Former OC says RB C.J. Anderson was 'a little worn down quick'

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Former OC Adam Gase said that Broncos RB C.J. Anderson wasn't in great shape last season:

“In Denver — Anderson would hate me for saying this — but he got tired and was a little chubby sometimes,” Gase said. “I mean, he got worn down quick and then we had to rotate backs in last year.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Anderson's fatigue might have something to do with the 24.0 touches he averaged over the final eight games. Over that span, he averaged 132 total yards and 1.3 TD, and was the #1 fantasy running back. If the Broncos commit to Anderson, he should thrive under new HC Gary Kubiak, who just coaxed a career year out of journeyman Justin Forsett.
