Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (neck) took full practice reps all week. No worries here.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Los Angeles Rams

Proceed cautiously with the Chargers offense this week, despite the fact that they lit up the Chiefs and Bills in the first two weeks of the season. The Rams defense is most certainly not the Chiefs or Bills. A low implied team total of 20.5 points is also cause for concern. The strong D-Line held David Johnson in check last week, and last year's aFPA versus RBs of 32nd is largely irrelevant because of the improvements in the offseason to this unit. Gordon is averaging less than 3.0 yards per carry, but his 15 receptions keep him on the RB1 radar for Week 3, despite the tough matchup.
