Lions Release C.J. Anderson, Claim Paul Perkins

The Detroit Lions released running back C.J. Anderson on Tuesday and claimed running back Paul Perkins off waivers from the Giants in a corresponding move. If anything, this is good news for Kerryon Johnson, who lost five carries to Anderson, five to rookie Ty Johnson and two to J.D. McKissic in the Week 2 win over the Chargers. It doesn't mean that Detroit won't still include Ty Johnson and McKissic moving forward, though, and Kerryon Johnson will be more of a low-end RB2 on Sunday against a tough Eagles defensive front. Ty Johnson's outlook in dynasty and deep leagues just got a lot better as the No. 2.

C.J. Anderson A Low-End Option

Detroit Lions running back C.J. Anderson will likely see around 10 touches in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. From a fantasy perspective, 10 touches is just not enough and he will only be valuable if he scores a touchdown, which is not very likely. Anderson will back up Kerryon Johnson all season as long as Johnson remains healthy; if Johnson does happen to get injured, Anderson will become an interesting option.

C.J. Anderson Productive In Short Outing

Detroit Lions running back C.J. Anderson was able to gather 24 yards on eight rushing attempts and 17 yards on two catches during the Lions third preseason game against the Bills. Anderson has proven that he is solid running back but his touches this season are currently unpredictable. If the Lions decide to let Kerryon Johnson take charge, Anderson could see very little touches but if the Lions are careful with Johnson throughout the season, Anderson could be very valuable to any fantasy team. Following touch counts throughout the first couple of weeks will be essential in predicting fantasy value for the rest of the season for Anderson.
