Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 10 vs PIT (2 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It wasn't until the fourth quarter with the game well out of hand that C.J. Anderson got his first touch of the ball, a reminder of how far down the pecking order he is in the offense. After a handful of carries, the Panthers were content to get out of Pittsburgh with their tails firmly tucked between their legs. Anderson was released over the weekend and he didn't seem too broken up about it.

2018 Week 9 vs TB (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Anderson was the forgotten man once more in the Panthers offense, getting just one carry and featuring little in the expansive attack the team is relying on.

2018 Week 8 vs BAL (5 / 20 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Anderson got rotated in on a few snaps, including some that featured both he and Christian McCaffrey in the backfield at the same time. Mostly Anderson was run between the tackles, hard-charging but showing little burst. The Ravens remained discipline with their tackling all game, with Anderson unable to break through for longer chunks.

2018 Week 5 vs NYG (4 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Anderson played a distant second fiddle to Christian McCaffrey in this game, getting just a handful of carries. Unable to get into a rhythm, Anderson was stuffed on his totes in the second half, as the Giants did well to repel Carolina's rushing attack.

2018 Week 3 vs CIN (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 24 / 1 rec)

C.J. Anderson played second fiddle to the irrepressible Christian McCaffrey but managed to take advantage of all the defensive attention on his backfield mate. With both backs flanking Newton in the shotgun, McCaffrey veered out to the right flat, forcing a reaction from Cincinnati's defenders. Meanwhile, Anderson sneaked out to the left, caught a lofted pass from Newton and trucked upfield behind some excellent blocks from his offensive linemen. Anderson waltzed into the end zone for the easy score. Otherwise, Anderson was only on the field for two more snaps and contributed little.

2018 Week 2 vs ATL (3 / 31 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Anderson was almost a non-factor in this contest, with an unfavourable game script putting his style of play on ice. The Panthers started off the game with Anderson as the lone back and Christian McCaffrey flanked out wide, handing it to the former Bronco for a nice 23-yard scamper behind a pulling guard. After that point, however, Anderson was left to feed off scraps as McCaffrey continued to boss the backfield touches. Late in the game, Anderson came in to spell McCaffrey and committed a crucial error, a pass caroming off his hands on a simple check down and landing in the hands of a grateful Atlanta defender.

2018 Week 1 vs DAL (7 / 35 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Anderson played second fiddle to Christian McCaffrey throughout, but gave the coaching staff plenty to ponder. The fleet of foot Anderson showed terrific patience, vision and burst to pick up small chunks of yardage that helped to wear the Cowboys down. Anderson spotted cutbacks and lapses by Dallas quickly and exploited them. His best carry was a beautiful red zone run; bending it left initially, Anderson spotted a crease between center and right guard, sidestepping into and then through the gap, weaving his way past would-be tacklers and unfortunately getting tackled at the one-yard line.

Raiders | Oakland takes chance on C.J. Anderson (Tue Dec 4, 07:20 PM) - Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Panthers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, Dec. 4, according to a source.

Our View: It's an interesting move for Anderson...and for the Raiders. Anderson will now compete with Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington for playing time. He's a depth move with the ability to emerge as a lead back if the Raiders are tired of their other backs (they all three lost fumbles against the Chiefs on Sunday). Anderson will wear no.35 for the Raiders.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West returning to KC (Mon Dec 3, 01:07 PM) - Free-agent RB Charcandrick West (Jets) is expected to sign an undisclosed contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in the near future, according to's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: The Chiefs worked out West and free agent C.J. Anderson on Monday but decided to go with the guy who had four years worth of experience with the team. Anderson had a good workout according to reports and is ready if needed. West will compete for snaps as a change-of-pace back behind starter Spencer Ware.
