2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the hottest names in fantasy football this offseason has been Denver running back C.J. Anderson. Anderson burst onto the scene in the second half of the 2014 when he compiled 1,091 total yards and 10 touchdowns over the final eight games of the regular season. Anderson got starting the job after injuries to both Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Now being referred to as the “1A” running back in Denver by the media, Anderson figures to get the bulk of the carries in what figures to be a run-heavy offense under new head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak’s system has been kind to running backs in the past putting names like Arian Foster and Justin Forsett onto the fantasy radar despite both players being forgotten in the NFL Draft. Patient runners who can make the right cut at the right time and are willing to participate in the passing game both as a pass catcher and as a blocker is what works in Kubiak’s system. Anderson provides all of those qualities and despite going undrafted in 2013, he did shine in the only real opportunity he has been given.

The real question is centered on how much the combination of Ball and Hillman will be involved in the offense. While they are competing for the “1B” job, both players figure to factor in somehow and given their injury histories, there is a good chance that we will see each of them occupy the “1B” role to some point this season. Anderson figures to be the RB to own, however, as Kubiak has been more than willing to utilize one “bellcow” running back in the past while giving scraps to the other players in the offense when necessary. Anderson should be considered a low-end first round draft pick with the potential of developing into a top five back if he stays healthy all season.

Hillman now the 1B runner in Denver?
RB has 120 yards on 16 carries through two exhibition games
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 24, 3:45 pm

Denver Broncos
In two preseason games, Ronnie Hillman sped past Montee Ball on the depth chart on his way to 120 yards rushing on 16 carries - 7.5 yards per carry. Hillman is now the 1B runner behind C.J. Anderson. "I'm not worried about 1B and all that because that'll drive you crazy," Hillman said. Meanwhile, second-year back Juwan Thompson may also be moving past Ball, whose slump continues. Hilllman (8 carries, 54 yards), Thompson (five carries, 32 yards) and Anderson (4 for 24) all averaged at least 6.0 yards per carry. (9News Denver)

FFToday's Take: It's important to remember a month ago that Thompson was "making a push for No. 2" and Ball has been the second man through in both of the Broncos' preseason games. The most likely scenario all along as been Anderson seeing roughly 18-20 touches/game and the second back - whomever that ends up being - collecting the scraps. HC Gary Kubiak has enjoyed success with this setup before, most recently in 2011 when Arian Foster finished as the RB4 and Ben Tate the RB28 in Houston.
