Broncos | Ronnie Hillman continues to impress

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:25:20 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman continues to run with confidence in the absence of RB Montee Ball (groin), and Ball will likely find it hard to win his starting job back when he's healthy. He showed impressive footwork and showed breakaway speed in the team's Week 8 win over the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 23, and he could have easily finished with two touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman is quickly becoming a must-start in all fantasy leagues in this high-powered offense. It was frustrating to see Juwan Thompson vulture two goal-line touchdowns from Hillman, but that shouldn't deter you from starting Hillman in the future.

Broncos | Montee Ball to miss Week 8

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 12:45:21 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ronnie Hillman probably will continue to receive most of the work at running back while Ball is out, but Juwan Thompson will also receive some playing time. Hillman costs $5,500 on FantasyScore and is a solid starting option for owners.

Broncos | Montee Ball out again Tuesday

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 14:31:22 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was not at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Ball won't be available on the short week against the San Diego Chargers. Ronnie Hillman has really stepped up in his absence. He's still relatively cheap enough at FantasyScore ($5,500; 11.0% of cap) to turn a profit.

Broncos | Montee Ball remains out

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:55:01 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice again Monday, Oct. 20. The Broncos didn't actually practice, so Ball's designation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is likely at least another week away from being able to return to the team. The rise of Ronnie Hillman in his absence, though, means Ball may not have much of a role when he returns. You shouldn't drop him in standard leagues, but be prepared for him to be no more than a flex option in the second half.

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 will miss Week 7

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:07:31 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his situation to see when he will be able to practice and play again. Ball should stay on the bench until he is ready to play.

Broncos | Montee Ball not practicing

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:45:10 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) missed his second straight practice this week Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ball will not play in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he might be out another few weeks. Avoid him for all of your fantasy football lineups.

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.
