|With the exit of Jonathan Stewart in the off-season, there was a void at the RB position in Carolina, particularly in the early downs and Anderson was quickly added to the roster once he was made available. Anderson has been considered as disappointment to fantasy owners ever since his breakout campaign of 2014, but he's coming off of a 1,000-yard season with a 4.1 yards per carry average.
Anderson appears to be a value at the RB position with his new team. Although he lacks some of the upside, he'd poised to inherit a sizeable portion of Stewart's 200 carries. Stewart finished as the RB33 in standard scoring leagues despite rushing for just 3.4 yards per carry and only handling 15 targets. Anderson is currently being drafted as the RB40, according to Fantasy Football Calculator, and if he can maintain an average near 4 yards per carry, he should be positioned well to outperform his draft position. Anderson should be a target for drafters who start WR heavy in standard scoring leagues.
| Doug Martin's status uncertain for Week 14|
C.J. Anderson signing makes more sense, Jalen Richard trending up

|Scott Bair on Twitter: "Doug Martin has an injured knee. Gruden says his status is uncertain for Sunday. Raiders needed another runner, which is why they signed C.J. Anderson." (Scott Bair on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jalen Richard is the main beneficiary if Martin is out, since it might take a while for Anderson to get up to speed. Richard is a solid RB3/flex play this week and should pile up some decent PPR stats in garbage time.
