LAC RB Austin Ekeler - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Los Angeles Rams

If there's been a Y in the day this season, then the chances are Austin Ekeler has delivered the goods for his fantasy managers. Week 16 was no exception. Ekeler carried the ball 18 times for 67 yards and two rushing touchdowns, giving him four scores in his last three games and 11 on the ground for the year. Ekeler caught all four of his targets, but these only earned him 12 yards. Ekeler's 99 receptions in 2020 have earned him the same number of yards (647) as 70 grabs got him last year. Still, he put up RB4 overall numbers with 21.9 Half PPR points.

It would take either a fool or a hero, or both, to project Ekeler to not be among fantasy football's highest scorers on a given week, and Week 17 is no exception. The Rams rank 22nd in aFPA to running backs and have allowed the 10th most receiving yards to tailbacks in 2022. Ekeler should be able to post RB1 numbers for the fantasy managers he has helped propel into Fantasy Championship week.
