2015 Outlook
Drafted to be ďthe guyĒ in 2013, second-round pick Montee Ball has yet to show up as the elite fantasy running back that many hoped he would develop into. Through two NFL seasons, he has rushed for a total of just 731 yards and five touchdowns. His 2014 season was cut short by an injury, but with 3.1 yards per carry up to that point, itís hard to really be excited about what he would have done if he would have stayed healthy. Ball now heads into the 2015 season with a chip on his shoulder, hoping to regain his status as the teamís top running back. With Anderson anointed as the starter going into the season, Ball currently finds himself competing with Ronnie Hillman to be the primary backup to Anderson. Hillman hasnít been particularly impressive thus far in his career either, so itís not surprising to see most reports indicating that Ball has the upper edge going into the preseason, but this is one of the more interesting battles to watch heading into the year. Whoever wins the job should be considered one of the elite handcuffs in all of fantasy football.

Ball was a first or second round fantasy draft pick in most drafts this past season, which could leave a sour taste in many fantasy ownersí minds heading into 2015. His disappointing production was short-lived as he lasted only four games, but the headache of dealing with an emergency appendectomy and then a groin injury has to be weighing heavily on the minds of those who selected him a season ago. Because of that, Ball could slip further than he otherwise would even if he does win the RB2 job in Denver. He wonít likely provide much value unless Anderson goes down, but being the handcuff in a Kubiak offense has worked out very well for players like Ben Tate in the past, who have put up monster numbers when given the opportunity.
News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Packers work out RB Montee Ball
Green Bay desperate for rushing help
By: John Canario | Fri Dec 4, 5:25 pm

Green Bay Packers
The Packers are clearly searching for answers in their running game, and Friday they worked out former Broncos running back Montee Ball. ESPNís Field Yates first reported Ballís workout. A second-round pick in 2013, Ball was released by the Broncos in the preseason. He had one touchdown run last season. The Packers started James Starks at running back in Thursday nightís win over the Lions despite Eddie Lacy having posted consecutive 100-yard games. Aaron Rodgers led the team in rushing in the game with 27 yards. (NBC Sports)

FFToday's Take: Even if the Packers sign Ball, there's no guarantee that he'll usurp James Starks or Eddie Lacy as the team's new lead back. Forget about Ball, unless you have space on your bench for a low-chance flier that's unlikely to pay dividends.
