Broncos Beat: RB Ronnie Hillman will 'get the majority of snaps'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Jeff Legwold: With Montee Ball expected to miss three weeks, look for Ronnie Hillman to get the majority of snaps as the lead running back, with help from C.J. Anderson and rookie Juwan Thompson. Since Peyton Manning was signed in 2012, the Broncos' lead running back had 65 percent of the carries in 2012 (Willis McGahee), 52.3 percent in '13 (Knowshon Moreno) and 55.6 percent so far this year (Ball). Hillman should get roughly 55 percent of the carries and roughly 60 percent of the snaps as the lead guy.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a bit dangerous to assume that Hillman's snaps and touches will reach certain benchmarks based on the history with Denver running backs since we're not sure that the team has settled on Hillman as the primary guy with Ball out. Anderson and Thompson have both been involved and could see more touches than expected.

Browns running back Willis McGahee said he’s feeling “pretty good” after sustaining a concussion Dec. 8, and expects to be back this week. He was inactive Sunday and had yet to be cleared to practice after blacking out on the field after a hit in the fourth quarter against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact:

A couple of things to keep in mind here: if he plays he will likely split time with Edwin Baker, who made his debut last week and rushed for 38 yards and a TD. Also, the Browns go up against the Jets excellent run defense, so no one in this committee approach is really a good play.

Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion, knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker will pick up the slack. We expect Ogbonnaya to lead the backfield in touches against a very shaky Bears rush defense, making him a Week 15 Sneaky Start. Whittaker could surprise as well.
