Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman was non-existent in the team's loss to the Vikings in Week 11. The 2nd-year back has started to dip in production his last two games, a daunting sign for owners that were occasionally sneaking him into their flex spot. Freeman only had eight carries for 31 yards, alongside one reception for 14 yards. Things don't lighten up for the Oregon product, as the Broncos face a stout Buffalo Bills Defense next week on the road.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed eight times for 31 yards in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added one grab for 14 yards on his only target.
Fantasy Spin: As long as Phillip Lindsay is healthy the fantasy ceiling of Freeman is rather limited. Consider him more as a low-end RB3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills.
Denver Broncos Running back Royce Freeman struggled against the Browns in Week 9, finishing with just 15 yards on five carries in addition to a single reception for negative yardage. After accumulating a touchdown in each of his previous two games heading into the matchup with Cleveland, Freeman will look to get back on track against the Vikings. His ceiling is high, but his floor is equally low, especially with the continued timeshare with Phillip Lindsay, making him a risky option across the board in Week 11.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman had a quiet day on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, taking a backseat to teammate Phillip Lindsay. Freeman only managed to get five rushing attempts that he turned into an abysmal 15 yards. Even more disappointing was the fact he only had one reception during the game which he lost yardage on. This is a performance that Freeman can only hope to improve on moving forward after the team has a week off in Week 10.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed five times for 15 yards and lost a yard on his only catch in a 24-19 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 9.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman typically receives enough touches to be used as a flex option, but this game was a reminder that Phillip Lindsay is the superior fantasy option in the Denver backfield.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman had a switch in narrative last week in the Broncos loss to the Indianapolis Colts, as Freeman was not the feature back in the passing game as he usually is, but rather it was his teammate Phillip Lindsay. Freeman will look to get back on track in Week 9, and should see solid production with Brandon Allen starting his first game at QB meaning the Broncos will be relying heavily on the run and quick passes to, hopefully, Freeman out of the backfield. This gameplan against a poor Cleveland Browns Defense has the potential to create a good week for Freeman owners, who should consider him at flex spots in PPR settings for Week 9.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (shoulder) was favoring his shoulder after the game Sunday, Oct. 27.
Fantasy Spin: There's no word on the severity, but he finished the game and should be fine. Freeman reached the end zone this week and is a weekly flex debate.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed 12 times for 40 yards and a touchdown and caught one of two passes for five yards in a 15-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Freeman is the No. 2 option behind Phillip Lindsay, but he still routinely receives around 15 touches per game. There's enough volume to keep Freeman in the mix as a flex play.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman found the end zone for the second straight game, as he managed to score the lone touchdown for the Broncos against the Indianapolis Colts. Freeman saw a downtick in catches out of the backfield this week, but his touchdown alongside his 45 total yards was enough to give decent production for any owners that played him. The lack of catches out of the backfield will hopefully change moving forward, as Freeman has the opportunity to right the ship next week against a sub-par Cleveland Browns Defense.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman enters Week 8 with a daunting matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Freeman has been the top receiving back in Denver this year, outshining teammate Phillip Lindsay in that regard, and has started to find Flex volume in his role. This past week the Broncos moved wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers, and this could, in turn, lead to Freeman seeing some of Sanders' target share in the coming weeks. While Freeman clearly isn't a wide receiver, there isn't a solidified option to replace Sanders and undoubtedly some of that volume will trickle to Freeman. For this week, Freeman is a flex play in PPR settings due to his potential uptick in volume.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman managed to score a touchdown despite rushing for just 35 yards on 10 attempts during the loss to Kansas City. With the Chiefs Defense finally stepping up in this one, Freeman and backfield mate Phillip Lindsay were collectively held to just 71 yards on Thursday night. Both men should continue to split carries moving ahead, with the slight edge from a fantasy perspective going to Lindsay moving forward.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman 10 times for 35 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 32 yards in a 30-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.
Fantasy Spin: Phillip Lindsay had one more carry than Freeman, but Freeman scored Denver's lone touchdown and saw more work in the passing game. Lindsay has shown the higher ceiling overall, but Freeman has carved out a solid role and is a decent flex play.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman continues to carve out a significant role in the Broncos passing offense as the season progresses. This allows him to hold flex value in a PPR setting, as he is seeing between four and five receptions a week out of the backfield. Expect much of the same against Kansas City on Thursday night, which will allow for Freeman to sneak into flex spots this week.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman continues to find a bulk of his production in the receiving game during the 2019 season, defining a new role for him in the team's offense. In a Week 6 win against the Tennessee Titans, the former Oregon Duck tallied 76 all-purpose yards, with 42 of those yards coming on five catches out of the backfield. Freeman's continued volume in the passing game makes him an intriguing flex option in PPR leagues, as owners have a short timeline to decide if they are going to start him against Kansas City on Thursday night.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed 11 times for 34 yards and caught five passes for 42 yards in a 16-0 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Phillip Lindsay continues to be the top back for the Broncos, but Freeman receives enough work to be warrant consideration as a flex option. At worst, Freeman is a must-own handcuff for Lindsay owners.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman's value has started to head on the decline in recent weeks, as he continues to get outproduced by teammate Phillip Lindsay. Freeman had a rough showing last week fantasy-wise and faces a Tennessee Titans Defense that ranks ninth against opposing running backs. Freeman should be on benches in most leagues unless owners are desperate from injuries and bye weeks at flex.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman had a fairly stale week against the Los Angeles Chargers in a road contest for the Broncos. Freeman had an impressive 67 yards on 13 rushing attempts, averaging 4.7 per attempt but sadly those numbers don't do much for fantasy owners. The Oregon product also lacked in the passing game, an area he has typically seen success in this year, as he only caught two receptions for six yards. Freeman has no easy task to find production for owners next week as he lines up against a tough Tennessee Titans Defense.
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed 13 times for 61 yards and caught two passes for six yards in 20-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5.
Fantasy Spin: Although his backfield mate, Phillip Lindsay, has shown more upside, Freeman has been steady. He has topped 50 rushing yards in four of the five games, and he can be a flex option for fantasy owners.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman continues to fight and scrap for production in a Denver offense that has not supported the run game well to start the 2019 season. Freeman showed promise to owners in Week 4, as he received the bulk of the snaps out of the backfield, as well as the most targets out of the running back crew. Because of that, Freeman does hold some value for owners that are desperate for a flex in a PPR setting, as Freeman may be able to get some reps in a game that his team is likely to be playing from behind most of the time.
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman started the 2019 season with hopes of slowly taking teammate Phillip Lindsay's starting job. Unfortunately for Freeman, the opposite has progressed throughout the season and Lindsay is continuing to lead in offensive volume. Freeman had a disappointing performance this week, as he only had six carries for 16 yards and four receptions for 34 yards. The former Oregon Duck will look to improve things next week in a matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
