Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Tyreek Hill is the definition of upside. He's arguably the leagues fastest player, playing in arguably the leagues best offense. If you like to chase upside and big plays, Hill is your guy.Ekeler finally gets the starting role in LA but he also loses his dump off heavy QB - Philip Rivers. Now he'll have the combination of Justin Herbert and Tyrod Taylor to get him the football. With Herbert likely to be the starter sooner rather than later, I like Ekeler's chances of finishing inside the 10 at RB.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Tyreek Hill has been a very good fantasy asset to have over the last three years. However, he's not someone you want to trust with consistency. For instance, he's posted WR2 or better numbers in just 21-of-43 games over that time. Those numbers pale in comparison to guys like Thomas, Adams, Jones, and Hopkins.After seeing Ekeler's contract extension this offseason, it seemed a little light for a workhorse, leading many to believe they'd draft a running back early on. They waited until the fourth round to select UCLA's Joshua Kelley, who's a bigger complementary back. The Chargers offense isn't likely going to be as high scoring as it was with Philip Rivers under center, but Ekeler remains the top dog in the backfield. Still, don't just anticipate this offense is going to be as potent, or that he'll have as many scoring opportunities, which is why he's best-suited as a high-end RB2 than an RB1.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
41 TDs over past 4 seasons is tops among WRs, and has 4th-most FAN PTS thru 1st 59 games of career among WRs over the past 20 yearsAveraged better than 1.0 FAN PTS/TOUCH in Half PPR formats each of his 3 seasons, and if he can maintain that with a QB change in 2020, another RB Top 10 finish likely
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Locked in with the best QB possibly ever. No brainer WR1 with overall WR1 upside. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 In .5 PPR leagues last season, Austin Ekeler (14.71 PPG) actually performed better than Miles Sanders (14.36 PPG) in the second half of the season. Sanders is getting loads of love while Ekeler has been more of a forgotten stud. Ekeler did not have a game with double-digit rushes after Week 4 last season and was still an RB1. He'll get it done, no matter what.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hill was not the same fantasy receiver in 2019 with just 883 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2019. He missed 4 games with a collarbone injury that hurt his season and he played 2 more games without QB Patrick Mahomes II. He should be elite again in 2020.Ekeler had 1,550 yards from scrimmage and 11 touchdowns while splitting touches with RB Melvin Gordon for 12 games. Gordon leaving for Denver should give him an increased workload, but Ekeler's quarterback situation is less than ideal and they added Joshua Kelley in the NFL Draft, which could create another RBBC.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
As long as Hill is connected to the Chiefs offense and Patrick Mahomes, he belongs in the top-5 fantasy WR discussion. Hill comes with a safe floor, but also has the talent and skillset to single-handedly win you a matchup. You can draft Hill again confidently in 2020.Ekeler should see a drop-off in overall targets with Tyrod Taylor now at QB, but it won't be as much as some people are projecting. Ekeler's chances of repeating as the RB6 simply aren't there again this season, but he's going to be a fantastic RB2 option for your roster.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Tyreek Hill is a spectacular player to watch but I'm always a little nervy having him on my NFL team. Despite playing for the best offence in the league, he seems to have a lot of down weeks. You can forgive him though when he blows up for 35 points the next week. His elite upside makes him an awesome best ball option but his lack of weekly reliability makes him a questionable first round choice and his explosiveness makes him more susceptible to injuries than the average WR. Ultimately he's a super non-PPR option but when receptions count he lacks the floor of other elite players and should be docked accordingly.I'm very torn on Austin Ekeler in 2019 and could see myself slotting him in anywhere from RB8 to RB 14 in half-ppr before the pre-season concludes. He remains a pass-catching monster but I'm not yet convinced he'll provide enough volume in the running game to justify a first-round pick. I expect a slight reduction in the quality of this attack overall with Philip Rivers gone and I could also see Joshua Kelley or Justin Jackson chipping into his goalline and between-the-tackles work. Ultimately, this really comes down to your risk-aversion. In PPR he'll be a monster but otherwise, he's a risk you may choose to avoid. If he's sitting there in the second round though, he's going to be very hard for me to pass up on.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Averaged 15.62 ppg in outings where he played more than 18% of the snaps(10 games). Easily good for a pace of WR2(250) in 2019, nearly 26 points ahead of Julio in second place. Nothing unusual either. Scored 290 in 2018 to lead all WRs. Injuries have hampered him but he's the clear WR2 in 2020 for me and while not the most consistent option, definitely the best in terms of week to week ability to win you a week. Injuries were a concern in 2019 but tired of hearing how boom or bust he is. The fewest points he got you in 2019 when not leaving the game was 7.6, that's totally fine.I'm bad at ranking outliers. Had a career high 132 carries last year, yet to go over 560 rushing yards. Makes his money in the passing game, which now unknown. Can't be more efficient than last year: 108 targets, 92 receptions. I think it would be safe(?) to pencil him in for 1000 total yards and 5 TDs. Which would put him in the RB20s range. 20 touches a game without Gordon(4 games)23.75ppg 12 touches a game with Gordon(12 games)14ppg. 6 rushes a game with Gordon The Chargers were 28th in att last year and that still leaves almost 17 rushing attempts per year Gordon also got a healthy 55 targets in his 12 games, albeit with Rivers, Melvin also paced as RB11 after his return
