Top Jaleel McLaughlin News

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Averages 5.4 YPC in rookie year

    McLaughlin (head) had 76 carries for 410 yards and one touchdown to go with 31 catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns while appearing in all 17 of the Broncos' games during his rookie season.

    Carving out playing time wasn't easy in a backfield that also included Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine, but the undrafted McLaughlin racked up at least six touches in 11 of his last 14 games and was on his way to reaching that benchmark again in Week 18 before a head injury knocked him out of the season-ending loss to the Raiders. McLaughlin led the team in yards per carry (5.4), and his strong rookie season could earn him a larger role in 2024 after he recovers from the head injury.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Exits Sunday's game

    McLaughlin is being evaluated for a head injury during Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ryan McFadden of The Denver Post reports.

    Prior to his exit, McLaughlin carried four times for six yards. While he's sidelined, Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine are available to handle the Broncos' Week 18 backfield duties.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Set for increased workload

    McLaughlin is expected to have an increased workload Week 18 against Las Vegas, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

    McLaughlin actually started at running back over Javonte Williams against the Chargers in Week 17, though Williams ended up with 31 offensive snaps to McLaughlin's 19. Nonetheless, McLaughlin put together the better performance, outrushing Williams, 44-41 yards, despite getting seven fewer carries. The running backs had an almost identical receiving line (3-18-0 for McLaughlin, and 3-17-0 for Williams), and both should play roles in Denver's season finale against the Raiders on Sunday. The Broncos have been eliminated from playoff contention, and with McLaughlin outperforming Williams of late, there appears to be a chance that the former gets more of the workload this weekend.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Leading rusher on eight carries

    McLaughlin took eight carries for 44 yards while corralling all three of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Chargers.

    McLaughlin finished as Denver's leading rusher despite seeing seven fewer carries than starter Javonte Williams, who finished Sunday's win with 41 rushing yards on 15 attempts. That's two consecutive weeks in which the backup has outproduced the starter both in terms of volume and efficiency. McLaughlin has shown good burst in his limited opportunities this season, posting a per-carry average of 5.7 yards through 15 games. The undrafted free agent has yet to receive double-digit carries in any game this year, but there is a chance McLaughlin reaches that mark against the Raiders in Week 18 given his strong play of late.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Nets 67 yards on 10 touches

    McLaughlin had six carries for 37 yards and caught four of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots.

    McLaughlin maximized his time on the field Sunday, converting 10 combined touches into 67 yards from scrimmage. The opposite could be said for starter Javonte Williams, who netted just 19 yards on 14 touches in the loss to New England. McLaughlin has been Denver's most efficient rusher this season, but he has spent most of the year operating as the team's third option behind Williams and veteran backup Samaje Perine. Perhaps the undrafted rookie will get more looks against the Chargers on Dec. 31 after Sunday's loss all but sealed the Broncos' fate in regards to making the playoffs this year.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Four touches against Detroit

    McLaughlin carried the ball two times for two yards and secured two of three targets for 16 yards in Saturday's 42-17 loss to the Lions.

    McLaughlin played just eight of Denver's 64 offensive snaps in the contest behind starter Javonte Williams (31) and primary backup Samaje Perine (25). With such limited usage, the rookie running back is far off the fantasy radar as anything more than an insurance policy if Williams or Perine were to miss time due to injury. McLaughlin will look to continue his role as a depth option out of the backfield when the Broncos host the Patriots in Week 16.

  • Broncos' Jaleel McLaughlin: Five carries in Week 14

    McLaughlin rushed five times for 25 yards and caught one of his two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Chargers.

    McLaughlin handled six touches for the second straight week and was only able to record 32 total yards in the contest. The rookie running back played just 13 of Denver's 67 offensive snaps behind Javonte Williams (40) and Samaje Perine (14). With Williams continuing to see the majority of opportunities out of the Denver backfield, McLaughlin's fantasy utility is extremely limited barring an injury ahead of him. The 23-year-old should not be a consideration for fantasy lineups when the Broncos visit the Lions in Week 15.
