Week 2 Running Back Rankings

CJ-Anderson-1024x606 Week 2 Running Back Rankings

QB | WR | TE | DST | K

DraftKings Start of the Week:

C.J. Anderson – DEN vs. IND ($6,800)

Typically, I don’t like spending big money on any position outside of QB/WR, but Anderson (and the Broncos offensive line) was pretty damn impressive last week vs. Carolina. Anderson turned 20 carries into 92 yards and a TD, and added 4 receptions for 47 yards and another TD, against arguably the best front 7 in the NFL. Who does he face this week? A Colts defense that gave up 39 points, 116 rushing yards (Abdullah/Riddick combined for 120 yds rec and 2 TDs as well), 4.8 yards per carry, and 2 rushing touchdowns to Detroit… at home. There’s no reason to believe Anderson will not be this week’s top RB performer, yet he has the 7th highest salary. I’ll take that value.
