Broncos Ready to Make Royce Freeman the Primary Running Back in 2018?

Rookie running back Royce Freeman will be the Denver Broncos’ “primary back before too long” according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.

“Now, that might not mean 250 carries,” Legwold cautions, “but he’s going to get work and already blocks well enough to play on third down and in some of the open formations. And he’ll get red zone chances, too.” Freeman certainly caught the eye of fantasy players with 38 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener.

A third-round draft pick out of Oregon, Freeman is currently listed second on the depth chart to third-year back Devontae Booker but looked much better than Booker in the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings. The Broncos may employ the dreaded running-back-by-committee approach to begin the season but most observers except Freeman to assume control soon.
