Broncos waive running back Melvin Gordon after Week 11

The Denver Broncos have waived veteran running back Melvin Gordon after their Week 11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

What It Means:

Gordon's third year with the Broncos will come to a premature end after a tumultuous first half of the season. The veteran's five fumbles, several of which have come in the red zone, lead the league at the running back position, and have been a contributing factor to the team's already woeful red zone offense.

Without Gordon, Latavius Murray and Chase Edmonds (ankle) should see the rest of the running back work for Denver this season. Edmonds suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Raiders, but Murray was able to carry the ball 17 times for 49 yards and a touchdown. Murray should be added in most fantasy leagues on waivers this week.
