Melvin Gordon To Be Denver's Bell-Cow Back?

The belief is that Denver Broncos recently signed running back Melvin Gordon III will be the team's bell-cow back in 2020. We have a long way to go before the start of the regular season and Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman will still get their touches in this crowded backfield, but Gordon could be the lead man in this backfield after coming over from the Chargers in free agency. On the surface, Denver's backfield looks like one to avoid in fantasy because of all the bodies in play, and Gordon's signing surely destroys Lindsay's fantasy upside as an RB2. The question now is how much upside will Gordon have and how large of a share will he command in his first season in Denver? He had a weak 3.8 yards per carry alongside Austin Ekeler in LA in 2019, and the Broncos could change up their plans if Gordon struggles out of the gates as the bell-cow.

Broncos, Melvin Gordon Agree To Deal

The Denver Broncos and running back Melvin Gordon III agreed to a two-year deal worth $16 million on Friday, according to a source. The deal includes $13.5 million in guarantees. Gordon will stay within the division and will form a strong one-two punch with Phillip Lindsay. The 26-year-old (27 next month) held out for a new deal with the Chargers last year and missed four games. He returned and was the second-best back in LA's backfield behind Austin Ekeler, rushing 162 times for 612 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns. He's had at least eight rushing scores in the last four seasons and can also catch the ball out of the backfield. His signing is mostly bad news for Royce Freeman, but it will also put a dent in Lindsay's fantasy ceiling. This three-headed monster will now be a fantasy headache, and we'll have to see how Denver plans to split up the workload in this crowded backfield picture.

Bills Have Interest In Melvin Gordon

The Buffalo Bills are interested in free-agent running back Melvin Gordon III, according to a source. However, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported on Thursday that Gordon won't get anything close to what the Chargers offered him before the 2019 season. He was receiving offers in the $10 million range last August. It's unclear how Gordon would be used alongside Devin Singletary, who rushed for 775 yards and 5.1 yards per carry as a rookie last year. Gordon played in just 12 games for the Bolts in 2019 after holding out, and he averaged just 3.8 yards per rush while finishing with 612 yards rushing on 162 carries with eight touchdowns. He'd likely be a change-of-pace option alongside Singletary, limiting both of their fantasy ceilings.
