Austin Ekeler Scampers In For A Touchdown

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has seen his usage drop like a rock since Melvin Gordon returned to the team, but he's still an incredibly talented player who can make things happen. On Thursday night, Ekeler was the man who brought LA back into the game when he darted into the end zone on a six-yard pass from Philip Rivers. Ekeler was on a drag route across the middle when he made the easy catch and threw on the afterburners to sneak in for the score before anyone touched him. Ekeler's value will almost entirely hinge on touchdowns since his touches will likely stay under 10 in most games, but in deep leagues, that can still play.

Austin Ekeler Is A Risky Start

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has more than proven that he can be a huge playmaker when the ball is in his hands, but with Melvin Gordon back to his full form and the bevy of offensive weapons that surround Ekeler, getting the ball into his hands will be the real challenge. Since Gordon's return, Ekeler has seen his usage drop precipitously, and there's no reason to think that will change moving forward. The only sign of hope for Ekeler is that he's electric when catching passes out of the backfield, and Oakland happens to struggle against those plays. Unfortunately, betting on a long shot like that is risky, at best, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check this week but hope for the best.

Austin Ekeler Still Lives

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler got to show off a few of his moves this week. Ekeler got to carry the ball 12 times, the most carries he's had in over a month, and he racked up a flashy 70 yards with the opportunities. He even included a 16-yard run that featured him side-stepping a tackler like a matador without ever slowing down. Ekeler was held out of the end zone for the first time in three weeks, but Sunday was a nice reminder of how dangerous a player Ekeler can be when given a chance. Hopefully, he'll continue to get touches moving forward.
