Javonte Williams Note

What if I were to tell you that there's a second-year running back with second-round draft capital, a three-down skill set and 19-20 opportunities in every game this year playing in an offense quarterbacked by a future Hall-of-Famer and facing a defense that ranks No. 3 in most fantasy points allowed to opposing backfields (25.4 per game). Is that something you might be interested in? Williams is a high-end RB2 this week.

Melvin Gordon III Note

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.
