Broncos coach Vance Joseph wants Case Keenum to be more aggressive and worry less about mistakes.
Oh no. "He’s got to take more chances downfield," Joseph said Monday. "He would agree with that." This is what coaches have been trying to coach out of Keenum for several years. A more aggressive Keenum would likely be a spectacularly-inept Keenum. The game manager's real problem for the final three games of the season is his nearly empty cupboard of weapons.

Case Keenum completed 24-of-42 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' 20-14, Week 14 loss to the 49ers.

Adjusting to life without security blanket Emmanuel Sanders, Keenum made a bad 49ers passing defense look good. He entered halftime a truly embarrassing 7-of-15 for 43 yards. Keenum, of course, has precious few weapons at this disposal. His numbers would have been even worse had the Broncos not converted a few fourth downs. Keenum had zero upside even before Sanders' injury, and his No. 1 wideout's loss further lowers his floor. How tough of a matchup the Browns are for Week 15 will depend on Denzel Ward's (concussion) health.
Dec 9 - 7:39 PM

Case Keenum completed 12-of-21 passes for 151 yards and one score as the Broncos defeated the Bengals handily in Week 13.

Despite being in a plus matchup against Cincinnati's injury-riddled secondary, Keenum ultimately wasn't asked to do much as the Broncos rode Phillip Lindsay (19/157/2) and Royce Freeman (12/48) to victory. Keenum didn't even look to Emmanuel Sanders (4/19) all too often, instead chunking high-upside grenades to explosive rookie Courtland Sutton (4/85/1) down the sidelines and into the end zone. Keenum has another tasty matchup against San Francisco's secondary next week, but it's clear the Broncos prefer to take the weight off his shoulders and back Lindsay as they continue to push for the postseason. Keenum is merely a borderline QB2 in 2-QB leagues in Week 14.
Dec 2 - 5:34 PM

Case Keenum completed 15-of-28 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 12 win over the Steelers.

Keenum did not have much success early in this one and missed Emmanuel Sanders on what should have been a big gain, but he was able to find Matt LaCosse on back-to-back throws late in the second quarter for the Broncos first touchdown of the game. Following a slow start in the second half, Keenum made the most of his defense gifting him a short field off an interception, hitting Sanders for a 38-yard catch before finding him one play later for a five-yard touchdown. Following another Pittsburgh turnover, Keenum led a long scoring drive to give the Broncos the lead in the fourth quarter. He did not have to do much, but he did enough to secure an important win. With the Bengals on deck next week, Keenum will be a viable streaming option.
Nov 25 - 7:53 PM

Case Keenum completed 19-of-32 passes for 205 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 victory over the Chargers.

Keenum faced pressure from Joey Bosa all day, but was never sacked. The 30-year-old got off to a sluggish start, completing just nine of 17 throws for 56 scoreless yards in the first half. Keenum found a little more daylight after halftime, however, reviving Emmanuel Sanders after he was invisible for much of the first three quarters. The first-year Bronco was money on the final drive, converting five of six passes (the lone incompletion came when he spiked it to stop the clock with three seconds remaining) for 86 yards as the Broncos walked it off on a game-winning field goal by Brandon McManus. Keenum and the 4-6 Broncos host Pittsburgh in Week 12.
Nov 18 - 7:28 PM

Case Keenum completed 26-of-42 passes for 290 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Texans.

It was a shrug-inducing day for Keenum, who at least notched the one score to make his outing semi-respectable. He ultimately missed a few downfield throws (as he's one to do) and wasn't helped any on a deep touchdown-drop by rookie Courtland Sutton. Demaryius Thomas' absence didn't seem to faze him any, though, as he instead locked in on TE Jeff Heuerman (10/83/1) for a team-high 11 targets. Keenum's now thrown an even number of touchdowns and picks (11) this season. He'll again be a viable streamer when the Broncos return from their bye and face the Chargers in Week 11.
Nov 4 - 9:24 PM

Case Keenum completed 22-of-32 passes for 262 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding a nine-yard carry Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 8 loss to Kansas City.

He lost 40 yards on five sacks. Keenum had his deep ball working, especially when he uncorked a 49-yard bomb to Emmanuel Sanders on the opening drive. He also connected on a 42-yard heave to Courtland Sutton later in the afternoon. The 30-year-old slung a couple of touchdowns as well—one to Jeff Heuerman and another to undrafted receiver Tim Patrick—but fantasy owners likely could have done without his two turnovers. Both miscues—a fumble on a Dee Ford strip-sack and an interception off a flea-flicker to Demaryius Thomas—came with Denver trailing in the fourth quarter. Keenum has now thrown 10 touchdowns against 11 picks this season. The 3-5 Broncos will look to bounce back when they return home to face Houston in Week 9.
Oct 28 - 4:39 PM

Case Keenum completed 14-of-21 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Broncos' 45-10, Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Keenum added four carries for four yards. They're disappointing numbers considering the lopsided nature of the score, though five Cardinals turnovers kept setting the Broncos up with gorgeous field position, limiting Keenum's yardage opportunities. The Broncos' defense also housed a pair of pick sixes. Lastly, Emmanuel Sanders threw a 28-yard touchdown on a trick play. Keenum has been barely playable in two-quarterback leagues this season, but he will be a top-18 option against the Chiefs' barely-there defense in Week 8.
Oct 18 - 11:56 PM

Coach Vance Joseph remains committed to Case Keenum as the Broncos' starting quarterback.

"Case is our quarterback," Joseph said after yet another Broncos loss on Sunday. Keenum was checked for a concussion at the end of the first half, and sophomore Chad Kelly came into a standing ovation from Broncos fans to kneel it out on the final play of the second quarter. Kelly was also tremendous in the preseason. Keenum hasn't been the worst of the Broncos' problems, but his play also leaves the rest of the team zero margin for error since he's simply unable to deliver anything more than mediocre quarterbacking. There haven't been more than a couple worse starting quarterbacks in the league through six weeks. Keenum is tied for the league lead with eight interceptions, and only Josh Allen and Marcus Mariota have worse passer ratings. Joseph and Keenum will go down with arms linked.
Oct 14 - 7:44 PM

Case Keenum completed 25-of-41 passes for 322 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Broncos' 23-20, Week 6 loss to the Rams.

It was Keenum's second-straight 300-yard game, though he hardly looked good doing it. A huge chunk of Keenum's yards came on a pair of underthrown deep balls to Demaryius Thomas and Courtland Sutton. Keenum's arm appeared limited all afternoon. Keenum briefly checked out at the end of the first half as he was evaluated for a concussion, but he thankfully cleared. With just eight total touchdowns through six games, Keenum is barely staying on the QB2 radar. He gets the Cardinals on Thursday Night Football for Week 7.
Oct 14 - 7:35 PM

Case Keenum completed 35-of-51 passes for 377 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Broncos' Week 5 loss to the Jets.

There is a major gap between reality and Keenum's stat line; he was dreadfully inaccurate when this game was in doubt, took four sacks, fumbled twice, and was a major part of the problem in the Broncos' 34-16 loss. Keenum padded his stats with a garbage-time 42-yard touchdown to Demaryius Thomas. Still not yet the subject of benching rumors, Keenum will be a two-quarterback-league play in next week's potential shootout against the Rams.
Oct 7 - 5:54 PM

Case Keenum completed 21-of-33 passes for 245 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Broncos' 27-23, Week 4 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night.

The Broncos held what looked like a pretty commanding 23-13 lead with just over 12 minutes left, but then Patrick Mahomes happened and led an incredible comeback as Keenum simultaneously collapsed. This was as good of an on-paper matchup as Keenum is going to see this season. The Chiefs were playing the worst pass defense in the league entering Week 4, and Keenum was unable to attack it. He had one big shot to Courtland Sutton early for 42 yards, but that was about it. Keenum then missed a wide-open Demaryius Thomas with less than a minute to play on what should have been a walk-in 28-yard touchdown. Keenum has been dreadful four weeks into his Broncos career, tossing six picks to three touchdowns. He hasn't thrown for a score since Week 1 and won't be a fantasy option next week at the Jets.
Oct 1 - 11:20 PM

Case Keenum completed 22-of-34 passes for 192 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception in the Broncos' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Keenum was not good in this one. Consistently settling for the short pass amid pressure, Keenum had just 104 yards heading into the fourth quarter. After two touchdowns to open the game -- one set up by a blocked punt -- the Broncos punted seven straight times. The next play ended when Keenum was picked off on second-and-goal from the 15, and the final drive ended on fourth down deep in Baltimore territory. The good news is Keenum will get to face the Chiefs' defense at home next Monday night.
Sep 23 - 4:29 PM

Case Keenum (knee) was left off the final injury report for Week 3.

Keenum did not practice Wednesday, but there was never any real concern about his availability. He will be a back-end QB2 in a tough matchup against the Ravens this week.
Sep 21 - 7:57 PM

Case Keenum (knee) resumed practicing on Thursday.

He was "full." Keenum's absence was always believed to be precautionary. It's unideal that Keenum already needs his practice reps rationed, but he will be out there for a tough matchup with the Ravens. Keenum is a fringe Week 3 starter in two-quarterback leagues.
