QB: Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater is expected to clear the league's concussion protocol and play in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Bridgewater playing despite the brain injury is excellent news for every fantasy-relevant Bronco. Drew Lock was his usual erratic self in relief of Bridgewater in Week 4 against the Ravens, and would have dragged down Denver pass catchers and running backs. Bridgewater could be a quietly solid option against a pass-funnel Pittsburgh defense, as 72.33 percent of yards gained against the Steelers this year have come through the air -- the ninth highest rate in the NFL.
