Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
92 catches, 8 rec. TDs unlikely repeated, but bump in run game with M. Gordon gone should get him back to 225-ish touches, and into upper RB2 territory 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 After being the primary backup with the Raiders for the past four years, Washington signed with the Chiefs this offseason. Although the Kansas City offense offers incredibly opportunities for running backs, it's nearly impossible to envision a scenario where Washington is the beneficiary. The Chiefs spent a first-round pick on Clyde Edwards-Helaire, still have Damien Williams, and continue to roster Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams. There's next to no chance that Washington is worth rostering this season so long as he remains with the Chiefs.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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 Cam Akers in the NFL Draft, which could create a RBBC. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 The Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with RB DeAndre Washington. The former Texas Tech RB who had been playing for the Raiders now reunites with Patrick Mahomes.
Seth Miller

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
