Week 3 bust alert: Montee Ball
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/14) We hope Montee Ball fares better than Eddie Lacy and Ryan Mathews this week since the Seahawks have knocked both running backs out in consecutive weeks.

Lacy suffered a concussion and Mathews was carted off with a knee injury. Ball has been OK at best through two games. He had 23 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 16 yards in Week 1 against the Colts and 12 carries for 60 yards and three catches for 29 yards in Week 2 against the Chiefs.

We know Seattle is a tough place to play and only two running backs in the past nine games there have reached double digits in Fantasy points -- Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew and Tampa Bay's Mike James.

If the Broncos are going to win this game it will be with Peyton Manning, not Ball. We would sit Ball if possible in this matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Montee Ball totals 89 yards in win vs. Chiefs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/14) Broncos running back Montee Ball rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries and gained 29 yards while catching all three of his targets in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

The Broncos had the ball for less than 24 minutes and were held under 50 offensive plays thanks in large part to a 10-minute drive by the Chiefs to open the second half. Otherwise, Ball surely would have seen more work in the second half with the Broncos up. He out-touched backup C.J. Anderson 15-5 in the win.

Ball looked better with the ball against the Chiefs than he did in Week 1, averaging five yards per rush after falling short of three yards per rush in his first game. He faces a tough matchup in Week 3, with the Broncos heading to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.

Montee Ball grinds it out on 25 touches
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/14) Broncos running back Montee Ball carried the load Sunday night against the Colts. He ran 23 times for 67 yards (2.9 ypc) and caught both his targets for 16 yards in the 31-24 victory.

Ball struggled to break loose following a 15-yard gain on his first carry. But he ran hard and showed tremendous second effort on his fourth-quarter touchdown run, shedding a tackle in the backfield to score from 3 yards out.

The Colts knew Denver was going to run the ball with a big lead, so Ball's yards per carry shouldn't be held against him. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry last season.

Ball faces the Chiefs in Week 2.

Montee Ball to get heavy workload Week 1
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/14) Broncos running back Montee Ball allayed any concerns about his health in the third preseason game. Nineteen days after undergoing an appendectomy, Ball touched the ball on Denver's first five plays from scrimmage. He got eight touches on the opening drive versus Houston and emerged "none the worse for the wear," per the team's website.

Ball is primed for a heavy workload Sunday night. For one thing, primary backup Ronnie Hillman is not 100 percent. Hillman came down with an undisclosed illness late last week and was taken to a hospital. He returned to practice Monday but was limited.

Ball averaged a healthy 4.7 yards per carry as a rookie, but his finish was especially impressive. After losing a fumble Week 12 at New England, Ball averaged 5.4 yards over his final 73 carries and earned trust as a pass protector.

Ball's strong finish convinced the Broncos to let Knowshon Moreno go. They didn't bring in anyone to challenge Ball.

His first start comes against a Colts defense that ranked 26th in Fantasy points allowed to running backs (19.78) last year. Consider Ball a borderline top-5 option.

Montee Ball 'none the worse for the wear'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/14) Playing 19 days after an appendectomy, Broncos running back Montee Ball "sustained some hits" and emerged "none the worse for the wear," reports the team's website. Ball got eight touches on the opening drive against Houston.
