Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While fantasy managers have been frustrated that Gordon and Javonte Williams remain locked up in a 50/50 split, Gordon still has been a very valuable fantasy asset. He's finished inside the top-30 RBs on the week in each of his previous five games and he has two top-10 performances during that stretch. Now, the Broncos get to take on the defense that is allowing the most rushing yards per game with 119.9. The Chargers are allowing an average of 21.0 fantasy points per contest and we could see Denver completely commit to the run game in this one, which would mean good things for Gordon. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 with upside this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chargers are just 18th against fantasy backs over the last 2 weeks, making Gordon III a low-end RB2 to high-end flex option coming off his bye week.
