Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gordon recently hamstrung his own fantasy value by demanding a new contract and threatening to hold out as long as he needs to to get a new deal. This negotiating tactic has been compared to Le’Veon Bell’s holdout, but Gordon is under contract while Bell was not, and Gordon will need to report by Week 10 to get credit for the year. Gordon believes the value of his position is second only to that of a quarterback, and that he should be compensated as such. The timing of Gordon’s demands--after both free agency and the draft, when the Chargers could have shored up the position--has put the team in a tough spot. Through his first three seasons, Gordon averaged a measly 3.8 YPC yet he considers himself to be an elite back. (He did post 5.1 YPC last season.) The Chargers could wait it out, and go with Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson at the position until Gordon likely reports in Week 10. Or they could elect to work out a long-term deal with Gordon. The situation is murky because the team’s position is not yet known. Instead of being a solid first round pick, Gordon looks like a risky third or fourth rounder until his contract situation is resolved.

LAC RB Melvin Gordon - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 19 at New England Patriots

The Chargers go west to east for the second consecutive week to take on the Patriots in New England with a trip to the AFC Championship game on the line. The Bolts have the second-lowest implied team total of the eight remaining teams, however, at just 21.5 points. New England ranks 15th in aFPA to RBs but since returning from injury, Melvin Gordon's volume is down. He's still an RB1 this week, but we don't see him as a top-five PPR option.
