Drew Lock
24-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Denver Broncos
2021 Fantasy Outlook
After missing most of his rookie season to injury, Lock started 13 games last year but did not impress. And that’s putting it mildly. He was last in the league for both completion percentage (57.3) and on-target percentage (66.6) and tied for the lead in interceptions (15). Nine of those INTs came under pressure where he had 
7.9 passer rating, the lowest in the league since 2007 when the stat first started being tracked. The team traded for Teddy Bridgewater, who will compete for the starting job. Whoever starts Week 1 will have a skilled set of receivers to target behind a solid offensive line. Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and TE Noah Fant are more than capable pass-catchers, and speedster KJ Hamler, a 2020 second-round pick, could develop too. It's now or never for Lock.

To battle Bridgewater for job

Coach Vic Fangio said Lock and recent acquisition Teddy Bridgewater will split reps "50-50" during the offseason program and training camp, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
ANALYSIS
After making no additions to the quarterback room during the draft, the Broncos have settled on a Lock-Bridgewater battle under center. Lock has had a rocky and banged-up first two years in the NFL, completing 59.1 percent of his passes for 3,953 yards, 23 touchdowns and 18 interceptions through 18 starts. He even tied Carson Wentz for the league lead with 15 picks during the 2020 season. Denver invested the 42nd overall pick in the 2019 draft in Lock, but it may want to see what the less flashy but steadier Bridgewater can do with the offense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A preseason thumb injury put Lock on injured reserve for 10 weeks last year, but he returned late in the season to go 4-1 in December. The 2019 second-round pick had his moments but was mostly no better than average, with one great game, one bad game and three mediocre games. Lock struggled with accuracy at Missouri (56.9 completion percentage), but last season completed 64.1 percent of his 156 attempts. However, he rarely showed off his strong arm, attempting just 13 passes longer than 20 yards, completing three. Part of that was due to a lack of playmakers, as Courtland Sutton was Lock's only weapon. The Broncos used this year's draft to stock their skill positions. They drafted Jerry Jeudy (4.45 40) with the 15th overall pick, added speedster KJ Hamler in the second round, and in the fourth round took 6-5 TE Albert Okwuegbunam, a college teammate of Lock's. The team also signed Melvin Gordon to strengthen the running game alongside Phillip Lindsay. Lock has a new offensive coordinator this year too in Pat Shurmur, who tutored Daniel Jones in New York to a promising rookie season. At 6-4, 228, Lock is a good athlete, but he probably won't run enough to significantly boost his fantasy numbers.
A second-round pick in this year's draft, Lock won't compete in training camp with Joe Flacco for the starting job, but the rookie could see the field later this year for the Broncos. The team views Lock as its quarterback of the future, and Flacco is 34 years old and on the downside of his career after losing the starting job in Baltimore to Lamar Jackson. The Broncos have no need to rush Lock and seem content to let him develop slowly. At 6-4, 228, the rookie has prototypical size, arm strength and athleticism (4.69 40), but he struggled with accuracy (56.9 completion percentage) at Missouri. Neither quarterback seems likely to get much help from a thin receiving corps with Emmanuel Sanders still recovering from an Achilles injury, though there is some hope for second-year wideouts Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton to develop alongside rookie tight end Noah Fant.
