Melvin Gordon's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

This projection is assuming that Melvin Gordon may miss the the first month of the season and beyond.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Melvin Gordon as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019. His 154 projected fantasy points puts him at #25 behind David Montgomery and ahead of Phillip Lindsay. His fantasy ranking is obviously going to be negatively impacted given the expectation that he is out through 10/1. He has averaged 18.79 fantasy points in his past 12 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 12.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #22 ranked running back. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #12 most highly owned running back. Melvin Gordon is expected to come up short of last season's #6 fantasy position rank.
