Broncos have reached agreement with former Viking RB Mike Boone, per source.
Mike Boone spent three seasons with Denver's GM George Paton in Minnesota. He'll provide insurance behind Melvin Gordon if Philip Lindsay signs elsewhere, and even if Lindsay stays, Boone could be worth a late-round stab in some fantasy formats.
MIN RB Mike Boone - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Detroit
With Dalvin Cook expected to miss this week’s game, Boone should expect more work as part of an RBBC with Alexander Mattison and Ameer Abdullah. Boone hasn’t done much this season, which is to be expected with Cook handling almost all the backfield touches. However, Boone did score a touchdown in last week’s contest against the Saints, so his productivity will be linked to how often he succeeds in the red zone. Keep Boone tapped as a touchdown-dependent RB3 in this one.
