Another workhorse role appears to be on the horizon for Gordon, which is good news for fantasy football investors, because all the guy does is rack up points (as long as he’s healthy enough to suit up).

Gordon joins Le’Veon Bell, Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley, Saquon Barkley and Leonard Fournette as the only running backs who have averaged at least 20 touches per game since 2017. And he stands out among the second-tier fantasy RBs: Lead backs with three-down ability on above-average offenses. Ian Hartitz
