Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 17th against fantasy running backs, Kamara is a RB1 in a low-scoring game where he could see a lot of touches.Ekeler is starting to lose touches to RB Melvin Gordon, but he should still have flex appeal in a tough matchup at the Titans 8th ranked fantasy running back defense.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Kamara has struggled, failing to find the end zone recently. With him dealing with an ankle issue as well as facing an athletic Bears defense, it could be yet another week without a touchdown for the elite RB. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Melvin Gordon ruined everything. Ekeler had no less than 16 touches in any game while Melvin Gordon was out, but Week 6 saw Ekeler only record eight touches. Maybe the Chargers will realize that Ekeler deserves more of a share of the work, but he's fading into FLEX territory as it stands today.
