Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Gordon is second to Todd Gurley in fantasy points per game among running backs and has at least 120 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown in five straight games. The Denver defense is tough to figure out -- they were gashed by the run in Weeks 4-6 but have been generally stout against it otherwise -- but the matchup simply doesn't matter with a player of Gordon's caliber. He's a top-five fantasy option every week. 
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - START - Gordon has been great since his return from a mild hamstring strain. That won't change this week as he takes on the Broncos. While his Overall Risk of Injury remains Elevated, he's a high upside RB1 again this week. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Denver is just 23rd against fantasy running backs, Gordon should see the ball a lot at home against a bad Broncos run defense.
