Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is slotted behind RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart, and he is a versatile back. He never rushed for more than 500 yards in a season in college, but he caught the ball well, blocked well and played special teams. He even started a game at linebacker in college.
Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is expected to be involved in the offense to a degree, but he probably won't be much of a factor on FantasyScore this week.

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.

Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (groin), FS David Bruton (ankle), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Corey Nelson (hamstring) and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are listed as probable for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: McManus should have several chances to put up some points this week and is a solid starting option.

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.

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. "I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year," Thomas said. "I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better."
Fantasy Tip: With nine touchdowns through five games, it looks like Gonzalez's advice has paid dividends. Having Payton Manning throwing him the ball probably has something to do with Thomas' success, as well. Either way, Thomas has been the best tight end in the game this year, and if you are going to pay for a premium player at the position, he is the guy to target. He will take up 14.2% of the cap ($7,100) at FantasyScore in Week 7, and he could have a big game against a San Diego defense that allowed four touchdowns passes to rookie Derek Carr last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: You could do much worse than starting McManus as your FantasyScore kicker on a weekly basis.

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.
