Draft note
by John Paulsen
When the offseason started, Gordon was looking like a screaming value in the fifth round. Phillip Lindsay had moved on and it appeared that Gordon would see bellcow touches as the lead back in Denver. But then the Broncos traded up for Javonte Williams, and now Gordon is going in the 10th/11th round as the fantasy community has concluded that he’ll serve as Williams’ caddy. This assumption has been fueled by Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post, who has predicted that Williams will not only lead the team in carries, but that he would start Week 1 as well. Gordon played pretty well for the Broncos last season–1,144 total yards and 4.7 yards per carry–and can catch the ball, so he may be tougher to usurp than people think.

DEN RB Melvin Gordon - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs Raiders

Melvin Gordon has a tasty matchup this week going up against the Las Vegas Raiders. According to our very own adjusted fantasy points allowed tool, the Raiders come in as a bottom-5 run defense in points allowed (28.5) to the opposing RB. After a week where he lost the snap share battle to Javonte Williams, Melvin Gordon was again at 60%/40% share with the rookie RB. This week both should be RB2/ Flex options.
