The Denver Broncos have created a fantasy football nightmare with their crowded backfield. Knowshon Moreno emerged as the clear-cut starter with his breakout performance against the New York Giants last weekend, but Ronnie Hillman and rookie Montee Ball have still received their fair share of carries. On Tuesday night, the trio may have decided fantasy matchups with a game of rock, paper, scissors.
Hillman ripped off a 19-yard run in the fourth quarter to get the ball down to the 1-yard line. In order to decide which running back would get the chance to punch the ball in, Hillman says he played rock, paper, scissors against Ball and Moreno.
“I mean, you definitely don’t want to see anybody else go in at that point,” Hillman told Gray Caldwell of DenverBroncos.com. “We were just messing around on the sideline. Just something to do. Have fun. Luckily I won, so it all worked out.”
So there you have it. Ball has lost a fumble in two straight games and Hillman put the ball on the ground three times in preseason. You would think Moreno has earned the goal line work by default, but fantasy owners who have Hillman or Ball really just need their running backs to get better at rock, paper, scissors. That would help your team rack up more wins.
