Despite his limitations, Gordon won't be listed on the Chargers' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans in London.

While Gordon's activity level at Friday's practice raises an eyebrow, it doesn't seem there is any cause for concern at this time, as head coach Anthony Lynn said the Chargers were just proceeding cautiously with the running back. Those planning to include Gordon in weekly fantasy lineups will still want to keep tabs on his status leading up to game time, with kickoff coming at 9:30 a.m. EDT. If Gordon's status takes a turn for the worse and he ends up limited in Week 7 or ruled out for the contest, Austin Ekeler would see a boost in activity.

<![CDATA[Chargers' Melvin Gordon is a definite 2018 MVP candidate]]> Melvin Gordon is having the best season of his career after being the team’s first-round selection in the 2015 NFL draft. Gordon’s campaign has been so phenomenal that not only should he be considered a top-10 RB in the NFL, but he’s worthy of being talked as the league’s Most Valuable Player.

The former Wisconsin product most recently led the way on Sunday with 18 carries for 132 yards, averaging 7.3 yards per carry. He also had three rushing touchdowns, giving him 24 for his career. That number is tied for the second-most in the NFL since 2006]]>

Gordon opened the scoring with a four-yard rushing touchdown, then added scores from 10 and 11 yards out in the third quarter. He's been a touchdown machine this season, with six on the ground and three more through the air. Gordon should be treated as an RB1 in all matchups, including the upcoming Week 7 home tilt against Tennessee.
