Denver Broncos RB Jaleel McLaughlin rushed seven times for 72 yards in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears, while adding three grabs for 32 yards and a touchdown on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Javonte Williams went down with a hip injury after two rushing attempts and five total touches. It was McLaughlin, not Samaje Perine, stepping up to fill the void. If Williams is out for Week 5 against the New York Jets, the rookie could be worth scooping up in deeper leagues as a RB3 or flex option, and he might be a sneaky DFS option, too.

Denver Broncos RB Jaleel McLaughlin is "set to be counted on right from the start," according to Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post.
Huddle Up: The rookie has been generating buzz throughout camp and the preseason, and head coach Sean Payton has been willing to use running back committees in the past. McLaughlin probably needs an injury to either Javonte Williams or Samaje Perine to enter the fantasy conversation, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

Denver Broncos RB Jaleel McLaughlin "showed speed, vision and decisiveness in the no-pads portion of the offseason program," according to ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold.
Huddle Up: While Legwold notes that McLaughlin is undersized (5-foot-7, 187 pounds) and has yet to do anything with pads on, it is not every day that an undrafted free agent enters the league with over 8,000 yards rushing on his college resume (Youngstown State). If he continues to flash in training camp, he would give the Broncos a darting slasher - something Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine are not. He does not warrant consideration in redraft leagues, but he is one to monitor in deeper dynasty formats.
