Summary

Sixth-year veteran C.J. Anderson signed as a free agent with Detroit in the offseason to backup Kerryon Johnson. It is Anderson's fourth team in the last 18 months. After a career season for the Broncos in 2017 (1,007 rushing yards), Anderson signed in Carolina to backup Christian McCaffrey in 2018. He barely saw the field, rushing for under 100 yards total in nine games before being cut. After spending a month out of the NFL entirely, Anderson signed with the Los Angeles Rams and promptly ripped off three straight games with over 100 rushing yards and at least one touchdown filling in for Todd Gurley. He carried it a whopping 23 times in a playoff win over the Cowboys. Despite the strong finish to the 2018 season, Anderson didn't generate much interest as a free agent and signed a one-year deal with a maximum value of $1.5M. He isn't likely to have much fantasy value except as a handcuff to Johnson. (May 23)
