Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) has received full medical clearance, but did not participate in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Ball isn't ready for full contact yet, it's still promising that he's been medically cleared. He should be drafted between the late-first and middle-second rounds.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) participated in drills with a helmet on Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Another sign of progress for Ball, who will likely be off most draft boards in the first two rounds. The team will likely be cautious with working Ball back into a regular practice schedule.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is making good progress and said there is a chance he could return to practice at some point this week.
Fantasy Tip: The team could ease Ball back into practice since the regular season does not start for a few weeks. Ball will be the team's starting running back this season and probably will be selected in the first two rounds of most fantasy leagues.
Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:00:48 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) was doing some jogging during practice Thursday, Aug. 14.
Fantasy Tip: Ball is coming back from an appendectomy and still has a few weeks to recover from the surgery. Ball should be able to play most, if not all, of the regular season and probably will be taken in the first two rounds of most drafts. He should be considered a risky play in Week 1 because of the injury.

Even with RBs Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson currently out of the lineup, Denver Broncos coach John Fox does not wish to add another running back to the depth chart at this time.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is in attendance at practice Saturday, Aug. 9, and said he is feeling better after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.
Mon, 04 Aug 2014 11:06:20 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) will undergo an appendectomy Monday, Aug. 4, but is expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener against Indianapolis, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: This could certainly have a negative effect on Ball's outlook heading into the season. This is a situation to keep tabs on throughout the preseason. As long as Ball gets healthy and is ready to go against the Colts, he still has RB1 potential in all scoring formats. If Ball were to miss more time than expected, C.J. Anderson would have increased value.
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 22:21:13 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson has moved to the front of the undrafted rookie running back pool and into the No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. His ability in the passing game might give him a leg up in the race with RBs Kapri Bibbs and Brennan Clay.
Fantasy Tip: Thompson was a solid tailback on an overachieving Duke team in 2014 for head coach David Cutcliffe, who is very familiar with QB Peyton Manning. However, even if Thompson were able to hang on and win the No. 4 job, he would still need an injury or two to gain fantasy relevance.

The Denver Broncos will still be a passing team but want to have a more efficient running game since they will be facing more defensive subpackages during games. "We're always going to try to get the best look, to do the best thing in each situation for the offense to be successful," offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "The more things we can do, the more options we have. We want to be able to execute the plays we want in those situations. If that's throwing, that's throwing the ball, if it's running, then we want that available, too." A better running game will also help QB Peyton Manning's play-action passing.
Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball is entering this upcoming season as the starter and should have space to run with opponents worrying about the teams running game. Ball should be a starter in every league and likely will be selected in the first two or three rounds.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball appeared to show the most improvement in his game as a receiver during OTAs. He also displayed improved footwork during workouts and better positioning during pass protection.
