Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is 'unlikely to return' to the club in 2020, in the opinion of ESPN's Eric D. Williams. Gordon is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Huddle Up: Gordon's ill-fated holdout doubtless cost him some money, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of market he has in free agency. In the right spot, the Wisconsin product could still be an RB1 entering next season.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed nine times for 15 yards and two touchdowns and caught six of his seven targets for 32 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 16.
Huddle Up: His yardage totals have been down in recent weeks, but Gordon has seven rushing touchdowns in the last eight games and has logged at least a dozen touches in seven straight contests. The volume makes him a RB2 candidate.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon carried the ball seven times for 28 yards but lost two fumbles against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. He also caught five passes for 36 yards.
Huddle Up: On the heels of some encouraging performances, Gordon was careless with the ball Sunday as part of one of the worst efforts from an NFL team in 2019 as the Chargers turned the ball over seven times. They welcome the free-falling Raiders next Sunday, so perhaps that'll get Gordon and the rest of the offense back on track.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 29 yards in a 45-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Austin Ekeler's production has cut into Gordon's numbers just a bit, but he continues to see a heavy workload and is no worse than a high-floor RB2 option.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon carried the ball 20 times for 99 yards against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Dec. 1. Gordon added a pair of receptions for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Gordon has now topped 100 yards from scrimmage in three of his last four games, scoring three times during that span. While Jacksonville performed much better against the run on Sunday, they've been mostly awful in recent weeks, meaning Gordon could be in for a big day in Week 14.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon carried the ball 22 times for 108 yards and a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9. Gordon also had a 25-yard reception.
Huddle Up: After running 20 times on Sunday, Gordon turned around and toted the rock another 22 times tonight, continuing what appears to be a newfound commitment to the running game. With his score tonight, the Wisconsin product now has five TDs in his last four games and is looking at another attractive matchup in Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 20 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns and caught three passes for 29 yards in a 26-11 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Gordon finally had a big performance, and fantasy owners can only hope it is a sign of things to come. A Week 10 matchup with Oakland should be a golden opportunity for Gordon to keep the momentum going.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed eight times for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears and he added two catches for three years on three targets.
Huddle Up: Gordon found the yardage hard to come by against the Bears rush defense which was solid. There just wasn't a lot of open real estate in this one. He'll look for more production at home against the Packers in Week 9.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is expected to receive trade interest from other teams leading up to the trade deadline, but the Chargers would ask for a lot in return.
Huddle Up: Gordon has struggled since ending his holdout and has posted only 81 yards in three games. Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days to see if Gordon is moved. He likely will be more productive as the season goes on and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 16 times for 32 yards and added a one-yard touchdown catch in a 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. He also fumbled twice, losing one.
Huddle Up: Gordon has struggled with efficiency behind a banged-up offensive line since ending his holdout, and running room could be tough to come by again next week against the Chicago Bears. He is more of a flex play at this point.
