Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Totals 165 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon rushed 18 times for 93 yards and caught five of six targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders.

Gordon caught a pass in the flat, broke a tackle, and took it 66 yards to the house to give the Chargers a two-touchdown lead early in the second half. He fell just seven yards short of his third straight 100-yard rushing game but more than made up for it with his second-best receiving game of the year. The 25-year-old has 100 yards or a touchdown in all seven games he's played in this season and will look to keep the streak going at home Week 11 against Denver.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Rushes for 100 yards, touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon carried the ball 16 times for 113 yards and a touchdown, and also caught one of his four targets for 10 yards in the 25-17 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Gordon didn't appear to be fazed by a hamstring injury that caused him to miss a Week 7 contest in London against the Titans, bursting for three carries of 20 yards or more throughout Sunday's game. It's a bit surprising to see Gordon only record one reception given he had caught at least two passes in every other game this season, but that could be attributed to the team's reliance on intermediate crossing routes which seemed to be open all afternoon. Easily one of the top fantasy options on a weekly basis, Gordon should have another strong outing against the Raiders next week.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Though Gordon's hamstring injury sidelined him for the Week 7 win over the Titans in London, he appears to be in sound health coming off a bye week. While Gordon retained a questionable tag heading into the weekend, there was never much concern about his status after he practiced in limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday before upgrading to full participation Friday. It's thus expected that he'll enjoy a normal workload Sunday, which translated to an average of 15.1 carries and five receptions through his first six outings.

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

Gordon (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, will be available to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After sitting out the Chargers' last game against the Titans in Week 7, Gordon returned from the team's bye week by logging limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. He upgraded to full participation Friday and apparently came out of the session without any setbacks, so he should be ready to handle a full workload in Week 9. Confirmation on Gordon's status won't come until the Chargers release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before the 4:05 p.m. EDT kickoff, but fantasy owners can probably keep him in lineups with confidence. He'll square off against the Seahawks' 17th-ranked run defense, which has surrendered 108.3 yards per game.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Gets questionable tag for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers are listing Gordon (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.

Coming out of the Chargers' Week 8 bye, Gordon turned in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday before advancing to full participation Friday. That seemingly bodes well for his chances of playing this weekend, though the Chargers may have affixed the questionable tag to Gordon after a late setback with the hamstring resulted in him being scratched ahead of their Week 7 game against the Titans in London. Assuming Gordon steers clear of any last-second problems with his hamstring this time around, he should be ready to handle his usual three-down workload once Sunday arrives. Gordon's return would result in a lighter role for Austin Ekeler, who earned the starting assignment in the game Gordon missed.
