The Broncos backfield was in a smash spot last week, but both Gordon and Lindsay failed to deliver against the Raiders. They'll have a tougher matchup with the Dolphins this week, as Miami ranks eight spots better than the fifth-worth Raiders against running backs. It seems that Gordon is still the favored rusher in this backfield, despite Lindsay's occasional bursts of efficiency, and he's the better start here because of that. You can start Gordon as a low-end RB2/FLEX here, but I would leave Lindsay on your bench or on waivers.The Jets aren't an attractive offense in fantasy football. At running back, La'Mical Perine has averaged just 6.5 half-PPR points per game; that includes three games with fewer than five points. Behind him, Frank Gore has averaged 6.3 per game, and while he's been more consistent (he's scored more than five points in three games), he also has a much lower ceiling. I would leave both of them out of your fantasy lineups unless you have no other options at RB3/FLEX.

The Dolphins are 18th against fantasy backs, but Gordon has seen only 25 carries in the last 3 games. He is more of a low-upside flex option playing for a team that often falls behind early in games. 
Mike Tagliere

We've gone back and forth every week on these two, trying to figure out who has the most value, but in the end, what if it's neither of them? Just once have one of them finished as a top-20 running back since Week 4. The Broncos defense is falling behind early and often, forcing them into a negative gamescript and passing more than they'd like. The Dolphins haven't allowed a rushing touchdown to a running back since way back in Week 4 and haven't allowed more than 128 yards on the ground to any team of running backs. It helps that they haven't faced many carries (21.8 per game), which is not great for this timeshare. They have allowed a high 6.55 yards per target to running backs, which ranks as the sixth-highest mark in the league, and part of the reason they've allowed the 13th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. The Broncos haven't seemed to take advantage of matchups like this, like when they played the Falcons a few weeks ago, a team that had been crushed through the air by running backs, but Gordon and Lindsay combined for just one catch. Considering Gordon played double the snaps that Lindsay did, Gordon would be the preferred option, though he's nothing more than an RB3. Meanwhile, Lindsay finds himself in RB4 territory.For those who were hoping that Perine would eventually get to showcase his ability, it seems Adam Gase doesn't want to make that happen. Since cutting Le'Veon Bell, the touch count has been Gore 50, Perine 40. We're seeing a lot more of Gore with early-down work (he's outproducing Perine there) while Perine is getting slightly more passing-down usage. When you see this sort of timeshare in a backfield that averages just 23.0 touches per game, it's a problem. The Chargers have seen just 25.8 running back touches per game, which is one of the lower marks in the league, which again, is not good for a timeshare. Gore has now gone 230 carries without a single touchdown, which dates back to Week 3 of last year. Add in his 3.57 yards per carry he's averaging, and it really doesn't matter that the Chargers are allowing 4.87 yards per carry. They've tightened up in the red zone, too, allowing just five rushing touchdowns (seventh-fewest) on 178 carries. Production through the air against them has been minimal, as they've allowed just 4.59 yards per target, which is the third-lowest mark in the league. There was a report that came out on Wednesday where Adam Gase said Perine would "get more work moving forward" but also went on to say that Gore will still be involved. I suppose we should expect Perine to lead the timeshare, but even then, he's stuck in the low-end RB3/high-end RB4 territory, as this duo has averaged just 22.5 touches per game over the last four games.
