Montee Ball expects to regain Broncos starting RB job

Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball is coming off a season to forget after having an emergency appendectomy in August and suffering a torn right groin that landed him on injured reserve. Ball had just 172 yards on 55 carries for a 3.1-yard average and a single TD in 2014. But the third-year running back predicts that 2015 will be his year, and he’ll surpass  C.J. Anderson and Ronnie...

Ball envisions regaining Broncos' starting running back job

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Montee Ball is confident his current comeback will turn out just like the last one. As a sophomore at Wisconsin in 2010, Ball leapfrogged John Clay and James White on an October afternoon at Iowa and scored the winning TD in the closing minutes of a 31-30 win. It came just one week after he'd sat out a big win over top-ranked Ohio State, but he'd never back...

The Real Deal? Why CJ Anderson isn't another Montee Ball

Entering the 2014 fantasy draft, Montee Ball was being scooped up early by fantasy owners who thought they had found the next big thing.  Those that expected RB1 numbers from Ball were sadly mistaken, as a season of injuries and the emergence of CJ Anderson caused him to finish as the 90th RB overall in standard scoring behind teammates CJ Anderson (11th overall) and Ronnie Hillman...

C.J. Anderson remains humble despite recent success

C.J. Anderson burst onto the scene in 2014 at a time when injuries were piling up in the backfield. Projected preseason starter Montee Ball was out and Ronnie Hillman was banged up and struggling as the main back. Then the second year, undrafted bowling ball out of the University of California-Berkeley got his shot. Anderson, who barely made the roster the year before, exploded...

Broncos: Who Should Start at Running Back in 2015?

When talking about positions within the system new head coach Gary Kubiak is bringing in, running back could be the most important. With a lot of zone style run plays, running backs must be able to read their holes and make cuts when needed.

Gary Kubiak: C.J. Anderson will enter OTAs as Broncos’ starting RB

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports C.J. Anderson will enter the Denver Broncos offseason program as the No. 1 running back. “He made a big jump as a player, and I think he’s earned the right to walk in to the offseason program — the OTAs — and line up as our starter,” head coach Gary Kubiak told the team’s website. “But he’s got to continue to earn it on a daily basis...

Therefore, it is not surprising to hear reports that the Broncos intend to have Anderson enter OTA’s as the team’s starter. Head coach Gary Kubiak discussed Anderson’s progress and his...

Should the Denver Broncos consider a RB during free agency?

Heading into last season, the general consensus in the NFL was that running the football isn’t as important as it used to be. More and more teams were employing a running-back-by-committee approach than ever before. The day and age of the dominant, every-down back seemed to be a thing of the past. But that may be about to change, as everything in the NFL is cyclical. The production...
