Injury Knee - ACL
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson once was thought to have the talent to be an early-round pick, but suffered three major injuries while at Oklahoma, including a torn ACL in September that forced him to miss all but two games in 2018. He demonstrated his considerable talent in 2017, rushing for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns on 188 carries, while scoring five more touchdowns through the air. Because of his injuries, Anderson fell to the supplemental round of the sixth round. It's not certain that he'll be ready for Week 1, and even if he is ready he'll be behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, and maybe even Trayveon Williams. He's a big wildcard for the Bengals that could pay off with a full recovery, but that payoff probably won't occur in 2019. Read Past Outlooks

Approaching rehab with caution

Knee - ACL
March 6, 2020
Anderson (knee) is taking a slower approach to his current ACL rehab, perhaps hoping for a mid-August debut, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports. "I'm taking everything slow," Anderson said. "Doing it the right way, taking as much time as I need no matter what."
Once viewed as a potential first-round pick, Anderson fell to the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft after suffering a torn ACL in September 2018, his third season-ending injury in a span of four years at Oklahoma. He then re-tore the same ligament in the final week of the 2019 preseason, landing on injured reserve for his rookie campaign. Anderson has since resumed running and cutting, but he's in no rush to get back on the practice field. He and fellow 2019 draft pick Trayveon Williams could end up battling for the No. 3 running back job behind veterans Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, assuming the latter isn't an offseason cap casualty.
