BRONCOS RUNNING BACKS @ BROWNS
We have a two-for-one tempering as this backfield is pretty much a 50/50 split between veteran Melvin Gordon and rookie Javonte Williams. The Denver duo is cannibalizing themselves into low-end RB2 production for Gordon, and RB4 output from Williams through six contests.
They head to Cleveland on a short week, to face a Browns rushing defense that is only allowing 15.1 half-PPR points to opposing backfields, the second-lowest in the NFL. This unit has also only given up two total rushing touchdowns to RBs this season, which does not bode well for this tandem. I know RB bodies are tough to come by this week, but if you can sit both Broncos, it could be for the best.
Meanwhile, I'm using Javonte and/or Gordon across my teams thanks to byes and injuries. In one of my teams I'm forced to play both 😅
