Running back Knowshon Moreno will be fighting for a roster spot with the Broncos in training camp, according to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. Fantasy Spin: Moreno has displayed terrible durability so far in his NFL career since being selected with the No. 12 pick in the 2009 Draft, and has also proven he cannot handle a featured role in Denvers offense. Willis McGahee and rookie Ronnie Hillman are projected to hold the top two spots on the depth chart, with Moreno battling Lance Ball and Mario Fannin for the No. 3 role. As a side note, Hillman is expected to contribute right away, and impressed the Broncos with his flashy receiving skills in OTAs. The third-rounder out of San Diego St. will be a hot ticket in the late rounds of fantasy drafts, while Morenos stock is on the decline.
