Bears | Chicago hires John Fox as head coach

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:17:58 -0800

The Chicago Bears have hired former Denver Broncos head coach John Fox as their new head coach, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The hire of Fox should help Matt Forte since the team likely will look to run the ball under their new head coach. Jay Cutler's fantasy value likely will depend on who is hired as the offensive coordinator, so owners should monitor the assistant coaches the Bears hire over the next few weeks.

Broncos | John Fox will not return

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 14:13:20 -0800

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox and the team mutually agreed to part ways Monday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fox's departure could affect Peyton Manning's decision on whether he will retire or continue his playing career, so owners should watch for Manning's decision in the next weeks or months. If Manning does not return, it will hurt the fantasy value of most of the receivers on the team. Manning likely would still be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues if he decides to return.

Broncos | More on Ronnie Hillman touchdown

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 13:34:16 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said RB Ronnie Hillman was going back into the game to eventually score a touchdown, and a game of rock-paper-scissors was not going to dictate who went into the game. "That's just little stuff that people like to get on TV and have something to talk about," Fox said Tuesday. "Ronnie Hillman was going back in the game. That was just a little way to have fun, I guess. That wasn't official. Ronnie was running the ball. We decide that, not them."

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman back with first team

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 15:13:59 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman was running with the first team in practice Tuesday, Aug. 27. Head coach John Fox said not to read into RB Montee Ball taking first-team reps Monday, Aug. 26, even though he also took some turns with the starters Tuesday. Ball's starter work Monday might have had something to do with Hillman's preseason fumbling issues. The Broncos had Hillman carrying a football between reps the last few days.

Fantasy Tip: Denver is trying to condition Hillman into an every-down mentality with their focus on him protecting the ball. This remains a messy fantasy backfield; none of these options opens the season as anything more than a flex play. Even Knowshon Moreno would be a decent speculation for your bench. All things equal, Ball presents the best makeup to take over eventually, but the path there could take a long time.

Broncos | RB situation up in air

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 23:42:35 -0700

Denver Broncos coach John Fox told reporters he had not lost faith in RB Ronnie Hillman despite his tendency to cough up the ball. Hillman had two fumbles returned for touchdowns in preseason games. Still, RB Montee Ball took more snaps with the No. 1 squad Monday, Aug. 26, and Fox cautioned not to read anything. "It's just practice," Fox said. "I wouldn't read too much into anything. We're evaluating everybody regardless of who gets what reps at what numbers. He's a guy that we want to get touches and we'll go from there."

NFL | Willis McGahee released because of his knee injury?

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said he firmly stands by his decision to kneel the ball with 31 seconds left in the fourth quarter and two timeouts in the team's Divisional Round playoff loss last weekend. "I'd do it again 10 times if it presented itself in that situation," Fox said. President John Elway agrees with his head coach's decision in that scenario.
