Bolts RB Melvin Gordon could see more catches

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The loss of tight end Hunter Henry to a torn ACL has led to questions about whether the Chargers will bring Antonio Gates back for another season to bolster their passing offense.

They have resisted such a move to this point and part of the reason may be their confidence in running back Melvin Gordon.

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon only caught 22 passes during his time at the University of Wisconsin, but had 74 in his first two NFL seasons before moving up to 58 catches last season in a progression that has offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt pointing to the running back as part of the solution to Henry’s absence, the story said. We already have Gordon ranked seventh in PPR formats, but he may have huge fantasy value if you can get him early in the second, as ADPs currently indicate.
