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.

Ahead of schedule in recovery

October 14, 2019
Lock (thumb) has been throwing for the past two weeks and is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab program, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
ANALYSIS
After being placed on injured reserve following the conclusion of the preseason, Lock is eligible to begin practicing this week. Even if he does get in some on-field reps with the rest of the team, Lock's real test in practice won't come until Week 8, as the Broncos will face a quick turnaround for a Thursday night matchup with the Chiefs in Week 7. The Broncos can bring Lock back from IR as early as Week 9, but there's no guarantee the rookie will see any meaningful action this season, especially if starter Joe Flacco continues to keep Denver reasonably competitive.
