RB - DEN
Week 3 Outlook
Royce Freeman rushed three times for 20 yards in the Broncos' 26-21 loss to the Steelers Sunday.
Freeman is not seeing enough touches to be fantasy relevant this season.
Royce Freeman ran once for zero yards and brought in his only target for 12 yards in the Broncos' 16-14 loss to the Titans Monday night.
Even with Phillip Lindsay (foot) missing the second half Monday, Freeman saw almost no work. He holds little value as the RB3 in Denver for fantasy.
Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post writes that he doesn't believe Royce Freeman's role as the Broncos' number-three RB is secure.
Freeman is well behind Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay on the team's depth chart entering training camp. The 2018 third-round pick hasn't been a disaster through two seasons by any means, but he also hasn't done much to truly stand out as an above-average back. We would still bet on Freeman making the team this season but it doesn't help that he doesn't contribute to special teams either.
Royce Freeman rushed twice for a loss of four yards and brought in his only target for eight yards in the Broncos' 16-15 win over the Raiders Sunday.
Freeman is clearly playing second fiddle to Phillip Lindsay and will enter next season as nothing more than a handcuff.
Royce Freeman rushed nine times for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' 27-17 win over the Lions Sunday. He brought in both of his targets for nine yards.
Freeman scored to save fantasy owners that were forced to start him Sunday. He enters next season with value primarily as Phillip Lindsay's handcuff.
