Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams will 'factor in plenty' to the offense as a rookie because he brings an 'explosion' that RB Melvin Gordon lacks at this stage of his career, in the opinion of ESPN's Todd McShay.
Huddle Up: Gordon will likely lead the Broncos in carries in 2021, but Williams should see touches from Day 1 and could play his way into a backfield timeshare. At worst, he is a must-own handcuff for Gordon owners.

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.
