Melvin Gordon III's Ceiling Lowered In Week 12

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III got back into the good graces of his fantasy managers in Week 11 by rushing 15 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Dolphins. But those expecting back-to-back solid performances in fantasy might be disappointed. He'll be facing a Saints Defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in 2020. On top of that, Gordon saw just 50 percent of the offensive snaps last week, meaning that he'll have to continue to capitalize on his opportunities against a much stouter run defense in New Orleans. Gordon does contribute more through the air, but the Saints have allowed a league-low five total TDs to RBs this year. Gordon's ceiling should be lowered this week as more of an RB3/flex.

Melvin Gordon III Scores Two Touchdowns In Week 11

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III was the offensive star of the game for Denver in the 20-13 Week 11 upset win over the Dolphins. The Broncos won with their rushing attack and their defense, and Gordon was a big part of that, rushing 15 times for 84 yards (5.6 yards per carry) and both of the team's touchdowns. On the negative side, Gordon did lose another fumble. The 27-year-old saw just 50 percent of the offensive snaps, but he made the most of his chances while still splitting time pretty evenly with teammate Phillip Lindsay. It was a great showing for Gordon, especially since he hadn't given his fantasy managers a touchdown since Week 7 against the Chiefs. But he'll go back to being a low-end RB2/high-end RB3/flex in Week 12 against a Saints Defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in 2020.

Melvin Gordon III Could Be Leaned On More

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III hasn't found the end zone since Week 7 and has seen single-digit carries in two of the last three games. The team's backfield has been a mess since both Gordon and Phillip Lindsay have been in the fold, although Gordon continues to be the 1A to Lindsay's 1B. Gordon has also been the favorite in the passing game, although he's seen only three targets the last two weeks. The Broncos offense has been extremely inconsistent under quarterback Drew Lock (ribs), who is now questionable to play against Miami in Week 11. Even if Lock plays through his injury, Gordon could see a heavier workload as Denver looks to avoid making Lock throw the ball 40-plus times. Miami has been a middle-of-the-pack defense, making Gordon a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 flex.
