Scouting report

HOU RB Royce Freeman - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs Jaguars

Royce Freeman had himself a day in the passing game last week against the Seahawks, catching six passes for 51 yards on eight targets. It will be interesting to see if that trend continues. It's possible, as the backfield will basically be just Freeman and David Johnson with Rex Burkhead unavailable because of a hip injury. That said, it's a huge gamble as we reach the playoffs. Some of Freeman's work came in garbage time as Seattle pulled away in the fourth quarter.

HOU RB Royce Freeman - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs Seahawks

Royce Freeman saw his first action for the Texans last week against the Colts and had 21 yards on four carries. That was with David Johnson out of action. With Johnson possibly returning this week, will Freeman see much action? Too much of a gamble at this stage of the game, but at least he's back seeing work.

CAR RB Royce Freeman - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. New England Patriots

Royce Freeman had six carries and a target last week against the Panthers, finishing with 25 yards. It was good to see him get six carries, but not really within the context of the game. Ameer Abdullah saw eight carries and Chuba Hubbard still led the way with 24. Freeman doesn’t appear to have a strong enough role in this offense to warrant fantasy consideration. Leave him on waivers.

CAR RB Royce Freeman - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Atlanta Falcons

Royce Freeman had three carries and one reception for a total of 19 yards last week against the Giants. Chuba Hubbard is getting the bulk of the work in Carolina while Christian McCaffrey is hurt, and there’s no reason to expect that to change. He should remain on waivers.

CAR RB Royce Freeman - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Giants

Royce Freeman has had some spot-duty work since Christian McCaffrey went down, but he only had one carry for three yards last week and has clearly taken a backseat to Chuba Hubbard. Leave him on waivers.

CAR RB Royce Freeman - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Dallas Cowboys

Royce Freeman played a little against the Texans after Christian McCaffrey got hurt, winding up with one catch and five carries for 25 yards. While we fully expect Chuba Hubbard to get the bulk of the work in McCaffrey’s absence, fantasy managers should add Freeman to their rosters if they have the roster space. Freeman got a little work last week, and if Hubbard falters, he could get yanked quickly. Don’t start him this week, but keep an eye on the situation.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Oakland Raiders
While Phillip Lindsay continues to receive the majority of Denver’s rushes, Royce Freeman finished last Sunday’s game with nine carries for 28 yards and his fourth score of the season – second in the past three weeks. Freeman has reached 500 yards on the ground in ’19 and is a contributor in the passing attack with 42 receptions. Back in September against the Raiders he led the Broncos with 56 rushing yards but should only be started in the rematch if you’re low on options.
