Chargers RB Austin Ekeler will miss the rest of the season with a broken hand suffered in Saturday night's loss to the Chiefs. The rookie averaged 5.1 carries and 2.8 targets over the past 8 games. The majority of that action figures to go to RB Melvin Gordon over the final 2 weeks. Branden Oliver will step in as the #2 RB.
Update: HC Anthony Lynn said Monday that Ekeler could play the final 2 games of the season with a cast on his broken hand. He obviously wouldn't be an asset in the passing game, though.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bills. RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) is inactive, so it’ll be Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Troymaine Pope in the backfield. We’ll see just how much Ekeler plays in his 1st action since Week 4, but we’d lean toward getting him back into fantasy lineups. There’s big upside here in a likely shootout vs. the Bills’ 22nd-ranked RB defense.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is expected to get "significant carries" against the Bills today. We'll see exactly how much action he gets on the ground -- but Ekeler should also be busy in the passing game. He has RB1 upside today.
