Poll: Which Chargers RB will score more fantasy points in 2016?
It's fair to say that Melvin Gordon's rookie season did not live up to expectations.
One of two running backs selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft along with Todd Gurley, Gordon averaged only 3.5 yards per carry and failed to score on any of his 217 touches. He also had some issues with ball security as he lost four fumbles.
To make matters worse, MG3 had offseason microfracture surgery. Apparently, he has looked fully healthy at mini-camp and it's good news that the team wasn't concerned enough to add a back of significance via free agency and/or the draft.
Meanwhile, teammate Danny Woodhead posted another better-than-drafted fantasy season. He scored the 10th-most fantasy points among running backs in standard-scoring leagues; only Atlanta's Devonta Freeman and Minnesota's Adrian Peterson scored more fantasy points in PPR formats.
In each of his two full seasons with the Chargers, Woodhead has finished with at least 1,034 YFS and eight TDs. And over his past three full seasons, he has finished as a top-24 fantasy running back in standard-scoring formats each season.
The gap in fantasy production between San Diego's two backs won't be as great this season, but which one will score the most fantasy points?
