It's not a surprise that Hillman got the nod, despite his three preseason fumbles. He took most of the first-team reps throughout training camp, with rookie Montee Ball stuck as the backup. Knowshon Moreno is No. 3 on the Broncos' depth chart, but he could be very active on passing downs. The team is rolling with a running back by committee, even if fantasy football owners don't like it.
Fantasy heads might want to pick up Thomas, who beat out Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreesen for the top spot. Thomas is the most explosive athlete of the tight end group and could get plenty of targets in the passing game, as the Broncos look to take advantage of single coverage.
