Fantasy Impact:

It's a must-win for the Chargers so Gordon will go today but likely isn't 100% with the ankle injury. Branden Oliver and Austin Ekeler could see a bump in production if the Bolts are going to try to limit Gordon in any way.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Oakland Raiders

The Chargers are fighting for a playoff spot, which means you can safely start your fantasy options for this team in Week 17. Melvin Gordon faces an Oakland defense ranked 12th in aFPA to RBs. Gordon's workload (20+ touches every week since the Chargers' bye) locks him in as an RB1 in the final week of the regular season.
