Boone signs with Broncos | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

RB Mike Boone signed a 2-year, $2.6 million contract with the Broncos, according to insider Mike Klis. Boone averaged a strong 5.3 yards on 71 carries with the Vikings over the past 3 seasons. He joins a currently crowded Denver backfield alongside Melvin Gordon, Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman -- although there's a chance restricted free-agent Lindsay departs. Still, Boone is off the fantasy radar for now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter expects it to be "the Mike Boone show" in Minnesota's backfield against the Packers on Monday night. "With the Vikings now having wrapped up a playoff slot, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for Minnesota to play injured RB Alexander Mattison," Schefter writes. It sounds like Mattison (ankle) will join Dalvin Cook on the inactive list, leaving Boone as the Vikings' lead back. He's a RB2 with upside in Week 16 fantasy lineups.
