C.J. Anderson A Low-End Depth Option

Detroit Lions running back C.J. Anderson finds himself backing-up one of the highest upside young running backs, Kerryon Johnson, this year after signing a one year deal with the Lions. Anderson should see around 10 touches per game and has the chance of seeing some goal line touches but has little upside as long as Johnson isn't injured. For that reason, Anderson doesn't offer all that much fantasy value other than in deep leagues (12+ teams). If Johnson is to get injured, Anderson's fantasy value goes up significantly; he may become a middle of the road RB2 option.

C.J. Anderson Reaches Agreement With Lions

The Detroit Lions reached an agreement on an undisclosed one-year deal with free-agent running back C.J. Anderson on Monday, according to a source. Anderson only had 24 carries in nine games with the Panthers in 2018 before being released. He was picked up late in the year by the Rams to help fill in for the injured Todd Gurley down the stretch and had 43 attempts for 299 yards (7.0 yards per carry) and two touchdowns in two regular season games for LA. In Detroit, he'll help spell Kerryon Johnson heading into his second year, but Theo Riddick will continue to have a role in the passing game as well. Don't let Anderson's strong finish to last year fool you, as he should be more of an RB3/flex with his new squad.

Rams Want C.J. Anderson Back In 2019

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.
