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.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman ran five times for 11 yards and caught four passes for 13 yards on Sunday, Dec. 1, against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Freeman's role on offense has really dried up, and there's no compelling reason to have him on your roster unless Phillip Lindsay gets hurt.

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed for 20 yards on two carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Freeman's four touches were a season low this season, but he should be more involved in the offense next week. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but can also be benched if fantasy players have better options.

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.
