What's next for Juwan Thompson, C.J. Anderson?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos got a great game out of Ronnie Hillman at the Jets in Week 6, giving him 27 total touches. Juwan Thompson had eight carries in the game for 38 yards along with a catch for no yards while C.J. Anderson was active but didn't get any touches. 

For now it looks like Hillman will be the top back in the Broncos offense. The leash could remain short with him -- he had a fumble that was recovered by a teammate in the game. Thompson and Anderson could end up getting work if Hillman falters. But that's not exactly the best reason to carry either back in Fantasy moving forward. Thompson seems to have more appeal than Anderson at this point.

Broncos might take 'hot hand' approach to doling out carries
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

An injury to featured back Montee Ball has clouded the running back situation for the Broncos. It might not get cleared up Sunday against the host Jets, but a hot hand at that position could allow one back to emerge moving forward, per the team website.

Among the possibilities is Juwan Thompson, who has been declared probable despite a knee issue. He earned his first three carries of the season in Week 5. Thompson is expected to get extended reps, but so are Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson, who suggested Thursday that the one who proves to be the best of the bunch early will likely receive the most carries.

Broncos running backs no sure thing vs. jets
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Broncos have had one of the least effective running games in the league, but there is some hope that the ascension of Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson to larger roles will turn things around. What are the chances that happens in Week 6, with a tough matchup against the Jets on the way?

The Jets fell to 11th in FootballOutsiders.com's DVOA against the run in Week 5, after the Chargers ripped through them for 162 yards on the ground. However, in four games prior, the Jets allowed just 63.3 yards per game on the ground, with no running backs reaching double figures in Fantasy scoring against them.

Hillman ran the ball well for the Broncos last week against a tough Cardinals defense, but there is no telling whether he will be able to keep that up against New York. He should be worth starting in most Fantasy leagues even with the tough matchup, but temper expectations, especially with Anderson looming as a potential part-time player.

Report: Broncos' Montee Ball to miss 'couple of weeks' with groin strain
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Broncos running back Montee Ball will not need surgery to repair a strained groin suffered in Week 5 against Arizona, the Denver Post reports. The injury is expected to keep him sidelined for a "couple of weeks," multiple sources told the paper on Monday.

Ball was averaging 3.1 yards per carry before sustaining the injury on a non-contact play in the third quarter. The team will likely turn to Ronnie Hillman while Ball recovers from his ailment. Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson could also see some work Week 6 at N.Y. Jets.
