2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The appendectomy procedure that has removed Montee Ball from training camp has given an unexpected opportunity to Broncos backup running back C.J. Anderson. Anderson, an undrafted free agent who also made his NFL debut alongside Ball in 2013, has not yet won a competition against Ronnie Hillman to be the team's lead tailback until Ball returns, but appears to be the more well-rounded back, which will likely mean that he gets the majority of snaps for the time being. Anderson could hypothetically show some amazing flashes that force the Broncos' hand in giving him more playing time. The most likely scenario, however, is that he and Hillman will split carries in the preseason before conceding the lion's share of touches to Ball once the regular season begins. Both Anderson and Hillman's value is essentially tied to the success of Ball. If Ball puts the ball on the ground too often for head coach John Fox's liking or if he sustains an injury that puts him out for a long period of time, Anderson and Hillman could have value. Until then, though, both players will likely remain relatively useless for fantasy purposes.

Injury Ball to undergo appendectomy on Monday
Expected to ready for Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 4, 4:15 pm

Denver Broncos
Broncos RB Montee Ball will undergo an appendectomy today but is expected to be ready for regular-season opener vs. Colts, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Some athletes have returned quickly from appendectomies - Titans LG Andy Levitre was cleared to practice about two weeks after his late July surgery - but the normal recovery period is 4-6 weeks. While Ball should be expected to go for the opener, it should come as a surprise if he begins the regular season a bit slow. Ronnie Hillman is reportedly ahead of C.J. Anderson for the backup job, so stay tuned.


Ball "vastly improved" in passing game
Broncos have cleared the way for second-year RB to shine
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 17, 5:20 pm

Denver Broncos
If youíre looking for a player for whom the Broncos have cleared the way to shine most, itís Montee Ball, who was the most effective runner in Denver with the ball in his hands over the last six weeks of the season/postseason. Heís smart and has the requisite work ethic, and the Broncos have seen vast improvements in his work as both a receiver and blocker in the passing game. That gives him the gotta-have-it, every-down potential in their offense. The Broncos arenít looking to run the ball significantly more than they did in 2013, but when they do, they want to move the chains more efficiently. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Ball's current ADP of 1.12 seems like a steep price to pay for an "unproven" lead or feature back, but it is not an unfair one for a player that is a better all-around performer than Knowshon Moreno, who was a top-five back in most formats in 2013. The Broncos are probably hoping Ball is able to effectively handle 75 percent of the snaps, only sprinkling in C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman in blowouts or when Ball needs a breather.
