Melvin Gordon Plans To Report This Year

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon doesn't think he'll be traded and will continue to hold out to "protect himself," but he will report in 2019, according to a source. "This is not a Le'Veon Bell situation," the source said. "He still wants to be a Charger. But he's got to protect himself." Gordon's fifth-year option is set to pay him $5.605 million this year. It looks like Gordon will sit out until midseason in order to accrue an NFL season toward free agency. The Chargers put up 435 yards of offense in a Week 1 overtime win against the Colts, with Austin Ekeler rushing 12 times for 58 yards and a touchdown and also catching six passes for 96 more yards and two scores. Ekeler remains locked in as an RB1 as long as Gordon remains away, especially with tight end Hunter Henry (knee) injured. Gordon needs to be stashed away in all leagues.

Melvin Gordon Will Report In 6-8 Weeks

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, who missed all of training camp and the preseason while holding out for a new contract, plans to report in the window that spans from Week 6 through Week 8, according to sources. He must report by Week 10 to have the 2019 season count toward free agency next year. If Gordon isn't franchise-tagged, he'd be one of the top free agents in 2020. It's further bad news for Gordon's fantasy stock, but he must remain stashed on all benches. Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson are set to share the backfield workload in Gordon's absence, with Ekeler having more fantasy appeal. Ekeler will be an RB2 in Week 1 against the Colts.

Eagles Make Offer For Melvin Gordon

The Philadelphia Eagles offered running back Jordan Howard and a swap of mid-round picks in exchange for Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, and the Chargers said no. The Bolts would've also had to eat salary in the swap. Gordon is set to miss at least Week 1 with no end in sight of his contract holdout. He has RB1 potential when he's on the field, so he should be stashed in all leagues while the two sides try to get closer on an extension. Until then, expect Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson to split the backfield work almost evenly, beginning in Week 1 against the Colts. Ekeler is the better fantasy bet and profiles as an RB3/flex in the season opener.
