Draft note
by John Paulsen
Apparently the Broncos aren't happy with Royce Freeman and want to instead utilize Gordon in tandem with Phillip Lindsay. Freeman saw 175 touches last year and I'd expect Gordon to surpass that number if he plays a full season. As a result, Lindsay is unlikely to approach the 259 touches that he saw last season. Gordon looks like he'll be a fantasy RB2 with Lindsay more of a fantasy RB3 in a reduced role.

LAC RB Melvin Gordon - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
In Week 16, Melvin Gordon out-snapped Austin Ekeler 37 to 33 and out-touched Ekeler 15 to 9. Gordon had nine rushing attempts for 15 yards and two touchdowns, six receptions for 32 yards, and was the half PPR RB8. Gordon only had 47 scrimmage yards but was able to finish as an RB1 thanks to two touchdowns.

The Chargers have been out of the playoff picture for quite some time. However, at the time of writing this, the Chargers are likely to play their starters because this could be Rivers’ last game as a Charger.

The blueprint to beating Kansas City is attacking them on the ground. Kansas City is the eleventh worst defense against running backs but the third-best defense against wide receivers, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Gordon ranked as fringe half PPR RB1.
