Broncos' Devontae Booker: Records three touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booker rushed for 17 yards on three carries during Denver's 20-19 win over Oakland.

Head coach Vance Joseph has repeatedly preached that the depth chart doesn't matter at running back and that the team will ride the hot hand. Booker managed to record more snaps than rookie starter Royce Freeman, 22 to 16, on Sunday. That's what passes for good news for Booker. Freeman still ended up with five more touches than Booker and, more importantly, undrafted phenom Phillip Lindsay ended the game with a stable-leading 28 snaps on his way to his second-consecutive 100-yard game. No matter what the depth chart or snap-count says, Booker is a distant third in line among Broncos backs.

Broncos' Jake Butt: Snags four passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt reeled in four of six targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 20-19 win over the Raiders.

Facing second and 10 with just over a minute remaining, Case Keenum dropped back and found Butt for a 14-yard gain, pushing the Broncos offense to midfield on their way to a comeback win. For the second consecutive week, Butt delivered a key reception during a game-winning scoring drive. He might be the team's No. 2 tight end, but he has over twice as many targets as starter Jeff Heuerman through two games.

Broncos' Jake Butt: Ties for second in targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt hauled in four of six targets for 48 yards Sunday in the Broncos' 20-19 win over the Raiders.

Though he only played 26 of a possible 66 offensive snaps, Butt was a go-to option for quarterback Case Keenum whenever he was on the field, finishing tied for second on the team in targets. Jeff Heuerman started and out-snapped Butt for the second straight week, but he's filled mostly a blocking role for the Broncos thus far. Butt will need to eat further into Heuerman's snap count to improve his season-long outlook, but it's clear the 2017 fifth-round pick is the superior pass-catching threat of the two and thus offers more fantasy appeal.

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.
