Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Reduction in touches in Week 6 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Anderson gained 37 yards on 10 carries and hauled in four of five targets for 34 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers.

Anderson saw his carries drop for the second straight week, but did have a 20-yard touchdown reception wiped out by a holding penalty against Russell Okung late in the fourth quarter. On the plus side, he equaled a season high in receptions, although rookie Devontae Booker looked to be quicker and more decisive overall, something that certainly didn't escape the attention of the Broncos' coaching staff. It's becoming increasingly difficult to predict how the Denver backfield will shake out week to week, given Booker's emerging play, as well as the fact that Anderson has averaged 3.7 yards per carry or less in all but one contest this season. However, despite the fact that the team's run-heavy approach is likely to continue offering both backs a decent workload, Anderson's days as a primary ball-carrier could be in the past.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Anderson totals 62 yards against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Anderson rushed for 41 yards on 11 carries and added 21 yards on three catches in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

The match-up was in Anderson's favor entering Sunday's game, with Atlanta's linebacking corps depleted. Instead, Anderson was held under four yards per carry for the fourth straight game. Part of Anderson's struggles could be attributed to the absence of right tackle Donald Stephenson and tight end Virgil Green in recent weeks, but the results on the field are worrisome nonetheless. Anderson has been held under 50 yards rushing in three straight games and has failed to score in two of the three games.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Limited to 52 yards against Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay - adding a three yard catch during the contest.

Anderson had a string of seven straight games, including playoffs, with at least 80 total yards snapped last week in Cincinnati. He didn't fair much better in Tampa Bay. It's difficult to tell at this point whether opposing defenses, acknowledging Anderson's prominent place in Denver's offense, are keying on stopping him or whether the absence of right tackle Donald Stephenson and tight end Virgil Green is taking its toll. Things certainly look on a downswing for Anderson, but his prominent use in the red zone keeps him as a must-start. He has scored seven touchdowns in his last nine outings.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Held to 41 yards against the Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed for 37 yards on 14 carries and caught just one of four targets for four yards in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

The Bengals didn't give Anderson much room to work with on Sunday as the Broncos, instead, chose to air it out in the win. Anderson's still clearly the top back, no other ball carrier coming within 10 carries of him, but it was telling that head coach Gary Kubiak chose to pass for two touchdowns inside the seven yard-line, Anderson's typical stomping grounds, and run quarterback Trevor Siemian on an unsuccessful sweep on a two-point try. Anderson has a tough test coming up next week against Tampa Bay, but should be counted on for a rebound performance.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Totals 93 yards, scores against Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Anderson rushed for 74 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries and added 19 yards on three catches in Sunday's win over the Colts.

The Broncos' offense still runs through Anderson as he received over 20 touches for the second straight game, a mark that eluded him all of last season. The red zone remains his domain and he continues to show strides in the receiving game, making a tough catch on third and long, juking the defender and picking up a first down in Sunday's game. Though Anderson's touch total went down by just one in comparison to last week, 24 to 23, it will be worth monitoring the progress of rookie Devontae Booker whose touches went up from three to 10. Kapri Bibbs, too, saw some action on Sunday.
