Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 7. Gordon should be fine to face the Broncos, though owners should keep tabs on his status over the weekend. The Chargers play late on Sunday.

Scouting Report

Week 7 vs. Denver Broncos

The Broncos are a tough matchup for Gordon this week, as Denver is third in our aFPA vs. RB rankings, but Gordon's volume each week keeps him in the RB1 conversation. In Week 1 against the Broncos, for example, Gordon had 23 touches for 79 yards and a touchdown. Gordon is averaging 20 touches per game, and that's the kind of touch count you can rely on, regardless of the matchup. Start him.
