Broncos see 'vast improvements' in RB Montee Ball


Broncos see 'vast improvements' in RB Montee Ball's Jeff Legwold reports that the Broncos "have seen vast improvements in [Ball's] work as both a receiver and blocker in the passing game." Legwold says that Ball has every-down potential in the Broncos offense. Ball took 120 carries for 559 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season. He also added 145 yards on 20 receptions. Knowshon Moreno, Denver's leading rusher in 2013, left the team this offseason to sign with the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Analysis:

It certainly looks like Ball is set to be "the guy" in Denver. His production last year was solid enough, but he'll need to improve greatly if he's going to justify the RB1 status he's currently being awarded in drafts. As Legwold mentions in his piece, the Broncos don't plan to expand their running game much this year. The allure of a Broncos running back, rather, are the open looks they'll get from defenses, and the garbage time runs to be had at the end of a game as the Broncos run out the clock. If Ball does indeed fill an every-down role in Denver, he'll open the season as a no-question fantasy starter.
