Film breakdown: Can C.J. Anderson reproduce last season’s magic in Detroit?

Anderson played a key role in the Los Angeles Rams’ Super Bowl run, can he find success in the Motor City? The Detroit Lions strengthened their offense earlier this month when they inked running back C.J. Anderson to a one-year deal worth around $1.5 million. The running back was most recently on the NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams and played a surprisingly large role in their run to Super Bowl LIII. While his 2018 campaign did get an eventual story-book ending, it was not all smooth sailing for the six-year veteran. The running back started the season as a member of the Carolina Panthers,...

Maybe C.J. Anderson will not be the Detroit Lions’ No. 2 RB

When the Detroit Lions signed former Los Angeles Rams running back C.J. Anderson, pretty much everybody automatically penciled him in as the No. 2 RB behind starter Kerryon Johnson, and rightfully so. Embed from After all, Anderson played extremely well in the Rams final two games of the season (43 carries for 299 […]

Malcolm Brown headed for a big 2019?

Malcolm Brown headed for a big 2019?

Todd Gurley’s knee injury late in the season opened the door for an RB2, but Brown’s previous injury meant it was CJ Anderson’s chance to shine. Now that Brown is healthy again, are big things on the cards for the fifth-year vet? The Los Angeles Rams’ treatment of RB Todd Gurley and reliance on RB C.J. Anderson throughout the playoffs was one of the strangest sagas in team history. Perhaps stranger is that it seemingly was aided by the absence of RB Malcolm Brown. Brown, an undrafted free agent who joined the team in the 2015 season along with Gurley, has long operated outside the...

Anderson signing reignites the Gurley knee saga

Anderson signing reignites the Gurley knee saga

It just doesn’t make any sense. The Detroit Lions signed RB C.J. Anderson yesterday just three and a half months after he joined the Los Angeles Rams en route to one of the weirdest sagas Rams fans have ever seen with the handling of RB Todd Gurley and his knee. A reminder of the timeline that played out over the final weeks of the 2018 regular season into the playoffs. The first domino to fall came in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions when RB Malcolm Brown injured his clavicle forcing him to miss the rest of the season (although some might argue the real first domino was Gurley...

Open thread: Should the Lions draft a RB after signing C.J. Anderson?

Open thread: Should the Lions draft a RB after signing C.J. Anderson?

Should the addition of C.J. Anderson change Detroit’s draft strategy? The Detroit Lions filled one of their bigger roster holes this week, reportedly agreeing to terms with former Rams and Broncos running back C.J. Anderson. The veteran rusher should come in and immediately compete for the backup job behind Kerryon Johnson. But Anderson signed to just a one-year deal, and there is no guarantee, at 28 years old, that Anderson will impress enough to earn a second contract in Detroit. The Lions tried a similar free agency with LeGarrette Blount last offseason, and we all know how that worked...
