Austin Ekeler granted permission to seek trade

According to Austin Ekeler's agent, the Chargers have given permission for the RB to seek a trade.

Ekeler and Los Angeles have made no headway on a new contract, which led to this outcome. The 27-year-old finished as RB1 in half-PPR fantasy leagues last season. Any alteration to his fantasy value would depend on the landing spot.

Ekeler has been one of the most productive fantasy and real-life athletes over the last few seasons, amounting to 1,826 rushing yards, 177 catches and 38 total touchdowns over the last two seasons. Ekeler has been a staple at the top of PPR leagues.

He has 18 total touchdowns, three more than the next running back, Jamaal Williams, and more than a handful of quarterbacks including Andy Dalton, Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson. Ekeler has been everything and more for fantasy managers who spent a top pick on him. The Chargers close the season against the Denver Broncos next week.
