Case Keenum, QB, Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders
DraftKings Price: $5,800
Keenum was a bit of a big game surprise last week as he threw for 329 yards with 3 TD’s and 3 INT’s. The turnovers are discouraging but, after a lackluster preseason, this was a great start for the Broncos who have been scorned by QB’s ever since Peyton Manning left town.
Both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders were thrilled to see Keenum as the veteran duo of WR’s combined for 16 receptions, 198 yards and 2 TD’s. Keenum looked to have an affinity for Sanders but both wideouts enjoyed solid performances.
This week, Keenum gets a plus matchup at home against the Khalil Mack-less Raiders who are coming off a rather sloppy Week 1 performance. The Raiders gave up 233 yards and 2 TD’s to Jared Goff in Week 1. Keenum should have a solid floor with potentially more upside in what could be another closely fought matchup.
