Broncos' Royce Freeman: Scores first career touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman rushed eight times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-19 defeat of Oakland. He failed to catch his only target.

Freeman drew the start and struggled to begin the game, gaining just two yards on three carries over the first two quarters. He was fortunate to cap off the opening drive of the second half with a 1-yard touchdown run, but Phillip Lindsay outperformed his fellow rookie on the whole and saw almost double the touches. The 22-year-old will try to be more effective Week 3 at Baltimore.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Totals 111 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindsay rushed 14 times for 107 yards and added four yards with his lone reception in Sunday's 20-19 win over Oakland.

Lindsay did not start but out-touched all other Bronco running backs, 15-11, on the day anyway. He broke a 53-yard run on the Broncos' first drive of the second quarter and began to dominate the backfield touches after that. The 24-year-old ceded goal-line work to Royce Freeman, however, and the latter took advantage by finding the end zone for a third-quarter score. The two should continue to share the load Week 3 at Baltimore.

Broncos' Case Keenum: Rushes for touchdown in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 19-of-35 pass attempts for 222 yards and an interception in Sunday's 20-19 win over Oakland. He added 16 yards and a touchdown on three carries.

Keenum was just 5-of-11 for 38 yards, three first downs, and zero scoring drives in the first half. He started with three three-and-outs in the first quarter and followed that up with an interception to start the second. However, the 30-year-old regrouped at the break and led scoring drives on all four second-half possessions, concluding the comeback win with his own rushing score and Brandon McManus' game-winning field goal with just six seconds left. While the Houston product will certainly take the win, he has had a bit of a rocky start to his Broncos career and will look for more consistency Week 3 at Baltimore.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Lands on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolfe was a limited participant at Thursday's practice with an abdominal muscle strain.

Coach Vance Joseph downplayed Wolfe's injury, saying "He's okay. He'll be fine," but the specifics of the issue remain unclear. The 28-year-old played 47 of 57 defensive snaps in the season opener, but registered only a single tackle in the contest.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Targeted once
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman hauled in his lone target, a gain of 15 yards, during Sunday's 27-24 win over Seattle.

The Broncos' tight end hierarchy has arguably been the team's least clear position battle. Sunday didn't clear things up too much. Heuerman logged starter-level snaps -- 60 in all -- to Jake Butt's 36, but it was Butt who was targeted four times to Heuerman's one. If Heuerman is getting more snaps, but fewer looks, is he really more valuable than Butt?
