10. Melvin Gordon, RB, Ravens

Melvin Gordon was one of the Denver Broncos' only consistent sources of offense from 2020-21, but he was also a consistent source of fumbling the football.

Over three seasons in Denver, Gordon fumbled the ball an absolutely disgusting 12 times. That seems impossible for a former first-round pick and big-moeny player who is paid to play the running back position, but it happeend. And it cost the Denver Broncos a wide variety of games.

It should come as no surprise that Gordon was limited in his opportunities as a member of the Baltimore Ravens in 2023, playing in just four games and receiving just 29 total touches. And it came as no surprise to members of Broncos Country when Gordon fumbled the football in the Ravens' regular season finale, in which he received seven touches, his second-most of the season.

And it doesn't look like we're going to see much of Gordon at all in the postseason for the Ravens, who added veteran Dalvin Cook to their practice squad recently. Thankfully for the Ravens, that fumble by Gordon didn't end up costing Baltimore any when it comes to the postseason, but it did help allow the Steelers to get in.


Is that something that could come back to bite the Ravens? We'll have to wait to find out.
