Gordon had a 9-29-1 line and added three catches for 23 yards last week, but Murray had a 14-46-1 line. It would at least make sense Edmonds becomes the team's third down and pass catching back once he's up to speed. Gordon may be the starter but the two have pretty much split the work over the last two weeks: in Week 7, Gordon out-touched Murray 13-10 and last week it was Murray out-touching Gordon 15-12.
Edmonds joins a crowded backfield in Denver where there is already a lot of fantasy confusion. Edmonds could at least claim a pass catching role ahead of Boone, but it remains to be seen if he eats into the workload of Murray and Gordon.
Michel was given nine rush attempts through three preseason games and managed 13 yards combined. All signs point toward this being a split backfield with Raheem Mostert being utilized as a change-of-pace back behind Chase Edmonds, who could end up as the fantasy steal of the summer, particularly for those of whom were drafting him when his ADP was at the end of the 9th Round.
Mostert is an explosive threat with the ball in his hands but has a long, checkered history with injuries and is heading into his year-30 season. The Chase Edmonds lead-back role is not threatened by the news of Mostert's healthy diagnosis, though this does open the door for late-round consideration if the former 49er is truly ready to go. He has familiarity with new head coach Mike McDaniel and could be in store for some spike weeks, even if he is relegated to a lesser role with Edmonds in town.
