So is your stance that he should not be on a roster?  

At this point he could be dropped unless you want to carry a handcuff. Gurley will be back and CJ's usage will drop off a cliff, if you want to carry a handcuff he is fine but as a contributing player going forward he will be worthless.

Yes, he would have very limited value behind Gurley. But he's an unrestricted free agent and has a number of potential landing spots where he would have value either as a lead back or a #2 option in an RBBC.

He just had two games in a row which were better than any game Fournette or Howard had this year, and his career YPC is almost a yard better than Fournette's (4.5 YPC to 3.7). I don't think Jacksonville is going to bring in CJA but all of the evidence is that CJA is a solid power back, and someone will want him.

He had two games in a row in one of the best RB systems and OLs in football.  

I can't believe people are still comparing a RB on Team A to another RB on a completely different team B.

The point is he has value and likely will be on a roster next year and in the right system he can be successful as he has shown.

Yeah, that's basically 99% of reasonably aged RBs

Eh, kind of. Except he is a former 1,000 yd rusher. He’s a little more proven than the average RB. 

Hes an intriguing dynasty player to hold right now IMO. Easy to cut if he doesn’t land in a decent situation.

Well in 2014 in Denver he also had two games better than anything they did this year. 

Then he got hurt in 2015, came back, and in two straight years put up two games better than Howard or Fournette has put up in 2018. And now it's three in a row despite sitting out most of the season.

What evidence is there that he's something other than an above-average power back?

Plus look who he was up against....two of the worst defenses in the league playing for nothing.

San Fran's D is #13 in the league, #14 against the run. And when Howard played them just last week he put up 13/53/1. He also played Arizona earlier in the year and managed 24/61/1 (2.54 YPC).

C.J. Anderson rushed 23 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Stunningly, Anderson out-carried Todd Gurley 23-16, though Gurley did play more snaps. Gurley also got more involved as the game wore on. Big and bulky, Anderson was simply punishing a Cowboys defense that was excellent against the run this season. It helped that his offensive line was paving massive lanes. Although coach Sean McVay told the FOX booth that Gurley's limited usage was more of a "cardio" issue than anything else, it is safe to say that CJA is officially a part of the offense. He will be a DFS dark horse for the NFC Championship Game.

Runs much harder at 265 than he did at 220

If this guy signs with the Rams moving forward, he’s going to really diminish Gurley, but the Rams are going to be damned close to unbeatable.  They’ll be able to hand the ball off 35 times a game and gash Ds with the high ypc, but Goff may not suffer too much with the improved opportunities when Ds are forced to load the box.  Fewer attempts but his ypa could be outrageous.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Rams "absolutely" want C.J. Anderson to return in 2019.

Anderson spent much of the year bouncing around the league, enduring forgettable stints in Carolina and Oakland before finding a home in Los Angeles. Despite looking much heavier than his listed weight of 225 pounds, the 27-year-old has been highly productive since joining the Rams in Week 16, topping 100 yards rushing in three of his four appearances while supplying four touchdowns during that span. Keeping Anderson wouldn't be a bad idea for the Rams, especially considering Todd Gurley's history of knee issues, though the former Bronco will likely draw interest from several teams when he hits the free agent market this offseason.

Any news on Anderson?  Are the Rams trying to re-sign him?  I haven’t seen him taking any visits anywhere...

He tweeted yesterday in response to someone saying the Rams needed to sign him:

It seems like they wanted to see what would happen with Malcolm Brown first, which makes sense. I know they have cap issues so I don’t know what they want to spend on a backup RB.

Looks like the Rams are keeping Brown, so a CJ return doesn't seem likely. Maybe the Lions should look at him.

"Source: The #Rams are matching the two-year, $3.25M offer sheet for RFA RB Malcolm Brown, source said. They keep him, the #Lions will keep searching. He gets a $100K signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed."

Brown is an interesting FF asset with the Rams.

Nice stash with Gurley’s knee an unknown.

Not sure he has much value in Detroit 

Are you kidding? There are probably several all-night diners that will be gold mines for the first few weeks of the season. Is there a single Krispy Kreme franchise in Detroit?

While he doesn't have *much* value, he does have some value. He's going to get touches and maybe at the goal line work. Maybe similar to how Blount was? We know that they're going to limit Kerryon's load because they said as much about a week ago. Patricia seems to have those BB ideas about RBBC roles being clear.

He ran well enough in LA but it's a different, less accomplished line in DET. He's only 28 and  seems like a team player.
