Melvin Gordon signs with the Denver Broncos

The Broncos have a talented, but crowded, backfield.

The Denver Broncos have signed ex-Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon III.

Fantasy Impact

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.
