Gordon may not play so be sure to monitor his injury status. If he does go, he is a sure-fire start, as the Chargers must win for a chance at the playoffs, and even a banged up Melvin Gordon is sure to make use of another 20+ touches.Bell might play this weekend, but even if he does, it will more than likely be short-lived, as the Patriots are expected to wrap up homefield advantage against the Jets. As crazy as it sounds, you should plan on not using Bell this weekend.

 Bell had only 47 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played in Week 1, but that was in Week 1 with Bell having missed the entire preseason. Bell should be an elite RB1 this week.
