Fantasy Impact:

Gordon is reportedly keeping in football shape and ready to rejoin the Chargers at any point, but the two sides do not appear to be closing in on a deal. He is looking to be paid as one of the top-three contracts at his position, which is around $13 million per season and includes $20 million in guarantees. Gordon has performed at a high-level, but the Chargers seem to not be giving into his demands. The Chargers have expressed confidence in backups Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson to carry the load in his absence.
