Royce Freeman Sees Season-High Nine Touches Sunday

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman served as the backup to Phillip Lindsay in the Week 6 win over the Patriots, as Melvin Gordon III was inactive with a non-COVID-19-related illness. Freeman had a season-high eight carries for 26 yards and caught his lone target for four yards in the 18-12 victory. It was nice that the 24-year-old saw a bit more work, but he still wasn't much of a factor in the game plan despite the team's lead back being out. Even with Gordon potentially being suspended by the NFL because of a DUI, Freeman seems destined for a small role as the second fiddle to Lindsay after his big game in Week 6. He'll have no standalone value heading into the Week 7 divisional matchup with the Chiefs.

Royce Freeman Should Benefit From Melvin Gordon III’s Absence

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman has reprised a minor role in the teams offense this season despite having combined for over 1,000 yards rushing over the past two years. Melvin Gordon III (illness) has been ruled out for Sundays game against New England, and while Phillip Lindsay is expected to the Broncos bell cow out of the backfield, Freeman could vulture some goalline rushes. Yet to carry the ball more than three times in a contest this season, Freeman holds little fantasy appeal Sunday, but an extended absence by Gordon (who was also arrested on DUI charges earlier in the week) could pave the way to fantasy relevance for Freeman down the line in 2020.

Royce Freeman Sees Five Touches In Week 4

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman carried the ball just three times for six yards and caught both of his targets for six yards in the passing game in the Thursday night win over the Jets. Phillip Lindsay (toe) sat out his third straight game, but he's close to returning and should be back in Week 5 against the Patriots, which means Freeman will go back to being an afterthought in this backfield. These last three games showed that Freeman will only become fantasy relevant for the Broncos if both Melvin Gordon III and Lindsay are out due to injuries. His five touches on Thursday night were a season high so far in 2020.
