Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Suffers upper body injury in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon suffered an upper body injury early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-20 win over the Bills. according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com. He finished the contest with 64 total yards and three touchdowns.

Coach Anthony Lynn dismissed the notion that his star running back might have suffered a serious injury, suggesting Gordon was simply sore and fatigued. The fourth-year player left Sunday's game at the 11:56 mark in the fourth quarter and did not return, but by that point the Chargers already held a comfortable lead over their opposition. Should Gordon play next week, he'll face a surging Rams squad that has outscored opponents by 67-13 tally through the first two weeks of the season.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Posts first 100-yard receiving game of his career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Misses preseason game for personal matters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (personal) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

Gordon didn't play in order to tend to a family matter, leaving Austin Ekeler to work as the Chargers' featured running back. Gordon was the one of the field for 25 of the team's 29 first-team snaps during the first two preseason games, though -- including four-of-five snaps on third down -- so look for him to instantly reassume workhorse responsibilities when the games start to matter.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Registers first touchdown in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon carried the ball 10 times for 35 yards, caught both of his targets for 18 yards and also scored a touchdown in the Chargers' 24-14 preseason win over the Seahawks on Saturday.

Gordon played just three series, but he looked explosive in his limited touches bursting for a 14-yard carry that led to a two-yard touchdown three plays later. The 25-year-old remains an integral part of what figures to be a dynamic Chargers offense and has drawn rave reviews throughout training camp for his improved route running. As a result, Gordon should be one of the cornerstones of your fantasy team and is projected to be a late first-round, early second-round pick in almost any format.
