Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 The Chargers aren't playing for much, but Gordon has a great matchup making him a fringe RB1.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The Panthers continue to be the worst against RBs, giving up 850 rushing yards to RBs over the past five weeks. Kamara is a RB1 this week, with the Saints competing for a first-round bye still.
