Melvin Gordon News

  • Melvin Gordon not laying down · Jun 17, 2022

    Broncos running back says he won't "lay down" in his competition for touches with sophomore Javonte Williams

    Gordon went on to say he's motivated by competition and that "iron sharpens iron." The linked article references the increase in RBBCs to keep backs fresh and healthy and it only seems that this trend has been increasing in recent years. As for Gordon, now 29, his carry-share was a dead-even (203) split with Williams while trailing modestly in receptions. Both backs found productivity in 2021 and it would seem a replay of last season is on tap again for the pair. Gordon is listed as DLF's RB44 and is a streaming option for competitive dynasty teams.

  • Melvin Gordon re-signs in Denver · Apr 27, 2022

    The Broncos have re-signed veteran running back Melvin Gordon to a one-year contract

    Gordon may have seen an upgrade in production with another team but, instead, obviously found no more than a lukewarm market as a free agent. Returning to Mile High, he'll slide back into a time-share role with sophomore runner Javonte Williams, dropping each to inconsistent RB3 candidates with upside based on touch count. For Gordon, who produced 918 yards and eight touchdowns in 2021 on 203 carries, there's a possibility the team leans more heavily on Williams to start the season but a material decline in touches isn't likely considering the veteran's production (4.5 ypc.). Recently turning 29, Gordon should still possess live legs given his lesser workload over the past four seasons. DLF's RB38 should now be considered a worthy handcuff target for coaches also possessing Williams, though could still provide valuable fill-in production for competitive teams as role based fill-in during bye weeks.

  • Melvin Gordon remains in Denver's plans · Mar 12, 2022

    Melvin Gordon and the Denver Broncos continue to have mutual interest.

    This is flying under the radar a bit as the quarterback carousel has taken center stage. However, it could be one of the biggest storylines in dynasty leagues this off-season. If Gordon does take a hometown discount to play for Denver next season, that's going to put a major pin in the dynasty value balloon of Javonte Williams. Gordon and Williams have proven to be a very effective 1-2 punch for the Broncos and keeping them makes sense as they attempt to compete with Russell Wilson in tow. However, having both obviously caps their respective values. At this point, Williams' ranking of RB3 is looking aggressive and Gordon's ranking of RB38 is looking like a bargain.

  • Melvin Gordon wanted back in Denver · Mar 1, 2022

    Broncos GM George Paton wants Melvin Gordon to return to Denver next season.

    Dynasty owners with Javonte Williams on their rosters need to close their ears. This isn't the first time we've heard mutual interest between the Broncos and Gordon on reaching another deal. If this was to come to fruition, it would be a catastrophic blow to the value of Williams, who many believe is poised to reach the top tier of running backs as soon as next season should he not have to share the backfield. At this point, Williams is our RB4 and Gordon is our RB39. Should Gordon return, he would be a prime value candidate for zero RB drafters and Williams would see his stock slide rather dramatically.
