Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III “is in line to be the clear-cut starter at running back,” says The Athletic’s Nick Kosmider. While the team drafted Javonte Williams and signed Mike Boone, it appears those two will mainly work as relief for Gordon, at least in the early going. Gordon spent last training camp fighting with Phillip Lindsay for that lead role, something that wound up impacting Gordon mentally at times Williams will probably play a key role this season, but Gordon will get the first crack at showing he can handle the bulk of the workload. He’s a high-end RB3 with upside who is going a little later in fantasy drafts than he should.
