2018 Fantasy Outlook
It took an injury to Sam Bradford for Keenum to become the starter last season, but once he took the reins it looked like he should've had them all along. Keenum finished second in the league in completion percentage and guided the Vikings to the NFC championship game. He did it by protecting the ball (4th in INT rate), staying poised in the pocket (5th in passer rating vs. the blitz) and dominating in the red zone (3rd in passer rating), where he took just two sacks and was one of five QBs with at least 16 touchdowns and no interceptions. Keenum struggled throwing beyond 20 yards downfield, though, ranking 29th in both completion percentage (24.4) and YPA (8.2). It was still enough for the Broncos to give him a two-year, $36 million contract. In Denver, he has top-notch wideouts in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and the team drafted 6-4 Courtland Sutton in the second round. After more interceptions (22) than TD passes (19) last year, the Broncos at least have a quarterback who will take care of the ball. But unless Keenum's downfield skills improve, his fantasy stock looks limited, even with more attempts as the 16-game starter. Read Past Outlooks

Keenum (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Keenum's availability for this weekend's game against the Ravens is in no peril and he'll look to bounce back from a subpar fantasy outing in Week 2, in which he completed 19 of 35 pass attempts for 222 yards and an interception in a 20-19 win over Oakland. He'll be taking aim Sunday at a Baltimore defense that embarrassed the Bills in a 47-3 triumph in Week 1, then turned around surrendered four passing TDs to the Bengals in a 34-23 loss this past Sunday.

2012
Keenum was signed by the Vikings during the offseason to serve as starting quarterback Sam Bradford's backup, but that all depends on the health of former first-rounder Teddy Bridgewater (knee). Keenum, who began his 2016 campaign as the Rams' starting quarterback, threw for 2,201 yards, nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions while completing 60.9 percent of his passes before he was benched in favor of last year's first overall pick, Jared Goff. Hopefully for Minnesota, Keenum won't need to be thrusted back into a starting role, but he's capable of providing quality depth behind Bradford for as long as Bridgewater remains sidelined.
After an incredibly productive college career at the University of Houston and a few seasons on the bench with his hometown Texans, Keenum wound up in St. Louis last season and eventually found himself in the starting lineup when Nick Foles completely fell apart. While his decision making and ability to limit mistakes served him well as a backup, Keenum's lack of size and arm strength prevent him from profiling as a true starting-caliber QB in the NFL, and the organization made it clear what they thought of both him and Foles when they paid a king's ransom to trade up to the first overall pick for Jared Goff. Foles is now on the trading block, but the Rams' heavy investment in Goff should ensure he's the Week 1 starter, potentially leaving Keenum as the most experienced option behind a rookie QB. The Rams' offense will mainly be in the hands of Todd Gurley, both to limit Goff's exposure and due to the lack of dangerous receiving options on the roster. Even if Goff struggles and Keenum is pressed into service once again, there's no reason to expect much improvement on his 2015 numbers.
Keenum started a pair of games for Houston in 2014 but didn't have much success, throwing for 435 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He's most likely to get the backup spot out of him, Austin Davis and Sean Mannion, but it's unlikely he will see the field much.
Keenum, who finished the 2013 season as the Texans' starting quarterback, was first dropped to the top backup slot behind veteran newcomer Ryan Fitzpatrick, and then eventually let go when Ryan Mallett was acquired by the team in August. He was subsequently claimed on waivers by the Rams to work behind Shaun Hill.
Keenum will serve as Houston's third quarterback in 2013 season, playing behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates.
Keenum signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Houston where he led the nation in yards (5,631) and touchdowns (48) in 2011. He enters training camp needing to adjust to life under center in the NFL and will compete with John Beck to be Houston's third-string quarterback. After starter Matt Schaub, the Texans get pretty young at the position. Probably younger than a conference-title contender wants to be, which may work in Beck's favor.
