  Broncos | Devontae Booker to have a role    Thu Dec 27, 09:43 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker will serve as the backup running back but will see a 'bunch of runs' against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker tops 100 yards    Mon Oct 29, 02:06 AM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker carried the ball nine times for 78 yards and added four receptions for 23 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker leaned on in passing game    Mon Sep 24, 09:42 AM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker had seven of his 10 touches after the team fell behind by 13 points in the third quarter as the team trusts him in the passing game as a blocker and receiver. He had 26 snaps on offense overall for 38 percent of the offense.

Footballguys view: The only reason we saw more from Booker is because Phillip Lindsay was ejected from the game for throwing a punch. Booker is likely to be used as the third back behind Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Even though Booker is second on the depth chart (behind Freeman), the team doesn't seem to want to use him much in the gameplan.

  Broncos | Denver in no rush to name starting RB    Wed Aug 29, 12:29 PM

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."

Footballguys view: Most Fantasy GMs expect Freeman to be the lead back for the Broncos in 2018. Freeman has looked like one of the best (if not the best) rookie running back in the preseason. He's got three touchdowns in three preseason games and has the skill set to be a bellcow back. Booker is a perimeter player who could work as a receiving back or on toss plays outside the tackles.

  Broncos | Denver RB competition ongoing    Sun Aug 19, 12:55 AM

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

Footballguys view: Joseph is saying the right things, but Freeman is decisively better and if the coaching staff is rational and Freeman stays healthy, he'll lead the team in running back touches this year by a good margin.

  Broncos | Denver to use two RBs with starters    Thu Aug 9, 05:15 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Freeman is the guy we're expecting to be the lead back, but the two will still probably split carries for at least the beginning of the season. He's tracking as the 27th RB off the board right now, and that's a safe spot. He can easily outproduce that, but barring injury, we don't see him producing less right now.

  Broncos | RB job wide open in Denver    Sun Jul 29, 03:19 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: Lindsay is drawing a lot of praise as a receiver, but he has to keep the momentum going when the intensity turns up later this summer. This isn't going to be one of the most productive backfields in the league and will include 2-3 backs every week, but all of the Broncos backs are modestly priced when looking at their range of outcomes. They have a place in draft plans.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker to open season as starter?    Sun Jul 22, 01:45 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Booker should be the favorite to start Week 1 with his experience in the offense, but Freeman has more to offer as an inside runner and is capable in all aspects of a running back's job. Freeman's higher ceiling justifies his earlier ADP, but maybe not the large gap. Booker should be a very cheap early season flex as long as his ADP doesn't trend up.

  Broncos | Steady role for Royce Freeman?    Sat May 12, 09:29 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Notice how Klis is reporting a '1B' situation. That's accurate at this time as Booker should be the lead back for the Broncos to begin training camp. However, we think Freeman is just a better talent and could overtake Booker for the lead job. We'll watch this unfold in camp as the Broncos look to replace former 1,000 yard rusher C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker to remain top RB?    Fri Apr 27, 09:43 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Booker hasn't caught the confidence of the staff completely and Freeman does so much right, he really could have a big role early on.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker alone at the top    Mon Apr 16, 10:58 AM

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

Footballguys view: Booker may not be there for long. Expect the Broncos to select a running back in the 2018 NFL draft, perhaps in the first round at no.5 overall if Saquon Barkley (Penn State) is there.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker the lead back?    Sat Feb 17, 11:00 PM

The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.

Footballguys view: The Broncos coaching staff likes Booker. Now it's time to see if he can play at a high level. Booker is swift and tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. However, he is often banged up and has only averaged a measly 3.6 yards per carry through two seasons in the NFL. With this great RB class in the 2018 NFL draft, we think the Broncos would be wise to add a rookie with a premium pick to push or unseat Booker as the top back.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker disappears    Sun Dec 3, 09:18 PM

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.

Footballguys view: It appeared the Broncos backfield was trending towards Booker in recent weeks, but this week the team went back to CJ Anderson. No Broncos back can be trusted going forward.

  Broncos | More carries for Devontae Booker?    Fri Nov 3, 11:15 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: All fantasy owners need to take note here. Booker may be on some waiver wires out there, and he needs to be stashed on your bench if possible. The Broncos really like Booker and had plans for him to be the starting back before he injured his wrist in June. As Booker gets more touches..and perhaps even starts for the Broncos...it will decrease the role for C.J. Anderson. Using more Booker could also really impact the touches for backup Jamaal Charles.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker has his best game of '17    Mon Oct 30, 11:53 PM

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.

Footballguys view: It's interesting to note that during the broadcast they said Booker would have been the lead back had he not been banged up before training camp. Fantasy owners need to see this Broncos team as a full fledged RBBC with three backs.

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.

Footballguys view: Booker has been practicing for about three weeks, but he has yet to make his season debut. He missed all of training camp and the preseason due to this injury, and when he returns Booker could get a series or two in order to spell starter C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker listed as limited    Thu Sep 14, 06:19 PM

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

Footballguys view: Booker is buried behind Jamaal Charles and CJ Anderson, so he won't get much run unless one of them gets hurt. However in terms of depth chart movement this is worth watching.

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.

Footballguys view: Booker is getting back into shape and participated in the team's 'jog through' practice on Wednesday. He may be back in Week 3. His return impacts the roles of C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker's work is limited    Wed Sep 13, 05:36 PM

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

Footballguys view: Booker isn't going to play in Week 2 per head coach Vance Joseph. However, he did participate in the team's 'jog through' on Wednesday. Booker will return in the near future, and that should lower the touches for guys like C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles. Anderson is the bell cow for now, but he's on pace for over 300 carries and he's never had 200 carries during a season in his career. The team is likely to move to RBBC when Booker is at full strength.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker could practice soon    Tue Sep 5, 05:02 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Booker was always pegged for a return in Week 2 or Week 3 and it looks like he's on track. When healthy, Booker will push for snaps in the backfield with starter C.J. Anderson and change-of-pace back Jamaal Charles. There's not much there for him unless Anderson gets hurt (again). Keep Booker on your waiver wire speed dial.

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.

Footballguys view: Booker is coming back to a somewhat crowded backfield. C.J. Anderson is the starter and behind him we could see Jamaal Charles or rookie DeAngelo Henderson mixed in as the change-of-pace back. Unless Anderson gets banged up (again), we don't see much of a role for Booker.

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson served as the backup to RB C.J. Anderson during training camp Thursday, July 27, with RB Devontae Booker (wrist) and RB Jamaal Charles not practicing.

Footballguys view: Sixth-rounder De'Angelo Henderson will push Thompson for a roster spot and he should get a long look in preseason games with Booker out and Charles getting the veteran treatment.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker to have surgery Friday    Thu Jul 27, 03:20 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Expect CJ Anderson's ADP to rise from 23rd back and 59 overall, though how much Jamaal Charles may impact it is still a question mark. That said, Anderson is likely to be the lead back and carry a full load until Booker gets back, at the very least.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker to have surgery    Thu Jul 27, 11:04 AM

Updating an earlier report, Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) will have surgery Friday, July 28, and will miss at least six weeks. He could be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Booker was supposed to compete with C.J. Anderson for the starting job in Denver. Now he'll show up-- maybe in Week 1, maybe not--and find Anderson as the lead back. Booker might end up fighting with Jamaal Charles for the number two spot. Anderson has tracked as the 23 running back off the board in early drafts, with an overall ADP of 59, but you can expect that to zip up, fast, over the next few weeks.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker has wrist fracture    Thu Jul 27, 09:53 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Man, that's just bad. This is why athletes have to immediately check in with a trainer or medical professional when they feel pain, kids. Because he likely took an injury which might have slowed him down for a couple weeks and made it bad enough to miss potentially 6 weeks. Booker was going to compete with C.J. Anderson for the starting job in Denver, but with him missing training camp, that's not happening. Write Anderson in as the lead back, with Jamaal Charles behind him to be brought along slowly. Don't be shocked if rookie DeAngelo Henderson plays well too.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker injured, out several weeks    Thu Jul 27, 12:31 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Booker was set to compete with C.J. Anderson for the starting job in Denver. Now he'll miss all of training camp and perhaps even some time into the regular season. Anderson is the lead back and veteran Jamaal Charles (fully cleared to practice) will be brought along slowly. Watch for rookie DeAngelo Henderson here too...a player we like in dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker more prepared in 2017    Wed Jul 19, 12:03 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Don't sleep on Devontae Booker. He was still coming back last year from two surgeries to repair his meniscus after his college days at Utah. That and..oh yeah, he's a bad zone runner. In the power/gap system implemented by new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Booker has looked much more comfortable this offseason. With Anderson's history of getting banged up, Booker needs to at least be on your waiver wire speed dial if not added late as a lottery ticket pick.

  Broncos | DEN happy with Devontae Booker's progress    Tue Jun 27, 05:23 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are sleeping on Booker and they shouldn't. Get him now in dynasty leagues on the cheap. He was a bad fit in the zone-blocking system under Gary Kubiak. He looks like a much better fit in the power/gap system under Mike McCoy. He's behind C.J. Anderson on the depth chart, but this may be Anderson's last year in Denver...plus he's got a history of getting banged up. Booker could play an important role for fantasy owners if opportunity arises for him this season.

  Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17    Tue May 23, 12:36 AM

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.'

Footballguys view: This is not news. The Broncos don't have a lead back as Anderson hasn't been able to stay healthy for a full 16 games. They'll use Charles (if healthy) as a change-of-pace back behind Anderson. Booker will be used as a spot runner and potential starter if Anderson is injured again. Anderson has the most fantasy value, and his current ADP is RB17 (4.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Open competition at RB in Denver    Fri May 12, 03:14 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Footballguys view: Anderson has to be considered the frontrunner at this time. Charles has not been himself over the last two years, and he might be best suited as a change-of-pace back. Booker did struggle as a rookie but he led the team in rushing last year, and he was the Broncos third-leading receiver in 2016. We'll see this unfold in training camp.

Denver Broncos RB Justin Forsett will be active for the team's Week 14 game and will share snaps with RB Devontae Booker, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: There's no need to learn the system as Forsett has his best season under Kubiak in 2014 with the Baltimore Ravens. He can step into a change-of-pace role for the Broncos on Sunday against the Titans. Forsett's workload will be similar to the one RB Kapri Bibbs (ankle) received before his injury.

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.

Footballguys view: Booker was actually outplayed by Kapri Bibbs and his touchdown came on a drive that Bibbs powered with multiple good runs, but Bibbs left with an ankle injury. The inefficient Booker should be a low RB2 start again next week at Tennessee.
