RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After spending 2012 on the Broncos' practice squad and then seeing little action in 2013 once he recovered from a preseason knee injury, Anderson got just 17 carries through the first eight games last year, and it seemed like he might never get a chance to show what he could do. His fortunes changed dramatically in Week 10, however, as a 51-yard TD reception thrust him into the spotlight and he seized his chance. A short, thick power back, Anderson's game is built around his exceptional burst, balance and vision, allowing him to attack a hole and pick his way through traffic until he gets to the second level. While he doesn't run with tremendous power or speed, his low pad level allows him to grind out plenty of extra yards, and he ranked among the league leaders in missed or broken tackles with 59, which is all the more impressive considering his production all came in essentially half a season. Anderson excels both as a receiver and pass blocker, and his overall skill set should make him a great fit in new coach Gary Kubiak's offense. Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball remain in the picture, but Anderson is finally the clear top back in Denver and seems poised for a big season.

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.
