Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon's attorneys on Thursday, Jan. 14, in virtual court entered a not guilty plea to a DUI charge last Oct. 14 in Denver. Gordon's next hearing is a disposition on Feb 24.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on this offseason as Gordon could wind up opening the 2021 season on a league-issued suspension, depending on how things play out.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon rushed 16 times for 79 yards in a 19-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Gordon dominated the backfield touches, and he continues to produce solid, albeit unspectacular, stat lines. He's a midrange RB2 candidate heading into the season finale.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon ran for 61 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Dec. 19. He also caught all four of his targets for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Gordon was the lone bright spot for the miserable Broncos offense. He kept getting work late in the lopsided loss and unexpectedly added his second touchdown in the fourth quarter. He has proven to be a reliable fantasy option, even when nothing else goes right for Denver.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) is listed as questionable but is expected to play Saturday, Dec. 19, against the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gordon has been playing his best ball of the season of late, averaging 105.7 yards from scrimmage over his last three true games, aside from Denver's QB-less contest against the Saints, and he's a low-end RB2 option this week against the Bills.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Gordon appears to have a good chance to play this week, but fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. He probably will see a majority of the work at running back if he plays and can be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder) will be listed as questionable for the Week 15 game Saturday, Dec. 19, against the Buffalo Bills, head coach Vic Fangio said Thursday.
Huddle Up: Gordon appears to be on the right side of questionable, and if he gets the green light, he's a low-end RB2 option this weekend.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon III (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Gordon's trending in the right direction to be able to play Saturday, Dec. 19, against the Buffalo Bills. He'll be a fine RB2 play and should see more work in the passing game.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon registered 68 rushing yards on 13 attempts in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers and he added three receptions for 23 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Gordon has now gone three straight games without a visit to the end zone, tying a season high. But he has double-digit touches in five straight outings, and continues to be a workhorse in the Mile High City. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option across the board heading into Week 15 against Buffalo on Saturday.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon ran for a season-high 131 yards on 15 carries and added a 15-yard catch on two targets in Week 13 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Gordon shared the backfield almost right down the middle with Philip Lindsay (14 carries), but the former outgained the latter on the ground 131-26. While Gordon did run with authority, the difference in production was due to considerably better blocking on his runs than Lindsay had, including a 65-yarder in the first half. The Broncos have been splitting the work between the two backs somewhat evenly in recent weeks, making Gordon a low-end RB2 option in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.
