  • Gordon rushed for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries while catching two of four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 38-14 win over Cleveland. Gordon opened the scoring with a four-yard rushing touchdown, then added scores from 10 and 11 yards out in the third quarter. He's been a touchdown machine this season, with six on the ground and three more through the air. Gordon should be treated as an RB1 in all matchups, including the upcoming Week 7 home tilt against Tennessee.

  • Gordon carried the ball 15 times for 80 yards and a score during Sunday's 35-23 loss to the Rams. He also caught two of his four targets for four yards. Gordon was arguably the Chargers' most explosive player Sunday, ripping off multiple 20-plus yard runs on the afternoon which culminated in a season high in rushing yards. Despite the strong running performance, it was a bit odd to see Gordon targeted so infrequently in the passing game after the fourth-year running back averaged 10 targets through the first two weeks of the season. That should change next week when the Chargers take on the 49ers, who have allowed the third-most receptions (26) to the running back position through three weeks.

  • Gordon (neck) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. Gordon sustained an unspecified upper-body injury during the Chargers' 31-20 win over the Bills last Sunday, with Los Angeles deeming it a neck issue in their first practice report of Week 3. More important than the specificity of Gordon's injury is the fact that he was on the practice field at full capacity, putting him on track to suit up this weekend in a difficult matchup with the Rams.

  • Gordon carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards and caught nine of 13 targets for a career-high 102 yards in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Chiefs. Gordon wasn't able to get much going on the ground, and with the Chargers trailing in the second half, quarterback Philip Rivers used him on a plethora of checkdowns. His receiving numbers have improved in each of his first three years in the league, so it's quite possible we'll see even better production from Gordon in the passing game in 2018.

  • Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Ready for 2018
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gordon (personal) is good to go for the regular season, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports. Gordon was away from the team during preseason Week 3 to deal with a family matter and, as is customary for elite running backs, didn't take the field in the Chargers' exhibition finale. No matter, he'll be good for his typical workhorse role in 2018 after accounting for 21.4 touches per game a season ago.
