View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Spiller was a 4-star recruit out of high school and led the Texas A&M backfield all 3 years on campus.
    • He ran for 946 yards and 10 scores on 5.4 yards per carry as a true freshman, adding 29 catches for 203 yards.
    • Spiller set new career highs as a sophomore with 188 carries and 1,036 yards (5.5 YPC). He added a 20-193-0 receiving line.
    • Spiller went for 179-1,011-6 rushing and 25-189-1 receiving this past year. It’s worth noting that his carry share dropped from 51.3% in 2020 to 43.7%, as 2nd-year, 4-star RB Devon Achane took on a bigger role.
  • Spiller bombed his pre-draft testing:
    • 4.64-second 40 time (32nd percentile among RBs)
    • 30-inch vertical (7th)
    • 114-inch broad (22nd)
  • The Chargers selected Spiller in the 4th round with the 123rd overall pick of this spring’s draft. He was the 9th RB off the board.
  • Austin Ekeler is locked in atop the Chargers’ RB depth chart. Spiller will compete with Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree for the #2 spot.
    • Kelley has mustered just 3.2 yards per carry over his first 2 NFL seasons. He ranked 45th among 47 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus rushing grade as a rookie. He received just 33 attempts last year and finished with an even worse PFF grade.
    • Rountree, a 2021 6th-rounder, averaged 2.4 yards on 36 carries last year.
  • Consider Spiller the favorite to win that #2 RB job. We’ll see if he can cut into Ekeler’s volume, though. In Ekeler’s 16 games last season, other Chargers RBs averaged just 7.6 carries and 1.4 targets per game.
  • Speaking on the Move the Sticks Podcast, NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks said he believes rookie RB Isaiah Spiller is a “true #1” type of talent. “I would not be surprised to see him emerge as a star-quality player for the Chargers,” Brooks added.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Spiller sports a nice college production profile. But he tested as a well-below-average athlete and slipped to the 4th round of this spring’s draft.

Spiller shouldn’t face much resistance from Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree for the #2 spot on the Chargers’ RB depth chart. But he’ll need to capture some of Austin Ekeler’s work if he’s going to be a standalone fantasy value this season. He’s more likely to just be an Ekeler handcuff.

Austin Ekeler, RB LAC

10:04pm EST 11/27/22

Ekeler barely used as runner, loads up on targets

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler racked up 15 targets and 11 catches in Sunday's late win over the Cardinals, snagging a 1-yard TD with 15 seconds left that set up the game-winning 2-point conversion. Ekeler needed that receiving production to make up for a mere 5-20 rushing line. Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller carried 2 times apiece and combined for 4 targets. It was Kelley's 1st game since a Week 6 knee injury landed him on IR. Kelley played 6 more snaps than Spiller but also less than one-third of Ekeler's total. Next comes a generous Raiders D.

Chargers RB Sony Michel is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Cardinals. That leaves Isaiah Spiller and Joshua Kelley behind lead back Austin Ekeler.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler caught just 2 passes for 17 yards in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs, setting season lows in each category. But he carried a season-high 19 times for 83 yards (4.4 per rush) and a TD. It was Ekeler's 6th game among the past 7 with at least 1 rushing score. Isaiah Spiller followed him in the backfield, drawing 4 carries (11 yards) and 2 targets (2 catches, 11 yards) in roughly one-third of Ekeler's playing time. Sony Michel totaled just 5 snaps and converted a 3rd-and-1 with his only carry. The Chargers find positive rushing matchups each of the next 2 weeks -- but challenges beyond that -- according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday with an abdomen issue. He spoke to reporters before the workout and made no mention of an injury, so it looks like this happened during Thursday's practice. We'll see what Ekeler does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report. His absence vs. the Falcons this weekend would leave Sony Michel as Los Angeles' likely lead back, with rookie Isaiah Spiller the #2.

Chargers RB Joshua Kelley (knee) will miss at least the next 4 games after landing on IR on Saturday. His absence leaves Sony Michel as Los Angeles' #2 RB for now. We'll see if rookie RB Isaiah Spiller can make a push for that job.

Dynasty Write-up
Spiller slipped to Round 4 of the 2022 draft, then saw light usage behind Austin Ekeler. You have to love a Chargers offense led by Justin Herbert. But Ekeler — nearly 28 — is signed through the 2023 season.
