Melvin Gordon Holdout to end, he could join this week

Recommended Posts

I may be completely wrong here but if his relationship with the team is fractured and there isn’t much chance he stays with the Chargers after his current contract. I would think they will run him into the ground when he’s ready to play

I don't think your basic view is wrong, but not sure we really know how fractured the relationship is and how unlikely it would be he ends up with the team next year. Trade deadline is a long way off, and he could always be traded too so don't want to damage him. 

 

Trying to recall any prior situations as precedent, but this mid 50s brain doesn't recall things as easily.

The Chargers wont pay him what he'll want ....and Ekeler isn't cooperating.

And imo Jackson is the future.

Melvins gamble appears to not be working out too well.

Well, shoot.  There goes my plan to trade Ekeler...

I already traded away Ekeler as I knew this day was coming.

Granted, I received Antonio Brown, so... CHAMPIONSHIP! :woot:

I also traded away Ekeler and received Julio Jones after a guy needed a RB and saw his production week 1 lol. Also had Melvin Gordon on my bench so things are looking up for me

Ouch.  

I really hope Brown plays again and for a team that can utilize him.  That's a big spot on my bench he's hogging.

I dropped him in two leagues.

He's never playing again. Not in the NFL anyway

If he could have managed to shut his trap he could have been a great pickup for you.

Gordon needs to take 1 more week off I am currently in 1st place in the NFFC out of 3204 people and I own Ekeler so I know my stay at the top will be short lived so I want 1 final monster game from Ekeler so I can finish week 4 as the #1 team and at least have that in my memory as my team fades when Gordon takes over.

With Justin Jackson out, you might get that!

With JJ out, I would think the Gordon plays

Even if Gordon plays, I would bet he doesn't stay healthy very long.  There is no way he is in game shape.  I'd hold onto Ekeler....he'll be an RB1 again soon enough.

Active, but will be used only in an emergency.

As a guy I have been watching since hs, I hope it all works out for him.  The NFL is kind of a mess with this contract situation right now.  And the players aren't helping.

The question is what do the Chargers do going forward?  Ekeler has proven he's solid.  I have both Gordan and Ekeler and I have no idea who to play in the future.
