C.J. Anderson doesn't care about your fantasy team

Week three of the NFL season got under way tonight with the NFC East match-up between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.

Fantasy football coaches are hard at work picking their line ups and guessing what they will see on Sunday.

Not off to a good start

Several high draft picks are still yet to reward the coaches who picked them including Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and Seattle Seahawks runningback Marshawn Lynch.


Will C.J. Anderson find his form from last year? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

While some players have come from nowhere to lead the fantasy leagues, some have really struggled to live up to the expectations placed on them.

One such player is the Denver Broncos runningback C.J. Anderson who was largely expected to have a big season.

So far Anderson has rushed for just 56 yards in two games and has still find the end-zone at all this season.

This has led to some fantasy owners taking some shots at the third year runningback who has decided to respond.

"I don't go to other people's jobs and tell them: 'Hey, you (stink). You're trash,'" - Anderson's response to Fantasy criticism

A fair point from Anderson who would go on to explain that he tries to black out the criticism and get on with his work.

Despite the high level of criticism he must surely be receiving so far this season, Anderson at least understands what people want of him.

"I guess that's kind of the ups and downs of being a top-10 pick and who they expect you to be."

Time to step up

Anderson really became the focal point of the Broncos offense towards the end of last season when quarterback Peyton Manning was struggling with injury.

So far this season though, the Broncos haven't been high scoring and it goes without saying that Anderson hasn't been successful in the first two games.

Only time will tell if he can re-establish the same form he had last year but the Broncos and fantasy owners may need him to find it sooner rather than later.
