Cowboys | Montee Ball not trade option for Dallas

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:26:24 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is not a trade target for the Dallas Cowboys, but the Cowboys could have interest in him if he is released by the Broncos, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ball ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) appears to be available and could be released if the Broncos are not able to find a trade partner for him. Ball likely would not have a big role if he joins the Cowboys and should not be used in fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | Dallas discussing Montee Ball

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 11:37:17 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos are discussing a trade that would involve shipping Broncos RB Montee Ball to Dallas.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is on the roster bubble for Denver, so a trade here would make sense. Now that DeMarco Murray is gone in Dallas, the Cowboys aren't married to any one runner this year, although Joseph Randle is expected to see the majority of carries over Darren McFadden. An addition of Ball would add another wrinkle to this backfield and make him worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues in case he makes a push.

Broncos | Montee Ball lays an egg

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 23:12:22 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed 16 times for 27 yards in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3. RB Kapri Bibbs tallied 27 yards on six rushes.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is really on shaky ground and may not make the team. He's not worth being drafted in fantasy right now.

Broncos | Montee Ball fighting for spot?

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 18:29:45 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball and RB Kapri Bibbs could be battling to be the final running back on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Ball ends up making the roster, he has plummeted down the depth chart since the start if the preseason and doesn't figure to make much of an impact.

Broncos | Two Denver RBs will see most work

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 14:06:59 -0700

Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs will see the majority of work in the Denver backfield Thursday, Sept. 3, against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: For Ball, especially, this will be his last chance to prove that he deserves to stay on the team. C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman and Juwan Thompson have already solidified roster spots. Neither Ball nor Bibbs are worth a spot on fantasy rosters at this point.

Broncos | Two Denver RBs fighting for spot

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:18:00 -0700

Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs aren't guaranteed a roster spot at this point. They will each play this weekend for one final audition.

Fantasy Tip: Ball has disappointed this preseason. He was expected to be the Broncos' No. 2 running back this season, but Hillman has supplanted him for that spot. Either one could at least still make the practice squad, or other teams may be interested if the Broncos aren't. Stay tuned.

Broncos | Montee Ball losing ground?

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:13:33 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball has already lost the backup running back role to RB Ronnie Hillman. RB Juwan Thompson may also surpass Ball in the near future, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

Fantasy Tip: Ball has not shown he deserves to be the No. 2 running back. Anderson, Hillman and Thompson have been much more impressive during the preseason, specifically Hillman. Ball will still make the final roster, but his fantasy value is decreasing by the week.

Broncos | Montee Ball looking to rebound

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 20:13:03 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball lost the starter's job due to ineffectiveness and multiple injuries last season. He heads into the season in a young, talented stable of backs, but RB C.J. Anderson is expected to be the leader of the group.

Fantasy Tip: Gary Kubiak is open to the idea of using a bell cow tailback, or a runner who will carry the load as a three-back option. Ball is clearly behind C.J. Anderson, but he has the talent and could step up if an injury occurs. Still, Ball needs to have a strong preseason and training camp with Ronnie Hillman and Juwan Thompson also battling for reps. Right now, he should only be considered as a handcuff to Anderson worth a late-round pick on draft day.

Broncos | Montee Ball likely in backup role

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 05:20:30 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is expected to receive seven or eight carries a game, while RB C.J. Anderson serves as the bellcow with 18 per game, in the opinion of beat writer Troy E. Renck.

Fantasy Tip: This disputes the idea that Anderson and Ball were "1-A and 1-B" in the team's thinking. Anderson is a low-end RB1 in this format, while Ball is an RB4.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson starts as top RB

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:27:51 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will begin training camp as the starting running back. Head coach Gary Kubiak said it's his job to hang on to. Kubiak also added that RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman have had solid offseasons and will make the running back battle competitive.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Anderson is the lead running back right now as he ran for 849 yards and eight touchdowns while starting just eight games last year. If Anderson can hold on to his starting position, he has low-end RB1 upside.
