Nerdy Football Analysis: Gordon was arrested earlier this week for DUI. It remains to be seen if his illness or potential team discipline will keep him out of this week’s game against the Patriots. If he misses, Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman would see the bulk of the work at running back with Lindsay being the preferred fantasy option. The Patriots are investigating positive COVID-19 test results as of Friday morning which could potentially affect the game schedule.
