Montee Ball pleases fantasy football owners with two touchdowns against Chiefs

Justin Edmonds

Ball had a breakout game against one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball had his most productive game as a pro in a 27-17 win over the Kansas Chiefs on Sunday Night Football in Week 11.

The rookie only rushed for 25 yards, but he scored two touchdowns for the Broncos, who were held in check offensively by the Chiefs tough defense. Ball stole enough snaps from Knowshon Moreno, especially down near the goal line, to turn in an impressive final stat line. He added 16 receiving yards on three catches to his totals.

Fantasy spin: Ball is definitely going to be a useful fantasy option going forward. He appears to have wrestled away enough carries from Moreno to put up numbers fantasy owners can be happy with. If he continues to get goal line carries, his value will skyrocket.

Consider Ball a low-end No. 2 running back with the upside to become an every week starter if Moreno goes down with an injury at any point the rest of the season.
