Fantasy Impact:

Lombardi comes from the Saints, who have historically gotten their running backs involved in the passing game better than almost any other team. The fact that he's comparing Ekeler to these players is a good sign for how he wants to utilize his versatile, new RB. With prized rookie Justin Herbert set to enter his second year as the starter, it's looking as if the sky is the limit for this Chargers offense. Ekeler is currently priced as RB10 in the very early 0.5 PPR rankings.
