Paxton Lynch is working with TB12's Alex Guerrero.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Lynch already worked with Guerrero once and is going to fly up to Foxborough to work with him again in April. Guerrero is Tom Brady's personal body coach and helped Brady craft the TB12 Method. If you look at the success Brady is having into his 40s, it's difficult not to love the decision by Lynch to use the methods Brady has used to remain in his prime even as he ages. Lynch should have a great diet, and following the TB12 Method will allow him to workout in ways that will directly translate to the football field. This news comes days after Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said they still believe in Lynch. While many negative people out there might have already counted out the third-year quarterback, Lynch's career could be on the rise.

Paxton Lynch, Broncos fall to 5-11 with Week 17 loss.

Lynch was 21/31 for 254 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions against Kansas City's backups. He also rushed three times for 13 yards. The 2016 first-round pick finishes the regular season with just two appearances (both starts), completing 66.7% of his passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. Lynch might not make another start in Denver if they take a signal-caller early in April's draft. Even if he opens 2018 as the starter, he wouldn't be a fantasy option.

Paxton Lynch is starting for the Broncos this week.

Now fully healthy, it’s not a surprise Denver is getting a look at their second-year quarterback before the regular season is over. Lynch isn’t a recommended fantasy option for Week 17 against the Chiefs, but it’ll be interesting to watch how he performs ahead of the offseason.

Multiple reports: Paxton Lynch has a high-ankle sprain.

A high-ankle sprain is no joke and might keep the second-year quarterback out for the rest of the season. Trevor Siemian, who played very well when he came in for Lynch in yesterday's loss to Oakland, will now take over as the starter and will attempt to show he can be the team's answer at quarterback heading into 2018. It's a shame for Lynch, as this both hurts his chances to show what he can do, as well as his chance for some valuable playing experience as the starter.

Paxton Lynch (ankle) is done for the day.

Lynch's ankle injury doesn't appear too serious, but the team declared him out for the rest of the game against the Raiders. The second-year quarterback couldn't get much of anything going against Oakland, going 9/14 for 41 yards and an interception while adding two carries for 20 yards on the ground. The interception came on a throw on the run to the end zone that looked like it could've been caught but was pinballed around and eventually landed in linebacker NaVorro Bowman's lap. Trevor Siemian is now in the game with the Broncos down 21-0, and we'll see how the quarterback situation is heading into Week 13.

The Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch in Week 12, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.

Graziano reports the announcement is expected to come tomorrow. This isn't surprising at all, as the Broncos already fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy yesterday, and at 3-7 their clearly trying to get some type of spark to end their six-game losing streak. Lynch, who appeared in three games last year and played pretty well considering he was a rookie, will now get a chance to runaway with the starting job for the rest of this season and beyond. The 2016 first-rounder has some raw ability and a lot of potential, but he's not a recommended fantasy pickup in standard-sized leagues.

Paxton Lynch is active against the Bengals.

This is Lynch's first time active this season, as he dealt with a shoulder injury from the preseason that he had to work his way back from. The second-year quarterback will be backing up Brock Osweiler, and he's probably a good bet to get some playing time at some point this season.

Paxton Lynch (shoulder) is practicing for the Broncos.

The second-year quarterback is back practicing after the shoulder injury from the preseason kept him out for about two months, but the team will likely take their time bringing him back. The Broncos intend to keep Trevor Siemian as the starter, and they have capable backup Brock Osweiler currently behind him. However, if Siemian continues to struggle like he has recently, Lynch might make some starts this season—though he probably wouldn't provide a lot of fantasy value and is more of a dynasty league prospect.

Paxton Lynch (shoulder) is expected to be out 3-4 weeks, according to Adam Schefter.

Lynch landed on his shoulder in the Broncos' third preseason game, and him being out a few more weeks is part of why the Broncos wanted to re-sign Brock Osweiler after he was cut from the Browns. John Elway said Lynch will be the backup when he's back and healthy, but we'll see what happens when that time comes.

Paxton Lynch is out a few weeks with a shoulder sprain, according to James Palmer.

Lynch landed directly on his right arm in Saturday night's preseason game against the Broncos. It's possible the Broncos bring in another quarterback, but Kyle Sloter looked very good in the Week 3 preseason game and should be the backup to Trevor Siemian to open the year. Lynch will try to get healthy so he can return and be Siemian's backup and ready to go in case the Broncos need him.

Paxton Lynch leaves Broncos' preseason game with a shoulder injury.

Lynch, who entered the game after starter Trevor Siemian, is questionable to return to the exhibition against the Packers. Kyle Slater is now in the game for the Broncos. Lynch was 1/2 for nine yards and a 15-yard run before exiting.

Paxton Lynch struggles in preseason start.

Lynch was 9/13 for just 39 yards. He was actually more effective running the ball, which he did three times for 27 yards. Denver has a ready-to-win defense, so it was clear that Siemian is a better option than the unpolished Lynch. He should officially be named the #2 quarterback sometime this week.

Paxton Lynch goes 6/9 for 42 yards against the Bears in Week 1 of the preseason.

Lynch also had four carries for 11 yards. He came in after Trevor Siemian started the game. Based off the short time they were in, Siemian probably helped himself more in this game, though Lynch is scheduled to start the second preseason game next Saturday and could make a statement with a great performance.

Paxton Lynch will start the Broncos' second preseason game.

Head coach Vance Joseph announced Trevor Siemian will start the first game, with Lynch starting the second. This probably means the battle won't be decided for a couple weeks, but things can change if one of them distances themselves in the first game and practice. Ideally, the starter will be named before the third preseason game so that quarterback can get a lot of time in the dress-rehersal preseason game.

Demaryius Thomas says Paxton Lynch was "lighting it up" in the last two weeks of offseason training.

Mike Klis recorded DT talking at his youth football camp. Thomas said Trevor Siemian has been a steady performer, while Lynch lit it up towards the end causing Thomas to be "like woah." The second-year quarterback with great tools will look to continue to progress throughout training camp and heading into the season. According to Klis, Thomas said that "about a week and a half into camp" is when he'd like the quarterback battle to be over. While Thomas probably wants as many reps as possible with the opening day starter, his head coach Vance Joseph has said he isn't going to rush the competition. It's a toss up between Lynch and Siemian right now. Lynch probably offers more upside in fantasy leagues.

Paxton Lynch struggles in second career start.

Filling in for an injured Trevor Siemian, Lynch was 12/24 for 104 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero turnovers, adding two carries for 11 yards. The Broncos got a pick-six and were facing Jacksonville, so they still won 20-10 despite the rookie's struggles. Siemian's job is in zero danger when he returns, especially since he is coming off arguably his best game in Denver's Week 12 loss. Lynch obviously isn't a fantasy option even if he starts next Sunday against the Titans.

Rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch will start this Sunday against the Jaguars.

It'll be Lynch's second career start, as he started in Week 5 against the Falcons. Lynch has looked good for his limited action this year, considering that many people thought he was an unpolished prospect coming out of Memphis. Lynch will be someone to keep an eye on this weekend. He'll be a QB2 for fantasy purposes.
