The Colts are 17th against fantasy receivers, but Hopkins has not found the end zone since Week 1. He is a WR1 in name that has not really played like it most of the season.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.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Well it's getting a little weird now. Hopkins still recorded nine receptions on 12 targets (good) but it was only for 55 yards (less good) and he hasn't scored since Week 1 (not at all good). He's still a buy, but we expected these less-than-stellar performances to subside by now.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.
