2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
With the deterioration of Peyton Manningís health on full display toward the end of the 2014 season, most believed that the Broncos would lean heavily on their running game in 2015, which would make their starter Ė C.J. Anderson Ė a hot commodity in fantasy circles. Andersonís price peaked right about in the middle of the fantasy draft season this past year, which meant that he was being taken as early as a top 5 overall draft pick in some leagues. Most of us knew the risk was there, that Anderson was perhaps not the player that we saw near the end of 2014 when he was one of the most efficient backs in the league, but few of us could have projected the misery that Anderson would cause his fantasy owners throughout the season, when he finished the year with just 720 yards and five touchdowns.

The positive for Anderson is that while he was one of the most horrendous and impactful fantasy disappointments of the 2015 season, he did produce acceptable numbers toward the end of the season, including the playoffs. While that information is hardly a consolation prize for those who were burned by Anderson on draft day, it does give us some insight as to how the Broncos view their backfield heading into 2016.

It appears that the job is primarily going to be Andersonís, but donít fall into the trap of believing that he is going to be getting 300 touches. Ronnie Hillman and perhaps other players in this backfield will see some playing time, if for no other reason than to keep Anderson healthy for the long run, and that could limit his upside particularly early in the season. He wonít cost nearly as much as he did a season ago, but Anderson presents about the same upside that he did in 2015 when he was a first round fantasy pick. The return on investment has a much better chance of being there in 2016.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury C.J. Anderson to miss at least a few weeks
May miss rest of season, seeking second opinion
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 26, 4:35 pm

Denver Broncos
C.J. Anderson is expected to miss at least a few weeks with a bone bruise in his right knee, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported, via sources informed of the injury. Anderson is seeking a second medical opinion on the knee. Depending on the results, it's possible that he could miss the remainder of the season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added, per a source with knowledge of the situation. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Updating previous reports, it looks like C.J. Anderson's knee injury may be serious enough to keep him out for the remainder of the year. Don't drop him until more information on the length of his recovery is determined. In the meantime, rookie Devontae Booker's fantasy stock soars from RB3/Flex option to RB1 status for the foreseeable future. He's been able to accrue a 5.2 YPC over the past month and has an extremely favorable schedule in November.


Injury C.J. Anderson being evaluated for knee injury
Missed practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 26, 1:45 pm

Denver Broncos
As the Denver Broncos begin preparations for their game Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, one player will be absent from practice Wednesday. Running back C.J. Anderson is currently getting a second medical opinion on a right knee injury, sources told 9NEWS. Anderson suffered during the game Monday night against the Houston Texans. There is hope the injury could be minor in nature, although itís also possible he could miss an extended period. (9 News)

FFToday's Take: Anderson has been losing snaps to rookie Devontae Booker in the last couple weeks and now is getting his knee looked at which he injured but played through on Monday night. If Anderson misses any time, Booker will become a borderline RB1 play.


Both Denver backs run wild on Texans
Devontae Booker and C.J. Anderson combine for 190 rushing yards in win
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 25, 9:13 am

Denver Broncos
C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker split the reps fairly evenly and each kept the Texans defense off guard trying to combat for their contrasting styles. They combined for a season-high 190 rushing yards, two touchdowns and a 5.6 yards per carry average. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Both backs are viable RB2s facing the Chargers in Week 8, with Anderson having more upside as a straight-ahead runner and Booker filling in more on passing downs.
