Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner could challenge veteran RB C.J. Anderson for the No. 2 spot behind RB Kerryon Johnson, in the opinion of The Detroit News' Justin Rogers, who notes that Zenner's north-south running style is a good fit for the team's blocking scheme.
Huddle Up: At this point, Johnson is the only sure thing in the Lions backfield, so you'll need to keep an eye on the preseason to see how Anderson, Zenner and Theo Riddick slot in behind him to see if anyone other than Johnson warrants a selection in fantasy drafts.

Detroit Lions RB C.J. Anderson said he believes Detroit is a perfect fit for him because of the success offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has had with running backs in the past.
Huddle Up: Anderson likely will not start for the Lions but could receive a handful of touches each game. He may be a late-round pick in some leagues or a handcuff to Kerryon Johnson but will be on the bench most weeks.

Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Rams) signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Monday, April 1, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Anderson is a good fit in the Detroit backfield as he will assume the role vacated by LeGarrette Blount. Kerryon Johnson is the main man for the Lions, but Anderson will see some short-yardage and goal-line work. Take a chance on him in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Rams) said on his Twitter feed that his time with the Los Angeles Rams 'was fun' and that he enjoyed the opportunity.
Huddle Up: Anderson was speaking like a player who doesn't expect to be back with the Rams in 2019. However, he did show that he has a little gas left in the tank in the right offense, and depending on where he signs, he could have some appeal as a depth option for fantasy owners.

Los Angeles Rams RB C.J. Anderson rushed seven times for 22 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards in a 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
Huddle Up: Anderson once again split time with Todd Gurley, but neither back was effective. If the Rams end up bringing Anderson back next year, it could thrust Gurley's role as a top-three pick into doubt. It is one of the bigger fantasy stories to watch heading into 2019.
