NBC SportsThe Denver Posts' Troy Renck believes Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine could be battling for a final roster spot in the Broncos' backfield.

"Rookie Audric Estime is making the team," writes Renck, who also believes second-year back Jaleel McLaughlin's place on the roster is secure. Assuming this is correct, it would, in all likelihood, leave Williams and Perine to battle things out for the final roster spot. Perine, 28, feels like the early odd man out, but he is coming off a season in which he averaged a career-high 6.7 yards per touch while also totaling 693 yards from scrimmage -- the second-highest total of his career. Williams, on the other hand, struggled in his first year back from a devastating knee injury. He averaged just 3.6 YPC on 217 carries but could rebound now that he's nearly two years removed from his injury. It's worth noting that both backs are carry-overs from previous regimes, while Estime and McLaughlin were hand-picked by Sean Payton and his staff. The Broncos' camp battle will be one to watch throughout the summer. There could be some strong fantasy value here as McLaughlin is currently going as a low-end RB4, while Estime is being drafted well outside the top-50 at his position.

Pro Football RumorsBroncos RBs Javonte Williams, Samaje Perine Competing For One Spot?

With two young running backs expected to earn a pair of roster spots in Denver, the Broncos may have to choose between two of their more experienced rushers.

NBC SportsBroncos HC Sean Payton said Audric Estime is expected to be a "full go" for training camp after undergoing a minor knee scope this offseason.

The Athletic's Nick Kosmider writes that Estime is expected to push Javonte Williams for the starting job in camp. Estime, who was selected by the Broncos in the fifth round of this year's draft, is a 5-foot-11, 233-pound bruiser who averaged 6.2 YPC in his three seasons at Notre Dame. Despite missing much of the team's offseason programs, Kosmider believes he'll have a chance to unseat Williams, the incumbent, who is a second year removed from a devastating knee injury that ended his 2022 season. Williams averaged just 3.6 YPC last season while totaling 1,002 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns, but should still find a role in Payton's offensive -- even if it's a reduced one. We'll see how things play out in camp, but it will likely take an impressive performance from Estime for him to be viewed as the Week 1 starter.

Draft SharksCan Javonte Williams Bounce Back?

Broncos RB Javonte Williams was one of the least efficient runners in the league last year. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry and ranked 42nd among 49 qualifiers in NFL Next Gen Stats Rush Yards Over Expected Per Attempt. It's certainly worth noting that Williams was returning from an October 2022 multi-ligament knee injury. He was cleared for the start of training camp last summer, but it s fair to wonder if the knee was still a factor throughout the season.
