Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 The Broncos were able to lean on their run game last week and Gordon put together a solid performance with 17 carries for 83 yards. While he watched Williams and Bridgewater each find the end zone against the Chargers, he still provided a high floor for fantasy managers. This backfield continues to remain essentially a completely even split, which hurts both Gordon and Williams' upside. The Chiefs are middle of the pack when it comes to slowing down opposing RBs from a fantasy perspective, so we shouldn't expect a blow-up performance here from either player. Gordon can remain a solid floor play in fantasy lineups as a low-end RB2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Gordon has scored 9 fantasy points per game over his last two games, he should be a low-upside flex option against a Chiefs D that is 5th against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks.
