    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed 14 times for 44 yards and caught five passes for 54 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Booker had his best game of the season, and he had more touches than C.J. Anderson. Expect a committee approach to continue in Denver, but Booker looks like a viable flex play in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 8:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has made the most of his limited touches, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'He's a young guy with strong, fresh legs,' Joseph said. 'He has great ball skills. As we go along here, he should get more opportunities.'

    Huddle Up: Booker isn't seeing enough touches to be considered a fantasy starter, but he is worth stashing in deeper leagues and keeper formats.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 8:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed for a season-high 40 yards on six carries and scored his first touchdown of the year in the team's Week 8 loss Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He also had three receptions for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Even with Denver losing decisively for most of this game, Booker was still able to chip in a solid performance that easily registers as his best of the campaign. Unfortunately for the second-year man out of Utah, C.J. Anderson is still around, meaning Booker's ceiling will always be severely capped. He's worth stashing on most rosters, however, and could be a useful option down the road.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 5:16am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker caught four of six passes for 78 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Booker may be a flex option going forward, as he flew under the radar screen in Sunday's loss. Booker hasn't had a role in the running game, but performances like this will keep him in Trevor Siemian's eye for future games.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 7:42am ET

    There is 'no chance' of the Denver Broncos trading RB Devontae Booker, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Booker doesn't appear to have a well-defined role in the Denver offense at the moment, with Jamaal Charles doing an impressive job as the backup to C.J. Anderson. He isn't worth stashing outside of keeper and dynasty leagues with deep rosters.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 9:14pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders will be determined Sunday, Oct. 1, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: With the emergence of Jamaal Charles as an effective backup to C.J. Anderson, Booker's role in the offense is murky at this point. Outside of keeper leagues, he doesn't need to be owned.

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders will be determined Sunday, Oct. 1, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: With the emergence of Jamaal Charles as an effective backup to C.J. Anderson, Booker's role in the offense is murky at this point. Outside of keeper leagues, he doesn't need to be owned.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 5:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker probably will need to practice this week if he wants a chance to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably would receive limited touches if he plays in Week 3 and can be avoided in most leagues if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 3:19pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Booker is expected to miss Week 2 but could return in the near future. He has a chance to become the No. 2 running back when he returns and should have some value in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 5:47pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) is not expected to play in Week 2 even though he was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker is probably a week or two away from returning, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Jamaal Charles should continue to serve as the No. 2 running back for now but should not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 2:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: With Booker absent for Week 1 it was Jamaal Charles seeing 10 touches in his stead behind the dominant C.J. Anderson. It's uncertain if Booker will go in Week 2, but if he does it will eat into the touches for Charles. When active, do not expect Booker to be thrust into a big role, however, as long as C.J. Anderson is running hard. A reasonable estimate is that Booker tops out at 10-12 touches upon his initial return.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 2:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) X-rays on his injured wrist looked good and he may practice as soon as this week or next week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: When Booker does return, he'll need to fend off Jamaal Charles, DeAngelo Henderson and possibly Jonathan Williams for playing time, not to mention starter C.J. Anderson. He can be avoided in traditional leagues as long as Anderson is healthy.

  • Posted: 8/23/2017 1:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 23. He is hoping to be back in action by Week 3 of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Denver's backfield depth is hazy after C.J. Anderson. Rookie De'Angelo Henderson has flashed in the preseason, but he'll have to hold off Booker and Jamaal Charles, if Charles makes the team, for significant playing time.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 12:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) will have surgery to fix his fractured wrist Friday, July 28. His recovery time is expected to be six weeks.

    Huddle Up: Jamaal Charles and rookie De'Angelo Henderson will have to pick up the slack behind C.J. Anderson for the time being. The backfield will take shape in the preseason, but Booker should reprise his backup role once he returns.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 6:53am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) has a fractured wrist that he has been lifting with for weeks, according to a source. He aggravated it in training.

    Huddle Up: Booker is expected to miss six to eight weeks, which will likely cut into the first few weeks of the season. He's behind C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles, and he's little more than a deep-league pick or a final-round flyer.

  • Posted: 7/26/2017 9:31pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) has a wrist injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and he's expected to miss up to six to eight weeks. It's unclear how he was injured and it's anticipated that Booker will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately for the Broncos, they have more depth at running back than most clubs, but this is still a tough blow, as Booker was potentially emerging after a so-so showing in his rookie season a year ago. With him possibly on track to miss regular season games, that will provide more work for the likes of C.J. Anderson and offseason addition Jamaal Charles.

  • Posted: 7/19/2017 9:03am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker had at least 18 carries in four of the first five games following C.J. Anderson's season-ending knee injury in late October. In those four games, he averaged 2.8, 3.2, 3.3 and 1.9 yards per carry. 'I think everybody's fatigued (late in the season). As a pro, you have to push through it. That's part of it ... But I feel more ready this time,' Booker said.

    Huddle Up: To be fair, Booker was less than a year removed from two knee surgeries and head coach Gary Kubiak's outside-zone running system may have not been the best fit for him. New offensive coordinator Mike McCoy intends to include more power-based concepts in his offense, the offensive line should be improved and Booker has pronounced himself fully healthy, so he should perform better in 2017. Consider him a RB5 with fairly significant upside on draft day.

  • Posted: 6/27/2017 2:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker performed well during offseason workouts, and the team believes Booker has the potential to become a solid receiver out of the backfield. Booker may receive work with the first-team offense during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Booker likely will be part of a committee at running back this season and could be a candidate to start if he plays well during the preseason. He posted 612 running yards and 265 receiving yards in 2016 and should see more touches. Owners can consider Booker as a No. 3 running back this season.

  • Posted: 5/22/2017 9:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. 'You need two or three guys that can carry the load,' Joseph said. 'It is no longer a one-guy position. I?m excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be.'

    Huddle Up: Anderson figures to lead the way throughout the campaign, but it looks like he may not get as much work as his fantasy owners will desire, especially since he's coming back from a significant injury. With Charles and Booker also in town, it looks like this will be a tricky situation to deal with in 2017.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 8:57pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker finished with five carries for a team-high 27 yards and six catches for 44 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos never established a ground game, and Booker delivered another unimpressive outing. He shouldn't be starting in the regular season finale.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 12:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker 'has to step up to the plate,' according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak added that a lot has been put on Booker's plate and that he believes in the rookie running back.

    Huddle Up: Booker hasn't been able to fully take advantage of his volume since C.J. Anderson was injured. He is averaging only 3.4 yards per carry and has yet to eclipse more than 85 rushing yards. Booker will be splitting time with Justin Forsett going forward, too, so don't view him as more than a flex at this point.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 7:04pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker rushed just three times for one yard in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans and he added two catches for 10 yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Booker had five total touches to nine touches for newcomer Justin Forsett, a player head coach Gary Kubiak trusts from their days together in Baltimore. That trust is bad news for the fantasy prospects of Booker going forward, unless of course he gets a hot hand early and Kubiak elects to ride him.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 1:46pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (ankle) ran for 35 yards on 18 carries and scored a touchdown in a 20-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Dec. 4.

    Huddle Up: The team would have preferred Booker to stay on the sidelines a little more, but an injury to RB Kapri Bibbs put the kibosh on that. Give Booker an extra week, barring injury, and his stats should rise. Booker didn't have much against the Jaguars, but he did well enough considering the injury.

  • Posted: 12/2/2016 3:48pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Booker has been a solid option for owners since he has taken over as the starter and should receive a solid amount of carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a terrific No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 5:35pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Booker continues to see a bulk of the carries for the Broncos, and he should be a quality RB2 in Week 13 against a Jacksonville defense that has allowed the fourth-most rushing touchdowns this season.

  • Posted: 11/30/2016 4:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Booker should continue to receive a majority of the carries for the Broncos and will see a few targets in the passing game. He has received 24 carries in each of the last two games but has not rushed for more than 79 yards in either game. Booker should be a decent No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 9:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker needs to 'make things happen' on his own in the run game and fight through 'arm tackles,' according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

    Huddle Up: Booker continues to see a bulk of the carries for Denver, and he is a RB2 in Week 12 against a Kansas City defense that has struggled against the run.
