Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Shows up Elliott
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson pounded the ball for 118 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries and added another 36 yards and a touchdown on three catches in Sunday's 42-17 win over Dallas.

Ezekiel Elliott's status and potential impact on the game dominated discussions ahead of Sunday, but it was Anderson who controlled the contest. Anderson got humming early with a 28-yard gain on the team's second drive. He then followed up with a 16-yard touchdown grab on a quick pivot on third and long in the second quarter and scampered for a 23-yard touchdown run in the third. Anderson, a notorious slow-starter, has reached 88 total yards in each of the Broncos' first two contests of the season - a total he reached just five times in his previous 22 regular-season games. The return of Devontae Booker as soon as next week is worth monitoring, but it's hard to picture Denver shying too far away from Anderson while he's rolling.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Rushes 20 times for 81 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed 20 times for 81 yards and caught one of three targets for seven yards during Monday's win over the Chargers.

The 26-year-old back showed promising burst and hit the holes provided to him well early on. Anderson doubled Jamaal Charles' rushing attempts, so it's clear that Anderson is the lead back. While Charles also ran well (10 attempts for 40 yards), he also fumbled in the fourth quarter. It's worth noting that Anderson had a red-zone touchdown run called back because of an illegal-shift penalty, too. His fantasy value is on the rise with so many committee backfields around the league, and the Denver offense showing well for the majority of Monday's game. Charles' costly fumble also strengthens Anderson's stranglehold of top position on the depth chart.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Breaks through for score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson rushed for 31 yards and a touchdown on nine carries and added seven yards on two catches in Saturday's preseason win over the Packers.

It wasn't all smooth sailing for Anderson, as four of his carries went for no gain or a loss, but he was able to put the team on the board with a 16-yard run off tackle for a score late in the first quarter. The Broncos offense will likely go as Anderson does this season, and it will be refreshing for him to return to an offense similar to that which he broke into the league with in 2014. That said, Denver is deep at the position with youngsters De'Angelo Henderson and Devontae Booker (wrist), plus veterans such as Jamaal Charles. Anderson should put up nice numbers, but he won't have a stranglehold on the position.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Stays busy in SF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson had seven carries for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught all three of his targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

With Paxton Lynch starting and rarely looking downfield, Anderson was the clear centerpiece of the Denver offense while playing the first four drives of the game. The 26-year-old back caught a seven-yard pass on a 3rd-and-6 on the opening drive, and then got three straight carries from the one-yard line on the next series, converting the last of those for a touchdown. With Jamaal Charles (knee) and Devontae Booker (wrist) unavailable, De'Angelo Henderson operated as the No. 2 back and gained 50 yards on eight touches. Anderson is locked in as the starter, but Denver figures to use some combination of Charles, Booker and Henderson to even out the workload.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Gets his feet wet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In his first game action since tearing his meniscus, Anderson rushed for 21 yards on five carries in Thursday's preseason win over Chicago.

None of Anderson's runs were particularly spectacular, but he was able to keep the team in manageable down and distances while he was in the game. Unless something changes drastically in the next week or two, the Broncos quarterback situation will be uninspiring. Playing behind what could be four new starters on the offensive line, Anderson figures to be the prime factor for Denver's offensive fortunes this season.
