Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:36:51 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. "You need two or three guys that can carry the load," Joseph said. "It is no longer a one-guy position. I'm excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson figures to lead the way throughout the campaign, but it looks like he may not get as much work as his fantasy owners will desire, especially since he's coming back from a significant injury. With Charles and Booker also in town, it looks like this will be a tricky situation to deal with in 2017.

Broncos | Open competition at RB in Denver

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:14:40 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph may actually be leaning toward a committee approach based on his comments Friday. Assuming Charles is anywhere close to his former self, he should be considered the leader, although his recent injury woes makes him a poor bet to hold up all season. Anderson is most likely going to be the most valuable player in this bunch in 2017, but he has yet to prove he can handle a heavy workload for a full season. As a result, none of these backs may be worth anything more than flex consideration in 2017.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson full go

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 12:14:53 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson might not be ready for OTAs

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 20:19:46 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should be cleared soon

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 13:33:48 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson expects to be cleared soon

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 16:29:29 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should be ready for camp

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:29:32 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson not likely to return

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 20:15:33 -0800

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."

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson sheds knee brace

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 07:38:26 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson making solid progress

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:30:02 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.
