    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 8:07pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Booker hasn't exactly seized the reins of the Denver backfield, but he is still a low-end RB2 candidate in Week 10 with the shaky New Orleans defense on tap.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 4:27pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Booker probably will remain the starting running back but may lose some carries to Kapri Bibbs moving forward. Booker has posted decent number over the last several weeks but did only have 22 yards in the last game. Booker can still be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option at this point.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 12:33pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker participated in 46-of-56 offensive snaps in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. However, head coach Gary Kubiak stated Kapri Bibbs has earned more work while meeting with reporters Monday, Nov. 7. In fact,'s Mike Klis is suggesting Bibbs, who played nine snaps, could see the ratio to change in Bibbs' favor in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: If we are to believe Klis here, Booker could go from a rookie poised to overtake a veteran who signed a four-year contract in the offseason (C.J. Anderson) about two weeks ago to falling behind an undrafted free agent who has spent two-plus years on the practice squad. Given the quality of the matchup this week, Bibbs could easily overtake Booker as the starter if Kubiak is willing to let one game determine his backfield depth chart.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 5:17pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Booker will be the main running back for the team this week and has posted solid numbers since C.J. Anderson was injury. Owners in all leagues should consider Booker a fine No. 2 running back.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 7:54pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Booker doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing Sunday's matchup with the Raiders. While he didn't live up to expectations last week in his first career start, Booker can still be locked in as an RB1 for his anticipated workload, not to mention the fact that he's scored in two straight contests. His ceiling is high.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 4:32pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Booker appears to be on track to play in Week 9, but owners can check on his status later in the week. He has scored a touchdown in each of the last two games and has at least 17 carries in both of those games. He should be a fine No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 11:24am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: It appears Booker may have a chance to play in Week 9, but owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week. Booker probably would receiver most of the carries if he is able to play and should be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 2:31pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) is undergoing more tests for his injured shoulder Monday, Oct. 31. There is optimism that he will be fine, however.

    Huddle Up: Booker should continue to be the Broncos' featured back as long as his fumbling does not persist. If the tests come back clean then Booker is a low-end RB1 consideration in a favorable matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 8:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) rushed 19 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he added five receptions for 30 yards on six targets. He left the game briefly due to a shoulder injury, but was able to return and finish up.

    Huddle Up: Booker did a pretty decent job in his first NFL start in place of the injured C.J. Anderson, living up to the expectations of a RB2 in most fantasy leagues. He should be even more productive against a poor Oakland defense in Week 9 on Sunday Night Football.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 1:26pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the team's Week 8 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Booker was expected to receive most of the carries with C.J. Anderson on the Reserve/Injured list, but the severity of his injury is not known at this point. Booker should continue to be a No. 2 running back if his injury is not serious.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 10:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker is expected to start in Week 8 against the San Diego Chargers with RB C.J. Anderson (knee) sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Booker posted 83 rushing yards with a touchdown on 17 carries against Houston Monday. He is worth scooping up off the waiver wire to use as an RB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams this weekend.

  • Posted: 10/25/2016 3:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker played 35 offensive snaps against the Houston Texans in Week 7. RB C.J. Anderson was in for 29 offensive snaps.

    Huddle Up: Booker and Anderson played really well as a committee Monday night, but Anderson actually produced more than Booker despite less playing time. Booker's emergence makes Anderson's value less predictable. That being said, Anderson is still in RB2 territory, while Booker should be viewed more as a low-end RB3 to high-end RB4 with more value in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 9:32pm ET

    Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker rushed 17 times for 83 yards with a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 24. Booker also had a four-yard reception on his only catch.

    Huddle Up: Booker is a solid understudy, and perhaps the future in Denver, but as long as C.J. Anderson is healthy then Booker should be treated as more of a RB3 heading into Week 8 against San Diego.

  • Posted: 10/11/2016 1:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker received 29 offensive snaps in Week 5 compared to 36 snaps for RB C.J. Anderson.

    Huddle Up: Booker was really involved in the passing game in Denver's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, perhaps to give rookie QB Paxton Lynch shorter and safer looks. Booker will play behind Anderson as long as Anderson is healthy, but the rookie running back is a nice waiver wire pickup heading into Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 9:50pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker had three carries for eight yards and lost a fumble and was not targeted in the passing game in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The early fumble probably didn't help his workload, but it appears Booker may not do much more than provide the occasional breather for C.J. Anderson. At this point he is merely a stash candidate in keeper leagues and a handcuff to Anderson.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 9:08am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker practiced as the backup running back behind RB C.J. Anderson Saturday, Aug. 13. According to Mike Klis of, the Broncos' plan may be for Anderson and Booker to be their top two running backs.

    Huddle Up: Booker was the third-string running back in Denver's first preseason game, but he may be working his way past Ronnie Hillman. Booker has more upside, and drafting him as an RB4 shouldn't be ruled out. Hillman is also an RB4 consideration, but Booker may continue to push his fantasy value in a downward direction.

  • Posted: 8/1/2016 8:07am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has shown the skills of a complete back, and running backs coach Eric Studesville said he would play Booker in a game 'right now.'

    Huddle Up: Booker is making a push to be surpass Ronnie Hillman as the backup to C.J. Anderson. He is worth a look as a low-end RB5 in PPR leagues, and he has tremendous upside in dynasty formats.
