The Denver Broncos are wrapping up the 2020 season with a Week 17 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders and Melvin Gordon has a chance to make up for the poor outing he had the last time he faced these divisional rivals. Let’s go over Gordon’s fantasy outlook ahead of this weekend’s action.
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos RB Melvin Gordon
Gordon has gotten consistent touches for quite some time now and has reached double-digits in carries for seven straight contests. He’s eclipsed 60 rushing yards five times during that span but busted against Las Vegas with just 46 rushing yards on 11 carries earlier this season. Phillip Lindsay will end the year on the IR and Royce Freeman has been used sparingly in recent weeks. Gordon has a clear path to high involvement if regardless of the game script.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Gordon and expect him to improve upon his last game against the Raiders.
