Ekeler is the king. The RB1 in fantasy averaging 18.9 touches and 95.6 total yards. After a one-week scare regarding his target volume, he bounced back with 15 targets last week to allay any fears once and for all about his role in the passing attack. Ekeler is 12th in opportunity share, first in weighted opportunities, and second in red zone touches. He's also 19th in evaded tackles, tenth in yards per route run, and 12th in breakaway runs. He's on a legendary pace with a 22.3% target share, 80 receptions (first), and 497 receiving yards (first). Since Week 7, the Raiders are 19th in rushing success rate, 16th in rushing yards per game, and 16th in explosive run rate allowed. Don't be surprised if he gets another 15 targets against this defense that's 32nd in DVOA against receiving backs. The Raiders have allowed the third-most receptions, the most receiving yards, and the third-highest yards per reception to running backs. Ekeler is the RB1 overall this week.

Austin Ekeler tops 100 yards in Week 13 loss

Austin Ekeler rushed for 35 yards on 10 carries, adding 67 yards on five receptions in Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Ekeler failed to find the end zone on Sunday, but still hit the 100-yard mark between his receiving and rushing work. The veteran running back remains a touchdown threat each and every week and can be started as an RB1 with confidence. Next week's matchup against the Miami Dolphins provides top-5 upside for Ekeler.
