Week 3: at Indianapolis Colts
All RB vs IND
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Melvin Gordon was drafted to be a featured running back in the NFL, and now that his sidekick/mentor Danny Woodhead is out for the season due to an ACL injury, Gordon will get the headlining role in the Chargers' backfield. The early results this season are encouraging that Gordon can handle the workload - he has compiled 38/159/3 rushing and 3/18/0 receiving to land at seventh-best fantasy running back in the PPR scoring paradigm after two games. With Keenan Allen also out for the year, the Chargers will have to rely on their young players moving forwards.
The Colts' rush D has been abysmal all year long, averaging 34.6 fantasy points allowed to opposing fantasy backs through two games (worst in the NFL), while also averaging 125 rushing yards allowed per game (29th in the NFL) with three rushing scores handed out to date. They coughed up 31/134/1 to the Broncos most recently.
Advantage, San Diego and Gordon.
