One of my favorite offseason exercises is to identify offenses that could take a step forward and provide significant fantasy opportunities for its players. It’s easy to target the high-powered, high-scoring offenses, and draft elite options. However, teams with young rosters and a stable of offensive skill position players are potential goldmines for fantasy.
The Denver Broncos are one of the most intriguing offenses for dynasty leagues. A second-year quarterback enters his first year as a full-time starter. The wide receiver and running back room contain top-end talent, and a young tight end looks primed to explode.
The Broncos selected Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Lock did not start until Week 13 after sitting behind Joe Flacco and Brandon Allen for over half of the season. In his limited action as the starter, he flashed while also showing typical rookie struggles.
To his credit, Lock did go 4-1 in his five starts. He showed his most reliable connection with his young, athletic tight end who will be explored in greater detail in a few minutes.
