Broncos | C.J. Anderson ready to be bell-cow RB?

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:23:55 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent RB C.J. Anderson thinks he can be a bell-cow running back after rushing 23 times and catching four passes for 100 total yards from scrimmage in the Super Bowl.

"You know, we chose to go the two-back route and we chose to split time with me and Ronnie (Hillman) and just try to get a change of pace. You know, keep defenses off balance. But I mean if they want me to touch the ball 25 times, 27 times, 28 times, either way whether it's all carries or carries and catches I believe I can handle it always, whether it's being a third-down back catching the ball out of the backfield or picking up the blitz and also being first- and second-down just every-down back," Anderson said.

Fantasy Tip: Both Anderson and Hillman are due for free agency this spring, and Anderson is the better bet to remain in Denver. His breakout came in 2014 when he ran 179 times for 849 yards and eight scores, and he could return to similar numbers if he's the go-to running back in 2016.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson starting

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 14:56:43 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has been a solid part of the offense but has not been in the starting lineup for several months. Anderson has rushed for 72 yards in each of the two playoff games and will have plenty of chances to produce in Super Bowl 50.

Broncos | Denver running game has been producing

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 16:27:15 -0800

The Denver Broncos have averaged 29.9 rushing attempts and 128.0 rushing yards (eight touchdowns) in their last nine games with RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman. The Broncos are unbeaten when they record at least 30 rushes and 130-plus rushing yards in a game this season. Anderson has been the more productive runner in a featured role.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson and Hillman complement each other well, and both will see plenty of opportunities to make a difference on offense in the Super Bowl against the Carolina Panthers unless the Panthers get out to a big lead early.

Broncos | Will Denver's running backs stay?

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 13:33:21 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent RBs Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson are both slated to become free agents this offseason. Anderson, however, will be a restricted free agent, so he'll be easier to bring back than Hillman, who will be an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos may want to keep both backs, but Anderson seems more likely to stay. Hillman had his fair share of success in 2015, but he's built somewhat of a reputation for fumbling the football and has a relatively small frame for a running back. With Peyton Manning possibly retiring and at least one running back possibly leaving, the Broncos could have a very new look on offense next season.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson runs well

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 16:28:28 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson finished with 16 carries for 72 yards and three catches for 18 yards in a 20-18 win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson continued his late-season surge, and while he didn't live up to expectations this year, he is still a RB2 candidate heading into 2016.

Patriots | Dont'a Hightower the X-factor?

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 15:50:55 -0800

The Denver Broncos were only able to run for 46 yards and no touchdowns on 16 carries with New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower in the game in their Week 12 matchup. After Hightower left due to an injury, Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman piled up 133 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries. LB Jamie Collins also missed that game.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) finished the divisional round running better than Hillman ($6,200, 12.4% of cap), so he could see more early work against the Patriots. The Broncos will mix both in, but with Hightower and Collins playing, yards on the ground may be tough to come by.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson has uphill battle

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 18:52:58 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will meet the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. The Patriots ranked eighth in the NFL against the run during the regular season, giving up just 98.8 yards per game with eight rushing touchdowns, eight runs of 20 or more yards and just one tote of 40 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has a bit of a steep price tag in FantasyScore given the matchup, but if you must go with a Denver back Anderson is slightly more appealing than Ronnie Hillman ($6,200, 12.4% of cap). Anderson is the hammer who will be used in goal-line situations, and he scored the only offensive TD in their win over Pittsburgh from 1-yard out in the fourth quarter.

Broncos | Denver run game had success against Pats

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 13:37:39 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson combined to rush for 172 yards in a Week 12 win over the New England Patriots. Anderson closed out the divisional round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers running well, and he could see the ball more often early against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots weren't the best fantasy matchup for running backs all year, but Denver had one of their best rushing games of the season against New England in bad weather. Anderson definitely looked much better against the Steelers, so it would certainly make sense for him to see more work early. But the Broncos have split the carries pretty evenly between both backs all year.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson runs well

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 17:08:44 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson carried 15 times for 72 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 11 yards in a 23-16 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has played well the last two games with Peyton Manning back under center, but he will have a tough test in the conference title game against a New England defense that ranked in the top 10 against the run during the regular season.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson has momentum

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:32:41 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is averaging 6.4 yards per carry since Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos will look to get the run game going in the divisional round against the Pittsburgh Steelers in order to take pressure off of Peyton Manning. While Pittsburgh's run defense has been strong this year, Anderson ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) shouldn't be overlooked.

Broncos | Denver RBs rough up San Diego

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:13:00 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed 15 times for 117 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers, and RB C.J. Anderson had 15 rushes for 95 yards and a score, and he lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: The running game got on track at just the right time, leading the Broncos to a much-needed first-round bye. Anderson and Hillman will each be useful FantasyScore options in two weeks for their first playoff game.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should be in uniform

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 13:52:25 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should receive a solid amount of touches against the Chargers this week and has averaged at least 6.0 yards per carry in three of the last four games. He could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should receive a decent amount of touches against the San Diego Chargers this week and is coming off a solid Week 16 performance. Anderson could be a cheaper option for owners to consider, but they should not expect a big performance.

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 22:25:49 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed for 73 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will continue to share carries with Ronnie Hillman moving forward but will receive chances to make plays on offense. He will be facing the San Diego Chargers next week and could be a decent option in some leagues.

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 13:47:07 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 26, and he's probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has a tough matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he hasn't produced consistently enough to trust on FantasyScore.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson limited

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 20:51:52 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle, back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 25. The team did not conduct a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) appears to have a chance to play in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals despite dealing with the injury. Anderson has posted at least 60 yards in only one of his last six games and may not be the best option for owners.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson limited

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 13:55:18 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle, back) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has received limited touches the last two weeks and may be limited again because of his injuries. Owners probably should look for other options to use since Anderson will be facing a solid Cincinnati Bengals defense in Week 16.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson could get normal workload

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 07:06:47 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) is expected to receive his full workload during Week 15's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, after going without a carry versus the Oakland Raiders last week, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Dec. 17, and was officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report. However, he is not a great play in FantasyScore because the Steelers have allowed the fifth-fewest rushing yards in the league (1,148) and the second-fewest rushing touchdowns (four).

Broncos | C.J. Anderson questionable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:16:17 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was active last week but didn't play at all. Against a strong Steelers run defense, it's not suggested to use Anderson in daily games even if he's active. Ronnie Hillman is still the starter in this backfield, and now Anderson has lost some momentum.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson officially limited

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:14:47 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Anderson ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will see a lot of work in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after being shut out last week even though he was active. The Steelers have played well against the run this season, so Anderson is not a great option even if he plays.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson returns to practice

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 11:27:44 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 17, after being held out Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) ankle injury isn't believed to be serious, but he didn't see any work in Week 14 after being active. The Pittsburgh Steelers are good at stopping the run, so you'd be smart to avoid Anderson again this weekend on FantasyScore.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson should return

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 12:37:28 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 16, because the Broncos practiced inside, but he is expected to return this week, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: The Pittsburgh Steelers don't provide the most favorable matchup for Anderson ($5,400, 12.8% of cap) and Denver's running game. The Steelers have only allowed three rushing touchdowns to running backs all year. This may not be the best week to plug Anderson or Ronnie Hillman ($5,800, 11.6%) into your FantasyScore lineups.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman does nothing

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:16:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman rushed 12 times for just 20 yards in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, failing to take advantage of the fact RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) was sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman faces another difficult matchup with the Broncos hitting the road for Pittsburgh in Week 15. He should be avoided in most fantasy formats.

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 11:58:04 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) and RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) are officially active for the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will receive the start and could see a majority of the carries since Anderson's ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) role is uncertain at this point. Owners probably should consider using Hillman over Anderson if they have a choice.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson's status uncertain

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 07:31:59 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson's (ankle) status remains up in the air for Week 14's game against the Oakland Raiders. If he plays, he is expected to be very limited.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) did not practice at all this week and was listed as questionable on the team's injury report, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore this week. Ronnie Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will serve as the starter against the Raiders.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson questionable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 15:23:10 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) are both questionable for Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders. Anderson did not practice Friday, Dec. 11, and Hillman was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is expected to be fine and will serve as the starter yet again. Not only is he healthier than Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) right now, but he's cheaper on FantasyScore in a solid matchup with the Raiders. Hillman is a fine flex play, but you'll probably want to avoid Anderson in this one in an afternoon tilt.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) practiced Friday, Dec. 11, and will start Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Oakland Raiders. RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) still has a chance to play, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) could have some upside if Anderson is limited or out. He's a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:24:20 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: There's no word yet on Ronnie Hillman. If he's able to go against the Oakland Raiders, his $5,400 (10.8% of cap) price tag looks decent on FantasyScore if Anderson can't play.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson sit out

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:03:29 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) both sat out of practice Thursday, Dec. 10, but a source said both running backs are expected to practice fully Friday, Dec. 11, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Although cheaper on FantasyScore, Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) remains the starter in Denver's backfield and is a fine value selection on FantasyScore with the Broncos running well the past three games. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) deserves flex consideration, though, against the Oakland Raiders at home.

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) are expected to be full go on Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) remains the starter in Denver's backfield, and he's a nice value pick against the Raiders this weekend. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is worth flex consideration as well, especially considering how well the Broncos have run the ball of late.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman doesn't practice

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 12:28:48 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, due to a sore foot. RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) did not practice either, but head coach Gary Kubiak is hopeful they will both be able to play. Additionally, Kubiak said he has confidence in RB Juwan Thompson if Thompson is needed.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Hillman ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) nor C.J. Anderson ($6,700, 13.4%) practiced today, so the Broncos running back situation will really need to be monitored this week. If they both play, Juwan Thompson ($2,000, 4.0%) probably won't see much action, but he is also worth monitoring.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) reported considerable soreness Monday, Dec. 7. He'll receive treatment through the week, and his practice time will be impacted.

Fantasy Tip: Ronnie Hillman has been the starter in name, but Anderson has remained involved. At $6,700 (13.4% of cap), you'll need to keep tabs on him this week before using him on FantasyScore against the Oakland Raiders.

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 18:28:57 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson faces the New England Patriots in Week 12, and the Patriots are allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Since delivering 101 yards and a score in Week 8, Anderson ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't recorded more than 59 rushing yards in his last three games. Continue to avoid him at FantasyScore against New England.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman will remain starter

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 12:27:23 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will remain the starter again in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, but RB C.J. Anderson will also see time.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos must get their running game going to protect Brock Osweiler in his first career start. Both Hillman ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and Anderson ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) have been frustrating plays this season. That could continue against Chicago, but if you're going out on a limb with one on FantasyScore in a flex spot, it should be Hillman.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson struggles in loss

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 21:12:45 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson carried twice for nine yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs while he did not have any receptions while being targeted just once.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously two touches isn't going to cut it for FantasyScore players. For a couple of games, it appeared Anderson was ready to re-take his spot atop the depth chart, but Ronnie Hillman has had two strong games in a row to move back to the top spot.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman both probable

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:26:18 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson (ankle) and Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) both practiced in full Friday, Nov. 13, and are probable for Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Trusting Denver's backfield this year has been a frustrating situation for fantasy owners, and it could easily continue this weekend. Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has looked better than Hillman ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), but trusting either on FantasyScore is a risky proposition.

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 15:24:00 -0800

Denver Broncos RBs C.J. Anderson (ankle) and RB Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Hillman ($5,700, 11.4%) have been sharing playing time lately, and both disappointed last week. Their matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs could end in disappointment, too, as the Chiefs have only yielded four rushing touchdowns to running backs on the year.

Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear who will start in Week 10 in Denver's backfield. Hillman ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) and Anderson ($5,300, 10.6%) will both be evaluated before a decision is made, but Hillman has done more with less this season. Neither did much versus the Kansas City Chiefs in their first outing this year, though, so you may want to look elsewhere at running back on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has made more of the opportunities he's been given than Anderson ($5,300, 10.6%) has so far this year. The Chiefs have played well defensively against the run this year, though, so there may be better options on FantasyScore for running backs.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson does very little

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 19:16:39 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson carried seven times for 34 yards in the Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts, and he added one reception for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was unable to carry over the momentum of his decent showing last week, but his 4.9 yards per carry was his second best performance of the season. And Ronnie Hillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) laid a complete egg, so Anderson should at least remain in a 50-50 split for carries going forward.

Broncos | Four Broncos listed as probable

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 13:42:53 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (shoulder), QB Peyton Manning (shoulder), WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) and RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) are all listed as probable for Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts. Daniels didn't practice Friday, Nov. 6, while the others all practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: After an impressive offensive showing in Week 8 against the Green Bay Packers, the Broncos and Manning ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) and Sanders ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) would be an acceptable stack on FantasyScore against a vulnerable Colts secondary. Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) also has appeal as a flex play after breaking out last week. Daniels ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) remains a desperation play, especially with Vernon Davis now in the picture.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson takes part in practice

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 15:10:37 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has lost his starting job but will still see a decent amount of carries against the Indianapolis Colts. He is coming off a 101-yard game in Week 8 and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season. Owners on FantasyScore can consider using him in their lineups.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman, C.J. Anderson practice

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 17:31:55 -0800

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (thigh) and RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) appear to be on track to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9. Hillman could see most of the carries during the game, but Anderson will also receive plenty of carries. Both players have a chance to be solid options for owners on FantasyScore.
