Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Last season, Ronnie Hillman led the team with 207 carries, 863 rushing yards and seven TDs on the ground and also caught 24 passes for 111 yards. He has looked more comfortable in the run-oriented offense than he did last year, hitting the holes with more quickness. If he doesn’t wind up keeping a roster spot with the Broncos, Ronnie has a near minimum salary, so he will likely end up somewhere.

Fantasy Downside
Despite having the most experience with the Broncos, his time with the team is very much in jeopardy. Rookie Davontae Booker has looked great in camp and the preseason and the team also has Kapri Bibbs, Juwan Thompson and Andy Janovich, a fullback, who will likely be part of the backfield.

Bottom Line
It’ll be interesting to see who Coach Gary Kubiak and his staff keeps at RB, but, even if Hillman is still wearing No. 23 in Denver, his playing time will definitely diminish, despite a run-oriented offense. Hillman is not worth a roster spot to start your fantasy season, regardless which team’s uniform he’s wearing.
