Melvin Gordon III

Melvin Gordon III goes for over 100 yards in Week 1

Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III rushed 11 times for 101 yards and a touchdown and added three receptions for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon was effective in rotation with rookie Javonte Williams. His big play came in the fourth quarter, where Gordon broke through the Giants' defense for a 70-yard touchdown. This backfield looks like a straight-up committee, with both backs garnering 50% of the touches in Week 1. If that's how this offense is going to run, Gordon can be considered a valuable FLEX option.
