In the end, he completed 18 of 34 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the 26-21 loss, adding two rushes for five yards. Even though Driskel exceeded expectations in a tough situation, he'll be low-end QB2 streamer going forward in superflex leagues.

Broncos Reach Agreement With Jeff Driskel

The Denver Broncos reached an undisclosed agreement with quarterback Jeff Driskel on Tuesday, according to a source. Driskel wound up playing three games for the Lions last year when Matthew Stafford (back) was lost for the season. The soon-to-be 27-year-old signal-caller was 62-for-105 (59 percent) for 685 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions for a weak QB rating of 75.3. The former sixth-round pick of the 49ers can extend plays with his legs, but he'll compete for a backup job in Denver behind Drew Lock. He could be competing against Brandon Allen if the Broncos choose to re-sign him.

Jeff Driskel Heads To Injured Reserve

The Detroit Lions placed quarterback Jeff Driskel (hamstring) on Injured Reserve on Saturday and signed quarterback Kyle Sloter to the active roster from the Cardinals practice squad in a corresponding move. Detroit also signed quarterback Joe Callahan to the practice squad. Driskel wasn't terrible in a couple outings in place of Matthew Stafford (back), and he showed an ability to use his legs to extend plays. David Blough exceeded expectations on Thanksgiving in the loss to the Bears, but he'll be a low-end QB2 for however long Stafford remains out. Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones both found the end zone in Blough's first start, but don't expect that kind of high-end production the rest of the way if Blough closes out the year under center.
