Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon racked up 165 yards on 23 total touches in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders. He solidified an elite fantasy outing with a 66-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. In a league stacked to the gills with excellent production from the running back position, Gordon finds himself firmly entrenched among the best in the game. He has surpassed 100 all-purpose yards in six of his eight games, and has scored at least one touchdown in every game since Week 1 (excluding his Week 7 injury absence). Gordon is as much of a set-and-forget lineup staple as there is at the running back position.
Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon will be looking to build from his impressive performance against the Seattle Seahawks in a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders are one of the worst teams in defending against the position, and with the form that Gordon has had so far this season, he is one of the best plays for fantasy owners this week.
Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was questionable coming into the game, but there was nothing questionable about his performance in the team's eight-point win over the Seahawks. Gordon was phenomenal in Sunday's game, racking up 113 yards on just 16 carries, averaging over seven YPC. He also found the end zone once again, raising his season total to seven rushing touchdowns (and 10 all-purpose TDs). Gordon is clearly one of the most valuable players in fantasy at this point, and he'll likely get to pad those stats next week when he gets a tasty matchup against the shell of the Raiders.
