So how many of you started Peyton Hillis this week? Too bad, because he could end up playing the second half for the Broncos. Ryan Torain — one of the most talked about players in fantasy football to not start a game — left the field with a knee injury. Backup Selvin Young has had injury troubles for a while, and it appears he could be out, too.
That would leave Hillis to run the ball in the second half. Or maybe Mike Shanahan will channel his inner-June Jones and throw the ball on every down in the second half. He might not have a choice.
But don’t fret if you started Torain, he still scored 12 fantasy points, which is about the most you could have expected.
