Royce Freeman already expected to get double-digit carries in Week 1

Denver Broncos rookie running back Royce Freeman has a lot of hype surrounding him heading into training camp.

The Royce Freeman hype is off the charts and Denver Broncos training camp hasn’t even started. Broncos insider, Mike Klis of 9News, was on Orange & Blue 760 on Friday and he wouldn’t be surprised if Royce Freeman ends up with double-digit carries in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks.

I love a good hype machine, but come on. Let’s see this guy have a good training camp first.

To be fair to Klis, Freeman was a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft that received plenty of high marks from draft analysts around the league when the Broncos selected him. He’s even been compared to a Kareem Hunt kind of talent.

It would please me to end to have Freeman be that kind of good. Here’s to hoping he is!
