Melvin Gordon III expected to sign with the Chiefs practice squad

Melvin Gordon III is expected to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon was released by the Broncos last week and cleared waivers. The Chiefs backfield is currently led by Isaiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon. Kanas City still plays Denver twice this season.

Melvin Gordon III clears waivers

Melvin Gordon III cleared waivers and is now a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon had a dreadful season with Denver, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry and struggling to hold onto the ball, particularly around the goal-line. He'll almost certainly catch on with a contending team in need of running back depth and a veteran presence, but given how he performed this year, it's difficult to see him making a fantasy impact. Unless he lands in the perfect situation, ignore him for fantasy purposes.

Melvin Gordon III waived by Broncos on Monday

The Broncos waived RB Melvin Gordon III on Monday following three seasons with the team.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon's tenure with Denver comes to an untimely end, and a fresh start will be provided for both him and the team. He was effective with the team the past couple of seasons, but durability issues and continued fumbling concerns pushed him out of favor in HC Nathaniel Hackett's new regime. Gordon will have a good chance of signing on with another team in short order, possibly with a contending franchise as a depth-piece.

Melvin Gordon III nonfactor against Raiders on Sunday

Melvin Gordon III rushed eight times for 31 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for an additional 39 yards against the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon also nearly lost his third fumble of the season, as that issue continues to haunt his playing days. Gordon simply lacks both the burst and volume that cemented him as a fantasy stalwart over the past handful of seasons. There continues to be no reason to start him in anything less than 16-to-20-team fantasy leagues.

Melvin Gordon III doesn't do much in Sunday loss

Melvin Gordon III rushed seven times for 24 yards and hauled in 4-of-6 targets for an additional 46 yards as the Broncos fell to the Titans 17-10 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The receiving total was nice, but it is clear as day that the Denver backfield is a full blown RBBC. Gordon should not be anywhere near fantasy lineups while playing in this brutal Broncos' system. As a matter of fact, there is no reason he shouldn't be residing on league waiver wires at this point in time.
