    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker is atop the depth chart after the release of RB C.J. Anderson Monday, April 16.

    Huddle Up: This is subject to change as it's possible the team could draft Saquon Barkley if he makes it to No. 5. Booker has rushed for a paltry 3.6 yards per carry in 253 career rushes. If he's in position for a big workload, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed eight times for 47 yards and caught five passes for 24 yards in a 27-11 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Booker flashes occasional potential, but he remains a dynasty league stash for now.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:18pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed two times for eight yards and failed to catch his only target in a 35-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: After it appeared he was closing the gap with starter C.J. Anderson, Booker has barely touched the ball the last two weeks. He is no more than an insurance policy for Anderson right now.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 7:25pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards in a 21-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Booker and C.J. Anderson continue to split carries almost evenly, and neither back is a great fantasy play. If you have to roll the dice on one, a slight edge goes to Booker because of his involvement in the passing game.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 8:31pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed 14 times for 44 yards and caught five passes for 54 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Booker had his best game of the season, and he had more touches than C.J. Anderson. Expect a committee approach to continue in Denver, but Booker looks like a viable flex play in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 8:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker has made the most of his limited touches, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'He's a young guy with strong, fresh legs,' Joseph said. 'He has great ball skills. As we go along here, he should get more opportunities.'

    Huddle Up: Booker isn't seeing enough touches to be considered a fantasy starter, but he is worth stashing in deeper leagues and keeper formats.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 8:53pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed for a season-high 40 yards on six carries and scored his first touchdown of the year in the team's Week 8 loss Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He also had three receptions for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Even with Denver losing decisively for most of this game, Booker was still able to chip in a solid performance that easily registers as his best of the campaign. Unfortunately for the second-year man out of Utah, C.J. Anderson is still around, meaning Booker's ceiling will always be severely capped. He's worth stashing on most rosters, however, and could be a useful option down the road.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 5:16am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker caught four of six passes for 78 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Booker may be a flex option going forward, as he flew under the radar screen in Sunday's loss. Booker hasn't had a role in the running game, but performances like this will keep him in Trevor Siemian's eye for future games.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 7:42am ET

    There is 'no chance' of the Denver Broncos trading RB Devontae Booker, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Booker doesn't appear to have a well-defined role in the Denver offense at the moment, with Jamaal Charles doing an impressive job as the backup to C.J. Anderson. He isn't worth stashing outside of keeper and dynasty leagues with deep rosters.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 9:14pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders will be determined Sunday, Oct. 1, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: With the emergence of Jamaal Charles as an effective backup to C.J. Anderson, Booker's role in the offense is murky at this point. Outside of keeper leagues, he doesn't need to be owned.

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders will be determined Sunday, Oct. 1, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: With the emergence of Jamaal Charles as an effective backup to C.J. Anderson, Booker's role in the offense is murky at this point. Outside of keeper leagues, he doesn't need to be owned.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 5:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker probably will need to practice this week if he wants a chance to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He probably would receive limited touches if he plays in Week 3 and can be avoided in most leagues if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 3:19pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Booker is expected to miss Week 2 but could return in the near future. He has a chance to become the No. 2 running back when he returns and should have some value in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 5:47pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) is not expected to play in Week 2 even though he was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Booker is probably a week or two away from returning, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Jamaal Charles should continue to serve as the No. 2 running back for now but should not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 2:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: With Booker absent for Week 1 it was Jamaal Charles seeing 10 touches in his stead behind the dominant C.J. Anderson. It's uncertain if Booker will go in Week 2, but if he does it will eat into the touches for Charles. When active, do not expect Booker to be thrust into a big role, however, as long as C.J. Anderson is running hard. A reasonable estimate is that Booker tops out at 10-12 touches upon his initial return.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 2:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker's (wrist) X-rays on his injured wrist looked good and he may practice as soon as this week or next week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: When Booker does return, he'll need to fend off Jamaal Charles, DeAngelo Henderson and possibly Jonathan Williams for playing time, not to mention starter C.J. Anderson. He can be avoided in traditional leagues as long as Anderson is healthy.

  • Posted: 8/23/2017 1:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 23. He is hoping to be back in action by Week 3 of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Denver's backfield depth is hazy after C.J. Anderson. Rookie De'Angelo Henderson has flashed in the preseason, but he'll have to hold off Booker and Jamaal Charles, if Charles makes the team, for significant playing time.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 12:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) will have surgery to fix his fractured wrist Friday, July 28. His recovery time is expected to be six weeks.

    Huddle Up: Jamaal Charles and rookie De'Angelo Henderson will have to pick up the slack behind C.J. Anderson for the time being. The backfield will take shape in the preseason, but Booker should reprise his backup role once he returns.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 6:53am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) has a fractured wrist that he has been lifting with for weeks, according to a source. He aggravated it in training.

    Huddle Up: Booker is expected to miss six to eight weeks, which will likely cut into the first few weeks of the season. He's behind C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles, and he's little more than a deep-league pick or a final-round flyer.

  • Posted: 7/26/2017 9:31pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist) has a wrist injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and he's expected to miss up to six to eight weeks. It's unclear how he was injured and it's anticipated that Booker will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately for the Broncos, they have more depth at running back than most clubs, but this is still a tough blow, as Booker was potentially emerging after a so-so showing in his rookie season a year ago. With him possibly on track to miss regular season games, that will provide more work for the likes of C.J. Anderson and offseason addition Jamaal Charles.

  • Posted: 7/19/2017 9:03am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker had at least 18 carries in four of the first five games following C.J. Anderson's season-ending knee injury in late October. In those four games, he averaged 2.8, 3.2, 3.3 and 1.9 yards per carry. 'I think everybody's fatigued (late in the season). As a pro, you have to push through it. That's part of it ... But I feel more ready this time,' Booker said.

    Huddle Up: To be fair, Booker was less than a year removed from two knee surgeries and head coach Gary Kubiak's outside-zone running system may have not been the best fit for him. New offensive coordinator Mike McCoy intends to include more power-based concepts in his offense, the offensive line should be improved and Booker has pronounced himself fully healthy, so he should perform better in 2017. Consider him a RB5 with fairly significant upside on draft day.

  • Posted: 6/27/2017 2:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker performed well during offseason workouts, and the team believes Booker has the potential to become a solid receiver out of the backfield. Booker may receive work with the first-team offense during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Booker likely will be part of a committee at running back this season and could be a candidate to start if he plays well during the preseason. He posted 612 running yards and 265 receiving yards in 2016 and should see more touches. Owners can consider Booker as a No. 3 running back this season.

  • Posted: 5/22/2017 9:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. 'You need two or three guys that can carry the load,' Joseph said. 'It is no longer a one-guy position. I?m excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be.'

    Huddle Up: Anderson figures to lead the way throughout the campaign, but it looks like he may not get as much work as his fantasy owners will desire, especially since he's coming back from a significant injury. With Charles and Booker also in town, it looks like this will be a tricky situation to deal with in 2017.
