Draft note
by John Paulsen
Ekeler finished the season as the No. 6 running back (half-PPR) after finishing No. 24 the year before. One of the most versatile running backs in the league, he caught 92 of 108 targets for 993 yards and eight touchdowns, so he would have been the No. 14 fantasy receiver if only his receiving numbers counted! Ekeler would probably be going in the first round if not for the quarterback change in L.A. Philip Rivers was known to pepper his running backs with targets, but Tyrod Taylor didn’t generate big receiving seasons for his backs when he started in Buffalo. (LeSean’s high-water mark in Buffalo was 59 catches in 2017.) I’m expecting Ekeler’s receptions to regress a bit, but he’ll still catch enough balls to have a very good shot to finish in the top 10 in PPR and half-PPR formats.

LAC RB Austin Ekeler - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City

Ekeler had a fine day last week against the Denver Broncos as he carried the ball 10 times for 45 yards and caught all three of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown. Ekeler is clearly not at 100% healthy, but he still managed to salvage his fantasy game with a score.

This week Ekeler takes on the Kansas City Chiefs who are ranked 22nd in aFPA to RBs this season. With the Chargers to play without Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry once again, Ekeler will once again be leaned to carry the offensive load. Even at less-than-ideal health, Ekeler is still a strong RB1 this week.
