Even with RBs Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson currently out of the lineup, Denver Broncos coach John Fox does not wish to add another running back to the depth chart at this time.
Fri, 08 Aug 2014 12:20:36 -0700
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (concussion) was diagnosed with a concussion during the team's first preseason game. Anderson will go through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (head) left the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson has moved to the front of the undrafted rookie running back pool and into the No. 4 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. His ability in the passing game might give him a leg up in the race with RBs Kapri Bibbs and Brennan Clay.
Fantasy Tip: Thompson was a solid tailback on an overachieving Duke team in 2014 for head coach David Cutcliffe, who is very familiar with QB Peyton Manning. However, even if Thompson were able to hang on and win the No. 4 job, he would still need an injury or two to gain fantasy relevance.

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 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.

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.
