2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a terribly ineffective rookie season (833 total yards, 0 TDs), Melvin Gordon turned it around with a huge sophomore season where he totaled 1,416 yards, 12 TDs and 41 catches. This excellent fantasy performance came despite an offensive line that was far below average across the board. Much of Gordon's success was volume-based as he rushed for just 3.9 yards per carry, including 58 total red zone touches which put him at No.5 among running backs in that category, but there doesn't seem to be any indication that the Chargers will be looking to lighten his workload in 2017. The team replaced head coach Mike McCoy with Anthony Lynn, who has spent most of his coaching career as a running backs coach for various organizations. The Chargers also drafted guards Forest Lamp and Dan Feeney in Rounds 2 and 3, while signing tackle Russell Okung, who should improve the o-line performance in 2017.

Gordon is a very safe option due to the lack of talent behind him now that Danny Woodhead is gone. It's rare to find a "bell cow" back these days, which should mean he's locked in as a mid-first round pick in most fantasy drafts. Gordon is not without risk however, as he has dealt with injury issues in both of his two NFL seasons, having not played a snap in Weeks 16 or 17 in either season.
