2021 Fantasy Outlook
Entering the 2021 season, Rypien would appear to have the edge to lock up the QB3 spot in Denver. Assuming offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur carries three quarterbacks on the final roster as he usually does, Rypien's experience in Denver's system is an added bonus in the quarterback room. Nonetheless, playing time will be hard to come by in 2021 for the veteran backup, as he is behind incumbent starter Drew Lock and newcomer Teddy Bridgewater on the team's depth chart.

Ascends to No. 2 role Week 9
QBDenver Broncos
November 7, 2021
Rypien will serve as the backup quarterback behind starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Aside from exiting early in Week 4 with a concussion, Bridgewater has been healthy and has started every game this season, resulting in Rypien being a fixture on the inactive list as the team's No. 3 quarterback. However, with top backup Drew Lock moving to the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Rypien will get the chance to dress Week 9. The Broncos haven't revealed whether Lock tested positive for the virus or if he was ruled out for contact tracing, making it unclear if Rypien will remain the No. 2 signal-caller beyond this week.
