2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Jul-15-2014 by Rusty Reeves

Once upon a time in Denver, Ronnie Hillman looked like he could be the starter heading into the 2013 season. He was neck and neck heading into most drafts last year with Montee Ball. After they both battled a case of the "dropsies," the dream died for fantasy owners who took Hillman as the team turned to the veteran Moreno and the rest is history. Hillman enters 2014 as the backup to Ball. We don't anticipate him getting the opportunities that Ball got last year; however, he should get some garbage time action when the Broncos are way ahead. 75 to 100 carries for 300 to 400 yards with a handful of touchdowns isn't out of the question. He'll definitely be worth having on a roster simply because he is a potential backup in one of the league's most vaunted offenses. Should Ball get injured, Hillman would be an automatic starter with RB2 fantasy expectations.

Latest Update

Jul-30-14 Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman winning backup battle

Hillman has "usually been the running back up" in Broncos camp so far, according to With Broncos RB Montee Ball solidly positioned as the team's starter, Hillman and Broncos RB C.J. Anderson are in competition for the lead backup role. While many saw Anderson as the better player coming in to camp, it looks like Hillman has the edge at this point.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Denver job is Ball's to lose, so whichever player winds up with backup duties will have little more than handcuff value. Anderson missed most of last season with a knee injury, allowing Hillman the opportunity to split backup duties with Ball. Now, Anderson may be in danger of being relegated to the third string again in 2014. Anderson is currently being taken 57th among running backs, and Hillman is going undrafted. If Hillman is indeed the Denver backup, those ADP's should be reversed.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
8.12 FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - Monte Ball and Hillman will be dueling it out for the starting gig in Denver. Ball looks good and he went early in this draft. I think Hillman, who has been gaining weight and strength in the offseason, will get more touches than most think this season and he might get third down and goal line work. Hillman was a steal at 8.12 in my opinion.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
11.06 World Ranked Player #26 - This was a RB depth pick with a potential for more if Ball doesn't pick up offense quick. Hillman will have role regardless.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
11.05 FFToolbox -Scott - Here's a candidate for most improved player. He's getting 3/4ths of the reps with the starters. There's little doubt that Ball will be the starter at some point this year, probably pretty early on, but Hillman added weight in the off-season conditioning program and represents somebody I can flex every once in a while due to his value catching balls out of the backfield.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
12.08 TheHuddle - Not super stoked about Hillman but he'll get enough touches to make him worth being my RB5.
