The Broncos' initial -- "unofficial" -- depth chart lists RB Devontae Booker as the starter, with rookie Royce Freeman 2nd, followed by De'Angelo Henderson, Dave Williams and Phillip Lindsay. That's not a surprising development but at least a reminder that Freeman hasn't taken over the gig yet. Playing time will be interesting to watch as Denver gets into preseason action. We're still betting Freeman will wind up leading the team in carries, but there's certainly value potential on Booker at his RB49 ADP -- as well as the chance he remains the Broncos' lead back.

Broncos insider Troy Renck reports that RB Devontae Booker was limited by the flu in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. He played just 11 snaps and handled only 3 touches after averaging 28.8 and 10.6, respectively, over his previous 5 games. RB C.J. Anderson piled up 110 total yards on 19 touches vs. Miami, but it sounds like we can't count on that type of volume again as long as Booker is healthy.

Broncos RB Devontae Booker practiced on Wednesday for the 1st time since undergoing wrist surgery in late July. It's unclear if he'll play against the Cowboys this weekend. When he does return, he figures to be 3rd on the depth chart behind C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles. Booker is worth monitoring but not worth rostering outside of super-deep fantasy leagues.

Update: HC Vance Joseph said after practice that Booker won't play on Sunday. He's likely targeting a Week 3 return.

Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) is targeting a Week 3 return, according to insider Troy Renck. Booker was back at practice on Wednesday with a brace on the fractured wrist he had surgery on in late July. He'll have an opportunity to carve out a role once he's back to 100%. But between the injury, a disappointing rookie season and a crowded Denver depth chart, it's tough to spend a draft pick on Booker.

Broncos HC Vance Joseph announced that RB Devontae Booker will undergo surgery to repair his fractured wrist on Friday. He's expected to miss 6 weeks, which would have Booker back a few days before Week 1. Joseph expects him to be ready for the start of the regular season. Still, the missed camp and preseason time will make Booker a non-option in fantasy lineups early on.
