Why Danny Woodhead Is a Trap Player and Melvin Gordon a Must Own

Earlier this summer Justin Winn provided an excellent breakdown of his Projection Machine outlook for the San Diego Chargers fantasy positions. Danny Woodhead is projected for 77 receptions compared to only 29 for Melvin Gordon. Those numbers feel right, but do they properly represent the range of outcomes?

  1. I agree with this despite my more conservative projection. Was actually disappointed I didn't get Gordon in the SFB.

    Also of note: no RB on the Chargers had more than 3.9 Y/A last season. They're returning all of their OL starters from 2015 and those starters combined to miss a ton of games last season. So there's reason to believe much of Gordon's struggle was attributable to the OL and it won't be (as) much of a problem this season.

  2. What sort of projection do you guys have for Melvin. To be optimistic for his season, you have to be expecting more than the 730 rushing yards on the cheat sheet app, don't you?
