From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 14): Ekeler got a lot of work as a runner and looked good, but he probably not getting goal line carries and his lack of targets from Tyrod Taylor was disturbing. The Chargers could correct and give him more targets this week vs Kansas City, but Ekeler's outlook has dimmed one way or the other.

General News (Mon Sep 14): will remain a priority in the offense moving forward, but head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters Monday, Sept. 14, that the new scheme will limit check downs to running backs.

Chargers | More of the same ahead for Austin Ekeler? (Mon Sep 14, 04:47 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler will remain a priority in the offense moving forward, but head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters Monday, Sept. 14, that the new scheme will limit check downs to running backs.

Our View: Ekeler got almost seven targets per game in 2019 but in the season opener he was targeted just one time. More of the same means that Ekeler won't be targeted as much. In games where the Chargers fall behind, Ekeler should see plenty of passes thrown his way. However, if the game is close then we should see something like what we saw in Week 1. Ekeler is still a RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.
