Broncos | Ronnie Hillman the favorite for backup

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 14:37:26 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is still ahead of RB Devontae Booker to back up RB C.J. Anderson, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com. RB Kapri Bibbs will also compete with Hillman and Booker for backup duties.

Fantasy Tip: Denver will try to run the ball frequently this year, but the fantasy value of Booker and Hillman is minimal at this point. Booker probably has more upside, too, despite Hillman currently being ahead of him. Don't view either as more than an RB4, though.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson in top condition

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 11:25:14 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: He still has to show he can hold up for a full season. Anderson will have Devontae Booker and Ronnie Hillman on his heels, and he could sit on third downs and inside the 5-yard line. For now, Anderson is a high-end RB3 with upside.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson the No. 1 back

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 20:16:57 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has looked like the No. 1 running back throughout organized team activities so far, and his cuts have been decisive like they were in the second half of last season after he recovered from his sprained ankle. Anderson is also adjusting well to having a fullback in front of him, with FBs Juwan Thompson and Andy Janovich competing for the role.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has really showed flashes of brilliance the last two years with the Broncos, but he's yet to put a full season together, mainly because of nagging injuries. He's expected to see the majority of carries this year, but he'll have to fend off the likes of Ronnie Hillman and impressive rookie Devontae Booker. This zone-blocking scheme fits Anderson well, but he's more of an RB2 or 3 than a No. 1 fantasy starter like he was drafted for last year.

Broncos | Andy Janovich, Juwan Thompson battling

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 20:14:56 -0700

Denver Broncos FBs Andy Janovich and Juwan Thompson are battling for the starting fullback job. RB C.J. Anderson has worked with Thompson and built a relationship over the past two season, so they have timing down while working together. That's something Janovich will have to build with Anderson over time.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Janovich nor Thompson are likely to have much in the way of fantasy appeal, but their presence is good news for Anderson. They'll help to make bigger holes for the running back.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson the lead back

Wed, 11 May 2016 17:35:55 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson had a lot of hype last season and fell flat. The offense is pretty questionable now with Mark Sanchez lined up as the starting quarterback. It's a risk to take Anderson as anything more than a great RB3. Hillman has spurts, but he's little more than an RB4. Booker could be worth an RB5 flyer if he makes some noise in camp.

Broncos | Different role for C.J. Anderson

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:17:17 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said his role will be different in 2016 because he will control more when he's off the field, as opposed to alternating so much with RB Ronnie Hillman and others.

Fantasy Tip: It's clear that Anderson is Denver's primary running back right now. That's what he was supposed to be last season, but Hillman took the spotlight at times. Hillman will still take away a good amount of playing time from Anderson, but Anderson can still achieve RB2 status if he stays healthy.

Dolphins | Miami eyeing Ezekiel Elliott?

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 18:16:41 -0700

Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott is being considered as an option for the 13th overall pick by the Miami Dolphins, who missed out on Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson and Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Elliott has the all-around game to thrive in Adam Gase's offensive system, and he could provide RB2 value as a rookie. If Miami does use a first-round pick on Elliott, Jay Ajayi would no longer be a starting-caliber fantasy back.

Broncos | More on C.J. Anderson deal

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 13:58:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will receive a guaranteed $5.25 million signing bonus. His $675,000 base salary is also guaranteed. Additionally, $1.7 million of his $2.9 million 2017 base salary is also guaranteed. Anderson's base salaries of $4.5 million in 2018 and 2019 are not guaranteed, however. He'll need to be on Denver's roster to earn that.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Anderson retains his position as the Broncos' lead running back. Denver could still add a running back, though, via free agency or the NFL Draft. For now, keep Anderson in the RB2 conversation.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson staying in Denver

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 12:15:48 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: This is a bit of a surprise as the Broncos seemed to be fine with letting Anderson go after giving him a low tender. Anderson is once again, for now, the lead running back for the Broncos. Ronnie Hillman is expected to leave town via free agency, so Denver will likely be adding another running back through free agency or the draft, too. Arian Foster is a name that has been rumored with the Broncos, especially with the connection to his former head coach, Gary Kubiak. Anderson's fantasy value would certainly take a hit if Foster joined Denver, but for now, Anderson is in RB2 territory.

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 05:34:19 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos restricted free-agent RB C.J. Anderson's offer sheet with the Miami Dolphins would make him the fourth highest paid running back in the NFL in 2016 at $6 million.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson looks like an RB2 in fantasy when draft day comes.
