  • Freeman rushed 130 times for 521 yards and five touchdowns and added 72 yards on 14 receptions over 14 games this season. Freeman entered 2018 as the Broncos' presumptive starting running back but quickly lost those duties to fellow rookie Phillip Lindsay. While Lindsay proved to be the more effective runner of the two, Freeman still showed flashes of promise during an otherwise ugly season for Denver. He punctuated his campaign on a good note in Week 17 against the Chargers while Lindsay was out following wrist surgery, amassing 103 total yards on 25 touches. Though he'll likely slot in as the No. 2 option on the depth chart to begin 2019, Freeman should be a high-upside replacement option in the event Lindsay misses time.

  • Broncos' Royce Freeman: Tops 100 total yards in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Freeman rushed 17 times for 60 yards and caught eight of 10 targets for 43 more yards in Sunday's 23-9 loss to the Chargers. Freeman took full advantage of Philip Lindsay's absence due to a wrist injury and saw season highs in carries, targets, and total yards. The 22-year-old finishes his rookie season with 130 rushes for 521 yards and five touchdowns to go with 14 catches for 72 yards. He'll likely serve in a backup role to Lindsay again in 2019.

  • Broncos' Royce Freeman: Designated as lead back
    By RotoWire Staff

    Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave confirmed that Freeman will serve as the Broncos' lead back Sunday against the Chargers, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports. This was the expected outcome after it was revealed Wednesday that standout rookie Phillip Lindsay (wrist) wouldn't play in Week 17 with surgery on deck. Lindsay's absence leaves Freeman and Devontae Booker as the only backs on the active roster, with Freeman outpacing Booker in carries by a 113-29 margin. Musgrave still noted that Booker will "get a bunch of runs" in addition to presumably serving as the Broncos' primary pass-catching option out of the backfield, but unless Denver falls behind big early and is forced into catch-up mode, Freeman projects as the higher-upside fantasy play of the two.

  • Broncos' Royce Freeman: Likely top back in Week 17
    By RotoWire Staff

    Freeman is expected to work as the Broncos' lead rusher out of the backfield Sunday against the Chargers with Phillip Lindsay (wrist) set to miss the contest, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. After undergoing an MRI on Tuesday, Lindsay was diagnosed with significant ligament damage in his right wrist, which he injured in the Week 16 loss to the Raiders. Lindsay will receive a second opinion on the injury before it's determined whether surgery is necessary, but the Broncos won't keep the undrafted rookie active even if he receives positive news. As a result, Freeman will likely have his best opportunity since Week 1 -- when he logged a season-high 15 carries -- to make a major splash in the fantasy realm. He won't necessarily have a clear path to a three-down role, however, as Devontae Booker likely will see a fair amount of work in obvious passing situations.

  • Broncos' Royce Freeman: Seven carries in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Freeman rushed seven times for 21 yards and couldn't corral his lone target in Monday night's 27-14 loss to Oakland. Freeman became the Broncos' lead back once Phillip Lindsay was ruled out in the second half with a wrist injury, but the 22-year-old didn't do much with the opportunity. Game script didn't help, though, as the Broncos trailed by multiple scores for much of the contest. If Lindsay is unable to go at home Week 17 against the Chargers, Freeman likely would share backfield duties with Devontae Booker.
