Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Melvin Gordon III Note

Gordon lost a fumble in Week 1 against the Titans, but it was otherwise a great night for the veteran, who ran well and scored a touchdown. Phillip Lindsay's toe injury should keep him out of action for a bit, which will benefit Gordon going forward. His outlook seems far less cloudy now and he can be thought of as a solid RB2 as of now.

Jerry Jeudy Note

Jeudy has had a modest start to his NFL career, which was to be expected given the lack of preseason games. But Courtland Sutton's season-ending injury opens up the door for Jeudy to take on a bigger role in the offense. Even with Jeff Driskel under center, Jeudy's target volume should make him a fairly reliable starter in fantasy circles going forward.

Noah Fant Note

Fant has been an integral part of the Broncos' offense early part in the season, with 11 targets and nine receptions overall and a touchdown in each of Denver's first two games. With Courtland Sutton out for the season, Fant should maintain his current usage, and be valued as a top-10 tight end going forward.

Phillip Lindsay Note

Lindsay is dealing with turf toe and is likely to miss a few games. Melvin Gordon looked like the superior back against the Titans in any event, but Lindsay should maintain his role on the short side of the platoon when he returns. Given the difficulties that turf toe presents, however, there's no reason to hold Lindsay on your roster if you're in a crunch.

Royce Freeman Note

Freeman should see an expanded role now with Phillip Lindsay sidelined with turf toe. But he saw little action even after Lindsay left the game in Week 1, so don't expect him to go back to close to a 50-50 split like he saw last year. Other than extremely deep leagues, there's little reason to concern yourself with Freeman even with his likely increase in usage.
