2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury No workhorse role for Gurley in Super Bowl LIII
Rams want C.J. Anderson back in 2019
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Feb 3, 9:00 am

Based on a variety of factors, including his knee and his conditioning, Todd Gurley and former free-agent pickup C.J. Anderson are expected to split carries. That was the case in the NFC title game win over the Saints, and it should be the case on Sunday. According to Rams running backs coach Skip Peete, they essentially told Gurley this two Sundays ago. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Gurley could lead the Rams in rushing and be the better fantasy back but it won't be because he's getting all the carries. The Rams insist that Gurley is 100 percent healthy but it's hard to buy that line of thinking. He's had plenty of time to get his conditioning to a level to play the majority of snaps. IF the Rams are simply going to transition to a two-man committee, this will but a damper on Gurley's fantasy value in 2019.


Injury Gurley says he's not injured
Played 32 snaps in NFC Conference Championship
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jan 21, 8:15 am

The Rams' star running back stood on the sideline with his helmet on throughout most of the game and hardly appeared in action as backup C.J. Anderson rushed for 44 yards on 16 carries. "I was sorry as hell today," Gurley said after the game. "I was sorry. So, C.J. did his thing and the whole team did its thing." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Todd Gurley touched the ball five times making it difficult to believe he's not injured in some fashion. Yes, he didn't play well, but he's head and shoulders a better player than fellow running back C.J. Anderson. Gurley played only 32 snaps allowing Anderson to rush 16 times for 44 yards. Gurley will have two weeks to get ready for the Super Bowl.


Injury Gurley misses practice Thursday
Not practicing all week would not necessarily keep him from playing
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 27, 4:00 pm

Sean McVay said Todd Gurley won't practice Thursday. Said not practicing all week would not necessarily keep him from playing vs. 49ers. Said Gurley suffered similar symptoms after season opener vs. Oakland. (Gary Klein on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gurley was inactive Week 16 as yet to practice this week so his status remains up in the air. C.J. Anderson ran for 167 yards on 20 carries against Cardinals and would be in the RB1 conversation against the 49ers if Gurley sits.


Injury Positive outlook on Gurley
Expected to play barring pregame setback
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 23, 11:00 am

Unless Rams’ RB Todd Gurley has a setback in pregame warmups today, the team is planning for him to play vs. Cardinals, per source. Rams think he has felt better as week has progressed. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sounds like Gurley is going to play today but how much he plays will be the story. It won't be a shock to see C.J. Anderson and John Kelly also get some work.


Injury Todd Gurley a gametime decision
Missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 21, 1:30 pm

McVay indicated Todd Gurley will have a pregame workout Sunday and then decision will be made just before inactives must be submitted. Justin Davis also questionable, so C.J. Anderson would be next man up. (Rich Hammond on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gurley is battling a knee injury and his availability for Sunday is question. Even if he does play, he could be limited in some fashion making this situation a headache for fantasy owners. With Davis banged up as well, Anderson could be throw into the fire against the Cardinals.


Injury Gurley unlikely to practice all week
Status uncertain for Week 16
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 20, 10:35 pm

Rams RB Todd Gurley has a knee injury, and there’s a chance he may not be able to play on Sunday. Gurley has yet to practice this week. Asked by reporters on Thursday whether he could play if the game were today, Gurley said, “That’s a tough question. I haven’t tried to run. So, yeah, that’s a tough question.” If he plays, it likely will happen without practice; he said he doesn’t plan on participating at all this week. (Pro Football Talk - Mike Florio)

FFToday's Take: Not exactly the news fantasy owners were hoping for during championship week. Gurley is hoping to play, but it sounds as if he is far from a sure thing. Malcolm Brown is already done for the season and Justin Davis is also not practicing, while may leave rookie John Kelly and recent signing C.J. Anderson as the only two active backs in a highly favorable matchup against Arizona. If Gurley plays, owners should expect a reduced workload at the very least.


Injury Doug Martin's status uncertain for Week 14
C.J. Anderson signing makes more sense, Jalen Richard trending up
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Dec 5, 2:50 pm

Oakland Raiders
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.
