Player Outlook
Gordon is a free agent at the time of publication, and we'll see if a team will give the 31-year-old running back a chance to add depth to their backfield. He finished the 2023 season with Baltimore, but he only had 26 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown for the year and three catches for 46 yards. Gordon is no longer a good Fantasy option, and he's not worth drafting in any leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon: Back with Baltimore

    The Ravens signed Gordon to their practice squad Friday. Gordon was cut by Baltimore earlier this week in order to make room for Dalvin Cook, who is expected to be active behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill against the Texans. Gordon can't be elevated for Saturday's game.

  • Melvin Gordon: Could rejoin practice squad

    Gordon, whom the Ravens waived Wednesday, is a candidate to re-sign to the team's practice squad, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports. Gordon lost his spot on Baltimore's practice squad to fellow veteran running back Dalvin Cook. Still, Gordon is reportedly considered a likely candidate to return to the Ravens' practice squad, giving the team a bit more veteran depth in the backfield for the playoffs. He suited up in a reserve role for four regular-season games with the team, compiling 81 rushing yards and one touchdown on 26 carries, plus one fumble.

  • Melvin Gordon: Waived by Baltimore

    The Ravens waived Gordon on Wednesday. The move frees up a roster spot for Dalvin Cook, who is likely to be signed off the practice squad ahead of the Ravens' divisional-round playoff game against the Texans on Saturday. In four regular-season games with the Ravens, Gordon logged 26 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown and added three catches for 46 yards.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    The Ravens are likely going to rest Gus Edwards and Justice Hill for the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the AFC. That should allow Gordon to be the lead running back against the Steelers. He'll be playing with backups, so keep that in mind, but Pittsburgh has allowed four running backs in the past five games to score at least 12.3 PPR points. And Gordon just scored a touchdown for Baltimore against Miami in Week 17.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Week 18 Adds (RB Preview)

    Gordon is another third-string running back who should be thrust into action with the Ravens expected to rest Gus Edwards. This week a big projected workload is about all it takes to be a starting Fantasy running back, but the Steelers have given up some big games to backs this season as well.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Scores late touchdown in romp

    Gordon had six carries for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The veteran was elevated from the practice squad in Week 16 following Keaton Mitchell's season-ending injury. Gordon did not get in on the action against the 49ers but did factor into the box score in the blowout win over the Dolphins. He ended up seeing twice as many carries as Justice Hill, though it's worth noting that Gordon did not get into the game until garbage time. With Baltimore having the No.1 seed sewn up, it's possible that Gordon will have his largest role of the season in Saturday's season finale against the Steelers.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Joins Ravens' active roster

    The Ravens signed Gordon from their practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports. Rookie halfback Keaton Mitchell went down with a torn ACL on Sunday, and Baltimore promptly promoted Gordon to reinforce the position. In two games with the Ravens earlier this season, Gordon took 13 carries for 53 yards, adding three catches for 46 yards on three targets.

  • Melvin Gordon: Set to join Baltimore roster

    Head coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win over the Jaguars that Gordon will be added to the Ravens' 53-man roster this week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. After Keaton Mitchell was believed to have sustained a season-ending knee injury during Sunday's win, the Ravens need additional backfield depth. Gordon appeared in two games for the Ravens earlier this season and rushed 13 times for 53 yards while securing all three of his targets for 46 yards. While Baltimore still has Gus Edwards and Justice Hill available out of the backfield, Gordon could have a chance to carve out a role down the stretch.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Four touches as Edwards, Hill play

    Gordon rushed three times for 21 yards and caught his only target for 23 yards in Sunday's 28-3 win over the Browns. Gus Edwards avoided entering the league's concussion protocol after exiting in Week 3 while Justice Hill (foot) suited up after sitting out that contest, so Gordon was part of a three-man running back rotation. Edwards led the way with 49 scrimmage yards on 15 carries and three targets, while Hill (three carries for 33 yards) split change-of-pace duties with Gordon. Perhaps Gordon's efficiency in this one will earn him more touches in Week 5 against the Steelers, but the veteran running back's ceiling remains capped as long as he's limited to a rotational role in Baltimore's crowded backfield.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Promoted to active roster

    Gordon was elevated to the Ravens' active roster Saturday. Gordon saw his first action of the season in Week 3 against the Colts, and he rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries while adding two catches for 23 yards. This is the third time he has been elevated from the practice squad, which means that the Ravens would have to sign Gordon to their active roster if they wish to play him for the rest of the season. He's set to take on the RB3 role for Sunday's contest against the Browns, with Gus Edwards out of the NFL's concussion protocols and Justice Hill (foot) trending toward playing in a crucial divisional matchup.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Week 4 Adds (RB Preview)

    It's quite possible that Gordon sees 15-plus touches if Gus Edwards and Justice Hill are unable to go in Week 4. Last week Gordon produced 55 yards from scrimmage playing 40% of the offensive snaps, and Kenyan Drake lost a key fumble. We've seen this offense turn Drake, Lataviius Murray, and Devonta Freeman into useful flexes the past two years. Gordon likely has at least as much left as those guys.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Justice Hill (toe) missed Week 3 against the Colts, and Gus Edwards (concussion) was injured in that game. If both are out in Week 4 against the Browns then Gordon would start, making him a potential flex option in all leagues. He would share touches with Kenyan Drake (2 percent rostered), and this is a brutal matchup against Cleveland. But Gordon still had 12 total touches in Week 3 (two catches) for 55 yards, and the Ravens aren't going to shy away from running the ball, even against the Browns. In deeper leagues, you might need Gordon, who is worth adding for up to 5 percent of your FAB. And, if you have an open roster spot, you can stash Hill (59 percent) with the hope that his toe injury isn't serious moving forward. You can get Hill for less than 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Goes back to practice squad

    Gordon reverted to Baltimore's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Gordon played on a healthy 40 percent of the Ravens' offensive snaps in a Week 3 loss to the Colts, which was second most among running backs on the squad behind Gus Edwards (44 percent). Gordon wasn't very efficient on the ground, gaining just 32 yards on 10 carries, though he added 23 yards on two receptions. Edwards exited early Sunday and currently is in the concussion protocol, and Justice Hill missed the game entirely with a foot injury. With that in mind, Gordon not only could be brought back to the active roster for Week 4 in Cleveland, he could feasibly start if neither Edwards nor Hill are able to play.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: First action of 2023

    Gordon rushed the ball 10 times for 32 yards in Sunday's 22-19 overtime loss to the Colts. He added two receptions for 23 yards. Gordon was elevated from the practice squad for the second consecutive game and saw his first carries of the season. The majority of his work came after Gus Edwards (concussion) was forced from the game, and Gordon wasn't particularly impressive with his opportunity. It's possible that he factors into the backfield mix again in Week 4 against the Browns, but that will likely depend on the health of Edwards as well as Justice Hill (toe).

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Joins active roster

    Gordon was elevated from the Ravens' practice squad Saturday. This comes as no surprise given J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) is done for the season and Justice Hill (toe) has already been ruled out ahead of Sunday's matchup. This marks the second time Gordon has been elevated off the practice squad, but he ultimately didn't see any time in Week 2. That figures to change given the litany of injuries to the Ravens' backfield. It's possible both Gordon and fellow practice-squad callup, Kenyan Drake could spell expected starter Gus Edwards at times.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Bumps up to active roster

    The Ravens elevated Gordon from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports. In the wake of J.K. Dobbins' Week 1 Achilles tear, Gordon was the most logical immediate option to join Baltimore's backfield based on his presence on the team's practice squad. He'll thus be on hand behind Gus Edwards and Justice Hill on Sunday at Cincinnati, but Gordon may be limited to just short-yardage work at this point in his career.

  • Melvin Gordon: To come off practice squad

    The Ravens plan to activate Gordon from the practice squad with J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) having suffered another season-ending injury, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports. Gordon spent training camp and the preseason in Baltimore, so he should be familiar with coordinator Todd Monken's scheme, and he'll join a backfield suddenly in serious need of quality contributors. Gus Edwards and Justice Hill look like the favorites to handle the bulk of the Ravens' carries, but Gordon could step in as the No. 3 option beginning with a Week 2 tilt against the Bengals. Undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) won't be able to return from IR until Week 5 at the earliest.

  • Melvin Gordon: Joins Baltimore's practice squad

    The Ravens signed Gordon to their practice squad on Wednesday. Gordon had been let go by the Ravens on Tuesday, but he's back in the fold to provide the organization with some veteran backfield depth via the practice squad. J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell are the running backs currently on Baltimore's 53-man roster.

  • Melvin Gordon: Let go by Ravens

    The Ravens released Gordon on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Gordon, who signed with the Ravens in July to give the team some veteran backfield depth, now finds himself looking for his next opportunity, though Pelissero suggests that Gordon could be an option for Baltimore's practice squad if he doesn't land elsewhere. With Gordon no longer in the mix, Baltimore's RB corps is currently headed by J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Plays with third-stringers

    Gordon took three carries for nine yards and caught two of four targets for 29 yards in Saturday's 26-20 preseason loss to the Buccaneers. Gordon is no better than fourth on the depth chart, as J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill all were rested for the final preseason game. Undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell represents the competition for the No. 4 RB job, if the Ravens keep four backs, but he's been dealing with a minor injury and didn't play Saturday night. Gordon might not be with the Ravens much longer and will be buried on the depth chart in the short term if he sticks around.
