2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Nov-25-2015 by Shawn Childs


Update (11/25): Anderson has been nothing short of a disaster this season. He is among the biggest busts of the season considering many considered him an RB1 this year. So far he's rushed for just 383 yards and one TD. Due to his subpar performance he has lost his starting job to Ronnie Hillman. The Broncos' backfield is now a fully blown unproductive split-back system. Anderson is barely worth a roster spot.

C.J. earned extended playing time in week 12, which led to 143 touches over five games (28.6 touches per game). His success in the red zone (nine TDs) ended up killing Manning's value in TDs over the last six games of the year. On the year, Anderson averaged 4.7 yard per rush and 9.5 yards per catch. There's a lot to like about C.J. headed into 2015, but he'll have more competition for playing time with RB Montee Ball expected to be back in the mix. There were some reports in the offseason that Anderson had some conditioning issues, which comes down to motivation. His success last year surely clears the path for a great opportunity. I expect at least 250 carries and 50 receptions, which will result in 1700 yards and double digit TDs. These stats project to 280-290 fantasy points in PPR leagues with even more upside. He has a top five RB opportunity with age on his side.
