C.J. Anderson becoming Fantasy star


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) If you grabbed C.J. Anderson when fellow Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman went down in Week 10, joining Montee Ball on the sidelines, congratulations. You're the winner of this season's waiver wire lottery.

It took a while for him to make an impact, but after his second straight game with 160-plus rushing yards Week 13 at Kansas City, it's pretty clear now he's the most impactful of the players who went undrafted this year.

Apologies to Justin Forsett, who has been relevant longer but hasn't been the one-man wrecking crew Anderson has become. And it didn't just begin in Week 12, mind you. Anderson had 163 total yards, 90 rushing and 73 receiving, the week Hillman went down and 115 more, 29 rushing and 86 receiving, the following week. The most Hillman ever had was 138, and he was considered a fine waiver claim himself.

Most likely, the matchup had a little something to do with Anderson getting 32 carries in Week 13. The Chiefs rank first against the pass and 30th against the run. But even on those days he's not running so often, he's already proven he's a dynamic receiving option out of the backfield.

He's like the Broncos' version of Le'Veon Bell. And you'd never sit him, right?


Broncos RB C.J. Anderson piles up 168 rushing yards vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson rumbled for 168 yards on 32 carries while adding another 17 yards and a touchdown on two receptions in his team's 29-16 win over the Chiefs in Week 13.

Anderson played heavily into the gameplan Sunday as the Broncos leaned on the ground attack, but after the lead runner scored the second touchdown of the first quarter on a pass from Peyton Manning, the offense wasn't able to reach the end zone for the remainder of the game, settling for five field goals. Anderson still showed what he could do as the bell-cow back for the second straight week, and he's managed an incredible 335 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards and two total touchdowns in his last two games. His next test will come against the Bills in Week 14.


C.J. Anderson gashes tough Dolphins defense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson ran through a tough Dolphins defense in Week 12, and put any concerns about his potential away.

Anderson, who had just 29 rushing yards against the Rams in Week 11, bounced back with the best rushing performance of his career Sunday. Against a Dolphins defense that entered the game allowing just 3.8 yards per carry to running backs, Anderson rushed for 167 yards on 27 carries. He added a touchdown, as well as four receptions for 28 yards in the come-from-behind win.

Anderson had done much of his damage in the previous two games through the air, with 159 yards on 12 receptions to just 119 rushing yards. However, the way he sliced through Miami's defense has to bode well for his chances to remain productive moving forward. Fantasy owners should consider him a must-star Fantasy option in all formats as long as he remains the Broncos' starter. 


Broncos running back C.J. Anderson has career day vs. Dolphins


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) With running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman inactive, Broncos running back C.J. Anderson took advantage of his opportunities, rushing for 167 yards on 27 attempts in a 39-36 win against the Dolphins Sunday.

Anderson received the bulk of the rushing carries and also added four receptions for four yards. Anderson’s 10-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter put the Broncos ahead for good.

While Anderson only had seven carries the previous week, it appears he will receive a heavy workload going forward. The Broncos next play Sunday at Kansas City.


C.J. Anderson tops 100 all-purpose yards again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Even on a day when the offense had trouble getting much going, Broncos running back C.J. Anderson was still productive in a 22-7 loss to the Rams in Week 11.

Anderson was the only running back to receive carries for the Broncos, who abandoned the ground game early on. He rushed for just 29 yards on nine carries, but showed his abilities as a pass-catcher, hauling in eight for 86 yards in the loss.

Anderson had 22 Fantasy points last week and followed that up with 10 Sunday in an off-day. The Broncos' offense is so effective, it's hard for the lead running back not to put up big Fantasy numbers. As long as Anderson is getting the bulk of the work, there is little reason for Fantasy owners not to have him in their starting lineup.  


Broncos RB C.J. Anderson racks up 115 total yards in loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) With the Broncos forced to throw Sunday against the host Rams, running back C.J. Anderson racked up bigger numbers through the air than on the ground.

That's not saying much - he only rushed nine times for 29 yards. But he tied for the team lead with 10 targets and caught eight for 86 yards. He really picked it up in the second half with six receptions for 62 yards.

Anderson, whose starting job seems secure with Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman struggling with injuries, will seek more balance next Sunday against the visiting Dolphins.


Report: C.J. Anderson to start at running back for Broncos


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson will earn his first career start Sunday at St. Louis, according to The Denver Post. Even though Montee Ball is returning from a groin injury that sidelined him for five games, Anderson is getting the start following his strong performance Week 10 against the Raiders.

Ball will be the No. 2 running back Week 12 and rookie Juwan Thompson will be the Broncos' No. 3 back. Running back Ronnie Hillman, who started four of the previous five games, is sidelined due to a foot injury.


Broncos RB Montee Ball expected back for Week 11


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Broncos running back Montee Ball is expected to return from injury against St. Louis in Week 11, according to the Denver Post.

Ball has been out since suffering a groin injury in Week 5. In his absence, running back Ronnie Hillman became a productive option for the Broncos.

With Hillman expected to miss at least two weeks with a midfoot sprain, Ball will compete with C.J. Anderson for carries.


Broncos running backs keep finding success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Being the running back in a Peyton Manning-led offense continues to be one of the best jobs in sports, as C.J. Anderson proved in Week 10's 41-17 win over the Raiders.

With Ronnie Hillman limited by an ankle injury, Anderson got his chance to show off in Week 10, and he put together a fine all-around performance. He rushed for 90 yards on 13 carries to lead the team, and added 73 yards on four receptions, punctuated by a 51-yard receiving touchdown in the second quarter.

Anderson entered Sunday's game with just 82 yards on 17 carries, and became the fourth Broncos running back to record double figures in Fantasy scoring. At this point, anyone the Broncos plug in there should be viewed as a must-start Fantasy option, whether it is Anderson, Montee Ball or Ronnie Hillman. Even Juwan Thompson could probably put up big numbers if given the chance.

The Broncos are going to put their running backs in position to score, and Payton Manning is going to get them involved in the passing game. Anderson's success combined with Ball's expected return clouds the short-term future, so keep an eye on the team's plans to figure out how to set your lineup for Week 11 against the Rams. 


Broncos RB C.J. Anderson racks up 163 yards of total offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) With Ronnie Hillman nursing an ankle injury, Broncos running back C.J. Anderson made the best out of his 17 touches in his team's Week 10 victory over the Raiders.

Anderson caught a short pass from Peyton Manning and turned it into a 51-yard touchdown reception. He carried the ball 13 times and rushed for 90 yards. He finished the game as the team's second-leading receiver, behind Demaryius Thomas (108 yards). Anderson caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 73 yards and a score.

With Montee Ball expected to return in the coming weeks, the Broncos could be dealing with a logjam at running back. Anderson will look to build of his performance in Week 11 against the Rams.


Broncos' Juwan Thompson, C.J. Anderson do little Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos running backs Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson did little Week 9 against the Patriots.

Anderson actually managed to lead the club in rushing, but gained just 18 yards on the day. He did contribute in the passing game, hauling in three passes for 33 yards. Thompson gained just 6 yards on two carries. He caught one pass for 6 yards. 

They'll look for more Week 10 against the Raiders. 


What's next for Juwan Thompson, C.J. Anderson?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) The Broncos got a great game out of Ronnie Hillman at the Jets in Week 6, giving him 27 total touches. Juwan Thompson had eight carries in the game for 38 yards along with a catch for no yards while C.J. Anderson was active but didn't get any touches. 

For now it looks like Hillman will be the top back in the Broncos offense. The leash could remain short with him -- he had a fumble that was recovered by a teammate in the game. Thompson and Anderson could end up getting work if Hillman falters. But that's not exactly the best reason to carry either back in Fantasy moving forward. Thompson seems to have more appeal than Anderson at this point. 


Broncos might take 'hot hand' approach to doling out carries


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) An injury to featured back Montee Ball has clouded the running back situation for the Broncos. It might not get cleared up Sunday against the host Jets, but a hot hand at that position could allow one back to emerge moving forward, per the team website.

Among the possibilities is Juwan Thompson, who has been declared probable despite a knee issue. He earned his first three carries of the season in Week 5. Thompson is expected to get extended reps, but so are Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson, who suggested Thursday that the one who proves to be the best of the bunch early will likely receive the most carries.


Broncos RB Montee Ball officially ruled out for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Broncos head coach John Fox officially ruled running back Montee Ball out for Week 6 at N.Y. Jets due to a groin injury, according to ESPN. Ball could be sidelined at least four games due to the injury. Ronnie Hillman will serve as the featured back, with C.J. Anderson likely earning some reps as well.

Broncos running backs no sure thing vs. jets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The Broncos have had one of the least effective running games in the league, but there is some hope that the ascension of Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson to larger roles will turn things around. What are the chances that happens in Week 6, with a tough matchup against the Jets on the way?

The Jets fell to 11th in FootballOutsiders.com's DVOA against the run in Week 5, after the Chargers ripped through them for 162 yards on the ground. However, in four games prior, the Jets allowed just 63.3 yards per game on the ground, with no running backs reaching double figures in Fantasy scoring against them.

Hillman ran the ball well for the Broncos last week against a tough Cardinals defense, but there is no telling whether he will be able to keep that up against New York. He should be worth starting in most Fantasy leagues even with the tough matchup, but temper expectations, especially with Anderson looming as a potential part-time player.
