He's never going to win you a fantasy league, but Ekeler can play a role if you're in a league with a lot of starters. Even with Melvin Gordon healthy, Ekeler touched the ball in-between 7-14 times from Week 1 to Week 7. It seemed as if the Chargers were okay with Justin Jackson as the primary workhorse if Gordon went down, but knowing Ekeler should total anywhere between 120-200 touches in the Chargers offense carries value.

Austin Ekeler catches three passes in loss to Pats

Austin Ekeler hauled in three receptions for 19 yards as the Chargers fell to the Patriots 41-28 in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler didn't get any carries as the Chargers were playing from behind all afternoon. Ekeler filled in admirably for Melvin Gordon at times and will enter 2019 as one of the best handcuffs in fantasy football.
