Anderson should be first in line behindRB Kerryon Johnson for carries- especially if he finds his late 2018 season form. He played in Denver from 2013 to 2017 after going undrafted out of Cal, where he was teammates with current Lions receiver Marvin Jones.

After he was released in the middle of the season, Anderson spent a few minutes with the Raiders before moving on to the Rams. In two regular season games, Anderson rushed for 299 yards and two touchdowns. His performance earned him shared time with Gurley in the playoffs. He continued his success in the postseason, gaining 123 yards against the Cowboys in the divisional round.

In his career, he has started 39 games, accumulated 3,454-yards rushing (4.5 ypc), 22 touchdowns on the ground, 108 catches for 900-yards with five touchdown receptions.
