2020 RTSports Outlook

Driskel was the top backup for the Lions last year and got some starts because of an injury to Matthew Stafford. He started three games before suffering a hamstring injury, which ended his season. Driskel played alright in a starting role. He had five total touchdowns to four interceptions. He made a lot of plays with his legs, rushing for 151 yards on 22 carries. Driskel has started games each of the last two seasons, but seems best suited for backup duty rather than as a full-time starter. Driskel has a decent arm, good accuracy and is a smart quarterback. He doesn't make a ton of plays down the field, though, and needs to take more chances to be a leg NFL starter. He uses his legs well to extend the play and make plays on the ground.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Driskel had more than 20 total fantasy points two of three games, so he has some promise if given another chance to start. His ability to make plays with his legs helps his fantasy value.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel's contract became official Friday, March 27, after being processed by the NFL.

From TheHuddle

Mar 17 11:00pm ET

The Denver Broncos reached an undisclosed agreement with quarterback Jeff Driskel on Tuesday, according to a source. Driskel wound up playing three games for the Lions last year when Matthew Stafford (back) was lost for the season. The soon-to-be 27-year-old signal-caller was 62-for-105 (59 percent) for 685 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions for a weak QB rating of 75.3. The former sixth-round pick of the 49ers can extend plays with his legs, but he'll compete for a backup job in Denver behind Drew Lock. He could be competing against Brandon Allen if the Broncos choose to re-sign him.
