Broncos | Ronnie Hillman may not make team

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:27:40 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman could be in jeopardy of not making the final roster if he can't contribute more on special teams during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Devontae Booker is in prime position to supplant Hillman as C.J. Anderson's backup, but it's not set in stone. Unless Anderson or Booker are injured before the season starts, Hillman's fantasy value will remain minimal. He can be left on waivers or taken as a deep flier in later rounds at best.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman the favorite for backup

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 14:37:26 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is still ahead of RB Devontae Booker to back up RB C.J. Anderson, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com. RB Kapri Bibbs will also compete with Hillman and Booker for backup duties.

Fantasy Tip: Denver will try to run the ball frequently this year, but the fantasy value of Booker and Hillman is minimal at this point. Booker probably has more upside, too, despite Hillman currently being ahead of him. Don't view either as more than an RB4, though.

Broncos | Devontae Booker to push for RB2

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 05:45:28 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) ran well after he recovered from a torn meniscus and appears poised to push RB Ronnie Hillman, who has the inside track for the No. 2 running back job.

Fantasy Tip: The backup role in Denver could be a fruitful one considering that C.J. Anderson had the job handed to him last year, and he didn't run with it. Booker is a big back that should be used in the red zone regardless and is an RB5 consideration. Hillman's asset is pass protection, which doesn't really translate into fantasy. He's an RB5 option, too.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson the lead back

Wed, 11 May 2016 17:35:55 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will receive the bulk of the carries in 2016 with RB Ronnie Hillman providing a change of pace. RB Devontae Booker will have a chance to play on third downs if he can pick up pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson had a lot of hype last season and fell flat. The offense is pretty questionable now with Mark Sanchez lined up as the starting quarterback. It's a risk to take Anderson as anything more than a great RB3. Hillman has spurts, but he's little more than an RB4. Booker could be worth an RB5 flyer if he makes some noise in camp.

Broncos | Different role for C.J. Anderson

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:17:17 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said his role will be different in 2016 because he will control more when he's off the field, as opposed to alternating so much with RB Ronnie Hillman and others.

Fantasy Tip: It's clear that Anderson is Denver's primary running back right now. That's what he was supposed to be last season, but Hillman took the spotlight at times. Hillman will still take away a good amount of playing time from Anderson, but Anderson can still achieve RB2 status if he stays healthy.

Broncos | More on Ronnie Hillman deal

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:51:09 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman's one-year, $2 million deal comes with a base salary of $1.8 million, including $400,000 fully guaranteed. A $100,000 signing bonus and $100,000 workout bonus were also part of the deal.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman will likely still play second fiddle to C.J. Anderson as long as Anderson is healthy. Hillman will still have an important role to play, though, and should be viewed as a RB3 heading into 2016 fantasy drafts.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman stays in Denver

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 14:49:53 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman re-signed to a one-year deal Monday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman's return puts a little bit of a dent in C.J. Anderson's fantasy value. Anderson will still likely be the main running back, but Hillman isn't too far behind. Anderson is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 range, while Hillman should be viewed as a low-end RB3.

Broncos | DEN making progress with Ronnie Hillman

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 14:22:52 -0700

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman's (Broncos) contract negotiations with the Denver Broncos have heated up recently.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman likely would be behind C.J. Anderson on the depth chart if he re-signs with the Broncos but would still see a solid offensive role in 2016. He should be a late-round option in fantasy leagues if he decides to return to Denver.

Fantasy Tip: If Hillman returns to Denver, he would likely play second fiddle to C.J. Anderson, at least to start the year, making him a late-round option in fantasy drafts.
