Brandon Oliver gained nine yards on eight carries against the Jets on Sunday.
With Austin Ekeler playing with a broken hand, Oliver was the prime backup, and got a decent amount of work with Melvin Gordon needing an occasional breather and suffering what appears to be a minor ankle injury. He'll be a relevant player in all formats next week against Oakland if Gordon is forced to miss the game. Otherwise, don't bother with him.
