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.

Broncos | Three Denver backs limited

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 14:21:39 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson (ankle), Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Juwan Thompson (ankle) were all limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11. Anderson returned to the field after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It'll probably be at least another week before Hillman is back in the picture in this backfield, and the Broncos have no reason to rush him back. Anderson ($7,000) should be fine for the matchup against the San Diego Chargers, and he remains a good option for FantasyScore lineups. Thompson ($3,000) is a desperation flex play.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson has no worries

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 13:12:20 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) said his ankle "feels really good to be honest with you," and he's not worried about it moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,000) is expensive now at FantasyScore after a three-touchdown performance last week and the fact that the Broncos have become much more reliant on the ground game. Facing the San Diego Chargers this week will be a good test for him, though, as they've only allowed an average of 11.40 fantasy points to backs in the last four weeks. Anderson's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield makes him more of an acceptable play at FantasyScore, though.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson misses practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 11:45:23 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is believed to be dealing with a minor injury, but owners should watch his practice participation during the week. Anderson would be facing a good San Diego Chargers run defense if he is able to play. He has a price tag of $7,000 on FantasyScore and could be an attractive option because of his ability to be a runner and receiver in the offense.

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 14:39:52 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (undisclosed) was able to check back into the Week 14 game against the Buffalo Bills after limping off earlier.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson punched in his third rushing touchdown of the game in the third quarter, so he looks to be fine. He is giving fantasy owners a very nice afternoon of production before being in and out of the lineup.
