10. Montee Ball, Denver Broncos
An emergency appendectomy added unexpected drama to Ball’s preseason, but it looks likely that he’ll be fine for the Broncos’ season opener. Which is good, because after letting Knowshon Moreno walk, Denver is banking on its new No. 1 back to have a breakout year. He managed 559 yards last year (4.7 YPC) after losing the starting job to Moreno. He’ll look to build on that, while also becoming a bigger factor in the Broncos’ passing game. (Thearon W.
