Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers vs. Indianapolis Colts
As the Melvin Gordon contract holdout continues, Ekeler is looking like the long view option for the Chargers. There’s still trade talks that are being floated out there but owners just need to assume that Ekeler is getting the start no matter what and could be sitting at the top of the depth chart until Gordon’s future becomes clearer. Ekeler will hold his own, too. He is versatile in both passing and run plays. Justin Jackson is in the mix, but Ekeler should get himself 15 touches against a respectable Colts defense.
