Melvin Gordon passes early tests at camp

USA Today - [Full Article]

Running back Melvin Gordon was tested — and Chargers coach Mike McCoy was smiling.

"The defense did a nice job a couple of times there where he had to do something." McCoy said.

Gordon, the Chargers' top pick from Wisconsin, often broke free for yardage Saturday in the training camp practice. It was the first day the Chargers were in pads and Gordon didn't disappoint.

"He did a nice job," McCoy said.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Chargers, who finished 30th in rushing last year, traded up two draft spots to snag Gordon. He led Football Bowl Subdivision teams in rushing last year with 2,587 yards, the second-highest in FBS history. Gordon is ranked 17th on our list, but has an ADP of the third round so owners are trying to snag him up because of his potential in the Chargers run-first offense.
