Austin Ekeler totals 99 yards, TD in Chargers loss

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler carried the ball 12 times for 31 yards while catching six of his eight targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler churned in a solid fantasy outing on Sunday, despite the loss. Nearly another 100-scrimmage yard game and his eight targets were tied for 2nd on the team with Mike Williams. He caught a TD pass from Justin Herbert in the 2nd-quarter and was heavily involved throughout the game. He's a surefire RB1 next week against the Bengals.

Austin Ekeler racks up four touchdowns in LAC win

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed the ball 11 times for 50 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught six of his seven targets for 65 yards and two more touchdowns in the Chargers Week 11 win against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler was dominant from the beginning of this game. Against a tough Steelers defense, Ekeler racked up 115 total yards and four scores. He was heavily involved in the passing game and ran the ball very well. Ekeler is having his best season and fantasy managers who drafted him are extremely grateful for his dominance this season. He's a set-it-forget-it RB1 next week against the Broncos.

Austin Ekeler posts 59 yards and a touchdown in Chargers loss

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed the ball 11 times for 44 yards and also caught three of his six targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers Week 10 loss against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler salvaged his day with a receiving touchdown but otherwise wasn't very productive as we all hoped. His six targets were tied with Mike Williams for 2nd on the team, so he's still being utilized in the passing game, which gives his a high-floor. He will still be a RB1 against a Steelers defense that was gashed by the Lions on Sunday.

Austin Ekeler totals 82 scoreless yards in Chargers win

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed the ball 17 times for 59 yards while catching three passes for 23 yards on three targets in the Chargers 27-24 win against the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler was bottled up for most of the contest. He was not very involved in the passing game compared to his usage in the games prior. Nonetheless, he still provided a decent floor for fantasy managers. Ekeler will be a high-end RB1 against a Vikings defense that gave up 247 rushing yards and a touchdown to the Ravens on Sunday.

Austin Ekeler totals 124 yards, one touchdown in Week 8 loss

Austin Ekeler rushed the ball 11 times for 64 yards and one touchdown while catching six passes for 60 yards in the Chargers Week 8 loss against the Patriots on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler was involved from the beginning and produced a great fantasy line on the day. His 10 targets trailed only Keenan Allen on the day and will be targeted heavily most weeks. He's as safe as they come and will be a locked-and-loaded RB1 next week against the Eagles.
