Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has rushed for three touchdowns on just 10 carries in three quarters of play versus the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. He has 57 yards on the ground.

Fantasy Tip: While Ronnie Hillman has more carries at this point, Anderson has been a touchdown machine for owners in league championships and DFS games.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson probable for Week 17

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:51:52 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will play against the Raiders, although he could see fewer touches if Ronnie Hillman (foot) plays and is eased back in. However, with a great matchup against the Raiders, that shouldn't keep you from rolling with Anderson at FantasyScore at least as an RB2.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson fully practices

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 15:18:01 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson should continue to see a majority of the carries and will be facing an Oakland Raiders run defense that has allowed the third most fantasy points to running backs this season. Owners can consider Anderson as a low-end No. 1 running back or a No. 2 back.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson a full go

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:31:17 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,555) has come down to earth a bit in recent weeks, but he remains the team's top back, which counts for a lot in fantasy football. Against the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, he should be a fine play in daily games. Anderson had his coming-out party the first time Denver faced Oakland earlier this year.

Broncos | No company for C.J. Anderson

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:11:57 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is expected to start in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22, and he does not have to worry about RB Ronnie Hillman (foot), who is inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will likely get a lion's share of the carries with Hillman sidelined yet again, with Juwan Thompson also factoring in for a handful of touches. But the top fantasy option in the backfield will be Anderson.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson listed as probable

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 12:09:38 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, and is probable for Monday night's game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,600) may be pricy on FantasyScore this week but he could very well be worth the investment as the Bengals give up over 100 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown per game to running backs.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson practices in full

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:30:02 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,600) has faded a tad over the last two games against capable teams against the rush. Monday night in Cincinnati should present a good chance to use him again at FantasyScore, though. The Bengals allow the fifth most fantasy points to running backs (22.09) per game this season.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson's workload to be monitored?

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:50:04 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has averaged 27.25 carries in the last four games, and his workload may need to be monitored by the team as the playoffs approach. However, it helps that Anderson started his midseason run with a completely fresh body since not being a featured back since his sophomore year in college. Denver had planned to cut Anderson's carries in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, but QB Peyton Manning falling ill changed the game plan. In the last two weeks, Anderson has 50 carries for 143 yards for a 2.9 yards-per-carry average. Before that, he was averaging 5.4 yards per carry. RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) is hoping to return in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals, which could take some pressure off Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,600) still remains a very safe option at FantasyScore right now with the Broncos' move to a heavy ground attack. As mentioned by Klis, the Bengals are one of the worst run defenses in the league, so the Broncos figure to attack them heavily on the ground, making Anderson a good daily option. Hillman's status for this week is unknown, making him too risky, even for $3,500.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson will play against Bolts

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:11:26 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: As Denver continues their ground-and-pound ways recently, Anderson ($7,000) has gained significant fantasy football value. As long as Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin) remain out, Anderson is an acceptable FantasyScore option as the lead back that can also catch passes out of the backfield.
