WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Bears signed Trevor Siemian.

Nick Foles remains on Chicago's roster, but he's expected to move on at some point. The veteran Siemian is expected to back up second-year quarterback Justin Fields in 2022.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Saints activated Trevor Siemian from the reserve/COVID-19 list

Siemian was activated along with Taysom Hill, as the Saints will get serious reinforcements at quarterback after rookie Ian Book was put in a very difficult spot having to start last Monday night. It's good to see Hill and Siemian able to rejoin their teammates.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Saints are expected to start Trevor Siemian in Week 9.

Siemian played well when stepping into the lineup for an injured Jameis Winston last week against the Bucs, and Taysom Hill has been out of action for a few weeks, so Siemian is getting the start versus the Falcons. We'd think Siemian has a shot to keep hold of the starting job, but look for Hill to get a good amount of time on offense on Sunday, too.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Saints are releasing Trevor Siemian, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

New Orleans plans to bring Siemian back later in the week, but the logistics of cutting down the roster to 53 players is causing them to release him for now. The veteran is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback on game days with Taysom Hill in the do-it-all role, and fourth-round pick Ian Book should be a healthy scratch to begin his career.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Saints are signing Trevor Siemian to the active roster.

With Drew Brees going on injured reserve, Siemian will give New Orleans more quarterback depth. This is interesting, as Taysom Hill is set to start at quarterback while Jameis Winston backs him up, but the Saints presumably want a third guy ready to go given the reckless manner Hill is likely to play with as an explosive runner.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Titans are releasing Trevor Siemian.

Especially during a season in which COVID-19 might come into play, it shouldn't be much of an issue for Siemian to find a new team given his starting experience.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Titans are signing Trevor Siemian.

This comes as the Titans cut rookie Cole McDonald, so head coach Mike Vrabel and company clearly wanted more experience behind Ryan Tannehill. Siemian has starting experience and would provide a steady hand on offense if he wins the backup job.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian has healed from his ankle injury.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says Siemian "received a clean bill of health this week from specialist Dr. David Porter" ahead of the start of free agency. Siemian's season was ended after a dirty hit by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, but thankfully the ugly injury has healed. Siemian has 25 career starts, and he'll likely draw considerable interest as a backup option on the open market.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (ankle) is out for the season.

This isn't surprising after the ugly ankle injury suffered last night on a late hit by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. With Sam Darnold battling mono and likely to miss at least a few more weeks, the Jets are currently down to 2018 sixth-round pick Luke Falk as their only quarterback on the roster. They'll obviously be bringing in another quarterback, potentially one to push Falk for the starting job. But Falk should be the starter for now, as he understands and is comfortable with the offense at least. Siemian should be at 100% for next season, and we wish him luck on his recovery.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian suffers apparent lower leg injury against the Browns.

Unfortunately, Siemian was just hit late by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and appears to have suffered a very serious injury in his ankle area. It looked ugly, and Siemian's night is almost certainly done after going 3/6 for three yards. With the Jets down 13-0, 2018 sixth-round pick Luke Falk, who was just promoted to the active roster today, will enter the game. This was the second time Garrett has been hit with a roughing the passer penalty tonight, and you can bet the Jets are not happy about it.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Jets are signing Trevor Siemian to a one-year deal.

With Josh McCown uncertain if he wants to continue his playing career, the Jets moved to ensure they have a backup they can count on behind Sam Darnold. Siemian has starting experience and can step in and play well if necessary, but he likely wouldn't be a QB1 option if he's forced into the lineup this season. The former Bronco and Viking is in a good spot with a year to learn under head coach Adam Gase, though.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

The Vikings are trading for Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian, according to Ian Rapoport.

Kirk Cousins appears set to sign with Minnesota as the team's new starter, but Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, and Case Keenum are all leaving in free agency. Siemian will give them a very solid backup that has had some good playing experience over the last couple seasons. Ideally, Cousins will sign and do fine with the Vikings, but Siemian is an insurance policy that can step in and play well if needed.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Broncos place Trevor Siemian (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Siemian was injured in Thursday night's win over the Colts, and now Denver will stick with Brock Osweiler for the rest of the year. The 25-year-old entered the season as the starting quarterback before being benched for Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, but he got the job back to start December when Lynch got injured. Siemian completed 59% of his passes for 2,285 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions in 11 appearances, so it was a disappointing step back from his 2016 season. The Broncos could completely re-arrange the quarterback room in 2018, and it would be very surprising if Siemian is the starter to open next season.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian has a shoulder sprain.

Some reports are saying it's a dislocated shoulder for Siemian, with others saying it's the same injury he suffered last season which forced him to have surgery during the offseason. Either way, Siemian's season is almost certainly over, and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve soon. There should be more information in the coming days, as Siemian is reportedly set to get an MRI tomorrow.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (left shoulder) has been ruled out against the Colts.

The injury is officially being called a left shoulder, but it looked like Siemian might've hurt his left wrist on the play. Nevertheless, Siemian is done for the day after going 5/9 for 67 yards and one interception—with the pick coming on a throw that he severely underthrew on a ball that should've been lofted toward the sideline for Demaryius Thomas. Hopefully we see Siemian again this year, but his season might be over with two games left to go after tonight.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian heads to the locker room against the Broncos.

Siemian just took a hard hit on a sack and appeared to have maybe jammed his hand in the turf. If Siemian doesn't come back before the next drive, Brock Osweiler will enter the game for the Broncos.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian, Broncos snap losing streak with 23-0 win over the Jets.

Siemian was 19/31 for 200 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. He also rushed three times for 13 yards. The touchdown came in the first quarter from 20 yards away to Demaryius Thomas in the end zone, as Siemian basically threw it up as he was getting hit, but DT came down with it. He didn't have to do much after that, but he didn't make any big mistakes, which was the most important thing. Siemian won't be a fantasy option against Indianapolis on Thursday night.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian tosses three interceptions as Denver gets blown out by the Dolphins.

Siemian was 19/41 for 200 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. He also rushed three times for 16 yards. The 35-9 loss drops the Broncos to 3-9, and it could lead to Vance Joseph being one-and-done or not even lasting the entire season as head coach. Brock Oswieler is probably the best option at quarterback for Denver, but no matter who starts, they obviously won't be a option for owners in the fantasy playoffs.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian nearly leads Broncos comeback in Week 12.

Paxton Lynch drew the start for Denver against the Raiders, but he left with an ankle injury, giving Siemian a chance to play again after his benching earlier in the season. Siemian was 11/21 for 149 yards and two touchdowns along with two carries for nine yards in his limited action, leading the Broncos to 14 fourth-quarter points in their 21-14 loss. The scores were on a 25-yard pass up the right sideline to Cody Latimer and a 22-yard down the field over the middle to Bennie Fowler. Siemian might be comfortable with new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, and the Broncos might be wise to give him another opportunity as the starter. If the starter, he wouldn't be a bad option in Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian is inactive for the Broncos.

Second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch is now healthy enough to backup Brock Osweiler, so Siemian is inactive. It's possible Siemian remains inactive for the rest of the season, but he's still shown flashes and might be another opportunity at some point.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Broncos are "evaluating" the quarterback spot.

After an excellent start to the season, Trevor Siemian has struggled as of late, so Denver has no choice but to at least think of making a quarterback change. Team president John Elway said a decision will be made in the next few days, and it'd likely have to come by before Thursday's practice at the latest—they have a game to play on Sunday against the 7-1 Eagles. For fantasy purposes, a switch to Brock Osweiler would probably help Demaryius Thomas, who might be heavily targeted by Osweiler. If it's Paxton Lynch, it might hurt the value of Denver's receivers, as Lynch hasn't had a lot of playing experience yet. Thomas averaged 5.3 receptions, 69.7 yards, and 0.7 touchdowns per game in Osweiler's seven starts in 2015, so he'll probably be a better bet to score touchdowns with a quarterback change.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian struggles in Broncos' loss.

The offensive line again did Siemian no favors, but he really did not play well in this one. He was 19/36 for 198 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while adding two carries for 20 yards in the loss to Kansas City. Two of interceptions were particularly bad, with one of them coming on a pass down the sideline to a tight end covered by Marcus Peters, and the other bad one coming late in the game on a throw across the field and across his body. The Broncos have made it clear they are sticking with Siemian at quarterback—and the offensive line has not helped—but they might decide to make a switch and try to give the offense a spark soon. Brock Osweiler went 5-2 with this team a couple years ago, so don't be surprised if he gets the nod soon. On the other hand, Siemian is still a young quarterback going through some things and should improve with experience.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian, Broncos shutout for the first time since 1992.

Siemian was 25/35 for 207 yards and one interception. He also rushed twice for 14 yards and fumbled twice (lost one). Denver simply couldn't block Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, as the duo combined for three sacks and were close on plenty of other occasions, so Siemian doesn't deserve the blame that he will probably receive. The Broncos need to turn it around quick, though, as they face the Chiefs in Kansas City and the Eagles in Philadelphia before getting the Patriots back at home over the next three weeks. Siemian probably isn't a good streaming option against the Chiefs next Monday night.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (shoulder) is good to go for Sunday against the Chargers.

Siemian finished the game last night against the Giants, so he was expected to be ready to go for Week 7. He might be at less than 100% though, and he’s not a recommended fantasy option especially while considering he's down Emmanuel Sanders (ankle).

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian, Broncos upset by the Giants on Sunday Night Football.

Siemian was 29/50 for 376 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a surprising 23-10 defeat. The third-year quarterback left the game briefly at the end of the first half due to a left shoulder injury, but he returned and played the rest of the game. Throwing for nearly 400 yards looks good, but it was an inconsistent performance from Siemian. One interception was a poor decision that was returned for a score, but the other came on a would-be accurate throw that Demaryius Thomas hesitated at the top of the route on. His status is worth monitoring this week, but we'd expect Siemian to be out there against the Chargers next Sunday. He's not a recommended fantasy option.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (shoulder) returns to start the second half.

Siemian is fine after heading to the locker room early to get his non-throwing shoulder checked out. He'll be back in there over Brock Osweiler.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian leaves game with apparent shoulder injury.

Siemian is questionable to return against the Giants with his team down by 14 with under two minutes to go in the first half. He was struggling before he left, going 11/23 for 148 yards and two interceptions and a nine-yard carry. Siemian injured the left non-throwing shoulder on a dive tackle attempt on a pick-six by Janoris Jenkins. Old starter Brock Osweiler is now under center for the Broncos.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian was 16/26 for 179 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Raiders.

Siemian didn't have the big game many predicted, as a 22-yard score in the first quarter was the only touchdown of the game for Denver. The third-year quarterback has cooled off since his hot start, and he's now on pace for 3,552 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions. The Broncos have a bye next week before taking on the Giants in Week 6. Siemian won't be a fantasy option in that one.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian cools off as he tosses two picks in loss.

Siemian was 24/40 for 259 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions in a 26-16 loss to the Bills. He also rushed three times for 12 yards. Denver probably threw the ball more than they should have with the game close throughout, as C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles combined for just 17 carries. The Broncos should find more balance heading into their matchup with the Raiders next Sunday, and Siemian still remains in the streaming conversation after Oakland was just torched by Kirk Cousins on SNF.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian throws for four touchdowns in easy win over the Cowboys.

Siemain was 22/32 for 231 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception as the Broncos handled Dallas by a score of 42-17. He also rushed five times for 14 yards. Siemian looked great for the second-straight week and now has two really strong wins under his belt after earning the starting job in the preseason. The former seventh-round pick looks like a solid streaming option with good weapons and coaching. He gets the Bills next Sunday.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian plays well in Broncos' Week 1 win.

Siemian was 17/28 for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while adding six carries for 19 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Siemian kept the chains moving for the Broncos and made crisp, accurate throws throughout the night. Both his touchdowns came in the red zone to Bennie Fowler—another positive sign that he performed well in the scoring zone. The interception came on a screen pass where the ball was tipped and kicked up in the air before getting intercepted. Siemian plays the Cowboys in Week 2, and he could start looking like a good fantasy option very soon if he keeps progressing as he gets more playing time.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian was 13/22 for 127 yards and one interception in the Broncos' third preseason game.

He also rushed twice for 18 yards. Named the starter earlier in the week, Siemian's interception was an overthrow to Demaryius Thomas over the middle, but it's not a concern; Siemian is the best option for all fantasy options for Denver, and he could provide streaming appeal in the right matchup.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian will be named the starting quarterback for the Broncos, according to former wide receiver Brandon Stokley.

An official announcement was expected to come at some point early this week after the team's second preseason game, as it was clear Siemian was the better option, and Stokley's team connections got him the scoop. This should be considered good news for the entire Denver offense after Siemian threw for almost 3,500 yards and had an 18:10 touchdown-interception ratio in his first year as the starter. The 25-year-old has the poise and accuracy that 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch just doesn't have right now. Siemian could be a low-end streaming option with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders to throw to, but we should wait and see how he plays early in the season. He shouldn't be drafted in 10- or 12-team leagues.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Siemian closes door on starting job in win over 49ers?

Coming on in relief of an ineffective Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian was 8/11 for 93 yards and one touchdown. The favorite for the starting job all along, Siemian should be named the winner of the competition soon so Denver can get ready for the regular season knowing who the guy is.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian was 6/7 for 51 yards in the Broncos' first preseason game.

He threw the ball accurately, including one particularly impressive throw. Siemian appears to be in the clear lead for the starting job as the incumbent starter and someone that you know what you're getting with. However, Paxton Lynch is expected to start the second preseason game against the 49ers next Saturday.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian will start the Broncos' first preseason game on Thursday night.

Head coach Vance Joseph just made the announcement, adding that Paxton Lynch will start the second game as they rotate like they have been throughout camp. Siemian is the incumbent starter and is seen as having a steady hand that can lead the offense, but Lynch is seen as having more upside. The quarterback battle isn't over yet, but this might indicate Siemian is currently in the lead for the starting job. This situation is one to watch on Thursday night, as Siemian will look to distance himself from Lynch.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian will run with the first team offense on the first day of training camp.

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph says Siemian will run with the first team when the team opens camp, but they will rotate each day. So, Paxton Lynch will get the first-team reps on Friday for day two of Broncos camp, and they'll keep switching until a starter is named. Joseph also said he'll talk to executive  John Elway, OC Mike McCoy, and QB coach Bill Musgrave, but it's ultimately his decision on who the starter will be. It's 50/50 as to who will be under center for the Broncos to start the season.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

There is "no timetable" for selecting the Broncos starting quarterback.

Head coach Vance Joseph and the team aren't going to rush into a decision. He said when he sees a "clear separation" he'll name that player the starter. Trevor Siemian showed major flashes of ability last season, but Paxton Lynch is a very talented player that John Elway selected in the first round last year. It's 50/50 who will win the job at this point.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian is "full go" for the Broncos offseason program.

Siemian had shoulder surgery, but he's 100% for his competition with Paxton Lynch for the starting quarterback job. The Broncos like what they see from Siemian, and he has a real shot to beat out the first rounder for the starting job. It's probably close to a 50/50 bet for who wins the job at this point.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

John Elway said he expects both his quarterbacks to make a big jump this season.

The Broncos seem confident in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and they'll battle for the starting job in training camp. It really doesn't seem like Tony Romo will be headed to Denver, although Elway could just have a huge poker face. Expect Siemian or Lynch to be under center Week 1 in September. Neither will be inspiring fantasy options.

Trevor Siemian was 17/27 for 206 yards, two touchdowns, and one interceptions in the Broncos' win over the Raiders.

There was talk Paxton Lynch would get a half or at least some playing time in the season finale, but he didn't see the field. Siemian played okay, which has been the case for most of the year, but John Elway will possibly look for an upgrade at quarterback this offseason so he doesn't waste the prime of his defense. In his first season as the starter, Siemian completed 59.5% of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian, Broncos eliminated from playoffs with Christmas Night loss.

Siemian was just 17/43 for 183 yards and one interception as the Broncos lost 33-10 to end their chase for a repeat. After having his best game of the season in the first meeting with Kansas City, Siemian had perhaps his worst game of the season on Christmas. The Chiefs held Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders to a combined 46 yards, and Denver's leading receiver was Devontae Booker with 44 yards on a handful of screen passes. Siemian could be making his last start next Sunday against the Raiders, as John Elway will probably look for an upgrade at quarterback this offseason.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Patriots shut down Broncos offense; Broncos drop to 8-6.

Trevor Siemian was 25/40 for 282 yards and one interception against the Pats. Siemian was also sacked four times in the game. The Broncos could not get their running game going against the Patriots, and Siemian couldn't carry the Broncos offense. Siemian torched his next opponent—the Chiefs—in their last matchup, so he has some good upside as a QB2.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (foot) was 35/51 for 334 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Titans.

Siemian took advantage of a bad Tennessee secondary on Sunday, as he successfully targeted Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders a combined 30 times, but it wasn't enough to get the win, as a couple fumbles ended up costing them. Now 8-5 and with the Patriots, Chiefs, and Raiders remaining on the schedule, the Broncos could struggle to make the playoffs. Siemian isn't a fantasy option next week against the Pats.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (foot) is active and starting for the Broncos.

After missing one game, the Broncos get their starting quarterback back. He's not a good option playing the Titans coming off the bye week.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (foot) gets in limited practice for second straight day.

He split the first team quarterback reps with Paxton Lynch, so he's probably going to be listed as questionable when the injury report comes out on Friday. We'll update you on his status tomorrow.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday against Jacksonville.

Rookie Paxton Lynch will get his second start of the season. Lynch is definitely a QB2 option if you need some help in two-quarterback leagues. It's bad luck for Siemian, as he had one of his best performances in the Broncos' OT loss to the Chiefs last Sunday night. He's questionable at best for Week 14 with the left foot sprain.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian played great in a losing effort on SNF against the Chiefs.

Siemian was 20/34 for 368 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 10.8 yards per attempt. He also had a good game on the ground, with five carries for 23 yards. The deep ball was working big time for Siemian and he helped Denver build a lead after falling behind 9-0. Siemian has big game potential, but is hard to trust in your fantasy lineup.

Trevor Siemian | Bears QB

Trevor Siemian went 25/40 for 258 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's 24-23 win over the Saints in New Orleans.

The 7th round pick from 2015 has Denver at 7-3, right behind the 7-2 Chiefs and Raiders in the AFC West. Siemian threw a couple bad picks, but played well enough to beat Drew Brees and the Saints thanks to an extra-point return for a score to go up 25-23 instead of being down 24-23. Siemian heads into the bye week with a 12:7 touchdown-interception ratio. He can obviously stay on the waiver wire.
