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."

Broncos | Great opportunity for Knowshon Moreno

Thu, 22 Nov 2012 09:11:01 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he sees the injury to RB Willis McGahee (knee, leg) as a great opportunity for RB Knowshon Moreno. Moreno will split duties with RBs Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball. "He hasn't played, but he will be a part of it. It's going to be a three-man committee," Manning said. "Hey, this is the NFL. You are kind of used to where it doesn't matter what year you are or how old you are. If you're on an NFL roster, you're expected to go in there and contribute and do your job."

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman likely the replacement

Tue, 20 Nov 2012 12:04:14 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will likely get the first crack at carries after the loss of RB Willis McGahee (knee, leg). However, pass blocking will remain the biggest factor in which running back sees the majority of work with McGahee out. "For a smaller guy, he's pretty feisty in protection," head coach John Fox said about Hillman. "That's the thing that's always hard to learn for a rookie." RBs Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno could also be mixed in. Moreno has been inactive for the last eight games but hasn't been injured.

Broncos | Willis McGahee does not think injury is serious

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 05:52:53 -0800

Updating a previous item, Denver Broncos RB Willis McGahee (knee) does not believe the knee injury he suffered in Week 11 is serious, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. McGahee is scheduled to have an MRI Monday, Nov. 19. If McGahee can't play, he'd likely be replaced by RB Ronnie Hillman in the lineup. The backup would be RB Lance Ball.

Broncos | Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman fill in

Sun, 18 Nov 2012 21:51:08 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Lance Ball and Ronnie Hillman saw plenty of touches in Week 11 against the San Diego Chargers with RB Willis McGahee (knee) leaving with an injury. Ball carried six times for 35 yards, while added three catches and 21 yards. He also lost a fumble. The rookie Hillman had 12 totes for 43 yards, and he added two receptions for 16 yards.

Fantasy Tip: If McGahee is forced to miss time, it is likely Ball and Hillman will each see increased touches, making both worth a look as a 'flex' play heading into Week 12.

Hillman projects to be the team's change-of-pace back behind McGahee.

Mon, 24 Oct 2011 14:54:29 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Willis McGahee (finger) will undergo surgery on the fourth metacarpal of his index finger later this week.

The team could use RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lance Ball to split the carries, but head coach John Fox indicated that Moreno might not be 100 percent healthy yet.

Broncos | Willis McGahee has surgery

Mon, 24 Oct 2011 12:36:25 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said RB Willis McGahee (hand) underwent surgery on a fractured fourth metacarpal in his right hand Monday, Oct. 24, and he will not be available for the team's Week 8 game versus the Detroit Lions. It's also unlikely that he'll be ready for Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. RBs Knowshon Moreno and Lance Ball are expected to share the workload with McGahee out.

Fantasy Tip: Moreno, who had been demoted to No. 2 behind McGahee, should be your first target. He'll be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Denver still remains a run-first offense under John Fox, especially given Tim Tebow's deficiencies as a passer.
