The Baltimore Ravens elevated running back Melvin Gordon III from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's AFC North battle with the Browns. The move isn't much of a surprise, even with the latest report indicating Justice Hill (toe) is expected to play in Week 4. But Gordon or even Hill, for that matter, can be trusted in any fantasy format, especially with Gus Edwards in the equation.

Baltimore Ravens running back Melvin Gordon III was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. With J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) done for the year, the Ravens needed to make a move to add depth to the position. Of course, Justice Hill and Gus Edwards are expected to split carries out of the backfield in Week 2 versus the Bengals. As a result, Gordon shouldn't do much for fantasy managers. However, it appears there's a chance for anyone to get involved at the running back spot moving ahead, so Gordon is at least worth monitoring.

Baltimore Ravens running back Melvin Gordon III has signed with the team to be a member of their practice squad one day after being released. The veteran RB didn't do enough during camp to crack the 53-man roster but they were able to bring him back this way. After fizzling out with the Broncos over 10 games last season, posting 318 yards on 90 carries to go along with two touchdowns, he ended up on the Chiefs practice squad for the remainder of the season. Gordon III signed a one-year deal with Baltimore back on July 21 and will now serve as an emergency option for the Ravens if J.K. Dobbins or Gus Edwards were to ever get hurt.

The Baltimore Ravens released running back Melvin Gordon III on Tuesday, according to a source. Gordon didn't do enough to win a spot on the team's 53-man roster entering the 2023 regular season, but he could find himself back with Baltimore on their practice squad if he doesn't sign elsewhere. J.K. Dobbins leads the team's RB depth chart, with Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and rookies Keaton Mitchell and Owen Wright behind him. The 30-year-old Gordon almost reached 1,000 yards rushing in his first two seasons with the Denver Broncos in 2020 and 2021, but he played in just 10 games (six starts) last year and finished with 318 yards and two touchdowns on 90 carries (3.5 yards per tote), adding 25 receptions for 223 yards through the air.

Baltimore Ravens running back Melvin Gordon III had one more shot to prove he belongs on the roster and didn't do all that much on Saturday. The veteran back ended with nine yards on three carries and 19 yards on two catches. While Gordon did show he had some juice, he didn't prove to be much better than Justice Hill and Keaton Mitchell. Most projected depth charts have Gordon missing the cut, so he'll look to join a team that may be in dire need of a running back due to injury after the season starts. He could be one to monitor on the waiver wire.

Baltimore Ravens running back Melvin Gordon III saw the bulk of the backfield work during the first half of the team's preseason contest on Monday night. After seeing six carries in the preseason opener, he saw eight carries against the Washington Commanders and turned it into 34 yards. He also had one catch for just one yard. While he's seeing plenty of opportunities, Gordon is still in a battle with Keaton Mitchell and Justice Hill for the final roster spots in the backfield. Even though he's proven to have some gas left in the tank, Mitchell and Hill seem to be more versatile at the moment.
