    Denver Broncos RBs Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker are the two top candidates to start, but head coach Vance Joseph isn't placing an emphasis on declaring a starter for the Sept. 9 season opener against the Seattle Seahawks. 'It's not a focus of mine right now because it's going to take 3-4 guys (to produce),' Joseph said Tuesday, Aug. 28. “If we run a power play against Seattle on first-and-10, it's probably going to be Royce (starting). If we go empty and throw a quick pass, it may be 'Book' (starting). Who the lead guy is doesn't really matter.”

    Huddle Up: Freeman, the rookie third-round pick, has rushed for a TD in all three of the Broncos' preseason games and owns a current fantasy ADP of 56.73 -- a full 84 spots higher than Booker's 141.22. But while Freeman seemingly is in line to garner the most rushing attempts and goal-line work, don't reach too high for him in fantasy drafts as Booker and impressive rookie free-agent Phillip Lindsay will likely be regularly involved as well, particularly on passing downs.

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman and RB Devontae Booker are still in a competition, head coach Vance Joseph said Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Both players saw action with the starters in the second preseason game, but Freeman picked up the touchdown. If that trend continues, Freeman will be the stronger option, even if carries are split somewhat evenly.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 2:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker and RB Royce Freeman will split snaps with the first-team offense during the first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Booker and Freeman are competing for the starting job and likely will continue to split snaps with the starters until the team names a winner. The team probably will use a committee regardless of who wins the competition, so both running backs will have fantasy value.

  • Posted: 7/29/2018 12:19pm ET

    Denver Broncos RBs Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, De'Angelo Henderson and Phillip Lindsay all received first-team reps Sunday, July 29, prompting Lindsay H. Jones of USA TODAY Sports to say the 'running back job is totally open.'

    Huddle Up: This has been a familiar refrain throughout the spring and summer, although 9News' Mike Klis has emphasized Booker figures to be the lead back early on due to a 'good command' of the offensive playbook. Head coach Vance Joseph has repeatedly said he expects two or three backs will handle the load, so this has all the makings of being a committee backfield for most - if not all - of the 2018 season.

  • Posted: 7/22/2018 10:45am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has 'good command' of the offensive playbook and become a competent pass protector, according to Mike Klis of 9News, who added Booker is expected to start the season opener over Royce Freeman against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 9.

    Huddle Up: This news figures to sink the current fifth-round ADP of Freeman and spike the 12th-round ADP of Booker temporarily at the very least. Denver head coach Vance Joseph has already stated he plans on utilizing two and possibly three backs all season long, so this has all the makings of being a 'hot-hand' backfield. Both Booker and Freeman need to be viewed as high-upside RB3s for the time being.

  • Posted: 5/12/2018 6:29pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will have a chance to become a '1B' back to RB Devontae Booker, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com.

    Huddle Up: Devontae Booker hasn't exactly stood out when given playing time in the past, and it sounds like Freeman will have the opportunity to earn a meaningful amount of touches. Consider him an upside RB5 for now.

  • Posted: 4/27/2018 6:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will likely compete with RB Devontae Booker for the starting role, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com, but Klis expects Booker to open the season as the starter.

    Huddle Up: Booker has battled injuries and has shown little explosiveness when on the field. Even if he does head into Week 1 as the starter, he looks like a RB3.

  • Posted: 4/16/2018 7:58am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker is atop the depth chart after the release of RB C.J. Anderson Monday, April 16.

    Huddle Up: This is subject to change as it's possible the team could draft Saquon Barkley if he makes it to No. 5. Booker has rushed for a paltry 3.6 yards per carry in 253 career rushes. If he's in position for a big workload, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 7:46pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed eight times for 47 yards and caught five passes for 24 yards in a 27-11 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Booker flashes occasional potential, but he remains a dynasty league stash for now.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:18pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed two times for eight yards and failed to catch his only target in a 35-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: After it appeared he was closing the gap with starter C.J. Anderson, Booker has barely touched the ball the last two weeks. He is no more than an insurance policy for Anderson right now.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 7:25pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards in a 21-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Booker and C.J. Anderson continue to split carries almost evenly, and neither back is a great fantasy play. If you have to roll the dice on one, a slight edge goes to Booker because of his involvement in the passing game.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 8:31pm ET

    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.
