Draft note
by John Paulsen
Austin Ekeler had 164 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 even though he left early with a high-ankle sprain. He returned in Week 6 and had a run of big games from Week 8 to Week 10, gaining 308 total yards and scoring four touchdowns in that stretch. In his last eight games, he only cleared 75 total yards twice, finishing as the RB29 for the year and the RB23 on a per-game basis. As he enters his age-29 season, he's unlikely to wrest the early-down role from Brian Robinson, but he's likely to operate as the primary pass-catcher out of the Washington backfield.

LAC RB Austin Ekeler - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Denver Broncos

Austin Ekeler played up to his 2023 standards against the Bills in Week 16, which is to say he wasn't a complete non-factor nor was he the reason you won your matchup. Ekeler rushed 15 times for 65 yards and added another 21 yards on three receptions on his way to 10.1 Half PPR points, RB23 numbers for the week. Ekeler is the RB21 in points per game this season. Ekeler's 65 yards were the second most he has managed on the ground since Week 1, but he has only scored one touchdown in his last six games.

Ekeler should be able to put up mid-tier RB2 numbers against the Broncos in Week 17. While the Broncos have bounced back considerably since their early season whooping against the Dolphins, they still rank 21st in aFPA to running backs in 2023.
