Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance Hillman ($3,500) can return to action Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he's likely to be behind C.J. Anderson for touches in the backfield. Still, Hillman could be worth a look as a deep sleeper at a FantasyScore flex spot if he's active.

Fantasy Tip: It still appears like Manning will be ready to go for the team's Week 16 game. It may be tough for him to live up to the expectations of a FantasyScore price of $8,800 though, especially with how the team has run the ball in recent weeks.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) left practice early Thursday, Dec. 18, because he is receiving a scheduled day of rest. Manning was not limping when he was walking to the locker room.
Fantasy Tip: Manning likely will be able to play in Week 16, but has seen some of his passing numbers go down over the last several weeks. Manning has on thrown for more than 257 yards in the last four games and only has three touchdown passes in the last three games. Manning costs $8,800 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners based on what Manning has been doing recently.

Fantasy Tip: Manning will cost $8,800 in FantasyScore this week, but that may be a lot to pay if the Broncos run the ball a lot this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. It may be hard for Manning to live up to expectations.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's health and declining arm strength are always a concern, but he should continue to be a top-five quarterback option in traditional leagues.

The Denver Broncos are hopeful RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) will be able to return for the Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22, or for the regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Dec. 28.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, even if Hillman can return FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him. Generally it's a good idea to wait to see a guy prove his health in a full game before risking salary on him. Time is running out unless you plan on playing FantasyScore into the NFL postseason.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has averaged 27.25 carries in the last four games, and his workload may need to be monitored by the team as the playoffs approach. However, it helps that Anderson started his midseason run with a completely fresh body since not being a featured back since his sophomore year in college. Denver had planned to cut Anderson's carries in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, but QB Peyton Manning falling ill changed the game plan. In the last two weeks, Anderson has 50 carries for 143 yards for a 2.9 yards-per-carry average. Before that, he was averaging 5.4 yards per carry. RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) is hoping to return in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals, which could take some pressure off Anderson.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,600) still remains a very safe option at FantasyScore right now with the Broncos' move to a heavy ground attack. As mentioned by Klis, the Bengals are one of the worst run defenses in the league, so the Broncos figure to attack them heavily on the ground, making Anderson a good daily option. Hillman's status for this week is unknown, making him too risky, even for $3,500.

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green continued to lead the team's tight ends in snaps with 50 in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, even with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) back on the field. Thomas played just 29 snaps in his first game back from injury. OT Chris Clark also lined up as an extra tight end for seven snaps in the team's first two possessions. TE Dominique Jones played four snaps at tight end.
Fantasy Tip: Green's excellent run-blocking ability has led to his increased playing time, as well as Thomas' injury. Thomas ($6,500) should start to see more snaps as he gets closer to 100 percent health, though. Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals may not be the time to put full trust back in Thomas, though, as the Bengals have held tight ends to an average of just 3.48 fantasy points in the last four weeks.
