In Week 12, Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is going to step in with Willis McGahee going down. The Broncos' veteran feature back will be unavailable for the rest of the season, so Hillman is hoping to find his niche in the offense.
On Sunday, Hillman will face the Kansas City Chiefs. With the Chiefs underperforming, this could be a nice initiation game for HIllman.
Fantasy Analysis: While Hillman is not the durable, power-back that McGahee was, he does have some valuable attributes. In the Broncos fast-paced offense, Hillman has the speed to not only keep up, but make plays.
Unfortunately for his fantasy value, Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno will be cutting into his carries. Hillman is a solid flex option this week, but don't be surprised if he doesn't get as many touches as McGahee did.
