The Broncos look like a share-the-load operation. So far in camp Phillip Lindsay, a Pro Bowl selection as a rookie last season, Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker have already taken plenty of practice snaps dispersed across the first- and second-team offenses. They already know, at least they are already preparing for the idea, their "touches" will be a moving target.
One thing that's for certain, Broncos coach Vic Fangio and offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello believe the run game should have a significant place in the Broncos' offense, even in a league that is more pass-happy than ever, the story said. Seems like a nightmare for fantasy owners. While Lindsay led the way last year, we've heard good things about Freeman during the offseason. We currently have Lindsay 24th on our RB list with Freeman at 42nd in PPR.
Lindsay, who exited the game after a carry in the third quarter, said he would try to play in Week 17 against the Chargers, even though the Broncos don’t have playoff implications on the line. Freeman would likely have a bigger role in Week 17 if the Broncos hold out Lindsay.
