The Broncos plan on deploying a RB-by-committee this season. “You need two or three guys that can carry the load," HC Vance Joseph said from OTAs on Monday. "It is no longer a one-guy position." Denver has built up some backfield depth this offseason by drafting De'Angelo Henderson and signing Jamaal Charles. They join returnees C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. Anderson will head to training camp as the favorite for touches, but we'll be keeping an eye on how the work will be divvied. You can currently land Anderson in the 5th round of MFL10s, which feels like a fair price.
The Lions have released RB C.J. Anderson and signed RB Paul Perkins. Anderson played 29% of Detroit's offensive snaps and handled 11 carries in Week 1. But he dipped to a 20% snap rate and 5 carries in Week 2. He averaged an ugly 2.7 yards on his 16 attempts. Perkins hasn't tallied a regular-season touch since 2017 and sports a career 3.6 yards-per-attempt average. He shouldn't be a big factor in this backfield. We'd consider this move good news for RB Kerryon Johnson, although it looks like Detroit wants to get RB Ty Johnson involved, too.
The Lions have reached a 1-year deal with RB C.J. Anderson, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That supports HC Matt Patricia's recently stated plan of continuing to deploy a backfield committee. Anderson joins a group that will also return Kerryon Johnson, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner (who got a new 1-year deal). Anderson came on with the Rams at the end of last season after doing next-to-nothing with the Panthers. L.A. opted for youngster Malcolm Brown, however, behind Todd Gurley. Anderson threatens to take goal-line carries from Johnson, though the 2018 rookie remains the highest-upside RB in Detroit. This will be 1 of the more interesting backfield's to project over the next 2 months.
The Rams are signing RB C.J. Anderson, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. It's Todd Gurley insurance. Gurley is tentatively expected to play against the Cardinals this weekend. But if he can't, we'd likely see a committee with Anderson, John Kelly and potentially Justin Davis, who suffered a shoulder injury last week.
The Raiders have released RB C.J. Anderson. OK then. Anderson lasted a week in Oakland and didn't play in a game. Doug Martin remains locked in as the Raiders' lead ball-carrier the rest of the way.
The Raiders have signed RB C.J. Anderson. The 27-year-old was stuck behind Christian McCaffrey in Carolina, carrying just 24 times in 9 appearances. He averaged a decent 4.3 yards per carry. Oakland probably wants to see what Anderson has left in the tank and if he can help in 2019 and beyond. Don't be surprised if he steals a handful of carries per game from Doug Martin.
