Broncos | C.J. Anderson carries the load again

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 09:12:36 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 27 times for 167 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 12 win over the Miami Dolphins, and it was the most carries and rushing yards for a running back on the team since RB Knowshon Moreno had 37 carries for 224 yards in a loss Nov. 24 last year.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos came into the game dedicated to running the football, and Anderson help up his end of the bargain. Until Montee Ball (groin) or Ronnie Hillman (foot) return, Anderson is the unquestioned starting running back, and he gains added value in PPR leagues such as FantasyScore. Continue relying on him as a low-end RB1.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson top RB into Week 12

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 19:56:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson will serve as the top two running backs heading into Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins with RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin) sidelined at least two or three weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is a FantasyScore bargain at $5,800 (or 11.6 percent of the cap). Thompson will see less carries, but will only cost $3,000 (or 6.0 percent of the cap).

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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson has big day

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 09:23:15 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson finished the Week 10 win over the Oakland Raiders with 90 rushing yards and 73 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson was running hard and saw the bulk of the workload with Ronnie Hillman (foot) hobbled for much of the game. This could make the running back situation even more interesting and frustrating for fantasy owners when Montee Ball (groin) returns to action.

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 | 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 has major injury?

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 13:04:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) is expected to be out for a significant amount of time after suffering a groin injury in the team's Week 5 game, according to a team source. In his absence, RB Ronnie Hillman will step into the lead running back role, with RBs Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson also seeing action.

Fantasy Tip: For those that own Ball, be prepared to go without him for a while. In the meantime, run to the waiver wire and immediately add Hillman, who looked much better than Ball has all year in Sunday's win. Thompson is worth a look, too, if the team continues to use him in goal-line situations.
