Broncos Beat: C.J. Anderson has 'seized' starting job

ESPN - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Jeff Legwold on C.J. Anderson and the team's running back situation: Anderson is the guy right now as neither Montee Ball nor Ronnie Hillman will play against the Chiefs because of injuries. And Anderson has done well enough in pass protection -- Job 1 for Broncos running backs -- to go with what he’s done on the ground, to have earned top billing when the other guys come back. The Broncos will use a rotation when everybody’s healthy. They believe Hillman’s speed is an enormous threat in the passing game -- but Anderson has seized the opportunity, and unless his play drops off, they’ll keep handing him the ball.

Fantasy Impact: 

Anderson is averaging 5.6 YPC, so it will be tough to unseat him as the RB1. Barring an injury or a severe drop in his play, he should be a strong start the rest of the way.
