Summary

Ronnie Hillman was an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but there was little interest in his services. He returned to the Broncos on a one-year deal, but the speedy change-of-pace back is no lock for the final roster. Hillman led the team in rushing last year, but he's clearly going to take a back seat to C.J. Anderson this season. Even rookie Devontae Booker may beat out Hillman for the primary backup job behind Anderson. If he makes the team, Hillman gives the team veteran depth and a potential spot starter in case of emergency. (May 17)

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman the favorite for backup (Mon Jun 20, 05:37 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is still ahead of RB Devontae Booker to back up RB C.J. Anderson, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com. RB Kapri Bibbs will also compete with Hillman and Booker for backup duties.

Our View: Hillman led the team in rushing last year, but they let him hit the free agent market where he got very little interest. The Broncos brought back Hillman, but only after they paid C.J. Anderson with a much larger deal. Hillman has speed, but in the postseason it was Anderson who led the league in rushing. Anderson should be the team's bellcow, and Hillman is no lock to be his primary backup.

Broncos | Devontae Booker to push for RB2 (Mon Jun 20, 08:45 AM) - Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) ran well after he recovered from a torn meniscus and appears poised to push RB Ronnie Hillman for the No. 2 running back job.

Our View: Booker is a talented all-purpose back. He can make his living between the tackles, is tough to bring down with arm tackles and he's a fantastic receiver out of the backfield. The Broncos are unlikely to use a RBBC this year with C.J. Anderson getting a contract that makes him the third-highest paid RB in 2016. Booker has starter's upside, but fantasy owners should consider him a three-down-back-in-waiting to begin the season. With Anderson's injury history, Booker is a must-handcuff.
