Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said RB Ronnie Hillman will be counted on to have an increased role in the offense this year, and offensive coordinator Adam Gase is expected to utilize him more in the game plan. Manning has high expectations for Hillman this season.
Fantasy Tip: The Broncos coaching staff thinks highly of Hillman, too, so he will be used frequently. Unfortunately, Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball are all in the picture, too, so playing time is tough to predict right now. Hillman should be a nice late-round selection, though, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) and LB Joe Mays (ankle) were limited to individual drills during organized team activities Monday, May 20, because they have not been medically cleared to take part in team drills.

Denver Broncos RB Willis McGahee (leg, knee) will not take part in the team's organized team activities Monday, May 20, but it's the same approach he's had in the past for offseason workouts. "He's following the same routine he's done his whole career. He'll be there," agent Chafie Fields told said. "He's ready to compete. No messages." McGahee is coming off a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee and a broken leg.
Fantasy Tip: Rumors have been swirling this offseason that McGahee and Knowshon Moreno will battle for one roster spot in training camp after the team drafted Montee Ball in the second round of the draft. Both McGahee and Moreno were productive behind Peyton Manning, but if McGahee can't prove he's healthy this summer, he might be cut. If he wins the starting job, consider him a solid RB3.

Denver Broncos RBs Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee likely will compete for one roster spot during training camp because the team probably will not keep both. Moreno could have an edge for the No. 3 running back job because he is younger, less expensive and a better receiver than McGahee.
Fantasy Tip: The Broncos would like to go with Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman as their top two running backs this season, so Moreno and McGahee likely will be competing for the No. 3 RB job. Neither running back would have much fantasy value as the third running back. Whoever wins the competition should not be drafted in fantasy leagues this season.

Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway and head coach John Fox expect RB Montee Ball to compete for a starting job amongst RBs Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman this year. The team envisions Ball as an every-down back in the NFL. "We expect all these guys to contribute," Elway said. "The earlier you go, the more we hope they contribute."
Fantasy Tip: It would take a lot for Ball to win the starting running back job over both McGahee and Moreno. Hillman is in the picture, too, although he's more of a change-of-pace back. For now, don't prepare to draft Ball unless McGahee or Moreno suffer an injury in training camp or the preseason.

ESPN.com's Bill Williamson suspects that Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman will receive some primary carries this year as the team looks to move away from older RBs Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. Hillman is more of a third-down change-of-pace back, and the Broncos like the way Ball runs, his durability and that he can also catch the ball out of the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: Ball's usage this year is purely speculative at this stage. We won't know more until training camp, probably. With McGahee, Moreno and Hillman all on roster still, though, it's hard to envision Ball making much, if any, fantasy impact in 2013 unless injuries crop up. He's not worth a draft pick this year unless you're in a keeper league.

The Denver Broncos will not keep status quo at the running back position heading into the 2013 season. RBs Knowshon Moreno (knee) and Willis McGahee (knee) are coming back from injuries. By the time training camp opens, the team will have at least one more back who they believe could take carries as a potential starter in the offense.
Thu, 21 Feb 2013 12:25:40 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after the season. He is rehabbing the knee at the team's facility.
Sun, 17 Feb 2013 11:03:26 -0800
The Denver Broncos could consider releasing RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason. He is scheduled to count $3.28 million against the salary cap next season.
Thu, 17 Jan 2013 12:58:36 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) will not need surgery on the knee injury he suffered in the Divisional Round playoff game.
