Source: The #Broncos and RB Melvin Gordon have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal worth $16M with $13.5M guaranteed. The former #Chargers star stays in the division, creating a strong 1-2 punch with Phillip Lindsay.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 20, 2020
Obviously joining a backfield of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman means Melvin Gordon won’t be a bellcow, workhorse back, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have plenty of fantasy value in Denver. We’ve seen countless examples of backfield where two running backs have serious fantasy value. However, I think this puts a serious damper on any Royce Freeman value.
