  • Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Rips off long run
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson rushed three times for 31 yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Falcons. Anderson's total was boosted by a 22-yard run, which marked Carolina's longest play on the ground. He was also targeted twice, but couldn't haul in either attempt. The veteran was on the field for just eight offensive snaps, again emphasizing his backup role to Christian McCaffrey, who finished with 22 touches while missing just four plays.

  • Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Practices in full
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson (illness) practiced fully Thursday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. Anderson has put the illness that forced a DNP on Wednesday behind him. As the top backup to Christian McCaffrey, Anderson handled 12 offensive snaps Week 1 against the Cowboys, compiling seven carries for 35 yards. If the breakdown of red-zone runs is any indication -- Anderson matched McCaffrey with two rushes, or one less than Cam Newton -- a clear-cut goal-line option has yet to emerge in Carolina.

  • Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Returns to practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Anderson (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. An illness kept Anderson off the practice field Wednesday, but he's back at work and thus in line to suit up Sunday against the Falcons. The former Bronco logged 12 snaps (while rushing seven times for 35 yards) in the Panthers' Week 1 win over the Cowboys, while working as the clear backup to Christian McCaffrey (57 snaps). Anderson's fantasy value is modest so long as McCaffrey remains healthy, but if that context changes, he's one of the league's more capable backup/complementary running back options.

  • Anderson (undisclosed) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. It remains to be seen if this is a maintenance day for Anderson or if he's dealing with any sort of injury. The 27-year-old logged 12 snaps in the Panthers' Week 1 win over the Cowboys, working as the clear backup behind Christian McCaffrey (57 snaps). Anderson at least received ample work when he was on the field, carrying seven times for 35 yards.

  • Anderson rushed seven times for 35 yards in Sunday's 16-8 win over the Cowboys. Anderson played just 12 of 67 offensive snaps despite starting tailback Christian McCaffrey fumbling early on. It's clear McCaffrey will lead Carolina's rushing attack this season, with quarterback Cam Newton another dynamic runner himself. Knowing that, Anderson, a former starter with the Broncos, will likely have to settle for complementary touches with his new team. Although Anderson is especially useful in short-yard situations, fullback Alex Armah was called upon for a one-yard touchdown plunge late Sunday. That represented a missed opportunity for Anderson, but his pedigree and productivity should often make him the top alternative to McCaffrey and Newton on the ground.
