Chargers RB Melvin Gordon could end holdout soon

Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon’s holdout could soon be coming to an end, though no final decisions have made when to report, per league sources. He had planned to return at some point in October, but could soon be moving up his reporting date.

Fantasy Impact: 

A Melvin Gordon return could happen sooner than we first thought. Austin Ekeler has proven to be more than capable in Gordon's absence, but he hasn't been used as a true early-down running back and Gordon would likely take back that work while Ekeler could stay heavily involved as a receiver, giving both plenty of fantasy relevancy.

Ian Rapoport reports that even if Gordon were to show up this week, he would not play against the Dolphins in Week 5, so your Ekeler and Jackson shares are safe against a weak Dolphins defense.
