2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
Any concerns that Ekeler's breakthrough 2021 performance was a fluke were resoundingly allayed last year when he racked up 1,637 yards and 18 touchdowns while appearing in all 17 games. The Chargers balked at handing the 28-year-old a new contract, which led to a trade request, but ultimately LA tweaked the final year of his deal to bring back their No. 1 back. In a mild surprise, the team made no notable additions at the position, so unless someone takes a major step forward there's little reason to believe we won't see a heavy dose of Ekeler again in 2023.

That "little reason," however, is the hiring of Moore, who oversaw a two-headed backfield in Dallas over the past few seasons and may want to divvy up the touches a bit more. Again, though, it's far from clear that LA has anyone on roster capable of handling a Tony Pollard-sized role. Unless someone emerges during the preseason, operate under the assumption that Ekeler will be the bell cow again this year and value him accordingly. He's an option to be the first back selected, and one could argue he carries fewer question marks than other names in the discussion: McCaffrey and Barkley (durability), Jacobs and Taylor (contract), and Bijan Robinson (inexperience).

No RBs expected to the get the franchise tag
Deep free agent RB class in 2024
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 26, 2:53 pm

New York Giants
This offseason stands in contrast to 2023, when Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard received franchise tags. This offseason, it appears no RBs will be tagged, making this one of the finest and deepest RB classes in the history of free agency. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: The 2024 free agent RB class is stacked with Jacobs, Barkley, Pollard, Derrick Henry and Austin Ekeler. The question is, what kind of deals are these veterans going to get? We've seen the market slowly dry up for veteran RBs over the last few years with Jacobs and Barkley settling for one-year deals just last season. Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones are also cut candidates given the money their going to count against the salary cap this season.
