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 (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.
The Chargers have placed RB Austin Ekeler on the active roster. It's an indication -- although not a guarantee -- that he'll return for Sunday's game against the Bills. We'll find out for sure when inactives are announced at 11:30 am ET tomorrow. If he plays, Ekeler will carry elevated risk in his 1st action since Week 4. But he'll also boast RB1 upside in this explosive, Herbert-led offense.
The Chargers are set to activate RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) from IR, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Ekeler will return to practice this week, although it's still uncertain if he'll play against the Bills on Sunday. We'll monitor his progress. Ekeler should quickly re-emerge as a RB1 -- especially in PPR -- in the Justin Herbert-led Chargers offense.
Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that RB Austin Ekeler will be back "later rather than sooner," according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic. Lynn added that Ekeler's hamstring injury is "very serious." The initial recovery timeline called for Ekeler missing 4-6 weeks. This week will make 3 since the injury, and it's sounding like we should expect at least the longer end of that.
Don't be afraid to stash an extra defense now to help you win that fantasy championship.5:12pm EST 12/2/20 Read More
