 Gordon was 6th among fantasy running backs, despite playing in only 12 games in 2018. He may miss that many games again with a contract dispute and the Chargers have allowed him to seek a trade. This situation looks like it could spill deep into the regular season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's tough to know how you should value Robinson as he was coming off a torn ACL in 2018, joining a new team with a new quarterback, and learning a new offense. With that being said, he'll likely be a bit more inconsistent than he was in Jacksonville due to the number of weapons the Bears have available. Between him, Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel, Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen, and David Montgomery, you may be stuck with some lackluster weeks, which is not something you want out of your WR2, meaning he's best-suited as a WR3 who'll give you some WR1 performances at timesHe's not going to win the rushing title or anything, and it's very unlikely that he finishes as a top-three fantasy running back, but he's about as safe as they come considering he's been a top-eight running back in each of the last three seasons. There were just four running backs who delivered RB2 or better performances in at least 90 percent of their games: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Gordon. His holdout is starting to get a bit concerning, as we have no solution in sight, making him a risky pick inside the top three rounds.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
 Fantasy PPG finishes at RB in half-PPR over past 3 seasons has been 3rd, 7th and 5th, respectively - the rub here is obviously a very real holdout threat that could wipe out half a season in '19 - if he signs before your draft (highly unlikely), vault him into the top 5 RBs
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 You have to play to pay off in fantasy football and (gulp) Gordon is pretty overrated. He's still talented with a big role if he plays, but this isn't a risk worth taking in my eyes. Of course, the value is worth it if he sliiiiiides.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 I continue to move him down. Starting to get worried he could sit out half the season. But of course a total guess at this point.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Robinson may have disappointed last year but let's remember that he was coming into a new offense with limited pre-season work due to his significant injury. He missed some time but still led the team in targets and may bounceback to his former WR1 self with a fully healthy season in this up-and-coming offense.Prior to the holdout becoming a realistic possibility, Gordon was locked into the top 6 picks. At this point, however, he is falling out of even the second round in most cases and that may further plummet if the holdout extends into the preseason. Even if he doesn't sign before your fantasy draft, you can't let him fall past your third round pick because there is just too much upside.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Robinson led the Bears in targets last year despite playing in just 13 games, and had a big playoff performance with 10 catches for 143 yards and a touchdown. Now, in his second year playing with Mitchell Trubisky in Matt Nagy's system and another year removed from his ACL tear, some growth should certainly be expected. Don't let last year's "disappointing" season allow you to let Robinson fall too far. He should be a relatively reliable starting wide receiver in all fantasy formats.There are little concerns about Gordon's ability when he's on the field, but his holdout currently shows no signs of ending. The Chargers continue to maintain that they are not going to budge from their current offer, and Gordon insists he won't take it. Gordon could conceivably hold out until Week 10, the point at which he will need to report or lose a year of service time. With the questions surrounding him, and after fantasy owners were burned by Le'Veon Bell's holdout last year, his draft price needs to fall to closer to that of an RB3 for now.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Robinson was disappointing last season to say the least, 55/754/4. Had a single game in 13 half ppr contests with over 14 fantasy points. Now he is being selected as a low end WR2 and that is too rich for my liking. He has not produced up to par for years now.Very risky pick right now with the holdout. Obviously would be a huge steal if he returns, but you have to take him in one of the first three rounds.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 I'm assuming a 4-game hold out here
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
If we forget his one big season from FOUR years ago, ARob has averaged 4 TDs in his other three healthy seasons. Last season, he had over 6 catches ONE time and scored a TD in only four games. He'll see consistent targets, making him a WR3, but not much more.What makes MelGo so lethal is his rushing TD upside and usage in the passing game. Never included in discussion of best pass-catching backs, MelGo has been racking up receptions for years. Last season, Chargers RBs combined for a receiving line of - 138 targets, 104 receptions, 1,029 yards, 7 TDs. That is gold. The only concern here is the holdout. If he's starting for the Chargers on Week 1, many people will be lucky they grabbed him at a discount.
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
 There is more risk in drafting Gordon than there is with Elliot. Gordon is on the last year of his contract, and the Chargers have two viable running backs they can turn to in his absence. The urgency for the Chargers front office isn't as great to get a deal done like it is in Dallas with Ezekiel Elliot. There are plenty of RB-needy teams that have the current and future cap space available to make a trade if that's the direction the Chargers decide to take.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Robinson is a very uninspiring pick this season. He's on a good offense, with a good QB and a good OC. The problem is all the talent around him. They have Cohen/Gabriel/Miller, who are all capable pass catchers, but Montgomery can also catch passes, Burton is a solid receiving threat, and Patterson will be used on designed plays. I have Robinson projected to see a 20% target market share...and I really can't increase it much from there. That sort of volume gives him the 44th highest projection among WR's. That's not going to cut it for me. I'll happily pass on him in the middle rounds of drafts.I do not believe Melvin Gordon will sit out the entire season. If he does, then he'll be right back in this same situation next year. He'll still be under contract with the Chargers, they will still have the leverage, and he'll just be one year older, with a lot less money. What we could see happen is Gordon hold out for half the season, and then return to finish the year. That would allow him to become a FA next summer and get a new contract. The latest reports suggest that the teams aren't close to making a deal, and I find it hard to believe a team would want to give up a lot in trading for him. If this situation hasn't been resolved by the time your draft rolls around, then I don't see how you could feel good about drafting him. He'll be a stud when he plays, but missing out on your first or second round pick for potentially half a season is a major blow. There are too many elite options available in the first two rounds to justify taking him that early while this situation is still unresolved.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
 While Melvin Gordon's health gives us cause for concern, there's no doubting his talent and production when he's on the field. Gordon gives you a safe floor week in and week out with his presence in the receiving game and this offense should only be better with Hunter Henry coming back into the fold. While Gordon's not in the tier of the guys above, such as Barkley, Zeke, CMC and Kamara, he's a solid RB1 option to lead your fantasy team to victory in 2019.
