2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
An early-season wrist injury cost Devontae Booker significant playing time this past season, which is disappointing because many believed that he would end up out-scoring veteran C.J. Anderson in the Denver backfield if he was given the opportunity. Despite playing in 13 games, Booker failed to reach even 300 yards on the ground and faded into relative obscurity as the season went on.

Booker is likely considered the "starter" heading into camp but don't be fooled by that. The Broncos selected Royce Freeman in the third round of the draft and there's really no question that he's the preferred option for fantasy purposes. Booker simply lacks the size, speed or strength to be an every down workhorse and despite his production in the passing game, he's not good enough there to completely keep Freeman off the field in all passing downs.

Booker is a late-round PPR option at best but he would almost certainly take over as the top back on the roster if Freeman were to go down with an injury, so there's some upside there as well.

News From The Past 90 Days
Royce Freeman "absolutely" could be lead back
Third-round pick competing with Devontae Booker
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 25, 2:20 pm

Denver Broncos
Royce Freeman was the Broncos’ third-round pick in this past April’s draft - the 71st player selected overall. Just hours after the selection, Broncos GM John Elway said: “He’s a big banger that we haven’t had for a while, so we’re excited to have him." Two months later, Freeman, with his combination of size and speed, made it fairly clear that he’s going to push Devontae Booker to be at the top of the running back depth chart. Asked just before the Broncos finished minicamp if he believed Freeman could put himself in the conversation to be the team’s lead back, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said “absolutely.” (ESPN - Jeff Legwold)

FFToday's Take: Freeman being in the race to be the starting running back isn't earth-shattering news, but it's nice to know he must have looked good in minicamp. The question Freeman needs to answer is if he is all the way back from his 2016 knee injury - because he lacked his former explosiveness in 2017. If he is, the rookie could be the first Bronco since 2004 to top 250 carries and live up to his 5.08 ADP in PPR formats. If not, he'll likely end up in a committee with Devontae Booker.


Denver to use 'heavy dose' of Devontae Booker?
Local paper suggests Booker has secured meaningful role
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 11, 7:30 pm

Denver Broncos
C.J. Anderson‘s departure to Carolina opens up plenty of carries in a backfield that should feature a heavy dose of Devontae Booker and a yet-to-be-determined second option. The Broncos added two rushers in the draft (Royce Freeman and David Williams), plus Phillip Lindsay as an undrafted free agent from Colorado. Second-year Bronco De’Angelo Henderson will also be in the mix. (The Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: OC Bill Musgrave talked recently about how this year's offense will be drastically different than last year's. While it is quite possible Booker will begin the season as the 1A back to another player's 1B (likely Freeman), the third-year back hasn't done enough with his few chances to have anything locked up. Freeman should still be considered the favorite to emerge from this backfield and be no worse than a serviceable flex option for the bulk of the season.
