Around the NFL: Javonte Williams / Melvin Gordon

A lot of fantasy football, both analysis and discussion, seems to be propping up some players while ripping others. I do it too, and I get it: we all have strong opinions on things, and being wishy-washy doesn't help anyone. Endorsements, and reasons to pick one player rather than another, are important. And it's long been a thing with the Denver backfield.   more »

Factoid: Rookie RBs

Travis Etienne and Javonte Williams look like key decisions to me. Both have the potential to be notable contributors as rookies, but neither is guaranteed to even be the most productive running back on his own team.  more »



RB Gordon confident he still fits with Broncos

Broncos running back MELVIN GORDON said recently that he is very confident in how he fits in as part of what has become a crowded backfield in Denver. Gordon missed mostMore of the team OTAs and minicamp, giving fellow running backs JAVONTE WILLIAMS, MIKE BOONE, and ROYCE FREEMAN plenty of playing time. Gordon added that group is looking to be the best in the league. Less


Around the NFL: Javonte Williams

Everyone gets excited about rookie running backs. We pretty much know what the best-case scenario is for established veterans, and those players are drafted accordingly (early). With rookies, there's always the chance you get 1st-round types of numbers from a guy you can select in the fourth or fifth round of drafts, and winning a league because of it. Javonte Williams is one of those potential breakouts.   more »

Around the NFL: Javonte Williams

I like the look of Javonte Williams. He’s a fun back, with the way he initiates contact and runs people over. Reminds me of Marshawn Lynch.   more »


Around the NFL: Rookie running backs

If you were watching the NFL Draft last night, you might have been wondering where all the running backs were. It was a historically thin group, with a total of four selected by the end of Round 3. That was the fewest taken in the first three rounds since 2016, which itself was the lowest number ever. Disappointing for the key position in fantasy leagues.   more »


Around the NFL: Steelers running backs

The drumbeat for the Steelers selecting a first-round running back is only getting louder. Najee Harris, Travis Etienne, Javonte Williams -- all seem like reasonable possibilities. If it happens, that player immediately merits early consideration in fantasy drafts.   more »


Factoid: Travis Etienne

There seem to be three reasonable candidates to be the first running back drafted -- maybe only two. Alabama's Najee Harris, Clemson's Travis Etienne and perhaps North Carolina's Javonte Williams; those are the players most frequently mentioned. In rookie drafts, you'll most likely be weighing Harris or Etienne.   more »
