Ekeler enters Week 3 as the highest-scoring running back in fantasy football, thanks in large part to his prolific role in the Chargers' passing game. This week he'll face off with the Texans, who gave up 40 receiving yards to Leonard Fournette last week and 72 receiving yards to Alvin Kamara in Week 1. Ekeler deserves to be treated as an elite, top-5 fantasy RB for this matchup.
