Gordon rushed 10 times for 50 yards, catching all 3 of his targets for 23 yards in Denver's Week 6 loss to the Raiders.
Gordon and rookie Javonte Williams have been splitting carries nearly 50/50 every game this season and that continued once again with Williams getting 11.
Both Gordon and Williams should continue to be used as RB3 or flex options as they are cannibalizing each other’s upside.
Gordon produced 62 yards on his 9 carries. He also caught 2 of his 4 targets for 11 yards. It was the first time all season that Gordon did not see double-digit carries, despite an impressive 6.2 YPC.
The Broncos took an early 7-0 lead at the beginning of the 2nd quarter. From that point on they failed to score, trailing by double-digits from the end of the first half on. Not exactly the positive game script needed to feed Gordon
Going forward, Gordon is not someone you are going to want to rely on as an every-week starter. He will likely be in a Drew Lock led offense for the short term, which is not conducive to a positive game script.
Long term, he will share work with rookie Javonte Williams in a far from explosive offense.. Expect around the 11 carries he has averaged in all games not against the New York Jets for 50 something yards and hope he falls into the end zone.
Gordon tallied just 61 yards but found the end zone on his 18 carries. He also caught 1 of his 2 targets for 21 yards. His 19 opportunities were the most Gordon has seen thus far this season. It was the first time where he saw a sizable opportunity share over teammate Javonte Williams.
Going forward, Denver likely won’t have many game scripts like the one against the Jets. Gordon can be a viable fantasy option, but will probably need a TD to really help you.
Gordon racked up 101 yards and a score in the drubbing of the Giants on opening day. He toted the ball 11 times, but it was the 70-scamper for a score in the 4th quarter that padded his stats and saved the day for his fantasy owners. He added 17 more yards on 3 receptions to round out his day.
Gordon was the clear starter at the beginning of the game, and he saw a good chunk of the snaps, but he was ultimately out-touched by rookie RB Javonte Williams’ 14 carries. Previous to the long run, Gordon fared fine, but there wasn’t much to write home about until he cracked off the big one. He is going to need to keep ripping off big plays to keep the eager Williams at bay. A date Jacksonville awaits Gordon this week, and you should consider him a low-end RB2.
