THE HILLMAN’S HAVE EYES
THE HILLMAN’S HAVE EYES
BEAST DOME NATION.
If you know anything about me as a Fantasy Football Expert. I am in love with whoever the starting RB is in Denver with the most potential. In 2012 I ranked Willis McGahee higher than every expert as he was the BEAST of all BEASTS.

MONTEE BALL BEAST ARTICLE
Now we come to a new level of the Denver Broncos RB situation. After watching Montee Ball run with less than half the aggression he was running with last season. His job is slowly starting to fade away. Ronnie Hillman is looking explosive and hitting the hole as hard as Adrian Peterson would on a handoff up the middle.
Last week on FantasyPros I ranked Ronnie Hillman the highest of any expert, as well as winning the #1 overall RB Expert for Week 7. I found my own system that will work within the FantasyPros system and I will be using it the majority of the year. Regardless, Ronnie Hillman has made a huge impact on the running game since Montee has been out.
BRONCOS RB FUTURE FOR 2014
Moving forward the Broncos RB situation is tricky. Ronnie Hillman has done too many good things to go back to the bench and stay on the bench. On the other hand, the Broncos really want Montee Ball to be their BEAST RB of the future, even though he is not showing it in 2014. The Broncos are still committed to Montee Ball in the long run, which means when Montee Ball comes back. He will have his chance to show the Broncos what type of RB he can be. With some competition, Montee will have to be a BEAST and fight off the groin injury which is sure to limit the rest of his 2014.
If you are a Montee Ball owner. Hold on tight or try to pull off a trade for a Vincent Jackson type of WR. If you do not own Montee and have WR depth, do not be afraid to throw a nice name to get this superstar at a premium buy-low. While Ronnie Hillman is exploding away with the job, Montee Ball is the future of this team and he will get every shot to show he is the guy when he returns.
In the end, you are probably looking at a 50/50 split that will limit both of their fantasy potential to a even lesser form of Trent Richardson/Ahmad Bradshaw. Montee will get his shot, but the only way Montee Ball returns to the 2nd Round draft value that you took him at is…A Ronnie Hillman fumble, just like how Montee Ball lost his job to Knowshon Moreno in 2013.
Munt. Only have room for one on the roster. Trent or Montee ROS?
Montee R.O.S. if you only have room for one, something tells me your team is a BEAST SQUAD.
Can’t argue w results…. But saw Hillman get knocked on his ass by a d lineman’s extended arm last week. Can’t see him grinding it out long term.
Montee can still be the guy, at least the goal line vulture… They did not ONCE put Hillman in as the goal line back. Had Montee not been hurt, would of been him, not Thompson and all it takes is ONE fumble from Hillman…which is likely.
what about trading Ball for Josh Gordon if i can swing it?
Team is: RGIII/Cutler – Foster/Shady/McKinnon/Ball/Tre Mason/SJax – Cobb/AJ Green/Roddy/Larry Fitz – Greg Olsen
I think they handed it off to the FB to catch the defense off guard and to keep Hillman fresh. He’s too explosive to go back to he bench. Those long runs he broke, haven’t seen that from Montee. Also Hillman would have had 2 TDs if he didnt step out of bounds after a catch, and another was called back on a holding penalty.
