    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.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 1:57pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 1:38pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 11:11am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 10:45am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 8:27am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 8:15am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 7:10am ET

    Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) had an MRI Wednesday, Oct. 26, which revealed he did not suffer a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Anderson's status is expected to be updated Thursday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 1:04pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Devontae Booker probably will receive most of the snaps at running back with Anderson is 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.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 9:31pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/22/2016 7:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said he isn't worried about RB Devontae Booker having a larger role in the offense. 'I'm actually happy that he's coming along,' Anderson said. 'I've been helping him through the whole way. I'm just glad he's here.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 9:04pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 9:58pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 11 times for just 41 yards in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also added three receptions for 21 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Anderson remains a decent RB2 in most fantasy leagues despite a handful of rough outings after his quick start to the season.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:35pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson ran 19 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also had one catch for three yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Anderson four total touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) in four games this season. While his yardage totals have tailed off since his two games of the season, Anderson remains a solid low-end RB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against Atlanta.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 2:28pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed for just 37 yards on 14 carries Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: The entire Denver running game was ineffective, but Trevor Siemian's passing made up for it. You may want to see how Denver's opponent fares against the run before putting Anderson in your lineup.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 4:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Anderson will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a decent No. 2 running back against the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 6:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ribs) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Anderson has been a workhorse for the Broncos through the first two games, and he should remain a RB1 in Week 3 despite a matchup with a solid Cincinnati defense.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 4:07pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Anderson will continue to receive a significant amount of carries each week and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 9:08pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 7/7/2016 1:08pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said it's pretty obvious that head coach Gary Kubiak and the coaching staff will be more committed to the run this year after QB Peyton Manning retired. 'I don't think there's a question what coach (Kubiak) wants to do,' Anderson said recently. 'All you have to do is look out there and see a fullback running around ... I mean, we even drafted one. (Kubiak) wants to run the ball.' RBs Andy Janovich and Juwan Thompson have lined up at fullback in offseason practices. Denver used a two-back set just 25 times last year, but Kubiak is intent on going to the run more often moving forward. The Broncos beefed up their offensive line by adding OTs Russell Okung and Donald Stephenson, too.

    Huddle Up: Despite their QB issues last season, the Broncos ran the ball on 38.92 percent of their offensive snaps last regular season, which ranked 19th in the league. Look the team's 2016 percentage to easily be in the top 10 with Anderson standing to be the main beneficiary, provided he's healthy and in shape for the majority of the season.

  • Posted: 6/10/2016 11:33am ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is in the best condition that head coach Gary Kubiak has seen him in, and Anderson has responded to competition. 'He's ready to be an every down back,' Kubiak said.

    Huddle Up: Could all of that Anderson-is-a-top-5-fantasy-back hype come a season too early? Those looking for mid-round RB with upside should certainly consider Anderson who projects as the lead back for a team which will look to run more in a run-friendly scheme given its current QB situation.

  • Posted: 5/12/2016 12:56pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will receive the bulk of the carries in 2016 with RB Ronnie Hillman providing a change of pace. RB Devontae Booker will have a chance to play on third downs if he can pick up pass protection.

    Huddle Up: To remain -- and thrive -- in the role, Anderson will have enter the regular season in top shape, fight off the nagging injuries and avoid the slow starts that have hampered him in recent seasons. If not, don't be surprised if the fourth-round pick Booker leaprogs Hillman and emerges as the Broncos' lead horse.

  • Posted: 3/15/2016 3:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos restricted free-agent RB C.J. Anderson's offer sheet from the Miami Dolphins is being matched by the Broncos on Tuesday, March 15, according to a source. Miami's offer sheet was four years in length and worth $18 million.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos could've saved money and hassle by placing a second-round tender on Anderson in the first place, but decided that they couldn't lose their top postseason rusher and one of the more popular players in the Mile High City. Anderson's numbers should increase this coming season, but fantasy GMs won't make the mistake of drafting him high in the first round again.

  • Posted: 3/10/2016 5:11pm ET

    Denver Broncos restricted free-agent RB C.J. Anderson signed a four-year, $18 million offer sheet from the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, March 10. The Broncos have five days to match Miami's offer.

    Huddle Up: Anderson would be reunited with former offensive coordinator Adam Gase, now the Dolphins' head coach, on a team needing a RB after losing Lamar Miller in free agency. We'll see, though, how much the Broncos want to keep Anderson with Ronnie Hillman a unrestricted free agent.

  • Posted: 3/10/2016 4:04pm ET

    Denver Broncos restricted free-agent RB C.J. Anderson visited the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, March 10 and is expected to sign somewhere other than Denver. The only question is whether the Broncos will match a likely front-loaded contract offer from another team.

    Huddle Up: Anderson, the Broncos' second-leading rusher last season and a key playoff performer, oddly received only a low tender from the Broncos, meaning the team would get no compensation if the RB signs elsewhere and Denver declines to match the offer.

  • Posted: 3/4/2016 3:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos restricted free-agent RB C.J. Anderson is expected to receive his restricted free-agent tender early next week.

    Huddle Up: Anderson, who came on late last season and playoffs, is expected to receive a fairly high tender and figure in the team's RB plans one way or the other with fellow back Ronnie Hillman an unrestricted free agent who's not expected to be re-signed.

  • Posted: 2/11/2016 6:13pm ET

    Denver Broncos impending free-agent RB C.J. Anderson thinks he can be a bell-cow running back after rushing 23 times and catching four passes for 100 total yards from scrimmage in the Super Bowl. 'You know, we chose to go the two-back route and we chose to split time with me and Ronnie (Hillman) and just try to get a change of pace. You know, keep defenses off balance. But I mean if they want me to touch the ball 25 times, 27 times, 28 times, either way whether it's all carries or carries and catches I believe I can handle it always, whether it's being a third-down back catching the ball out of the backfield or picking up the blitz and also being first- and second-down just every-down back,' Anderson said.

    Huddle Up: Anderson's 27 Super Bowl touches marked the first time he had 20 or more all season, and of the top two Broncos backs, Anderson is the most likely to return as he's a restricted free agent while Hillman is among the team's many unrestricted FAs.
