Austin Ekeler signs four-year deal with the Chargers

Chargers and restricted free-agent RB Austin Ekeler reached agreement on a four-year, $24.5 million deal that includes $15 million guaranteed, sources tell ESPN.

Fantasy Impact: 

This deal for Ekeler makes him the starter at RB for Los Angeles as they're clearly moving on from Melvin Gordon. The 24-year old finished as RB4 in total PPR points in 2019, amassing 1,550 combined yards on 132 rushes and 92 receptions. He's currently a second-round pick in early best-ball drafts, but could bump up to a first-rounder as we move through the off-season.
