2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Broncos perceived starter at running back heading into the 2017 season, C.J. Anderson is now entrenched in what now could be a three player battle for snaps now that Denver added veteran Jamaal Charles to the mix. Anderson has spent the most time in Denver and has the trust of the coaching staff, but his production took a dip this past season as he fell from a 4.7 yards per carry average in both 2014 and 2015 to a 4.0 yards per carry average in 2016. Still, there are many questions about the other backs on this roster, which should mean that Anderson is in line to get the biggest share of the touches. One positive skill that Anderson has going for him is his hands. He's fumbled just three times in over 500 career touches and his reliability will be an important consideration for the Denver coaching staff as the team looks to get back to the playoffs in 2017. Anderson is more of an RB3 for fantasy purposes right now, but he could find himself as an RB2 on some rosters. Understand however, that his upside is limited due to the crowded nature of this Denver backfield.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury RB Booker expected back early in regular season
HC Vance Joseph comments on RBBC in Denver
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 16, 8:30 am

Denver Broncos
Joseph has said he plans to take a committee approach with his running backs. “The running back position, you need two or three guys who are going to carry the load,” he said in May. “It’s no longer a one-guy position.” Anderson is the starter and returned to camp this year in the best shape of his career. And although Booker quickly went down with a wrist injury, he is expected to be back early in the regular season and the team has high hopes for him. Joseph said that while Booker is listed as the No. 2 back on the depth chart, he was pushing to be No. 1 before the injury. That says a lot. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Denver's rushing attack is lining up to be a nightmare for fantasy owners to decipher. Knowing that the coaching staff feels C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker (wrist) are that close on the depth chart while reserving a role for Jamaal Charles and possibly rookie De'Angelo Henderson will prevent anyone in Denver's backfield from being more than a RB3/Flex this season.


De'Angelo Henderson shines in preseason opener
Denver RB was drafted in sixth round
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 15, 8:50 am

Denver Broncos
DeVontae Booker, Denver’s No. 2 running back who had been pushing to be No. 1, suffered a fractured wrist when camp opened, and he'll be out for the rest of camp. They also have Jamaal Charles, Stevan Ridley and along with the arrival of rookie De'Angelo Henderson (54 yards and a long TD run in the preseason opener), see the return of No. 1 RB C.J. Anderson, Booker and Juwan Thompson. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: “What we saw tonight is what he’s been since we drafted the guy in the spring,” first-year Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said of Henderson after the 24-17 victory over the Bears. “So I’m not surprised to see that tonight.” The Broncos have a lot of talented backs and are looking at a full-fledged competition for touches in the backfield.
