Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Siemian started ten games for the Broncos and finished the season with a 5-5 record as the team’s starting quarterback. He was under center for all five of Denver’s victories this season and passed for 2,285 yards and 12 touchdowns while tossing 14 interceptions on the year. Siemian struggled to connect with his receivers downfield which caused him to pass for just 6.5 yards per attempt. He didn’t receive much help from the offensive line considering he was sacked 33 times this season.
From a pure talent perspective, Siemian seems like he’s developing into a solid backup quarterback. He will never be a long-term dynasty asset. He may start a few games here and there, but he’s never going to be a consistent starter for an NFL franchise.
Denver is going to use a large portion of their time in the off-season trying to get a new quarterback either through the draft or free agency. There’s going to be a lot of competition for the starting quarterback job next year, and more than likely, this team will have a new signal-caller under center come week one.
