Fantasy studs and duds: Chargers' Gordon primed for Week 4 breakout - Tim Heaney
The Cleveland Browns have allowed the most rushing yards and fifth-most fantasy points per game to running backs. They’ve been futile against bruisers such as Chris Ivory and Latavius Murray. Gordon hasn’t found the end zone yet but has numerous runs of 20-plus yards and is ready to strike this swiss-cheese front for his best game yet.

Sunday provided another rough outing for Rivers, who continues his slide down the list. Even dating back to the second half of 2014, Rivers hasn’t been the same player that was knocking on the door of elite status in 2013 and early 2014. Aside from one beautiful deep strike to WR Malcom Floyd, Rivers struggled on passes thrown beyond 10 yards on Sunday, finishing three-for-nine for 88 yards.
