Now that Todd Gurley is ruled out, you can confidently start Anderson again this week. He might not go for 160 yards again, but he will be a workhorse which should be plenty.McCaffrey is expected to be inactive in Week 17 since this game doesn't matter for Carolina and they don't want him hurt going into next year. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Signed earlier in the week, Anderson annihilated Arizona's NFL-worst rushing defense for 167 yards and a touchdown. (Isn't it funny how running backs are the most important position in fantasy, but actual teams can readily replace even the top guys?) The Rams, who will clinch a first-round bye with a victory, are 10-point favorites over the 49ers. That makes Anderson a must-start with Todd Gurley (knee) sitting again.Confused as to why Carolina would keep working McCaffrey into the ground with no playoff stakes? The Panthers may have come around to that thinking, as Ron Rivera suggested he may rest the 22-year-old. He has already collected 1,925 total yards and 13 touchdowns while becoming just the third back to produce 1,000 rushing yards and 100 catches in a season. Even without any Week 17 reps, that's more than even optimistic investors could have hoped for. If he plays, the Saints' top-ranked defense could be more vulnerable while resting starters of their own.

Anderson had a monster game last week and he should keep up his strong play with the Rams needing to have Gurley become healthy for the playoffs.
