Gordon is bound to be written off by fantasy draft pundits this offseason due to his age, but he proved that he still has gas in the tank in 2021. The 29-year-old running back was efficient across the board, ranking eighth in both PFF rushing grade (83.4) and forced missed tackles (45) while compiling 231 touches (16th).
With him back on a high-powered offense and with the potential to receive goal-line touches, he could easily become a screaming value in 2022 like James Conner or Leonard Fournette last year.

Was an RB2 last year with a worse offense, he will likely finish better than where he is drafted but upside is clearly capped. A good 0RB or Hero RB late target as he will be serviceable more weeks than not.

5/2 Update: Returns to Denver where he was the RB21 last year in a grosser overall offense. Significant upside at a minimal price
