Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball, who leads the rest of the team's rushers with 559 career rushing yards from his rookie season, is looked at as a veteran on the staff, according to head coach John Fox. Despite his lack of experience, Ball is penciled in as the starting running back this year. The coaching staff is also very confident in what they have in Ball's young backups in RBs Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson and Jerodis Williams. RB Brennan Clay's speed and quick learning of the playbook has him alongside Anderson for third-string repetitions.

The Denver Broncos will stick with RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman for now, according to general manager John Elway.
Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be surprising to see the team add a veteran for training camp, or even after the preseason once another club cuts a veteran, but Elway wants the backfield to run through its youngsters. However, he didn't mention potential sleeper C.J. Anderson, either, and he's still in the mix. Ball is the clear leader and will get first-round consideration, while Hillman is more of an RB4 at this point.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is focused on making the team after slipping down the depth chart quickly last season. "I have a chip on my shoulder now," Hillman said. "I am not paying too much attention to the depth chart. But I am not out here practicing to be No. 2." Hillman's work in regaining a job behind RB Montee Ball will start with him hanging onto the football. He fumbled twice last year inside the opponent's 10-yard line, and the team ran out of patient with him.
Fantasy Tip: Hillman is essentially undraftable if you were doing a draft today, unless you were using him as a handcuff to Ball in a deep league. C.J. Anderson has what it takes to become the backup to Ball, too.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball has the starting job, and the competition for the backfield is with the No. 2 spot, according to offensive coordinator Adam Gase.
Fantasy Tip: Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson are the main contenders. The bruising Anderson would seem to hold up better, but the slasher Hillman has more experience. It seems as if situational work would cancel them out as long as Ball is healthy and effective.

Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said the team is looking for RB Ronnie Hillman to improve his play if he wants to make the team this upcoming season. Hillman has fumbled four times over the past two seasons.

The Denver Broncos are not expected to sign a running back at this point, because they want to give RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson as many offseason reps as they can before they consider adding a veteran running back.

The Denver Broncos have declared OG Chris Kuper, TE Joel Dreessen, CB Quentin Jammer, RB Ronnie Hillman, DL Sione Fua, OT Vinston Painter, QB Zac Dysert inactive for Week 21.

The Denver Broncos are not expected to be able to re-sign impending free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason. Moreno likely will test the free-agent market this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball, who has had a significant role down the stretch spelling Moreno, will likely become the team's main running back if Moreno departs in free agency. Ronnie Hillman would be the complement to Ball in 2014 if that's the case.

The Denver Broncos have declared OG Chris Kuper, TE Joel Dreessen, CB Marquice Cole, RB Ronnie Hillman, DL Sione Fua, OT Vinston Painter, QB Zac Dysert inactive for Week 20.
Sun, 12 Jan 2014 12:24:18 -0800
The Denver Broncos have declared OG Chris Kuper, DL Derek Wolfe, TE Joel Dreessen, RB Ronnie Hillman, DL Sione Fua, CB Tony Carter, QB Zac Dysert inactive for Week 19.
