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.Tennessee is 17th against fantasy running backs, but Fournette is playing on a struggling offense and he probably has little more than flex value at home this week.
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.Unlike past seasons, Fournette has been operating as a true every-down back in 2019. While his stats didn't jump off the page in Week 2, he played a whopping 97 percent of the snaps, a usage rate that is sure to translate to big fantasy performances before long. He's got a tough matchup on tap with a Titans D that completely stymied Marlon Mack last week, but Fournette's volume keeps him on the RB1 radar.
