Keenum completed 31 of 48 attempts for 257 yards, committing two interceptions but adding a one-yard rushing touchdown during Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland.
Keenum has been brutal down the stretch, now carrying a streak of eight consecutive starts with fewer than 16 fantasy points in standard scoring (worst active streak among NFL quarterbacks, 12.6 PPG over that span). The veteran signal caller did exceed 205 passing yards for the first time since Week 9, but two interceptions substantially diminished an already less than stellar output, while he failed to score more than one touchdown for the third straight outing (only one three-touchdown performance all season, and that came in Week 1). Keenum's Week 16 matchup makes him a contender for starting consideration in two-quarterback leagues, facing an Oakland defense that's surrendered an NFL-high 31 passing touchdowns on the year.
Keenum averaged just 4.4 yards per attempt and was under 200 passing yards for the third straight game. And, while he extended his interception-less streak to five contests, he also failed to complete 60 percent of his passes for the fourth consecutive game. Keenum was playing his first game without Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles), but the Denver passing attack as a whole has been a low-upside proposition for several weeks. Keenum will look to up his numbers versus the Browns in a Week 15 Saturday night matchup.
Keenum completed 12 of 21 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals. He added nine yards on two carries.
With the wind howling in Cincinnati, the Broncos leaned on the run game. That's been Denver's recipe for success during its three-game winning streak. Keenum is completing just 56.7 percent of his passes -- doubtlessly aided by some drops -- and averaging 185 yards per game during the winning streak as the Broncos have won with defense, a gashing run game, and a careful and efficient Keenum. Sunday's game was against a bottom-10 Bengals defense based on opponent passer rating and next Sunday's opponent, the 49ers, rank slightly worse. Still, it'd be a surprise if the Broncos open it up and sling the ball around when the quick passing game and run game is what has worked for them during their winning streak.
Keenum completed 15 of 28 attempts for 197 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-17 win against Pittsburgh.
The wily veteran picked apart a typically stellar Steelers pass defense, piecing together multiple passing touchdowns and zero interceptions for the first time since Dec. 17 of last season. Keenum hasn't been particularly effective in pushing the ball downfield this year (7.2 yards per attempt), but at least he's cleaned up his act in the turnovers department of late, with zero interceptions or fumbles lost over his past three outings, after committing 11 total turnovers through the first eight weeks of the regular season. There's no denying that he's had ice in his veins in his first year as a Bronco, with four game-winning fourth quarter drives already this season, and a number of gutsy performances against clear Super Bowl contenders (three losses to the Chiefs and Rams coming by 14 total points). Week 13 is a dreamy matchup for fantasy purposes, going up against a Bengals defense that ranks bottom five in completions, passing yards and touchdowns allowed to opposing quarterbacks.
Keenum completed 19 of 32 pass attempts for 205 yards during Sunday's 23-22 win over the Chargers.
Keenum averaged just 6.4 yards per attempt while posting his third-lowest yardage total of the season. He did go without turning the ball over for the second straight game, allowing the rushing attack and the defense to grind out a hard-fought away win. Keenum has come up with some big performances this season, but they have been few and far between for the most part. The Steelers could force him to throw early and often next week and he'll look to bounce back with a more productive showing.
