News: 6 days agoGordon's attorneys entered a not guilty plea for his DUI charge from Oct. 14, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Spin: Gordon recently had a virtual court hearing, and his next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 24. It sounds like the case will be resolved within the next few months, so Gordon could be suspended for the start of the 2021 regular season. He'll be entering the second season of a two-year contract after rushing for 986 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year with the Broncos.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Gordon signed on as the Broncos' new lead back, following five seasons with the Chargers. Gordon is fresh off a season when he held out for a month before posting 162-612-8 rushing and 42-296-1 receiving lines. That was enough for the 12th-most fantasy points during that span. Gordon entered 2019 having finished the previous three seasons no lower than ninth in scrimmage yards, sixth in touchdowns and eighth in fantasy points among backs. In Denver's run-heavy offense, Gordon figures to share a chunk of the carries with Phillip Lindsay, but his bigger frame should garner him more goal-line work, and he's also the superior receiver. Gordon is a mid-to-back end RB2.
