Melvin Gordon agrees to two-year, $16M deal with the Broncos

Former Chargers RB Melvin Gordon has agreed to a two-year, $16M deal with the Denver Broncos. $13.5M is guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon stays in the AFC West and heads to a division rival. He’ll look to create a thunder and lightning backfield tandem with RB Phillip Lindsay. It looks like RB Royce Freeman could potentially be the odd man out in the Denver backfield. There’s no denying that Gordon has all the talent in the world, but he underwhelmed in 2019 with the Chargers in an injury-riddled year. He only rushed for 612 yards on 3.8 yards per carry. He still managed to find the end zone nine times, salvaging his “down-year.” Gordon will look to bounce back in 2020 with the Broncos, and both he and Lindsay should be considered RB2s for fantasy purposes.
