Week 7 seems like a really long time ago. The Chargers barely managed to scrape by the Tennessee Titans in London, playing without their star running back due to a hamstring injury.

Coming off a bye week, Melvin Gordon looks to have had just enough time to recover and will likely be back in Week 9 when the Chargers take on the Seahawks on Sunday.

Despite a questionable tag, Gordon is expected to suit up, which is a good sign for the Chargers and his fantasy owners. Gordon has 91 rushes for 466 yards to go along with 30 receptions for 279 yards and 9 total touchdowns.

If and when Gordon  is cleared to play, he slots right back in as an RB1, especially against an underwhelming Seahawks defense on Sunday.
