Fantasy Impact:

Ekeler will miss a second consecutive game with an ankle injury after rushing 16 times for 117 yards and a touchdown and catching four of his five targets for 47 yards in Week 1. Joshua Kelley is the next man up in the Chargers' backfield, but he disappointed in Week 2, rushing for 39 yards on 13 carries (3.0 AVG) while failing to haul in his only target. However, the Chargers faced the Titans and their stingy run defense last week and have a more favorable matchup against a Vikings team that allowed the Eagles to rush for over 250 yards a week ago.
