Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Comes down with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Considering he's likely dealing with only a short-term concern, Anderson is a good bet to get past the ailment before Sunday's divisional matchup with the Falcons. Working behind Christian McCaffrey in the Week 1 victory over the Cowboys, Anderson earned 12 offensive snaps, which he parlayed into seven carries for 35 yards.

Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Works behind McCaffrey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson gained 39 yards on eight carries and nine yards on two catches in Friday's preseason game against Miami.

Anderson got his first carry with 4:29 remaining in the second quarter, at which point Christian McCaffrey had already piled up 120 yards on nine touches, including a 71-yard rushing score. Panthers coach Ron Rivera has been clear about his desire to get McCaffrey more touches this season, and Friday's game wasn't encouraging for the idea of Anderson matching Jonathan Stewart's 2017 mark of 13.2 carries per game. There should still be room for Anderson to contribute, but it does seem the Carolina backfield will primarily be McCaffrey's show.

Panthers' C.J. Anderson: Set to work in tandem with McCaffrey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site compares the offseason addition of Anderson to the team's signing of Stephen Davis in 2003.

That comparison is probably pushing things, considering that Davis rushed for 1,444 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games in his first season for Carolina. Still, Anderson is a useful back, who is capable of running hard between the tackles as well as catching the ball out of the backfield. With 2017 first-rounder Christian McCaffrey also in the mix, Anderson isn't likely to log abundant targets in the Panthers passing game, but he should at least fill the sort of early down role that Jonathan Stewart handled last season en route to averaging 3.4 yards on 198 carries. Meanwhile, Anderson logged 1,007 yards on 245 carries (4.1 YPC) for the Broncos in 2017. While the presence of McCaffrey limits Anderson's fantasy ceiling, the 27-year-old should earn enough of a workload to maintain a modest weekly floor, which would of course spike in the event of an injury to McCaffrey.
