Week 13: at Kansas City Chiefs
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Montee Ball was the lead running back the last time these teams faced off (Week 2), but C.J. Anderson did get in the action that day and had over six yards per carry rushing (6/31/0 rushing) vs. Kansas City. As Ball is likely out for this game due to his ongoing groin injury woes (as is his one-time replacement Ronnie Hillman, currently nursing a foot injury), we'll see Anderson back in the saddle as the starter during Week 13. Anderson tore up Miami's defense with 27/167/1 rushing and 4/28/0 receiving last week, leading the Broncos to 35/201/1 rushing as a team (Juwan Thompson had 5/33/0 rushing in a change-of-pace role). Anderson also went over 100 yards combined vs. the Rams two weeks ago (9/29/0 rushing with 8/86/0 receiving) - he's a hot fantasy property entering the stretch run into the playoffs. The Chiefs' rush D averages 129.4 yards allowed per game (26th in the NFL), with just two rushing scores given out so far this year. The two scores were coughed up last week, though, as Oakland shocked the Chiefs with 30/179/2 rushing and a 24-20 upset over K.C. Two weeks ago, the Chiefs gave up 37/204/0 rushing to the Seahawks - they are getting trampled in this phase of the game lately. Advantage, Denver.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 10 vs OAK (6 / 13 / 0 rush, 5 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
With Montee Ball still sidelined with a groin injury, Ronnie Hillman earned his fourth consecutive start against the Oakland Raiders. Unfortunately, Hillman had his worst game of the year as he was in and out of the lineup with a nagging ankle injury. The brightest part of his afternoon came when he was wide open in the flat on a goal-line play, but Peyton Manning missed him on what would have been an easy touchdown. Hillman ran gingerly and was not very effective in his limited action. Denver eventually shut him down for the day, saying after the game that the move was merely a precaution.
