Chargers RB Austin Ekeler aggravated a neck issue Sunday and appears in doubt for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Ekeler will need further testing on the area, which had experienced "stingers" in recent weeks. The short turnaround for Week 15 obviously makes things more difficult. The Chargers might get Melvin Gordon back from his knee injury for that game. If not, they'd have to turn to rookie Justin Jackson as the backfield starter. Jackson hit Sunday still available in 57% of ESPN leagues.
Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Friday that RB Austin Ekeler will play "a lot" vs. the Broncos this weekend and that RB Melvin Gordon will get a limited workload. The plan makes sense after Gordon held out all summer and September. Plans can change once the game starts, but we're now projecting something close to a 2-to-1 split in favor of Ekeler this week.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (groin) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so he comes with added risk in fantasy lineups -- beyond the difficult matchup.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after a limited week of practice. This is a new injury for Ekeler. (He missed time late in the season with a neck injury and concussion.) If Ekeler is unable to play this weekend, the Chargers would turn back to rookie Justin Jackson as the change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (neck) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. He figures to see a handful of touches behind Melvin Gordon and is just a DFS tournament flier.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler was placed in the concussion protocol after experiencing symptoms on Monday afternoon. He's also dealing with that neck injury and looks extremely unlikely to play against the Chiefs on Thursday night. The question now becomes whether RB Melvin Gordon can return from his knee injury for that one. If not, rookie Justin Jackson will operate as the Chargers' feature back.
