Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed eight times for 50 yards in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints and he did not have a catch or target.
Huddle Up: Freeman saw some extra work with the game out of hand in the second half. Normally his fantasy appeal is rather minimal. The Broncos travel to meet the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 but Freeman shouldn't be a part of your fantasy plans.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed for 26 yards on eight carries against the New England Patriots in Week 6. He also caught one pass for four yards.
Huddle Up: Freeman received a bigger role with Melvin Gordon out but was held in check. He should be avoided in all leagues against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed nine times for 28 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for nine yards in a 27-17 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Freeman had gone six straight games without a rushing touchdown, and he still hasn't had double-digit carries in a game since late October. He's a risky flex play, at best, in the finale, and his long-term value has to be questioned at this point.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed for 12 yards on five carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15. He also caught four passes for 14 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Broncos did not run much because of the inclement weather, so Freeman did not have a big role in the offense this week. He should have more success against the Detroit Lions next week and could be a flex option in some leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Freeman has received under 10 touches in each of the last four games and will be facing a solid Houston Texans defense this week. Fantasy players can bench Freeman if they have better options available.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ribs) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Freeman was limited Wednesday, but he now seems to be on track to play Sunday against the Houston Texans. He hasn't seen 10 or more carries in a game since Week 8, and he should be left on the bench in 12-team leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Freeman probably will be able to play this week, but fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He has received under 10 touches in each of the last four games and has been held out of the end zone during that span. He will be facing a good Houston Texans defense this week and can be avoided in some leagues.
