Dec. 10, 2017 6:35 PM PT7:35 PM MT8:35 PM CT9:35 PM ET2:35 GMT10:35 7:35 PM MST9:35 PM EST8:35 PM CT6:35 UAE (+1)21:35 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 78 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 30-13 win over the Washington Redskins. He added one reception for five yards.
Analysis: Gordon only averaged 3.5 yards per carry and struggled to find much room in this one. He has gone five straight games without a 100-yard effort but the Chargers are red hot right now so no reason to change much. Gordon should go over 1,000 yards for the first time in three seasons though next week's matchup in Kansas City is a tough one.
Dec. 3, 2017 4:47 PM PT5:47 PM MT6:47 PM CT7:47 PM ET0:47 GMT8:47 5:47 PM MST7:47 PM EST6:47 PM CT4:47 UAE (+1)19:47 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 77 yards on 19 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 19-10 win over the Cleveland Browns. He added four receptions for 29 yards.
Analysis: Gordon didn't have a huge day but with 29 yards receiving, still went over 100 yards from scrimmage. He has rushed for at least 65 yards in three straight games and a matchup next week against Washington could help him get back to a 100-yard effort.
Nov. 23, 2017 4:54 PM PT5:54 PM MT6:54 PM CT7:54 PM ET0:54 GMT8:54 5:54 PM MST7:54 PM EST6:54 PM CT4:54 UAE (+1)19:54 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 65 yards on 21 carries Thursday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 28-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys. He added three receptions for 23 yards.
Analysis: Gordon is averaging a meager three yards per carry over the last three weeks, but he's received at least 21 touches in each of those games. It's that consistently heavy workload, not to mention his nine touchdowns this season, that keeps the third-year back a trustworthy fantasy starting option.

Analysis: Though Gordon has lost some passing-down work to Austin Ekeler in recent weeks, he's still been good for close to 20 touches per game and continues to find the end zone with regularity. The workhorse back is now up to nine touchdowns and has scored at least one in seven of the Chargers' 10 games.

He added one reception for seven yards.
Analysis: The Chargers scored first on an 87-yard touchdown run by Gordon, matching the longest in franchise history. It helped Gordon record just his second 100-yard game of the season, both on the road. In fact, Gordon has 531 total yards and six TDs in four road games, compared to 230 total yards and two TDs in four at home.

Analysis: Gordon has been slowed by a couple of injuries this season and is coming off another awful fantasy showing, rushing for 38 yards Sunday versus Denver. This week he gets to face a Pats defense allowing 4.77 yards per attempt - fourth-worst in the NFL.
Oct. 22, 2017 4:10 PM PT5:10 PM MT6:10 PM CT7:10 PM ET23:10 GMT7:10 4:10 PM MST6:10 PM EST6:10 PM CT3:10 UAE (+1)19:10 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 38 yards on 18 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 21-0 win over the Denver Broncos. He added one reception for six yards.
Analysis: This is now the third game in which Gordon has rushed for less than 40 yards. The inconsistency in the Chargers' running back has to be driving fantasy owners batty.

Analysis: He was limited in practice Wednesday due to a minor bone bruise, but it's same knee on which he had surgery as a rookie. Gordon was limited to 45 percent of the offensive snaps last week as a result. "I played through a lot and been through a lot with my knee," Gordon said via ESPN.com earlier in the week. "I'm good."
Sep. 24, 2017 7:23 PM PT8:23 PM MT9:23 PM CT10:23 PM ET2:23 GMT10:23 7:23 PM MST9:23 PM EST9:23 PM CT6:23 UAE (+1)22:23 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 79 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 24-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. ordon aggravated a preexisting knee injury late in the first half, but returned for the fourth quarter. He was limited to one yard on two carries after halftime, a result of both his injury and game script as the Chargers spent the second half in catch-up mode. He scored L.A.'s first and only touchdown of the day on an 11-yard scamper
Analysis: Gordon was bothered by a knee injury in the first half, but did return for the fourth quarter though he was hardly seen after halftime. He did have his best game of the season with 79 yards, a 4.6 average and scored a touchdown for the third straight contest.
Sep. 21, 2017 5:26 PM PT6:26 PM MT7:26 PM CT8:26 PM ET0:26 GMT8:26 5:26 PM MST7:26 PM EST7:26 PM CT4:26 UAE (+1)20:26 ETNaN:� - Gordon popped up on the injured report Thursday with a knee issue. He was limited on Friday.
Analysis: Though it's a bit alarming, we feel like the Chargers are just playing it safe with their stud running back and expect Gordon to be out there this weekend.
Sep. 17, 2017 4:15 PM PT5:15 PM MT6:15 PM CT7:15 PM ET23:15 GMT7:15 4:15 PM MST6:15 PM EST6:15 PM CT3:15 UAE (+1)19:15 ETNaN:� - Melvin Gordon ran for 13 yards and one touchdown on nine carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
