Derek Lofland

Detroit had a hard time stopping RB David Johnson last week and Ekeler is making people forget about RB Melvin Gordon. He is a RB1 on the road this week.Evans is still a very talented wide receiver, but I think Godwin is going to have the WR1 value and Evans will settle in with WR2 value playing with statistically volatile QB Jameis Winston.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Ekeler scored three touchdowns in Week 1, but perhaps even more importantly, he played three times as many snaps as Justin Jackson. A big chunk of Ekeler's fantasy value comes from his role in the passing game -- he put up 96 yards and 2 of his 3 TDs last week as a receiver out of the backfield -- and his targets should only grow now that Hunter Henry is set to miss at least a month of action. Ekeler has emerged as a bonafide RB1, and that's how he should be treated for a Week 2 trip to Detroit. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Mike Evans was sick last week, which contributed to his quiet performance. Look for him to be more active going forward.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You were warned that the Colts didn't allow a 100-yard rusher last year, but you were also warned that Ekeler would be the leader of that Chargers backfield in a 65/35 split. The lack of rushing yards (58) didn't hold Ekeler back at all, as he racked up another 96 yards through the air and scored three total touchdowns en route to the No. 2 running back finish of the week. Jackson looked very good as well, though Ekeler has the job on lock. Ekeler will have to do something similar this week, as the Lions run defense is legit. We saw David Johnson rack up six catches for 55 yards and a touchdown through the air against them last week, which is a continuation of what we saw from the Lions defense last year when they allowed seven running backs to tally four or more receptions against them, including four running backs who caught at least six balls. With the offensive line a bit shaky, expect Rivers to rely on Ekeler in the passing game again. He needs to be in lineups as a middling RB2 who doesn't need to gain a whole lot on the ground to be fantasy relevant.
