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.

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.

Case Keenum (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the DNP is "precautionary," and Keenum is expected to practice Thursday and play Sunday in Baltimore. Keenum guided a late Week 2 comeback in the win over the Raiders but is a low QB2.
Sep 19 - 1:45 PM

Case Keenum completed 19-of-35 passes for 222 yards with an interception in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Raiders.

Keenum added 16 yards rushing and a touchdown on the ground. After a quiet first half in which he completed just 5-of-11 passes for 38 yards, Keenum bounced back in the second half to complete 14-of-24 passes for 184 yards and lead the Broncos on four scoring drives. Keenum will be a lower-end QB2 for fantasy in Week 3 on the road versus the Ravens.
Sep 16 - 7:45 PM

Case Keenum completed 25-of-39 passes for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Broncos' Week 1 win over the Seahawks.

After throwing just seven interceptions last season, Keenum did not start off on the right foot with his new team. He made up for it with a 75-yard drive he capped with a four-yard touchdown, his third of the game, to Demaryius Thomas to put Denver ahead for good. With Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who had a 10/135/1 line on Sunday, to target, Keenum will be worth streaming consideration in good matchups all season. He gets one of those next week against the Raiders.
Sep 9 - 7:51 PM

Case Keenum completed 12-of-18 passes for 148 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Keenum was sharp in this one, leading three scoring drives on Denver's first four possessions. He especially showed a connection with Emmanuel Sanders, who caught four of his passes for 61 yards. Keenum might not be as good as he was last season in Minnesota, but he has looked solid this preseason and has good weapons around him. He is a better option than he gets credit for in two-quarterback formats.

Broncos signed QB Case Keenum, formerly of the Vikings, to a two-year, $36 million contract.

The deal is considerably less than what Kirk Cousins is expected to command. That could be why Denver decided to go with Keenum before even having Cousins in for a visit, or they may have already been out of the running. Either way, they are moving forward with Keenum, who they were interested in trading for a couple years ago and has a relationship with senior personnel advisor Gary Kubiak from their days together in Houston. This move should not preclude the Broncos from using the No. 5 overall pick on a quarterback.
Mar 13 - 1:23 AM's Kimberly Jones reports the Jets could be interested in free agent Case Keenum if they miss out on Kirk Cousins.

Per Jones, Josh McCown also remains a fallback option. The Jets are not the favorites for Cousins, but should at least get an audience.
Mar 12 - 2:54 PM

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, free agent Case Keenum can "likely be had" for $16-18 million annually.

Keenum is looking at a big raise after leading Minnesota to the NFC title game last season. He's been linked to the Broncos, who could view Keenum as a fallback for Kirk Cousins. Keenum has a connection to Denver senior personnel advisor Gary Kubiak, who helped sign Keenum as an undrafted free agent with Houston in 2012.
Mar 11 - 9:53 AM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos are "interested in" free agent Case Keenum.

Keenum would obviously be a secondary option to Kirk Cousins when free agency opens, but with Cousins possibly leaning toward signing with the Vikings, teams need to be making contingency plans. Klis doesn't know if Keenum is the Broncos' "Plan B" after Cousins, but he does believe Denver is interested in Keenum. There's a connection in Denver, with Gary Kubiak as senior personnel advisor to GM John Elway. Kubiak gave Keenum his NFL start with the Texans and spoke highly of Keenum in January. Keenum could land $16-20 million per year.
Mar 7 - 11:56 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Vikings are not expected to place the franchise tag on Case Keenum.

Interestingly, this report comes just hours after's Gil Brandt reported the Vikings and free agent Kirk Cousins have mutual interest. Of course, the Vikings could still bring back Keenum on a long-term deal, but it looks like they are leaving their options open heading into free agency. Minnesota has around $55 million in cap space.
Feb 26 - 12:22 PM

New Vikings OC John DeFilippo said his offensive system is "flexible."

Talking about Minnesota's quarterback options, DeFilippo said he will adapt his offense to whatever happens at the position. "I spend a lot of time on really getting to know what our players do well so we can put them in the best position to succeed," DeFilippo said. "We’ll never try to ask our players to do something he can’t do well." The coordinator had good things to say about both Case Keenum and Sam Bradford, but he kept his cards close to the vest. The Vikings are also expected to be interested in Kirk Cousins.
Feb 22 - 9:31 AM

According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, free agent Case Keenum "still seems to be the favorite" to return as the Vikings' starting quarterback in 2018.

Based on his comments, OC John DeFilippo seems to prefer an "athletic quarterback with ability to extend plays." Keenum and Kirk Cousins both fit that profile, though Keenum would obviously come at a much cheaper cost. Walters feels it would be "out of character" for the Vikings to get into a bidding war and expects Cousins to sign wherever he can get the most money. Minnesota blocked QBs coach Kevin Stefanski from joining Pat Shurmur in New York, which could be a sign the Vikings would like to keep the status quo by retaining Keenum.
Feb 18 - 10:16 AM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer would not commit to re-signing Case Keenum Tuesday at his year-end press conference.

When asked if Keenum deserved to be the team's starter next year, all Zimmer could muster was, "We're going to work through the process." Keenum struggled against the Eagles in Sunday's NFC Championship but was solid throughout the year, finishing second in the league in completion percentage and seventh in quarterback rating. Of course, Keenum had never been a full-time starter before this year and turns 30 next month. Whether it's from the Vikings or another team, Keenum should get a huge raise this offseason after earning just $2 million in 2017.
