Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock is throwing five days a week at a spot near his parents' home in Kansas City, during the coronavirus shutdown and has been studying the team's new offensive playbook while watching recent New York Giants film with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur coming aboard.
Huddle Up: Lock's real-life performance (7 TDs, 3 INTs; 4-1 record) was better than his fantasy one as he averaged only 17.2 fantasy points per contest (32nd among QBs) over his five starts to end the 2019 season. He's a QB2 consideration, though, entering his second season with a new three-WR-based offense which should lead to more throwing.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock was on the New York Giants' radar during the 2019 draft, and now Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, the former Giants head coach, says he's eager to pair with Lock. 'I'm very excited about being able to work with Drew Lock,' Shurmur said Thursday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: Lock averaged 17.2 points per game during his five starts as a rookie last season, and should be on the low-end QB2 radar heading into 2020.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock said Friday, Jan. 31, he is excited about the potential of the team's offense with the hiring of offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula., both formerly with the New York Giants. 'I tried to watch as many New York games [as possible], with Daniel (Jones) being a friend of mine,' Lock said. 'It's pretty explosive. They throw the ball down the field. Daniel did himself some running. I'm excited to be able to scoot around a little bit. We'll see how they morph it to fit our personnel and our style and what they think might be best for our team, but I'm confident that they're going to put together a good plan and be ready to go for us.'
Huddle Up: Lock went 4-1 as a starter after taking over late in the season in 2019, but didn't exactly set the fantasy world on fire, averaging only 17.2 fantasy points per outing. He'll be a low-end QB2 consideration with upside in drafts this summer.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock had his wisdom teeth surgically removed this week, postponing an offseason advice-seeking visit with retired QB Peyton Manning, the latter said Friday, Jan. 24, in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: Lock started the final five games of his rookie season, and showed well, winning four of them while throwing for 1,020 yards, seven TD passes and three interceptions. He should enter the 2020 season as the Broncos' starter and a lower-end QB2 prospect in fantasy.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock faces the Detroit Lions in Week 16, and the Lions have allowed the second-most passing yards and fourth-most passing touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: It has been a mixed bag for Lock through his first three NFL starts, but he was able to shred the Houston Texans for 309 yards and three scores. Detroit has been even worse than Houston at defending the pass, giving Lock some sleeper appeal in DFS contests.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock completed 22 of his 27 passes for 309 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 38-24 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14. He also rushed three times for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: It is an encouraging start for Lock, who has five touchdowns and two interceptions in his first two games. He is still hard to trust in redraft leagues, but he could end up being a solid asset in keeper leagues.
