It seemed that while the Chargers used Ekeler in an extended role while Melvin Gordon was dinged up last year, they wanted to upgrade their depth chart. While some will see that they didn't draft a running back until the seventh-round and think Ekeler is fine, you have to know that Justin Jackson (that pick) would've gone earlier if he didn't have so much mileage on his body. He was best-suited for a backup role, while Ekeler is likely the new Branden Oliver.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler was productive against Arizona both on the ground and in the passing game. He enters the season as the backup to Melvin Gordon for a Chargers team with Super Bowl aspirations.
