The Raiders have had a tough week, with the Jon Gruden email scandal throwing the organization into turmoil. If the Raiders come into Denver flat this weekend, both of the Broncos' running backs could produce satisfying rushing numbers. Williams' carry totals this season have been dictated by game script. When Denver raced out to a 3-0 start, Williams was averaging 13 carries. Over the last two weeks, with Denver playing mostly from behind in losses to the Ravens and Steelers, Williams has averaged 7.5 carries. The rookie managed to make the most of his carries in Week 5, rushing eight times for 61 yards. He's had three receptions in three straight games. Gordon's volume has also waned in the last two weeks. He averaged 14 carries a game in the Broncos' three wins, nine carries in their two losses. Williams is ranked RB20 this week, Gordon RB21. I really like Williams at $5,000 on DraftKings, and Gordon has some GPP appeal at $5,100.

Melvin Gordon III (leg) listed as questionable for Week 6

Denver RB Melvin Gordon is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders with a leg injury.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon was limited at practice this week with the leg but appears on track to go against the Raiders. Fantasy managers would be wise to monitor on game day. If he goes, Gordon can be considered a low-end RB2.
