Broncos | Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman out again

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:12:12 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) both did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player will play this weekend against the Miami Dolphins, leaving C.J. Anderson ($5,800) to the main running back duties again. Anderson faces a stiff test against the Dolphins defensive front, but he may be worth a lineup spot because of his ability to catch passes, and FantasyScore rewards points per catch.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball sitting

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 10:56:26 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin) are not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Neither running back is expected to play in Week 12, so C.J. Anderson should continue to receive most of the work at running back. Anderson costs $5,800 on FantasyScore and could be a starting option for owners.

Broncos | Montee Ball to miss 2-3 weeks

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 14:14:49 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will miss the next two to three weeks after aggravating his groin injury in Week 11, according to two league sources. RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) is expected to miss another game in Week 12 with his foot ailment.

Fantasy Tip: For at least another week, C.J. Anderson will be the primary ball carrier for the Broncos. He's a nice option again in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, especially in PPR leagues like FantasyScore. Ball probably won't be fully healthy for the rest of the season. Dropping him in shallow leagues is understandable.

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 17:35:47 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) said Sunday, Nov. 16, that he didn't feel right after the first few plays of the Week 11 game against the St. Louis Rams. He said it is "hard to tell" how much time he will miss.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Anderson will be the biggest beneficiary of Ball's absence, if he indeed is forced to miss additional time and Ronnie Hillman remains sidelined, too.

Broncos | Montee Ball leaves again

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 11:20:28 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) left the team's Week 11 game for a second time because of a groin injury. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Ball went back into the game, but it appears he aggravated his groin injury more severely this time. Ball could miss more playing time, which likely would give C.J. Anderson a bigger role in the offense. Anderson could be a weekly starting option until Ball and Ronnie Hillman are healthy.

Broncos | Montee Ball hurt, probable to return

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 10:49:27 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) left the team's Week 11 game early because of a groin injury but is considered probable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Ball likely aggravated his groin injury, but it does not look like it is serious. Ball was being eased back into the offense after missing time and probably will be limited because of the injury. Owners may want to keep Ball on the bench until he is healthier.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson will start

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 07:37:47 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be the starting running back in the team's Week 11 game. RB Montee Ball will be the No. 2 running back.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson played well in Week 10, rushing for 90 yards, and probably will receive a majority of the carries in Week 11. Anderson costs $5,300 on FantasyScore and could be a good No. 2 running back or flex option. Ball costs $4,600 but may not be a great option to use, because he may see limited work during the game.

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:30:22 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ball likely will be active for the game, but probably will be eased back into the offense since he has missed several games. Ball has a price tag of $4,600, but owners should consider looking for a better option to use.
