Broncos' Hillman misses several TD chances despite 100-yard game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman cracked the 100-yard mark for the second time in three games, but was held out of the end zone in a 35-21 victory over the Chargers in Week 7.

Hillman nearly got into the end zone on the opening drive of the second half. He caught a short pass for an 8-yard gain and barely stepped out of bounds at the 3-yard line. Emmanuel Sanders caught his third touchdown of the night a few plays later. Hillman then ripped a 33-yard touchdown run on the ensuing drive, only to be wiped out by a holding penalty. His running mate, Juwan Thompson, scored a pair of goal line touchdowns lined up ahead of Hillman as a fullback.

Hillman still had a productive night, rushing for 109 yards on 20 carries, averaging 5.5 yards per attempt. He also caught three of four targets for 29 yards. He has 283 yards on the ground over his first three games since taking over for an injured Montee Ball.

He'll look for his third 100-yard game at New England in Week 9.

Time to turn Ronnie Hillman loose on the world
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In his first game replacing injured Broncos running back Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman went up against a Jets defense that at the time ranked in the top five against the run ... and turned in the best individual rushing performance for any Bronco this season, picking up 100 yards on 24 carries. In his second game replacing the injured Ball Week 7 against the 49ers, Hillman went up against a defense that ranked seventh against the run ... and ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns.

If you're like me, you didn't start him for either game because you didn't trust someone so unproven with a matchup so difficult. And if you're like me, you don't need to be convinced anymore.

Going against a Chargers defense in Week 8 that ranks in the middle of the pack against the run, Hillman looks like a must-start in Fantasy provided that Ball isn't ready to return from his groin injury. And even if he is, it may not be a deal-breaker. None of Ball's four games were better than the two Hillman has had.

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman scores twice in Week 7 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries and scored two touchdowns while adding 29 yards on four receptions in his team's 42-17 blowout win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Hillman scored both of his touchdowns in the third quarter, avoiding would-be tacklers on a 37-yard score up the middle on his first score. He ran with authority on the second touchdown, plowing through a linebacker on a one-yard burst into the end zone. Hillman has strung together three impressive performances in October, and he's done enough to remain in the game plan once Montee Ball heals up, potentially even as the team's No. 1 back. The Broncos will square off with the Chargers on Thursday in Week 8.

Another week, another tough matchup for Ronnie Hillman
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman went above and beyond in his first game replacing the injured Montee Ball Week 6 at the Jets, not only rushing for 100 yards to give the Broncos their best individual rushing performance of the season but also doing it against what at the time a top-five run defense.

Unfortunately, he'll have to prove himself all over again against San Francisco in Week 7. The 49ers rank seventh against the run, allowing 79.8 yards per game, and have given up the fifth-fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs this season. They limited the Eagles' LeSean McCoy to 17 yards on 10 carries in Week 3 and the Bears' Matt Forte to 21 yards on 12 carries in Week 2.

Then again, the Chiefs' Jamaal Charles and the Cowboys' DeMarco Murray did fine against them, so it's not like Hillman is an automatic sit for this matchup (in case he didn't show you that last week). But he's risky. If you need him to be your second running back, no problem, but if you're considering him for your flex spot, you might want to go with a wide receiver instead.

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman hits triple figures in Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

First start, first 100-yard game. Not a bad Sunday for Broncos new featured-back-for-now Ronnie Hillman.

Hillman racked up steady yardage from beginning to end and finished with 100 in 24 carries Sunday against the host Jets. He rushed for 52 in the first half, 48 in the second and added one catch for five yards. His previous best was 86 yards on the ground against New Orleans on Oct. 28, 2012.

He will attempt to take his momentum and run with it when Denver hosts San Francisco next Sunday.
