Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers
Blind-bid recommendation: 100%
He’s owned in about 54% of ESPN leagues, but it’s worth checking to see if he’s available in yours. Ekeler was more involved in Sunday's game plan even before Melvin Gordon exited with his knee injury. He finished with 35 yards and a score on the ground, plus 10 catches for 68 more yards.
When Gordon missed Week 7, Ekeler carried 12 times and saw 7 targets. He’ll be looking at a similar workload with Gordon expected to miss "the next few weeks."
