Broncos | Adrian Robinson claimed

Mon, 02 Sep 2013 00:39:18 -0700

The Denver Broncos claimed LB Adrian Robinson off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 1. In addition, Denver released FB Jacob Hester.

Fantasy Tip: Because Denver already had five linebackers, try to avoid Robinson in your fantasy league unless you have a regular LB go down. The main reason why Denver claimed Robinson was to have extra help for the six games Von Miller will miss.

Broncos | Jeremiah Johnson having strong camp

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 20:36:02 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Jeremiah Johnson is having a fantasy training camp, but he is competing at a very tough position, with the likes of RBs Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno, FB Jacob Hester, Lance Ball and even C.J. Anderson ahead of him in the pecking order.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's preseason performances might not be to make Denver's 53-man roster, but rather to crack a roster with another NFL club. For fantasy purposes, even if he is a preseason superstar, he has a while to go before he is fantasy relevant.

Broncos | Have depth at RB

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 12:47:08 -0800

The Denver Broncos have employed a next-man-up attitude at running back this year after RB Willis McGahee (knee) went down, and the team has been successful with RB Knowshon Moreno in his absence. Their 114.5 yards rushing per game ranks seventh in the league. RB Ronnie Hillman fumbled early in the team's Week 17 game and was benched for the rest of the game in favor of RBs Lance Ball and Jacob Hester. Denver still managed to run for 172 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in that contest. "If you want to say one thing that's great about this team, it's that nobody's selfish," Ball said. "That's what you need to have a championship team."

Chargers | Trying to replace Darren Sproles

Sun, 31 Jul 2011 20:46:22 -0700

The San Diego Chargers could use a combination of RBs Ryan Mathews, Mike Tolbert and Jacob Hester on third downs as they try to replace departed RB Darren Sproles. None of them have shown Sproles' acumen for running routes or pass protection, so the team is looking for someone to step up on third downs. Tolbert seems to have the best all-around skill set right now to be Sproles' replacement, but Mathews is still an unknown in that department. Mathews has spent a lot of time in training camp improving on his blitz pick up, which he feels is starting to show.

Mon, 23 Aug 2010 07:46:01 -0700

The San Diego Chargers may keep only RBs Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles on the final roster because none of the other running backs are grabbing the No. 3 running back job, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune's Kevin Acee. FB Mike Tolbert has looked strong as a runner during the preseason, so he could make the team along with FB Jacob Hester.
