Broncos | C.J. Anderson shines in Week 1

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 21:08:38 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman has competition for job

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 19:03:29 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is facing a battle for a roster spot, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is getting competition from rookie RB Devontae Booker and RB Kapri Bibbs for the right to back up starter RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman is expected to see plenty of action in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the San Francisco 49ers. "Ronnie is in a battle, a helluva a battle with Kapri and Book right now," Kubiak said Monday, Aug. 15. "There's no way around that. I'm just being honest with you."

Fantasy Tip: Hillman might need to play more special teams and excel in the role to keep his spot on the roster. He posted 863 yards and seven touchdowns last season while adding 24 receptions. If he makes the team he is a solid handcuff to Anderson, but wait to see how the preseason plays out before risking a late-round fantasy pick on him.

Broncos | Two Denver backs listed as co-backups

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 16:00:31 -0700

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman and Devontae Booker are listed as co-backups behind RB C.J. Anderson in Denver's initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Booker has more upside, but Hillman's experience and versatility may give him more playing time out of the gate. The rookie should be drafted higher, though, but only for depth in traditional leagues. Hillman has been given plenty of chances and hasn't really run away with the opportunities, pun intended.

Broncos | Denver to run often

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 11:49:31 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Anderson, Ronnie Hillman and rookie Devontae Booker. Anderson will be the go-to back, but he's never shown he's a capable RB1 for fantasy purposes over a full season, so draft him as more of a low-end RB2. Booker has the skills to be a three-down back and therefor has more appeal and upside than Hillman as a potential flex play.

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.
