Broncos | Montee Ball fighting for yards

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 08:24:52 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed for 69 yards in the team's Week 1 game, but 55 of those yards came after contact.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is a part of an explosive offense and will continue to get the chance to post solid stats each week. Ball should be in the starting lineup in most leagues because of his matchup and could be a fine addition on FantasyScore at $7,800.

Broncos | Montee Ball improving

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:27:37 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) continues to do more work in practice each day, but most of his work continues to be outside of the team structure. However, he was wearing pads and working individually with QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, Aug. 20, and his workload is scheduled to increase. Ball might be ready to get some action in the preseason finale.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should be cautiously optimistic that Ball will be available for Week 1, but be sure to have plenty of depth on hand in case he isn't ready to answer the bell for the opener. Ronnie Hillman would be a great play in Week 1 if Ball is out or suffers some sort of setback.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is making good progress and said there is a chance he could return to practice at some point this week.

Broncos | Montee Ball able to do some jogging

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:00:48 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) was doing some jogging during practice Thursday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ball is coming back from an appendectomy and still has a few weeks to recover from the surgery. Ball should be able to play most, if not all, of the regular season and probably will be taken in the first two rounds of most drafts. He should be considered a risky play in Week 1 because of the injury.

Broncos | Montee Ball to have appendectomy

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 11:06:20 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) will undergo an appendectomy Monday, Aug. 4, but is expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener against Indianapolis, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This could certainly have a negative effect on Ball's outlook heading into the season. This is a situation to keep tabs on throughout the preseason. As long as Ball gets healthy and is ready to go against the Colts, he still has RB1 potential in all scoring formats. If Ball were to miss more time than expected, C.J. Anderson would have increased value.
