Broncos have faith in Montee Ball
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos are putting their faith in running back Montee Ball, reports ESPN.

The report says the Broncos view Ball as the player they "have cleared the way to shine most." The report also adds Ball earned that optimism by how he played down the stretch last season.

He was the most effective runner with the ball in his hands over the last six weeks of the season/postseason. The Broncos have seen vast improvements in his work as both a receiver and blocker in the passing game.

Broncos focused on improving run game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Broncos made several offseason moves designed to improve their running game, reports ESPN.com.

They moved Orlando Franklin to left guard, giving them one of the biggest guard tandems in the league. They drafted receiver Cody Latimer, considered a terrific blocking wideout. And they let running back Knowshon Moreno go in free agency so they could hand the starting job to Montee Ball.

With defenses often playing six or fewer men in the box, Denver believes it can do better than the 4.1 yards per carry it averaged last season.

Montee Ball drawing rave reviews
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos running back Montee Ball "looks the part" of a starting running back, reports ESPN.

The report says Ball "is ready for a starring role in the run game." It also says Ball showed improvement in recent weeks was as a receiver.

"He has consistently shown he's ready to participate in long-yardage situations as a receiver, even having snared an over-the-shoulder scoring grab or two in red zone drills," the report states. "And while the jury remains out in pass protection until they put the full gear on, he's shown better footwork in the workouts and has positioned himself where he needs to be."

Coach calls Montee Ball 'most improved'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said this week that running back Montee Ball is not only locked into a starting role but also has grown into his role and improved this offseason.  

"Big strides," Gase said of Ball via a Denver Post video. "I'd say he'd probably be the one guy where he made the most improvement. To see him make the next jump in his second year, we're looking forward to that. ... He brings that full package of good running back, running the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield and protecting."

When asked who was battling for the backup job, Gase said it was wide open among "everybody behind Montee."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the 130th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected running back James White from Wisconsin.

White spent his first three seasons at Wisconsin behind Montee Ball. When he took over in 2013, he amassed for 1,444 yards on 221 carries with 13 touchdowns on the ground. He also posted 39 receptions for 300 yards and two scores in the passing game. He will likely battle for the third -string spot behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.
