Bold Predictions: Denver Broncos v. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
CJ Anderson: 100 Yards Rushing & 75 Yards Receiving
CJ Anderson is the perfect running back for the Gary Kubiak system, but saw his struggles against the Bengals front seven last Sunday. Anderson played with intent in the home opener and there seems to be a new level of confidence in the runner this year. In my opinion, Anderson will bounce back in monster performance in the hot Tampa Bay sun.
The best way to neutralize speed of the linebackers is hit them with power. Our offensive line has improved from last season; however, there is still room for growth, but plenty to be excited about. Anderson does not need a big hole to run through because he is more than capable of creating a gap of his own. He has shown the talent to expand his running style to the receiving end will have close to 75 yards as that duel-threat back.
LaVonte David and Kwon Alexander, but particularly David will have the task of stopping Anderson in the pass game. David is capable of stopping Anderson in coverage, but the hunch I have says Anderson will see plenty of green grass in the passing game. This will allow for more of a dynamic running between the tackles for Anderson giving him 100 yards on the ground.
