Lance Ball Fantasy Stats: Denver Broncos RB Has Little Impact

Denver Broncos running back Lance Ball didn't get the start on Thursday evening against the New York Jets, as Willis McGahee did start. But neither offered much of a fantasy impact. Ball had five carries for 18 yards as part of a poor rushing game by the Broncos. He did catch two passes for 26 yards, both second best among those who caught balls from Tim Tebow.

Ball had rushed for 96 yards on 30 carries last week against the Kansas City Chiefs once McGahee and Knowshon Moreno went down. Ball is in a decent, if risky, fantasy position as he will surely get carries each week given the run-heavy nature of the Broncos. With Knowshon Moreno out with a torn ACL, Ball will be the backup for the remainder of the season. He is worth holding onto for at least another week to monitor whether he really does get enough carries to stay on a fantasy roster.
