2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
An explosive playmaker out of the backfield, Austin Ekeler surprised many when he burst onto the scene in 2017 and took some playing time from Melvin Gordon, particularly on obvious passing downs. It was on a limited sample size, but Ekeler's 7.3 yards per touch were among the best in the league for any running back and it's not as if that production came out of nowhere. Ekeler was a big-time producer in college where he rushed for over 1,000 yards in all four seasons in addition to making plays as a pass catcher and scoring a total of 73 career offensive touchdowns.

Ekeler would presumably be in for at least a slight uptick in touches this season if the Chargers hadn't selected Justin Jackson in the NFL Draft this past April. Jackson himself rushed for 1,000 yards in all four seasons in college and would almost certainly split backfield duties with Ekeler if Gordon were to go down. As it stands, neither Ekeler nor Gordon is likely to have much standalone value unless you're playing in very deep PPR formats where Ekeler might be worth a late-round flier selection. He could see 40 to 50 receptions this season which would make him a viable option for those in need at the running back position.
