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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 RB Royce Freeman (shoulder) was favoring his shoulder after the game Sunday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 RB Royce Freeman (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Freeman receives a solid amount of touches even though he does not start. He will be facing a solid Jacksonville Jaguars defense but can still be a flex option for fantasy players.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (shoulder) remained limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Freeman and Phillip Lindsay have split work so far this season and have alternated top performances out of the Broncos' backfield. Neither will be able to properly reward fantasy managers when both are healthy, but they're still able to provide adequate returns from the FLEX spot.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Freeman suffered the injury during the Week 3 game but was able to return to the game despite the injury. He should receive a solid amount of touches in Week 4 and could be a flex option in some leagues.
