2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
2015 rookie running back Melvin Gordon was among the most disappointing fantasy picks this past season as he failed to produce high-end numbers even in great matchups. A first round NFL draft pick, most believed that Gordon would immediately step into a solid San Diego offense and drastically improve the teamís dismal per-attempt numbers from 2014 where they averaged just 3.4 yards per carry as a team. While the teamís YPC did improve, Gordon and the team averaged just 3.5 yards per carry on the season. Most disappointing, however, was that the team scored just four rushing touchdowns on the entire season Ė none of which came from Gordon. Gordonís 184 rushing attempts without a touchdown puts him on pace to compete for the highest number of attempts in the history of the league without hitting paydirt. Of course, one has to assume that Gordon will eventually fluke his way into a touchdown even if his skills havenít improved from a season ago, but the second-year back seems focused on boosting his production this season after a rookie year which even he has described as ďterribleĒ in interviews.

After an offseason spent recovering from a knee injury which ended his season back in Week 15, Gordon will have to re-convince fantasy owners that he is worth consideration as a potential high-end fantasy back. Even though he was terrible, the Chargers stayed committed to Gordon for the most part, giving him an average of 16 touches per game. In todayís NFL, thatís hard to come by. Itíll be difficult to forget his horrendous rookie season, but Gordon could offer tremendous value for fantasy owners who opt to take a chance on him. The skills are there, the opportunity is there. He just needs to put it all together.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Melvin Gordon sat out Pro Bowl as a precaution
Missed final three games of season with sprained PCL
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 30, 5:30 pm

San Diego Chargers
Melvin Gordon missed the final three games to a sprained posterior cruciate ligament. He finished with 254 carries for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding 41 catches for 419 yards and two scores. By choosing a proactive approach Sunday, he ensured to be healthy when working to build off a breakout campaign. (San Diego Union-Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Gordon will enter the offseason fully healthy, which was not the story last season when he underwent microfracture knee surgery. Despite finishing just three rushing yards shy of 1,000, Gordon established himself as a three-down force once Danny Woodhead (ACL) was lost for the season. The Chargers hope to bring back Woodhead, but there is little doubt he will play a bit role behind Gordon, who should be in the discussion to be among the top-five RBs in fantasy drafts.
