Chargers | Melvin Gordon expected to be fine

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 09:08:27 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is dealing with soreness in the same left knee he had microfracture surgery on during the 2016 offseason, but both he and head coach Anthony Lynn believe he is on target to play in Week 4 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was limited to two carries in the second half in Week 3 as the Chargers decided to play it safe with him. The third-year back ran for a season-high 78 yards and a touchdown in the first half alone, so he was doing his part to help the Chargers and fantasy owners win even as Philip Rivers was throwing three interceptions. Gordon should be considered a strong RB1 again this week, even against the Eagles' strong front seven.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon should be fine

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 13:41:48 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) has a minor bone bruise and a sore knee, but he should be good to go for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon failed to catch a ball last weekend for the first time this season, but he scampered for 79 yards and a touchdown on the ground even with the knee malady. He should still be viewed as an RB1 even in a tougher matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chargers | Branden Oliver totals 12 touches

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:31:56 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers RB Branden Oliver rushed eight time for 16 yards in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added four receptions for 18 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Oliver was thrust into action with Melvin Gordon checking out for about a quarter and a half due to a knee ailment. He isn't likely to have much in the way of fantasy appeal in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles unless Gordon suffers some sort of a setback forcing him out of the lineup. Gordon returned to the game, so it appears he is fine.

Chargers | Hunter Henry blanked again

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:31:21 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry was held without a catch in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he didn't even have one target.

Fantasy Tip: That's two of Henry's three games without a catch so far in 2017. He is the heir apparent to Antonio Gates with the Bolts, but he has been too inconsistent so far to rely upon regularly outside of deeper fantasy leagues. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chargers | Two catches for Antonio Gates

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:30:52 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted two receptions for 30 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Gates didn't do much, but at least he wasn't blanked like Hunter Henry. The veteran Gates shouldn't be relied upon as a regular fantasy contributor at this point of his career, but it appears Henry isn't quite ready to take the torch just yet.

Chargers | Five grabs for Keenan Allen

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:30:03 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen managed five receptions for 61 yards on nine targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has five or more catches in each of his first three games. He has always been productive, especially for those in PPR fantasy formats, when healthy. He appears to be 100 percent after an ACL injury last season and he remains a solid WR2 heading into Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chargers | Travis Benjamin cracks century mark

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:29:26 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers WR Travis Benjamin posted five receptions for 105 yards on eight targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is a speed burner, and his 44-yard catch was just one yard short of a career best. Temper expectations heading into Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles, however, as he entered the game with just four grabs for 54 yards and a score. He needs more games like this before he becomes someone to consider regularly in fantasy.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon runs for 79 yards, TD

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:28:46 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) finished with 79 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon left the game in the first half due to a knee injury, staying in the locker room at halftime to receive further treatment. He was able to return in the fourth quarter and finish the game. It's a good sign for fantasy owners that he was able to return. He'll meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 barring any setbacks.

Chargers | Philip Rivers picked off three times

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:28:09 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers completed 20 of his 40 pass attempts for 237 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Rivers had a nightmare outing, as he was picked three times, sacked twice and he had another potential interception overturned by instant replay. He posted a dismal 37.2 quarterback rating in the loss. Rivers now has four touchdowns and four interceptions through his first three games, all losses. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chargers | Melvin Gordon leaves with injury

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:31:43 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) left the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and he did not come out in the second half as he remained in the locker room for further treatment.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon jogged back onto the sidelines in the third quarter and he is wearing his helmet, although Branden Oliver remains in the game. Gordon had a touchdown earlier for his fantasy owners, and it appears he'll be able to return soon. Officially he is still questionable to return.
