Fantasy football start/sit, Week 11: How to handle Broncos RB C.J. Anderson vs. Bengals

Is this the week C.J. Anderson finally gets back on track?

NFL: Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have been a disaster over the last month, losing five straight to go from being a playoff contender to bottom-feeder status.

The biggest culprit has been the offense, which has struggled mightily to do anything with Brock Osweiler or Trevor Siemian at quarterback, and C.J. Anderson has paid dearly for it.

Anderson has largely been the victim of Denver quickly falling behind in games and abandoning the run, leading to more Devontae Booker and Jamaal Charles at running back. That won’t happen against the 3-6 Bengals this week, so Anderson should see a good workload for four quarters against a struggling defense, which looks like it’s ready to give up on a weekly basis now.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson will face Cincinnati team allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs over the last three weeks. Find a way to get Anderson into your starting lineup for Week 11.
