Isaiah Sirois

I'm breaking with the consensus on Gordon. Yes, there are concerns about his injury and DUI, and yes, Phillip Lindsay looked great last Sunday. It's less risky to bench Gordon and see how the Broncos divvy up the carries, but Gordon currently ranks 12th in median points per game (14.75), and it'll be difficult for Denver to move away from him in a big spot. The Chiefs field an average defense against the run, so expect an average day out of Gordon. He's a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 for me here. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gordon should return for this matchup after missing last week with an illness. While he does have the potential suspension hanging over his head, it might be a while before we get official word on that situation. Until we get word, Gordon should be viewed as a high-end RB3 in this matchup with Lindsay back and involved in this offense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
So, apparently, Gordon had strep throat last week and it was the reason for missing the game. He's still facing a possible three-game suspension by the league, so it's a situation we need to pay attention to as the week goes on. Lindsay stepped in and played well in his absence, racking up 101 yards on the ground against a tough Patriots run defense. Do the Broncos move towards more of a timeshare with Lindsay back to full health? Against the Chiefs, they'll want to utilize their running backs a lot. Their opponents have chosen a run play on 47.2 percent of plays, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. In terms of weighted opportunity, running backs average the 10th-most against the Chiefs, and though the numbers haven't been huge to this point, the level of competition has been weak. Per Football Outsiders DVOA, the Chiefs are still the sixth-worst run defense in the league. The question is: Can the Broncos keep the game close enough to keep getting touches to their running backs? Six different running backs have totaled 62 or more yards on the ground, while seven running backs have totaled at least 25 yards through the air. If Gordon plays, you have to assume he gets the majority of work, including pass-game and goal-line usage, which is important, so consider him a somewhat sturdy RB2, though the 18.8-point team-implied total is worrisome. Lindsay didn't even get a single target last week, which worries me about his floor. Lindsay also played this team twice last year without Gordon and finished two games with just 68 scoreless yards on 18 carries. He's more of an RB3/flex play this week who carries gamescript concerns, as he ran just 11 routes in Gordon's absence last week.
