Melvin Gordon's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Melvin Gordon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 92 projected fantasy points puts him at #19 behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire and ahead of Antonio Gibson. He has averaged 11.56 fantasy points in his past 30 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.2 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#22) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Melvin Gordon is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #20 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

MELVIN GORDON PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF ANTONIO GIBSON IN WEEK 9

Melvin Gordon is projected for 10.4 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #14 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Antonio Gibson but behind Ezekiel Elliott. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#18). He is projected for 10.4 fantasy points.

MELVIN GORDON IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($6.6K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($5.3K)

He is projected for 11.9 FanDuel points and 14 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$444 more than $6.6K on FanDuel and +$792 more than $5.3K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
