This has been a forgettable season for the Denver Broncos and quarterback Drew Lock. The second-year player has been plagued by turnover trouble and inconsistent play, limiting his value as a fantasy QB option.

Lock, after being listed as questionable, will get the start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but that's no reason for fantasy managers to take a reasonable look at him.

Drew Lock Fantasy Outlook

Lock has rarely been able to string multiple good performances together. On the season, he's averaging just 18.7 completions for 213.9 yards per game and 1 touchdown. The QB has an unimpressive 55% completion percentage and seems unable to stop turning the ball over, averaging 1.4 interceptions per game.

It's discouraging that Lock has thrown more interceptions (10) than TDs (7) during his 7 starts this season. The QB managed to have two solid outings in Weeks 8 and 9, totaling 19.82 and 29.22 fantasy points (PPR), respectively, but he followed that up in Week 11 with 4 interceptions and a dismal 6.98 fantasy points.

Lock has shown occasional flashes of his dual-threat abilities, but any fantasy manager banking on him for consistent weekly production is only in for a letdown. With the QB coming off of a rib injury and facing a Dolphins team in Week 11 that's allowing the 15th-fewest fantasy points (PPR) to opposing quarterbacks this season (18.8), Lock should be firmly planted on your fantasy bench.
