Melvin Gordon gains 84 yards, scores twice in Broncos victory

Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon rushed 15 times for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 20-13, Week 11 win over the Miami Dolphins.

What It Means:

Gordon saw one fewer carry than Phillip Lindsay but he gained two more yards and was given all six of the Broncos' running back carries inside the red zone, which yielded both of his touchdowns. He nearly had a third but the refs ruled that Gordon fumbled the ball before crossing the goal line. It was the first time this season Gordon rushed for at least 50 yards in a game Lindsay played at least 35.0 percent of the offensive snaps. The Dolphins have emerged as a bit of a run-funnel defense, but Gordon and the Broncos may find fewer running lanes in Week 12 against a New Orleans Saints defense that just held Todd Gurley to a season-low 26 rushing yards on Sunday.

Gordon scored 18.4 FanDuel points in Week 11, his second-highest total of the season. He's averaging the eighth-fewest yards per touch among all players with at least 100 touches this season. The Saints are allowing the fewest FanDuel points per game to the running back position this season.
