Despite Nick Chubb getting hurt and missing 4.5 games, Hunt failed to meet expectations in 2020. Sure, he finished as a top-10 running back at season's end, but if you were to ask his managers, they'd tell you he was a flex-type option. He finished as an RB2 or better in just 56.3 percent of games in PPR formats, which was slightly behind Miles Sanders and slightly ahead of Ronald Jones. His value was arguably better with Chubb on the field last year, so maybe it's a matter of keeping him fresh? Whatever the case, Hunt should be a strong RB3/flex option who has 20-touch upside should Chubb miss time.When the Broncos signed Gordon to a two-year, $16 million contract, you had to assume they were going to use him in a big role. That's not quite what happened, as they continually wanted to involve Phillip Lindsay. After letting him walk in free agency, they snagged Mike Boone, which was a downgrade from Lindsay. Okay... but that wasn't it. They drafted Javonte Williams at the top of the second round, a running back who'll certainly compete for touches immediately. Gordon isn't going to simply go away making the money he is, but he's also not likely going to get the 16.5 touches per game he was in 2020. There's also a possible suspension coming Gordon's way for a DUI incident last year, which needs to be factored into his fantasy stock. He's not someone you should be relying on for anything more than RB3/flex production.

 Gordon will most likely dominate the receptions, two-minute offense, and goaline touches at RB for the first half of the season. When Gordon starts to break-down Javonte Williams should seamlessly start to take-over.

Kareem Hunt's season last year is really the tale of two halves. From Weeks 1-8, Hunt was the RB7 in all of fantasy football. However, Weeks 9-17, Hunt was the RB17 through that time frame. With Nick Chubb back in the lineup, Hunt was certainly still involved, but he did very little with his opportunity. He's a bit of a mystery heading into 2021 and his ADP should reflect that. Fantasy managers might be skeptical on adding him to their rosters as anything more than a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3, but if you can get him for that price tag, that's a worthy investment. Anything more than that and you might be disappointed with what you get. My Very Early Projection: 153-689-4 rushing & 41-339-2 receiving.Fantasy managers were feeling pretty good about Melvin Gordon heading into 2021 after Phillip Lindsay's departure, but that all came quickly crashing back down with the drafting of Javonte Williams. This season, it's likely that Gordon is still the lead back, but Williams is certainly going to see some work. This situation could end up being very similar to Baltimore's from last year with Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins, which doesn't exactly bode well for Gordon's season-long outlook. In my opinion, drafting Gordon as anything more than a low-end RB2 is a recipe for disaster. My Very Early Projection: 200-960-6 rushing & 27-174-1 receiving.

Hunt is in a RBBC. So the good news is he at least has stand alone value. And, If anything happens to Nick Chubb you're in business. Possible league winner, but you have to get him at a good price.Gordon's days in Denver seem to be numbered. The old regime signed him in free agency. They're gone now. The Broncos drafted Javonte Williams. At best Gordon is in a RBBC on a shaky offense. The best thing that could happened would be him getting traded or cut and going to a better team where he could be a three down RB once again. If that doesn't happen, I don't see much upside here.

Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hunt was the 10th ranked fantasy back this year with 199.5 fantasy points, but he also benefited from Nicholas Chubb missing 4 games. He should still have a significant role in 2021, but he is more of a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 if Chubb stays healthy the entire season.Gordon had a solid year with 182.4 considering all the injuries and bad quarterback play the Broncos had this year. Gordon is going to lose touches to Javonte Williams, but Gordon should still be a flex option.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Update - the Broncos TRADED UP to get Javonte Williams, and MGIII is on his last year. Williams will take over this backfield sooner than later, and Shurmur prefers a workhorse so MGIII might be meaningless by 2021's end
