Lynn said Ekeler will be evaluated further Saturday.

Our View: Consider Ekeler a what the heck flex or PPR RB2 if he can go on Sunday. The Chargers are likely to err on the side of holding him out, but you never know.

Chargers | Austin Ekeler to practice this week (Tue Nov 24, 02:15 PM) - Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (hamstring) is set to return to practice for the first time this week since suffering a significant hamstring injury in Week 4, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Our View: A good sign for the Chargers best back here. It remains uncertain if Ekeler will play in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills. We'll see how Ekeler looks once he's out there and if the team wants to build his stamina for a week or so in practice. Upon his return, Ekeler has RB1 every-week starter potential for Fantasy GMs in PPR formats.
