Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson had a frustrating, injury-riddled 2016 season. He rushed for just 437 yards and four touchdowns before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Not only is his goal to improve, but he is determined to beat “brotha” Marshawn Lynch in yards gained.

Apparently, Anderson considers Beastmode a brother from another mother. Kidding aside, the battle to be the best running back in the AFC West is sure to be a great one to watch this season.

For the Broncos sake, Anderson needs to get his legs back and return to the dominate form he demonstrated in back in 2014-15. Though, he has stiff competition in his own camp in the form of Jamaal Charles.

Lynch is returning to the game after spending the entire 2016 in retirement. The Raiders can only hope he picks up where he left off in Seattle which way back in 2014.

His final season with the Seahawks was injury-plagued and he managed a mere 3.8 yards per carry, scoring only three times in seven games. We can’t wait to see who the superior back is once the season gets underway in just a few short months.
