    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson had the full confidence of head coach Sean McVay, who signed the free agent on Dec. 18. 'He's a guy that's played in big-time games,' coach Sean McVay said Saturday, Jan. 12, following the Rams' 30-22 divisional-round playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys. 'You know that no moment is too big for him. This is a guy that's had a big-time role and a Super Bowl champion team. He's just got a great feel for the game. I think he did a great job again tonight. Was really just impressed with him from the jump -- the way that he was able to come in, I guess it would be about a month ago now, and how quickly he was able to pick things up. Really smart, cerebral player and does a great job putting his pads down, finishing falling forward.'

    Huddle Up: In three games with the Rams, Anderson has rushed for 167, 132 and 123 yards and has totaled four TDs while subbing for/complementing No. 1 RB Todd Gurley. And even with Gurley back from a two-game knee-injury absence Saturday, Anderson handled 23 of the 41 RB touches. That likely will switch as soon as the NFC title game, but expect Anderson to still see at least a third of the touches, especially if the game is close.

    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson rushed 23 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Talk about one man's trash being another man's treasure. Denver, Carolina and Oakland all kicked Anderson to the curb within the last year, but he has been churning out 100-yard efforts since being scooped up by the Rams in the final weeks of the regular season. Even with Todd Gurley back in the fold, Anderson can't be ignored in playoff contests.

  • Posted: 1/5/2019 6:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson could continue to have a role in the offense during the playoffs, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'But, he's certainly earned the right to be on the field,' McVay said. 'He's done a great job these last couple weeks.'

    Huddle Up: Although Anderson topped 100 rushing yards in Week 16 and Week 17 while Todd Gurley was sidelined, Gurley is expected to be ready to go for the divisional round. It's hard to imagine Anderson doing more than spelling Gurley during the playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 8:25pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson rushed 23 times for 132 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 22 yards in a 48-32 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Anderson delivered two monster performance while filling in for Todd Gurley, but now that the Rams have a couple of weeks to rest, Gurley should be ready to go for fantasy owners in playoff contests. Anderson is merely an insurance policy at this point.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 6:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson rushed 20 times for 167 yards and a touchdown and lost five yards on his only reception in his team debut in a 31-9 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: The Rams decided to play it safe with Todd Gurley, and Anderson took full advantage. If Gurley rests his knee again in the regular season finale against San Francisco, Anderson could have another strong outing.

  • Posted: 12/21/2018 10:54am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson could play a role as early as this week, according to head coach Sean McVay, and 'all indications' point to Anderson being the first back off the bench if Todd Gurley is unable to play in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Optimism remains Gurley will be able to fight through a knee injury despite not practicing this week. However, if he doesn't, it appears Anderson may be the one - instead of rookie John Kelly - in a position to take advantage of a soft matchup. Owners should strongly consider stashing Anderson now and see how this thing plays out over the next 24 to 48 hours.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 12:48pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson was released Monday, Nov. 12.

    Huddle Up: Christian McCaffrey has emerged as a workhorse back this season, rendering Anderson somewhat obsolete. The San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins are among the teams that could/should have some interest in landing Anderson as a potential upgrade or complement to their respective backfield.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed twice for nine yards in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added a 24-yard touchdown catch on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Anderson wasn't needed, as Christian McCaffrey was galloping to a career-high 184 yards in the victory. The veteran Anderson did well when called upon, but he'll need more than three touches for fantasy relevance. No Panthers have relevance in Week 4, as they're off due to the bye.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 2:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed three times for 31 yards in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons and he did not have a catch on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Anderson's touches were limited, as the Panthers got away from the run in the second half and his counterpart Christian McCaffrey was used a lot to catch the ball out of the backfield. Unless something happens to McCaffrey to force him to the sidelines, Anderson's fantasy appeal is rather limited. The Panthers host the Bengals in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 11:50am ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Anderson is the clear second fiddle to Christian McCaffrey in Carolina's backfield. Drop Anderson for someone like Phillip Lindsay if he is still available on waivers.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 8:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson posted seven receptions for 35 yards in the Week 1 game against the Dallas Cowboys in his team debut.

    Huddle Up: Anderson had the seven total touches to 16 for Christian McCaffrey. Both backs averaged 5.0 yards per rush in the game, and Anderson looked more than capable running behind Carolina's patchwork offensive line. Should anything happen to CMC, Anderson is going to be a popular fantasy option.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 8:52pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed eight times for 39 yards and caught two passes for nine yards in a 27-20 win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Christian McCaffrey starred in this one, but Anderson should still see some work on early downs. At the very least, he's worth owning as a RB4 in case something happens to McCaffrey.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 7:27pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson rushed four times for 16 yards and a touchdown in a 28-23 win over the Buffalo Bills in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Anderson and Christian McCaffrey both had four carries in this one, and he should do a chunk of the heavy lifting on the ground during the regular season. He's a solid RB4 with flex potential against the right matchups.

  • Posted: 7/1/2018 7:20pm ET

    Carolina Panthers RB C.J. Anderson could have a similar impact to retired RB Stephen Davis when he signed 15 years ago, according to multiple people with the organization.

    Huddle Up: Expecting Anderson to be an MVP candidate like Davis was when he came to Carolina is a stretch, but he should immediately fill the role that Jonathan Stewart has occupied in recent years. Christian McCaffrey is going to handle most of the duties in the passing game, but Anderson should be a solid flex option.

  • Posted: 5/7/2018 1:01pm ET

    Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Broncos) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, May 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Anderson will immediately take over the role vacated by Jonathan Stewart. The move hurts Christian McCaffrey's stock a bit, but McCaffrey's main damage is in the passing game anyway and he remains an RB1 candidate in such formats. Anderson is a flex option in standard leagues, while Cameron Artis-Payne is now irrelevant.

  • Posted: 4/16/2018 7:40am ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be released Monday, April 16, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Anderson had a so-so year, but he rushed for a career-high 1,007 yards, with three scores and a 28-224-1 receiving line. He'll be in the RB3 mix in fantasy in the right situation.

  • Posted: 4/15/2018 6:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said he will be at the start of the offseason workout program Monday, April 16, and he is using the rumors that he was being traded as motivation.

    Huddle Up: There is still no guarantee that Anderson will be with the Broncos when the season begins, but if he does remain the starter in Denver, he has RB2 potential.

  • Posted: 4/10/2018 9:04am ET

    The Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins reportedly had a verbal agreement in place to trade RB C.J. Anderson for OT Ja'Wuan James before the Dolphins 'surprisingly nixed' the deal, according to Denver 7's Troy Renck.

    Huddle Up: It seems as though Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who was Denver's offensive coordinator for the first two seasons of Anderson's career, has tried to get him to Miami in each of the three years he has been in charge. The report confirms the Dolphins have doubts about committing to Kenyan Drake full-time and the Broncos wouldn't mind parting with Anderson to get out from under the $4.5 million they will open him for the upcoming season.

  • Posted: 3/28/2018 3:49pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is no longer a trade target for the Miami Dolphins since the Dolphins signed Frank Gore.

    Huddle Up: Gore likely will be sharing playing time with Kenyan Drake next season and should see a decent amount of touches. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues. Anderson is still with the Broncos at this point, but his status is uncertain. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back if he starts for the Broncos.

  • Posted: 3/25/2018 7:06pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson 'may or may not' be back with the team in 2018, general manager John Elway said Sunday, March 25.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has RB2 potential if he remains atop the depth chart in Denver's backfield, but his value could drop if he lands elsewhere or if the Broncos add another back early in the draft.

  • Posted: 3/12/2018 9:52am ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is not expected to be released at this point, but the Broncos are willing to listen to trade offers for Anderson.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Anderson may not be with the Broncos next season. He probably will be the starting running back no matter where he plays in 2018 and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 2/19/2018 3:33pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson could be pursued by the Miami Dolphins again if he were to be released by the Broncos. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and new running backs coach Eric Studesville both coached Anderson in Denver and Miami gave Anderson an offer just two years ago before it was matched by the Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It's a potentially sensible move, but Anderson needs to be released first. Kenyan Drake would still have the most potential in Miami's backfield, but Anderson would certainly hurt his fantasy ceiling. This is all conjecture at this point, but stay tuned as free agency approaches.

  • Posted: 2/17/2018 8:00pm ET

    The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.

    Huddle Up: Booker has flashed some potential with limited touches, and his fantasy value would receive a big boost if Anderson ends up elsewhere next season.
