2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Dec-06-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): This second round bust finally delivered an impact game. He broke a 48-yard TD run in overtime to give Denver fans one of the highest moments in recent history vs. the Patriots. He finished with 153 combined yards on 19 touches, with two TDs and four catches. It was his second 100-yard rushing game in the last five games. On the year, Anderson averages 12.5 touches per game. Last season he had 96 combined yards and two catches on the road against the Chargers, San Diego allows 4.9 YPC and 15 TDs to RBs, so a Denver back has a very good chance to come in. Over the last five games, he has averaged 6.3 YPC. Excellent backend flier with impact upside if he can secure 20+ touches.

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.

2.03 RotoExperts/FNTSY @allinkid - Thrilled again. Anderson is my top-rated running back for 2015. Gary Kubiak in charge with an offense running more to keep Peyton Manning fresh? Anderson will dominate. (Comments Added Thu Aug 6 4:05:57 p.m. ET 2015)
