Melvin Gordon / Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers

With the even split, Gordon’s un able to produce his RB2 consistently because he’s not scoring touchdowns each week. With them, he’s easily above 10.0 fantasy points, without them, he’s a low end flex. The same could be said about Williams since he’s only been able to go over 10.0 points with a touchdown. Neither one of them are involved in the passing game enough to make an impact in PPR play.

So here’s a few more things that are keeping the ceiling low on both backs. Teddy Bridgewater could miss his first full game of the season. He got concussed in Week 4 and Drew Lock took over at quarterback, downgrading all of the Broncos’ offense.

Next the Steelers are not a team that lets running backs score. With at least 15+ touches, which neither Gordon nor Williams are getting, some have been able to get between 70-90 rushing yards but without a touchdown or some big receptions with YAC, that means both Gordon and Williams will fall in line with other opposing running backs and score between 7.0 to 9.0 points.
