    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is facing a battle for a roster spot, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is getting competition from rookie RB Devontae Booker and RB Kapri Bibbs for the right to back up starter RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman is expected to see plenty of action in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Ronnie is in a battle, a helluva a battle with Kapri and Book right now,' Kubiak said Monday, Aug. 15. 'There's no way around that. I'm just being honest with you.'

    Huddle Up: The Broncos drafted Booker in the fourth round and he's been impressive during camp, so he's safe. The final roster spot will likely come down to either Hillman or Bibbs. Hillman doesn't play special teams, so that's a strike against him. Whatever happens with Hillman, Booker is the favorite to open the season as Anderson's backup.

    Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman and Devontae Booker are listed as co-backups behind RB C.J. Anderson in Denver's initial depth chart.

    Huddle Up: Hillman has seen more time with the second-team offense so far in camp but most Denver beat writers believe Booker will win the backup job eventually. The more likely scenario is both backs will see touches in the Denver backfield if starter C.J. Anderson goes down.

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (back) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: Hillman took a big hit in the Broncos' first padded practice of camp Sunday, and while it's obviously still early, he'll need to get back on the field soon or risk losing more reps to promising fourth-round rookie Devontae Booker.

  • Posted: 8/1/2016 8:07am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (back) left practice and jogged to the locker room Sunday, July 31, after taking a hard hit to his back.

    Huddle Up: The injury doesn't sound too serious, but Hillman's fantasy value is on shaky ground as he tries to hold off Devontae Booker to be the main backup to C.J. Anderson. For now, Hillman is only worth a late-round pick.

  • Posted: 6/21/2016 2:13pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is still ahead of RB Devontae Booker to back up RB C.J. Anderson, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com. RB Kapri Bibbs will also compete with Hillman and Booker for backup duties.

    Huddle Up: Even though, he actually led the Broncos in rushing last season with 207 attempts and 863 yards, Hillman is perennially dismissed in many fantasy circles with GMs gravitating toward C.J. Anderson and, now, Booker, the fourth-round pick. While Anderson remains the projected starter, keep an eye on the Hillman-Booker battle for the No. 2 gig.

  • Posted: 6/20/2016 5:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) ran well after he recovered from a torn meniscus and appears poised to push RB Ronnie Hillman for the No. 2 running back job.

    Huddle Up: Hillman didn't bring much to the table last season, and if healthy Booker has the ability to not only supplant Hillman as the Broncos' pass-catching back but to horn in on CJ Anderson's action as the feature back.

  • Posted: 4/19/2016 10:05am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman re-signed to a one-year deal Monday, April 18.

    Huddle Up: Yay. Hillman swipes some touches from CJ Anderson. Everybody get excited.

  • Posted: 4/10/2016 7:42pm ET

    Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) has exchanged contract proposals with the Denver Broncos, according to two NFL sources.

    Huddle Up: Hillman -- an not C.J. Anderson -- actually was the Broncos' leading rusher last season with 863 yards and seven TDs on 207 carries but was maddeningly inconsistent with four 100-yard games but 60 or fewer in the other 12 contests. With the Broncos matching the Dolphins' 4-year, $18 million offer to Anderson last month, look for Hillman to take more of a backseat if he does re-sign.

  • Posted: 3/29/2016 11:04am ET

    Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) is one running back the Green Bay Packers have shown interest in.

    Huddle Up: The Packers worked well with a two-running back punch last season, and are specifically searching for a pass-catching back. Hillman resembles that description and is available in free agency--but not the big-ticket free agency the Packers are known for avoiding.

  • Posted: 12/2/2015 6:30pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman remains the starting running back, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

    Huddle Up: Hillman has been effective with either 100 rushing yards or a TD in his last three outings, but backup C.J. Anderson seems to be finding his stride late in the season as he did a year ago and don't be surprised if he winds up with more touches than Hillman as was the case a week ago.

  • Posted: 11/19/2015 6:30pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will remain the starter again in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, but RB C.J. Anderson will also see time.

    Huddle Up: Hillman received 13 touches to Anderson's two last week and has scored in fantasy double digits in three of his last four games, but the Broncos' ground game remains inconsistent. Perhaps the QB change will lead to a bump in production.

  • Posted: 11/11/2015 8:06pm ET

    Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: The fantasy headache known as the Broncos' backfield continues. If you have to start Hillman or Anderson, hope one of them gets the hot hand. The more likely scenario is both backs will see touches to cancel each other out again this week.

  • Posted: 11/6/2015 4:03pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he is expected to start.

    Huddle Up: Hillman has been limited most of the practice week by the thigh injury he suffered Sunday night but figures to take his usual share of the touches alongside C.J. Anderson.

  • Posted: 11/5/2015 6:52pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

    Huddle Up: It's a little concerning to see Hillman go from a full practice Wednesday to limited participation Thursday, but coach Gary Kubiak didn't sound too concerned Thursday, saying he expects Hillman to start Sunday's game in Indy.

  • Posted: 10/21/2015 8:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will continue to see more carries than RB C.J. Anderson.

    Huddle Up: Hillman is coming off his second 100-yard game against the Browns last week. Both backs will see touches but Hillman is clearly the best fantasy option at this point. He's an RB2/Flex play when Denver comes off of its bye.

  • Posted: 10/7/2015 2:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is still considered the starting running back by head coach Gary Kubiak, but RB Ronnie Hillman has 'earned the right' to see more chances. The running game should continue to improve as the offensive line adapts and improves, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck. Both Anderson and Hillman will continue to be used, and whichever has the hot hand in a particular game will likely end up with a few more carries. Both Anderson and Hillman had 11 carries each in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: There's still some hope for Anderson's dejected fantasy owners, but Hillman's increased role is definitely something for added concern as he's shown more explosiveness than Anderson, most notably on his 72-yard scoring run in Week 4.
