Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, and the Chiefs have allowed the most rushing yards (404), the most rushing touchdowns (7) and the most yards per rush (6.0) of any team in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Ekeler is already one of the steadiest producers at the running back spot thanks to his impact as a receiver, and he be headed for a big week against a struggling Kansas City defense.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler rushed nine times for 54 yards and caught all nine of his targets for 61 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2.
Huddle Up: After failing to catch a pass in the season opener, Ekeler was back to his busy self against the Cowboys. He should be good for around 20 total touches, a handful of catches and 100 total yards most weeks.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler didn't catch a pass but ran 24 routes on 46 snaps against the Washington Football Team in Week 1.
Huddle Up: While it was unusual to see Ekeler finish without a reception, he was still involved in the passing game. The catches will come, and fantasy owners can expect more of a typical line from Ekeler against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Austin Ekeler ran 15 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Ekeler didn't have a catch or target in the pass game, but fantasy managers should still be happy with the performance thanks to the touchdown. He remains a low-end RB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 2 against the visiting Dallas Cowboys.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is considered a 'full-go' for Week 1's game against the Washington Football Team, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Ekeler had been listed as questionable on the injury report after missing two mid-week practice sessions as a precautionary measure but he looked impressive while working out Friday, Sept. 10. Seasonal fantasy owners, especially those with PPR leagues, should start Ekeler with confidence this afternoon.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 1's game against the Washington Football Team, barring any setbacks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Ekeler had been listed as questionable on the injury report after only participating in one practice session during the week on a limited basis, although he reportedly looked impressive. He should be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he is active this afternoon, although owners should have alternatives available just in case his condition changes suddenly.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) looked good during practice Friday, Sept. 10, and has a good chance to play in Week 1, according to head coach Brandon Staley.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to see if Ekeler is able to play in the opener. He should be a starting option if he plays, but fantasy players will need a backup plan ready just in case.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 10, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Ekeler likely will be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He will be a risky fantasy option if he plays but can still be in fantasy lineups if he is active.
Posted: 9/10/2021 7:14 pm GMT
Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: We'll find out later in the day if he was limited at all, but the fact he was running on the side Thursday suggests the Chargers were being cautious with him earlier in the week. While fantasy managers should hold onto Justin Jackson is in case, this is great news for anyone counting on Ekeler suiting up in Week 1 in a difficult matchup against the Washington Football Team.
