Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars
It’s still comical to me to think that Gordon is a flex play but that’s honestly been what he’s become this season. After his holdout, Gordon was exclusively the primary ball carrier to Ekeler’s versatile role in the passing and rushing attack. In the last four games though, Gordon has averaged close to 20 carries per game and 89.0 rushing yards per game.
However, touchdowns come in bunches for Gordon while Ekeler continues to find ways to contribute, especially in the pass game as the team has been in 21 personnel, second only to their 11 personnel package, and are 60% successful when Gordon and Ekeler share the field. Both will have value against a Jaguars defense that ranks 28th against the run.
