Ronnie Hillman still working on pass protection, fantasy value remains nil

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos are continuing to work with rookie Ronnie Hillman on his pass blocking. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Denver Broncos are continuing to work with RB Ronnie Hillman on his pass protection. Hillman missed a key block that led to a Peyton Manning sack in Sunday's win over the Ravens, and OC Mike McCoy admits he's still raw in that facet of the game: "He's been working hard. And technique-wise, there's some little things that we're teaching him to do so he'll get better with time."

Hillman has 279 rushing yards and one TD on just 3.7 YPC this season.

Fantasy Impact: Hillman was targeted as a fantasy sleeper when Willis McGahee went down for the season, but Knowshon Moreno took the starting job and never looked back.

Hillman is no longer a fantasy option this season, but he has a lot of talent and could play a bigger role in 2013. Keeper/Dynasty players should be coveting him.
