Fantasy High 5 is Gridiron Experts weekly article where we debate and discuss popular fantasy football topics and buzzing stories from around the NFL. Typically Fantasy High 5 is a piece that comes out on Wednesday’s, but we’re going to blame the late publishing on eating too much turkey this week. This week we dive into the running back shake up for the Broncos, Waiver wire strategies and what to do with the Law Firm in Cincinnati moving forward.
What is your fantasy analysis of Broncos Ronnie Hillman?
Jody Smith: Small back with excellent hands and good speed. Very good fit in a Manning offense, but being undersized will mean he won’t carry on the goal line (Lance Ball will likely get those runs). Blocking is a work in progress but getting better. Should see 60-70% of the snaps.
Mike Rodriguez: Young, talented RB, but small. His fantasy value hinges on his blocking abilities. If Hillman can’t pick up the blitz Peyton Manning will quickly want to swap him out for a guy who can. Hil...

For the first time since October, both cornerback Tracy Porter and offensive guard Chris Kuper could be out on the field on Sunday.
When the Broncos take on the Chiefs this weekend, Porter (illness) and Kuper (ankle) should be able to play.
Both players fully participated in practice throughout week and Porter was cleared to play on...
When voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl, fans can vote for Denver Broncos middle linebacker Keith Brooking twice on the same ballot.
In a possible glitch on NFL.com, the Pro Bowl ballot has Brooking listed both as an ILB—inside linebacker—and OLB—outside linebacker—for the Broncos. Denver’s two other OLBs listed are Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard.
The Broncos were presumably...
Peyton Manning has been doing his job for a long time, but the past year has to have been the hardest of his brilliant career.
Overcoming two neck surgeries within a year, extensive rehabilitation, and leaving his longtime home Indianapolis for Denver had to be challenging.
Manning doesn't want to hear excuses, he hasn't made any; and because of that, the Broncos sit...
Peyton Manning says he’s not trying to do the things he did at 28. Once again, he’s trying to fake everyone out. Manning is an MVP and Comeback Player of the Year candidate. The latter is pretty much a wrap.
It’s true that he isn’t trying to do the same things at 28; he had 49 touchdowns and a passer rating of 121.1. That would be ridiculous.
Maybe he was talking about...
The Broncos are looking like a Super Bowl contender. Do they have enough defense to take out the Patriots this postseason?
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
Let's take a look at week 12.

After ranking 23rd overall in 2011, the Denver Broncos offense has turned things around this season.
Last season, the Broncos ranked 25-of-32 among teams in points scored (309) and scored 30 points in a game on just two occasions. Needless to say, the Broncos have made great improvements in 2012.
This season, the Broncos have scored 30 points...
Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno will start Sunday in place of Willis McGahee but will likely lead a committee with Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball also taking carries. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPNFantasy Spin:Moreno hasn't carried the ball since Week 2. We'd stay away from this situation in fantasy leagues but if you must play one of them we'd go with Hillman.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Champ Bailey insists the script in Denver is finally going to flip this year.
For most of the last decade, the Broncos have made late-season swoons an annual rite of winter in the Rocky Mountains.
Altitude. Aptitude. Attitude. Whatever the reasons, the Broncos have followed strong starts...
The fast answer is yes. One way or another Patriots Offensive Coordinator will finally get the decision to draft Knowshon Moreno right after all. The back story...Josh McDaniels is terrible at drafting. McDaniels, the onetime wunderkind took over the Mike Shanahan's Denver Broncos after the 2008 season. He started off promising enough opening the 2009 [...]
No more bye weeks. It’s all up to health and strategy from here on out to get you to a fantasy football championship. Here are some updates on...
(AP) -- The Denver Broncos are comfortably atop the AFC West, but now they'll have to replace a key offensive contributor.
A dominant defense led by Von Miller should help soothe any concerns.
With Willis McGahee out, Miller and the defense could be poised for yet another dominant performance Sunday against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs.
Denver (7-3) opened a three-game lead...
