Broncos | Melvin Gordon motivated (Fri Mar 27, 01:33 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon said during a conference call Friday, March 27, that he's carrying a chip on his shoulder entering the 2020 season. 'It's huge,' Gordon said. 'A lot of people doubt my talent as a back. ... I'm going to use that as fuel. I know the player I am, I want to show that, and I'm going to show that. I'm going to show everybody I'm better than just average.'

Our View: Gordon is going to be the feature back for the Broncos in 2020. He's got a nose for the end zone, can pick up short-yardage situations and is a good receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs can look to Gordon as a player with RB1 upside.

Broncos | Melvin Gordon eager for pairing (Fri Mar 27, 12:22 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon on Friday, March 27, said he's looking forward to joining holdover Phillip Lindsay in the Denver backfield. 'He (Lindsay) is a great back,' Gordon said. 'I watched him up close, in person, and these past few days I've been watching film on him as well. ... I think we could be a great one-two punch.'

Our View: Gordon is going to be the bellcow for the Broncos in 2020 and Lindsay will be his backup. New Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur goes with one bellcow back and the reserve back doesn't get many touches. If healthy, Gordon should touch the ball around 300 times this season and has RB1 upside for Fantasy GMs.

Broncos | Melvin Gordon expected to tote heavy load (Thu Mar 26, 07:48 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon is believed to be in line for a bell-cow role in 2020, according to James Palmer of NFL Network Thursday, March 26.

Our View: Gordon will be the lead back for the Broncos. They made him the sixth-highest paid running back in the league with an average annual salary of $8 million. Phillip Lindsay will work as a change-of-pace back.
