Montee Ball: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ball will be the Broncos' top running back this season, but he could split time with backups Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson, USA Today Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase has been steadfast in the notion that Ball is the team's top back, though he indicated it will not be a one-man show and that other running backs could even start. As a rookie last season, Ball appeared in all 16 games, racking up 559 yards and four touchdowns on 120 attempts. With Knowshon Moreno now out of the picture, it would appear Ball has little competition for the No. 1 spot, though this latest news suggests Hillman and Anderson will certainly have opportunities to produce.
Ball is in line to be the Broncos' starting running back in 2014, with Knowshon Moreno signing a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Moreno was never expected to re-sign with Denver and that became official with his new Dolphins deal. The Broncos could bring in another veteran to training camp in order to compete with Ball, but he's the clear favorite to win the job against the likes of Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson.
Ball is expected to be the Broncos' starting running back in 2014, the Denver Post reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A second-round pick in this year's draft, Ball piled up 3,753 rushing yards and a remarkable 61 total touchdowns in his final two years at Wisconsin. The NCAA's career leader with 83 touchdowns, Ball is a decisive, downhill runner with good vision and burst at the line of scrimmage. While he may not be the fastest or biggest back, at 5-10, 214, he is plenty shifty, knows how to follow his blocks and has the strength and toughness to absorb contact and shed tacklers. Veterans Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno combined for more than 1,200 yards and eight scores on 305 carries last year for the Broncos, but with McGahee released and Moreno coming off a knee injury, the lead role in the Denver backfield is Ball's for the taking. Ronnie Hillman should also provide a change of pace as the team's speed back, but Ball could own the goal-line work and already might be a better pass protector than Hillman. In a Denver offense that scored 30.1 points per game last year, there's a lot of upside here.
