Broncos released RB Willis McGahee.

Fantasy Impact: 

With McGahee gone, Montee Ball is the logical option as the team's main ballcarrier, but HC John Fox has always favored veterans over rookies when given the choice, so this still may become a muddled RBBC with Ball, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno all in the mix. Keep in mind that Hillman has been first in line for reps at minicamp, but that's probably just a courtesy. He figures to serve as a change-of-pace back in 2013. Peyton Manning recently said that the team is going to count on Ball 'in a big way' in 2013. We definitely like Ball more with this news, though Hillman will be a factor. Consider Ball a RB2 with upside. McGahee could have some value if he lands in a great situation.
