DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Cleveland Browns
Even though Phillip Lindsay continues to lead Denver in rushing attempts per game, for the past two contests it’s been Royce Freeman who’s received the goal line carries and scored the team’s only touchdowns. Last week against the Colts, Freeman ran for 40 yards on 12 carries and the four-yard TD. He’s posted double-digit rushes in all but one game this season, averaging 68 total yards. Freeman and the Broncos ground attack could be in line for a good outing versus the fourth-worst run defense.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Indianapolis Colts
In the loss to the Chiefs last Thursday the Broncos ground game was limited to 71 yards by a porous run defense. Royce Freeman collected 35 of the rushing yards on 10 carries and managed to plunge into the end zone from a yard out for Denver’s lone TD and his first score of the season. With the 32 additional receiving yards, Freeman had a much better game than Phillip Lindsay. Through the first seven weeks, Lindsay has received 95 rushes compared to 76 for Freeman. Facing the No. 19 run defense on Sunday, consider Freeman an RB3/flex.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
It was Phillip Lindsay and not Royce Freeman who was given the ball near the goal line to score Denver’s lone TD in the shutout of the Titans last week. On the afternoon Freeman received 11 carries for 34 yards but was more effective in the passing attack, registering five receptions for 42 yards. He continues to receive around 15 touches for over 70 total yards per outing; however, it’s been Lindsay posting the TDs. Freeman and the Broncos ground game have a good matchup at home versus a Kansas City run defense that is third to last. Even so, he remains an RB3/flex.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Tennessee Titans
Phillip Lindsay rushed for over 100 yards last Sunday against the Chargers, while Royce Freeman turned his 13 carries into 61 yards, his second-highest total of the season. The RBs continue to split carries, with Freeman averaging 14 touches for 70 total yards per game but he’s yet to find the end zone. Back at home this week versus a Titans defense that yields 105 rushing yards per game, Freeman should be used as an RB3/flex start.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Los Angeles Chargers
In the last-second loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, Royce Freeman finished with only six rushes and four receptions. He totaled 50 yards, but the Broncos’ defense couldn’t stop the Jags ground game, which limited how much the offense was on the field. Through a quarter of the season, Freeman is averaging 71 yards per contest, although he’s yet to find the end zone. Los Angeles D is yielding around 100 yards on the ground, so consider Freeman an RB3/flex start.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
After totaling over 100 yards in Week 2, Royce Freeman had another decent outing last Sunday against the Packers. He finished with 63 yards on the ground and 10 receiving yards on 19 total touches. While Freeman had some red zone carries, Phillip Lindsay scored the Broncos first two rushing touchdowns of the season. The RBs will continue to split touches and will be facing a Jacksonville defense that is middle-of-the-road at stopping the run. Freeman remains an RB3/flex option.

DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Green Bay Packers
In the heartbreaking loss to Chicago last week, Royce Freeman totaled 102 yards on 16 touches. He continues to share the backfield with Phillip Lindsay but has been the better player the first two weeks, leading the team in rush yards during both contests. Unfortunately, neither player has found the end zone yet in the Broncos anemic offense and this Sunday doesn’t look like things will be much better, facing what has been a good Packers defense. Freeman is an RB3/flex play on the road.
