Broncos will rotate RBs on a 'drive-by-drive basis'
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Broncos will swap out their three running backs -- Ronnie Hillman , Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno -- on a "drive-by-drive basis, not play-by-play. Rapoport says this will be done so Peyton Manning and Co. can keep the tempo up and not be slowed down by incoming substitutions.
Hillman is expected to start, so he would presumably get the first drive, followed by Ball and then Moreno. Ball has the highest touchdown probability, so he's probably the one I would want out of this trio the most, but none of these guys are more than risky flex plays in 12-team leagues versus the Ravens on Thursday.
