Melvin Gordon III Promoted To Active Roster

Saturday, September 16, 9:14 PM

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.

Kenneth Walker III Scores Twice Against Detroit

Monday, September 18, 6:24 AM

Kenneth Walker III led the Seattle Seahawks running back room in touches once again, albeit without his trademark efficiency. Walker carried the ball 17 times for 43 yards and caught one pass for another 11 yards in Seattle's Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions. His 2.5 yards per carry on Sunday pales in comparison to the 4.6 YPC he posted in his rookie season last year, but two of his rushing attempts resulted in a touchdown. Seattle's other active running backs, Zach Charbonnet and DeeJay Dallas, combined for just five carries. Walker seems to have a firm grip on his place at the top of the Seahawks' depth chart. He will face the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.
