Chargers plan to use RBs Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson as a tandem

Change-of-pace back Austin Ekeler will get the start, and you can expect second-year pro Justin Jackson to get some touches against the Colts.

"I've always used those guys as a tandem," Lynn said. "That's not going to change. We're going to put guys in good positions to do what they do best."

Fantasy Impact: 

We're higher on Ekeler especially because of his pass-catching abilities. In our PPR rankings we put Ekeler 13th while Jackson is 35th. Look for Jackson to get some early down work with Ekeler at the very last playing in passing situations. But without Gordon, the story said the team will reply more on QB Rivers which potentially puts Ekeler in a much better spot.
