Week 3: at Baltimore Ravens

All RB vs BAL

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Broncos have certainly found the explosive element they so sorely missed last year. With underwhelming quarterbacks under center, the team has sought to establish a ball-control running attack, but one capable of working into the second and third levels. In rookies Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, they've found it. Lindsay is the quintessential playmaker, ripping off chunk runs to the tune of 178 yards on 29 rushes through 2 weeks. And Freeman has been used more to grind, though he's also flashed second-level ability despite sporadic work as the ball-control guy. The Broncos are using a "hot hand" approach with them, riding each in different situations, but it's great that both have answered the bell. With a dominant-looking line in front of them - even washout Billy Turner has looked great subbing at right tackle - the horizon is bright for both Lindsay and Freeman. There's still very little ground production allowed by this Ravens defense. Spearheaded by down lineman extraordinaire Brandon Williams and an underrated group of pursuing linebackers and safeties, the Ravens routinely stifle opposing runners. In fact, dating back to Week 8 of last year (when Williams returned full-strength from an injury), only Cincinnati's Joe Mixon (twice) has topped 72 yards against them - and no NFL team has allowed fewer raw yards on the ground. Here in the short term, the unit will have to pull together to replace tackle-fiend linebacker C.J. Mosley, who looks week-to-week. But Mosley isn't exactly a make-or-break talent; much of the Ravens' dominance comes from Williams and the nose tackles occupying blockers for the second level.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs OAK (3 / 17 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Booker got some snaps in third down situations and worked as the back in the two minute offense at the end of the 1st half. He had three carries on the day with a long of 11 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game despite his third down work.

2018 Week 1 vs SEA (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Booker was overshadowed by the two rookie backs and did not have much of a role in week 1. He worked some passing downs early and was featured at the end of the first half as the Broncos fielded their two minute offense, catching a screen pass for a short gain. Booker picked up one other reception late in the 4th as Keenum dumped it off to him under duress. He was outsnapped by both rookie RB's and was not as effective a receiver as Lindsay.
