Melvin Gordon III Week 7 Outlook - Broncos at Browns

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 21st 2021, 6:11am EDT

Williams leads the league in missed tackles per carry, according to PFF. He's averaging 3.5 yards after contact. For sake of comparison, Derrick Henry is averaging 3.6 yards after contact. Williams has been every bit as good as advertised, if not better. Gordon has been solid, too, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and 7.4 yards per target. This continues to be a true 50/50 split, and that arrangement has held steady through the first six weeks. In Week 7, Williams and Gordon face a Cleveland run defense that has continued to hold steady even as the Browns' pass defense has slid into a funk. The Browns are giving up 3.6 yards per carry and rank third in DVOA against the run. Both rank as lower-end RB2s.
