Chargers Beat: Melvin Gordon showing growth

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Melvin Gordon ran far better than shown by his rushing total of 14 carries for 60 yards (4.3).

The rookie's performance was, to my eyes, tied for his best this season, matching the Week 2 showing versus the Cincinnati Bengals. He made the first man miss several times. More so than ever, it looked like he has moved on from the fumbles that set him back in October.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story went on to say Gordon scraped up gains out of near-empty bowls. The Jaguars were quick to read and attack handoffs. Gordon was able to counter. He took the fight to defenders in his own backfield or at the line. The author still thinks Gordon can be a difference maker after the team spent three draft picks on him.
