Broncos | Peyton Manning working with rookie RB

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has been working with RB Montee Ball after organized team activities and said Ball has been learning the playbook. Manning said the team will be counting on Ball a lot this season. "We're just kind of going through plays, going through games, getting him comfortable hearing audibles at the line of scrimmage. Because we are going to count on him in a big way this year," Manning said. "He's a rookie, but [head coach John Fox] isn't going to bring him along slowly."

Fantasy Tip: It is pretty clear that Ball likely will be the team's starting running back this season. It is smart of Ball to work with Manning this offseason because it will allow him to learn the different things Manning does before the snap. Ball should be seen as a No. 2 fantasy running back this season or a weekly option for the flex position.
