2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the hottest names in fantasy football this offseason has been Denver running back C.J. Anderson. Anderson burst onto the scene in the second half of the 2014 when he compiled 1,091 total yards and 10 touchdowns over the final eight games of the regular season. Anderson got starting the job after injuries to both Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Now being referred to as the “1A” running back in Denver by the media, Anderson figures to get the bulk of the carries in what figures to be a run-heavy offense under new head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak’s system has been kind to running backs in the past putting names like Arian Foster and Justin Forsett onto the fantasy radar despite both players being forgotten in the NFL Draft. Patient runners who can make the right cut at the right time and are willing to participate in the passing game both as a pass catcher and as a blocker is what works in Kubiak’s system. Anderson provides all of those qualities and despite going undrafted in 2013, he did shine in the only real opportunity he has been given.

The real question is centered on how much the combination of Ball and Hillman will be involved in the offense. While they are competing for the “1B” job, both players figure to factor in somehow and given their injury histories, there is a good chance that we will see each of them occupy the “1B” role to some point this season. Anderson figures to be the RB to own, however, as Kubiak has been more than willing to utilize one “bellcow” running back in the past while giving scraps to the other players in the offense when necessary. Anderson should be considered a low-end first round draft pick with the potential of developing into a top five back if he stays healthy all season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Hillman practices, C.J. Anderson sits Friday
Ronnie Hillman expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 11, 2:00 pm

Denver Broncos
Looked like C.J. Anderson tried to practice, but after test took off pad shell and helmet. Doesn't look good for Sunday. (Mike Klis on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Anderson missed practice all week with a sore ankle and it appears Ronnie Hillman (foot) will get the start. However, Hillman's lone practice Friday and it won't be a shock if Juwan Thompson sees significant action against the Raiders on Sunday. Hillman will be a shaky RB2.


Injury Broncos expect Anderson, Hillman at practice FRI
Kubiak leaves door open for Juwan Thompson to start Week 14
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 10, 5:30 pm

Denver Broncos
Broncos HC Gary Kubiak expects C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman to go full tomorrow. Said there's a chance Juwan Thompson could start. (Nicki Jhabvala on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Anderson is trying to recover from an ankle injury while Hillman is battling a foot issue. The fact that Kubiak is willing to concede Thompson could be the starter this week suggests that Hillman's injury, which did not force him from Week 13, could be nearly as serious as the injury that forced Anderson from the same game. This is quickly shaping up as a situation to avoid despite what should be a plus-matchup for the Denver running game.
