Bengals add Anderson | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Bengals added Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Anderson had trouble staying healthy at Norman, suffering a broken leg in 2015, a fractured vertebrae in 2016 and a torn ACL last year. He flashed in his healthy 2017 campaign, ripping off 1,161 yards and 13 TDs on 188 carries (6.2 YPC) and hauling in 17 balls for 281 yards (16.5 YPC) and 5 more scores. The 6’0, 224-pounder wasn’t able to test during the pre-draft process but looks like a plus athlete on tape. There’s some upside here, but Anderson’s injury history is a major concern. He joins fellow rookie RB Trayveon Williams behind Joe Mixon and Gio Bernard in Cincinnati’s backfield.

Recent Shark Bites

The Bengals believe rookie RB Rodney Anderson tore his right ACL in Thursday night's preseason finale, ESPN reports. That would make the 2nd straight season in which Anderson tore the ligament in that knee. We've seen a few recent examples of players returning from multiple ACL tears -- even to the same knee -- but the injury doesn't bode well for the 6th-rounder's long-term outlook. If he's on your dynasty roster bubble, feel free to let Anderson go. The situation helps the outlook of fellow Cincinnati 6th-round RB Trayveon Williams, though. Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is in the final year of his contract.
