He left the Chargers at the right time, as they're going to be going through a transitional period. Instead, he joins a now-exciting Broncos offense that suddenly has tons of firepower. You don't add Gordon in free agency if you don't plan on using him as your lead back. The potential upside is that new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has been a one-back kind of guy, so it's possible that Phillip Lindsay is just there to give Gordon breathers when he needs them. With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Noah Fant out there are receiving threats, Gordon should see a lot of light fronts this year. He's a middling RB2 with RB1 upside if they decide to give him 15-plus touches per game.

Melvin Gordon’s free agent deal with the Broncos officially processed

RB Melvin Gordon is now officially a member of the Denver Broncos after his free agent deal from back in March officially processed Monday with the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Denver waited until April 27 at 4:00 PM to officially process the Gordon signing so as to not have it count against the Broncos compensatory picks formula. Strategic move on their part - and now Gordon can officially get to work with his new team. He’s currently ranked #21 in the FantasyPros consensus RB rankings.
