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

Hopes to be ready for camp

Knee - ACL
May 20, 2019
Anderson (knee) expects to be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Coach Zac Taylor didn't sound quite as confident, simply noting that the Bengals will see where Anderson is at when training camp rolls around. The rookie sixth-round pick will be held out of spring practices while he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered in early September. The typical timeline from an ACL rehab would seem to put him on track for Week 1, but it's worth noting that Anderson suffered two other season-ending injuries during his time at Oklahoma. It also isn't clear if there's any backfield role available in the Cincinnati offense, as Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard are locked in atop the depth chart. The Bengals might consider stashing Anderson on the PUP list or injured reserve even if his recovery moves along on schedule.
