C.J. Anderson could have a career year in 2018

C.J. Anderson could have a career year in 2018

Don’t sleep on this key offseason acquisition. C.J. Anderson could have a career year in a Panthers uniform in 2018. For those who think running back Christian McCaffrey will dominate the touches in Carolina, I say hold on just a minute. The platoon is no new concept in the NFL and Norv Turner likes to control the ball. Turner’s preferred offense fits Anderson’s game. Check out this highlight video.

Ron Rivera thinks Christian McCaffrey can handle a bigger workload next season

After carrying the ball just 117 times as a rookie, McCaffrey is expected to take on a bigger role in year two.
