The Los Angeles Rams would like to bring running back C.J. Anderson back for the 2019 season, according to sources. Anderson played in nine games with the Panthers to begin the year but didn't have much of a role behind Christian McCaffrey and was released. He rushed for 299 yards and two touchdowns in his two regular season games for LA with Todd Gurley injured late in the season and also went over 100 yards in the Divisional round win over the Cowboys, so he's been a huge late-season addition for the Rams during their Super Bowl push. If Anderson returns, he'd be nothing more than a fantasy handcuff for Gurley owners, however.
Los Angeles Rams running back C.J. Anderson took on the role of lead back for the Rams after Todd Gurley was forced to the sideline for most of the game. Anderson rushed 16 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for five yards versus the Saints. He was not able to do much damage, but the Saints have one of the best run defenses in the league. Todd Gurley is expected to be fine for the Super Bowl, but Anderson has clearly earned a role on this team.
Los Angeles Rams running back C.J. Anderson was just as good as lead back Todd Gurley in the 30-22 victory over the Cowboys. Anderson rushed 23 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the divisional round win. Anderson's first game for the Rams was in Week 16 and he's already become a focal point of the Rams rushing game. He'll be a sleeper candidate for DFS contests next week. However, after all these 100 yard outbursts it's hard to believe anyone is sleeping on Anderson anymore.
