Huddle Up: Gordon has posted just two 100-yard games this season, but he has scored a total of five rushing touchdowns and four receiving scores through 10 games. He remains a bona fide No. 1 fantasy tailback even with Austin Ekeler seeing a bigger role recently. The Chargers travel to meet the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.
Posted: 10/29/2017 5:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite entering the game with a foot injury, Gordon had his best rushing performance of the season. Even when he isn't efficient running the ball, his huge workload makes him one of the safest plays at his position.
Posted: 10/29/2017 9:00am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was limited during practice this week bur should receive most of the carries in the running game and could see some targets in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/29/2017 5:41am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he will be playing through pain and is coming off a lackluster showing in Week 7, he should still be considered an RB1 in all fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/28/2017 8:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon is an every-down back for the Chargers, so he should still see plenty of work despite the foot injury. He is no worse than a RB2 against a New England defense that just lost its best linebacker to an injury.
Posted: 10/27/2017 3:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon should be able to play this week against the New England Patriots, but owners will need to check the inactive list for an official status. He is coming off a disappointing Week 7 performance but should have a better matchup this week. Gordon can be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues.
Posted: 10/26/2017 3:41pm ET
Huddle Up: It's a little concerning that Gordon has been limited in each practice so far, but given his workload as of late -- 63 carries in the last three games alone, not to mention 16 catches over that span as well -- it's understandable if the team is just managing his health. While he's coming off one of his worst outings of the season, Gordon can still be treated as an RB1 for this week's matchup in New England against a suspect defense.
Posted: 10/25/2017 3:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon should be able to play in Week 8, but owners can check on his status later in the week. He was held to just 38 yards last week but has a good chance to have a better game this week against the New England Patriots. Owners in all leagues can consider Gordon as a No. 2 running back.
Posted: 10/22/2017 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon really struggled against a good Denver defense. There will obviously be much better days. He'll look to bounce back in Week 8 on the road against the Patriots and he remains a solid RB1 in all fantasy leagues despite this egg laying.
Posted: 10/22/2017 5:35am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Despite the difficulty of today's matchup, he should be viewed as a RB1 in all fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/19/2017 3:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Even though he's been limited, the fact that he's been able to practice both days indicates there should be no issue concerning him suiting up on Sunday. It's a tough matchup but obviously, Gordon needs to be started everywhere. Plus, Denver might not be as intimidating as they usually are after allowing a 100-yard effort to the far inferior Orleans Darkwa last Sunday night, providing hope Gordon can carve out a nice performance for his owners.
Posted: 10/18/2017 4:03pm ET
Huddle Up: You're not going to bench Gordon if he's active, but the matchup is worrisome versus the Denver Broncos, even after they just yielded over 100 yards to Orleans Darkwa. Even so, start Gordon as long as he's playing. He is averaging 156.5 total yards, 7.5 catches and two touchdowns over his last two contests.
Posted: 10/15/2017 8:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon continues to handle a massive workload, making him a RB1 against any opponent.
Posted: 10/8/2017 5:00pm ET
Huddle Up: It was Gordon's first 100-yard game of the season, and he has managed five total touchdowns (two rushing, three receiving) through five games. He remains a solid RB1 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders on the road.
Posted: 10/6/2017 2:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with the knee injury for several weeks but should receive his normal workload this week. He was limited to 22 yards last week but does have two rushing touchdowns on the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues this week.
Posted: 10/5/2017 5:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon will be out there on Sunday, and he should be for all of his fantasy owners as well. There figures to be a healthy amount of scoring in the Chargers' Week 5 road matchup with the Giants, and as usual, Gordon should play a prominent role in making that come to fruition. He's a legit RB1.
Posted: 10/4/2017 5:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon has been a bit inconsistent so far this season and rushed for only 22 yards in Week 4. Gordon could be a No. 2 fantasy option this week because he will be facing a New York Giants defense that has struggled at times against the run this season.
Posted: 10/4/2017 9:12am ET
Huddle Up: It's hard to blame Gordon when he was coming off his most efficient outing of the season in Week 3, but the offensive line is struggling again to create holes for him to run through on a regular basis. He'll get his chance to pick up the pace a bit over the next two weeks, however, as the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders are among two of the top 10 poorest defenses in the league when it comes to giving up rushing yards to the running back position. Gordon's scoring upside keeps him in the RB1 conversation.
Posted: 10/1/2017 7:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was battling a knee injury entering the game, which may have contributed to the poor outing. He did receive 10 of the team's 13 carries, but he has struggled with efficiency all year. Things won't be any easier with the New York Giants looming in Week 5.
Posted: 10/1/2017 5:45am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 28, and a full practice participant Friday, Sept. 29, and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to receive his normal workload and should be viewed as a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 9/29/2017 12:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon is expected to play against the Philadelphia Eagles and should receive his normal workload. He will be facing a tough Eagles run defense but should still be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/28/2017 3:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon will be able to play this week and should receive his normal workload. He is coming off a solid Week 3 game and has scored a touchdown in each of the last two games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/28/2017 11:41am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon probably will be limited during practice for the rest of the week but will see his normal workload against the Philadelphia Eagles. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/27/2017 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon likely will be limited during practice this week because of his knee soreness but should be in uniform for Week 4. He is coming off a solid Week 3 performance and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/26/2017 9:08am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon was limited to two carries in the second half in Week 3 as the Chargers decided to play it safe with him. The third-year back ran for a season-high 78 yards and a touchdown in the first half alone, so he was doing his part to help the Chargers and fantasy owners win even as Philip Rivers was throwing three interceptions. Gordon should be considered a strong RB1 again this week, even against the Eagles' strong front seven.
Posted: 9/25/2017 1:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon failed to catch a ball last weekend for the first time this season, but he scampered for 79 yards and a touchdown on the ground even with the knee malady. He should still be viewed as an RB1 even in a tougher matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
Posted: 9/24/2017 6:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon left the game in the first half due to a knee injury, staying in the locker room at halftime to receive further treatment. He was able to return in the fourth quarter and finish the game. It's a good sign for fantasy owners that he was able to return. He'll meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 barring any setbacks.
Posted: 9/24/2017 3:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon jogged back onto the sidelines in the third quarter and he is wearing his helmet, although Branden Oliver remains in the game. Gordon had a touchdown earlier for his fantasy owners, and it appears he'll be able to return soon. Officially he is still questionable to return.
Posted: 9/22/2017 6:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon hasn't had much running room this year, but his work in the passing game and lack of competition for snaps has allowed him to remain an effective fantasy option. As long as he suits up, he should be in your lineup despite the tough matchup.
Posted: 9/22/2017 1:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon should have a good chance to play, but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will be in uniform. Gordon would be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense but can still be a starting fantasy option if he plays.
Posted: 9/21/2017 4:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Gordon is in any danger of missing the Week 3 game. He has been limited to only 67 yards over the first two games and will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense this week but could still be a starting fantasy option.
Posted: 9/17/2017 6:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon's production on the ground was inefficient, even by his standards, but his heavy workload allowed him to finish with a decent stat line. He should continue to see enough touches to flirt with RB1 production against Kansas City in Week 3.
Posted: 9/12/2017 4:00am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon's longest run was 21 yards, but he didn't find the end zone. Granted, this was Denver's defense, and he will face some rough tests in the AFC West. In the long run, 54 yards against Denver doesn't rank as bad, so imagine what he will do against weaker run opponents. Gordon is a safe RB1 bet.
Posted: 8/20/2017 8:14pm ET
Huddle Up: None of the running backs who saw time Sunday managed more than 2.1 yards per carry, and Gordon's status as the lead back was never in question anyway. Efficient or not, the promise of a huge workload makes Gordon one of the safest RB1 options.
Posted: 7/22/2017 10:11am ET
Huddle Up: There are metrics that suggest Gordon is an inefficient runner, and the fact he has yet to crack four yards per carry for a season yet would seem to support that. A more likely explanation is the third-year back simply has been held back behind a poor offensive line. The Chargers dramatically upgraded their front five in the offseason, so 2017 should reveal whether or not Gordon is an elite runner. He's a solid mid-first round fantasy pick with the potential to be fantasy's top running back.
Posted: 2/16/2017 4:20pm ET
Huddle Up: There's no doubt Gordon came into his own in his sophomore season last year. A former professional running back as head coach should help him even more. If a healthy Danny Woodhead is re-signed then expect Gordon's receiving numbers to dip some, but he's still an RB1 consideration as the Chargers' primary back.
Posted: 1/30/2017 5:14am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon rushed for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns, and he caught 41 balls for 419 yards and two more scores in 13 games. He only rushed for 3.9 yards per carry, so there is room to grow. He'll be a high-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.
Posted: 1/19/2017 11:51am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon rushed for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016 and likely will receive most of the carries next season if he is healthy. Owners could see some improvement from Gordon under his new head coach and should consider him a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in fantasy drafts.
Posted: 12/30/2016 1:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Even though Gordon was sidelined the past two weeks, it looked like he would be able to return in the season finale, especially after getting in two limited practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, but alas, that is not the case. Unfortunately for the second-year running back, he'll finish the season three yards short of his first career 1,000-yard campaign. With him out, Ronnie Hillman could be looking at a big workload.
Posted: 12/29/2016 3:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon's availability for this week is looking more promising, but he's not guaranteed a full workload. The risk is great if Gordon is active, however. He's no more than a flex option in a pointless game for the Chargers.
Posted: 12/29/2016 11:49am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon appears to have a chance to play in Week 17, but owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He probably would be part of a committee at running back if he plays but could still be a flex option in most leagues.
Posted: 12/28/2016 3:45pm ET
Huddle Up: It's looking more optimistic that Gordon will play, but how much if he does? He has missed the last two contests and could be a little rusty. It might be better to start him as a low-end RB2 or flex as opposed to an RB1, especially in a tougher matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Posted: 12/28/2016 11:52am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 17, so owners will need to check the inactive lists before deciding on their lineup. He probably would receive limited work if he is active and may not be more than a flex option in leagues.
Posted: 12/27/2016 2:58pm ET
Huddle Up: It sounds like Gordon is getting much closer to being able to return to action after sitting out the last two weeks. The 2015 first-round pick is three yards shy of his first career 1,000-yard campaign, so that may give him extra incentive to play in the season finale. If he does suit up, he'll be worth plugging in as an RB2, as he should maintain a sizable workload in San Diego's decimated backfield.
Posted: 12/27/2016 1:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Gordon could sit out the last game of the season and prepare for a full recovery this offseason. San Diego's backfield should be his next year, especially if Danny Woodhead is not re-signed. If Gordon is at full health before next season, he should be drafted as an RB1. As for this week, Ronnie Hillman is a desperation start in a meaningless game if Gordon is sidelined.
Posted: 12/26/2016 2:19pm ET
Huddle Up: One would think Gordon would sit the final game of the season since the Chargers have nothing to play for. With Kenneth Farrow also hurting, Ronnie Hillman could be the Chargers' main option in the backfield this week. He'll be a top waiver wire add if Gordon doesn't play.
Posted: 12/23/2016 12:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Tough break for Gordon owners, as this is basically the matchup you want for your fantasy running back going into the finals. Instead, those potentially salivating numbers will be up for grabs with Kenneth Farrow, who will be making his second consecutive start in the San Diego backfield. Although he disappointed last week, he's still worth RB2 consideration, as he'll probably still see a sizable workload against one of the worst football teams in history.
Posted: 12/22/2016 11:32am ET
Huddle Up: Gordon probably will be sidelined for another game, so owners should look for other options to use in their lineups. Kenneth Farrow and Ronnie Hillman would both receive carries in Week 16 if Gordon is out but are not more than flex options in most leagues.
Posted: 12/21/2016 11:26am ET
Huddle Up: It is not known if Gordon will be able to play in Week 16, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He may be limited if he is active but could still be a flex option. Kenneth Farrow and Ronnie Hillman probably would share work again if Gordon sits, but neither player would be more than flex option in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/20/2016 12:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if Gordon ends up playing this week, he could very well be limited after missing last week's contest. The matchup against the Cleveland Browns is tempting, but use caution. There are probably less risky options on championship squads.
