Ekeler fell short of expectations last season, but missing several games will do that. When he was on the field, Ekeler was still an incredibly relevant fantasy option that displayed his receiving prowess time and time again. There's very little reason to doubt Ekeler heading into this season and he should be back in the low-end RB1/high-end RB2 conversation. You know exactly what you're going to get from him each and every week and that's invaluable in fantasy football.

Austin Ekeler: New OC Joe Lombardi compares RB to former Saints

New Chargers OC Joe Lombardi compared RB Austin Ekeler to Alvin Kamara, Reggie Bush, and Darren Sproles.

Fantasy Impact

Lombardi comes from the Saints, who have historically gotten their running backs involved in the passing game better than almost any other team. The fact that he's comparing Ekeler to these players is a good sign for how he wants to utilize his versatile, new RB. With prized rookie Justin Herbert set to enter his second year as the starter, it's looking as if the sky is the limit for this Chargers offense. Ekeler is currently priced as RB10 in the very early 0.5 PPR rankings.
