2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

December 1, 2020
The Broncos activated Lock (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Lock was placed on the list after the rest of the Broncos quarterback room was deemed to be high-risk close contacts of Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19 last Thursday. All of Lock, Brett Rypien and practice-squad member Blake Bortles were ineligible to play this past Sunday against the Saints, leaving QB in the hands of practice-squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton. With Lock back in the building, he'll be under center for Denver's next game Sunday night at Kansas City.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.
