C.J Anderson missed most of the 2016 season after undergoing surgery on a torn meniscus but it looks like the Broncos running back has his groove back. Anderson has been a big reason why the Denver Broncos have started 3-1 this year and it’s because the 5th year player is a workhorse for this offense. With Trevor Siemian still progressing in his second year at the helm as the team’s starting quarterback, Anderson is doing his part in taking stress of Siemian. We know new Head Coach Vance Joseph is a defensive mastermind and a great running game is the perfect balance for Denver’s winning formula. Anderson has provided an ideal rushing attack for the Broncos and he is definitely the x-factor on the offensive side of the ball. If C.J Anderson didn’t get hurt last season there’s a great chance Denver would have been a playoff team. Now that Anderson’s knee is healthy expect this guy to be around the 1,000 yards rushing mark at the end of the year. C.J Anderson could come up shy of 1,000 yards because Jamaal Charles seems to be reinvigorated. These two guys together are a very dynamic tandem and they set the tone for the Broncos ground and pound philosophy. Believe it or not Anderson was undrafted back in 2013, so he has been the perfect example of how far someone can come with hard work and perseverance. At only 26 years old Anderson has plenty of good years left in front of him. So expect to see this guy in a Broncos uniform for the foreseeable future and John Elway will likely re-sign Anderson when his contract runs out in 2020. The California native has been that good during his time as a professional football player.
