Austin Ekeler is one of the few change-of-pace backs behind a proven stud who could still end up producing quality standalone fantasy numbers in 2019. Ekeler finished the 2018 season as the No.27 fantasy running back and he did that while himself missing two games due to injury. He touched the ball 145 times on the season, which is roughly 10 times per game, and he produced impressive numbers both as a runner (5.2 yards per attempt) and as a pass catcher (10.4 yards per reception). He's now eclipsed five yards per rush and 10 yards per reception in each of his two NFL seasons, so those numbers appear to be more of a trend than a mirage.

Unfortunately, we've now seen that Ekeler's touches seem to be capped at around 17 even in games when Melvin Gordon is out with an injury. The team seemingly does not trust him to produce as a bell cow which does limit his upside potential of becoming an RB1 for fantasy, even on a weekly basis. While we have to like the weekly numbers he produces, the lack of upside does make him less appealing than some of the other backs who are being drafted near him that could potentially turn into every-down backs if things break right for them this season. Still, Ekeler makes for a nice, solid, high-floor play in deep leagues PPR leagues.
