Kenneth Farrow, Ronnie Hillman to see extra carries with Gordon out
Kenneth Farrow and and Ronnie Hillman are set to get extra carries for the San Diego Chargers in Week 16 with starter Melvin Gordon ruled out.
Gordon has a hip and knee injury that kept him out of Week 15 and will also force him to miss this Saturday’s game at Cleveland.
Chargers have ruled out RB Melvin Gordon (hip, knee) for Saturday vs. Browns. Look for committee between Kenneth Farrow, Ronnie Hillman.

Farrow saw the bulk of the carries against the Raiders last weekend, rushing 15 times for 39 yards and catching two passes. Hillman carried seven times for 34 yards. But Farrow fumbled twice — losing one — so you figure he might receive a slight demotion given the way the two performed.
Neither player is a great bet to see huge action this weekend, but Hillman might be the better play if you’re in your fantasy football finals.
