Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Dan Duggan of The Athletic reported that the Giants considered Booker a “priority free agent.” That’s backed up by the fact that the time signed him right at the beginning of free agency.
  • The Giants also let RB Wayne Gallman walk in free agency after he led the 2020 team in rushing.
  • As of this writing, only Ryquel Armstead, Corey Clement and 6th-round rookie Gary Brightwell sit behind Booker on the RB depth chart.
  • Booker averaged a career-low 4.9 yards per reception with the Raiders last year. He’s averaging 7.8 yards per catch for his career.
  • Booker earned his best Pro Football Focus overall and rushing grades last season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We could dig further into Booker’s numbers, but there’s really no point. He hasn’t been all that good in the NFL (or fantasy). But the Giants clearly consider him an upgrade over their entire 2020 backup plan for Barkley. So Booker’s in line to get a whole bunch of touches should Barkley go down again. He’ll need that if he’s to find meaningful fantasy value.

RB Devontae Booker has inked a 2-year, $6 million deal with the Giants, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Booker is coming off a solid season in Vegas that saw him average 4.5 yards per carry and haul in 17 of 21 targets. He's a reliable pass-catcher but is stretched as anything more than a change-of-pace back. That's exactly what he'll be in New York as long as Saquon Barkley makes a successful return from last year's torn ACL.

The Raiders signed RB Devontae Booker. The former Bronco has mustered just 3.8 yards per carry over 4 NFL seasons but has averaged 8.3 yards per catch on 105 grabs. He'll compete for a pass-catching role in Las Vegas. Booker is far from a lock to make the final roster, but his addition is another sign that the Raiders aren't ready to hand RB Josh Jacobs a 3-down, workhorse role. The team has also re-signed RB Jalen Richard and drafted RB Lynn Bowden this offseason.

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.
