    wow, that came out of no where and very late to the off-season party.

    Holding out till he gets a new deal - demanding a trade if not - dude this is no good for Melvin Gordon owners in FF if no deal gets worked out

    I think he knows he'll be given LeVeon Bell treatment and be run into the ground on his final year. He's never played a full season so he's securing his future bank.

    I think he's going to be given the Levon Bell treatment and sit out 2019, this is way late in the offseason, post-draft, post most free agents - the team has no way to react and fill the spot. Dbag move, selfish and self serving sure to secure his finances, but as a teammate, I'd be at his house and kicking him around a bit, and bring the entire O-line with me

    Shitty move to do professionally. But any player (not named Mayfield) will understand why he's doing it. One injury can change everything. Luckily the Chargers have Ekeler to soften the fall.

    I think Gordon holding out into the season happens. He wants the money and security. I'm on the Justin Jackson train, he has low RB1 upside. Remember last year Jackson filled in for an inactive Gordon for what 2 wks last yr.

    If I remember correctly Austin Ekeler was out that game Jackson started. Ek boasts a 5.2 ypc and a proven pass catcher and solid pass protector out of the backfield. We could be looking at a split.

    Agree Crapman, This was written by Daniel Kelley in March of this year commenting on Ekeler being a free agent in 2020. Chargers backfield is full of uncertainty.




    Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers

    Counting the playoffs, Ekeler has topped 35 offensive snaps in a game in four of 32 career games. In those games, he has 129 rushing yards on 40 carries (3.10 yards per carry). In all his other games, he has 685 yards on 113 carries (6.06). Direct correlation? Maybe, maybe not. But as big a fan as I am of Ekeler (and I’m a big one), he’s not a guy I’m making a bell-cow back. His stock is what it is. He’s a flex option with DFS or best ball upside.

    @WTCM

    No preseason free agent moves allowed in SleeperU even if he is available

    Ekeler is on a roster other than mine is my other leagues. I probably would not drop or trade anyone to speculate on him... not even Gronk.

    Ekeler is not a bell cow running back- too small & no way can his body hold up the punishment.

    In the games Gordon missed last year Ekeler proved why he is not a 3down back. Great receiving back but can’t handle an increased workload. Use this news to sell high on Ekeler

    I believe Melvin IS getting traded!

    To piggy back off my previous statement, Ekelers stats the 4 Weeks Gordon missed last year

    sitting out the season doesn't do him any good. he'll still be contracted to the chargers. he will need to come back after 10 games i think so he's credited for the year in his contract.

    This is a smart move by Gordon. This is why the CBA is going to be changed. The NFL is trying to burn out players and pay them less money on 5 year contracts, looks like players have finally got some smarts. Bell sat out a year and landed upright in NY paid! We hate this but they like it!

    Duke Johnson just hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent. DJ would be a perfect fit in baby blue

    really, did that not work well for Leveon ? Yeah it got him exactly what he wanted, a big contract, Melvin is prob loking at that like a playbook for getting paid!

    Gordon and Duke possibly on the move, this changes things. Shares of Duke and Eklers/Jackson definitely rising!

    bell wasn't contracted to the stealers. he just couldn't sign with anyone else because the stealers franchise tagged him a second time. if gordon sits out the year he is still contracted to the chargers and won't be able to sign with another team next season.

    Forcing good RBs to sit on a rookie contract for 5 years when their prime is in their early 20s and a dbag selfish self serving move by NFL teams.
