Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Ends season with 1,231 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson finished the season with 1,007 yards and three touchdowns on 245 carries and 28 catches for 224 yards and a touchdown during the 2017 season. He lost one fumble on the year.

Anderson set career highs in touches and yards in 2017, a product of finally managing to avoid nagging injuries through an entire season. Head coach Vance Joseph has complimented Anderson's endurance and the shape he has been in all season and prioritized getting Anderson to his first 1,000-yard rushing season during the closing weeks of 2017. Anderson did well to bounce back from an injury-shortened 2016 and was often the most dependable weapon in a dull Denver attack. Still, it's more likely than not that Anderson's 1,000-yard campaign will be used to audition for another team. Anderson is owed $4.5 million next season and Denver does not owe him anything if he's cut. With a new position coach and young, up-and-coming potential replacements in Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson, the Broncos can probably find a more effective way to spend that $4.5 million.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Collects 61 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson ran for 61 yards on 18 carries during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs.

Anderson's yardage brought him to 1,007 on the year - his first 1,000-yard season. After he reached the total, Denver sat Anderson to get a look at Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson. The move might have been more than symbolic. The Broncos can either pay Anderson $4.5 million next year or let him walk with no cap penalty. With two promising young backs and plenty of holes to fill, Anderson likely carried the ball for the last time in orange.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Gathers 133 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson pounded the ball for 88 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and added 45 yards on seven catches during Sunday's 27-11 loss in Washington. He added a two-point conversion during the contest.

The game was all but over when Anderson took an inside run into the end zone for a five-yard touchdown in the game's closing moments. Little has gone right for Denver offensively this year, but Anderson has put together his best overall season and is heating up late. Anderson has now topped 100 total yards in three of his last four games. He's 54 rushing yards shy of his first career 1,000-yard season. He's a fair bet to reach that mark with his lone remaining game coming against a Kansas City squad that let him pick up 78 yards on 15 carries in Week 8.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Generates season-best rushing total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed 30 times for 158 yards and failed to bring in his only target in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts.

The 26-year-old saw almost three times the rushing touches of backfield mate Devontae Booker, reconfirming his status as the clear-cut lead back. Anderson's rushing yardage was easily his highest of the season, and he's now logged 52 carries overall in the last pair of contests. He'll look to continue parlaying his robust volume into strong production when he faces the Redskins in a Week 16 road tilt.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Sees 24 touches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson carried the ball 22 times for 48 yards and caught both passes directed his way for 25 more yards in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Jets.

That many carries in a blowout victory might have deked Anderson's fantasy owners into thinking he'd had a big day, but he was only able to manage 2.2 YPC. On the plus side, Devontae Booker had a similarly poor day with just 22 yards on nine carries. Meanwhile, the 26-year-old touched the ball more than he had since Week 4 and probably will retain the feature-back role heading into a favorable Week 15 matchup with Indianapolis.
