Broncos | Ronnie Hillman thinks he can carry the load

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is confident that he can carry the load as the team's featured back this season, despite his size. "You get that when you're a smaller guy," Hillman said. "You can't take the pounding, but I just brush it off. Of course you hear things. I'm not going to sit here and say I don't hear what they say, but you just got to let it go." Hillman put on 15 pounds of muscle in the offseason, but the team has told him they'd like him to play around 190 to 195 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman will compete with rookie Montee Ball for the majority of touches behind Peyton Manning in training camp. Hillman could enter Week 1 as the starter, but Ball will likely become the main back in Denver eventually. Draft Ball in the middle rounds of your draft as an RB3 with potential for more. Hillman isn't a bad late-round pick for running back depth.
