He left the Chargers at the right time, as they're going to be going through a transitional period. Instead, he joins a now-exciting Broncos offense that suddenly has tons of firepower. You don't add Gordon in free agency if you don't plan on using him as your lead back. The potential upside is that new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has been a one-back kind of guy, so it's possible that Phillip Lindsay is just there to give Gordon breathers when he needs them. With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Noah Fant out there are receiving threats, Gordon should see a lot of light fronts this year. He's a middling RB2 with RB1 upside if they decide to give him 15-plus touches per game.After the way Mostert played in the playoffs, many were looking forward to a 2020 breakout season, and it helps knowing that Matt Breida was traded to the Dolphins. The issue is that they are getting Jerick McKinnon back, still have Tevin Coleman, and Jeff Wilson. The passing game also got a new weapon, which could lead to slightly more pass attempts. Despite being on the roster the past two years under Shanahan, Mostert has received 171 carries in 25 games. It's tough to see that changing drastically. There's a chance, which is why he's in the high-end RB3 conversation, but there's also a chance you can't start him with confidence every week.
Brandon Funston

Your ranking may very depending on how much you think P. Lindsay will eat into Gordon's workload, the money is on the former Charger seizing a sizable advantageTrade demands produced desired results of getting paid more money - should now be headed for a Touch/PG boost in lucrative SF backfield in 2020
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
The Broncos backfield looks like it could be the trickiest one to figure out in all of football. They paid to bring in Gordon but still roster a young and highly-talented RB in Phillip Lindsay. I see this being a near 50/50 split which is never a good thing for fantasy owners.After weeks of flip-flopping, the 49ers finally gave Mostert his shot and he never looked back. Now he enters the season as the clear RB1 in a run-heavy offense. That being said, the 49ers do use multiple backs which will make owning Mostert frustrating at times, but overall, I think he outperforms his current ADP.

Gordon's going to be splitting time with Phillip Lindsay this season, but Gordon should be the lead back in this offense. The Broncos are going to want to run the ball and Gordon should easily see over 210 carries this year. He's a solid RB2 option for your fantasy rosters.Mostert should be the lead back in this offense, but it might not lead to top-tier fantasy production. The 49ers like to deploy multiple running backs and Tevin Coleman is still going to be heavily involved. Mostert should be viewed as a RB2 this upcoming season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Mostert out-gained Tevin Coleman 772-to-544 on the same number of carries (137) and posted the same receiving yardage (180) on seven fewer catches (21-to-14). --@4for4_John
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Melvin Gordon to the Broncos is not as bad as most think. Gordon was clearly losing his role to Austin Ekeler and he now moves to an impressive run offence where he should be the clear lead guy. While Lindsay will clearly have a role, I expect Gordon to take the goal line carries, the 3rd down work and at least half of the between the tackles stuff making him the clear value in Denver. Given the Broncos backs combined for over 350 carries and 78 receptions, there's a lot of points to go around and Gordon should get the bulk of it. If Lindsay goes down there's always a chance he's a league winner too so the upside is there. Take a chance on him in the late 3rd round.After years of two 100+ rushers, in 2019 the 49ers had three guys over 120 carries but it was Mostert who stood out. Mostert "burst onto the scene" (with his fifth team in his fourth season) in 2018 before an unfortunate injury dropped him down the depth chart. His talent drew him back up though and he balled out to end the season last year. Moving forward, Matt Breida is finally gone and while Jeff Wilson will be a frustrating poachers, it's a far more management backfield duo which projects Mostert as its 1A. While he finished the season, playoffs included, with an extraordinary 12 TDs in 9 games, it's far more likely he settles into 80ish all-purpose yards and a possible TD most weeks. That's good for seasonal RB2 value with the occasional week winning explosion. That's nice and all, but there's little seasonal top-end upside so you're likely best off looking elsewhere.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
1 year to go off because Vic, and his OC Scangarello don't have much history at their current positions. Denver was an average ball running team in 2019. 409 attempts. The 100 RB targets were nice. Someone is going to disappear out of this offense. I think it's assumed to be Royce, I can believe that, but what roll do they plan on losing Lindsay in? Breather back? He can not pass block, Royce is the best on the team for that. So Lindsay now appears to lose out in every phase, one way or another to his teammates, might see less work than anticipated. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
When Gordon is healthy, he is capable of 1,500 yards from scrimmage and double digit touchdowns. He should be the lead back in Denver, but it will be a very crowded RBBC.Mostert had 952 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in a season that saw him emerge as the lead back in the RBBC at the end of the regular season and in the playoffs. He is not going to be a bell cow back, but the lead back in this RBBC is worth RB2 value.
