Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Totals 124 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (ankle) carried the ball 17 times for 93 yards and also caught six of his seven targets for 31 yards in the 30-10 shellacking of the Raiders on Sunday.

You couldn't tell Gordon was limited in practice all week with a sprained ankle, as the third-year running back posted his second highest yards-per-carry average (5.5) of 2017 in a dominating performance to close the season. While the 24-year-old missed out on averaging at least four yards-per-carry for a third consecutive season, Gordon did cross the 1,000-yard threshold for the first time in his career, and also set a career-high in receptions and receiving yards. The do-it-all running back appears to be entering his prime, and in an offense hellbent on featuring its running back both on the ground and through the air, Gordon's projected usage rate will once again have him slotted among the first handful of picks in fantasy drafts come the new campaign.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Will play Sunday vs. Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

After Gordon sprained his left ankle in the 14-7 win over the Jets in Week 16, it initially didn't appear promising that he would be able to make it back in time for the regular-season finale, but he received the green light after logging limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday. Though Gordon incurred no issues in pregame warmups, there's still some concern regarding how long he'll able to hold up Sunday due to the ankle injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. With that in mind, Branden Oliver, the team's only healthy backup running back, could be pressed into extended action if Gordon suffers a mid-game setback.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Raiders, a league source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Gordon is listed as questionable on the official injury report. Gordon appeared to be moving okay Friday while running routes at practice, so this report adds to the outlook that he will play. However, this report isn't his official status so fantasy owners will need to check his availability before Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Listed as questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

We'd expect Gordon to give it a go Sunday, with the Chargers still in the playoff hunt, but that may not be confirmed until about 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, upon the release of the team's Week 17 inactives. Per ESPN's Eric D. Williams,Gordon appeared to be moving okay Friday while running routes at practice, which supports the notion that the running back should be able to tough things out in Week 17.

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

The Chargers listed Gordon (ankle) as a limited practice participant Thursday.

It was thought that the running back would be listed as a non-participant, but evidently he got some work in Thursday. Assuming his ankle responds fine to the work he put in, Gordon would appear to be headed toward active status Sunday against the Raiders. More on his status no later than Friday, when the Chargers release their final Week 17 injury report.
