C.J. Anderson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Anderson will enter training camp atop the depth chart, and Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak suggested the team would like to have a three-down running back, ESPN.com reports. "I think in this league as coaches you look for guys that can be three-down players," Kubiak said. "When you have two-down players, that's fine, but it's just very difficult in the game standpoint and getting them the ball and calling the game when you're not out there all the time. [Anderson] has a knack for protection, he's very bright in protection. So he's a guy that’s not going to leave the field -- as much as he can stand. And that's what the great ones do, so that gives him an excellent chance."

Montee Ball said he thinks he can climb back to the top of the depth chart, but it increasingly appears that may be a futile effort. Anderson showed up to OTAs in good shape and took most of the first-team reps after starring for Denver down the stretch last season. He doesn't have breakaway speed or a ton of experience, but it's difficult to poke holes in the 24-year-old's well-rounded skill set. If Anderson solidifies his role as a three-down workhorse, Ball and Ronnie Hillman will be left to fight for scraps. The lead running back in a Peyton Manning offense has a sky-high ceiling in nearly any circumstance, but it's still worth noting that the Broncos' offensive line will be replacing four starters from last season's playoff loss.
Anderson checked in at 221 pounds Monday, down from 223 pounds toward the end of last season, the Denver Post reports. "I am taking this to the next level," Anderson said Monday. "Everybody — fans, media, coaches — has this huge expectation of me. And I have huge expectations of myself. My motto this year is: 'Prove everybody right.'"

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Anderson suffered a preseason knee injury that knocked him out for the first seven weeks of last season and barely saw the field even when healthy. However, he managed to make an impression with his seven regular-season carries and even got three touches in the Super Bowl. With Knowshon Moreno having departed for Miami, Anderson's slated to compete with Montee Ball for No. 1 duties this year in Denver. Ball's the odds-on favorite to come away with that job, but it's worth noting that the Broncos clearly consider the undrafted Anderson to be worthier competition for starter's reps than Ronnie Hillman, who appears pigeonholed into third-down duty.

2013

Will likely spend the season on the practice squad, as there are simply too many running backs ahead of him on the depth chart.
