Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Melvin Gordon III Note

Gordon lost a fumble in Week 1 against the Titans, but it was otherwise a great night for the veteran, who ran well and scored a touchdown. Phillip Lindsay's toe injury should keep him out of action for a bit, which will benefit Gordon going forward. His outlook seems far less cloudy now and he can be thought of as a solid RB2 as of now.

Phillip Lindsay Note

Lindsay is dealing with turf toe and is likely to miss a few games. Melvin Gordon looked like the superior back against the Titans in any event, but Lindsay should maintain his role on the short side of the platoon when he returns. Given the difficulties that turf toe presents, however, there's no reason to hold Lindsay on your roster if you're in a crunch.

Royce Freeman Note

Freeman should see an expanded role now with Phillip Lindsay sidelined with turf toe. But he saw little action even after Lindsay left the game in Week 1, so don't expect him to go back to close to a 50-50 split like he saw last year. Other than extremely deep leagues, there's little reason to concern yourself with Freeman even with his likely increase in usage.
