Broncos | Royce Freeman could be primary back soon

Tue, 14 Aug 2018 09:06:56 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman "will be the primary back before too long," according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold.

Fantasy Tip: Legwold cautions this news might not mean Freeman will see 250 carries, but he's going to get work, already blocks well enough to play on third down and is the favorite to get red zone chances. Devontae Booker is going to mix in to be sure, but it sounds as if the rookie now has a realistic shot of becoming the next C.J. Anderson in this offense. Freeman is starting to sound as if he could be a strong value pick in the fifth round.

Broncos | Fast start for Royce Freeman

Sat, 11 Aug 2018 20:39:19 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed four times for 38 yards and a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman and Devontae Booker are likely to be the main cogs in a committee this year, but Freeman showcased why many believe he will be leading the backfield when all is said and done. He's a RB3 candidate in redraft leagues.

Broncos | Denver to use two RBs with starters

Thu, 09 Aug 2018 14:15:59 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker and RB Royce Freeman will split snaps with the first-team offense during the first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Booker and Freeman are competing for the starting job and likely will continue to split snaps with the starters until the team names a winner. The team probably will use a committee regardless of who wins the competition, so both running backs will have fantasy value.

Broncos | RB job wide open in Denver

Sun, 29 Jul 2018 12:19:59 -0700

Denver Broncos RBs Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, De'Angelo Henderson and Phillip Lindsay all received first-team reps Sunday, July 29, prompting Lindsay H. Jones of USA TODAY Sports to say the "running back job is totally open."

Fantasy Tip: This has been a familiar refrain throughout the spring and summer, although 9News' Mike Klis has emphasized Booker figures to be the lead back early on due to a "good command" of the offensive playbook. Head coach Vance Joseph has repeatedly said he expects two or three backs will handle the load, so this has all the makings of being a committee backfield for most - if not all - of the 2018 season.

Broncos | Devontae Booker to open season as starter?

Sun, 22 Jul 2018 10:45:42 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has "good command" of the offensive playbook and become a competent pass protector, according to Mike Klis of 9News, who added Booker is expected to start the season opener over Royce Freeman against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: This news figures to sink the current fifth-round ADP of Freeman and spike the 12th-round ADP of Booker temporarily at the very least. Denver head coach Vance Joseph has already stated he plans on utilizing two and possibly three backs all season long, so this has all the makings of being a "hot-hand" backfield. Both Booker and Freeman need to be viewed as high-upside RB3s for the time being.

Broncos | Royce Freeman a capable receiver

Thu, 19 Jul 2018 20:04:48 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman "catches the ball well," according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is already expected to see his share of carries on early downs, and if he can contribute in the passing game, it will only improve his chances of becoming the unquestioned lead back. He's a RB3 candidate in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Broncos | Royce Freeman could start

Sat, 14 Jul 2018 21:33:15 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will be given every opportunity to earn the starting job, according to retired SS Steve Atwater.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman will have to contend with Devontae Booker, but Booker hasn't exactly shown much upside. Don't be surprised if Freeman ends up handling a lot of early-down work. He's a RB3 candidate in redraft leagues and is locked in as a first-round prospect in rookie drafts.

Broncos | Royce Freeman signing contract

Thu, 05 Jul 2018 11:04:23 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman is signing his four-year rookie deal Thursday, July 5, according to a source. The deal includes a $997,020 signing bonus, but other financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is poised to take over the starting job in Denver's backfield, but he'll need to fend off Devontae Booker in training camp and the preseason. At least look for Freeman to see the majority of carries en route to a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 rookie campaign.

Broncos | Royce Freeman has an opening

Mon, 25 Jun 2018 08:00:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has the opportunity to be the team's lead back, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos haven't had a back carry the ball 250 times since 2004, and Freeman would likely share the load with Devontae Booker. If Freeman is able to grab at least a 50-50 split, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.

Broncos | Big role for Royce Freeman?

Sat, 23 Jun 2018 19:28:49 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has a chance to do "Kareem Hunt type things," according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman should at least be part of the running back rotation in Denver, and he has a decent chance to emerge as the lead back, especially on early downs. If he breaks camp as the starter, he is worth grabbing as a RB3, and he is a potential first-round pick in rookie drafts regardless.
