Broncos | Montee Ball unlikely to regain role

Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:38:25 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will have a difficult time regaining the featured-back role this season after his injury. It's beat writer Mike Klis' opinion that Ball never fully recovered from his appendectomy, which could have been a precursor to his groin injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ronnie Hillman ($5,000; 10% of your cap) appears to have been a waiver-wire gem and makes a great RB2 on FantasyScore this week. Juwan Thompson ($3,000; 6%) is expected to be involved, but he probably won't be much of a factor this week.

Broncos | Montee Ball a no-show at practice

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 15:50:02 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is not expected to play again in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday night. Ronnie Hillman ($5,000; 10.0% of cap) remains the lead back in Ball's absence, but he'll face a stiff run defense in the Niners this weekend. He could wind up being a bust after a 100-yard rushing effort last week.

Broncos | Committee to replace Montee Ball?

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 17:43:24 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman, RB C.J. Anderson and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) will all be leaned on while RB Montee Ball (groin) is out with a groin injury, according to head coach John Fox. Anderson said he feels that the back that has the hot hand will receive a majority of the carries.

Fantasy Tip: All three backs have a tough matchup in Week 6 with the Broncos facing the sixth-ranked rush defense of the New York Jets. Fantasy owners may be better served waiting to see how the carries are divided Sunday and then trying to find value in the Denver backfield in the coming weeks.

Broncos | Montee Ball ruled out

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 14:43:57 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ball probably will miss another week or two because of his groin injury. Ronnie Hillman and Juwan Thompson are expected to handle the running back duties. Hillman costs $5,000 on FantasyScore and probably is the better option for fantasy owners.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman the guy

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 07:40:17 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will serve as the lead running back in RB Montee Ball's (groin) absence. "Ronnie has played at different times, in different amounts, but when you're the starting back and running out there in pregame warm-ups as a starting back, it's a different hat that you wear," said QB Peyton Manning. "There's no question he has a burst that is pretty unique when he gets the ball in his hands. It's our job to give him space."

Fantasy Tip: This was all but confirmed, but there was also word that he would be in a timeshare. Hillman ($4,000; 8% of your cap) has a tough matchup against the New York Jets this week, and C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson should see time. However, Hillman is a great flex option on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Montee Ball sits out Wednesday

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 13:18:53 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ball will miss up to three games with a fairly serious groin injury. You can forget about him at FantasyScore for at least a few weeks. Ronnie Hillman ($5,000) should see the majority of touches against the New York Jets, and is a smart play.
