Melvin Gordon held in check by Steelers

Melvin Gordon rushed eight times for 18 yards and had three catches for 30 yards in the Chargers’ 24-17 loss to the Steelers Sunday. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon failed to get anything going in his second game back from his holdout. The big games will come and he needs to stay in fantasy lineups.

Melvin Gordon on tap for more work Week 6

Melvin Gordon will be utilized more Sunday night against the Steelers, per Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn.

Fantasy Impact

In Week 5, Gordon managed just 2.6 YPC on his 12 rushes while hauling in four of six passes for seven yards. The going should be easier this Sunday versus a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed 125.8 rushing yards per game this season. Gordon is a high-end RB2 for Sunday's Week 6 matchup against the Steelers.

Melvin Gordon flops in return to lineup versus Broncos

Melvin Gordon rushed 12 times for 31 yards in the Chargers' 20-17 loss to the Broncos Sunday. He added four receptions for seven yards on six targets.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon saw 16 touches in his return to the lineup Sunday, but couldn't do much with them against Denver. Some of this was rust and some was an inspired effort by the Denver D/ST. Gordon will be an RB1 going forward.

Melvin Gordon will 'definitely' be part of Sunday's game plan

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn says that Melvin Gordon will "definitely" be part of the Chargers' game plan versus the Broncos this week.

Fantasy Impact

Lynn even said that Gordon might start the game. It makes sense for the Chargers to use Gordon now that he's with the team, but Austin Ekeler is absolutely going to be involved a lot as well. Denver just got gashed by Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville run game in Week 4, which means both Gordon and Ekeler are usable in fantasy for Week 5.

Melvin Gordon logs no playing time in return versus Miami

Melvin Gordon was active but did not see a carry or target in the Chargers' 30-10 win over the Dolphins Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Gordon was active but did not play Sunday. He will share touches will Austin Ekeler going forward and will be more of a flex option as he works back form his holdout.
