Asiata Set to Start in Week 3


Pyro's take: Reports all week have been the split will break down in favor of McKinnon as he is reported to be getting 65% of work.

Fantasy Goo: Now with Asiata set to start, I am thinking it will be more 50-50. I love McKinnon, but the team also grabbed Hillman, who is inactive this week. Going forward, this is going to be a headache.

Devontae Booking A Reservation As The Number Two Back In Denver

Denver Broncos

Pyro's take: Denver Broncos beat writer Mike Klis is reporting that RB Devontae Booker "slid in to reps with the first-team offense" in Saturday's practice ahead of Ronnie Hillman. Klis is also suggesting that the "plan may be for Anderson and the rookie Booker to be the Broncos’ 1-2 running backs" in 2016.

Fantasy Goo: It appears that Booker is in a training camp position battle for the No. 2 running back spot on Denver's depth chart behind C.J. Anderson. Ronnie Hillman has been slated to open the season at the No. 2, but Booker is clearly proving that he can roll with the veterans and is making a serious push for the job. Monitor this situation closely as the fantasy football landscape of Denver's backfield could be dramatically changed leading up to Week 1.

Ronnie Hillman Expected To Be Primary Backup In Denver

Denver Broncos

Pyro's take: Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman appears to have the "inside track" the No. 2 running back spot behind C.J. Anderson according to Andrew Mason of the team's official website.

Fantasy Goo: Ronnie Hillman will likely resume his role as the No. 2 running back in Denver behind C.J. Anderson for another season. Hilman has been a solid back for the Broncos and serves well as a compliment to Anderson. The only competition for the spot is said to be from rookie Devontae Booker, but he is unproven and will have to shine in the preseason to make a dent in Hillman's tenure role. Consider Hillman the primary handcuff to Anderson who does see his share of touches throughout the season and set him on fantasy draft boards in accordance to his position on the depth chart.

Healthy Competition Brewing in Broncos Backfield

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson

Pyro's take: Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson suggested to NBC 9's Mike Klis that he is unfazed by the remarks made by rookie Devontae Booker. Earlier in the week, Booker claimed that he's not in Denver to "carry pads," but "there to take someone's job."

The Denver Broncos have some healthy competition at the running back position heading into training camp. Devontae Booker is pushing to make a name for himself, which will only drive C.J. Anderson to work harder to keep his starting job. Despite Booker's confidence, Anderson's spot on the depth chart is safe barring any unforeseen injuries. For fantasy football purposes, Booker will likely compete with Ronnie Hillman for the change of pace role in the backfield,and whoever emerges should be viewed as Anderson's handcuff.

The 2 Lead Backs on the Denver Depth Cahrt Both Questionable for Week 14


Pyro's take: Hillman will play, as will Anderson. However, Anderson will certainly be on a snap count. If you are looking for a sneaky GPP play if you are in multiple DFS lineups, Thompson should likely get the goal line work.

Even against a tough defense, Broncos are going to be running


Pyro's take: No team has topped 95 yards rushing in the past five games against the Patriots, and two were held to fewer than 40 yards rushing. But the Broncos are still going to have to try to pound the ball. Why? Because the Patriots are second in the league in sacks and Chandler Jones has 10.5 in 10 games. Since opposing defenses have created problems for the Broncos' offensive line, Patriots coach Bill Belichick will certainly try more than a few things to get to quarterback Brock Osweiler, who will be making just his second career start. It all points to the Broncos leaning on their run game -- with Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson -- to protect their young quarterback. -- Jeff Legwold

Ronnie Hillman will get the start again this Sunday


Pyro's take: Nicki Jhabvala via Twitter stated "Kubiak said Ronnie Hillman will start at RB again."

Rinse and repeat. Hillman starts but this is a RBBC in Denver.

Ronnie Hillman rushed 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown


Pyro's take: Ronnie Hillman was the only bright spot for the Denver Broncos. He had a 13-2 carry advantage for Anderson, and should be considered a number two/three running back against the Chicago Bears

Hillman will be the Starter

no go

Pyro's take: Well, the writing has been on the wall. The coaching staff is officially starting Hillman going forward. Sure CJ will get some play, but I dropped him last week, I do not see any reason to carry CJ going forwad. Twas fun while it lasted my firend. As I said on the most recent episode of the Light, I draft CJ first, also had Foster on that team and lost Big Ben for 4 games. If the playoffs started today, I would be in. NEver give up, remember trading, waivers, and setting your lineup is 75% of the game.

Hillman Who Knows When

Ronnie Hillman's injury could take him out two weeks, but also it may take six. According to ladies man Adam Scheffer via his twitter "Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman was expected to miss at least 2 weeks with foot injury, but it also could be as many as 6 weeks, per sources."

Pyro's take: Wondering how many woman or how viable those sources are from stud Scheffer. Either case with the way CJ Anderson is playing it is not the worst news Denver could be going through. On the other hand there isnt many Broncos in the stable left. Montee Ball looks gone for the season, and if Hillman is also out, that leaves only Anderson.

CJ Anderson should be an automatic pick-up for all owners if he is still available. Juwan Thompson will also be actively involved now.

Hillman Out

According to Jeff Legwold, ESPN reporter for the Broncos, "At #Broncos practice -- No Hillman (foot) or Irving (knee). TE Virgil Green (calf) back in practice. #Broncos indoors again as well."

Pyro's take: Ronnie Hillman looks as though he may not be ready for Sunday's game. If he cannot go, expect another return of CJ Anderson. Any running back for the Broncos deserves to start, unless your Montee Ball.

Rock, Paper Scissors...Touchdown

Early in the fourth quarter, with Denver already leading 30-14, Ronnie Hillman scampered for 19 yards, stretched for the end zone and came up short. The referees huddled to determine if Hillman scored.

As the refs deliberated, running backs Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball lobbied Hillman to get the chance to run the ball in on the next play. So the three decided to play a game of rock-paper-scissors, with the winner getting the carry.

"We were just messing around on the sideline," Hillman said, per the Broncos' official website. "Just something to do. Have fun."

We have discrepancy on the official scoring: According to the Broncos, Hillman won choosing rock while Ball and Moreno went with scissors. USA Today reported that Hillman said Moreno was disqualified for throwing rock early, and Hillman's scissors trumped Ball's paper.

Pyro's take: Well, it must be nice to be a Bronco these days, when you can play a game of Rock Paper Scissors to decide who gets the touchdown. It is clear now that both Montee Ball and Knowshon Moreno need to step up their game before next week.

Ronnie Hillman fumbling his starter role away

“(Fumbles have) been a huge point of emphasis for us this offseason because the fumbles we had early in the season last year—that was one of the main factors of why we started off as slowly as we did,” Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase said. “So this has been a big emphasis, and for us to have three fumbles in the first half (at Seattle) was totally unacceptable.

“We’ve been working on it again, and the point of emphasis has to be that we cannot turn the ball over.”

Gase also said that while protecting the quarterback is important, holding on to the ball is “equally as important.” Hillman dropped the ball twice in the preseason game at Seattle last week – he lost only one, but it was particularly painful as it went for six points the other way.

That is the sort of thing that Gase is looking to avoid.

“The ball security – when the ball is in your hand, the ball cannot be on the ground,” Gase said. “What happened the other day? I’m telling you – unacceptable. It’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen anymore.

“We’re not going to put the ball on the ground, or else they’re not going to carry it.”

Pyro's take: Ronnie Hillman was named the starter, but with this performance against Seattle, he may have just given it back to Montee Ball. Not only did Hillman fumble twice, losing one, he had a mere 34 yards on 13 carries for 2.6 YPC average.

Meanwhile, Montee Ball came into the game and had 6 carries for 28 yards, 4,7 YPC average. We are still believers that it will be Ball who will score more fantasy points this season, and Hillman's fumble on the goal line going 106 yards the other way for a touchdown should give Ball the extra push he needed.

Fumbling is the one thing a running back can do to lose his job, and having 2 in this game really hurt Hillman. It will be interesting to see how Denver uses these backs in their 3rd preseason game.
