ESPN Fantasy Projection: Gordon had a successful first season in Denver in 2020, ranking ninth among backs in carries, rushing yards and TDs while finishing as RB14 in fantasy. Gordon was effective as a rusher (4.6 YPC, 1.9 YAC) and has now scored at least nine TDs in five-consecutive seasons. On the flip side, Gordon wasn't as involved as expected as a receiver (45 targets is his fewest since 2015) and struggled badly in that area (RB-worst 3.5 YPT). Durability remains a concern (he's missed at least two games in four of six NFL seasons) and the 28-year-old now has legitimate competition via second-round pick Javonte Williams. Gordon may lead the unit early on in the season, but figures to struggle for consistent RB2 numbers. He's a fine flex target in drafts.
