The Broncos selected Oregon RB Royce Freeman with the 71st overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Freeman was a 4-year producer for the Ducks, tallying 1,365+ rushing yards and 16+ TDs 3 separate times. He left school with a 5.9 yards-per-carry average. Freeman also contributed in the passing game, totaling 79 catches for 814 yards (10.3 YPC) and 4 scores over the past 4 seasons. The 6’0, 229-pounder tested as a 55th percentile athlete at the Combine and was especially impressive with a 72nd percentile time in the 3-cone, a drill that’s been predictive of NFL success for RBs. Freeman lands in a good spot in Denver, where he’s capable of immediately pushing Devontae Booker for the lead job.
Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Freeman has averaged 10.1 carries per game so far and might see less work than that against the Chargers this weekend with RB Phillip Lindsay playing well.
Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. That again leaves the backfield to Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker. With Freeman out last week, Lindsay carried 18 times and caught all 3 of his targets while Booker handled 9 carries and 4 targets.
Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is not expected to play against Houston today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Freeman is officially questionable, and HC Vance Joseph told the team website Friday that he's "getting better fast." But the team will reportedly let him rest the ankle through the Week 10 bye. Freeman's absence helps the touch outlooks for Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker, each of whom posted nice fantasy numbers (in a much better matchup) last week against the Chiefs.
Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the first 2 workouts of the week. We’d bet against Freeman playing on Sunday. But if he does, it’d be a knock to RB Phillip Lindsay’s fantasy value.
Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) was listed as "did not practice" again on Thursday. Reporters saw him on the field for the start of the workout, but he didn't participate in team drills. Freeman continues to look unlikely to play against the Texans this weekend.
