Broncos' Javonte Williams done for season with torn ACL

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams suffered a season-ending right ACL tear in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

What It Means:

Williams injured his knee early in the second half on Sunday and he was seen on crutches after the game. The injury is a significant loss for fantasy owners and the Broncos' offense, which will now likely split backfield work between Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone. Gordon fumbled his first touch of the game on Sunday and then only had two more carries after that. Boone was actually the next man up ahead of Gordon and he finished with three carries and three targets for 20 yards. The Broncos will host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5 on Thursday night.

The Colts are ranked 18th in FanDuel points allowed per game to the running back position this season. Boone averaged 0.37 Rushing Net Expected Points per carry in Week 4, which is currently 12th among running backs this week. Gordon is last at negative-3.55.
