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 runs for 14 yards in preseason opener

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon carried the ball six times for 14 yards in the team's loss to the Seahawks Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

Chargers new head coach Anthony Lynn wants to lean on the running game this season and create a more balanced offensive attack, which should mean plenty of work for Gordon. Fantasy coaches should feel comfortable drafting him later in the first round in fantasy drafts.
