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

Devontae Booker (knee), who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, could push Anderson and Ronnie Hillman for playing time, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Widely viewed as one of the three or four best running backs in his class, the 23-year-old fell to Denver in the fourth round, perhaps because of concerns regarding his knee and age. Now three months removed from surgery to repair a torn meniscus, Booker should be ready for the start of training camp, where he'll likely kick things off as the third or fourth running back on the depth chart. The rookie should at least have a shot to compete for a role, but Anderson remains the clear favorite for lead-back duties, having signed a four-year, $18 million contract this offseason. Ronnie Hillman could also be in the mix, as the Broncos may need to lean heavily on their running game.
The Broncos told Anderson that they are matching Miami's offer sheet, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Broncos clearly made a mistake when they gave Anderson an original-round tender instead of a second-round tender, as the latter cost just $882,000 more and almost certainly would have dissuaded other teams from signing him to an offer sheet. Now, the Broncos will match Miami's four-year, $18 million offer, leaving little doubt that they intend for Anderson to lead the backfield in 2016. Ronnie Hillman, who split work with Anderson for the majority of 2015, is an unrestricted free agent and remains unsigned. The Dolphins, meanwhile, will have to find another running back to compete with Jay Ajayi.
The Dolphins have signed Anderson to an offer sheet, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Anderson's offer sheet with the Dolphins is reportedly a four-year deal worth $18 million. The Broncos, who continue to take offseason personnel hits, now have five days to match Miami's offer or lose Anderson. Meanwhile, fellow running back Ronnie Hillman is eligible to leave the Broncos as an unrestricted free agent.
Anderson is visiting with the Dolphins on Thursday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

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.
