C.J. Anderson admits frustration is affecting his 2015 Broncos form

Published Add your comment

Heading into the 2015 season, big things were expected of Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson.

Unfortunately, the third-year back has failed to live up to the hype - looking a shadow of his 2014 self so far this campaign on route to a brutal 2.7 yards-per-carry average. 


Anderson's struggles have earned him the wrath of the fantasy football community and they've also seen him move to a time share with former backup Ronnie Hillman. Addressing his struggles today, the RB feels his issues can be put down to the frustration he is feeling with the situation.

"I can see [the frustration] on film, I can see it, I can feel it when it happens."

"Certain things you go 'Man, here we go again,' just got to stay positive the whole time, just keep that positive mindset."

Stop the rot

After Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak confirmed Anderson and Hillman will be on a 50/50 split for this weekend's game against the Oakland Raiders, the former is only likely to see his frustration increase if his performances don't improve soon.

Whilst the Broncos offensive line hasn't opened up many gaps for either of the running backs, Hillman is certainly the player trending upwards at this stage.

Anderson, meanwhile, is facing a mental and physical battle to regain the form that took him to the 2014 Pro Bowl.
