Broncos | Duo splits first-team carries

Fri, 29 May 2015 06:07:38 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson are splitting first-team repetitions during organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is expected to be ahead of Ball on the depth chart, but the two will both see a lot of action in Gary Kubiak's RB-friendly offense. Anderson is an elite RB2 while Ball projects as a low-end RB3.

Broncos | Montee Ball eyes starting role

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 12:22:23 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is confident that he will regain the lead-back role with the team, but admitted that RB C.J. Anderson deserves the job right now. Ball is currently behind Anderson and RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart. Ball blames an appendectomy in August of last year for weakening his core, which then led to a torn right groin that put him on Injured Reserve. He had just 172 yards on 55 carries and a touchdown in 2014. Ball started feeling better in February and has spent the last three months working on his flexibility with a personal trainer.

Fantasy Tip: Ball has plenty of work to do, but at least he's in a system that could really benefit him if he finds himself on the field often. Unfortunately, that'll probably have to come at the expense of an injury or poor play for Anderson or Hillman. Ball won't be a draft consideration in standard fantasy leagues this fall unless something drastic happens over the summer.

Broncos | Denver RB competition fierce

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 16:25:20 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson, who finished 2014 with 648 rushing yards in the last six games, will enter the 2015 season at the top of the running back depth chart, according to new head coach Gary Kubiak. However, competition will be fierce for touches in training camp, with RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman still around. Ball vowed "to get back my job" at the end of last season after landing on the Injured Reserve. Hillman is a wild card, and he has yet to top 106 carries in any one season. RB Juwan Thompson is a possibility as a fullback/running back hybrid.

Fantasy Tip: Because of what he did last year, Anderson is the favorite to be the bell-cow back in Kubiak's system, which has produced plenty of successful runners. Anderson will likely be overvalued in 2015 fantasy football drafts, but he could be the X-factor on your roster, depending on whether he can hold off the other runners in Denver.

Broncos | Montee Ball placed on IR

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 11:07:04 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Saturday, Dec. 13. SS Quinton Carter (knee) was also placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Anderson ($7,000, 14%) will remain a viable starting option with Ball on IR, though he would have been had Ball returned anyway. Juwan Thompson figures to see backup duties going forward. Anderson does have a tougher matchup this week against the San Diego Chargers and might be worth looking past in Week 15.

Broncos | Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman out

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:58:00 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) both did not practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and have been ruled out for Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: You can forget about Ball and Hillman for at least another week, and neither running back is likely to help you in the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. C.J. Anderson ($6,600) remains the bell-cow back for now, and he's more valuable in PPR leagues such as FantasyScore.
