Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Plans to stay with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is confident he will reach a long-term agreement with the Chargers, but first he wants to see the contract Le'Veon Bell ends up signing, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Scheduled to make $5.6 million in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, Gordon helped his own cause this past season despite missing four games, producing career-high marks for yards per carry (5.1), yards per target (7.4) and touchdowns (14). His struggles in terms of YPC had been a major point of contention, with the 2015 first-round pick finishing below 4.0 in each of his previous three NFL seasons. In addition to the newfound efficiency, Gordon saw his value rise when backup Austin Ekeler managed just 3.2 YPC and 3.8 YPT in three starts. Gordon now has a much stronger argument to be paid as an elite running back, and he may even get his desired contract before he celebrates his 26th birthday in mid-April.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Quiet in playoff exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon rushed nine times for 15 yards and a touchdown while catching one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 41-28 Divisional Round loss to New England.

While Gordon didn't have an injury designation heading into this contest, it's fair to wonder whether the perpetually banged-up running back was truly healthy considering he's battled recent injuries in both knees. The Chargers were forced to largely abandon the run after facing a 35-7 halftime deficit, but Gordon managed to find the end zone from one yard out late in the third quarter. Los Angeles picked up the fifth-year option on Gordon's rookie contract prior to this season, so he'll be back with the team for the 2019 campaign before potentially hitting free agency.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) practiced in full Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game at New England, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.

Gordon picked up a minor injury to his left knee during the Chargers' wild-card win in Baltimore but built up his practice reps from none Wednesday to all of them Friday, clearing him to suit up for this weekend's showdown. Considering he's been banged-up for a good portion of the season, he likely is in line for a similar workload from the past three games -- 15.3 touches per game -- while working in a timeshare with Austin Ekeler.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

Gordon sat out Wednesday's practice, but his return to the field Thursday puts him on the right track in advance of Sunday's playoff game against the Patriots. We'll circle back Friday to see if the Chargers list their top running back as questionable for the contest or remove Gordon altogether from the team's final injury report of the week.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

After churning out 43 yards from scrimmage and one TD on 18 touches in the Chargers' wild-card win at Baltimore, Gordon was diagnosed with a "little knee sprain," according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. There isn't much worry about Gordon's availability for Sunday's visit to New England, but he'll take a seat to kick off this week of prep, more as a rest day than anything, per Lynn. The Chargers again seem poised to split backfield work between the banged-up Gordon and Austin Ekeler, who himself earned 15 touches this past weekend.
