Melvin Gordon III Week 4 Outlook - Chiefs at Buccaneers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 29th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

Gordon is the No. 33 running back with 8.7 fantasy points per game. This year he has exhibited a reasonable floor with 11-18 opportunities in each game, but his efficiency has declined (3.9 yards per carry, 5.4 yards per target), and he has lost a significant share of the receiving work to Williams. He has a good matchup: The Raiders defense is No. 24 in rush success rate (44.3%) and No. 29 in pass DVOA against running backs (63.0%). But with his diminished usage and production, Gordon is hard to trust as anything more than a fantasy RB3/flex.
