After watching C.J. Anderson carry the Rams offense at the end of last season, he settled for a one-year deal with the Lions to play alongside the up-and-coming Kerryon Johnson. The Lions do want to use a timeshare, so it's likely Anderson inherits the LeGarrette Blount role in the offense, which netted 164 touches last year, though it helped that Johnson missed time at the end of the year. If you combined Blount and Zach Zenner's roles from last year, they netted 209 carries, 683 yards, and eight touchdowns on the ground. Anderson is going to clog upside on your bench as long as Johnson is in the lineup. If Johnson were to miss time, Anderson would likely be considered a low-end RB2.Some seem to believe Ballage has a shot at the starting job, but you shouldn't bank on that. Kenyan Drake is the superior running back of the two and has already shown what he's capable of on the NFL level. Even if Ballage gets into a timeshare, it's not going to be a high-scoring offense in year one under Brian Flores, so you wouldn't be getting much. He should be treated as a low-level handcuff to Drake.
