Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Texans are 19th against fantasy running backs this year, Ekeler will continue to be a RB1 in RB Melvin Gordon's absence.The Vikings are just 21st against fantasy running backs, Jacobs is a boom / bust RB2 on the road against a defense that is better on paper than it has played in the first two games.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
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.Jacobs made the most of his 12 touches last week against the Chiefs, piling up 99 yards. But the fact he got zero targets in the passing game was disappointing. He does not look to be an every-down back as long as the Raiders instead of sprinkling Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington in. Jacobs is also dealing with a groin issue this week, so he's merely a low-end RB2 for a difficult matchup at Minnesota.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Josh Jacobs left game for a bit to get IV, battling sore groin. DeAndre Washington worked in. Jalen Richard saw more work - some due to trailing game script. Jacobs off to hot start, but passing down duties may not be locked in like some think. @dwainmcfarland He benefited from positive game script in the first game and they won't be in that situation often.
