Williams is a bowling ball of a prospect that landed in a great situation here in Denver. He's a part of a dynamic offense with plenty of other weapons to take attention away from him and he should be one of the focal points of this offense sooner than later. Unfortunately, his fantasy outlook might be hampered a bit to begin his rookie season with Gordon's presence on this depth chart. In 2021, I fully expect to see a well-balanced rotation between these two RBs, which is going to effectively kill any potential that either one has this season. If something were to happen to Gordon though, Williams would immediately shoot up into top-15 territory with his talent and the opportunity in this offense. If you end up snagging Gordon in your fantasy drafts this season, it's probably a wise investment to double down and snag Williams as well in the event that one of them completely takes over this backfield at some point.

Javonte Williams could be Broncos' Week 1 starter, per beat writer

Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post said rookie RB Javonte Williams could be the Broncos' Week 1 starter.

Fantasy Impact

O'Halloran believes that Denver wouldn't have traded up in to the second round to take a running back who wasn't going to be their top guy. The Dolphins were rumored to have been interested in Williams, and the Broncos wanted to make sure they landed him. Regardless of whether or not he actually receives the Week 1 start, most everyone believes he'll usurp Melvin Gordon as the year goes on.
