Royce Freeman Will Spell Melvin Gordon In Week 2

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman will be the primary backup to Melvin Gordon in the team's Week 2 matchup against the Steelers after Denver ruled Phillip Lindsay (toe) out for the week. Freeman won't have any standalone fantasy value, though, after he saw just two touches -- a carry for no gain and a 12-yard reception -- in the second half of the Week 1 loss to the Titans when Lindsay didn't return after the first half. On top of it, Pittsburgh's rush defense was one of the best in the league last year and held Saquon Barkley down in their season opener. The 24-year-old will see more than two touches over the full game, but he should be ignored in pretty much any fantasy format.

Melvin Gordon III Should See Bigger Workload In Week 2

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III has more upside as an RB2 this weekend against the Steelers with teammate Phillip Lindsay (toe) week-to-week with turf toe. The matchup is a daunting one, though, as the Steelers Defense held Saquon Barkley in check (15 carries for six yards) in Week 1. But the extra touches that Gordon should receive on Sunday push him from a flex play to more of a low-end RB2. Royce Freeman should help spell Gordon when he needs a breather. In his first game with Denver, the 27-year-old had 86 total yards and a touchdown on 18 touches, but he also had a costly lost fumble in the first half. Gordon had 18 yards in eight carries against Pittsburgh last year while with the Chargers.

Melvin Gordon III Scores Touchdown In Broncos Debut

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III had 15 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 16-14 loss to the Titans, including a costly lost fumble early in the first half. He also added three catches on three targets for eight yards in the passing game. Gordon looked refreshed and had some burst in his debut with the Broncos, but he was sharing touches pretty evenly in the first half until Phillip Lindsay went down with a foot injury. Gordon dominated touches in the second half, but as long as Lindsay remains in the picture, Gordon will be more of a low-end RB2 that's touchdown-dependent. Gordon's upside will be higher if Lindsay misses any time, so keep an eye on his status heading into Week 2 against Pittsburgh.
