Broncos | Montee Ball understands need to block

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball talked about what it takes to get onto the field in the NFL Wednesday, July 31. "Honestly, it's 60 percent pass protection, 40 percent running the ball," Ball said. "In the NFL, it's no secret: it's a passing league. And on this team, when you have a great quarterback like we have, you've got to protect him."

Fantasy Tip: Ball has a very mature outlook for a rookie. He is battling Ronnie Hillman, Knowshon Moreno and even Jeremiah Johnson for reps. Ball is the newcomer who the team will want to see more of in the preseason, so expect to see him plenty. He was a big fish in college, but he needs to set himself apart in the pros. For now, he isn't expected to get a lion's share of the carries, but that could change in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
