Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock did not play particularly well in his last game, and fantasy owners will look for him to turn it around on Sunday. If you’re one of those fantasy players deciding what to do with Lock this weekend, let’s take a closer look.

Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos QB Drew Lock

In Week 7’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Lock completed 24 of 40 passes for 254 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had a rushing touchdown and ran for eight yards on three attempts. He did not look very good throwing the ball through the snowy weather.

Looking ahead to Sunday, Lock and the Broncos will play the Los Angeles Chargers at home. In its last game, Los Angeles allowed 173 yards and two touchdowns to Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew. He completed 14 of 27 passes in the game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Lock is a low-end second quarterback at best for fantasy purposes.
