Devontae Booker’s recent body of work suggests he should lead the Broncos running back by committee. As Charles Kleinheksel mentioned in the Week 12 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, he set season highs with 14 rushing attempts and five receptions. Booker accumulated a total of 98 yards on 19 touches, but C.J. Anderson scored a touchdown. The Broncos fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy after losing its sixth consecutive game. Did you know this was the seventh time the Broncos offense failed to score at least 20 points this season? The offense ranks 18th in total offense and 24th in scoring with 18.3 points per game. The Browns are the only team that’s tossed more interceptions than the Broncos’ 14 picks (combined number from Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler). McCoy will be replaced by Bill Musgrave who was the Raiders offensive coordinator in 2015 and 2016 prior to joining the Broncos staff this season as a quarterbacks coach. Here are four reasons I like Booker to seize control of the Broncos backfield for the rest of the season.
