    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed for 69 yards in the team's Week 1 game, but 55 of those yards came after contact.

    Huddle Up: Ball definitely demonstrated a lot of fight and determination, but he could also use some better blocking up front as he still only averaged 2.9 yards per carry overall on the night.

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) continues to do more work in practice each day, but most of his work continues to be outside of the team structure. However, he was wearing pads and working individually with QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, Aug. 20, and his workload is scheduled to increase. Ball might be ready to get some action in the preseason finale.

    Huddle Up: Ball looks ready to roll for Week 1. He could actually end up being a bit of a bargain at his Round 2 ADP. Ball will see a majority of the touches in Denver's backfield this season and put up big fantasy numbers.

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) has received full medical clearance, but did not participate in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: This counters an earlier news item which said Ball was a practice participant Tuesday, but it sounds like the Broncos are taking the cautious road with their starting RB. Don't expect to see him in a game prior to the Sept. 7 regular-season opener.

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) participated in drills with a helmet on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Despite his appendectomy, Ball remains a hot commodity in fantasy drafts, and his return to the practice field two weeks after the procedure is welcome news to a number of fantasy GMs. It remains very iffy, though, that the Broncos will green light their No. 1 back to play in either of the two remaining preseason contests.

  • Posted: 8/18/2014 9:42am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is making good progress and said there is a chance he could return to practice at some point this week.

    Huddle Up: Ball's fantasy value has slipped into the second round since news of his appendix surgery broke; his return to the practice field likely vaults him back into the first round, as the Broncos have made no moves to replace or insure him other than what's currently on their roster.

  • Posted: 8/14/2014 6:56pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) was doing some jogging during practice Thursday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Ball's surgery was Aug. 4, and although not ideal for the Broncos or his fantasy owners, his next game action might not come until the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against Indy.

  • Posted: 8/9/2014 12:28pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is in attendance at practice Saturday, Aug. 9, and said he is feeling better after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

    Huddle Up: Ball is still on pace to start Week 1 for the Broncos. He remains a first-round fantasy draft pick, despite his surgery. Ronnie Hillman has a solid lead to be Ball's backup and should be drafted as his handcuff.

  • Posted: 8/4/2014 2:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) will undergo an appendectomy Monday, Aug. 4, but is expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener against Indianapolis, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's a setback and something to monitor but not an injury to panic over. Ball should still be ready for the opener and his status as a RB1 in the Broncos offense is secure. This does put extra focus on the battle between Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson to be Ball's backup, however. Hillman has been having a tremendous camp and enters the preseason with a slight lead over Anderson for the No. 2 job.

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball appeared to show the most improvement in his game as a receiver during OTAs. He also displayed improved footwork during workouts and better positioning during pass protection.

    Huddle Up: Ball is a better pure runner than predecessor Knowshon Moreno and if he can approach Moreno's pass-catching and pass-blocking prowess after hauling in 20 receptions as a rookie last season, he'll be a fantasy beast.

  • Posted: 6/10/2014 7:19pm ET

    The Denver Broncos will stick with RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman for now, according to general manager John Elway.

    Huddle Up: 382 of Ball's 559 rushing yards came during the second half of last season, and he's primed to take a huge fantasy leap with the Broncos electing to let Knowshon Moreno -- fantasy's fifth-ranked RB in 2013 -- walk away rather cheaply during free agency.

  • Posted: 5/2/2014 12:46am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball said he knows the team will not hand the starting job to him and that he will have to earn it during practice. '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.'

    Huddle Up: With fumble-prone Ronnie Hillman and 2013 rookie free-agent C.J. Anderson currently the only challengers on the Broncos' roster, it's clearly Ball's job to lose and expect the 2013 2nd-round pick to come off the board early in fantasy drafts this summer in anticipation of some monster numbers in the team's potent attack.

  • Posted: 4/16/2014 11:02am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he believes RB Montee Ball is ready to be a starting running back.

    Huddle Up: The Denver offense runs through Peyton, and if he's ready to hand off to Ball that's good news for Montee's fantasy prospects.

  • Posted: 2/13/2014 8:48pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball said he wants to start next season and receive most of the carries. He said he will believe he will have a good offseason and perform better next season.

    Huddle Up: With Knowshon Moreno a free agent, Ball has a good shot to get his wish. Ball started slow in his rookie season, but was nearly getting 50 percent of the touches in many late-season contests.

  • Posted: 11/28/2013 11:18am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball took the first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: So long as Ball hangs onto the... uh... ball, he's in line for at minimum backup duties behind Knowshon Moreno. And if Moreno is limited at all by his foot injury, Ball could be a significant fantasy contributor--both this week and the rest of the season.
