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, vault him into the top 5 RBsA lot of Antonio Brown to his game - lightning quick, can work the whole field, great route runner and explosive after the catch - health and random wallflower games have been his only bugaboos
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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. He doesn't have much to lose by holding out but if the Chargers realize their window to win is closing, chances are that he'll be signed well before your fantasy draft.Diggs still hasn't become that top-end receiver we once assumed he would become but he has steadily improved each season. If Kirk Cousins' TD-rate improves to even league-average, Diggs may make that jump into the top 10 fantasy wideouts this time around.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gordon was 6th among fantasy running backs, despite playing in only 12 games in 2018. He should continue being a bell cow running back on a great offense, but his contract holdout is becoming concerning.Diggs had 102 receptions for 1,021 yards and 9 touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR2 that has a ton of upside in this offense as their most talented red zone wide receiver.
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
I'm assuming a 4-game hold out here 
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 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
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. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
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. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He'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 second-round pick at this point.It's been quite the career arc for Diggs, who has gone from the WR46 his rookie year, to the WR30, WR19, and then WR10 in 2018 while collecting a career-high 150 targets. That's important, as it shows his new quarterback Kirk Cousins trusts him. With Adam Thielen around, it'll be tough for him to break into the top-five, but Diggs should be considered a relatively safe low-end WR1 in fantasy circles who would have top-five upside should something happen to Thielen
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
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.I love targeting Diggs in the late 3rd/early 4th round. He's a bit too risky to rely on as your top guy each week, but at his ADP, he won't need to. You can make him your WR1 to go with 3 stud RB's, or maybe an upside WR2 to go with 2 elite running backs. However you choose to start your draft, Diggs is an upside pick. Diggs posted over 100 receptions in his first season with Cousins, commanding a nearly 30% share of the teams air yards. He's an elite WR in the prime of his career, on an offense that has a consolidated target market share. If he can get past the lower body injuries, then he's got all the upside in the world.
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.
