    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Racks up 23 total yards

    Hillman turned 11 carries into 16 yards and one catch (on two targets) into seven yards during Sunday's AFC championship game victory against the Patriots. The Broncos have consistently fed Hillman all season, but he's surpassed 4.0 YPC just once over the last seven games (including playoffs). He hasn't exactly made up for it with touchdowns (one) or multiple catches in a given game (only three times), while C.J. Anderson has maintained relevance throughout. Nevertheless, Hillman has averaged over 14 touches per contest, meaning he's a fair bet to strike in Super Bowl 50.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Inefficient in win over Steelers

    Hillman gained just 38 yards on 16 carries in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He failed to haul in his only target in the passing game. The 24-year-old led the Broncos in carries on the day, but his inefficiency resulted in C.J. Anderson nearly doubling him in yardage. Anderson also received three targets to Hillman's one, and plowed home the team's only touchdown. Hillman should continue to see his fair share of touches, but Anderson's rugged style could prove more suited to playoff football, and he could see some additional looks next week in the AFC championship game against the Patriots.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Big game helps Broncos clinch top seed

    Hillman rushed 15 times for a season-high 117 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers. He also caught two of three targets for 10 receiving yards. Backup C.J. Anderson also had a big day, rushing 15 times for 95 yards and a touchdown, as the Broncos relied on the running backs to get them back they trailed 14-6 in. With Anderson playing well of late, rushing for at least 70 yards and a touchdown in back-to-back games, Hillman will likely continue to cede carries, which obviously hurts his fantasy upside heading into the playoffs.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Collects 72 yards against Cincinnati

    Hillman rushed for 35 yards on nine carries and chipped in four receptions for another 37 yards in Monday's win over the Bengals. Hillman has led Denver's backs in touches in six of the past seven games, but has scored just twice in that span and not since Week 12's win over New England. The fleet-footed back is a perfect fit for Gary Kubiak's inside-outside zone scheme, but his fantasy value is diminished as he is a threat to lose touchdowns to C.J. Anderson, who has scored thrice in his last four games, and fumble as he has three times in the last five contests.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: 48 yards in loss

    Hillman rushed 14 times for 48 yards but lost a fumble during Sunday's loss to the Steelers. While the performance was hardly productive, Hillman saw significantly more action than C.J. Anderson, who rushed four times for 14 yards and caught one pass for six receiving yards. The Broncos did most of their damage through the air, as quarterback Brock Osweiler passed for 296 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for a score. Hillman continues to be the starter in Denver, but he's failed to reach even 60 rushing yards in four consecutive games. Up next is a Week 16 home game against the Bengals, who have allowed the third-fewest rushing touchdowns this season.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Runs for just 20 yards on 12 carries

    Hillman ran for just 20 yards on 12 carries and caught seven of nine targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 15-12 loss to the Raiders. Hillman failed to take advantage of the fact that C.J. Anderson (ankle) was active but available only in an emergency situation. He had an 11-yard run at one point, but was absolutely bottled up on his other 11 rushes. The speedy RB was able to rack up some receptions in the fourth quarter, to somewhat salvage his fantasy game. It remains to be seen if Anderson will be ready next week at Pittsburgh, but Hillman should be involved regardless.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Listed as active Sunday

    Hillman (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Per ESPN's Jeff Legwold, Hillman is slated to start at running back for the Broncos on Sunday, with Juwan Thompson on track to work as the team's No. 2 back, while C.J. Anderson is in uniform, but "would only be used if needed in the game."

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Could have heavy workload Sunday

    Hillman (foot) is expected to start Sunday against the Raiders, while C.J. Anderson (ankle) will be very limited, if he plays at all, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Friday that he expected Hillman to start despite being listed as questionable, so it's certainly a plus that he didn't suffer any setbacks before Sunday. Anderson was unable to practice this week due to his injury, which could lead to a heavy workload for Hillman is the former is unable to play. Neither back played well against the Raiders when they played in Week 5, though the running game has been much different with Brock Osweiler under center.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Set to start, per Kubiak

    Coach Gary Kubiak relayed Friday that Hillman (foot) "looks fine" and will start at running back for the Broncos in Sunday's game against the Raiders. Per the Denver Post, Hillman is slated to draw a questionable injury designation this week, but with Kubiak noting that Hillman will start, the focus turns to whether or not fellow RB C.J. Anderson (ankle, questionable) will be available to the Broncos this weekend, after not practicing this week. If he is unable to go Sunday, Juwan Thompson would be in line to see added snaps in tandem with Hillman.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Misses Thursday's practice

    Hillman (foot) did not practice Thursday. Nor did fellow RB C.J. Anderson, with the report noting that Hillman did "a little bit" of work during the walk-through period prior to Thursday's practice, per coach Gary Kubiak. On the plus side, Kubiak also noted that both backs are candidates to return to practice in some capacity Friday, which suggests that either player, or both, could potentially suit up Sunday against the Raiders.
