 Ekeler had RB3 value last year playing behind RB Melvin Gordon, he is going to have a ton of upside if RB Melvin Gordon can find a trading partner.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's tough to know how you should value Robinson as he was coming off a torn ACL in 2018, joining a new team with a new quarterback, and learning a new offense. With that being said, he'll likely be a bit more inconsistent than he was in Jacksonville due to the number of weapons the Bears have available. Between him, Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel, Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen, and David Montgomery, you may be stuck with some lackluster weeks, which is not something you want out of your WR2, meaning he's best-suited as a WR3 who'll give you some WR1 performances at timesHe's never going to win you a fantasy league, but Ekeler can play a role if you're in a league with a lot of starters. Even with Melvin Gordon healthy, Ekeler touched the ball between 7-14 times from Week 1 to Week 7. It seemed as if the Chargers were okay with Justin Jackson as the primary workhorse if Gordon went down, but knowing Ekeler should total anywhere between 120-200 touches in the Chargers offense carries value
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 I don't know if any Chargers back is a stud if Gordon sits, but Ekeler is easily the one to own.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Robinson was disappointing last season to say the least, 55/754/4. Had a single game in 13 half ppr contests with over 14 fantasy points. Now he is being selected as a low end WR2 and that is too rich for my liking. He has not produced up to par for years now.Only running back with 5 ypc and 10 ypr over the last two seasons. Yes, he struggled a bit when it was his backfield last season, but it was a small sample. I expect him to be the lead back in Gordon's absence while also operating as the receiving back. He is quite a steal in drafts right now.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Robinson led the Bears in targets last year despite playing in just 13 games, and had a big playoff performance with 10 catches for 143 yards and a touchdown. Now, in his second year playing with Mitchell Trubisky in Matt Nagy's system and another year removed from his ACL tear, some growth should certainly be expected. Don't let last year's "disappointing" season allow you to let Robinson fall too far. He should be a relatively reliable starting wide receiver in all fantasy formats. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
If we forget his one big season from FOUR years ago, ARob has averaged 4 TDs in his other three healthy seasons. Last season, he had over 6 catches ONE time and scored a TD in only four games. He'll see consistent targets, making him a WR3, but not much more.Chargers RBs last season combined for a line of - 138 targets, 104 receptions, 1,029 yards, 7 TDs. With MelGo or not, Ekeler is going to have standalone value as a flex with upside as a receiving threat in that backfield. If MelGo holds out, I'd prefer Ekeler to Jackson, as he provides a safer floor and higher upside.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Robinson may have disappointed last year but let's remember that he was coming into a new offense with limited pre-season work due to his significant injury. He missed some time but still led the team in targets and may bounceback to his former WR1 self with a fully healthy season in this up-and-coming offense.We've essentially got two different fantasy assets here as Ekeler's relevance will depend entirely on the Melvin Gordon holdout. If Gordon plays, Ekeler is an RB4 depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and in case of injuries. If Gordon sits, Ekeler jumps clean into the top 25 fantasy RBs immediately.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Robinson is a very uninspiring pick this season. He's on a good offense, with a good QB and a good OC. The problem is all the talent around him. They have Cohen/Gabriel/Miller, who are all capable pass catchers, but Montgomery can also catch passes, Burton is a solid receiving threat, and Patterson will be used on designed plays. I have Robinson projected to see a 20% target market share...and I really can't increase it much from there. That sort of volume gives him the 44th highest projection among WR's. That's not going to cut it for me. I'll happily pass on him in the middle rounds of drafts.The Melvin Gordon news has upped the value of Austin Ekeler. It doesn't seem like the two parties are close to a deal, so Ekeler has a very real chance to open the season as the starter. The most likely scenario (although we're all really just guessing) is that Gordon holds out until mid season, plays out the rest of the year, then enters FA. Under that scenario Ekeler needs to be drafted in the middle rounds. He holds value even when Gordon returns, and he'll be extremely valuable while he's away. There's also a chance the team trades him, which would also make him a value. If you're drafting, and Gordon is still holding out, then you should be targeting both Ekeler and Jackson.
