Ronnie Hillman sat out Denver Broncos practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ronnie Hillman sat out Denver Broncos practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury, the Denver Post reports. The rookie running back out of San Diego State could miss the team's second preseason game Saturday against the Seattle Seahawks as a result. Hillman aggravated the hamstring Tuesday after missing the preseason opener due to the injury.

Analysis: Hillman is vying for a role in the Broncos' running game among a stable of veteran and/or injure prone ball carriers. Willis McGahee is the nominal starter, followed by Lance Ball. Hillman is listed third on the depth chart, one spot ahead of Knowshon Moreno. The rookie certainly has the talent necessary to garner carries. He'll need to stay on the field if he wants to prove his worth, however. Hillman is a potential sleeper considering what should be a very supportive passing game and his potential to climb the depth chart, but he probably isn't worth a draft-day flyer.
