Player Outlook
The Broncos are riding with Nix as their quarterback of the future, but Fantasy managers might need some time before joining the bandwagon. A five-year starter at Auburn and Oregon, Nix evolved into an efficient thrower with a low interception rate and good short-range accuracy. If Broncos coach Sean Payton could make him a more calm, patient thrower and allow him to dial up some intermediate throws, then Nix could end up being effective enough for Fantasy usage. But until we see that happen, expectations for the 24-year-old rookie should be held in check. Don't expect Nix to get drafted in typical seasonal leagues unless it's a Superflex or two-QB format, in which case he'll be a mid-round pick. In rookie-only drafts Nix would be worth a pick in late Round 2 if it's one-QB, but late Round 1 if it's Superflex or two-QB.

  • Broncos' Bo Nix: Part of three-way job battle

    Coach Sean Payton has made it clear Nix, Jarrett Stidham and Zach Wilson are competing for the starting QB job, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports. Payton said Thursday that Nix is "farther along" than most rookies would be at the same juncture, citing Nix's intelligence and NCAA QB record of 61 starts as likely explanations for his ability to learn the Denver offense quickly. The rookie first-round pick opened Thursday's practice with the starters, but Payton downplayed the significance afterward, mentioning that Stidham got more first-team snaps Tuesday and Wilson took the majority Wednesday. Payton said all three are doing well so far and expressed confidence that the Broncos have a good QB room, though he also used the term "orphan dogs" to describe the trio of Nix, Stidham and Wilson.
