Gordon had a tremendous sophomore season after putting up a donut for rookie season touchdowns. With an improved offensive line, it only makes sense that he would be able to maintain his level of production. Granted, he wasn't the most efficient running back and Keenan Allen is coming back, but he is still expected to be among the most reliable RBs in terms of touches this season.

Melvin Gordon RULED OUT Week 17

San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon (hip/knee) is officially ruled out Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Despite practicing this week, Gordon will not play in the season finale Sunday against the Chiefs. He was motivated to play so he could attempt to gain three yards to reach 1,000 for the season. However, it was likely an organizational decision to hold him out Week 17. Ronnie Hillman is expected to draw the start in Gordon's absence.
