The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to select a starting-caliber running back in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft. The team views RBs Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland Jr. and Kalen Ballage as backup options but does not believe they are dynamic enough to be considered featured backs.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage rushed seven times for 34 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots and he added three grabs for five yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The game got out of hand, so he probably saw a little more work with the team holding out Austin Ekeler, who just recently returned from injury. Had the score been closer, the Bolts would have presumably leaned upon Ekeler more. We'll see in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons in what should be a closer game.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: With Austin Ekeler once again leading the backfield, Ballage is back to being a handcuff rather than a potential fantasy starter.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) has been declared inactive for the Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: Austin Ekeler is back in the lineup and should receive most of the work at running back moving forward. Ekeler should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues, while Ballage could be cut if a player needs roster space.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) is considered a game-time decision for Week 12's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Ballage had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. If he is active, he could be a flex option for deeper fantasy leagues, especially considering that RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is not likely to serve as the bell cow in his first game since returning from a major hamstring injury.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Ballage is able to play and if Austin Ekeler will return to the lineup. Ballage can be at least a flex option if he receives most of the work at running back.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) is listed as questionable on the team's Week 12 injury report.
Huddle Up: Ballage has been limited in practice this week, and those wanting to keep him plugged in as a RB2 will likely have to wait until pregame Sunday to get the final determination on his status.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Kalen Ballage (ankle, calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Ballage appears to have a decent chance to play despite the injury, but fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He will receive most of the work at running back if he plays and can be at least a flex option.
