Draft note
by John Paulsen
Ekeler’s ADP is now in the sixth/seventh round due to concerns about Melvin Gordon’s holdout. Gordon and the Chargers seem to be far apart in negotiations, so I think Gordon will do the minimum to get his year of service and report by midseason. Ekeler should be the lead back while Gordon is out, but Justin Jackson will see 7-10 touches per game in a complementary role. In the three games Gordon missed last year, Ekeler saw 17, 18 and 17 touches. He didn’t run the ball particularly well, but still scored low-end RB2 numbers in those games. In the five games over the last two seasons where he saw at least 10 carries, he averaged 84 total yards on 16.2 touches per game. Those are low-end RB1 numbers. The problem is that he might turn into a pumpkin when Gordon returns. In 11 games with Gordon last year, Ekeler averaged 8.5 touches for 68 yards and 0.45 touchdowns. Those are low-end RB2 numbers, but I’m not sure we can expect 0.45 touchdowns per game again.

LAC RB Austin Ekeler - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Jacksonville Jaguars
The blueprint to beating the Jaguars is through the running game. The Jaguars are the third-worst defense against running backs, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Ekeler ranked as the half PPR RB18. On paper, the matchup looks better for Melvin Gordon but Ekeler continues to be involved on the ground and through the air.
