Knowshon Moreno is out and Ronnie Hillman is in. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: If you watched the Monday Night Football game, you probably saw this coming. Moreno was terrible throughout the game by not running through holes and most importantly, he was stripped of the football by Stephen Nicholas (pictured). Ronnie Hillman will step in and he becomes someone that has a high upside for his skills out of the backfield. Obviously, we wouldn't suggest starting him, but there are worse players to stash than the rookie out of San Diego State.
