Broncos RB McGahee getting cut? Or will it be Moreno?


Broncos RB McGahee getting cut? Or will it be Moreno?

Last year the Denver Broncos drafted shifty running back Ronnie Hillman. This year, they selected power back Montee Ball from Wisconsin. With that duo forming an intriguing backfield combo going forward, there is not enough room for Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno @knowshonmoreno. That stands as a primary reason why Mike Klis with the Denver Post says that barring injury it is "highly unlikely" both veterans will be with the team this upcoming season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Klis lays out a scenario that makes Moreno the better fit as Denver's third-back in that he's younger (26 vs. 32), costs less money and is a better pass catcher/thrid down back candidate. Then again at 235 pounds, McGahee has more beef than the other three. Though both he and Moreno are no strangers to injuries, McGahee's been the more effective option when on the field. As long as Ball doesn't flop during training camp, he's the one Denver runner to own, though the Moreno/McGahee survivor will be worth rostering in deeper leagues.

Both McGahee and Moreno were very productive when on the field last year. I would'nt go giving the job to the rookie just yet. Hillman showed very little last year and 1st year pros rarely have much fantasy value.
