Bold Predictions: Denver Broncos v. Oakland Raiders
Running Game: Devontae Booker – 110 yards rushing 2 TDs/Andy Janovich 40 yards receiving and a TD
The loss of CJ Anderson is a blow to the team as a whole, but Devontae Booker continues to bring the lumber on every run he finishes. Booker is a three-down future back in the Denver Broncos offense. This is not the first time a back of his skill set is excelling in a Gary Kubiak offense. Problem needs to be creative on third and short. Enter, Andy Janovich.
Kubiak made a clever toss play on third and one showing trust in their young back to dance his way to a first down. Booker proved the boom after the end and this must stay as such against the Oakland Raiders. If the running game does not deviate from the plan, but keeps it creative at times the Broncos will see results early and often on Sunday night.
Janovich is a fullback at heart, but a vital part of the running and passing game. He is a versatile fullback that proves to be a threat as a receiver. Janovich may be a wide-open option on short yardage downs if the Broncos continue to feed Juwan Thompson and Booker. This sinks the defense in and allows Trevor Siemian a wide-open target in Janovich for a score and more yardage.
