Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos QB Drew Lock
That blowup against the Panthers a couple of weeks ago told us more about Carolina’s defense than about Lock. Even if you include that game, Lock has compiled an 8:9 touchdown-to-turnover ratio in his last five outings. The Bills held him to just 132 passing yards and one touchdown. He also fumbled the ball away once and took three sacks. The Broncos still possess a talented group of skill-position players; Lock just isn’t good enough right now to make that matter much for fantasy. The Chargers’ defense mirrors the Bills’ in some ways: They hit quarterbacks at a similar rate and are allowing just about the same DraftKings points per game to the position. However, the Chargers pressure QBs better, so Lock may be under even more duress in this game, which will inevitably lead to more mistakes. Los Angeles has also permitted just five passing touchdowns from quarterbacks in its last four games.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Lock ($5,000) shouldn’t be anywhere near your starting lineups during fantasy championship week.
