Austin Ekeler Active Against Ravens

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (groin) is active for the wild-card game against the Ravens on Sunday. While Ekeler will be the change-of-pace back to Melvin Gordon in this tough matchup, Ekeler could become an extension of the passing game with short dump-off targets from quarterback Philip Rivers. Ekeler has some low-end sleeper appeal in DFS games that give points for catches.

Austin Ekeler Questionable Against Ravens

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (groin) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for the wild-card game against the Ravens on Sunday. Ekeler should be able to play but will be the change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon against a very stingy Ravens defensive front. Ekeler will be cheap in DFS games, but he'll face an uphill battle to reward those that take a chance on him.

Melvin Gordon Practicing In Full, Austin Ekeler Limited

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon (ankle) is practicing in full on Wednesday, while backup Austin Ekeler (groin) was limited. Ekeler is dealing with a new injury after returning in Week 17, but both backs should be ready to go for the wild-card game against the Ravens on Sunday. Gordon hasn't looked like himself the last two weeks after returning from a knee sprain, and he has a tough matchup against the stingiest defense in the NFL. Gordon will be risky at his DFS price, while both running backs are more of contrarian plays this weekend.
