Round Four: RB Devontae Booker

Grade: B

Booker didn’t make the greatest first impression fumbling on his first career carry. However, Booker has settled in an averaged 4.3 yards per carry. Through the first six weeks of the season Booker received 34 carries, but over the last two weeks he has seen a bigger role getting 36 carries.

With running back C.J. Anderson on the injured reserve Booker will continue to be the guy in the backfield. Since being rewarded with more carries Booker has managed two find the endzone for his first touchdowns of his career. He has displayed good vision in finding the hole, but needs to show the explosion as he currently has zero runs over 20 yards.

Booker will see the majority of the carries for the remainder of the season and if all goes well should see a season that ends around 1,000 yards.
