The Redskins are planning to start Case Keenum in Week 6, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
This isn't a surprise for a team that says they expected to be much better than their 0-5 start to this season under Jay Gruden, and signing the veteran Keenum was a big part of the front office's plan to compete in 2019. If there was a time to use Keenum in fantasy lineups this season, Sunday against the Dolphins would probably be the spot. But ultimately, you should be able to find a safer option for your quarterback in standard-sized leagues. There's already been talk from interim head coach Bill Callahan that rookie Dwayne Haskins could get some playing time in Week 6.
Case Keenum is inactive for the Redskins.
After starting the first four games of the season for Washington, Keenum is now inactive with Colt McCoy now starting. Rookie Dwayne Haskins will back up McCoy today against the Patriots.
The Redskins have benched Case Keenum.
With Washington's offense failing to do much against the Giants, Jay Gruden is deciding to play his first-round rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins in an attempt to jump-start the offense. Before leaving today's game, KEenum was 6/11 for 37 yards and an interception.
Case Keenum (foot) was officially a full participant in practice today.
Keenum is dealing with a minor foot ailment that forced him to miss yesterday's practice, but he's ready to go for Week 4 against the Giants. While this matchup could turn into a shootout, the Redskins starter is not a highly recommended QB1 this week.
The Redskins officially announce Case Keenum as their starting quarterback.
This announcement shouldn't come as a surprise with Colt McCoy (leg) still not 100% and rookie Dwayne Haskins needing some polishing, but Keenum will line up under center in Week 1 when the Redskins take on the Eagles. While Washington is expected to be a run-first team led by Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice, Keenum has shown he can move the offense as a playmaker, which will be key if they are going to compete in the NFC East.
The Broncos have agreed to trade Case Keenum to the Redskins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
This is now set to happen when the new league year officially begins next Wednesday at 4:00 PM ET. Washington is getting Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick and Denver is getting a 2020 sixth-round pick, so this is a low-cost trade for the Redskins. Meanwhile, the Broncos are giving Keenum an opportunity to battle for a starting job, which wasn't going to happen in Denver with Joe Flacco now with the team. The starting quarterback for the Redskins in 2019 looks like it'll come down to a competition between Keenum and Colt McCoy.
The Redskins and Broncos are working out a trade for Case Keenum, according to Ian Rapoport.
Despite stating they are confident in Colt McCoy with Alex Smith (leg) unlikely to play in 2019, Washington was thought to be targeting a quarterback via free agency, trade, or the draft, so it sounds like they may have found their guy in Keenum. Things didn't go as planned in Denver, but Keenum is a very capable quarterback that can keep the Redskins competitive if this gets done and he beats out McCoy for the starting job. People were probably too quick to forget that Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game just two seasons ago. Any potential deal will not be official until the new league year begins next week.
Case Keenum throws one touchdown in Week 17.
Keenum was 31/48 for 292 yards, one touchdown, and one interception along with three carries for eight yards and one fumble lost versus the Chargers. The score was to fullback Andy Janovich for 20 yards. Keenum's first season in Denver ends with 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions, along with 26 carries for 93 yards and two touchdowns. John Elway signed Keenum with the expectation that the Broncos would compete for the postseason this year, so the team's quarterback situation for 2019 is up in the air. Keenum does remain under contract, though, and he's probably the favorite to start Week 1 next season.
Case Keenum, Broncos fall to 6-9 with Christmas Eve loss to the Raiders.
Keenum was 23/37 for 202 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, also adding three carries for 19 yards. The touchdowns came to DaeSean Hamilton (seven yards) and Courtland Sutton (19 yards) on back-to-back possessions, but Keenum followed it up with two picks in a row to end the comeback attempt in a 27-14 defeat. The 30-year-old will carry a 17:14 touchdown-interception ratio into the season finale against the Chargers. He's not a strong QB2 option.
Case Keenum throws two interceptions in Saturday night loss.
Keenum was 31/48 for 257 yards and two interceptions along with two carries for one yard and a rushing touchdown. The first interception was on a deep shot to the end zone to Courtland Sutton that Jabrill Peppers came over and made a nice play on, and the second interception was on a deep crossing route where he didn't see the cornerback drop back into coverage to pick it off. The rushing score was a one-yarder where he dove into the end zone after rolling to his right. Overall, it wasn't a bad game from Keenum, and ideally he wouldn't have had to throw the ball 48 times (but Cleveland stuffed Denver's running game). Keenum is not a highly-recommended fantasy option on Christmas Eve against the Raiders.
Case Keenum throws one touchdown in Broncos' loss.
Keenum was 24/42 for 186 yards and one touchdown along with four carries for 24 yards in the Week 14 loss to the Niners. The score was to DaeSean Hamilton in the flat for one yard to bring the team within one possession late in the fourth quarter, but the comeback attempt fell short. The offense didn't play great to start the game, but the defense didn't help by giving up 20 first-half points. Ideally, Keenum won't have to throw 42 passes in a game moving forward, but he's not a recommended fantasy option during the fantasy playoffs.
Case Keenum throws one touchdown Broncos' Week 13 win.
Keenum was 12/21 for 151 yards and one touchdown along with two carries for nine yards versus the Bengals. The score was a 30-yarder to Courtland Sutton on a nice deep ball where he gave the rookie receiver a chance to make a play. Keenum is playing well and complimenting a strong defense, but he's not a recommended fantasy option right now.
Case Keenum plays well in Broncos' win.
Keenum was 15/28 for 197 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 victory over the Steelers. The touchdowns were to Matt LaCosse and Emmanuel Sanders in the red zone, with the Sanders score coming on a nice throw on the run just plays after he hit Sanders on a perfect 38-yard deep ball down the right sideline. The Broncos are now at 5-6 and in the thick of the AFC playoff race, and Keenum's play has been key. Keenum isn't a highly-recommended fantasy option, though; but next week against the struggling Bengals would probably be the week to use him.
Case Keenum, Broncos pickup huge win against the Chargers, 23-22.
Keenum was 19/32 for 205 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions, but orchestrated the game-winning, 86-yard drive that ended with a 34-yard field goal by Brandon McManus to boost Denver to 4-6. While the passing attack struggled for most of the day, Keenum made the plays when it mattered with a 38-yard throw to Emmanuel Sanders and a 30-yard throw to Courtland Sutton on the game's final drive. The Broncos will almost certainly need to throw it more to keep up with the visiting Steelers next Sunday, but Keenum is likely nothing more than a low-end QB2 for Week 12.
Case Keenum, Broncos lose to the Texans, 19-17, on last-second missed field goal.
Keenum was 26/42 for 290 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. It was a crushing defeat, as Denver got in range for Brandon McManus to win the game, but Vance Joseph inexplicable took his foot off the gas with 30 seconds remaining and decided to settle for a 51-yard attempt, which missed wide right. Keenum won't be a high-end streaming option when Denver returns from their Week 10 bye to face the Chargers, but he could be worth a look in a game they will likely need to score in.
Case Keenum throws two touchdowns in Broncos' loss.
Keenum was 23/34 for 262 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, and one fumble lost. He also added one cary for nine yards. The Chiefs did a good job of pressuring Keenum throughout the game, and they sacked him five times for -40 yards. The veteran quarterback's touchdowns were to Jeff Heuerman for four yards and a wide-open Tim Patrick for 24 yards. Keenum has some upside next week against a banged-up Texans secondary, but he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option.
Case Keenum throws one touchdown as the Broncos rout the Cardinals.
On a night Denver scored two defensive touchdowns, Keenum wasn't asked to do too much while leading the offense, as the team ran the ball more than they threw it. Keenum was 14/21 for 161 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Week 7 victory. The touchdown was a 64-yard deep ball to a wide-open Emmanuel Sanders in a broken coverage, and the interception was on an ill-advised overthrown ball in the second half. Overall, it was a solid game for Keenum, who extended plays and made accurate throws. Next up Keenum faces the Chiefs, a team he had no touchdowns and one interception against in Week 4.
Case Keenum nears 400 yards in Broncos' loss.
The Broncos led early in the game on a touchdown pass to Courtland Sutton, but it was all Jets from there as the Broncos dropped to 2-3. Keenum was 35/51 for 377 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, so the volume helped deliver a good fantasy day. However, the Broncos will ideally have a lot more balance in their offense. This makes is five straight games with an interception to open the season for Keenumm, who has seven interceptions total so far this year. Keenum is very difficult to trust in fantasy lineups next week against the Rams.
Case Keenum throws one interception in Broncos' loss.
Denver started the game hot with a couple of first-quarter touchdown runs by Emmanuel Sanders and Royce Freeman, but they were shutout by Baltimore the rest of the way. Keenum was 22/34 for 192 yards and one interception. It was a very difficult matchup with the stingy Ravens defense coming off a loss and a mini bye week. Keenum has some sneaky QB1 upside in a Week 4 matchup in which the Broncos are probably going to have to score to keep up with the Chiefs.
Case Keenum scores once in Week 2 win.
Keenum didn’t put up big numbers against the Raiders, but he helped lead Denver to 20 second-half points and a 2-0 start to the season. Keenum was 19/35 for 222 yards and an interception, and he added three carries for 16 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Next week, Keenum has a difficult matchup against a Ravens team that should be focused after a mini bye and after giving up four touchdowns to Andy Dalton.
Case Keenum throws three touchdowns and three interceptions in Broncos debut.
It was a crazy Week 1 game (like many of the Week 1 games) for Denver against the Seahawks, but they came away with a 27-24 victory. Keenum was 25/39 for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions in the win, with the touchdowns going to Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas, and undrafted rookie running back Phillip Linsday. Keenum faces the Raiders in Week 2.
Case Keenum has officially signed a two-year deal with Denver.
This was only a matter the new league year starting to allow Keenum to officially sign the deal with the Broncos, as it was the first quarterback deal revealed during the legal tampering period. Like he did during his breakout season with the Vikings last season, Keenum will have two solid receivers—Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders—on the outside, but the best connection for Keenum with Denver might be with offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, who worked with Pat Shurmer (Keenum’s coordinator last season) under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. The Broncos targeted Keenum for a reason, and he’ll look to repeat his very successful 2017 season with a new team. Keenum will have backend QB1 potential in fantasy drafts this summer.
Case Keenum plans to sign with the Broncos, according to ESPN.
ESPN's Adam Schefter says Keenum intends to sign when free agency officially opens on Wednesday at 4:00 PM ET. Keenum is only 30 years old, but he could be the perfect bridge quarterback for a young player in this year's draft such as Baker Mayfield (who profiles similarly to Keenum as a relatively shorter, playmaking quarterback). With Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on the outside for Denver, Keenum will be in a similar situation when he had Adam Thielen in Stefon Diggs in Minnesota. Now that Keenum has found his team, it makes Kirk Cousins have one less option to use for leverage as he hits free agency.
Case Keenum, Vikings get blown out by Philadelphia in the NFC Championship Game.
Keenum was 28/48 for 271 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the 38-7 loss. He also rushed once for eight yards and lost a fumble. Things started off great with an easy touchdown drive on the game's opening possession that was capped off by a 25-yard throw to Kyle Rudolph, but Philly played stout defense the rest of the way. The Eagles were up 24-7 at the half, and the Vikings couldn't climb back into it. A free-agent-to-be, it will be interesting to see where Keenum ends up this offseason, as the Vikings have a choice to make with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater also free agents. If he does come back to Minnesota, Keenum would probably be off the QB1 map with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur likely being named the next head coach of the Giants.
Case Keenum, Vikings advance to NFC Championship Game with miraculous win over New Orleans.
Keenum was 25/40 for 318 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the 29-24 victory. Down 24-23 heading into the final play of the game, Keenum tossed a pass to the sidelines that Stefon Diggs came away with and turned upfield for a 61-yard touchdown. He certainly came up when it mattered most, but Keenum can't make big mistakes—especially early—against an aggressive Philadelphia defense next week like he did when he threw an interception that allowed the Saints back in today's classic. The Vikings and Eagles play next Sunday at 6:40 PM ET.
Case Keenum avoids mistakes as Vikings lock up NFC's two seed.
Keenum was 21/29 for 189 yards and one touchdown in the Week 17 victory over the Bears, and now there's a chance the Vikings remain home in the playoffs all the way through the Super Bowl. Keenum filled in admirably for Sam Bradford, who dealt with knee issues starting in Week 1, this season, playing efficiently while making some awesome plays in Pat Shurmur's offense. He had 3,547 passing yards, 22 passing touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a 67.6% completion percentage along with 40 carries for 160 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in his 15 games (14 starts). If he avoids bad game, Keenum is likely to command the Vikings throughout the postseason, even if Bradford is ready to play.
Case Keenum plays mistake-free in win over the Packers.
The Vikings had their first shutout in 24 years in tonight's victory, so Keenum and the offense weren't asked to do much. But Keenum played well in a balanced offensive attack, going 14/25 for 139 yards and a touchdown. The score was on a nice red zone throw to the back of the end zone to Stefon Diggs, who just kept his feet in bounds. In a home game against the Bears in Week 17, Keenum will be in the QB1 conversation.
Case Keenum barely lets the ball touch the ground in easy win over Cincinnati.
Keenum was 20/23 for 236 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He also rushed once for 20 yards. Minnesota was up 17-0 at the end of the first quarter and 24-0 at halftime, as unlike the Bengals, they played mistake-free football. Keenum will look to keep it up on Saturday night against Green Bay, and he will be worth considering as a streaming option after Cam Newton just torched the Packers.
Case Keenum, Vikings fall to 10-3 after near comeback win over Carolina.
Keenum was 27/44 for 280 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. He also rushed five times for 40 yards. Minnesota's starter threw an interception on the first drive of the game, but he was great besides that. Keenum continued to show great pocket presence and poise when defenders got close, but he and the Vikings weren't helped by a big drop from Kyle Rudolph on a big gain and two near catches by Adam Thielen in the end zone to force them to settle for a short field goal. Overall, it was another strong performance by Keenum, and he should be a streaming option in Week 15 against the Bengals.
Case Keenum, Vikings improve to 10-2 with 14-9 win over Atlanta.
Keenum was 25/30 for 227 yards, two touchdowns, and zero turnovers, and he was basically perfect in the second half when he completed 18-of-18 passes, including the game-winning touchdown to Kyle Rudolph. Minnesota has now won eight-straight games and sit atop the NFC after Philly's loss to the Seahawks on Sunday night. It's going to be difficult to take Keenum off the field in favor of Teddy Bridgewater at this point, but next week in Carolina will be a difficult task. The Vikings quarterback is a solid QB2 option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Case Keenum plays great again as Vikings improve to 9-2.
Keenum has been filling in admirably as the starting quarterback for the Vikings, but this might've been his best game overall today. He made almost all great decisions, making very accurate passes while also picking up yardage with his legs when needed. Overall, Keenum was 21/30 for 282 yards and two touchdowns while adding seven carries for 20 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The throwing scores both went to Kyle Rudolph, with the second coming on a dime to the end zone as Keenum was hit by a free rusher. And the rushing score came on a zone read where he got through a couple of tackles. As long as Keenum keeps playing like this and the Vikings are winning, he'll continue to stay under center for them. He gets the Falcons next.
Case Keenum, Vikings win sixth-straight game, improve to 8-2 with win over the Rams.
Keenum was 27/38 for 280 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions. He also rushed three times for 20 yards. There was uncertainty heading into the game whether Keenum or Teddy Bridgewater would start against Los Angeles, but there should be no doubt who the starter will be on Thanksgiving against the Lions. Expect Minnesota to roll with the hot hand for as long as they're winning. Keenum is a decent streamer in Week 12.
Case Keenum will remain the Vikings' starter in Week 11.
Despite the two bad interceptions that raised some cause for concern, this was expected after Keenum threw four touchdowns and played outstanding for most of their win against the Redskins last Sunday. Teddy Bridgewater is still waiting in the wings and could hit the field at any moment, but the Vikings are wise to stick with Keenum while the team is on a role like this. Facing his former Rams team (which is currently 7-2) this Sunday, Keenum playing another solid game would likely make the Vikings confident to keep riding the hot hand as long as they can. Consider Keenum a solid QB2 for Week 11.
Case Keenum throws four touchdowns as Vikings improve to 7-2.
Keenum started the game off extremely well, making it hard to take him off the field for Teddy Bridgewater, who was active for his first game since his terrible injury right before last season. But two interceptions after the outstanding start was a bit concerning, as one was on an ill-advised throw that went right to safety D.J. Swearinger after Keenum basically threw it up instead of throwing it away; and the second was on a pass to the flat that Swearinger telegraphed and took for a pick-six. Overall, Keenum was 21/29 for 304 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions, and he made some superb throws throughout the game—some from different platforms and while scrambling around to buy time for his receivers. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has said he has a plan for when Bridgewater will play—and the plan certainly seems to be that Bridgewater will be the starter—but it might not come until a Vikings loss or a poor performance by Keenum.
Case Keenum throws two touchdowns as the Vikings improve to 6-2.
Early in the game, Keenum had a pass tipped and intercepted, but he took it in stride and played very well after that against Cleveland, going 27/43 for 288 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The first touchdown was to a wide-open Adam Thielen in the back of the end zone for 18 yards, and the second was on a perfect throw to the back of the end zone to a tightly-covered Kyle Rudolph for four yards. He did miss a couple throws and appeared to have not seen a wide-open Stefon Diggs running free down the field on one play, but overall the Vikings have to be happy with how Keenum is playing in relief of Sam Bradford. Things will get interesting in Week 10 when the Vikings return from their bye, as Teddy Bridgewater might be ready to play, and maybe Sam Bradford will even be healthy from his knee injury.
Case Keenum will start Sunday against the Browns.
This is the least bit surprising, as Teddy Bridgewater is still working his way back in full practices, and Sam Bradford is still trying to get healthy from his knee injury. So it'll officially be Keenum under center in London against the Browns, and he'll look to keep the Vikings going while avoiding mistakes in a game the defense should be able to win for them. The Vikings have a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is when things will really get interesting. Hopefully Bradford is healthy by then, and Bridgwater might have gotten enough practice time by then to also be ready.
Vikings improve to 5-2 behind strong running game and defense.
Case Keenum played well and gave his team a chance to win the game, going 20/31 for 188 yards and an interception along with a nine-yard carry. The interception came on a deep shot where he gave receiver Laquon Treadwell a chance to make a play, but it appears Treadwell was interfered with and it was not called. The Vikings now travel to London to face the Browns in Week 8, and hopefully Keenum can put his four-interception performance in London last season behind him, as he'll probably be under center unless Sam Bradford makes a quick turnaround with his knee injury.
Case Keenum was 24/38 for 239 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's win over the Packers.
He also rushed twice for 15 yards. Keenum and the Vikings were able to fairly easily handle their divisional rivals once Aaron Rodgers went down early with a broken collarbone, and they had a good offensive balance that they'll look to continue in Week 7 against Baltimore. Keenum isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Case Keenum plays well in relief of Sam Bradford.
With Bradford unable to play like his usual self, Keenum entered the game late in the second quarter just before halftime and gave the Vikings a boost on offense for the rest of the game. Keenum was 17/21 for 140 yards and a touchdown in the game, along with a 22-yard carry. He kept the offense moving, and it looks like he'll probably have to do it again this Sunday against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, as Bradford sadly does not look ready to contribute the way he's capable of.
Case Keenum makes third straight start in Vikings' loss.
Keenum filled in for Sam Bradford again, going 16/30 for 219 yards in a tough defensive game against the Lions. Bradford might be back for Week 5 on Monday night versus Chicago, but Keenum wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option even if he plays again.
Case Keenum lights up the Bucs in Vikings' win.
Keenum was 25/33 for 369 yards and three touchdowns in what might have been the best game of his career so far. It was great to see him step up with Sam Bradford (knee) out another week, as wins like this could be huge late in the season for a team hoping to be playoff and Super Bowl contenders. Hopefully Bradford is back next week against the Lions, but the Vikings will look to Keenum to keep it going if not.
Vikings struggle offensively and lose in Pittsburgh in Week 2.
Without quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) the Vikings struggled to get much going on offense. Case Keenum had a difficult task stepping in to start against a tough defense, and he was only 20/37 for 167 yards in the game. Keenum should get better as he gets more time in the offense, but the Vikings probably need Sam Bradford back to be serious Super Bowl contenders this season. The Buccaneers come to Minnesota in Week 3.
Quarterback Case Keenum is signing with the Vikings, according to Mark Breman of FOX 26 Houston.
Keenum opened the season as the Rams' starter last season, but was benched for number one overall pick Jared Goff during the season. If Teddy Bridgewater (knee) isn't ready for the season, Keenum will be the backup to Sam Bradford.
Keenum plays mistake-free in Rams Week 10 victory over Jets.
He was 17/30 for 165 yards. You have some guts if you want to stick Keenum into your fantasy lineup.
