Broncos beat writer Andrew Mason answer a question about Montee Ball slow start:

Montee Ball is doing all right, given that he missed two weeks of training camp and this offensive line combination has played just two full games together.

He hit the holes well Sunday, much better than he did against Indianapolis, and did well reading the flow of the play and his blocks. If he has more games like Week 2's -- when he averaged 8.9 yards every time he touched the football -- he'll be fine.

He spoke Thursday of needing to make sure he gains three or four yards on first down. One problem in recent weeks was how many times he was met in the backfield and had to struggle just to minimize the damage; with better play up front, and perhaps more use of Virgil Green as an H-back or fullback, this might go better Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a tough matchup this week against the Seahawks, but the missed time in training camp seems to be contributing to the slow start this season. Owners should probably still with Ball as his potential is still very high.
