C.J. Anderson gains 31 yards on five carries Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson picked up 31 yards on five carries in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.

Despite Ronnie Hillman being active Sunday, Anderson ran as Montee Ball's clear backup, getting five touches while Hillman didn't receive a carry or target. For the second straight week, Anderson did well with his limited opportunity. He has racked up 58 yards on just nine carries through two games, but he should have much more trouble succeeding against a tough Seattle defense in Week 3.

Ronnie Hillman the better backup bet behind Ball?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) In a projection of the Broncos 53-man roster, ESPN's Jeff Legwold wrote that rusher Ronnie Hillman would be the backup to starter Montee Ball while fellow running back C.J. Anderson wouldn't make the team. Anderson had been receiving some positive attention this offseason. 

Undrafted rookies Brennan Clay and Juwan Thompson also figure into the competition to back up Ball, and both of those players have a shot to make the roster, according to Legwold. Clay is a good pass catcher and Thompson is a bigger back who can pass protect and work on special teams. 


C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman fighting for No. 2 job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) The Broncos are going with Montee Ball as the starting running back this season, but the No. 2 job behind him is wide open.

The battle will likely come down to C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, and Anderson is pushing Hillman for the job, reports the Denver Post.

The report says "Anderson is a serious threat" to be No. 2 behind Ball even though Hillman still has the inside track.


Backup RB job in Denver 'wide open'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2014) Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase made it clear that running back Montee Ball is the starter, but everyone behind him on the depth chart is competing to be the No. 2 guy. 

"I would say everybody behind Montee right now is competing for the second spot. It's wide open," Gase said via a Denver Post video. "Whoever wants to step up and take that spot, that's what we're looking for."

C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman are the primary candidates for the job, though Jerodis Williams , Brennan Clay , Juwan Thompson and Kapri Bibbs are also on the roster. 


Starting job is Montee Ball's to lose


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) Broncos running back Montee Ball is projected as the starting running back this season ahead of C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, but he's not taking anything for granted, reports ESPN.

"I know for a fact they're not going to hand it to me, they're going to make sure we all get our opportunities throughout camp and throughout OTAs … but it's going to be who's the most productive," Ball said. "But for me, my mentality is that it is my job."

Denver can still add a running back between now and the draft to challenge Ball, but he's prepared to be the starter come Week 1.

"I don't want them to bring another running back in," Ball said. "I want it to be my job and that’s how I'm approaching it, in the most humble way possible. Like I said, I understand they’re not going to hand it to me, but I'm going to work really, really hard to contribute."


Broncos making changes at running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2014) The Broncos plan to let Knowshon Moreno leave as a free agent this offseason and go with their young running backs in Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson, reports the Denver Post.

The report says about Moreno "the Broncos appear willing to let him go in exchange for pushing second-year backs Ball and Anderson up a notch." And Ronnie Hillman will get a chance to help out as well.

The main benefactor is Ball, and the report says the "Broncos want to give Ball the first chance at becoming their No. 1 running back in 2014."

Anderson will be No. 2, and Hillman will work into the rotation as well. The Broncos will also look to bring in a veteran, and the report says free agent options include Darren McFadden, Donald Brown and James Starks.
