2014 Outlook

The appendectomy procedure that has removed Montee Ball from training camp has given an unexpected opportunity to Broncos backup running back C.J. Anderson. Anderson, an undrafted free agent who also made his NFL debut alongside Ball in 2013, has not yet won a competition against Ronnie Hillman to be the team's lead tailback until Ball returns, but appears to be the more well-rounded back, which will likely mean that he gets the majority of snaps for the time being. Anderson could hypothetically show some amazing flashes that force the Broncos' hand in giving him more playing time. The most likely scenario, however, is that he and Hillman will split carries in the preseason before conceding the lion's share of touches to Ball once the regular season begins. Both Anderson and Hillman's value is essentially tied to the success of Ball. If Ball puts the ball on the ground too often for head coach John Fox's liking or if he sustains an injury that puts him out for a long period of time, Anderson and Hillman could have value. Until then, though, both players will likely remain relatively useless for fantasy purposes.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Montee Ball likely to miss several weeks
Groin strain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 6, 6:30 pm

Denver Broncos
Broncos running back Montee Ball will not require surgery to repair the strained groin he suffered during a non-contact play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. However, Ball is expected to be sidelined several weeks, according to two NFL sources. Ball underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: While HC John Fox would only say that he would "kind of update" the media on Wednesday, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reported that the second-year back's teammates expected him to miss 2-3 weeks. Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson, who was inactive in Week 5 because he doesn't play special teams, figure to get the first shot at leading a likely committee backfield while Ball is out. Impressive UDFA Juwan Thompson could also be in the mix as well.

Injury Ball to undergo appendectomy on Monday
Expected to ready for Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 4, 4:15 pm

Broncos RB Montee Ball will undergo an appendectomy today but is expected to be ready for regular-season opener vs. Colts, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Some athletes have returned quickly from appendectomies - Titans LG Andy Levitre was cleared to practice about two weeks after his late July surgery - but the normal recovery period is 4-6 weeks. While Ball should be expected to go for the opener, it should come as a surprise if he begins the regular season a bit slow. Ronnie Hillman is reportedly ahead of C.J. Anderson for the backup job, so stay tuned.
