WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Ronnie Hillman | Cowboys RB

Ronnie Hillman catches touchdown in Cowboys' third preseason game.

Hillman did not receive any carries against Oakland, but he had four receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown. With Ezekiel Elliott suspended for six games, Hillman could have a decent role in passing situations for the Cowboys to open the year.

Hillman sees just one carry in preseason game.

It went for zero yards, but he did catch two passes for 15 yards. Hillman's chances of making the roster seem to be fairly high as a receiving back behind Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris early in the season with Ezekiel Elliott suspended. It shouldn't lead to much fantasy value.

Ronnie Hillman carries six times for five yards in the Hall of Fame Game.

The new addition to the Cowboys backfield didn't find much room to run. Hillman didn't get involved on the passing game, which is ultimately what might be the big factor in him making the final roster.

The Cowboys are signing running back Ronnie Hillman, according to Adam Schefter.

Dallas worked out both Hillman and Denard Robinson last week, and opted to sign Hillman. The 2012 third-round pick of the Broncos is a speedy back with ability as a receiver, but he hasn't gotten much work over the last two seasons with San Diego and Minnesota, appearing in only eight games total after receiving 207 carries in 2015—his final season with Denver. Schefter notes that his "sense" is the Cowboys signed Hillman to brace for an Ezekiel Elliott suspension, which the league has not yet handed down but is expected to.

Free agent running back Ronnie Hilllman worked out for the Cowboys yesterday, according to Field Yates.

Fellow free agent back Denard Robinson also worked out for the team yesterday. Dallas is reportedly looking to fill the void left by Lance Dunbar (who is now in LA with the Rams) as a reliable passing down back. Neither Robinson nor Hillman have signed, but either one of them could at some point. Hillman is only 25 and should sign somewhere before the season.
