C.J. Anderson Hanging Up His Cleats

Veteran running back C.J. Anderson announced his retirement from football on Friday at the age of 29. Anderson went to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015 after being an undrafted free agent. He plans to pursue a career in coaching. Anderson managed 10 total touchdowns in 2014, and he also ran for 1,007 yards and three touchdowns in 2017 in his final full season with the Broncos. He'll finish his career with 776 carries for 3,497 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground while catching 108 passes for 900 yards and five additional scores.

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.
