Gordon will end holdout "at some point"

NEWS: A report out of ESPN says, "This is not a Le'Veon Bell situation ... He still wants to be a Charger. But he's got to protect himself."

ANALYSIS: The idea here is that Gordon wants to accrue a season towards his contract, which would make him a free agent in 2020. The rule is six weeks so that means he can return after Week 10 and still count this season. The problem now is that the Chargers are doing just fine without him it seems. OK, it's been only one game but we already knew Austin Ekeler could perform both as a runner and pass-catcher given his body of work last season.

I would test the waters with your league's Gordon owner and just take the temperature of how willing he is to part with him. Never know how much a fantasy owner is paying attention!
