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.

Melvin Gordon reportedly to demand trade unless he receives a new contract

Running back Melvin Gordon has informed the Chargers that unless he receives a new contract, he will not report to training camp and he will demand a trade, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

While it was known that Gordon was looking for a new contract, this is the first report of him potentially sitting out training camp and demanding a trade. He currently has a $5.6 million salary in 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and understandably wants a raise and some long-term security. If Gordon misses any time, Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson could see opportunities in the Los Angeles backfield.
