The Denver Broncos are not expected to be able to re-sign impending free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason. Moreno likely will test the free-agent market this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball, who has had a significant role down the stretch spelling Moreno, will likely become the team's main running back if Moreno departs in free agency. Ronnie Hillman would be the complement to Ball in 2014 if that's the case.

Fantasy Tip: To keep Moreno fresh for a playoff run, the Broncos will likely look to limit his workload somewhat in these last three games. Montee Ball will share more of the work and is a decent flex play. Moreno remains a solid RB2 against the San Diego Chargers.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 15:08:14 -0800

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 15:16:08 -0800

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 06:00:31 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball could see a larger workload to take some stress off of Moreno. Moreno should still be in your starting lineup, though, if he's playing. Ball is more of a flex play in deeper leagues.
Thu, 28 Nov 2013 19:45:47 -0800

The Denver Broncos are still hoping that RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) can play in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs after he missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 27. Moreno needed crutches after the Week 12 game to get to and from the trainer's room and wore a walking boot on the flight home. Interim head coach Jack Del Rio is calling Moreno day-to-day. RB Montee Ball is expected to start if Moreno can't play. Ball took snaps with the starters Wednesday. RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman would likely be mixed in, as well.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:44:20 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Moreno was hobbled in the fourth quarter and overtime in Week 12, and left a couple of times only to return and finish the game. More will be known on his status Friday. He had 27 carries for 79 yards in the Week 11 win against the Kansas City Chiefs in Denver, and makes for a nice low-end RB1 in all formats if he is active.
Tue, 26 Nov 2013 05:26:46 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) has a bone bruise in his ankle, but coach Jack Del Rio said he should be ready to practice by the end of the week. That may be a stretch because of how hobbled he was Monday, Nov. 25.
Fantasy Tip: It's still early in the week, but the beat writer seems to think the team will pass the ball more and utilize their other running backs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson in Week 13. It sounds like Moreno may not be much of a factor this week, even if he plays.
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:44:00 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) is expected to be questionable at best for the team's Week 13 game. If he is not able to play, RBs C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman could receive playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Ball likely would have the most fantasy value this week if Moreno is not able to play. Anderson and Hillman could also have value depending on how much playing time they would receive. Ball and Anderson should be considered as options for starting lineups this week.
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 12:36:15 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) is dealing with a bruised ankle, and the team expects him to practice at some point this week.

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 05:18:26 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) was on crutches with his right ankle in a walking boot after the Week 12 game. He had 37 carries for 224 yards in the game, which was a career high.
Fantasy Tip: This game took a lot out of Moreno, and his status for Week 13 is unknown.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 12:35:03 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 8, and is probable for Week 10.

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 14:20:54 -0800
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: This is the first time Moreno has been on the injury report. However, it doesn't appear serious if he was practicing in full early in the week. He's a must-start against the San Diego Chargers.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 12:44:02 -0700
The Denver Broncos plan to spell RB Knowshon Moreno more and will use RBs Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson in a platoon.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:35:02 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will be inactive for the team's Week 8 game. RB C.J. Anderson will be active for the game in place of Hillman.
Fantasy Tip: The demotion comes after Hillman fumbled in back-to-back weeks. Knowshon Moreno has been receiving most of the snaps at running back and will continue to do so this week. Moreno is the only Broncos running back that should be in fantasy starting lineups.
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 10:55:29 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman scored a touchdown in the team's Week 3 game after winning a game of rock-paper-scissors on the sidelines with RBs Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball to see who would get the goal line carry. "We were just messing around on the sideline," Hillman said. "Just something to do. Have fun."
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 09:58:15 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball averaged 1.3 yards per carry after fumbling in the end zone on the game-opening drive, and RB Ronnie Hillman only had one carry for three yards in the team's Week 2 win over the New York Giants.
Fantasy Tip: Things could have been much differently for Ball had he not fumbled on what looked to be a sure touchdown. That surely has set him back, especially coupled with the way Knowshon Moreno played in the rest of the contest. Moreno should now be owned in all leagues, and if he keeps playing like he did yesterday, Ball and Hillman could continue to see limited work.
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 07:19:47 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno had touchdown runs of 20 and 25 yards in Week 2. He also shined in the blocking game. He finished with 13 carries for 93 yards, while RB Montee Ball had 12 carries for 16 yards and a fumble near the goal line.
Fantasy Tip: Ronnie Hillman has been a non-factor, despite his starting status entering the year. Moreno is the clear back to own right now, but if you have roster space, Ball is a good player to stash. He's clearly struggling right now, and it is becoming clear that the Broncos are shifting in Moreno's direction.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 08:32:34 -0700
Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman will share time again in Week 2.

Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno was the starting running back in the team's Week 1 game.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 06:07:54 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno could start in Week 1, and play the most in the running back committee.
Fantasy Tip: The team is still looking for some stability at running back. Montee Ball has had trouble learning to pass protect, and Ronnie Hillman has had trouble holding on to the ball. Moreno appears to be on the most solid ground with the team.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 21:07:50 -0700
The Denver Broncos will use RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno in a running back by committee approach in their regular season opener Thursday, Sept. 5, against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The team makes protection QB Peyton Manning a priority, and Ball's pass protection is something he needs to improve, so expect to see plenty of Hillman and Moreno in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: The three-headed RB approach is something that will give fantasy owners fits, not just in the opener, but for the first handful of games until someone takes the reins and emerges as the clear-cut No. 1 tailback. It may or may not happen, but most figure Ball will be the one to emerge as the top dog. For now, Ball should be considered a low-end RB2, while the other two are best used as RB3s or flex options.
Mon, 02 Sep 2013 21:22:14 -0700
The Denver Broncos plan to use a running back by committee on a drive-by-drive basis, not play-by-play. In other words, RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno could see plenty of touches, or few. The team will run an up-tempo offense, and if the team stays on the field, so will the running back. If there is a stalled or short drive, the running back might chance on the next drive.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like a maddening situation for fantasy owners. Most talking heads figure Ball will emerge as the most useful of the fantasy backs once the dust clears, but it is murky at best, and will give fantasy owners headaches during the early going.
Sun, 01 Sep 2013 08:40:53 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is listed as the starting running back on the team's depth chart for Week 1. RB Montee Ball is listed as the backup running back and RB Knowshon Moreno is listed as the No. 3 running back.
Fantasy Tip: Hillman received a lot of time with the starters during training camp and the preseason and appears to get the first chance at the starting job. Ball and Moreno are expected to also receive playing time during games. Since the roles for each player is uncertain at this point, none of the running backs should be considered an every-week play at this time.
