Bo Nix Fantasy Football Buzz: Denver Broncos QB Competition
1 week ago

Bo Nix’s arrival in Denver has sparked controversy as the Broncos assess their quarterback options for the upcoming season.

Bo Nix’s arrival in Denver has stirred up controversy as the Broncos weigh their quarterback choices for the upcoming season. Drafted 12th overall in 2023, Nix joins a competitive lineup with seasoned backups Jarrett Stidham and Zach Wilson. While Stidham has impressed in offseason practices, Nix’s extensive college career positions him as a strong contender for the starting role, potentially as early as Week 1.

 

 

Fantasy managers are closely monitoring Nix’s progress, intrigued by his potential to lead Denver’s offense. With a notable college pedigree and the chance to thrive in a team eager for quarterback stability, Nix presents a gamble-reward scenario for fantasy drafts. As the Broncos gear up for the season, the competition among Nix, Stidham, and Wilson will shape fantasy owners’ quarterback strategies, making Nix a key player to watch in fantasy football discussions this year

Denver Broncos Head Coach Sean Payton Gives Media an Broncos Update After Closing out the First Week of OTAs
1 month ago

Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton gives media an Broncos update after closing out the first week of OTAs.

After closing out the first week of OTAs, the Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton gave us a much needed update on their offensive situation. After drafting Bo Nix, 12th overall in this year’s NFL draft, Sean Payton had high praise for the rookie saying “he’s farther along than most would be”. Nix should be the front runner to earn the starting job in Denver with his competition being Jarrett Stidham and Zach Wilson. 

 

 

Payton also went on to update their tight end room stating that Greg Dulcich is “close” to returning, but didn’t expect the tight end to be back until training camp. Payton went on to give high praise to up and coming TE Lucas Krull by adding how sharp he was looking so far in the OTA’s. A situation worth paying attention to especially if Dulcich were to suffer a setback in training camp. 

Bo Nix Drafted 12th Overall by the Broncos in the First Round
2 months ago

Unable to duck criticism for his arm strength, the Oregon alumni will look to change the narrative in the NFL with the Broncos.

Bo Nix has been selected by the Denver Broncos with the 12th pick overall in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Bo Nix has often been cast away from the big 4 quarterbacks in Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye, and J.J. McCarthy for this year’s rookie class, however being selected by the Broncos makes for an intriguing landing spot.

 

Bo Nix advocates will say he can process plays at a really high level and deliver the intermediate ball for a high completion percentage as the former Oregon Duck posted a 72.1 and 77.4 completion percentage in 2022 and 2023 respectively. It remains to be seen how much Sean Payton will expect Bo Nix to challenge NFL defenses with the deep ball.

 

Surrounded by Courtland Sutton and Marvin Mims, look for Bo Nix to hover around the latter part of round 1 in your Dynasty rookie drafts, particularly from the 1.08 and on. Dynasty drafters will have to weigh their roster construction and team need when choosing to click the draft button or pivot elsewhere. Bo Nix is currently 6th in our quarterback rookie rankings.

Bo is Trying to Nix Any Age Concerns at the NFL Combine
4 months ago

Bo Nix is out to prove his performance at Oregon wasn’t a fluke.

Bo Nix is one of the quarterbacks throwing at the NFL Combine. While not running the 40 yard dash, Nix will avoid shade from ‘hand size Twitter’ crowd with his 10 1/8’’ hands. At 6’2’’ and 214 lbs, Nix just turned 24 years old in February. The overarching question will be, was Bo Nix a product of the system at Oregon or is there something to be had at the next level for the NFL? As an older rookie there will be questions as to why he didn’t do better sooner.

 

In an interview with ProFootballTalk, Bo Nix expressed that he can process information at a really high level as his main strength. Nix mentioned things being stale at Auburn leading him to wanting more at Oregon. Bo Nix got more as he was the 2023 Pac-12 offensive player of the year. With a 72.1 and 77.4 completion percentage in 2022 and 2023 respectively, Bo was able to revive his college career.

 

With arm strength a criticism Nix faces, he was quick to cite Patrick Mahomes and Matthew Stafford as players who can make something out of nothing when not stepping into their passes. Nix feels he is a better post snap player vs. pre-snap. Bo’s 4,508 passing yards, 45 passing TD to only 3 INT indicate this is a valid contention.

 

Bo Nix is not projecting into the 1st round. With NFL mock draft destinations in the 2nd round this opens the range of outcomes to not being drafted to be an immediate starter. The Panthers have the 33rd pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Real signal for Bo Nix would be a team having time overnight into Day 2 of the draft and trading up to get Bo Nix. A lack of a trade up or aggression with the early 2nd round picks would be an indicator that the NFL doesn’t think too highly of Bo Nix. Currently, Bo Nix is 5th in our Player Profiler rookie quarterback rankings.
