Second-year RB Juwan Thompson is reportedly challenging for the Broncos' No. 2 running back job.
Thompson averaged 5.0 yards on 54 carries as an undrafted rookie out of Duke last season, scoring three touchdowns. He's reportedly putting heat on Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman behind C.J. Anderson. "Forty (Thompson's number) looked unbelievable today," coach Gary Kubiak said after Saturday's practice. "He's built for what we do." It's time to add Thompson in all Dynasty leagues and put him on the re-draft sleeper radar. Aug 1 - 9:48 PM

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) returned to Broncos practice on Friday.

The Broncos play Monday night, so they won't announce injury statuses until Saturday. But Thompson looks on track to back up C.J. Anderson against the Bengals. His workload is unclear with Ronnie Hillman possibly returning.

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) was sidelined Thursday.

Thompson's status for Monday Night Football appears uncertain. If he can't go, Ronnie Hillman (foot) may finally be ready to return as C.J. Anderson's backup.

Juwan Thompson rushed four times for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

Thompson oddly lost two breather back carries to Jeremy Stewart. Regardless, no one is unseating C.J. Anderson, who piled up 29 more carries Sunday. Thompson will be fighting with Ronnie Hillman for scraps in Week 16.

Juwan Thompson rushed four times for 63 yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Bills.

With C.J. Anderson rolling his ankle a couple times, Thompson got a few more chances than expected. He made the most of them by showing serious burst for a player that goes 225 pounds. Thompson is the handcuff to Anderson until Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball return from injury. They are both more week to week than day to day.

Juwan Thompson had 10 carries for 39 yards in Week 13 against the Chiefs.

Thompson played a limited role behind C.J. Anderson, with the majority of his carries coming in the fourth quarter. He'll be nothing more than a touchdown-dependent RB4 in Week 14.

Juwan Thompson rushed five times for 33 yards in Denver's Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Operating as C.J. Anderson's clear backup, Thompson was out-touched 31-5 by Denver's latest starter. The closest Thompson got to the goal line was a second-quarter carry from the Dolphins' seven. He gained two yards. Thompson will be a touchdown-dependent RB4 for next week's game against the Chiefs.

Juwan Thompson caught one pass for three yards in the Broncos' Week 11 loss to the Rams.

He didn't carry the ball. Thompson entered the day as the No. 3 back to C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball, but was moved up to No. 3 in the first half after Ball aggravated his groin injury. Anderson served in an every-down role, notching 17 touches. With Ball and Ronnie Hillman (foot) looking at extended absences, Thompson will be the No. 2 to Anderson for the foreseeable future.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 06:02:00 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson managed eight yards on four carries in Denver's Week 10 win over the Raiders.

For the second straight week, Thompson was the No. 3 back in Denver's rotation, playing behind Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. As the Raiders built a 41-10 lead by late in the third quarter, Thompson was still utilized minimally. With Montee Ball (groin) due back in Week 11, Thompson has little to no value in 12- and 14-team fantasy leagues.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 08:07:00 PM

Juwan Thompson (knee) is probable for Week 10.

Thompson has been playing through a knee issue the last three games, but it's not a concern. With Montee Ball close to returning, Thompson will be relegated to a reserve role.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 04:58:00 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson (knee) is practicing in full for Week 10.

Thompson has been playing through his knee issue for weeks. The question is his place on the depth chart, as Montee Ball (groin) could return against the Raiders. Thompson is safely droppable in 12-14 team leagues.
Thu, Nov 6, 2014 05:58:00 PM

Juwan Thompson rushed twice for six yards in Denver's Week 9 loss to the Patriots, adding a six-yard reception.

Ronnie Hillman was allowed to handle his business at the goal-line, leaving Thompson without a shot at fantasy points. With Montee Ball (groin) potentially returning for Week 10, the end is nigh for Thompson's fantasy moment in the sun.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 08:48:00 PM

Juwan Thompson (knee) is probable for Week 9.

Thompson will be a touchdown-dependent RB4 against the Patriots. Ronnie Hillman (shoulder) is also listed as probable.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 07:50:00 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is listed on the Week 9 injury report with a knee issue, but is practicing in full.

He'll be good to go for Sunday's showdown with the Pats. Thompson is an RB4 entirely reliant on vulturing scores from Ronnie Hillman.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 06:32:00 PM

Juwan Thompson rushed seven times for 24 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's Week 8 win over the Chargers.

Thompson vultured workhorse Ronnie Hillman for two- and one-yard scores in the second half. The touchdowns were his second and third of the season. Thompson has been running well as a situational hammer, but will likely lose that role upon Montee Ball's (groin) return.
