  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    Denver might give Gordon a shot at getting 15-plus touches, but he's 29 years old with FOUR fumbles (two lost) this season, and he's saddled with a tough matchup in Week 5. He certainly might score on the Colts -- a RB has done that to Indy in each of its past three -- but he's tough to call a must-start. At best he's a flex. I'd rather start Kareem Hunt, A.J. Dillon and Rhamondre Stevenson.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Viewed as featured back by OC

    Offensive coordinator Justin Outten implied that Gordon (neck) will be the Broncos' featured back in Thursday's game against the Colts, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. "With Melvin, he's going to carry the load, obviously. We'll have a mix of [Mike] Boone and then after that we got to figure out who can spell and who feels best in that position," Outten said Tuesday. Outten's comments about Gordon are a notable departure from what Nathaniel Hackett had to say earlier in the day about the Denver backfield situation in the wake of Javonte Williams suffering a season-ending knee injury, with the head coach declining to name a new lead back, per Stevens. Hackett may have just wanted to keep his plans close to the vest, but Outten's statements offer fantasy managers some more clarity about the Broncos' intentions as Thursday's game approaches. Gordon has already fumbled four times in 2022 and is averaging a pedestrian 3.8 yards per carry, but his wealth of experience looks like it'll at least give him the initial edge over Boone to replace Williams as the top option at running back. Outten's omission of the newly signed Latavius Murray from the backfield conversation suggests that the 32-year-old is likely to have only a small role at best in Week 5 if he's active at all, though Murray could push for more work as he settles into his new surroundings.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Stays limited in walk-through

    Gordon (neck) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice. The neck issue doesn't seem to be a serious threat to Gordon's availability for Thursday's game against the Colts, as the veteran back was a limited participant for much of last week due to the same injury before heading into Sunday's eventual loss to the Raiders without a designation. His fantasy outlook has improved in the wake of Javonte Williams (knee) suffering a season-ending injury, but Gordon won't necessarily have a clear-cut path to the No. 1 role out of the backfield, as head coach Nathaniel Hackett indicated Tuesday he hasn't committed to a starter for Week 5, per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com. Though he has a longer track record of success in the NFL than Mike Boone and hasn't bounced around the league as much as new signee Latavius Murray, Gordon's fumbling habit likely explains Hackett's hesitancy to name him as the Broncos' new starting back. The 29-year-old has already put the ball on the carpet four times this season, with his most recent fumble getting returned for a touchdown in Sunday's loss. For what it's worth, Hackett told Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site that Gordon had a "great mental day" at Tuesday's practice, which offers some hope that he might be back in the staff's good graces as Thursday's game approaches.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Limited on practice estimate

    Gordon (neck) was listed as limited on Monday's practice estimate. Gordon managed a neck issue ahead of Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Raiders, but he approached the contest minus an injury designation before suiting up and logging three carries for eight yards and a fumble. At this stage, there's nothing to suggest that Gordon's availability for Thursday night's game against the Colts is in any danger, and assuming he's active, added snaps and carries will be available to Gordon and Mike Boone after fellow running back Javonte Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: In line for increased volume

    With Javonte Williams having suffered a season-ending knee injury, Gordon is in line to see an expanded role in Denver's backfield in the weeks ahead, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Though Gordon has fumbled four times in as many games this season while sharing work with Williams, the 29-year-old's experience as a lead back makes him the obvious choice to see an uptick in volume, with Mike Boone also likely in line to log increased work and Devine Ozigbo a candidate to be elevated from Denver's practice squad.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Struggles in Sunday's loss

    Gordon carried the ball three times for eight yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Raiders. Making his afternoon worse, the veteran running back coughed up a fumble in the second quarter that Amik Robertson returned 68 yards for a Las Vegas touchdown. Gordon's now committed four fumbles through four games, with Denver losing possession on two of them, but the team may have no choice but to give him a much bigger role in the coming weeks after Javonte Williams suffered what could be a serious knee injury Sunday. If Williams is sidelined, Gordon might take on a lead role or work in a timeshare with Mike Boone against the Colts in Week 5.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Javonte Williams remains the No. 1 running back in Denver, but Gordon continues to have a role and be productive. And he's worth using as a flex option this week against the Raiders. Gordon had 12 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the 49ers, and he also added five catches for 29 yards on six targets. The Raiders have allowed a running back to score in three games in a row, and Gordon could find the end zone once again in this matchup.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Set to play Sunday

    Gordon (neck) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Las Vegas. Gordon operated under some practice limitations Wednesday and Thursday, but after going through all drills to end Week 4 prep, he's clear for Sunday. On the season, he's been well behind backfield mate Javonte Williams in both snap share (55.3 to 37.2 percent) and touches (52-42), but Gordon at least has visited the end zone one time through three games (Williams has no TDs).

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Remains limited in practice

    Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said Gordon (neck) will remain a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Though Gordon has had his reps capped in both of the Broncos' first two Week 4 practice session, Hackett hasn't suggested that the running back's status is in major jeopardy for Sunday's 4:25 ET game against the Raiders. Assuming he's able to suit up for that contest, Gordon would continue to share backfield work with Javonte Williams this weekend versus Las Vegas.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Logs limited practice

    Gordon was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. At this stage, there's nothing to suggest that Gordon's availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders is in any danger, but his status is now worth tracking nonetheless. Three games into the 2022 season, Gordon has logged 34 carries and nine passing targets, while fellow running back Javonte Williams has carried 37 times and been targeted 21 times. While he continues to occupy the smaller side of a timeshare, Gordon's weekly fantasy upside is limited, but he has at least notched double-digit carries in each of his first three outings.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Get 11 touches in win

    Gordon rushed 10 times for 47 yards and caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Texans. Gordon and fellow running back Javonte Williams were in a great spot against Houston's subpar defense, though neither back was able to have a breakout performance. In fact, the entire Denver offense continued to appear stale. Gordon took a backseat to Williams on the ground and through the air, seeing five fewer rushing attempts and three fewer targets. Despite handling less touches than Williams, the 29-year-old was similarly efficient. Gordon averaged 4.7 yards per carry, which was slightly behind Williams' average of 5.0 yards per carry. Denver's coaching staff seems committed to using both backs, so Gordon should continue to see a solid share of work going forward. The value of those touches, however, will depend on whether or not the Broncos can figure out their offensive woes. Denver will have the chance to do just that when the 49ers come to town in Week 3.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Loses key fumble in narrow loss

    Gordon rushed 12 times for 58 yards, caught both of his targets for 14 yards and lost a fumble in Monday's 17-16 loss to the Seahawks. Gordon got the call on fourth-and-goal from Seattle's one-yard line but was stopped short and had the ball pop loose for a fumble. Javonte Williams then fumbled at the four-yard line on Denver's next possession, so neither running back asserted himself as the clear top option in the red zone. A game plan heavy on runs and short passes allowed both Gordon and Williams (108 scrimmage yards on seven carries and 11 catches) to get plenty of touches, and Gordon should remain heavily involved in Week 2 against Houston.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Affirms health

    Gordon confirmed Wednesday that his foot is no longer bothering him, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Gordon returned to practice Monday and seems to have avoided any issues with the foot contusion that held him out last week. He's set to share work with Javonte Williams again in 2022, with Williams presumably taking a larger piece of the pie this season. Gordon said Wednesday that he expects Williams to be the starter but isn't sure how the rotation will work and knows he's "still got the juice," per Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Suited up for practice

    Gordon (foot) is participating in Monday's padded practice, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. The running back has been considered day-to-day and was expected to return to practice this week. It's possible he's somewhat limited, but this confirms his foot contusion is nothing serious and no major threat to his Week 1 availability. It's unclear if Gordon (and other key veterans) will play in Saturday's preseason matchup with Buffalo.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Day-to-day with foot injury

    Gordon is day-to-day with a foot issue, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, Gordon, who is dealing with a foot contusion, likely will practice this week, but it's unclear if the running back is a candidate to see any work in Saturday's preseason contest against the Bills.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Misses another practice

    Gordon (foot) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Gordon also sat out Wednesday's session, but coach Nathaniel Hackett downplayed the running back's absence. "We're just taking care of his foot, and we're just making sure he's good," Hackett noted, while adding, "We want to make sure he's primed and ready for the season." Following back-to-back missed practices, Gordon is unlikely to appear in Saturday's preseason opener against the Cowboys.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Out with foot injury

    Gordon missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett doesn't sound too worried, noting that Gordons' injury is something that needs to be managed during training camp. With Gordon missing some practice time, Mike Boone could rotate in with the first-team offense behind Javonte Williams. The real question, of course, is how the Broncos divide work between Gordon and Williams when both are healthy. Reports from Denver beat writers have been varied, though all seem to agree that Williams has at least been getting a slightly larger share of the first-team work during training camp.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Expected to be impact player

    Coach Nathaniel Hackett believes Gordon will have an impact on the Broncos' offense in 2022, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Gordon enters the 2022 campaign on a one-year deal he signed in April after the Broncos traded for quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason. The veteran running back agreed to rejoin Denver, and he believes that the team is committed to a system that can support multiple backs. According to Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, the team's offensive coordinator, Justin Outten, said the running backs will be on a pitch count this season. With that said, Gordon asserts Hackett "is drawing enough stuff up that everybody can have the chance to get the ball." In fact, the coaching staff is making it a priority to get the running backs more involved in the passing game. In Hackett's three years as the Packers' offensive coordinator, running back Aaron Jones played a significant role in the team's passing attack, finishing second or third in receptions each year. If Gordon can carve out this role with the Broncos, he could hold quite a bit of value in fantasy this season for a back that figures to be part of a committee. The 29-year-old stands to benefit from what projects to be a drastically improved offense this season with Wilson at the helm.

  • Broncos' Melvin Gordon: Officially signs with Denver

    Gordon signed a one-year, $2.5 million base deal with the Broncos on Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The veteran running back has a chance to make up to $4 million with incentives, though it was previously reported that the contract could be worth up to $5 million. As the figures were clarified Thursday, it appears that the duo of Gordon and Javonte Williams are likely headed toward some sort of split in workload out of the backfield once again in 2022. Both backs found success in what was an inconsistent offense last season. The addition of Russell Wilson at quarterback could be the spark that both Gordon and Williams need to take their fantasy potential to the next level, even if they continue to share duties at a near-even split again.
