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.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed eight times for 18 yards during the team's Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gordon also caught three passes for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: Gordon's return has not reinvigorated the Chargers' offense, and you have to wonder how much better things are going to get with so many key injuries to the offensive line. A Week 7 showdown with the Titans certainly doesn't look very appealing at this stage.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon is expected to see more snaps in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Gordon managed just 38 total yards on 16 touches in his season debut in Week 5, but with another week to shake off the rust and the potential for a bigger workload, he could creep into RB2 territory.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon rushed 12 times for 31 yards and caught four passes for seven yards in a 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Gordon struggled with efficiency in his season debut, but the fact that he saw 16 touches out of the gate is a good indicator that he will quickly resume his heavy workload. He's a solid bet for RB2 numbers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
