Peyton: Montee Ball can handle new role
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said running back Montee Ball has a great opportunity now that Knowshon Moreno is gone as a free agent to Miami.

"I thought Montee had a great year," Manning said. "I thought he learned a lot in his first year. In my past, I've seen a lot of development in guys from their first year to their second year. There is no question with the loss of Knowshon — who was just nothing short of awesome for us this past year and was a great teammate — that Montee is going to have more responsibilities, and I think he will answer that challenge. I think he has the work ethic, I think he has the mental capabilities to handle the workload and I look forward to having a full offseason with him. He didn't have a full one last year because of being a rookie, so I look forward to getting even closer with him as far as being on the same page."

No Knowshon means no roadblock for Montee Ball
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

I'd like to extend my best wishes to Knowshon Moreno on reportedly agreeing to terms with the Dolphins on a one-year deal. But it's mainly because a situation that could have been complicated is now pretty crystal clear: Montee Ball is the Broncos' sure-fire running back this season. 

In an upcoming story here on CBSSports.com I wrote about Ball and what was good and bad about his game. While I don't think he's an exceptional, rare running back talent, the fact is that he's a very good back with the most golden of opportunities in the NFL: working alongside Peyton Manning. 

Moreno's 2013 season is the perfect example: Like Ball, he's a good running back but no one will confuse him for Walter Payton. But because he worked in an offense with one of the best quarterbacks in the league and a passing game that featured so many dangerous threats, he overachieved. Ball is now in line for the exact same thing. 

Ball is now in my Top 12 among running backs and figures to be a Top 20 pick (if not Top 15 pick) in drafts this summer.

Montee Ball staring at huge opportunity
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Knowshon Moreno headed to the Dolphins, Montee Ball should enter the season as the Broncos' starting running back. It's a huge opportunity, as he'll get plenty of scoring opportunities in the league's top offense. 

Ball will run against nickel and dime defenses designed to contain Peyton Manning and the passing game. Broncos coach John Fox recently called Ball "a tremendous young player" who improved a lot as his rookie year progressed.

To lock up his starting spot, Ball will have to beat out C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman and possibly a rookie.

Fox wants Montee Ball to make 'good leaps'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos coach John Fox said at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday that he has high expectations for second-year running back Montee Ball.

"He's a tremendous young player," Fox said. "He improved a lot — we needed him to a year ago. I thought he turned into a pro. He understands how to prepare. Sometimes that may take a while. It didn't take him as long. We're looking for him to make good leaps."

Montee Ball's strong finish has Broncos excited
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

After losing a critical fumble Week 12 at the Patriots, Broncos running back Montee Ball finished strong, averaging 5.4 yards over his next 73 carries. He also steadily improved in pass protection.

"He realized how critical every time you touch the ball is in the NFL," running backs coach Eric Studesville told the team's website. "Not that it wasn't important before that, but I think sometimes maybe, it's a little bit of an eye-opener."

Ball is preparing to take over for Knowshon Moreno as Denver's lead back.
