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.

Melvin Gordon III Listed As Co-Starter

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III was listed as a co-starter with Phillip Lindsay when the team released their depth chart earlier this week. Gordon has also been bothered by a rib injury in the last week, but he returned to practice last Friday. The Broncos brought in the 27-year-old in free agency to be the lead back, but it sounds as though the team wants to go with more of a 50/50 split to start the season. There's bust potential with Gordon in his debut with Denver on Monday night against a sturdy Titans Defense that recently added Jadeveon Clowney, especially if Lindsay gets hot early and takes over with the hot hand. Monday night should give fantasy owners a better idea of how the Broncos plan to utilize both Gordon and Lindsay in their backfield.

Denver’s Crowded Backfield Complicates Melvin Gordon In 2020

When healthy, running backMelvin Gordon should be the Denver Broncos lead back in 2020. But unfortunately for Gordon, with a rib injury lingering ahead of Week 1, Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman have been able to split first-team repetitions. A timeshare severely cut into Gordons production load last year when he compiled 612 yards on the ground for eight touchdowns alongside Austin Ekeler. Still projected as a top-20 running back entering the year, Gordon has the track record to back up his ADP, but he may not have the path to carries. With so many carries to be spread around in Denver, Gordon presents a risky top-50 selection, albeit one that has the potential to pay off should he remain healthy and completely usurp the duo of Lindsay and Freeman.
