Melvin Gordon is back and will be a workhorse right? Not so fast says Eric Williams. The plan as of now is for both backs to have a 50/50 split.
The Los Angeles Chargers are saying Gordon will be the solid number 1 back when he is ready. With Gordon adamant about leaving LA at the end of the year and Ekeler playing like a true RB1, I think the split will continue. It will not stay 50/50 and will likely be game flow dependent.
Both backs look like they will be RB2’s with upside the rest of the way.
