FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 16 ISSUES: NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR MELVIN GORDON, WHAT IS WRONG WITH MIKE EVANS?

The all-important fantasy football championship is upon us and that includes yours truly in the Experts League.  So with that said, pretty much every piece of injury news is of chief important and worth discussing.  Let;s get to the latest:

-There is very little chance that San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon will return in time for Week 16 as he continues to try and recover from hip and knee injuries.  Head coach Mike McCoy pretty much confirmed that Gordon needs at least another week to return and so that doesn't help any of his fantasy football owners.  Gordon is a huge loss as he is the rare bellcow back who also has been a big TD guy this season.  That means it will be another week of Kenneth Farrow and Ronnie Hillman.  With Farrow doing a firm face-plant in getting the start last week, this is a situation to avoid entirely.

-What is wrong with Tampa Bay Buc's ace wideout Mike Evans?  Having not scored in three straight games, Evans suffered some sort of injury in Week 15 that head coach Dirk Kotter won't discuss.  Be that as it may, Kotter said that Evans will be out there in a very juicy matchup versus the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.  Evans should be able to torch the horrific Saints secondary and he is one of the best plays among receivers for the ultimate game.

-Both Jordan Matthews and Darren Sproles are listed as questionable for Thursday Night Football as the Philadelphia Eagles. Ryan Mathews had a tremendous games running the football with Sproles out in Week 15 and his fantasy football owners hope he will get that chance again with Sproles sitting.  The short week is always a tough deal when it comes to injuries for Sproles and Jordan Matthews but it appears as thought both will be ready to answer the bell.  That puts Ryan Mathews into RB 2 status and quite risky to play but in standards we would sign off due to the decent touchdown potential.
