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 @MrHillman2U, Montee Ball, Knowshon Moreno @knowshonmoreno -- 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.

Fantasy Analysis:

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.
