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.

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.

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.

The Denver Broncos will give RB Montee Ball every opportunity to earn the starting running back job at some point this season.

Huddle Up: Either the Broncos are underselling Ball's role with the club ("opportunity to earn", "at some point") or the fantasy community is dramatically overestimating Ball's expected production this year. Couple the above with news that Knowshon Moreno is expected to be Denver's third down back and suddenly Ball is looking like a bit of a reach in the third and fourth rounds, where he's typically going off the board in redraft leagues. Hopefully your draft or auction won't take place until we've seen a chunk of the Broncos' training camp and preseason and been able to construct a more informed opinion of what Ball's role is likely to be.

The Denver Broncos signed RB Montee Ball Thursday, June 13. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Huddle Up: Ball struck a deal on the very day veteran starter Willis McGahee was released. Coincidence? We think not as the second-round pick is expected to be the Broncos' Week 1 starter. Even so, second-year back Ronnie Hillman and vet Knowshon Moreno still could see plenty of action as well so resist the temptation to place Ball too high on your fantasy draft board.

Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway and head coach John Fox expect RB Montee Ball to compete for a starting job amongst RBs Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman this year. The team envisions Ball as an every-down back in the NFL. 'We expect all these guys to contribute,' Elway said. 'The earlier you go, the more we hope they contribute.'

Huddle Up: If Ball can display some decent pass blocking and catch some swing passes out of the backfield during the preseason, he should be the front-runner to start come Week 1 given the injury, age and durability concerns about the other backs on the roster.
