Moreno finished 5th in RB points in 2013. The more talented Ball ready to replace him.
Will handle featured run/pass duties in new OC Jackson's run first scheme.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Ball as a top-10 RB is easy: the Manning effect. LY: Moreno is top 5 RB after never finishing inside top 17 in fantasy. TY: Ball is Moreno in that offense (assuming no camp surprises). Last seven games of '13: >12 FPPG average with only 12 touches per game.

Ball steps into Moreno's old role, but does it automatically mean the same stats? I still need to see more...
Gio is very much on the rise. There is tons to love about his game and role for 2014.

We expect Ball to take over this season but that being said, Moreno will still have value if the Broncos decide to keep him around.

Montee Ball looks primed for a top ten season as the only above good running back on the Broncos roster
Giovani Bernard will approach RB1 numbers this year especially in PPR formats but lost a bit of his appeal when the Bengals drafted the talented Jeremy Hill to replace BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
  
James Hatfield

Currently have to keep an eye on Moreno, but Ball has to be seen as the future of Denver's ground game. Being on a top offense is a great place to be for RB's and he will always get the garbage time bump for yards.
I love watching Gio run on the field. He is an outstanding RB talent and his PPR upside is amazing. He will be given more workload in 2014 and will see double-digit TDs.

I think Ball is going to emerge as the lead back in Denver in 2014, especially with Knowshon Moreno now in Miami. Ball showed enough in the second half of the season to make me think the Broncos have faith in him to handle the starting job next year. My concern is his pass blocking and how that could limit his time on the field or create a timeshare situation.
Bernard finished his rookie season as the 16th ranked fantasy back, despite tallying only 170 rushing attempts and 56 receptions. He should have a bigger role in the Bengals offense this year and be a Top 10 running back. Think Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice in his second year with the Ravens.
