Javonte Williams expected to lead Denver Broncos in rushing attempts and yards

Denver Broncos beat writer Ryan O’Halloran predicted in his mailbag this week that rookie running back Javonte Williams “leads the team in rushing attempts and yards” this year (per Ryan O’Halloran)

Fantasy Impact: Williams is battling veteran Melvin Gordon for the top spot in Denver’s backfield. O’Halloran went on to say that he could see a situation where Gordon starts the year as the lead back but Williams quickly overtakes him to lead the backfield. Gordon is currently our RB24 in .5PPR with Williams ranked RB37. Those rankings are going to get a lot closer and even switch if news like this keeps coming out of Denver.
