The Broncos have agreed to a 1-year deal with RB Melvin Gordon worth up to $5 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's obviously well short of what Denver paid Gordon the past 2 years, and the Broncos now sport a new coaching staff. But his return lowers the fantasy ceiling for 2nd-year RB Javonte Williams. We'll continue betting on the 22-year-old to lead Denver's backfield in fantasy points, but the decision by both the team and Gordon to make the agreement now clearly indicates a continued significant role for the veteran. We'll see how far Gordon's return pushes down the ADP for Williams, who has been occupying late Round 1 territory in early best-ball drafts. Gordon has slipped well into the double-digit rounds and could very well remain in that range over at least the next few days, while drafters figure out where he belongs. If he does, pounce.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that RB Melvin Gordon is "in discussions with the Ravens on a potential deal." Rapoport adds that Baltimore "still has a need at RB." That bit is interesting because it could either be Rapoport's quick-hand assessment of the situation (many of which can be lacking) -- or it could be a belief by the Ravens that he's been fed by a source. We're certainly not adjusting any fantasy outlooks until such a signing actually happens. But if Gordon does join the Ravens, it would obviously be bad news for J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. It would also seem to lower Gordon's ceiling vs. other potential landing spots -- though might be similar to Denver in that category. A Gordon signing could also signal a Baltimore plan to lean further back to the run than we might have expected, following a significant shift toward the pass with their 2021 offense.

It looks like RB Melvin Gordon will hit free agency, according Denver radio host and Broncos insider Benjamin Allbright. "There had been mutual interest in RB Melvin Gordon and possible Broncos return, but looks like that's not gonna happen," he tweeted Monday. Should a Gordon departure come to fruition in unrestricted free agency, the ceiling on 2nd-year RB Javonte Williams would rank right with the RBs currently going in Round 1 of fantasy football drafts. We'll see, of course, what else Denver chooses to do at the position this offseason. Mike Boone also remains on the depth chart after signing in free agency last spring.

Broncos GM George Paton said he’s had “really good discussions” with impending free agent RB Melvin Gordon. Paton added that he’d “like” to have Gordon back — no surprise given the veteran’s strong 2021. Gordon earned a top-10 rushing grade from Pro Football Focus and held up well on 231 touches, missing only 1 game. Denver’s currently flush with cap space, so the team has the means to bring Gordon back for year 3. Of course, such a move would hurt Javonte Williams, who’s currently being drafted as an RB1.

Broncos RBs Melvin Gordon (thumb, hip) and Javonte Williams (knee) are active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. Gordon got in 3 limited practices this week; Williams was limited on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday with some knee swelling. We never heard much concern for either guy, though, so we’re expecting the status quo in Denver’s backfield today.
