Since his return in Week 6, Ekeler has averaged 17.3 touches and 78.5 total yards. Since Week 6, among 58 qualifying backs, he has ranked 42nd in explosive run rate and 46th in yards after contact per attempt. Over his last seven games played, Ekeler has surpassed 80 total yards only twice. Ekeler likely won't reverse this concerning trend in Week 13. Since Week 7, New England has allowed the fifth-lowest explosive run rate and the third-lowest missed tackles per attempt and yards after contact per attempt. Ekeler still probably sees 15-20 touches this week, and despite the bad matchup, if he falls into the end zone, he'll finish as a top-15 back in fantasy. Week 13 Positional Value: RB1/2
