    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson had 10 rushes for 54 yards and a one-yard reception in the Week 10 loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos got blown out, and Anderson's touches suffered. He remains an RB2 option against the Cincinnati Bengals next week.

  • Posted: 11/10/2017 8:49am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 4:05pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 11:50am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/8/2017 4:01pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:59pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 9:37am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 9:13pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 8:15pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 5:08am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 6:34pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 3:02pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/23/2017 9:18pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 8:42pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/12/2017 3:56am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 9:08am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 4/10/2017 12:14pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 8:19pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 2/27/2017 1:33pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 2/1/2017 4:29pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/9/2017 4:29pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 8:15pm ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/13/2016 7:38am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/19/2016 9:30am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.
