Vikings | Ronnie Hillman signs with Vikings

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 09:31:50 -0700

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) signed with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, Sept. 21. Terms weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman is a grab-and-stash option for deeper leagues. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata really haven't done anything to write home about, and Hillman could sneak up and carve a role in a few weeks.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman done in Denver

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 14:36:14 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman was released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The writing was on the wall from the moment the Broncos drafted Devontae Booker this spring, as Hillman doesn't contribute on special teams and had clearly fallen behind C.J. Anderson on the depth chart. His NFL future is murky at best.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman likely out in Denver

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 16:47:14 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has fallen to No. 3 on the depth chart, and "it would be a surprise" if they elected to pay the remaining $1.4 million on his contract, according to 9News.com. reporter Mike Klis.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman's drop down the depth chart has been swift and dramatic, going from No. 1 early last year to falling behind C.J. Anderson and rookie Devontae Booker this summer. He's bound to get a look by another running back-needy team if or when he is released, perhaps as depth behind Frank Gore with the Indianapolis Colts. His next landing spot will obviously determine if he has any fantasy value.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman to work on special teams

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 06:52:22 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is expected to play on some special teams units during the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 20, because he is competing for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman probably needs to play well in the final three preseason games if he wants to make the final roster. He will see limited playing time if he makes the team and will not have much value in fantasy leagues. Devontae Booker is probably the backup to draft if owners are looking for a C.J. Anderson handcuff.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman has competition for job

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 19:03:29 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is facing a battle for a roster spot, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is getting competition from rookie RB Devontae Booker and RB Kapri Bibbs for the right to back up starter RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman is expected to see plenty of action in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the San Francisco 49ers. "Ronnie is in a battle, a helluva a battle with Kapri and Book right now," Kubiak said Monday, Aug. 15. "There's no way around that. I'm just being honest with you."

Fantasy Tip: Hillman might need to play more special teams and excel in the role to keep his spot on the roster. He posted 863 yards and seven touchdowns last season while adding 24 receptions. If he makes the team he is a solid handcuff to Anderson, but wait to see how the preseason plays out before risking a late-round fantasy pick on him.

Broncos | Two Denver backs listed as co-backups

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 16:00:31 -0700

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman and Devontae Booker are listed as co-backups behind RB C.J. Anderson in Denver's initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Booker has more upside, but Hillman's experience and versatility may give him more playing time out of the gate. The rookie should be drafted higher, though, but only for depth in traditional leagues. Hillman has been given plenty of chances and hasn't really run away with the opportunities, pun intended.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman back at practice

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 15:52:03 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (back) participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman is working on keeping the No. 2 running back job but is being pushed by Devontae Booker for the job. He probably will be a late-round option in fantasy leagues if he is the primary backup but likely will not be used much by owners.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman sits out Monday

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 10:22:03 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (back) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman probably should be considered day-to-day because of the injury, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is the No. 2 running back on the roster at this point, but he could be pushed by Devontae Booker during camp. Hillman should be an option in the late rounds of drafts.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman tweaks back

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 18:18:51 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (back) left practice and jogged to the locker room Sunday, July 31, after taking a hard hit to his back.

Fantasy Tip: The injury doesn't sound too serious, but Hillman's fantasy value is on shaky ground as he tries to hold off Devontae Booker to be the main backup to C.J. Anderson. For now, Hillman is only worth a late-round pick.

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.

Broncos | Denver talking with Ronnie Hillman

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 20:36:11 -0700

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) has exchanged contract proposals with the Denver Broncos, according to two NFL sources.

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.

Packers | Green Bay eyeing Ronnie Hillman

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 12:18:53 -0700

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) is one running back the Green Bay Packers have shown interest in.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have already re-signed James Starks, and Eddie Lacy is in better shape and seems ready to handle most of the backfield workload next season. If the Packers do sign Hillman, or another running back, it would simply be for depth and to spot Lacy and Starks. Signing with Green Bay would give Hillman minimal fantasy value as long as Lacy and Starks stayed healthy.

Broncos | Denver running game has been producing

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 16:27:15 -0800

The Denver Broncos have averaged 29.9 rushing attempts and 128.0 rushing yards (eight touchdowns) in their last nine games with RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman. The Broncos are unbeaten when they record at least 30 rushes and 130-plus rushing yards in a game this season. Anderson has been the more productive runner in a featured role.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson and Hillman complement each other well, and both will see plenty of opportunities to make a difference on offense in the Super Bowl against the Carolina Panthers unless the Panthers get out to a big lead early.

Broncos | Will Denver's running backs stay?

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 13:33:21 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent RBs Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson are both slated to become free agents this offseason. Anderson, however, will be a restricted free agent, so he'll be easier to bring back than Hillman, who will be an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos may want to keep both backs, but Anderson seems more likely to stay. Hillman had his fair share of success in 2015, but he's built somewhat of a reputation for fumbling the football and has a relatively small frame for a running back. With Peyton Manning possibly retiring and at least one running back possibly leaving, the Broncos could have a very new look on offense next season.

Patriots | Dont'a Hightower the X-factor?

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 15:50:55 -0800

The Denver Broncos were only able to run for 46 yards and no touchdowns on 16 carries with New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower in the game in their Week 12 matchup. After Hightower left due to an injury, Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman piled up 133 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries. LB Jamie Collins also missed that game.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) finished the divisional round running better than Hillman ($6,200, 12.4% of cap), so he could see more early work against the Patriots. The Broncos will mix both in, but with Hightower and Collins playing, yards on the ground may be tough to come by.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman to meet sturdy D

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 18:54:23 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. The Patriots ranked eighth in the NFL against the rush in the regular season, yielding just 98.8 yards per game with eight rushing scores.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is not the hammer in short-yardage situations, and he was outplayed against Pittsburgh by C.J. Anderson ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) who costs just a fraction more in FantasyScore. If you need to use a Denver back for some reason, Anderson is the better alternative.

Broncos | Denver run game had success against Pats

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 13:37:39 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson combined to rush for 172 yards in a Week 12 win over the New England Patriots. Anderson closed out the divisional round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers running well, and he could see the ball more often early against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots weren't the best fantasy matchup for running backs all year, but Denver had one of their best rushing games of the season against New England in bad weather. Anderson definitely looked much better against the Steelers, so it would certainly make sense for him to see more work early. But the Broncos have split the carries pretty evenly between both backs all year.

Broncos | Denver RBs rough up San Diego

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:13:00 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed 15 times for 117 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers, and RB C.J. Anderson had 15 rushes for 95 yards and a score, and he lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: The running game got on track at just the right time, leading the Broncos to a much-needed first-round bye. Anderson and Hillman will each be useful FantasyScore options in two weeks for their first playoff game.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, Owen Daniels probable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 15:12:18 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knee) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 18, and are probable to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers are one of the better teams at stopping the run this year, which makes Hillman ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) a low-end option on FantasyScore on a team that has struggled to run effectively this year. Daniels ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is tough to rely on and also loses targets to Vernon Davis. He's a deep sleeper pick, at best, in daily games.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman practices in full

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:31:56 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should continue to receive a majority of the carries but has not rushed for more than 60 yards in six of the last seven games. Hillman will be facing a tough Pittsburgh Steelers run defense, so owners may want to pass on him this week.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, Emmanuel Sanders practice

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:52:28 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (finger) both practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) hasn't done much with his carries in the last three weeks and faces a Pittsburgh Steelers defense whose strength is stopping the run. Even if C.J. Anderson sits again, Hillman is a bust candidate. Sanders ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has just five catches in the last two games but is due for a breakout, and Pitt's secondary could provide him just that. He's a sneaky pick on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman does nothing

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:16:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed 12 times for just 20 yards in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, failing to take advantage of the fact RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman faces another difficult matchup with the Broncos hitting the road for Pittsburgh in Week 15. He should be avoided in most fantasy formats.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson active

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 11:58:04 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) and RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) are officially active for the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will receive the start and could see a majority of the carries since Anderson's ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) role is uncertain at this point. Owners probably should consider using Hillman over Anderson if they have a choice.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman to start against Oakland

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:19:11 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) will start Week 14's game against the Oakland Raiders, despite being listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is worthy of consideration as a flex player in FantasyScore this week and he could see a great deal of offensive snaps with C.J. Anderson's ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) status for the game still up in the air.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson questionable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 15:23:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) are both questionable for Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders. Anderson did not practice Friday, Dec. 11, and Hillman was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is expected to be fine and will serve as the starter yet again. Not only is he healthier than Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) right now, but he's cheaper on FantasyScore in a solid matchup with the Raiders. Hillman is a fine flex play, but you'll probably want to avoid Anderson in this one in an afternoon tilt.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) practiced Friday, Dec. 11, and will start Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Oakland Raiders. RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) still has a chance to play, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) could have some upside if Anderson is limited or out. He's a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson sit out

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:03:29 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) both sat out of practice Thursday, Dec. 10, but a source said both running backs are expected to practice fully Friday, Dec. 11, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Although cheaper on FantasyScore, Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) remains the starter in Denver's backfield and is a fine value selection on FantasyScore with the Broncos running well the past three games. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) deserves flex consideration, though, against the Oakland Raiders at home.

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) are expected to be full go on Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) remains the starter in Denver's backfield, and he's a nice value pick against the Raiders this weekend. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is worth flex consideration as well, especially considering how well the Broncos have run the ball of late.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman doesn't practice

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 12:28:48 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, due to a sore foot. RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) did not practice either, but head coach Gary Kubiak is hopeful they will both be able to play. Additionally, Kubiak said he has confidence in RB Juwan Thompson if Thompson is needed.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) nor C.J. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4%) practiced today, so the Broncos running back situation will really need to be monitored this week. If they both play, Juwan Thompson ($2,000, 4.0%) probably won't see much action, but he is also worth monitoring.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman should play

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 13:49:39 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (tooth) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and is listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) probably will share time with C.J. Anderson this week but should see a solid amount of touches. Hillman will have a favorable matchup this week and could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Four Broncos have full practice

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:29:56 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (tooth), QB Brock Osweiler (quadriceps) and WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger) and Cody Latimer (non-injury) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like most of the core of the Broncos' offense should be good to go against the San Diego Chargers this weekend. Osweiler ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) and the passing game have a tough task ahead of them, though, as the Chargers have been a better than average fantasy pass defense. Hillman ($5,600, 11.2%), however, makes for at least a nice flex start as San Diego has been porous against the run this year.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, Owen Daniels limited

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 14:58:48 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (tooth) and TE Owen Daniels (knee) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) and Daniels ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) both should play this weekend barring setbacks. Hillman remains Denver's starting running back but will continue to split time with the emerging C.J. Anderson. Hillman is cheaper than Anderson, too, and looks like a great value pick against the weak San Diego Chargers run D. Daniels has at least five targets in the last three games and has been a safety blanket for Brock Osweiler. Still, Daniels remains a low-end tight end target, especially with Vernon Davis stealing looks, too.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman remains starter

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 12:22:37 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman remains the starting running back, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) hasn't looked nearly as good as C.J. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap), who scored two touchdowns in Week 12 including the game-winner in overtime, has looked recently. Against a porous San Diego Chargers run defense this weekend, both Hillman and Anderson are worth a look at least in a flex spot. Hillman remains attractive at a lower price as long as he's technically still the starter.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman finds end zone

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 22:45:04 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed 14 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the New England Patriots. He had one catch for no gain on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman squirted free for a 19-yard touchdown run, but outside of that he was mostly ineffective while C.J. Anderson has a strong game. Still, Hillman is worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore when the price is right.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman finds running room

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:54:01 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed for 102 yards on 21 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but will continue to receive a majority of the carries for the Broncos. He will be facing a New England Patriots defense that plays well against opposing running backs, which makes him a risky option for Week 12.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman officially probable

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 13:25:23 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 20, and he is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) should be viewed as a low-end No. 2 back in seasonal leagues, and he receives a slight boost in PPR formats. His fantasy value is tied to finding the end zone, though, as he projects to split carries with C.J. Anderson ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) again in Week 11. While Hillman's salary at FantasyScore has some profit potential, he is far from a lineup lock.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman takes part in practice

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:13:11 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is expected to continue as the starting running back but will have to share his snaps. He has rushed for 103 yards over his last three games but also has three touchdowns during that span. Hillman could be an option for owners, but there may be better options to consider.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman will remain starter

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 12:27:23 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will remain the starter again in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, but RB C.J. Anderson will also see time.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos must get their running game going to protect Brock Osweiler in his first career start. Both Hillman ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and Anderson ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) have been frustrating plays this season. That could continue against Chicago, but if you're going out on a limb with one on FantasyScore in a flex spot, it should be Hillman.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman a full go

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 15:38:17 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) saved his stat line with a garbage-time touchdown last week but mustered only 42 yards on 11 carries. Denver's ground game continues to struggle and will probably face a stacked box against the Chicago Bears with Brock Osweiler starting in Week 11. Hillman is a weaker flex play in daily games.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman finds end zone

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 21:12:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman carried 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also hauled in two receptions for nine yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: It appeared C.J. Anderson was ready to resume his role as the top banana in the Mile High City, but Hillman is again the runner of choice in Denver for FantasyScore players with Anderson laying an egg.
