Broncos | C.J. Anderson starts as top RB

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 11:27:51 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will begin training camp as the starting running back. Head coach Gary Kubiak said it's his job to hang on to. Kubiak also added that RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman have had solid offseasons and will make the running back battle competitive.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Anderson is the lead running back right now as he ran for 849 yards and eight touchdowns while starting just eight games last year. If Anderson can hold on to his starting position, he has low-end RB1 upside.

Broncos | Montee Ball expecting big role

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 19:30:37 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball has performed well during offseason activities, and he described the situation at running back as a "1-A and 1-B" rotation between he and RB C.J. Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: While an even split between Ball and Anderson is probably wishful thinking on the part of Ball, he should at least be the main backup to open the year. Consider him a RB4 for fantasy purposes, and he isnít a bad insurance policy if you select Anderson.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson even better?

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 16:44:27 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson showed better conditioning and performed better in offseason programs this year than he did last season.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson finished last season on a high note, and he seems determined to remain the lead back in Denver. He has RB1 potential if he receives the bulk of the carries, but with Montee Ball and others making up a crowded backfield, it is safer to draft Anderson as a low-end RB2.

Broncos | Montee Ball determined this offseason

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:25:57 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball seems more motivated this offseason after suffering a late-season groin injury and losing his starting job to RB C.J. Anderson. Coaches have noticed that Ball is more focused following a tumultuous 2014 campaign. Ball said he's ready to be the next man up and is determined to win his starting spot back.

Fantasy Tip: As long as C.J. Anderson is healthy, he'll probably be the starting running back for the Broncos. After all, Anderson made the Pro Bowl after starting in just seven games in 2014. Anderson is a RB1 if he can maintain his starter status for a full season, while Ball shouldn't be considered more than a low-end RB4.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson svelte at OTAs

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 22:33:20 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson modified his diet, ran hills and tracks in Colorado and California to check in at 221 pounds for the start of organized team activities (OTAs), down 22 pounds from this point last season.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson wants to keep a large role in the offense so he has been working on his shape and stamina. With Montee Ball and the rest of the crowded backfield Anderson should be used more as an RB3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Duo splits first-team carries

Fri, 29 May 2015 06:07:38 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson are splitting first-team repetitions during organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is expected to be ahead of Ball on the depth chart, but the two will both see a lot of action in Gary Kubiak's RB-friendly offense. Anderson is an elite RB2 while Ball projects as a low-end RB3.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson overweight last year?

Fri, 08 May 2015 19:42:56 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson was a "little chubby" and wore down quick at times last year, according to former offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who now works for the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the comments, Anderson is expected to open next season as the starting back. After closing last season with nine scores in the final six weeks, he should be a high-end RB2 as one of the main weapons in Denver's high-powered offense.

Broncos | Montee Ball eyes starting role

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 12:22:23 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is confident that he will regain the lead-back role with the team, but admitted that RB C.J. Anderson deserves the job right now. Ball is currently behind Anderson and RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart. Ball blames an appendectomy in August of last year for weakening his core, which then led to a torn right groin that put him on Injured Reserve. He had just 172 yards on 55 carries and a touchdown in 2014. Ball started feeling better in February and has spent the last three months working on his flexibility with a personal trainer.

Fantasy Tip: Ball has plenty of work to do, but at least he's in a system that could really benefit him if he finds himself on the field often. Unfortunately, that'll probably have to come at the expense of an injury or poor play for Anderson or Hillman. Ball won't be a draft consideration in standard fantasy leagues this fall unless something drastic happens over the summer.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson enters OTAs as starter

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 04:16:09 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will open OTAs in April as the starter, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson totaled 1,173 yards from scrimmage and put an end to the Broncos' endless woes at running back, at least for the second half of the season. A lot could change between OTAs and camp, but for now keep an eye on Anderson as he could go in higher rounds as a legitimate RB1 or RB2.

Broncos | Denver RB competition fierce

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 16:25:20 -0700

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson, who finished 2014 with 648 rushing yards in the last six games, will enter the 2015 season at the top of the running back depth chart, according to new head coach Gary Kubiak. However, competition will be fierce for touches in training camp, with RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman still around. Ball vowed "to get back my job" at the end of last season after landing on the Injured Reserve. Hillman is a wild card, and he has yet to top 106 carries in any one season. RB Juwan Thompson is a possibility as a fullback/running back hybrid.

Fantasy Tip: Because of what he did last year, Anderson is the favorite to be the bell-cow back in Kubiak's system, which has produced plenty of successful runners. Anderson will likely be overvalued in 2015 fantasy football drafts, but he could be the X-factor on your roster, depending on whether he can hold off the other runners in Denver.
