Broncos | C.J. Anderson back at practice

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 08:49:14 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle, illness) returned to practice Friday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The New England Patriots don't provide him with a good matchup this week. Anderson hasn't been too productive in the last four games, and he might be bench fodder unless you're covering bye weeks.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson sits out practice Thursday

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 16:05:43 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle, illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson got in a limited practice on Wednesday, so he should be fine for Sunday evening's tilt with the Patriots. He was likely just being rested here, especially since he didn't have an illness yesterday. Even so, he's a tough start right now, as Denver has begun to use all three of their main running backs in a committee, which severely caps Anderson's ceiling.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson out sick Thursday

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 11:50:16 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (illness) was not able to practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what the illness is, but Anderson should be better in time to play Sunday night. He has struggled of late, though, averaging only 38 yards in his last four games. Meanwhile, Devontae Booker has somewhat come on recently and has dug in to Anderson's playing time. Anderson can't be viewed as more than a flex.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson limited in practice

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 16:01:29 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will be facing the 25th-ranked rushing defense, so he should have a bounce-back game after a couple of mediocre performances. However, opposing defenses have been daring the Broncos to pass, stacking men in the box, limiting the effectiveness of the run game. Until the passing game can open things up, it will be tough sledding on the ground for Anderson and company.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson goes nowhere fast

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:59:03 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed nine times for 13 yards in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he did not have a catch on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson fired out of the chute, but shoddy offensive line play and struggles under center has forced defenses to stack the box, daring the Broncos to pass. That hasn't been working and Anderson has been struggling. He averaged 4.5 yards per game with 73 rushes, 330 yards and a score during the Broncos' 3-1 start. During the team's four-game skid, he has rushed 43 times for just 152 yards, no scores and 3.5 yards per run.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson suffers minor injury

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 09:37:49 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 9 but is considered probable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson likely will return to the game at some point, so owners should not worry much about the injury. He is a solid No. 2 fantasy running back when he is healthy.

Broncos | Fine MNF showing for C.J. Anderson

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 21:13:43 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson compiled 78 yards on 15 carries in the team's Week 8 defeat Monday, Oct. 30, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added one reception for no gain.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is having a fine season in 2017, but the thing that's holding him back from the upper echelon of running backs is his lack of touchdowns, boasting only two scores (one rushing, one receiving) on the year. It's only going to get tougher from here on out, as his quarterback has struggled mightily over the last few weeks, which limits what the rest of the offense can contribute. He's still worth plugging in as an RB2, however.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson doesn't do much

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:15:50 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 10 times for 44 yards in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers while adding one catch for 17 yards on two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson started out on fire, but opposing defenses are starting to stack the box and dare Trevor Siemian to beat them through the air. It's bad news for Anderson and the Denver backs, as the passing game has yet to earn that respect and open things up on the ground.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson hits a wall in Week 6

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 05:08:40 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson gained just 17 yards on nine carries in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: No one saw this game coming, and it was a huge disappointment for Anderson owners. Keep him in your lineup as an RB2, however, because the Los Angeles Chargers are up next and Anderson is bound to rebound.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson runs for 95 yards

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 18:34:30 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson carried 20 times for 95 yards and caught four passes for 17 yards in a 16-10 win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has topped 80 rushing yards in three of the four games this season, and he continues to dominant the backfield touches. Denver has bye in Week 5, but Anderson should be a solid RB2 against the New York Giants in Week 6.

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:02:02 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed eight times for 36 yards in the Week 3 loss in Buffalo and he added two catches for seven yards on his only two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson was a bust for his fantasy owners after a couple of solid performances to open the season. He'll look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Raiders.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson ready to sustain success

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:18:30 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said he is in the best shape of his life thanks to an improved training program designed to help him stay healthy. "I am doing some things, recovery-wise, to keep my body fresh and to keep my mind fresh," Anderson said.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is off to a strong start, and he had the most carries of any back through the first two weeks. Locked into a workhorse role, consider him a high-end RB2 against Buffalo in Week 3.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson rolls for 118 yards, TD

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:42:25 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 25 times for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added 36 yards on three catches with a score.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has re-emerged as a fantasy beast so far in 2017, averaging 99.5 rushing yards per game. After a torn meniscus ended his 2016 season prematurely, he appears to be fresh and better than ever. He is a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 3 in Buffalo.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson has 80 yards rushing

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 03:56:34 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson ran for 80 yards on 20 carries as his team won, 24-21, over the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson looked good in his first go-round of the season, even though he did not score. With Jamaal Charles looking healthy as well, it looks like Anderson is an RB2 whose reps could be split. How much so remains to be seen. Anderson is worth starting in fantasy leagues, and as always analyze matchups.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson in great shape

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 09:08:54 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is in his best shape "in three or four years," according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson's devoted his offseason to improving his longevity, which has been an issue considering he has been unable to play 16 games in any of his four seasons. With Devontae Booker recovering from a fractured wrist and Jamaal Charles limited early in camp, Anderson had an opportunity to put some distance between himself and competition over the next week or so. Given his track record, Anderson should be viewed as a midrange fantasy RB2.

Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:36:51 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. "You need two or three guys that can carry the load," Joseph said. "It is no longer a one-guy position. I'm excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson figures to lead the way throughout the campaign, but it looks like he may not get as much work as his fantasy owners will desire, especially since he's coming back from a significant injury. With Charles and Booker also in town, it looks like this will be a tricky situation to deal with in 2017.

Broncos | Open competition at RB in Denver

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:14:40 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph may actually be leaning toward a committee approach based on his comments Friday. Assuming Charles is anywhere close to his former self, he should be considered the leader, although his recent injury woes makes him a poor bet to hold up all season. Anderson is most likely going to be the most valuable player in this bunch in 2017, but he has yet to prove he can handle a heavy workload for a full season. As a result, none of these backs may be worth anything more than flex consideration in 2017.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson full go

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 12:14:53 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is a full participant as organized team activities commence Monday, April 10, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Anderson has been recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury and subsequent surgery since last season.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has had plenty of time to recover, but the Broncos may still take it somewhat easy with their expected starting running back. If Anderson comes out of the offseason at 100 percent health, he's an RB2 consideration for the 2017 season.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson might not be ready for OTAs

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 20:19:46 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) might not be ready for the start of organized team activities Monday, April 10, according to head coach Vance Joseph. "If he's working in OTAs in the middle part of it, we'll be fine with him in the fall," Joseph conceded.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson lasted just seven games this past season after sustaining a knee injury in late-October. Previously, the 26-year-old had established himself nicely as Denver's starting running back, averaging almost five yards per carry in each of the two prior campaigns. Depending on where he's at health-wise entering 2017, Anderson should at least be able to offer RB2 value.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should be cleared soon

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 13:33:48 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is expected to be cleared from his knee surgery in two weeks, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Just how involved Anderson will be in offseason activities remains to be seen, but he should be at least close to full go by the time offseason activities commence. Anderson figures to the Broncos' main running back again this season, but he'll need to beat out Devontae Booker and possibly others this offseason. If he does retain the starting position, he'll be an RB2 consideration.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson expects to be cleared soon

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 16:29:29 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) said he has been running at full speed and expects to be cleared for all football-related activities later this month. He said he has not make any cuts while running yet but is not feeling much pain.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson was limited to seven games because of the injury and finished the season with 437 yards and four touchdowns. He may be part of a committee at running back for the Broncos in 2017 but could be the main option in that committee. He probably should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy next season.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should be ready for camp

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:29:32 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) has started running on a treadmill and believes he will be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson probably will not do much during the offseason workouts but should enter training camp as the starting running back. He should receive most of the work at the position in 2017 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson not likely to return

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 20:15:33 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is not likely to return from the Reserve/Injured list this season, head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday, Dec. 21. "I had a good sit-down with C.J. yesterday. He's doing pretty good. The plan is for him to maybe start running in the next two weeks," Kubiak said. "I'd say he's probably on course (to return) sometime in February."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson was dropped from plenty of fantasy rosters when he was originally hurt near the end of October. For those picking him up recently, it appears you can safely drop him and add someone else who will help.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson sheds knee brace

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 07:38:26 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) has shed his knee brace in his recovery from knee surgery, according to a video he posted on social media Monday, Dec. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson could possibly return for Week 17, but the impact in fantasy will probably be minimal. If anything, he could be a player to keep in mind for a DFS play in the final week or a potential playoff run.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson making solid progress

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:30:02 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn meniscus.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is currently on the Reserve/Injured list but could be activated near the end of the regular season. Owners should keep an eye on the situation, but he may not be valuable in some leagues if he returns Week 16 or Week 17. Devontae Booker will continue to be the starting running back and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:57:15 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson won't be able to return for eight weeks, effectively putting him out for the rest of the fantasy season. The coast is now clear for Devontae Booker to become an every-week RB1, although there is a strong possibility new backup Kapri Bibbs will steal enough touches to merit a stash in deeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos are determining whether or not to place RB C.J. Anderson (knee) on injured reserve and they expect to come to a decision within the next 24 hours.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more likely than not that Anderson's season is over, but we'll know soon enough, according to this report. With him out indefinitely, Devontae Booker looks poised to emerge as a legitimate RB1 on a weekly basis.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 11:11:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is expected to miss eight to 12 weeks because of his knee surgery, but the Broncos hope that he will be able to return for the playoffs. The severity of the injury will not be known until the surgery occurs.

Fantasy Tip: Devontae Booker will fill in for Anderson in the starting lineup and should receive most of the carries in the running game. He is coming off a solid game in Week 7 and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson to undergo surgery

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 10:45:05 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday, Oct. 27, to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. He likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson probably will miss the rest of the season, so owners can drop him from their roster if they need another running back. Devontae Booker will receiver most of the playing time at running back moving forward and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson denies report

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:27:28 -0700

Updating earlier reports, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) denied a report stating he has told people close to him that his season is over.

Fantasy Tip: Either way, Anderson's outlook for Week 8 is in question. Devontae Booker's workload has been raising the last couple of weeks, and his stock could soar if Anderson is out for a considerable amount of time. Booker is a solid flex play with a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers this week.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:15:40 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) has told people close to him that his season is over, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson avoided an ACL tear, but there is still the possibility of a fracture in his leg. He's undergoing further testing today. Devontae Booker's workload has been raising the last couple of weeks, and his stock could soar if Anderson is out for a considerable amount of time. Booker is a solid flex play with a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers this week.

Fantasy Tip: Devontae Booker's workload has been raising the last couple of weeks, and Anderson's bone bruise will likely keep him out this week. If it's not too late, Booker needs to be picked up universally. He's a solid flex play with a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers this week.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson to miss time

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:04:07 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is expected to miss at least a few weeks because of a knee injury. He is scheduled to receive a second opinion on the knee to see if he will be sidelined for an extended period of time.

Fantasy Tip: Devontae Booker probably will receive most of the snaps at running back with Anderson sidelined and is coming off a game where he rushed for 83 yards and one touchdown. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues. Kapri Bibbs likely will also receive limited playing time but should be avoided by owners.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson hits century mark

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 21:31:38 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 16 times for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson entered with four straight games of 50 or fewer rushing yards, so the season-high in yardage was very welcome by nervous fantasy owners. Anderson has rushed for four touchdowns in seven games and remains a decent RB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the San Diego Chargers. He had 71 total yards from scrimmage on 14 touches in the first meeting in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Booker potentially seeing some more action, Anderson should continue to see enough touches to be used as a RB2 against the Texans in Week 7.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson had 10 carries for 37 yards and four catches for 34 yards in a 21-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Since a big Week 1, Anderson has struggled to run the ball, averaging no more than 3.7 yards per carry in each of his last five games. On the plus side, volume keeps him in the RB2 conversation.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson had 20 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown and four catches for 47 yards and a touchdown in a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: No other back had more than three carries, and Anderson looks primed to be the workhorse in Gary Kubiak's offense as long as he continues to produce. Expect RB1 production going forward.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman has competition for job

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 19:03:29 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is facing a battle for a roster spot, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is getting competition from rookie RB Devontae Booker and RB Kapri Bibbs for the right to back up starter RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman is expected to see plenty of action in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the San Francisco 49ers. "Ronnie is in a battle, a helluva a battle with Kapri and Book right now," Kubiak said Monday, Aug. 15. "There's no way around that. I'm just being honest with you."

Fantasy Tip: Hillman might need to play more special teams and excel in the role to keep his spot on the roster. He posted 863 yards and seven touchdowns last season while adding 24 receptions. If he makes the team he is a solid handcuff to Anderson, but wait to see how the preseason plays out before risking a late-round fantasy pick on him.
