Draft note
by John Paulsen
Ekeler finished as the RB2 last year with the third-highest per game average (half-PPR). He missed time in 2020, but finished with the 13th-highest per game average. The Chargers have a top-12 offensive line and Ekeler will continue to see a ton of work as a receiver. I’m expecting to see more of the same from the 27-year-old.

LAC RB Austin Ekeler - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Broncos

Austin Ekeler sat out the Chargers' loss to the Texans, missing out on what would have been a smash spot given the damage Justin Jackson did to the Texans on the ground and through the air. Despite missing the week, Ekeler is still the overall RB2 in half-PPR formats in 2021, leading all backs with 558 receiving yards and scoring 17 total touchdowns.

The Broncos' defense has not been a generous one towards fantasy running backs this season, as they rank 8th in aFPA to the position. Ekeler is still a player you should start without hesitation, given his multi-purpose role and nose for the end zone. You don't want to go into Fantasy Championship Week with Ekeler on your bench.
