Redskins' Case Keenum: Throws two TD passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 26 of 37 pass attempts for 221 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Cowboys.

In a somewhat daunting matchup, Keenum completed an impressive 70 percent of his passes, although he averaged an underwhelming 6.0 yards per attempt. He completed touchdown passes to Paul Richardson and Terry McLaurin, giving him five scored compared to zero interceptions through his first two games as a Redskin. Keenum has performed admirably despite facing two strong defenses and will look to do more of the same next Monday against the Bears.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Throws three TD passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 30 of 45 pass attempts for 380 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions during Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.

Keenum was outstanding against a strong Eagles defense and especially so early on, with touchdown passes of 48 and 69 yards in the first half. He didn't maintain that same level in the second half but still managed to finish with one of the finest stat lines of his NFL career. Keenum was expected to start the season as the No. 1 option before giving way to Dwayne Haskins, but more performances like this could allow the team to bring the rookie along slowly. He'll face another tough matchup next Sunday at home against the Cowboys.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Named starting quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum will begin the season as Washington's starting quarteraback, according to head coach Jay Gruden, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Rookie Dwayne Haskins will almost certainly push Keenum for the starting role at some point this season, but Keenum is set to start Week 1 against Philadelphia.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Turns in most efficient effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed nine of 14 pass attempts for 101 yards in the team's third preseason contest against Atlanta.

Keenum led the team for their first five offensive possessions, which resulted in six points. He wasn't helped by his offensive line, as he was pressured almost immediately on a few plays, causing inaccurate throws. Still, this was Keenum's most promising appearance of the preseason, notably the first time he's completed more than half of his pass attempts. Rookie Dwayne Haskins put together a few impressive throws and will almost certainly push Keenum for the starting role at some point this season, though Keenum should still be considered the favorite to lead the team in Week 1 against Philadelphia.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Starter could be named next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum's teammate, Colt McCoy (leg), doesn't have a concrete timetable for a return to action, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Meanwhile, McNally relays that coach Jay Gruden said he hopes to pick his Week 1 starting QB after this Thursday's preseason game versus Atlanta. With McCoy seemingly out of the picture for now, Keenum remains the front-runner for the assignment, though rookie Dwayne Haskins still has a bit of time to make a late run for the nod.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Struggles in second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed three of seven passes for 52 yards in the team's second game of the preseason against the Bengals on Thursday.

Keenum played three offensive series, leading the first-team offense. He was largely ineffective, though did show some rapport with veteran tight end Vernon Davis, connecting with him on 17 and 26-yard passes. While Keenum is expected to be the starter in Week 1 against the Eagles, he hasn't looked very strong early on with his new team, completing seven of 16 pass attempts for 112 yards and a touchdown through two preseason games. Both rookie Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy (foot/leg) could push Keenum to be the leader of the offense if he doesn't pick up his performance quickly.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Getting another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum will start Thursday's preseason contest against the Bengals, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

With Colt McCoy again ruled out for exhibition action due to lingering effects from his broken right fibula, Keenum is closing in on securing the starting quarterback gig for Week 1, according to Rick Snider of The Washington Post. Keenum didn't exactly light it up in the first exhibition last week, completing four of nine passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. Nonetheless, Keenum's veteran status appears to be more favorable in coach Jay Gruden's mind than trotting out 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins to begin the season.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Has edge for Week 1 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum has emerged as the favorite to start for the Redskins in Week 1 against the Eagles, Rick Snider of The Washington Post reports.

With Colt McCoy (foot/leg) struggling in practice and now in danger of missing a second straight preseason game, Keenum and Dwayne Haskins are getting some extra opportunities. Washington still has McCoy listed in the top spot on the depth chart, but his absence left Keenum as the clear choice to start in last week's preseason opener against Cleveland. The 31-year-old completed four of nine passes for 60 yards and a touchdown, while Haskins went 8-for-14 for 117 yards but also tossed a pair of interceptions. Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington agrees that Keenum has taken a lead in the three-way battle to start Week 1.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Tosses touchdown to open preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed four of nine passes for 60 yard and a touchdown and added a 10-yard run during Thursday's 30-10 loss to Cleveland.

All eyes were on rookie Dwayne Haskins on Thursday, but Keenum provided Washington with one of its few highlights, launching a 46-yard bomb to a wide-open Robert Davis for the team's only touchdown. After battling it out with Colt McCoy this offseason, Keenum is penciled in at No. 2. That's no man's land on a team that figures to start a veteran early, but eventually put Haskins on display at some point this season.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Getting first reps Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum will start Thursday's preseason game in Cleveland, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

With Colt McCoy (foot) sidelined, Keenum, rookie Dwayne Haskins and Josh Woodrum will be the quarterbacks at coach Jay Gruden's disposal. Keenum is listed as the No. 2 QB on the current depth chart, but performance over the next month ultimately will determine the breakdown for the regular season.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Listed as backup QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum is listed as the backup quarterback on the Redskins' first unofficial depth chart, Ryan Fowler and Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site report.

By all indications, Keenum seems to be taking a majority of the reps with the first-team offense during training camp, but Colt McCoy's experience in coach Jay Gruden's system has resulted in his placement at No. 1. Meanwhile, 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins is the third-stringer. The Redskins have four preseason games to parse out who among the three is deserving of the Week 1 start, but all of them are getting a shot to prove their worth to the coaching staff and management.

Redskins' Case Keenum: Takes first snap at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum took the first snap Monday during team drills, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Keenum was followed by first-round pick Dwayne Haskins, while Colt McCoy (leg) remains sidelined but is expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp. JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington observed a noticeable difference between Keenum and Haskins during Monday's practice, with the rookie holding a large edge in terms of both size and arm strength, while the veteran has a quicker release and better mobility. Both quarterbacks are learning new play-calling terminology from coach Jay Gruden, who has been clear about his intention to stage a three-way QB competition. Regardless, Finlay believes Haskins' ascension to the starting job "is a matter of when, not if."

Redskins' Case Keenum: Headed for three-way battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jay Gruden said No. 15 overall draft pick Dwayne Haskins will compete with Keenum and Colt McCoy (leg) for the starting quarterback job, ESPN.com's John Keim reports. "Well, if you are a 15th pick of the draft, I think you have to give him the opportunity, without a doubt," Gruden said. "We feel good about the guys we have in the building for sure, but when you take a guy in the first round, you have to give him a chance to compete."

Keenum would've been the favorite in a battle against McCoy, who's currently recovering from a third surgery after some complications with the fractured fibula he suffered Dec. 3. Things become far more interesting with Haskins in the mix, as the rookie has a large advantage over Keenum when it comes to size (6-foot-3, 231 pounds) and arm strength. Washington doesn't have much invested in Keenum and McCoy; both are entering contract seasons with cap hits below $4 million. Alex Smith (leg) isn't expected to play in 2019 and ultimately may be forced to retire.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Deal to Washington finalized
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have agreed to deal Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Redskins for a 2020 sixth-round pick, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The trade will be official Wednesday, per Klis.

After agreeing to terms of a trade for Joe Flacco last month, the Broncos were in a holding pattern with Keenum, a free-agent splash last offseason. Additional terms of the deal include the Broncos giving Keenum a $500,000 restructure bonus and covering $3.5 million of his $7 million salary for the 2019 season. The Redskins are expected to allow Keenum and Colt McCoy to battle for the starting role in the absence of Alex Smith, who may not play again due to a severe leg injury suffered last November.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Trade brewing?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum is a candidate to be traded from Denver to Washington, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

With Joe Flacco in line to be acquired by the Broncos, Keenum obviously is expendable, and Washington is looking for QB help due to Alex Smith's serious leg injury. If Keenum does end up in Washington, he'd have to to compete with Colt McCoy for the team's starting job.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Will be cut or traded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum likely will be traded or released after the Broncos agreed to acquire fellow quarterback Joe Flacco, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The Broncos would love to find a trade partner even if the compensation is menial, as they'll have to pay the guaranteed portion ($7 million) of Keenum's $18 million base salary if they end up cutting him. He'd need to accept a pay cut -- an unlikely proposition -- to have any chance at staying in Denver. Keenum collected $18 million from the Broncos in 2018, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt with an 18:15 TD:INT as a 16-game starter in an injury-laden offense. He looked like a high-end backup more so than a solid starter, but his breakout 2017 campaign in Minnesota suggests he's good enough to win games when he's surrounded by a talented roster and competent coaching staff.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Likely done as starter in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos' impending trade for Joe Flacco likely marks the end of Keenum's tenure as the starting quarterback in Denver, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Signed to a two-year, $36 million contract last offseason, Keenum failed to replicate his Minnesota magic from 2017, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt with an 18:15 TD:INT as a 16-game starter for the Broncos. The team can free up $11 million in cap space if Keenum is removed from the roster, while any team that trades for him would inherit an $18 million base salary that includes $7 million guaranteed, per OverTheCap.com. The significant commitment limits his trade value, but it shouldn't preclude some level of interest. There's also some chance -- however small -- the Broncos could retain Keenum and allow him to compete with Flacco for the starting job.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Viewed as temporary solution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos general manager John Elway recently described Keenum as "probably a short-term fix," Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports. "Obviously, we've got to - Case is probably a short-term fix - find the long-term guy for us," Elway said. "When we do find that guy, we've got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there."

Elway seems to have abandoned any hope of Keenum being the franchise quarterback, but that doesn't mean the 30-year-old won't return for the second season of his two-year, $36 million contract. Keenum was at least competent in 2018, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt with 18 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. It was a big step back from his breakout 2017 campaign in Minnesota, though he did keep the Broncos in the playoff hunt until they closed out their campaign with four consecutive losses. Picking at No. 10 overall in a draft that appears weak at quarterback, the Broncos may have a tough time landing a clear upgrade on Keenum in the offseason, but they do at least have a decent cap situation to add talent at other positions. New head coach Vic Fangio named former 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello as his offensive coordinator for a unit that will largely rely on second-year players Phillip Lindsay, Royce Freeman, Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Mediocre in first year in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum finished the 2018 campaign with 365 completions on 586 attempts (62.3 percent) for 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He added 93 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries and lost one fumble.

After earning a two-year, $36 million deal from Denver following a strong showing with Minnesota in 2017, Keenum failed to produce as efficiently with the Broncos as he had a year prior. Some peculiar play calling and injuries to key players certainly did help Keenum, particularly over the final quarter of the season. With top wideout Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) headed for free agency this offseason, Keenum may be throwing to a slew of young targets again to begin 2019, barring the team bringing in any major difference makers in the passing game. With Keenum heading into a contract year, there's also a chance that Denver invests an early draft selection into a young signal-caller who could potentially unseat the veteran at some point next season.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Totals 300 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 31 of 48 passing attempts for 292 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in Sunday's 23-9 loss to the Chargers. He also rushed three times for eight yards and lost a fumble.

Keenum's second-quarter "fumble" was actually a backward pass that he threw after he had stepped up to scramble but changed his mind and tossed to Royce Freeman who could not handle the low throw. The Chargers would scoop up the loose ball and return it for the game's first score. After that, the Broncos could muster only a field goal until the final period, when the 30-year-old would find Andy Janovich for a wide-open 20-yard touchdown. The Houston product finishes his first season in Denver having completed 365 of 586 passing attempts for 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
