Royce Freeman (hip) is active Sunday against the Chargers

Royce Freeman (hip) is active for Week 16's matchup against the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Freeman makes for an intriguing flex play with Phillip Lindsay on IR. He should see a decent chunk of snaps in relief of Melvin Gordon III. Admittedly a risky start, he should do in a pinch and makes for a solid DFS target.

Royce Freeman leads Broncos with 50 rushing yards in Week 12

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman ran for 50 yards on eight carries in the Broncos' 31-3 blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Freeman gained almost half of his yardage on a 23-yard play and was the most effective rusher for the Broncos. He was the emergency QB on Sunday but could see his role evolve in the offense with Phillip Lindsay exiting with a knee injury. Freeman may be a streaming option for desperate fantasy managers but will not be recommended in Week 13 when the Broncos face the Chiefs.

Royce Freeman could start in Week 12 vs. Saints as Broncos’ emergency QB

Broncos RB Royce Freeman could be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos in Week 12 when they take on the New Orleans Saints. Jeff Driskel, Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles are all ineligible to play due to COVID-19 policies.

Fantasy Impact

Freeman is the emergency QB for the Broncos, so he was thought of as the first choice to start in Week 12, but it looks like it’ll be WR Kendall Hinton, a former QB at Wake Forest and current practice squad player.

Royce Freeman a non-factor in Denver's win over New England

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman received eight carries and ran for 26 yards and caught one pass for four yards in an 18-12 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy managers might have expected Freeman to get more work on Sunday, considering Melvin Gordon III did not play and Phillip Lindsay made his return from a three-game absence. That didn't happen as Freeman played second fiddle to Lindsay, who outpaced him in carries 23:8. Freeman saw time as the passing-down back, but with Lock being highly inaccurate, he didn't get much of an opportunity to produce. Freeman is deep league handcuff as he'll need a Lindsay or Gordon to miss games to make him worthy of a pickup in 10-12 redraft leagues.

Royce Freeman has three carries Thursday night for Denver

Broncos RB Royce Freeman had three carries and two receptions for a total of 12 yards in Thursday night's win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

With Phillip Lindsay returning from a turf toe injury, Freeman should not be rostered at this time.
