Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway and head coach John Fox expect RB Montee Ball to compete for a starting job amongst RBs Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman this year. The team envisions Ball as an every-down back in the NFL. "We expect all these guys to contribute," Elway said. "The earlier you go, the more we hope they contribute."
Fantasy Tip: It would take a lot for Ball to win the starting running back job over both McGahee and Moreno. Hillman is in the picture, too, although he's more of a change-of-pace back. For now, don't prepare to draft Ball unless McGahee or Moreno suffer an injury in training camp or the preseason.

ESPN.com's Bill Williamson suspects that Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman will receive some primary carries this year as the team looks to move away from older RBs Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. Hillman is more of a third-down change-of-pace back, and the Broncos like the way Ball runs, his durability and that he can also catch the ball out of the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: Ball's usage this year is purely speculative at this stage. We won't know more until training camp, probably. With McGahee, Moreno and Hillman all on roster still, though, it's hard to envision Ball making much, if any, fantasy impact in 2013 unless injuries crop up. He's not worth a draft pick this year unless you're in a keeper league.

The Denver Broncos selected Wisconsin RB Montee Ball with the 58th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: Ball has a ton of mileage on his legs coming out of college, but if he can remain healthy in Denver's offense with Peyton Manning at the helm, he can find a way to put up some fantasy football numbers. However, Willis McGahee, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno are still in the picture. It may be a year or two before Ball makes an impact.
