Fantasy Impact:

Gordon spent the 2021 season sharing the Denver backfield with rookie sensation, Javonte Williams. Denver, who has stated since the beginning of the off-season that they would welcome Gordon back, used the two RB’s in a nearly identical fashion in 2021. Last season Gordon handled 203 carries and 38 targets while Williams handled 203 carries and 53 targets. Williams’ dynasty managers have been forced to hold their collective breath for longer than anticipated this off-season while waiting to see where Gordon will sign. Williams would see preseason of 2021 Jonathan Taylor-esque hype this draft season if Gordon were to move on to another team. Gordon’s fantasy value will be dependent on where he signs, and the soon to be 29 year-old RB surely hopes his new agents will be able to find him a nice payday and his 2022 team sooner rather than later.
