Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum received the first snap during team drills Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Keenum will compete with Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job during training camp. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Redskins quarterback situation in drafts, but Haskins likely will have some value in keeper leagues.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum will be acquired by the Washington Redskins in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source. The Redskins will also receive a 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the deal. Keenum has also agreed to restructure his contract. The Broncos will pay $3.5 million of his 2019 salary, while the Redskins will pay the other $3.5 million. He will also receive a $500,000 bonus from the Broncos.
Huddle Up: Keenum likely will compete for the starting quarterback job with Colt McCoy during training camp, but neither quarterback is a strong fantasy option.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum is receiving trade interest from the Washington Redskins, and both teams are motivated to make the trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Keenum likely would compete with Colt McCoy for the starting quarterback job next season. Owners in fantasy leagues probably can avoid the situation since neither quarterback would be a starting option.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum could be traded this offseason, but general manager John Elway prefers to keep Keenum. If Keenum were to stay he would likely need to agree to a pay cut or restructured deal in the $7 million range (plus incentives), according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.
Huddle Up: Keenum is in an awkward position with Joe Flacco expected to start. He struggled mightily in his first year in Denver but has shown starter prowess elsewhere. Nonetheless, Keenum is not on the fantasy radar at this time.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum said in a podcast posted Thuesday, Feb. 22, that he was 'shocked' when general manager John Elway called him the previous week to inform him that the team was trading for Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco. As a result, there is now rampant speculation that Keenum will be traded or released, and he said he is preparing for a number of options. 'You know, really, it's really open-ended right now,' Keenum said of his future. 'We don't know what's going to happen, there's still a lot up in the air. This is really fresh. So a lot of these emotions that we're talking about are still kind of going on, still happening. So who knows what's going to be in store? I don't for sure,. God does. But we'll be ready for whatever God has in store for us next.'
Huddle Up: Although he didn't have much around him in Denver by late last season, Keenum disappointed in fantasy and reality. Look for him to be dealt for a low-round draft pick and serve as a backup, most likely providing a veteran option behind a young QB.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum could likely be obtained in a trade for a fifth-round draft pick, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Thursday, Feb. 14. Keenum could be one of the top backups in the league, according to Motensen, and the Tennessee Titans would be an ideal landing spot.
Huddle Up: Titans starting QB Marcus Mariota hasn't played a full year in any of his four pro seasons so far, and he missed three starts this past season with injuries, so Keenum would certainly project as better option than current backup Blaine Gabbert, who had a 74.9 rating and threw as many interceptions (four) as TD passes while making a trio of starts.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum claims he isn't overly concerned about the rumors that the team is seeking to add another quarterback following Keenum's uneven first season as the team's starter. 'I follow a little bit of it. I take it for what it's worth,' Keenum said recently in an interview posted on the team's official website. 'It's not something that's affecting me and my preparation and how I'm ready to go as a football player and what my job is. It's not affecting my job. For me, I take more of what my coaches say and the meetings that we've had. I had a great meeting with John [Elway] at the end of the year and we've all got to be better. That's hands down what it comes down to. I was mad just like every other Broncos fan watching all these playoff games and us sitting at home. I feel the same way that we've all got to be better.'
Huddle Up: Elway is feeling mounting pressure to find a longer-term solution under center after the likes of Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch and, now, Keenum haven't appeared to be the answer since Peyton Manning's heydays. With Keenum's two-year deal running through next season, most signs point to the Broncos adding a rookie QB -- possibly a first-rounder -- to pair with the veteran Keenum next season.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has a chance to play well in the team's new offensive system, according offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello.
Huddle Up: Keenum threw for 3,890 yards this season but was held to only 18 touchdowns in 16 games. The Broncos may look to add another quarterback this offseason, so it is not known if Keenum will be with the team next season. Owners in fantasy leagues can avoid Keenum next season even if he is still the starter for Denver.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum is still the starting quarterback for the time being, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Granted, Fangio's statement doesn't exactly mean much heading into the offseason, and after Keenum threw 18 touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions in 2018, he is anything but a lock to remain the long-term starter in Denver. If he does open 2019 under center for the Broncos, he will only be a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners.

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum completed 23 of 37 passes for 202 yards to go with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the club's Week 16 loss Monday, Dec. 24, versus the Oakland Raiders. He also contributed 19 rushing yards on three carries.
Huddle Up: The unspectacular outing continues what has been a downward slide in the season's second half for Keenum since losing Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Thus, it's hard to consider him anything other than a QB2 heading into the final week.
