Austin Ekeler totals 99 yards, two scores in Chargers loss

RB Austin Ekeler carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards and a touchdown while catching five of his 12 targets for 35 yards and another touchdown in the Chargers 35-32 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler finished his season as the RB2 overall, just behind Jonathan Taylor. He scored an impressive 20 total touchdowns and totaled 1,459 scrimmage yards in 15 games. The Chargers finally used Ekeler as a workhorse and he did not disappoint. He was heavily involved in the run game and passing game, which gave him such a high floor each week. He will arguably be a top-3/4 pick next season in all fantasy formats.

Austin Ekeler totals 112 yards, touchdown in Chargers win

RB Austin Ekeler carried the ball 17 times for 58 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 54 yards in the Chargers 34-13 win against the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler was heavily involved in the offense and came threw for fantasy managers in the championship week. He did cede some rushing work with Justin Jackson, but that didn't stop him from putting up great numbers. The do-it-all RB will take on the Raiders next week in a must-win game.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler has been actived from the Reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's Week 17 game vs the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy managers who found a way to advance to the finals in season-long formats without Ekeler will have the dynamic RB available to them and presumably back in their lineups for Week 17. Good news all around.

Austin Ekeler now placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Chargers have now placed RB Austin Ekeler on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported earlier in the week that this would happen, but then it never did, which led to some confusion. Ekeler wasn't at Wednesday's practice, though, and the move has since been made official. Justin Jackson is a priority waiver wire pickup as an insurance policy.
