Broncos | C.J. Anderson had hip looked at

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:09:02 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (hip) had his hip evaluated Wednesday, Aug. 19, after a hit from LB Danny Trevathan. There was, however, no concussion.

Fantasy Tip: We'll have to see how much Anderson plays, if any, in the Broncos' second preseason game this weekend. He should still be viewed as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 in all scoring formats.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson is fine

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 16:40:52 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (undisclosed) was running and cutting at full speed in practice Monday, Aug. 17, after leaving the team's preseason game over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson had an amazing and unpredicted season in 2014 for the Denver Broncos, and he'll head into Week 1 as the favorite to see most of the touches in this backfield and in a new zone-blocking system that should benefit him. Target him in the mid to late first round of fantasy football drafts.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson could be bell cow

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 20:14:10 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson leads the stable of talented, young backs for the team. Head coach Gary Kubiak said he is open to using a bell cow running back. "I can tell you this, I believe in the (bell cow). And I believe it's up to the player to prove he can do that. Do you need two guys in a season? You are darn right, in this league," Kubiak said. "But I think if a guy goes out there and he show he can play three downs, can protect the quarterback, and can handle it, then he should stay out there."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is the odds-on favorite to serve as the starting tailback, and he is a solid RB1 to target in the area of Rounds 2-3 in standard fantasy formats.

Broncos | Denver to run more in red zone?

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:51:07 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson could see more opportunities in the red zone this season, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com. Klis said the Broncos figure to run the ball more in that area in order to help out an uncertain offensive line.

Fantasy Tip: If Anderson can keep the same pace he had last season -- eight touchdowns in seven starts -- he'll have to be given his fair share of red zone touches. Denver is expected to run the ball more overall under new head coach Gary Kubiak, making Anderson a worthwhile RB1 option.

Broncos | Lofty expectations for C.J. Anderson

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:59:07 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is capable of 1,400 rushing yards, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck. Renck said Anderson will be physically ready for the grind of being the lead running back in new head coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson certainly succeeded and impressed after taking over Denver's starting running back position halfway through the season. A lot is expected of Anderson this season, especially following the success he had last year. He's a solid RB1 candidate and should be taken in the first or second round of fantasy drafts.

Broncos | Montee Ball likely in backup role

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 05:20:30 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is expected to receive seven or eight carries a game, while RB C.J. Anderson serves as the bellcow with 18 per game, in the opinion of beat writer Troy E. Renck.

Fantasy Tip: This disputes the idea that Anderson and Ball were "1-A and 1-B" in the team's thinking. Anderson is a low-end RB1 in this format, while Ball is an RB4.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson starts as top RB

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:27:51 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will begin training camp as the starting running back. Head coach Gary Kubiak said it's his job to hang on to. Kubiak also added that RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman have had solid offseasons and will make the running back battle competitive.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Anderson is the lead running back right now as he ran for 849 yards and eight touchdowns while starting just eight games last year. If Anderson can hold on to his starting position, he has low-end RB1 upside.

Broncos | Montee Ball expecting big role

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 19:30:37 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball has performed well during offseason activities, and he described the situation at running back as a "1-A and 1-B" rotation between he and RB C.J. Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: While an even split between Ball and Anderson is probably wishful thinking on the part of Ball, he should at least be the main backup to open the year. Consider him a RB4 for fantasy purposes, and he isnít a bad insurance policy if you select Anderson.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson even better?

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 16:44:27 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson showed better conditioning and performed better in offseason programs this year than he did last season.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson finished last season on a high note, and he seems determined to remain the lead back in Denver. He has RB1 potential if he receives the bulk of the carries, but with Montee Ball and others making up a crowded backfield, it is safer to draft Anderson as a low-end RB2.

Broncos | Montee Ball determined this offseason

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:25:57 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball seems more motivated this offseason after suffering a late-season groin injury and losing his starting job to RB C.J. Anderson. Coaches have noticed that Ball is more focused following a tumultuous 2014 campaign. Ball said he's ready to be the next man up and is determined to win his starting spot back.

Fantasy Tip: As long as C.J. Anderson is healthy, he'll probably be the starting running back for the Broncos. After all, Anderson made the Pro Bowl after starting in just seven games in 2014. Anderson is a RB1 if he can maintain his starter status for a full season, while Ball shouldn't be considered more than a low-end RB4.
