Broncos Beat: Ronnie Hillman has the hot hand - [Full Article]

Denver's RB Juwan Thompson brings power, short-yardage potential and blocking ability. But Ronnie Hillman is playing too well to be de-emphasized -- not only as a runner, but in pass protection and ball security (one fumble in 86 touches this season). You might see more from Thompson, Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson, but for the moment, Hillman has the hot hand.

Fantasy Impact: 

We've been hearing even when Ball comes back he may not have RB1 opportunities again this year because of his injuries. That could be especially true with Hillman playing as well as he is and Thompson a nice compliment as a power and short yardage back. This article said that despite Thompson's two TDs, the team likes the way Hillman is playing in all aspects of the game.
