FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: BRONCOS OFFICIALLY NAME RONNIE HILLMAN STARTING RUNNING BACK

Given the struggles of C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak officially named Ronnie Hillman as the team's starting running back going forward.  Anderson has struggled so badly that Hillman began taking at least half the carries over the last few weeks but now he will no longer even start the game. 

Analysis:  Well there you go.  We nailed this one as we said way back in July when we began previewing the season that Anderson was right at the top of our BUST lists given the fluky nature of his "breakout" in 2014.  While Anderson was excellent early on, his YRC average went under 4.0 in December.  That carried over to this season as Anderson was simply brutal from the start.  Given his late first round grade, Anderson already goes down as a colossal bust.  Meanwhile Hillman we noted over the summer would become the starter eventually and here we are.  He was terrific when he replaced Montee Ball early last season until getting injured.  Hillman can be every bit the difference-maker the rest of the way as Anderson was last season.
