C.J. Anderson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Prior to his release on 9/17 CJ Anderson was projected to be a decent fantasy backup.  And he may end up being one if he can have a repeat of last season when he was released by Carolina only to resurface with great success on the Rams.  

OUTDATED PROJECTION BELOW

According to our projection, you can expect C.J. Anderson to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 75 projected fantasy points puts him at #54 behind Justin Jackson and ahead of Jordan Howard. He has averaged 6.06 fantasy points in his past 11 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 5.3 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#55) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #56 ranked running back. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 31%, he is the #60 most highly owned running back. C.J. Anderson is expected to come up short of last season's #50 fantasy position rank.
